Vigil

On the third night, our town beneath the hunter’s moon
Keeping vigil, your kin watching over you
Fighting for each breath, just a bag of bones
You’re losing but you won’t let go
I try to understand, all the strength you’ve shown
In vain though I hope you know

You are not alone
You are not alone
You are not alone
You are not alone

Awake for days and watched through tears, each sunrise
I feel so grateful, to have the chance to say goodbye
The beauty of this life, everything we’ve known
In time we have to let them go
What’s in our and blood, in a flesh and bone
What truth I hope that you still know

You are not alone
You are not alone
You are not alone
Ooooh You are not alone

I’ve seen sufferers, kindness, at its highest
These painful days
We’re all in need of healing, just human beings
Easy to break

You are not alone
You are not alone
You are not alone
You are not alone

My mother, my sister, my two brothers
We can lean on and support each other
My mother, my sister, my two brothers
We can lean on and support each other

You are not alone, oooooooooh
You are not alone, oooooooooh

Song Notes

Tim said of the song:

It’s about the actual time that my dad died and we were at his bedside. We were by his bedside for three days, holding his hand, some of us sleeping on the floor and watching the sun come up over the mountains outside every morning. It was a really hard time, but kind of a beautiful time as well, with the closeness of the family. We were glad that we all got to be there and share that time together.
