Lyrics


When the wheels are spinning too fast
Sit and watch them roll
Forget what we were saying
Turn and watch the dawn
The ground cannot hold us
What is made is meant to rust
The scriptures in the closet
The words have turned to dust

It took you long enough to find
The road just twists back
I’ve been holding you like the holiest
But that cannot be had
Streep lamp shooting stars
Walking fast but moving slow
On those mornings we don’t want to wake up When the night won’t let you go
I don’t think it ends I don’t think it ends

When the critics leave their comments
When your card game’s a cliché
Dive deep into in the water
Open arms up to the waves
The sun asks you to dance
Burning up what isn’t bright
Spin until you fall apart
Even wrong turns come out right

It took me long enough to find
I’m running in one place
Another bitter broken record
Etching lines into my face
Streetlamp shooting stars
When the moon is hanging low
On those mornings you don’t wanna make up When the night won’t let you go
I don’t think it ends I don’t think it ends

Crawl into the hallow
Where the light is what you bring
Scatter, shake, and separate
The weapon from the sting
Listen far as you can hear
The can upon the string
Everything can sing
And I don’t think it ends
I don’t think it ends

(Ron Scott, Daisy O’Connor)
