You Never Left

Updated on November 11, 2010

Song Lyrics - Music Version to be found on Myspace

You Never Left

Corridors and brick walls

They could never rock me

Only you

Bitumen, epoxy

They could never hold me

Only you

But we

We float away

Over trees

And the Alaskan wilderness


We feel the soil

Soft underfoot

Rubber wheels can’t move me

Bars of steel won’t break me

Only you

And although they’ve got me

They will never have me

Only you

But we

We sail away

In lagoons of the Indian River systems

And we wade into salty waves

Of the Atlantic Ocean

I will capture sunsets

Darkness will not blind me

Only you

And your arms will warm me

Like you never left me.

      hi agaglia i think that little spotted red will make a great song. maybe a frenchy-sultry sort of folk song will be very cute. all the best!

      Hey Surfeitt,'

      I like your music. Do you think any of my poetry would work as a song/ How do you go from poetry to music? I feel that some stuff I write has a strong rhythm - perhaps others don't hear that same rhythm. what do you think?

      love the reference to glues followed by the BUT WE FLOATED AWAY - nice contrary and opposing idea - irony is underrated and many poets tend to sound a bit... anyway
