Lyrics

A Fire In The Forest

There is always sunshine
Above the grey sky
I will try to find it
Yes, I will try

My mind has been wandering
I hardly noticed
It’s running on its own steam
I let it go
Oh here comes my childhood
A penny for your secrets
It’s standing in the window
Not out here where it belongs

There’s a fire in the forest
It’s taking down some trees
When things are overwhelming
I let them be
I would like to see you
It’s lovely to see you
Come and take me somewhere
Come take me out

There is always sunshine
Far above the grey sky
I know that I will find it
Yes, I will try

Ghosts

When my chance came to be king
The ghosts of my life
Blew wilder than the wind
Than the wind

When the room is quiet
The daylight almost gone
It seems there’s something I should know
Well, I ought to leave
But the rain it never stops
And I’ve no particular place to go

Just when I think I’m winning
When I’ve broken every door
The ghosts of my life
Blow wilder than before
Just when I thought I could not be stopped
When my chance came to be king
The ghosts of my life
Blew wilder than the wind

Well, I’m feeling nervous
Now I find myself alone
The simple life’s no longer there
Once I was so sure
Now the doubt inside my mind
Comes and goes, but leads nowhere
