Song

In Time

I hear you
You see me
Your heart beats
Clearly
Your hand shakes
And holds mine

The light through
The window
Is resting
On you now
The world moves
You close your eyes

Your heart beats
Your heart beats
In time
Your heart beats
With mine

It’s dark out
I whisper
For all that
You wish for
Your every
And always

The sound of
Your breathing
Your murmurs
Your dreaming
And I’m here
The whole time

Your heart beats
Your heart beats clearly
Your heart beats
Your heart beats in time
Your heart beats with mine

I Was Just A Boy When I Left Town

I was just a boy when I left home
Laced up my walking shoes
Then I headed off to roam
Found a town down ’bout a mile or two
But that wind blew west and I just followed through

I was just a boy when I left town
Headed to the river
Then I followed it down
Now I’ve seen oceans blue and I’ve picked a fight or two
But I thought I’d seen it all ’till I saw you.

I met a man who claimed to swallow stars
Another claimed his Pappy was an alien from Mars
Now I’ve been to the top and back again
But I thought I’d seen it all ’till you walked in

‘Till you walked in
With that dress just hanging on
And you picked out a song
For me to play
And how I tried,
But all other sights escaped my eyes
Completely taken by surprise
What should I do?

And then I knew…
That I’d thought I’d seen it all ‘till I saw you

You sat down and enquired my address
I said: “Nothing concrete yet, just walking from the west”
You asked if I found my place how would I know?
I said: “Keep sitting there and I will never go”

But then you leant your head in close to mine
And whispered several words that seemed to echo through time
You said:
I’m just a girl traveling east to west
And when I’ve seen it all is when I’ll rest”

And she walked out
With that dress just hanging on
No sooner come then she was gone
Never to return
And how I tried
To forget it there and then
But it keeps running round my head
And starts to burn

And now I know its all the same….

…I’ll see it all ‘till I see her again

Neptune’s Spear

Neptune’s Spear

That day he stepped up to the ocean
The wind did howl from side to side
2 minutes before noon
Winter would be coming soon
That jagged sun just rolled across the sky

He thought of everyone
He’s known in this place
He walks into the sun
The shadow hides his face

And that’s his saving grace

Recites a solemn prayer to history
Silence serves as the reply
The footprints that he made
Would soon return from whence they came
That jagged sun still limped across the sky

Weary leg moved to the water
The furrowed brow betrayed the eye
The salt crept through his bones
His skin baptized by ancient stones
And all the while that jagged sun floats by

One last breath was drawn
One last chance to turn around

One last look before
His feet no longer touched the ground

And all the while that jagged sun floats by…
