Further [song lyrics]

Posted on Updated on

further

Cleaning out the air
dirt was everywhere
now the deed was done
I can see the sun
Bathing in its light
no more need to fight
finally some rest
was it all a test

Through one eighty days
(I was) living in a haze
couldn’t see the ground
never heard the sound
of my pumping heart
going stop and start
if it didn’t end
I would never mend

I went further than ever before
Didn’t even have a map
Found within me some space unexplored
Couldn’t find my own way back

Something has to change
need to rearrange
every broken fence
so it all makes sense
Every now and then
must remake again
taking off the gloves
leaving only love

[If you’d only be my dream
You would never have to scheme]

So where are you now
Growing up somehow?
have you learned to see
not just you but me
When your chains have gone
and you sing our song
I will know that we
can truly be

I went further than ever before
Didn’t even have a map
Found within me some space unexplored
Couldn’t find my own way back

random drawn by their creator’s
palette-painted teaching
