In The Heather

I used to walk in the heather

counting the crows on the line

counting back days when I first met her

and wishing that she were still mine

 

keep on walking and don’t look back

to where the city’s in flames

believe there’s water just over the hill

and flowers that bloom from her name

 

roll me over and rock me to sleep

I pray my mind my memories keep

if I should lie about any heartbeat

 

you sing at the speed of sound

you see at the speed of light

you can step as slow as you’re bound to

you still pass through the night

 

roll me over…

 

I used to walk in the heather

combing out my long hair

hoping one day I’d forgive her

now I’m just glad she’s there
