lyrics

Wounds heal, scars fade away
Don’t lose yourself, don’t throw yourself away

You’ve wandered through the desert
Beneath the daggers of the sun
Meandered through the mangroves
‘Till you don’t know which way that you have come
Under cloudy beards of mountains
You’ve held a dying candle to your breast
Now it’s time
To come in from the wilderness

Wounds heal, scars fade away
Don’t lose yourself, don’t throw yourself away

Got a hammer in your hand
Still breaking rocks with your head
Trying to walk on water
With your shoes full of lead

Wounds heal, scars fade away
Don’t lose yourself, don’t throw yourself away

When I found you in the wilderness, naked and alone
How I tried to comfort you, tried to take you home
Now that I am older, now that I am grown
I know that you’ll have to find your way back on your own
So come in from the wilderness, come in from the wilderness

When I found you in the tall grass, naked and alone
I wanted to comfort you; I wanted to take you home
But now that I am older, now that I am grown
I know that you’ll have to find your way back on your own
So come in from the wilderness, come in from the wilderness

And you are you, and that is all
You are not Eve in the garden before the Fall
You are you, and no one else,
You are not a robot sent from the future to destroy yourself
You are no one’s nightmare, and you are no one’s dream
You are nothing and exactly like you seem

So come in from the wilderness
Come in from the wilderness
