lyrics

Snow where now there’s summer
Hunger now I’m full
A Charcoal masterpiece in the sand
The crow that flew away
Melodies fading fast
Memories just flying past
Some of these will never last
What’s then left to say?

In the morning light
In the morning light
I roll to my right
And open my eyes
And I see you there
Yes I see you there
Well some of these were built to last
What’s then left to say?

Canvas now there’s colour
Quiet in a chord
An empty hall in a crowded room
The day you said you’d stay
Melodies fading fast
Memories just flying past
Some of these will come at last
What’s then left to say?
