Down
Down the coast
Down we walked
Collecting stories forgotten by our tongues

You were older
And I was not
You were ready
To tie the knots
To hold together
The fabric we've woven
Don't you worry
It won't be stolen
Tell the story

And I
I walked away from you
To South Africa
'Cause I know people there
Who make things with their hands

You'll be stronger
Recording songs
They can't remember
The words so long
That you can't forget them
No matter how long you try my dear
They'll just keep on ringing in your ear

Down
Down the coast
Down we walked
Collecting stories forgotten by our tongues

You were older
And I was not
You were ready
