amen omen lyrics – ben harper

what started as a whisper,
slowly turned in to a scream.
searching for an answer
where the question is unseen.
i don’t know where you came from
and i dont know where you’ve gone.
old friends become old strangers
between the darkness and the dawn

amen omen,will i see your face again?
amen omen,can i find the place within
to live my life without you?

i still hear you saying
“all of life is chance,
and is sweetest,is sweetest when at a glance”
but i live,
i live a hundred lifetimes in a day.
but i die a little
in every breath that i take.

amen omen,will i see your face again?
amen omen,can i find the place within
to live my life without you?

i listen to a whisper,
slowly drift away.
silence is a loudest,
parting word you never say.
i put i put your world
into my veins
now a voiceless sympathy
is all that remains.

amen omen,will i see your face again?
amen omen,can i find the place within
to live my life without you?

amen omen,can i find the strength within
