​Comet

This song is by Pierce Pettis and appears on the album Everything Matters (1998).

A comet streaked across the sky while I was sleeping,
Broke into a million pieces in the night,
Missed us by so little; passed us by so close,
It was right there, and we didn't even know.

Doesn't God look out for children and for fools who can blindly stumble right into the truth?
Till all the pieces fit into a grand design,
A brilliant accident we had it coming all this time.

Oh, seek and you shall find it - that is what they say,
Just give it time and don't get lost along the way,
Well, I've been a long time waiting out here beneath the sky,
As if love could find me like that comet in the night.

Does a heart falling in the forest make a sound other than the pounding axe that brings it down?
Or is it up to me to tell the forest from the trees?
And does it matter if there's no one else around?

Seek and you shall find it - that is what they say,
Just give it time and don't get in your own way,
Well, I've been a long time waiting out here beneath the sky,
As if love could find me like that comet in the night.

I gaze up at the stars and wonder,
I could see the lights are on,
Is anybody home?

Seek and you shall find it - that is what they say,
Just give it time; don't get lost along the way,
Yeah, I've been a long time waiting out here beneath the sky,
As if love could find me like that comet in the night,
Oh, as if love could find me like that comet in the night,
Yeah, as if love could find me like that comet in the night.

A comet streaked across the sky while I was sleeping.
