Laggan Rhye - Years Ago


(as long as)

Thirty years ago

Remembering early days

Walking the woods,

Sliding the hill-side

Warm, cold, wet and greasy

Thinking everything is easy

Watching the sun come up,

Watch it setting at night


(as we were)

Learning to walk

Learning to talk

Learning to speak,

Learning to sleigh-ride

Looking around

Looking ahead

Watching the moon shine bright

Watch it twisting again (and again…)



Flying in the light

Flying in the dark

Flying in circles

Around, around your heart


Swimming in the lake

Swimming in the pond

Swimming in circles

Around around around around…





As we were

young and full of hope

“come drink your tea at home”

young and full of joy

“you’re a nuisance and annoy”

young and pure of heart

“put on your jacket and look smart”

growing up to be a king

just to realize you can be anything


Meaning to walk

Meaning to talk

Meaning to speak,

Meaning to stay right

Walking around

Walking ahead

Telling the moon shone bright

And I am twisting again (and again…)



Running in the field

Running in the woods

Running in circles

Around, around your heart


Sleeping in the light

Sleeping in the dark

Sleeping in circles

Around around around around…



--- around around around around…

around around around around…


Flying in the light

Flying in the dark

Flying in circles

Around, around your heart

Swimming in the lake

Swimming in the pond

Swimming in circles

Around around around around…

Around around around around…



Stumbling in the street

Stumbling in the house

Stumbling in circles

Around, around your heart


Falling in the hole

Falling in the well

Falling in circles

Around, around.
