Wouldn't know any more than home
And couldn't see much further
And light won't help
A wound untended grows
And never heals
Standing face to east
Waiting for an answer

But the only sound is desert wind
And when the wind was cold
Bundled up and packed away we shiver still
Finding more than one wind blows

I couldn't sleep
Something kept me still and wide awake
And gnawing at my breast
Something I don't know
I couldn't shake it
Laying face to wall
Plaster tells me nothing

But I sense a movement somewhere else
And 'though it's far away
Bundled up in safety here I shiver still
Finding more than one wind blows

He walked alone
Facing wind and snow
Moving slowly
He staggers moves again
Somehow stronger now
The wind won't touch him

But the only sound is desert wind
And when the wind was cold
Bundled up and packed away we shiver still
Finding more than one wind blows

    General CommentLines from this song have personal meaning to me as it took me a while to find Bread & Circus. I was 18 when I got it which is about the same age as Glen when he wrote it.

    Wouldn't know any more than home And couldn't see much further > I still lived at home

    Bundled up and packed away we shiver still > I had poor heating in my house at the time

    Laying face to wall Plaster tells me nothing > The room I lived in was not painted & my bed was in the corner

    But I sense a movement somewhere else And 'though it's far away Bundled up in safety here I shiver still > I had just met my future wife who lived far away. I felt happy and safe because of the love but I shivered still because we were apart
