Here on Island Time Lyrics

 

1. The Traveler

© September 2006, Steve Harris

 

I found my things, divided through the years

With heartache, pain, and way too many tears

The hardest part of leaving’s, not looking back

The choice I made – with all the baggage I could pack

 

Alone at first, a victim of my pain

A family left, they still hold on my name

I tried to heal, met someone I could hold

I hadn’t changed enough - just another love gone cold

 

I am a Traveler, down this way that never ends

Thru twists and turns, not seeing ‘round the bend

Each step I take, leads further down this road

Just a Traveler - my heart is all I hold

 

“You can’t look back, eyes forward if you please”

I find myself, down on my bended knees…

 

I feel the wind, the changes in my life

I try so hard, can’t seem to get it right

The ‘Losing End’, a place I’ve lately known

I wait for Love – find it further down this road

 

Repeat Chorus

 

Each step I take, leads further down the road

I am a Traveler – my heart is all that I know…

 

2. Winds of Changes

© August 2006, Steve Harris, Mark Dodge

 

I can’t describe it

Don’t know what to say

I feel, more than understand it

Your love, has drifted away

 

Hard to throw this away

I can feel it everyday

How can you not feel it too?

As this love now fades to blue

 

I can you feel the winds of changes tonight

Hard to know if this is wrong or right…

Oooh…aahh

 

Lead Break

Repeat Chorus

 

Yea, I think I get it

We’re more unlike, than I pretend

You pulled away as I reached for you

I can’t give you all that I should do

 

Repeat Chorus

 

3. Undercovers

© February 2002, Steve Harris, Mark Dodge

 

An owl, I heard him callin’

In the early dark, before the coast was clear

He’s discovered something hidden

In the day I’ll meet, a caution to my ear

 

In the whisper of the morning

Is it even worth the try?

I could crawl back, under covers

Let the sleep back in my eyes

 

The wind is at my window

A lone dog, is barking out his call

He’s found something he can follow

But like me, it’s his shadow after all.

 

Repeat Chorus

 

The crows have left the treetops

I hear their call as they begin

Their blackened hearts to valley crops

Their voices - scattered on the wind

And the hawks in silent circles fly

Keeping watch on things below

Too much is lost and never found

Dreams that never show

 

Repeat Chorus 2X

 

4. Between the Middle and the End

© February 2001, David Vensas, Steve Harris, Mark Dodge

 

Mickey wasn’t always bad, she wasn’t always good

She was always there for him, he never understood

Her Mother was the same way, and Oklahoma child

Whiskey made her think too much, the silence drove her wild

 

Somewhere in between the middle and the end

We try and solve the riddle of why ghosts are like old friends

We sacrificed the innocence so we could pretend

Somewhere in between, the middle and the end

 

Mickey wore a chain of gold, some Saint now long since dead

She would take it off at night, why? She never said

Heaven wasn’t all they had, in the passion they had seen

A breaking heart that mends itself, healing in between

 

Repeat Chorus

 

Mickey had a silver smile that made the moon look warm

The silence in the words she spoke, a calm before the storm

His anger tried so hard to melt, her silver into gold

Out of touch, out of reach, neither hot or cold

 

Repeat Chorus 2X:

Repeat last line

 

5. Here on Island Time

© September 2006 – Steve Harris, David Vensas, Mark Dodge

 

The morning comes, the water is calm

An eagle flies, to meet the dawn

All the color, that’s defined

Never lost, easy to find

 

I like the changes I see

Take the time, and feel so free

No worries, just peace of mind

Relax, right here on Island Time

 

Some days, feel like it’s all pretend,

I make it up, hopin’ it won’t end.

There’s times, it frees my soul.

A lot of rock, and not much roll.

 

Repeat Chorus

 

I’m here, with my glass of wine

I’m gonna catch the sunset, take my time

All the color, that’s held in my glass

Half full tonight, I’ll make it last

 

Repeat Chorus

 

6. Passing

© August 2001, David Vensas, Steve Harris, Mark Dodge

 

Jack Daniels on her breath, her hair looked like her dress

Worn too long, stained with gray, no room for tenderness

Her face an invitation, once firm, showed lines of age

In the dark, you’d never see, the burning and the rage

 

A tattoo scratched across her back, an angel bathed in light

In the darkness no one sees, who she’s with tonight

Ooooh…

 

Her eyes a cloudy testament, a voice that smoked too much

Her fingers bore the rings of men, who learned to trust her touch

Arms that brought men pleasure, hands that brought them pain

Legs that serve one master, need never run again

 

Repeat Chorus

 

Jack Daniels on my breath, I looked beyond her dress

I wasn’t staying long enough, to need her tenderness

An evening’s consecration, at an altar of our age

In the dark, no one sees, our burning and our rage

 

Repeat Chorus

 

7. Time Will Tell

October 1982, Steve Harris, Mark Dodge

 

Sometimes you’re so confusing, you’re tearing me apart

Are my feelings what you’ve been misusing, are you breaking my heart?

