Last Look on the Rise

sunset-hill-mylor

Last look on the Rise
Last Look on the Rise

Stickers on the wall
Strumming their guitars
Water marked 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
You’re not a child anymore
You’re 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 your
feeling
That you’re riding now on the wind
The wanderer 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
Do do do…

Was it for a time
Was it for an age
You played your part
Then woke to find
The path led 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
Catch you riding on
Catch you riding on

Say Goodbye

In a corner block
Exposed to the street
Our bedroom windows lit
Like a lamp in a tree

Our baby slept
Each night for seven years
From cot to single bed
With a smile on his lips

And for that and our friends on the street
For our trestle table banquets with it’s table clothes and tea

We say goodbye to the house
We lived in for seven years
For seven years we lived
Under a golden rainbow

With our fires at night
With our bikes and beers
And all the good times we had
For all of those years

With it’s old tyre swing
And it’s low brick wall
And the treehouse our neighbours built
Out the front for us all

We share our lives in our home by the sea
We watched our boys growing up
As they climbed up the peppermint tree

We say goodbye to the house
We lived in for seven years
For seven years we lived
Under a golden rainbow

In a corner block
Exposed to the street
Our baby slept inside
Like a star on a tree

Rocking Chair

I can take it for a while
Invitations
Another reason to smile
But sometimes I need a passage out
Just a chance to get some air
Where I can work things out
Sitting in my rocking chair
My rocking chair

School reunion I let pass me by
I bought the ticket and I’d booked the flight
I really wanted to be there
See some people from that time
But as it is I let it go
I just sat there rocking slow
In my rocking chair

My
My rocking chair

I’m sinking into my wishing well
I’m floating on my fortune pool
I’m waiting for my mind to ride

I’m waiting

come take me

I’m shifting into another time
Cause I remember things well
When I’m in my own world
In my rocking chair

My
My rocking chair
