photographs were never taken all the words and all the painted sounds do you believe them now did you fall behind far out of sight

every waking single day within these walls i’ll never take your name in vain i recall them all do you loalve them all i love them whole

someday you will burn the tree with me in still
leaves would turn to ash and the limbs begin to crash
someday i’ll fall down

take a drink out of the cup that fills itself out of your tired soul and it’s full again up against the wind, up against the wind

hoping for the secret word that feels only what you would feel within No you can’t pretend what you find within when you seek within

father told me this sunset would come
that sore, slow setting sun
before i turn my head i won’t pretend to know my sins
i’ll float away just as fast as i can

float away just as fast as you can
float away just as fast as you can
soon you’ll hit the sun and you’ll sing a little song
maybe you’ll finally belong
