lyrics

When I was seventeen I tried to save the world
But how do you save the world?
In its melting, fiery roar

I found that I’d stopped playing my guitar
Was too busy for all that
The waiting world could wait no more

A vastness came to view, I was tiny I was few
With my bigger picture actually quite small
If I could talk to me then now
I’d say relax and take some time
Don’t give up too much to give your all.

Halfway through and now I know I’ll never
Fall upon that moment I imagined where
I’d Settled and resolved
All anxieties be solved
Halfway through I know I may never know

When I was twenty and my mind began to spin
A messianic din
Constellations of all stars
Theologies to haul through twisted darkness
And the beauty that befalls
On the starry ship to mars

I thought that they were prophets
Who would take me round the world
with my bigger picture actually quite small

If I could talk to me then now
I’d say relax and take some time
Don’t give up too much to give your all.

Halfway through and now I know I’ll never
Fall upon that moment I imagined where
I’d Settled and resolved
All anxieties be solved
Halfway through I know I may never know

In my thirties when I toured so many towns
Ilfracomb to Parry Sound
Truth more humble than the dream
I had times that were so glamorous and fun
But I lost a lot of friends
Broke my body for the team

Now I’m at the stage where a disillusion stays
Loves leaders leave this life before their time
I am talking to myself
Sunlight and love are greatest wealth
Slow down and be simplicity sublime

Halfway through and now I know I’ll never
Fall upon that moment I imagined where
I’d Settled and resolved
All anxieties be solved
Halfway through I know I may never know
