lyrics

Through the air
Half-remembered
Burning softly
As the rain
From that sky
All the hopes
That you gave
Like a light
Climbing through the tide
Carried on the breath
Of that mountainside
We are fields
Empty to be filled
We are fields

All the trials and the triumphs
To let go or hold on to
Chances came then were gone
Never taken
But like a spree
Note by note, you ran through them
Like a spree
Tell yourself you outgrew them

Hurt is aching
Isolating
Try to face it
Brace against it
Vanished gestures
Hollow volleys
Bitter tributes
To your folly
Words you had to speak
Straws you had to grasp

Ways you thought you were
Ways you tried to be
Running deeper
Slipping steeper
In the marrow
Compass arrow
Blinded eyes again
Better medicine
Hopes and ashes
Intermingling
It was in you
Given into
Silent burning
Stony-turning

All the falls and the rises
Disappointments, surprises
The endeavours, travails of your lifetime
And now I see
Is it true - I have spent them?
Now I see
It is true - I have less left

Spun in golden thread
Fortune smiled again
From that sky
Ever beckoning
Turn now
Twist in the wind
Never pinned
