Coat on and searching down the shelf
Ninety years in his pocket
Says it's just as well
Cause it's all in this book for you
And his chin turns red from this sunny look that says
The slipping tide weighs on your mind
Standing upon the coast
When half of your mind stays with those you love most
Sleep as a golden ghost

Nightfall

Showed all of the photos that he kept
From Melrose Abbey
To the Highland's end
Clearing up a blank page
Said the book won't ever be done
If you don't write about your sons right here

It's just the slipping tide weighs on your mind
Standing upon the coast
When half of your mind stays with those you love most
Sleep as a golden ghost

The screen door eyesore repair
And he gave it all to me
And tile floor eyesore repair
And he passed it on to me

It's just the slipping tide weighs on your mind
Standing upon the coast
When half of your mind stays with those you love most
Sleep as a golden ghost

Slipping tide weighs on your mind
Standing upon the coast
When half of your mind stays with those you love most
Sleep as a golden ghost
