Infamous "Track 5," a heartbreaking but beautiful song about love lost

lyrics

A Fool’s Lament

There she goes, my fading star
A ghost wrapped in his arms. What can I do?
She'll come back some time tonight,
Promise her heart to mine, Say her love is true.

I wish I was a sparrow.
Fly across the field.
And release me from everything.

But I hope (You're that bird) and I pray (Fly away)
That her heart (You're alone) finds a way (She won't change)
To keep dreaming with me.

I need to fight my jealous heart when we drift apart.
We'll be together someday.

I need to tame my jealous mind and keep my dream alive
We'll be happy some day.

There she goes, his rising star
My ghost wrapped in his arms. I'm such a fool.
She'll come back some time tonight,
I know her heart's not mine. And her love's untrue.

I wish I was a sparrow.
Fly across the field.
And just release me from everything.

Still I hope (You're that bird) and I pray (Fly away)
That her heart (You're alone) finds a way (She won't change)
To keep dreaming with me.

I need to fight my jealous heart when we drift apart
We'll be together someday.

I need to tame my jealous mind And keep my dream alive
And we'll be happy some day.

A multi-instrumentalist with an obsessive DIY "indie" sprit, his songs are a dynamic mix of stories that wander from love lost and workplace oppression, to innocent observations on the weather - all forged with deep supernatural and psychological curiosity. Female vocals regularly sweeten his impassioned and agitated growl. ... more
