lyrics

The longing never goes
The longing's not your friend
It's still in your heart and your skin
It stays with you till the very end

The hands must always turn
But don't turn your face away
Don't hide yourself in flight or earth
Be here now, no truthless hurt

This is a marching song calling forth, calling on
This is a city hymn, pull the future out of the bargain bin
This is the next lifetime sundering and mending signs
This is a litany to rouse us from our frailty

Each mind a castle with a thousand rooms, and riches in each one
No-one begins with all they need; imperfect chances, wayward feet
And when we leave we want to say - 'There's nothing else I could have done...
I had to leave the rest unsaid. The deck was full but the cards unread.'


This is a marching song calling forth, calling on
This is a city hymn, pull the future out of the bargain bin
This is the next lifetime sundering and mending signs
This is a litany to rouse us from our frailty
