Music – This Was the Sound

While earth’s slow ride was growing
A bright new expanse
Blindly lost holding
my head in my hands
I watch the sun,
I watch the shadows grow
longer as the speed of my descent improves..
and moves me around

This was the sound
This was the sound of sorrow
And if you’re wondering why
I fell so far down
Just look around
Just look around

And you’ll hear lasting reflections
of all of these signs
Like lonely far soldiers beg
hope for their eyes
And walk away
They walk away
I’m here, calling you home
In the sullen night dusted by the scattered light

Now lifting, moving through a stolen gaze
Like the swelling sound
My movements calculated in sharpened ways
Nothing left to chance
One small mistake
Swept away
He says…
“Where did I go wrong?”
On fallen knees, no hope, is how I was found

And this was the sound
This was the sound of sorrow
And if you’re wondering how
I fell so far down
Just look around
Just look around
It’s all in the sound

Calling you home
All we know
It’s larger than life
Like the earth’s slow ride
It’s all we know

With nowhere to go
As life rises and falls
And no one knows why
All my strength, I held my ground
and then it all crashed down

And this was the sound
This was the sound of sorrow
And if you’re wondering how
I fell so far down
Just look around
This was the sound
This was the sound of sorrow…
