Ribbon Road lyrics

Gathering Dust

Things canít stay the same, however much you would like them too and as they change, you do too. As you accept the changes you let the dust lie as it settles on the things of the past.

Gathering Dust

Dust on the window sill
Dust on the plain
Wind blowing weary
It all looks the same
Big empty space
Where the sky hits the ground
I have been changed
By the world going round

I just couldn't hold it
I couldn't hold on
Pieces are missing
And my time is gone

Dusty old memories
Dust in my eyes
Grit in my teeth
Where the cold words have died

Dust on the road now
There's dust on the side
I won't be walking
Out dreaming tonight
Stars go on shining
The moon will be queen
But I have been changed
By the world I have seen

I just couldn't hold it
I couldn't hold on
Pieces are missing
And my time is gone

Dust on the mantle
Where my finger trails
Stones in my stomach
Where my courage failed

All life is lying
In dust and decay
Why keep on trying
To hide it away
I should be calling
As free as a bird
But I keep on falling
I can't hear the words

And I just couldn't hold it
I couldn't hold on
Pieces are missing
And my time is gone

Dust on the stair
With the carpet worn through
Can't get my breath
As the hammer hits true

I just couldn't hold it
I couldn't hold on
Pieces are missing
And my time is gone

Dust in the sunlight
There's dust in my hair
I have been changed
By the world and it's care
