Bonnie Mckee - 'Marble Steps' lyrics

I climb the marble stairs that lead away
Away from everything I used to know
I try to keep my eyes down on the way
The way my mother told me not to go

Well, all I ever wanted was a hand to hold me down
To keep the sky from swallowing me up
And all I ever needed was someone to come around
And tell me that I’ve suffered long enough

So take me away
Find me a home
I’m on my way
I’m on my way…yeah

I wonder when I’ll see the stars again
I thought that they had faded long ago
Another step I’m closer to the end
I’m climbing cause I don’t know where to go

Well, all I ever wanted was a place to store my faith
I thought that I could keep it locked away
It burns my eyes to look at him and see the truth inside
And so I turned my broken face away

So take me away
Find me a home
I’m on my way
I’m on my way…yeah

I always dreamed of Sundays, together with you
Only your echoes can break my heart
I need a hand to hold me, to keep me on there
I fear I’m drifting too far apart

Well, all I ever wanted was a hand to hold me down
To keep the sky from swallowing me up
And all I ever needed was someone to come around
And tell me that I’ve suffered long enough

Oh… take me away
Find me a home
I’m on my way
I’m on my way…yeah
I’m on my way…yeah
I’m on my way…yeah
I’m on my way…yeah

You know I’m gone
I’m gone
I’m on my way…yeah
