lyrics

There was anything but silence
A world away from violence
A track to dark for lights

Beyond the gates of Eden
Lay the flourishing essence of freedom

And all you envisioned was light
No tears to circle your sight
No sins too compromise
No longer running
Far away outside
No longer running
Far away from the clowns you left behind
And you sensed this was the time, through the shiver in
Your spine too which yesterday would end
And you would melt within the air, derived from feelings of despair
all too hard to hide from the truth

Where fortified forgiveness is fountained in good will
And neither place nor time could break the line you drew
No need to run now, now, no need to hide now now,
No need to break the line you drew
No need to turn now now, not much to learn now now
When only love can break the line you drew

There was anything but silence
A world away from alliance
An image so dark so real

Shadowed by this hypnotising feel
And no conceited fire
Could burn your desire
You broke into the night
The light, no fear,
No longer running
Far away outside
No longer running
Far away from the fools who possessed your mind
And the only presence they imposed, while they grind the weary hoes
Was the prudent status they crave
And now that's buried in the past, for what it's worth make it last
Yet it's all too hard to hide, from the truth

When fortified forgiveness is fountained in good will
And neither place nor time could break the line you drew
No need to run now, now, no need to hide now now,
No need to break the line you drew
No need to turn now now, not much to learn now now
When only love can break the line you drew

The line you drew
The line you drew

Met by flowers and bliss
Yet you fell without that kiss

The line you drew, yeah
All too hard to hide, from the truth
Where fortified forgiveness is fountained in good will
And neither place nor time could break the line you drew
No need to run now, now, no need to hide now now,
No need to break the line you drew
No need to turn now now, not much to learn now now
When only love can break the line you drew

about

The High & Lonesome Sydney, Australia
