The Sound Of Drinking

Album: There Is So Much Here (2022)

  • So, this is what it’s like now
    Without the constant leaving
    To sit and sense the seasons
    To be here merely being

    The sound of drinking water
    The turning of the leaves
    The movement of the moon
    The spaces in between

    The long year
    The slow days
    There is so much here
    I had never seen

    Your head upon my shoulder
    And slipping into sleep
    To drift within my thoughts
    And listen to you breathe

    Coffee in the bedroom
    The swaying of the pine
    The freedom from the weighing
    And the measuring of time

    The long year
    The slow days
    There is so much here
    I have never seen

    The long year
    The slow days
    There is so much here
    I have never seen
    There is so much here
    I have never seen Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
