lyrics

At some point you found me,
I was staring blankly out to sea, waiting for a boat to appear, you took my hand and stalled my stare.
I stood strong like a tree of pine, swaying in the breeze and thinking you were mine.
That is when I held up my heart I felt strong and brave… like the sun.

There is a thing that grows from inside,
A like or a love or a dance with pride.
Painting your way through a forest of birds,
Then stumbling down hill with a mouthful of cruel words.
Speak softly my dear, don’t raise your voice.
Believe in your story, its your own choice.
Stand still for now, don’t run and hide.
It’s just a like or a love or a dance with pride.
It’s just a like or a love or a dance with pride.

I worked myself so hard, never giving my eyes the time to see the shards of broken crystal that hung from my lashes. Thousands of old tears left in the ashes of days old and wise, filled with the burden of many old ties. Need to throw them out, leave them for the dogs at the bottom of the hill in a winter fog.

There is a thing that grows from inside,
A like or a love or a dance with pride.
Painting your way through a forest of birds,
Then stumbling down hill with a mouthful of cruel words.
Speak softly my dear, don’t raise your voice,
Believe in your story, its your own choice.
Stand still for now, don’t run and hide.
It’s just a like or a love or a dance with pride.
It’s just a like or a love or a dance with pride.
