Take More Than You Need

Wait with me for just a while
When the water in me dries

Stay with me all afternoon
When the spirit in me moves

If you’re lying awake
With a lifetime to go
And the thoughts that you take with you
Take more than you know

There… where you build your house of prayer
Thoughts that tangle in your hair
While the world around you stares

If you’re lying awake
With my hands on your waist
Wondering what you can take from me
Take more than you need

I’m not long for this world, baby
So much just fell miles behind me

I don’t long for this world baby
Half a life fell miles behind me
