about

Originally from Songs From Lake Irene (2007)

lyrics

You walked the line for much too long
Undying love has come and gone
Her golden hair and killer eyes
That made you weep under the sky
You lost a friend of many years
All is lost when you're living in fear

You had time and you had space
But couldn't run one simple race
Through hills and trees and kettle ponds
You marked the path with willow wands
Nobody's gonna keep you down
You just have to pick yourself up

So don't try looking in her mind
It's all downhill until you're fine
and you know that love will make you blind for sometime

Close your eyes but you don't sleep
You see the climb but it's too steep
Your body's broke and broken down
You put your head against the ground
It hurts to know that you were wrong
but you can sing a brighter song now

For all the times you took her name and all the times you played the game
Cast the line and reeled it in and caught the unforgiven sin
But nobody's gonna keep you down
You just have to pick yourself up

So don't try looking in her mind
It's all downhill until you're fine
and you know that love will make you blind for sometime
