Time

How much is distance?
How much is pain?
How must is seeing that little girl's face?
How much is rain?
I've plenty of time to think and wish and pray
for the things I'll never deserve...

I read of hope, I read of glory.
I read of mothers, of brothers with dreams;
I read G-d's stories.
I've plenty of time to sit and think upon
this life I have earned.
So once in a while I think on sin and The Word.

[Chorus]
Just how long is a minute on a life spent in here,
under cover of bars, and years upon years?
When you've long since lost count of the worst of your fears,
yet you grieve for the sun and the sky.

Last night I heard my saviour calling.
I laid up all night and prayed I'd be gone come morning.
Cause all of the time I hope and pray ain't much,
though this time I might learn.
So once in a while I think on sin and The Word.

[Chorus]

Long is the night. Longer is evening.
I close my eyes and imagine the stars on the ceiling.
I never took time to stop and think about what life meant to her.
So most of the time I think on sin and The Word.

Just how long is a minute on a life spent in here,
under cover of bars, and years upon years?
Well, I've long since lost count of the worst of my fears,
still I grieve for the sun and the sky.
