about

Written by Rachel Erin Robinson.

lyrics

when I'm looking for comfort
I think of the cold hard wood
of my mama's piano bench
and my too-long sleeves
your face when you're sleeping
your thoughts curling up in dreams
wrapping me up
keeping me warm

always trying to find her
I'm looking behind the breeze
that blows on the ocean
sailing the ships to sea
always coming back again
sailing back home to me
sailing back home

I found her
a queen on her throne
lay down my head beside her
slept soundly in a world of my own
but when I woke I was alone

when he's looking for comfort
he thinks of that long hard ride
to the park in the summer
the sky open big and wide
the peeling of oranges
the taste of the air in spring
jumping into the water
the way that we sing

always trying to find her
he looks to that distant grace
that was taken in childhood
the trust that they chased away
he uses his fingers
to sort through the cold remains

I found her
a queen on her throne
lay down my head beside her
slept soundly in a world of my own
but when I woke I was alone

when I'm looking for comfort
I think of the cold hard wood
of my mama's piano bench
and my too-long sleeves