Sometimes you’re cold, sometimes you’re bold &, sometimes you’re honey sweet

Your lovin’ always knocks me off of my feet.

 

Time will tell, my Darlin’, hope it fares us well

But only time will tell,

Girl, only time will tell...

 

Don’t know how to get through to you, no, don’t know what to say

The answers to these questions, seem so far away

How do you really feel about me, do you really ever let your heart see?

Do you ever get the feeling of being in love?

 

Repeat Refrain

 

You’re the one...you’re the girl,

You’re the woman I love (repeat)

 

I don’t have much to say to you, no, I’ve got to do what I need to do,

For the moment, you’re breakin’ my heart in two

Sometimes you’re cold, sometimes you’re bold, sometimes you’re honey sweet

Your lovin’ always knocks me off of my feet.

 

Repeat Refrain

Repeat Chorus - last line 3x

 

8. Barenaked Waltz

© 2001, David Vensas & Steve Harris

 

I’ll give you the shirt, right off of my back

My undies for you, wouldn’t ask for them back

My buckle and belt, and my cowboy hat too

All my love for the taking, all in full view

 

There go my boots, there go your shoes

Being in love, how can we loose

Off goes your blouse, off goes my pants

Can’t wait to get in, to this romance

 

Bare naked waltzin’, lighter then air - Bare naked waltzin’, let them all stare

Holding you close, and closer again - Bare naked waltzin’ with my favorite friend

Bare naked waltzin’ with you ‘till the end

 

2/4 or 4/4 I pay ‘em no mind

You can’t beat the rhythm of ¾ time

I’ll follow your lead, you don’t have to speak

A sight to remember us ‘cheek to cheek’

 

Repeat Chorus

 

I’d waltz across Texas stark naked for you

Even in winter, I’d turn all blue

Buck naked from Austin, I tell you no lie

Bare naked waltzin’, with you ‘till I die

 

Repeat Chorus

 

9. Window on my Day

© July 2001, Steve Harris

 

A quiet cup of coffee, a window on my day

The house feels almost empty, always starts this way

 

You can’t see me, as I wipe away these tears

You can’t find me, even though I’m near

An endless progression, circling in time

Interpreted direction, feelings entwined

 

You can’t hear me, as I’m calling out your name

You can’t touch me, when you’re filled with pain

 

Oooh oooh oooh…

You can’t know me, after all this time

You can’t show me, all that’s left to rhyme

 

A moment of reflection, the casting of doubts

Exaggerated speculation, perspective is lost

 

Don’t misunderstand me, I hope to set things right

I just want you to hold me, tell me we’ll be alright

 

Oooh oooh oooh…

A quiet cup of coffee, a window on my day

The house feels almost empty, always starts this way…

 

10. I’m Not Sleeping

© June 2003, Steve Harris, Mark Dodge

 

Stretching my wings

At the edge of a canyon, falling to the river far below

The river’s carved its pleasure

On rock’s ageless existence, showing color as the dawn starts to show

 

And I spread my wings

Surrender to the wind, to show the way for me

With far seeing eyes

Climbing higher until I see, all the choices left for me

…I’m not sleeping

 

Now above the river

As steep rock surrounds me, quiet giants that seem to point the way

I hear many voices, as I rise above the falls

Feeling more and more than I can see

 

Repeat Chorus

 

The rabbit on the run, yea, I could quickly take

It’s the easy road for some, but I will cast my fate

Following the wind, so high up in the clouds

 

At the top of a forest

A quiet watcher of the night, I rest, quietly yearning for the dawn

The trees know purpose, and hold me in their arms

Stretching up, to finally meet the light

 

Repeat Chorus

 

11. Won My Love

© 1981, 2005 – Mark Dodge

 

Won my love – you played so well

The stakes were high – you cast a spell

Won my love

Won my love

Won my love without a fight

Caught off guard without a fright

Won my love

Won my love

 

