Lyrics

In the hazy stillness smell the nightshade bloom A lonely streetlight for a makeshift moon I can feel the morning trying to cut through Out on the river steam starts to rise From the depths and a darkness as cold as your eyes The wind wants to scream but can only muster a sigh I stood in your shadows too long Thinking that I had been doing wrong So I carried the torch, but you didn’t see Now it’s ashes and embers at my feet Down on the corner lovers’ names in concrete Get some relief from the trampling of feet A crack cross the heart is like a message to me The curse of the evening will soon be gone The sun is now breaking through the ruins of dawn The river so restless – she just keeps movin’ on I stood in your shadows too long Thinking that I had been doing wrong So I carried the torch, but you didn’t see Now it’s ashes and embers at my feet The leaves don’t start falling ‘til winter draws near But behind your eyes I see it’s already here I stood in your shadows too long Thinking that I had been doing wrong So I carried the torch, but you didn’t see Now it’s ashes and embers at my feet At my feet... at my feet... at my feet written by Dave Sills published by Dave Sills (ASCAP) (c) (p) 2001, all rights reserved From the album Sometimes Nothing (WSR 002)
