about

This is a song I wrote about moving past my first big feeling of helplessness, that was brought on by a breakup. It uses the general theme of getting down to the water to face the sunrise, and the brightness of the future.

lyrics

Turn the key
Start the flame
Fog, heat, motion
In the concrete ocean

Is there a fog outside the glass?
Or fog inside my mind?
I'll watch the clock, I'll watch the sky
but still I won't know why

Now this highway is twisting
like a barber's pole
where you bled me out
but I didn't have a doubt
that everything you did, everything you said
had it's rhyme and reason

I wish I'd stopped but once
to shine the silver platter
I used to show my excuses for you

I wonder if I'd see
my face in the reflection
or the mask that had become my skin?

But now I see clearly
Clear as glass
The only thing keeping the wind
from blowing you out of my head
I took the key out of my back
you won't wind me up again
I won't sing for you anymore
I won't make excuses for you anymore

I put on the same clothes
that I wore yesterday
Because tears dry, and lies die
but the sun it always rises in the morning