I wondered how the cards would fall

But I’m the one who won it all, when you

Won my love

 

t’s a loserless game – a victimless crime

I’ll wager it all every time

A loserless game – a victimless crime

I’ll wager it all

Won my love

 

Won my love in a winner’s game

Where living and dreams are all the same

Won my love

Won my love

 

It’s a loserless game – a victimless crime

I’ll wager it all every time

A loserless game – a victimless crime

I’ll wager it all…

 

12. Not There At All

© Steve Harris, Mark Dodge

 

It’s the quiet time of evening

Moon shines through the haze

I can’t hear any traffic

Across the water I gaze

 

My guitar, seems to play itself

As I’m thinking of your smile

Words exchanged don’t mean much

In the quiet of this hour

 

Do you know, what I feel for you?

Do you know, my heart?

Do you know, what hurts me so?

It’s when we are apart, and we’re not there at all

 

Am I a poet with these strings?

Do I just pull on these things?

Thoughts untangled, unsecured

As I’m looking for the words

 

It’s the quiet time of evening

Do you know, you’ve had my heart?

Don’t understand these feelings

Of us breaking apart…

 

Repeat Chorus

 

13. Keeping Me Awake

© March 2006, Steve Harris, Mark Dodge

 

You are keeping me awake, tonight

I can still see your eyes

They’re ‘Blues’ are shinin’ so bright

You are keeping me awake, tonight

 

Oh, just to see you smile

To hold you for awhile

You are keeping me awake, tonight

Wish you were here, to make things right

 

You are keeping me awake, tonight

I can still feel your voice

Hearts that could sing so right

You are keeping me awake, tonight

 

Oh, to whisper in your ear

To feel you so near

You are keeping me awake, tonight

Wish you were here, to make things right

 

Whoa-oh-oh, Whoa-oh-oh, Whoa-oh-oh, oh (Repeat)

 

You are keeping me awake, tonight

I can still feel your touch

A chocolate kiss, to set things right

You are keeping me awake, tonight

 

Oh, to kiss you for a smile

Listen to music for awhile

You are keeping me awake, tonight

Wish you were here, to make things right

 

Whoa-oh-oh, Whoa-oh-oh, Whoa-oh-oh, oh (Repeat)

 

Northwestern Sky Lyrics

 

1. I Still am Moved by You

© 1981, Steve Harris

"I  hear she’s married to a politician now ... This song is for the memories that we all have of past relationships and have since ‘moved’ on." With Tim on soprano sax, and Wende & Mark on backing vocals.

 

Lord knows the reason that I still hang on

Some say it’s the seasons, and I should move on

Trying to find what to do, will I ever get over you?

Saying over and over, it’s all a bad dream…

 

Chorus:

And I, still am moved by you

No matter what you say, no matter what you do

And I, still am moved by you

I wonder where you are, my lady blue

 

Some say I’m crazy, some say I play the fool

Hard to throw it away these memory of you

You had your reasons, and your ways said it all

And for a time, well, I took a bad fall

But, it’s alright, ‘cause I’m well on my way (sometimes I still say)

 

Chorus:

I, still am moved by you

No matter what you say, no matter what you do

And I, still am moved by you

I wonder where you are, my lady blue

 

Bridge:

Just for now, I’m waiting on my own lucky star

You know, there’s been times when it’s seemed so far

I’ve finally found a lady who will love me true

Guess I’m finally over, girl, loosing you…

 

Chorus: (Repeat twice to fade)

 

2. Holdin' My Own

© September 2002, Steve Harris

"My art & music are my island and refuge from the continual storms of the disability I now live with."

With Mark on tenor ukulele.

 

 Endless waves of the sea,

Always splashing on me,

With the moon or the sun overhead.

And there’s wind in the trees,

From a cool sudden breeze,

Speaks of changes, down to the edge.

With a mountain raised up high to guard me

From the threat of an on-coming storm

I’m an island, you see

With these walls around me

Feeling safe, and holding my own.

