The Handsome Family – Grandmother Waits for YouLyrics
Grandmother waits for you with a pair of new shoes in a land where the leaves never brown.
The hills are scattered with empty wheelchairs and hearing aids thrown to the ground.
The long night is over.
The shadow has passed and farewells forever are done.
No more fear, no more cold.
Earth and sky painted gold.
In the land where we’ll never grow old.
The peacock and snake, the wolf and the lamb, all creatures find peace in time.
These perfect white shores are littered with jewels falling like rain from the sky.
Mother and baby walk into the waves no longer fearing the tides.
