lyrics

oh, you’re so grand
did you feel me move through the land

how I want to be old like you
know I got the power to see things through

& how does it feel from where you stand
reaching out as far as you can

& how I wanna be bold as you
& as old as the earth when the seas were new

.

heaven’s gonna draw the sun up
it’s heaven holds you where you stand
so won’t you ask her straight and plainly
if she’ll ever meet my demands

.

cause how I wanna be back with you
at the start of time, at the start of movement

I feel your heart deep within
don’t know how many eons it’s been

so full and haunting
this understanding

deeper than the mother sea
it flows beneath thee

.

heaven’s gonna draw the moon up
it’s heaven holds you where you stand
so won’t you stare at her directly
ask her if she’ll ever meet my demands

.

cause how I wanna be back like you
at the start of time, at the start of movement

don’t know how many eons it’s been
only one breath for me and then

~

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 eyes
and 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

.

& If all the stars did take me down
to the other world, to common ground
I would be found
whispering to you

& 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
when the future’s past & the present is mine
now there ain’t no other kind, I know how to be in

& 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

.

& if all the truth did come my way
through the other side & make me stay
I would hustle a way & 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
they’re 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

& I don’t know who you think you are
or where you were coming from
to push me back so eagerly

& then to turn & run

.

So I wanna hope you’re happy
in some meaning of the word
but I’m slipping towards madness
in a fragmented world

& I don’t know who you think you are
or where you were coming from
to always leave me floating

until I came undone, undone, undone

.

not saying this is your probelm
or that I got a right
to be singing songs about ya
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

.

Have you been thinking of renaming me
Of taking to a different sea
Set your sail, pack your things
Let go of, what this path may bring

And in the morning, when the sun shines bright
And in the evening, ‘fore you sleep at night
Are you still reeling and holding on tight

Have you been starting to sketch something else
With colours long been left upon the shelf
A dusty rose, an aqua green
An emerald blue, for the limitless unseen

And when I’m dreaming, weren’t you telling me
That you were listening, when I was asleep
To my calling, to where I find my feet

Are you intending on going into hiding
On saddling up the fastest horse and riding over the plains
And the fields, til the wounds
In your heart heal

No longer drifting, when you see those mountain peaks
Rising, up from beneath the sea
You’ll be believing, that your name is free

It’s like my first love
I don’t know what’s what
I feel like I’ve fallen
down in a rut

And I ain’t gonna move from here
And I ain’t gonna cry
Just in case my love
happens on by

I got a ruby ring
from some other young guy
It shone like the brightest thing
like my heart’s deep desire

But I ain’t gonna dream of that
and I ain’t gonna fly
Just in case my love
happens on by

.

I got a, friend up town, she
says, come down. We got a
show to play, you’ll be great

’cause I heard you been
holed up for days. And I
know you’re probably ok But you

never know, who’s gonna,
be around.They might
even just know your name

And I know you got something to play
I know you got something to say

.

But, it’s like my first love
I don’t know myself
I feel like I’m floating
above everything else

And I ain’t gonna come on down
No I ain’t gonna try
Just in case my love
happens on by

I got the sweetest ole
little letter from afar
written in Amsterdam
beneath different stars

but I ain’t gonna write ‘im back
no, I ain’t gonna lie

Just in case my love
happens on by

Just in case my love
happens on by

~

I had a thought about you
& it came true.
Oh, baby, you gotta be
careful what you think these days.

I had a dream about love,
Of where it came from.
Oh, maybe, you gotta be
careful what you dream these days.

.

‘Cause it’s like sunlight falling
from afar
on an open heart.

Caught me out of time
in an empty bar
trying not to show my cards.

It’s like floating up
from within
to a place I never been

& it seems it might
change time
. . .baby

.

I was awestruck
by your beauty
Oh, baby, you gotta be
careful what you see these days

& I was stricken
by how you moved me
Oh, maybe you gotta be
careful what you catch these days

.

For it’s like moonlight falling
from afar
on an open hand

Showing all the colour
I tried so hard
to misunderstand

Won’t you meet me here
in this half-way house
I been waiting in

for it seems it might
change my mind
. . . baby

.

So I was re-made
into freedom
Oh, baby, you gotta be
careful what you make these days

& I was loved more by the
whole Earthly kingdom
Oh, maybe, you gotta be
careful how you love these days

.

It’s like the astral planes
are landing
in an earthly life

& all you got to cling to are
the rhythms of the
day & night

Won’t you meet me where
the door’s open
& we begin again

for it seems it might
change time
. . . baby

In the land of milk & honey,
I stole everything I had.
I took the wins of fights longs past,
took the wins of fights that last.

Yet I felt innocent as one can be,
whilst I played at your feet.
I watched your sky, I climbed your trees.
Isn’t everybody just like me.

& When the gods lie down it’ll be,
Up to us, to speak.

.

Your soul cannot be bought by money,
Your soul cannot be had by man.
Hope cannot be broke by someone
No matter if they think they can.

& They’re not innocent, but you’re still free.
Whilst I see you and you see me.
What is innocent, what is free,
If we forgive and let them be.

And the gods are counting everything,
What we gonna say when we see them.

.

In the land of milk & honey,
I did not know what I had.
Breathing in and out like nothing,
As if my life was something made.

Yet I felt like I could always dream,
Some things into reality.
Was this the gods, or was this me?
Look in the pool, what do you see?

& The gods are counting everything.
What we gonna say when we see them?

.

The gods are counting everything,
What we gonna say when we see them?

& the gods are counting everything
What we gonna say when you see them?

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

can 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
phoenix 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
phoenix in full flight

soaring across the sky
in a fiery
shining light

.

hey
you been listening to me?
is there something to see?
in your darkness, my sweetheart

hey
you heard the word on the, street
being carried by the, breeze?
it’s a mark of my love

& this
you remember it all
how to fight, how to, fall
in the opening scene

but now
you gotta come, around
reclaim your crown
reclaim me

now you gotta come around
now you gotta, come, around

.

step up to who you are
and take me down
bypass the fools and guards
& hold your ground

.

you been here before
you got the training down
your flights have no flaws
you never hit the ground

the space is never-ending
reaches further than the sea
leaves no meaning, to
you nor me

.

so, step up to who you, are
and take me down
bypass the fools and guards
reclaim your crown
reclaim your crown
