lyrics

7 YEARS.
7 years on the road a future story never told waiting for the hours to take toll soon you’ll see the moon out of you’re window. So many ways to describe but I cant find the words to provide just how it feels to be beside the ghost of you in your heyday. So bring along the elder ones and all the ones who said they found a reason I wanna meet them. A single ray of light upon the mountains they are the youngest things I found here and stay in my memory they do much like you do.
And they rise up above like they’re straining for love and they look to the sky with no tears in their eyes as if they may know I think they might know me.
7 years till she comes and sometimes all I think that we have is rooms or roomless days counting the cars that go the other way. See the smoke form the factory they will be here long after to me more power to them I suppose later on I smell them in my clothing.
And they rise up above like they’re straining for love and they look to the sky with no tears in their eyes as if they may know I think they might know me.

7 years in the hands of where it all began on the bed of where a river ran now it tells a different story.
