Walkabouts

Walkabouts - Forever Gone

rate me

Streaks of light

On the graveyard walk

Your bright star was crashin'

Crashin' the dark

Dreamed of a cold night

To freeze it in place

Dreamed of ship bells and thunder

Ringin' us under

Dreamed all the way home

That you'd never go

Talked up and down it

Mornin'noon and night

Alone in the optimists chair

Said our instincts were right

But now I know the clean choice

Was the worst choice of all

I'd rather feel guilt

Than this desert inside

I'd rather steal wicked

Than lay down in pride

Gone forever

Forever gone

Made a mess of this town

But that's what we always do

Throwin' glass to the floor

Now it's cuttin' right through

More than a year's time

'til ya give up the scheme

My wood matches meltin'

The ghosts from your wedding ring

Never trusted fate

But I wish that I had

Fate is what answered

Your slow cry for help

Fate was your motive

Your fate was yourself

Gone forever

Forever gone

Made a mess of this town

But that's what we always do

Throwin' glass to the floor

Now it's cuttin' right through

Gone forever

Forever gone

I'd rather feel guilt

Than this desert inside

I'd rather steal wicked

Than lay down in pride

Seems like a long time... oooh!
