Lyrics

Without Your Breath by Ileana Burdine

Again I ask myself what is wrong with me
Not an onion, not in layers something underneath
I am clay waiting to be molded
But you're a wait-and-see kind of guy
So I waited watching myself washed away in falling rain
Muddy clumps of water to the ocean, running through the drains
Lost in a sea with no body
As incomplete as tiny grains of sand

Calling out for guidance, for you to shine your light
Without some direction I am nearly petrified
Animate, motivate, re-create me, faith is all that's left
Want to make the right move but I am
I am stone without your breath

Dreaming in the darkness I listened for my name
I am ready to be called my life is yours to claim
I am here but I cannot hear you
Some days I fear that I never will
Your voice a quiet whisper while I'm lying in my bed
It's drowned in rushing freeways streams of talking in my head
When you speak, static, silence
A comedy I'm watching without sound

Calling out for guidance, for you to shine your light
Without some direction I am nearly petrified
Animate, motivate, re-create me, faith is all that's left
Want to make the right move but I am
I am stone without your breath
