lyrics

can you feel the stones, the ones that lead you home?
can you see the light, it's hanging from a post?
all the kids are in, they're waiting out the storm
when the rain is here it's nice to keep them close

I've been walking in the rooms your parents dressed
I've been walking in your steps
and your father's is a face I've come to know
a familiar ghost, I guess

but, Genevieve
she is the only one who is absent from the frame
but, Genevieve
she gave you your name

can you hear the boats out there on the lake?
can you hear the cars all headed up today?
in the August sun the summer fades away
but, it's nice to know we'll always have this place

in all the images of you from younger days
you look so beautiful and wise
but, the thing that takes my very breath away
is the focus in your eyes

Genevieve
knew you were losing light when your eyes were cloudy blue
but, Genevieve
she saw you

Genevieve
would have seen your hands as they learned to make new things
and, Genevieve
she heard you sing

can you feel the stones, the ones that lead you home?
