lyrics

In the End ©Laforge/Randall


The early morning comes to ask
If I have finally made up my mind
I used to take her sweet hand in mine
But lately, I don’t know what’s happened to me

These nights are too long
I’m a lion who has turned into stone

No more wars to be won

Time erases what you just can’t keep
So lay me down, I just want to sleep
These wheels I have are sunk in deep
Just turn around, let me be


I am one of the strangers here
Who can no longer speak
The words that loved me once, have taken their leave
Is this some punishment I half believe

These nights are too long
I’m the king who surrenders his throne

No more wars to be won

Time erases what you just can’t keep
Lay me down I just want to sleep
These wheels I have are sunk in deep
Just turn around, let me be

Movement has given up, broken by the tremor at rest
My heart still beats, my eyes still weep, so please don’t bury me yet
What ever happened to larger than life?
Hand me a shield so I can finish this quest

These nights are too long
I’m the road that has come to an end

No more wars to be won

Time erases what you just can’t keep
Lay me down I just want to sleep
These wheels I have are sunk in deep
Just turn around, let me be

Imagine Natalie Merchant wandering into Villa Nellcote when the Stones were recording Exile on Main Street and here you will find that same sort of seductive allure of punchy guitar and wounded lyrics. The EP was recorded at Studio Black Box with Peter Deimel ... more
