The Long Road



Young As The Morning Old As The Sea (2016)

The Long Road testo

You’ve walked a long road and you’ve worn it well
You stitched yourself up when you fell
Keep your memories in jars
Carry secrets and scars beneath your shell
You’ve seen some good days and some bad ones too
You weave through fashion and trend
You’ve seen the sun rise on an ocean blue
You’ve seen it set for the dearest of friends

You found faith but you chose to doubt it
You found love but you left without it
Now you don’t want to talk about it

You travelled down through foreign lands
Touched mountain tops and golden sands
Seen pyramids and temples made of stone
Keep seashells in a cashmere scarf
A treasured book of photographs
In every single one you stand alone
You’ve seen Vienna and the Berlin wall
As you watch the decades fall
The letters that you wrote never made it home
Your birthdays flew past like June
With Christmas days in hotel rooms
And New Year’s eve with people you don’t know

You built friendships but they sailed without you
You never meant it and that’s why they doubt you
And they don’t ever talk about you

You’re older than you used to be
The marrow weaves and tapestry
Of lines that dance and shimmer ‘round your eyes
You stare back at a man, forever holding out his hand
As if the answer is gonna fall out of the sky
But the penny never dropped
And no man has ever stopped time from flying by