(Lead Break – Verse)

 

I can’t begin to pretend

As the waves wash the sand

On the beaches surrounding my shore

I’m so alone in my dreams

My only rescue it seems

Are from shells, I’ve found once before

With the moon at night to guide me

From the darkness of an on-coming storm

I’m an island, you see

With these walls around me

Feeling battered, but holding my own

(Lead Break – Verse)

 

With the sun shining down upon me

I’m preparing for that on-coming storm

I’m an island, you see

With these walls around me

Feeling broken, but holding my own

 

I’m an island, you see

With these walls around me

Feeling lonely, but holding my own

3. And the Road Takes us All

© August 2002, Steve Harris

"I contacted an old friend in preparation for some close friends’ 25th anniversary and ‘Your name was dropped in conversation’ … this song easily followed." With Mark on Lips.

 

Your name dropped in conversation

One I knew, I hadn’t heard for awhile

Attempted misdirection from an old friend

To let me know, you were still around

 

Chorus:

They must think I’m half crazy

For letting you go, those many years ago

And now, it all seems too damn hazy

Clouded reasons, neither you or I will know

 

You held me close, when I was wounded

From a Love, that left me empty, gone astray

We first met, in that crowded bar room

I barely looked at you, or remembered your name

 

Chorus:

Bridge:

What we shared, how we laughed

How we loved, now where we’re at

Steps together, steps alone, steps apart

You with yours, me with mine

Lives complete, hearts defined

And the road, takes us all, upon our way

 

Verse - Instrumental

 

Chorus: (Repeat)

Bridge: (Repeat)

What we shared, how we laughed

How we loved, now where we’re at

Steps together, steps alone, steps apart

You with yours, me with mine

Lives complete, hearts defined

And the road, takes us all, upon our way

…and the road, takes us all, upon our way

 

Your name dropped in conversation

To let me know, you were still around…

 

4. Here by My Side

© 1983, Steve Harris

"A point in time where lyric and music painted a clear picture ... Thanks for the Sax, Tim!"

 

She’s waiting for the summer sun

I’m waiting for the day to come

When, we both have the time we need

I’m working hard my life away

She’s waitin’ for the time of day

When she don’t have to be alone

 

Chorus:

I don’t need no songs to tell her

And I don’t need no words to rhyme

She’s the woman I’ve always wanted

Here by my side, yea, here by my side

 

Darkness gone and the morning comes

She’s lyin’ in the morning sun

It can’t help but take my breath away

Her simple ways and her woman’s charms

When I’m holding her in my arms

I know heaven’s just a wish away

 

Chorus

 

[lead break]

 

She’s waiting for the summer sun

I’m waiting for the day to come

When we both have the time we need

I’m working hard my life away

She’s waitin’ for the time of day

When she don’t have to be alone

...she don’t want to be alone

 

5. Something Tropical

© 1996, Steve Harris

"Up here, too much rain does get to where it hurts the brain. A song that speaks of umbrella drinks and the Mexican coastline." With Wende and Mark on backing vocals.

 

‘bout this time of year, I get to feeling that old fear,

Too much rain, it hurts my brain, time to get it all in gear.

Girl it’s time to pack our bags, we’ve got a place to go.

The sun shines bright, the days just right, a feeling we both know

We can’t look back for the moment is now

No turning back, we’ve got to get there somehow…

 

We will soon walk hand in hand, by the waters of the bay

I can see you smiling ‘neath those blue skies everyday

We won’t care about the time, our love will show us through,

Day turns to night, the feelings right, away from here with you.

We can’t look back for the moment is now

No turning back, we’ve got to get there somehow…

 

Chorus:

Away, so far away

Lets stay, stay another day

And raise our glasses and watch the sun go down

Take a moment and let the world go ‘round

Beyond our dreams we will fall

 

The wind is cool, the sand is hot, your skin is turning brown

We watch the colors of the sky, as the sun is going down

We find ourselves a quiet bar, and talk the night away

The silver moon is shining, music drifts across the bay

We can’t look back, for the moment is now

No turning back, we’ve got to get there somehow…

 

Chorus

 

We find our seat, the waitress comes, an angel to our aid

We ask for something tropical, my mind just whirls away

Girl it’s time to pack our bags, we got a place to go

Your eyes shine bright, the time is right, a feeling we both know…

 

Chorus (repeat)

 

6. Only4U

© October 2001, Steve Harris

"I'm usually myself for everyone I meet and interact with - I'm a very honest and real person. The woman I love sees an even deeper side, that at the time I wrote this song I didn't think she realized." With Tim on soprano sax.

