The Mast

Found a place where I can be
All the things I want you to see
Take my head into your hands
'Cause I come to you from another land

And I don't need to know your favourite aunt's name
And I don't need to know what woman's felt the same
And I don't need to see you every single day
But I'd like to

Break my heart back into place
'Cause I've come to understand you more lately
And I've found a man inside your chest
Some will tear him up and I'll lay him some rest
Rest

And I don't need to know the details of your past
And I don't need to know when you thought of me last
And I don't have to say if I'm the sail and you're the mast
And we've caught a good wind, the mast

Because you know me more than any before
'Cause you found the clues between me and you
You know me more than any before
'Cause you found the clues between me and you

    General Commenti looove how the guitar builds up. and everything else about this song too..
    and rose it is called Monarch, but it went out of print a while ago. so the only copies you can get are used or off the internet. maybe they'll do a re-release some day.
