It’s an empty road home won’t you meet me at the station Juliet
With that smile that you told me was all mine
I’ve been away the world’s as crooked as it’s round Juliet
I need that smile that you told me was all mine

Don’t try to part the clouds anymore
Only the blind stare at the sun
We were raised in the darkness and if our prayers are heard
Then they’re heard when the days work is done

Spring will blow me home used my bootlaces for something I forget
I never thought those bootlaces were mine
It’s a devil of a job to know the currency in which you hold the debt
I never really thought those debts were mine

I’m coming back for my wings coz I haven’t used them yet
Sky said she hadn’t found the time
Those stars look like home I’ve been as far away as any soul could get
And I never met no-one who had the time

Nothing but holes in my pockets and I’ll be off the train before the sun has set
The wind has proved me wrong in every town
And looking like the furniture and songs sung in the slow key of regret
But I’ve kept all the rain that I have found


from Left with the Skies, released May 1, 2017
