lyrics

Turning The Day

This rizla’s ash, this pay-cheque spent
Vacant guesthouse, cold park bench
Cast a thousand stones to sting this sun
A thousand stones ripple down upon her
Wading uneven
From the shelter of sand dunes
Losing these shallows
Chasing the light
Chasing the light
Chasing the light

In empty lots along the quay
Cruising for company
Salesmen return from sea
Their widows are not waiting
Now they’re dodging the seaweed
Tangling round here
In a playground of shadows
Chasing the light
Chasing the light
Chasing the light

This rizla’s ash and pay cheque spent
Dishwater coffee and unmade bed
Cast a thousand stones to sting this sun
A thousand stones ripple down upon her
Wading uneven
Shelter of sand dunes
But I’m losing these shallows
Chasing the light
Chasing the light
Chasing the light

Turning the day
I am not afraid
Gonna cast that rock into the sea
Repercussions reckoning
Turning the day
If only space and time would bend
Just to see your face again
Myth’s eroding, somersaulting
Grinder and that monkey falling
Rizla’s ash and pay cheque spent
Just to see your face again
If only space and time could bend
I would count these waves again
If only space and time could bend
I would count these waves
