Am G F#/G
If you had heard half a song,
Turned and went to run,
A road that stretches on and on,
Before your days are done.

If you had listened for a while,
Felt the beat and call,
Fought for miles, sat down to sigh,
Where the dew will fall.

–C–
And even as you drifted far away,
I was writing this to make you stay.
Even as you packed up and you left,
I was telling you just how I felt…

If you had memorized the tune,
Recall it as you walk,
Footsteps softly in the gloom,
When it’s too late to talk

And if we had beaten out that rhyme,
Simple as a match,
A melody burning yours and mine
Easy as a cold to catch.

–C–
And even as you drifted far away,
I was writing this to make you stay.
Even as you packed up and you left,
I was getting to just how I felt…

And if there was nothing in the song,
A restless ragged verse,
To help you lift yourself along,
In love you can immerse.

But maybe there is something in the lines,
A little heart and soul,
Can you feel those fleeting vibes
Fill the deepest hole?

Even as you drifted far away,
I was writing this to make you stay,
Even as you pack up and are gone,
Will you sing along?
With this broken song,
A sorry open song.
A simple hopeful song.

Chapters of a story lost and found
Twisted plotless play
Make up meaning as a craft,
But it’s throw-away

Time moves slowly in the wind,
Hours spent swapping tales,
Rain is soaking everything we find
In the stormy gales.
