Without a song I left the city
Borrowed a car with no radio
Gone before the sun had a chance to shine
The free wind weighed on my mind

How many roads begin under dark umbrella
They can see the memory of love

Comes a tune, clearing way like a siren
Shifting soon every thought in my head
'Til they all get tangled up in blue

This melody promises me someday words will come
And when they do, I'll shape them into a song

    General CommentVetiver is amazing, that is all. To me it's about, not having love, therefore there is no song to sing, but then he remembers a "memory of love" so then comes along a tune as well, the melody promises that someday words will come, the story isn't over, love will possibly rekindle and he will have a song from his heart.

    General CommentI love the Bob Dylan reference in this song: "tangled up in blue".
