about

Without Your Hand was originally composed for the 50/90 songwriting challenge in 2011. I then rerecorded it over the winter to serve as the first track for this EP and the first of my '52 things' that I will be producing over the year.

lyrics

I'll find my fallen star without your help
I'll trek through unknown lands without your help

I'll find those distant sands
without your hand to guide me

I'm under twisting skies without your help
weeds picked from empty paths with no-one

I'll dig through distant sands
without your hand to guide me home
let me drift off with the waves let me go

Carvings that speak with age but no-one's here
voices from long ago but no-ones here

Under these distant sands
without your voice to soothe me

Echoes of anger past and deep red stains
Eaten by ageless wind and acid rains
I'll dig through distant sands
without your hand to guide me home

let me drift off with the waves let me go

I just want to sleep in these old graves
I Just want to feel to these old graves
