Last Look on the Rise

Stickers on the wall,

Strumming their guitars,

Watermarked and torn,

Faces of the past,

Hey child on the rise,

You dream with open eyes,

Now,

Shutters in the wind,

Rattle with the call,

Across the early dawn,

Light shifts across the floor,

Chances,

Your not a child anymore,

Your not a child anymore,

You’re travelling on and away,

Into the golden sun,

Reflections in your eyes,

T-shirts old and worn,

Faded bathed in light,

And now you’re feeling,

You’re riding now on the wind,

The wander now begins,

The ones you have,

Could not love you more,

They’re just happy that,

It’s time to travel on,

Time to set your course,

Time to cut the cord,

Was it for a time,

Was it for an age,

You played your part then woke to find,

The path lay out in front of you,

And something in your mind was lifting like a veil,

The road that led away,

Was now an open door,

Calling out,

To guide you on your way,

To the other side of dawn,

To a brighter side of day,

Last look on the rise,

Waiting now to find,

What’s beyond your dreams,

What’s beyond the light

Last look on the rise,

Waiting now to find,

What’s beyond your dreams,

What’s beyond the light,

Catch you riding on,

Catch you riding on,
