A rough demo of a new song.
From over here I see you there
Sitting back in the big armchair
And what I’m feeling can’t be said
It stays inside my head
Words will not get me very far
They won’t take me to where you are
They fall like raindrops and flow away
A rough demo of a song that I have just written.
I won’t be unkind
I will always speak my mind
I will not run, I will not hide
I won’t leave you behind
I will not be blind
What’s been lost I will find
You will see the best of me
When our minds are combined

You should be here in these times
To tell us what you’re thinking:
To show how your sweetness has developed
And your sharpness has increased.
This unholy blur started with shivers:
Our lives’ coldest spell.
You were gone for no reason;
Time passed slowly while snow fell.
Ireland froze, except for rivers of tears.
A new song that I’ve written.
I lie awake and I’m pondering
Where the money goes
I think of times I was following
The Emperor’s new clothes
My latest song …
I remember you told me
You were born on a ship at sea
All the oceans we’ve explored
Since the day I climbed on board
