music by Todd Nichols, lyrics by Glen Phillips
Are you given vision
Are you second sight
Are you older than your life
Eighty days of sorrow
Still you child burn bright

And you see me crying again
And you hold out your little hand
Lead me shaking to his room
I thought I’d never see again

Close the door behind you
Turning out the light
Press a flashlight up against the wall
You say “This is how we knew him
In a little egg
It opened up and this is daddy now”

Now you’re stepping back towards me
‘Till the room is bathing in light
And the answer there before me
There’s no ending when we die

Are you sleeping here beside me
Are you shining bright as the sky
Are you breathing now inside me
There’s no ending when we die