 

Won’t you move a little closer, see the rain falling in my eyes

Just a slight reflection, looking through my disguise…

Not there for everyone, I only show it true

For you…yea, only for you

 

Things can get a little crazy, and its hard for me to show

The world can hold us captive, and we never even know

Not there for everyone, I only show it true

For you…yea, only for you

 

Bridge:

We seem to go in circles, unfolding in ourselves

With ever changing seasons, growing depths of love

That will never fade in color, that will never, come undone

 

Don’t have the answers, or see the writing on the wall

No premonitions, I don’t need them, at all

Not there for everyone, I only show it true

For you, yea, only for you

 

Bridge:

We seem to go in circles, unfolding in ourselves

With ever changing seasons, growing depths of love

That will never fade in color, that will never come undone…(repeat)

 

Won’t you move a little closer, see the sunlight in my eyes

Just a slight reflection, the heart of my disguise…

Not there for everyone, I only show it true

For you…yea, only for you (repeat & fade)

 

7. Lessons of the Heart

© August 2000, Steve Harris

"My own plea for a troubled relationship; we had to let go." With Wende and Mark on backing vocals.

 

He can’t tell her, why he lies awake at night

And tries to think of all the ways, to make it right

He can’t tell her of the darkness, that has hidden all the light

Through all the years that used to shine so bright

 

He can’t hear the laughter, when he’s feeling so much pain

It’s been so long since she’s called out his name

He can’t hear her heartbeat, he’s just trying to maintain

All he hears is the sound of that northbound train

 

Chorus:

Will they always stay together, or is it time to say goodbye?

Will their love still last forever, or has time just passed them by?

It’s a lesson of the heart, sometimes it gets so hard to try…

But it can happen if you let it, don’t you know

You just can’t let it go

 

He can’t show her, she seems so distant all the time

Have her feelings disappeared, with nothing left to find?

He can’t show her, that he’s lost, looking for a sign

To bring him back home, to give him peace of mind

 

Chorus

 

Lead Break

I can’t seem to tell you, what feels right or what feels wrong

We need to find the strength, to help ourselves along

I can’t seem to tell you, so I’ll sing it in a song

Our love means too much, we’ve been together for so long

 

Chorus:

Will we always stay together, or is it time to say goodbye?

Will our love still last forever, or has time just passed us by?

It’s a lesson of the heart, sometimes it gets so hard to try…

But it can happen if we let it, don’t you know

We just can’t let it go

 

8. I Like the View

© October 2002, David Vensas and Steve Harris

"I’m not giving up this chair, man!"

 

Sittin’ on a barstool

The clock says half past eight

Three doubles into somewhere else

And you’re an hour late

Sittin’ through my memories,

Like everyone who drinks

Getting by ‘til half past nine;

I’m at least half past I think

 

Chorus:

I have no answers or questions to ask of you

I’m here keepin’ time, because I like the view

I have no questions or answers that ring true

Just an hour later and I still like the view

 

Sittin’ at a table

Watchin’ a game of pool

Nothin’ like the games we play

Where we make up the rules

The clock shows that an hour’ up

And now it’s half past ten

Killin’ time and memories

With my latest half past friends

 

Chorus (Repeat)

 

Lead Break (Chorus)

 

Sittin’ on a barstool

The clock says half past ten

Half ways into somewhere else

And half ways out again

Sifting through my memories

Like the hands that mark the time

Getting’ through the memories

By at least, half past the time

 

Chorus: (Repeat)

 

9. No Old Days

© June 2002, David Vensas & Steve Harris

"A song of questioning with a touch of blues."

 

There’s no old days, to get back to soon

No old ways, that’ll change our tune

The look in your eye, the sound of your voice

Words that we said, leave us both no choice

I’m starin’ at my drink, left warm in my hand

Knowin’ that there’s nothing to understand

And, there’s no old days, to get back to soon

 

Chorus:

Like a movie that’s playin’ in the other room

We can’t quite hear, know it will it end soon

It flickers like a bulb, about to burn

We’ve seen it once before, don’t ever learn

…no old days, to get back to soon

 

There’s no tears, that hurt too much

No new fears, like when we’re out of touch

Can’t stop thinking how we’ve cried and raved

It feels like a shadow fallin’ on my grave

I’m starin’ at my drink, left warm in my hand

Knowin’ that there’s nothing to understand

And, there’s no tears, that hurt too much

 

Chorus

(Repeat)

And, there’s no tears, that hurt too much…

Lead Break

 

There’s no new love, that will make this Spring

No new whispers, to make us blush and sing

I can’t watch the sunset with this same old heart

Three quarter moon, as the stars just start

I’m starin’ at my drink, left warm in my hand

Knowin’ that there’s nothing to understand

And, there’s no new love, that will make this Spring

 

Chorus:

(Repeat)

And, there’s no old days, to get back to soon…

 

10. Northwestern Sky

© 1994, Steve Harris

"Although I met some great people and played some good music in Texas, I only lasted 3 years there before the Northwest called me home. This song is about what I encountered, alone on the road, during one day’s drive between San Antonio and Zapata and back."

