Ribbon Road lyrics


Never New Til Now

Rainbows shimmer over fields of ice
who could want for more
misty awnings so very nice
where I go you've gone before
I never knew there was beauty in a storm
or wonder in the truth
I never saw anyone so cut to the core
and still give as the sword went through

Rosebud eager to force and bloom
headstrong, bloody and red
dancers spin me around the room
I just can't lie still and play dead
I never found silver in the early morning dew
or gold in a waxy comb
I never broke the wave until tempted to the shore
and sweet charity, well she left home

Break me, take me, love me for evermore
hate me, but it's late for me
each nerve-end is rubbing me raw

Racing rain on the window pane
my horse won't stay on the track
bracing bodies that won't stay the same
I pray that this won't break my back
A starfish slow-motion on an unhappy tide
plenty of salt but no tears have been cried
brown pitted seaweed left on the sand
severed forever in fantasy land

Calm me, be kind to me
come stand by my side
don't harm me when you're blind to me
don't make me stay behind

I never knew there was beauty in a storm
or wonder in the truth
never saw anyone so cut to the core
and still give as the sword went through
