Lyrics

(September)

The sun shines high above
The sounds of laughter
The birds swoop down upon
The crosses of old grey churches
We say that we’re in love
While secretly wishing for rain
Sipping coke and playing games

September’s here again
September’s here again

(Under Ingrids Wheels)

Sunlight on glass
Caught me blind
And the wages of love
Blew in at my side

I held its wings
And swallowed it whole
Now it shines in my shadow
White lines my road

I take the vow
And I swallow the pill
I laid my life on the line
Under Ingrid’s wheels

The road is long
And I know just how it feels
I laid my life on the line
Under Ingrid’s wheels

The heat is cold
And mind is hot
The body is aching
But reaching for the stars

The angels breathe
In snow and ice
And they nail in my grip
Some semblance of life

I’ve burned the rope
And I’ve hammered the steel
I laid my life on the line
Under Ingrid’s wheels

The road is long
And I know just how it feels
I laid my life on the line
Under Ingrid’s wheels

I burned her name
In God’s valleys and fields
I laid my life on the line
Under Ingrid’s wheels