 

I’m headin’ south now, I’m going down the line

On down to Zapata, where the road does touch the sky

Mesquite, Jaevalinas, Rattlesnakes, and the south Texas sun

The Heat’s so oppressive, even with the windows down

 

Chorus: And I’m on my way, so hard to stay, I miss that Northwestern Sky

 

Out on the Blacktop, I see some movement in the sun

I’m now down among them, my tires squash them one by one

It’s so goddamn forsaken, some are bigger than my hand

These damn Texas spiders, hell, I won’t ever understand

 

Chorus

 

Bridge:

Why I ever made it down here? The heat can make you fry.

The sun goes on forever, I can hear the mountains cry…

 

Thought I saw an eagle, the sun, now playing tricks with my eyes

Steel and burning engines, flashin’ wings as the Navy learns to fly

50 feet above me, in the middle of nothin’ I could tell

Just chasin’ down coyotes, then they’d blow ‘em straight to Hell.

 

Chorus

 

Up from Zapata, a few cold ones for the long run home

Drivin’ up a different highway, a guard stops me, I’m alone

Mesquite, Javelenas, Rattlesnakes, and that south Texas sun

“You can go about your business, boy, you ain’t hiding anyone”

 

Chorus:

 

11. Tom

© January 2004, David Vensas & Steve Harris – Lyrics, Steve Harris - Music

"Seemingly at the blink of an eye, almost anyone can become homeless through disability, mental illness, or financial disaster. This can happen to anyone; it is a very real possibility for all." With Mark on lips.

 

When he wasn’t asleep, Tom carried a sign

“Homeless for 10 Years”, he was just twenty nine.

Sometimes he’d pray, when his Will would almost break

Sing a song for the Homeless, yea, we’ll split the take

 

Tom lived in a doorway, when he didn’t beg

Had a grate give him heat, barely covered his legs

Tom would visit the Mission, maybe coffee some cake

Sing a song for the Homeless, yea, we’ll split the take

 

Chorus: It might be you standing, holding a sign

Keep hoping for good luck, and those good ol’ times

You whistle a tune, that song get you through

Don’t ever forget, that Tom could be you…

 

The summers were good, on a corner all day

Folks were giving and happy, a good word to say

But the rain wasn’t fun, the Wind made him shake

Sing a song for the Homeless, yea we’ll split the take

 

Had a few friends just die, the flu was Tom’s guess

And the one’s that were murdered, hopeful, God bless

The Cops come around, see what trouble they make

Sing a song for the Homeless, yea, we’ll split the take

 

Chorus: It might be you standing, holding a sign

Keep hoping for good luck, and those good ol’ times

 

(Instrumental – last half of chorus + first 2 lines of verse)

 

Tom is my name, and my story is true

I might be your neighbor, someday might be you

Living from a doorway, you don’t know the stakes

Sing a song for the Homeless, yea we’ll split the take.

 

12. Catchin' All My Time

© April 2002, Steve Harris

"For all the Eagles, Hawks, and Swallows … and the time I’m lucky enough to see them dance on the wind. My cup of coffee always goes cold." With Wende and Mark on backing vocals.

 

My cup of coffee, on the table

Soon, it starts to loose its pull

I sit staring, out the window

Can’t seem to get my fill.

 

The sun’s, up over the mountain

Its light, caught way up in the trees

It’s cold, and the wind has been blowin’

Singing softly, to me

 

Chorus:

I don’t know about you,

But I’m catching all my time

I’ll hold it all for you,

In this quiet heart of mine

 

There’s always peace, up in this valley

Different, for each hour passing by

I leave trouble, far behind me

As I look, into the sky

 

Swallows, chase around in circles

A dance, that changes as it goes

Call out laughter, to each other

As the catch, the wind they know

 

Chorus

 

My coffee, still sits upon the table

Cold, forgotten and half full

I’m still staring, out the window,

Can’t seem to get my fill

 

Chorus
