The Empty Chair - Sting

words to study

If I should close my eyes, that my soul can see,

And there's a place at the table that you saved for me.

So many thousand miles over land and sea,

I hope to dare, that you hear my prayer,

And somehow I'll be there.

It's but a concrete floor where my head will lay,

And though the walls of this prison are as cold as clay.

But there's a shaft of light where I count my days,
