A Trace of Sky [song lyric]

Posted on Updated on

This is yet another song about what happens when love and good feelings become suppressed and even twisted…



Searching for a reason
Trying to find the answer why
Brave hearts to believe in
Need to feel
something real

So long in the desert
Dried up in the breeze
Barbed wire all around him
he’s not sad
nor cries

[His mum put some
strange things in his head
His dad was mad
but now he is dead (cobwebs)]

Shipwrecked in a bottle
Broken sails on the sea
Big waves gonna drown him
Doesn’t care
or despair
at all

Puffed up in his courtyard
Shades shut out the sun
Blinds down in his windows
Blinkers on —
has no song
to sigh

[When young, got stung
Won’t do it again
Now old, controlled
Think 12 Angry Men (mayhem)]

Listened to the circus
Thought it came from outside
Heard clowns in the shadows
Find a place
to die

Earthmound is his future
Earthbound from the start
Palaces were places not to be
Didn’t know
where to go
for love

[Girl quest obsessed
Old wounds intertwined
He knew so few
Connections that rhymed (love-blind)]

Fly high in the morning
Shooting stars just for fun
She’ll come in the evening
Touch your face
leave a trace
of sky
