lyrics

Reflections on the water of leaves swaying out in the breeze
Broken by rain as its falling so calmly and sweetly
I've captained my own paper boat as it sailed through the night
And drowned in the liquor as years just go rolling on by

I've had addictions and habits but swore I had none
I cant wait forever to find who I’ve tried to become
I've lived in places that say that they won’t ever sleep
And got lost in the race and somehow forgot how to dream

So keep running, keep on running
But if you don’t listen you won’t hear the sound
So keep running, keep on running
But there ain’t no shame in settling down

Sometimes I talk to myself and nobody can hear
Take it in stride as the passing parade takes the field
Take what you get and just keep on moving along
Do as I say just do all the things that I've done

So keep running, keep on running
But if you don’t listen you won’t hear the sound
So keep running, keep on running
But there ain’t no shame in settling down

Take what you get and just keep on moving along
Do as I say just do all the things that I've done
Do as I say just do all the things that I've done
Do as I say just do all the things that I've done

I live on top of a mountain in Victoria, Australia. I play guitar, banjo and sing... On rough days I like Tequila shots with a beer chaser.
