lyrics

Your countenance leads me to believe that
We are at a complete understanding
We have found a release for our conflicts
But we both know that that's not the case

And when you find me I'll be sifting through the waves in the air
That surround all the words that we said when we meant something else
And I'll try to make my way in your direction

Your countenance calms me and reminds me
That I can't seem to break from my instincts
And I can't seem to get you to notice
That I can't seem to turn you away

So you show me a piece of the engine that
Fell from our craft as we fell from the sky
And you watch as I run from the room
To escape from the rest of the falling debris

And when you find me I'll be sifting through the waves in the air
That surround all the words that we said when we meant something else
And I'll try to make my way in your direction

Your countenance causes me to worry
That you've come to the end of a story
And you're not satisfied with the closure
But I know there are words left to write

So you show me your hand and I take it
All falls from our thoughts as we fall from the sky
And we watch as the earth runs towards us
Then parachutes of thought float us down

And when you find me I'll be sifting through the waves in the air
That surround all the words that we said when we meant something else
And I'll try to make my way in your direction

Your countenance has a certain something
Like a mixture of question and answer
And you can't help but cause me to wonder
If it's all just a trick of the light

So I put out the candles
And you disappear, and I feel like a fool
But I know you're still there
Because I can still hear when your steps cross the room

And your features emerge from the silence
I'm taken aback by that look in your eyes
And I watch as the starlight reveals you to be something
Elegant and beautiful and new

And when you find me I'll be sifting through the waves in the air
That surround all the words that we said when we meant something else
And I'll try to make my way in your direction

Your countenance
Forces me to realize that
Everything is going to be just fine
