Like The Wheel - The Tallest Man on Earth

I wish I was the sparrow in you kid's side
That could fly above this summer all day long
On an island in the heart he has to carry
Past the many you have let into your song

And I said "oh my lord, why am I not strong?"
Like the wheel that keeps travelers travelling on
Like the wheel that will take me home

In the forest someone whispering to a tree now
This is all I am so please don't follow me
And its your brother in the shaft that I'm a-swinging
Please let the kindness of forgetting set me free

And he said "oh my lord, why am I not strong?"
Like the wheel that keeps travelers traveling on
Like the wheel that will take you home

And on this Sunday someone's sitting down to wonder
"Where the hell among these mountains will I be?"
There's a cloud behind the cloud to which I'm yelling
Oh, I could hear you sneak around so easily

And I said "oh my lord, why am I not strong?"
Like the branch that keeps hangmen hanging on
Like the branch that will take me home
