Four Winds
A RELECTIVE MOMENT BEHIND THIS HARDENED FACE
THIS TREE SHELTERS ME FROM THE DRIVING RAIN
EVERYTHING I'VE SEARCHED FOR, EVERY QUESTION LEFT UNANSWERED
LIES SCATTERED ROUND ITS BASE

OVER THE NOISE I TRY TO REMEMBER BUT IT'S HARD TO HEAR
THIS PLACE IS BUSIER NOW, THE WORLD'S MOVED ON SIXTEEN YEARS
BUT IF I LISTEN HARD ABOVE THIS SOUNDTRACK TO OUR LIVES
A BRASS BAND PLAYS THE LAST DANCE

I'M STILL SEARCHING THROUGH IT ALL
I STILL HEAR YOUR CALL
I KNOW THERE'S NOTHING LEFT HERE FOR ME
JUST A SENSE OF MY OWN MORTALITY

IN THIS GARDEN NOW, FAMILIAR SENSES
I RECOGNISE FROM DAYS GONE BY
BUT THIS FEELING OF CHANGE, LIKE THE LAST DAYS OF SUMMER
I CARRY WITH ME NOW

I'M STILL SEARCHING THROUGH IT ALL
I STILL HEAR YOUR CALL
I KNOW THERE'S NOTHING LEFT HERE NOW FOR ME
JUST THIS REMINDER OF MY OWN MORTALITY

THERE'S SO MUCH EMOTION AT TIMES LIKE THESE
HOW ARE WE SUPPOSED TO SEE?
WHEN ALL THAT'S LEFT IS JUST A FADING MEMORY
AND ASHES SCATTERED TO THE MERCY OF THE FOUR WINDS.....
