Limping Dove

 

Dry eyes, christmas morning
flying or just free fallin'

forgotten what I know

Eyes to close to vision miracles unfold

 

If you never fall, you never break,

you never learn, you never wait,

you never grow, you're never living

You never hurt, you never lost,

you never cried, you never loved,

you never lied, you've never given

You never sung, you never screamed,

laughed, smiled or dreamed,

thought or fought too caught on dying

time will come,

with the limping dove

and you will never fall again

 

Blue night, new years calling

Driving forth or just a crawling

resolutions on hold

tried to knot the ropes

fingers too cold

If you never fall, you never break,

you never learn, you never wait,

you never grow, you're never living

You never hurt, you never lost,

you never cried, you never loved,

you never lied, you've never given

You never sung, you never screamed,

laughed, smiled or dreamed,

thought or fought too caught on dying

time will come,

with the limping dove

and you will never fall again

 

Lowdown, winter's eve

maybe I could have been

more persistent, or wrong

skies will be the boundaries

we'll aim beyond

 

If you never fall, you never break,

you never learn, you never wait,

you never grow, you're never living

You never hurt, you never lost,

you never cried, you never loved,

you never lied, you've never given

You never sung, you never screamed,

laughed, smiled or dreamed,

thought or fought too caught on dying

time will come,

with the limping dove

and you will never fall again
