lyrics

In that champagne summer
We were both so young
The streets were crackling
Like an old time song
I felt right
I felt right
But I sure was wrong
About a lot of things

My faith was steady
And my faith was strong
Now it’s long gone honey
And I need you home
If you’re here
By my side
I don’t feel alone
So please come back to me

By the dirt
By the bleach
By your soft voice humming
In the great dark deep
I know all of this is fleeting
But stay here
I am making a new thing

They dammed the river
From my saviour’s hands
Dimmed the lights
Down on the last soul band
I was gold
I was gold
I was golden then
But now I’m ready to leave

The moon was fading
Like the leaving lord
As I staggered drunken
Back into your arms
I’ve been knocked
To the ground
But I’m getting up
When you lie next to me

I am free
I am free
As a sunset shadow
As a falling leaf
And I will sing
Even if I’m the same old sorry man
I’ve always been

For the dirt
For the bleach
For your soft voice humming
In the great dark deep
I know all of this is fleeting
But stay here
I’m making a new thing

These old chords are rising up in me
Let them all go
