The Peace of Wild Things
by Paper Route



 

Under the eyelids
Under the eyelids
Thatís where youíre hiding
Thatís where youíre hiding

Like Iím a stranger
Signaling danger
But Iím a beggar
But Iím a beggar

Take me back
Take me home
You were right
All Along
You are where I belong

If thereís a sonnet
That makes you feel wanted
Then sugar Iím on it
Sugar Iím on it

A world in a world
A shell to a pearl
Is how Iíll protect you
Iíll always protect you

Take me back
Take me home
You were right
All along
You are where I belong
Where I belong

All I am
All I am
Iíve given you all I am
Given you all I am
You are where I belong

If Iím the great sea
Youíre what Iím reflecting
Blue in the evening
So blue in the evening

You hit like the lightning
A beauty so frightening
The Earth was dividing
The Earth was dividing



Behind the Song:
(Chad) This song was actually quite difficult to write. There were many incarnations and interpretations, but the three of us felt like it was an important song so we kept fighting to finish it. This is one of the few songs where JT left some of my lyrics in the verses, which takes a lot of security on his part. I was writing about the girl who would eventually become my wife, because we were in love but scared of committing to each other for life (at least I was). Everyone loved the verses but we didnít know where to take it from there. JT kept coming back to the lyric, ďyou are where I belongĒ. I swear he tried to put it into a few different songs! When JT wants to say something, heíll find a way to say it! It made perfect sense with the verse lyrics. Then we also took a chorus from a demo JT did called ďHoneycombĒ and it just tied everything together.
