By far the most personal of my songs. The lyrics are probably hard to interpret by anyone but me and that's kind of how I like it.

Capo 4
 

D                               D                                   G                      G
Turning home at night, shadows lengthen, light pales with grace.
D                          D                            G                      G
For a calm respite, careless time in a careworn place.
A                 G                               D                        D
And every peaceful morning brings something new. 
A                G                       D        D
A pinch of kindness here, in part.

Turning back the clock to a memory of life in bloom.
Does it help or not? Does it brighten this faded room?
When every simple moment pains me anew.
The toll paid for a lifelong vow.

Turning home at last, shadows lengthen, light pales with grace.
Staring down the past, careless time in a careworn place.
And every simple moment pains me anew.
The toll paid for a lifelong vow.
