lyrics

Awake with watchful sleepless eye,
I struggle in the dark
A quiet watcher sitting by,
She offers up a single spark:
"Tell me of your loves, your losses,
Your worries and your woes -
We all bear our crosses, darlin',
I know just how it goes."

Grandmother,
Grandmother mine,
Grandmother,
Grandmother time

You have seen so many things
You've traveled many roads
You have known the depth of pain
And you have lived with ghosts
In your eyes I see the wisdom of all you've come to learn
And in your face I see mine reflected in turn

Grandmother,
Grandmother mine,
Grandmother,
Grandmother time

Would you stay with me
And pass the time awhile?
Oh would you stay with me,
'Till the sun rises?

Grandmother,
Grandmother mine,
Grandmother,
Grandmother time
