lyrics

Pillars

Composed by Allison Crowe
As performed by Allison Crowe and Band

After all of the storms
Are come and gone
I can’t really be sure
This is my pillar to stand on

I’ve watched it crumble and fall
Right at your feet, and
There aren’t enough turns in the world
To force these paths to meet

Chorus:

I can’t breathe
So open a window
It’s freezing
So close it again
You say: It hurts when I do this
I say: So why do that
This silence is killing me
But it isn’t as hard as the fall

So what do I do?
I guess I just wait
‘cause trying to force time
Is just tempting fate

I am reasonably sure
There’s no easy solution
And I have never been good
At conflict resolution

Chorus:

And I can’t breathe
So open a window
It’s freezing
So close it again
You say: It hurts when I do this
I say: So why do that
This silence is killing me
But it isn’t as hard as the fall

There’s a stillness here now
A curious sort of quiet
And my only strength left
Is the comfort in leading the riot

And I can’t make you believe
In God I haven’t respected
Not until my own certainty
In the fates has resurrected

Chorus:

And I can’t breathe
So open a window
It’s freezing
So close it again
You say: It hurts when I do this
So why in the Hell would you do that
This silence is killing me
But it isn’t as hard as the fall

My pillar to stand on
And I don’t know, I don’t know…
This is my pillar to stand on…

This is my pillar to stand on
