Oh the fresh Autumn breeze Flows through my chest and then out to the East I'm finding my feet in these new surroundings Take in your first breath and hold and release See how it changes year after year I start to lose count of how long I've been here But I still recall every step on these streets From the dust on my shoes and the soles of my feet How I long to return to somewhere I've never been So I'll walk to the end to walk back to the start again Oh the cold Autumn sun Won't let me forget how my time marches on And I can't keep up as it races away Like my midday shadow, getting longer each day And out in the dark all the kids start to sing It's so long since I did that sort of thing Fresh faced and bright eyed wet behind the ears And six years behind having reason to care Was I ever so young? Was I ever so free? Oh the road has been long but there's so much more to see Oh take me back... Time will remember each beat of your heart And tick-tock away all the memories you've wrought As the road leads away you look back where you've been Let an old journey end to let a new one begin
Masquerade 04:23
Into me, oh you sink your teeth My heart beats to fill your needs I am bee-line for the bait you feed I succumb to what you speak And I know this must seem strange Playing games that you have never played Over sounds that we both resonate I turn you the other way So suit me so well, keep me at arms length Masquerading, entertain yourself again Just pretending that you're holding someone else while I'm here So confusing is this fusion of ourselves So curious uncharted waters that you sail in me Did you ever think of the damage you could do? Think for a minute that I could fall in love with you?
If I may be so bold I think it's time for things to change If I take control we'll go wherever you say I'll turn to the south it's time I was leaving for you I promise you this time we'll see it through We'll be OK in the end, we can escape like you said Make up for lost time and the best laid plans We'll write our own stories with our lives in our hands We'll run from the city and we'll move to the sea And live out our days in each other's company We'll be OK in the end, we can escape like you said We'll make a life out of what we've found We'll sit and watch the world going around I don't know when and I don't know how There's no way I could turn back now Some say it's strange, and I guess it is But when it all comes together it'll star to make sense I can face tomorrow but I need you with me If I have to keep waiting that's OK with me We'll be OK in the end, we can escape like you said
April Sun 03:04
Stunning sun through my window break, A year long sleep from which I awake, Had that dream again the whole night Cold as winter April sun comes to warm my bones Awake my senses and shake my soul As I reflect in a new light I'm turning into Where we go is not up to us Life will be what it makes itself So hold on just to let go Unmade plans in an unmade head So unsure what it was I said Changing rhythms, changing ways Still moving on Broken promises I made myself Leaving futures to circumstance Counting hours, counting days Still move along Where we are and where we go It's not what you decide, it's not what you know So head up, 'cause it's not Summer yet 'Cause if it's something we're meant to know We would have known it years ago Time will make fools of masons' hands Time will turn stone to sand
Up Anchor 05:35
So up anchor now, set sail at dawn I'll turn to the South it's time I was moving on One more survivor with a tale to tell Of when I left you stranded, I left you for dead So sorry, how foolish of me I'll navigate words to lay hands on your skin So easily broken, so easy pulled in So draw me a map to wherever you are And I'll navigate to where you cross your heart This time it's different I swear on the Gods I swear it's forever against all the odds I'll draw all my strength not to tear you apart But all that I've ever known is how to break hears So sorry, how unfair of me One more survivor, lost at sea So stay dry, stay warm Stay far from the waters that I sail on 'Cause the words of a siren will lead you astray You follow the anchors to a watery grave
