A Place Of My Own

This song is by John Mark Nelson and appears on the album Sings the Moon (2014).

Early morning light shines, soon stirred from a dream
Where the shirts lay folded carefully with hands so clean
Cold winds call at the door, but get no reply
This was once a home that welcomed in the world outside
Ooh

I saw life in this home, learned love in her womb
Now I scarcely recognize the place that I once knew
Darkness hangs in the hall, kept clean by your hand
And the floorboards whisper "They no longer understand"
Ooh

You feel surrounded
So you hide upon the floor and close your eyes
A heart so far away
That leaves so many memories behind

Learned to call you by name, and look in your eye
Learned to trust you with the story of my lonesome life
Now I smile to think, what else can I do
I surrender to my longing for a love with you
Ooh

You feel surrounded
So you hide upon the floor and close your eyes
A heart so far away
That leaves so many memories behind

One last look as she stands, my shelter so true
Knowing all the laughter she will bring to someone new
May the mountain be far, and river so deep
I will raise you for the secrets you will learn to keep
Ooh
