your high walls were never a match for me
in spite of these fragile hands
I'm just too restless to let them be
oh but one of these days the feeling might pass
I'll be dreamin' away with my head in the grass
oh and one of these days you'll be somewhere out of reach
praising the stars for their light
you know my heart, it does turn with the seasons
and I will keep it caged for all kinds of reasons
but there is something in the winds of august
that sends those walls come crumbling down upon us
and at night I have visions of you wading
into water as that pale daylight is fading
and in the morning I'll rise slowly with the dew
wash my face from these visions of you
cause your high walls
were never a match for me


from high walls (EP), released January 22, 2014
