Lonely Spires

When you go away
And say you'll return some other day
But until then I must
Stay and sing and learn the taste of remembering
When you go away
And say we'll return some other way
But until then I must
Stay and sing and meet you at the shores
We used to fill with
Silver stones and bones and tomes of no remorse
And build our castles
With their lonely spires high

I could learn to melt into the sand
I could learn to grow into the ocean
I could learn to fade into the air
And then I'd hover and stare
At children playing where our kingdom used to be
And then hover and stare at
Children playing where our kingdom used to be

When you go away
And say you'll return some other way
But until then I must
Stay and sing and meet you at the shores
We used to fill with
Silver stones and bones and tomes of no remorse
And build our castles with their lonely
I will meet you at the shores
We used to fill with
Silver stones and bones and tomes of no remorse
And build our castles
With their lonely spires high
With our lonely spires high
