Song A Week 15 - Leaves

Download

Leaves leave the tree
They hit the ground eventually
Time is not on our side
I always feel one step behind

This was not the way it was meant to be

She told us all it was benign
But we could see her slow decline
None of us have much time

Leaves crushed under my feet
Nothing stays like it ought to be
Rain falls free
It comes in on an autumn breeze

This was not the way it was meant to be

She told us all it was benign
But we could see her slow decline
None of us have much time
She stayed so brave until the end
We could never comprehend
Just how much we’d miss her

Song A Week 16 - See You On The Other Side

Download

We don’t have much time, I can hear them coming
To take us away to the edge of this land
West over the ocean, over the horizon
Back to where it all began

I can sit with you on the way to the ocean
We’ll talk on the way and I’ll hold your hand
But I can’t take the boat you’re taking over
Back to where it all began

When all the ships have sailed
I’ll be standing at the tide
Waving goodbye my love
I’ll see you on the other side

We only had a short time together
That’s all part of the design
Pretty soon I’ll be following you
Over to the other side
