lifeblood: songs: unknown


retiring in to maine
watching the leaves bloom with change
while we just stayed the same

reading glasses and morning tea
you're up with the sun while we sleep
off last nights chance to be

left to our own devices
the temptation of unchecked fighting
we kept the home fires burning brightly

while you were gone
we fell apart
we took the bait
at every turn

we missed your counsel
and did a pretty bad job
of holding on to ourselves
of knowing when to stop

you know it not really your fault
just leaving it up to god
had to come eventually

and all of the trouble you see
must not make good company
i can see how you needed to be

retiring in to maine
watching the leaves bloom with change
while we just stay the same
