lifeblood: songs: lyrics: blame is a killer


well there was something you gave
i'm sitting with as the seasons change
it lays unclaimed sometimes
blame is a killer

i see the river that was
and say what have i done
to see the forest for the trees
truth is a villain

(ah)
did it steal you away from me
or did it give me humanity
(ah)
did it show me an autumn moon
when i needed my eyes of youth

well there's a big big love
i need to be part of
i watch the leaves die while i wait
time is unyielding

i see the days turn grey
but for all our praying
we can't end this drought with rain
the gods are unwilling

(ah)
did they steal love away from me
or did they give me humanity
(ah)
did they show me an autumn moon
when i needed my eyes of youth

i wanna be part of

(ah)
yeah you gotta roll brand new
and you gotta sing in tune
(ah)
yeah you got hands to hold
so many blooms to unfold
yeah
