lyrics

I followed your tracks
Through the tangled bramble hedge
They led me to
A burrow at the forest edge

Across the golden fields
Misty mornings fall like dust
And some will break
Just another dumb mistake
Long sun lies down
Low across the fading fields
I lift my eyes
I am stuck at home but...

Once I went outside
Walked in broad daylight
Now I stay at home
Killing time alone

Let your cold wind blow
Through the tangled wild hedgerows
New lives arose
Taking over old green roads
Lurk in shadows
Skulking from field to hedgerow
In black furrows
We are lying low but...

Once I was alive
Bathed in warm sunlight
Now we're trapped inside
Livin photographs

Fan the flames awake
Build the fire and make it burn
What will it take
For my bones to break and turn
From dust to light?
Just another of those days
Fade into night
Through the dusky winter haze

Should I go out side?
Should I I just hide?
Should I try?
Should I be alive?

Only bright stars fade
Only the sun casts shade
Only full moons wane
Only babies cry
Only friends say goodbye

Even the best songs don't sing themselves
And all the rest left standing on the shelves
And burnished gold, won't shine when it gets dark
The largest fire, won't light without a spark

Hazel, my old friend
Although I cut you down again
You will live on
Hardened by the wind and frost
Rise from the mud
Through brambling bracken birch and bud
New shoots arise
This has happened more than once..

Once I went outside
Walked in broad daylight
Now I stay at home
Killing time alone

Weigh me down, way down
In the black abyss I drown
Drag me back home
In the seething froth and foam
We never learn
Anchors hold me fast and firm
Help me forget
All the things I didn’t do
Become regrets
Can I let it go for once...

Once I was alive
Bathed in warm sunlight
Now we're trapped inside
Livin photographs

What will next year bring?
We don't need these things
Would you look for me
In a memory?

Secret silent snare
Somewhere something Somehow stares
Lying in her lair
Waiting for the wolves to were
Are you aware
Wolf you will wear
Me down wolf beware
What will you wear wolf?

You can not hold back
The bramble and elder trees
They hide our tracks
Tangled as they held the breeze
We stay inside
Twisting through the tangled time
Where fears reside
All our lives will intertwine

Should I go out side?
Should I I just hide?
Should I try?
Should I be alive?

Only bright stars fade
Only the lost can be found
Only triers fail
Only fires burn
Only fighters fall
Only lions die
Only dead dogs lie
If I close my eyes
I won't have to choose
Only lovers lose
