Melissa Ferrick, “Rest Now”


you wanted to be invisible
so you got on stage
away from the crowds
back doors and bars your favorite place
but singing is lonely
lonely is dark
but under those bright lights
you came alive
big eyes
small hands yes
you sang so beautiful
it made my heart hit the ground
bird on a wire
you’re a man on the verge
you deserve
to rest now
rest now
rest now
nobody knows not even you
the depth of your sadness
why that chain is dragging you
you said it’s best if we just listen, to see ourselves
in the eyes of strangers
we will recognize
our own hotel vast horizon
big eyes
small hands
you sang so beautiful
it made my heart hit the ground
bird on a wire
you’re a man on the verge
you deserve
to rest now
rest now
rest now
in the eyes of strangers we will recognize
our own hotel vast horizon
