lyrics

Leave the Wine in the Bottle

Day moon on the naked trees,
Keep on driving till the buildings shrink.
Running on empty, running on steam.
Running for the running for weeks.

Turn off the radio.
Leave the Wine in the bottle.
Let the quiet in through the window.

Step into the woods,
Footsteps memory.
The dying light sleeps between the pine and beech,
Stars find their fire, up above my head.
As they shine on your distant sorrow too.

I live each of my days in defiance of them,
In honour, in honour of you.

Far from the sirens, I catch my breath.
I feel the seasons more this year.
Follow the rabbit track to the creek,
Winter water, dark cold and clear.

Turn off the radio.
Leave the Wine in the bottle.
Let the quiet in through the window.
Stare at the wallpaper.
Concentrate on the pattern.
Breathe slow now, breathe slow now,
Breathe slow.

Day moon on the naked trees,
Keep on driving till the buildings shrink.
