Lyrics

Like a forgotten child

I’ve been waiting here for a while

but there ain’t no other turnstile

I’d rather be on

 

Caught you as you were skipping by

with a golden light in your eye

it was quite a surprise

to see that

 

But would you have caught me in a different wind

when it’s blowing strong from within

when it puts my heart and mind into a spin

would you have found me

 

And the birds were singing

Of something other than here

Of a place where I was given

To something other than here

 

And if all the stars did take me down

to the other world to common ground

I would be found

whispering to you

 

And for all of the mistakes I’ve made

not one of them would I trade

for they brought me down this way

to you

 

It’s like living in a different time

where the future’s past and the present is mine

Now there ain’t no other kind

I know how to be in

 

And the bluest blue is only

just a touch of the  mermaid sea

I’m gonna fly in the night air

to see that

 

And the birds were singing

Of something other than here

Of a place where I was given

To something other than here

 

And if all the truth did come my way

through the other side and make me stay

I would hustle a way and pay

my path back to you

 

For when all good things are dreamt and done

I might have tried to hide but only run

blindly down that new found road

to you

 

And the birds were singing

Of something other than here

Of a place where I was given

To something other than here

I see you got more strength than me

or are you sinking down

Is it a little more easy

camping out in a different town

And all the pieces of me

are coming apart now

I got nothing to take or leave

I’m left on hollow ground

 

So I try and get a little sleep

without you on my mind

Weren’t we playing for keeps

were we riding different lines

And I don’t know who you think you are

or where you were coming from

To push me back so eagerly

and then to turn and run

 

So I want to hope you’re happy

in some meaning of the word

but I’m slipping towards madness

in a fragmented world

And I don’t know who you think you are

or where you were coming from

To always leave me floating

until I came undone

Not saying this is your problem

or that I got a right

To be singing songs about you

to be crying in the night

Just wanna know who you think you are

or where you were coming from

To let me so far in

and still show me no-one

I forgot your touch, I forgot how much

I believe in, such love

Talking to myself, do I or don’t I need help

from somebody else

 

Falling or flying, Is living like dying

Are you lying ’bout me

Drowning or waving, am I worth saving

Could you pledge my freedom?

Can you see my Queendom?

 

Little boy, came knocking at the door

said don’t forget, there’s so much more

 

And the heroes, they’ve been out on the boardwalk tonight

Writing songs, touching stars, making things feel right

They tell you the story of the pheonix in full flight

Soaring across the sky, in a fiery shining light

 

I forgot your touch, I forgot how much

I believe in, such love

You stand so tall, beneath it all

Your call still rings free

 

Laughing or crying, are we selling or buying

Are you trying your tricks

When ‘cross the lagoon, a dusty rose moon

shone its light on me

shone its light over the sea

 

Little girl, came knocking at the door

said don’t forget, there’s so much more

 

And the heroes, they’ve been out on the boardwalk tonight

Writing songs, touching stars, making things feel right

They tell you the story of the pheonix in full flight

Soaring across the sky, in a fiery shining light
