Mary Chapin Carpenter - Jericho Lyrics




You can’t see me yet
Seeing takes a long, long time
From the outside in
Measuring each shift and sigh

But as you let your eyes adjust
To the darkness deep within
Sifting through the ash and dust
We are the places that we’ve been

You can’t hear me yet
Listening takes a long, long time
And I’ve so much to tell
But words die on these lips of mine

But in the stillness you may sense
Every thing I long to say
Unraveling like golden threads
The walls will all come down this way

You don’t know me yet
Knowing takes a long, long time
And time is all we have
Never traveling in straight lines

So memorize each turn and twist
Just be careful as you go
For if love is a labyrinth
Then my heart is Jericho

    "Jericho"

    You can’t see me yet
    Seeing takes a long, long time
    From the outside in
    Measuring each shift and sigh

    But as you let your eyes adjust
    To the darkness deep within
    Sifting through the ash and dust
    We are the places that we’ve been

    You can’t hear me yet
    Listening takes a long, long time
    And I’ve so much to tell
    But words die on these lips of mine

    But in the stillness you may sense
    Every thing I long to say
    Unraveling like golden threads
    The walls will all come down this way

    You don’t know me yet
    Knowing takes a long, long time
    And time is all we have
    Never traveling in straight lines

    So memorize each turn and twist
    Just be careful as you go
    For if love is a labyrinth
    Then my heart is Jericho
