I’m waiting to form a line
To be honest in what I say
I stopped to moving on
I built a frame to fit around your head
A season of silence passed
Days of dust upon your photograph
If all I have are faded memories
How can I write your story?

I remember the melody of a song
But the words always escape my head
Reduced to the plot of a book I read
I recall your face, but forget the feeling
I lost everything of yours, but a ring
I have nothing to give back to you
All I have is what I made
All I have is a song, that I can sing

An old dream I had last night
A blue and red rocket outside my door
A knock and a brief exchange
He asked me will I stay another year
I tell him I need a home
A great big farmhouse where we both can roam
A beatific laugh, then he replies
"You should do what you want"

I remember the melody of the song
But the words always escape my head
Reduced to the plot of a book I read
I recall your face, but forget the feeling
I lost everything of yours, but a ring
I have nothing to give back to you
All I have is what I made
All I have is a song, that I can sing

Kathy says that time tried to change her
Oh, she maintains for those still waking up
Still coming home

    General CommentI really like this.

    "A season of silence passed
    Days of dust upon your photograph
    If all I have are faded memories
    How can I write your story?"

    It's so pretty.

    I can't wait for their next album!

    General Commentthis song has a lot of versions to it (i know i have at least three different recordings), the one posted being from the WFMU recording, but these are the lyrics to the one on the 7":



    been waiting to form a line
    to be honest in what i say
    i stopped moving on
    i built a frame of glass around your face
    a season of silence passed
    days of dust upon your photograph
    if all i have are faded memories
    how can i write your story

    i remember the melody of a song
    but the words always escape my head
    stripped to the plot of a book i read
    i recall your face, but forget the feeling
    i lost everything of yours but a ring
    i have nothing to give back to you
    all i have is what i make
    all i have is a song that i can sing

    the clouds gather past your house
    it's dust got full of way to the front door (???)
    a knock and a brief exchange
    you asked me will i stay another year
    a blue and red rocket
    a great big farmhouse where we all can roam
    a beatific laugh, and then you sigh
    "you should do what you want"

    i remember the melody of the song
    but the words always escape my head
    stripped to the plot of a book i read
    i recall your face, but forget the feeling
    i lost everything of yours but a ring
    i have nothing to give back to you
    all i have is what i make
    all i have is a song that i can sing

    and you'll say that time tried to change you
    oh, but you maintain for me still waking up
    still coming home
