Harm's Swift Way

Album: Band of Joy (2010)
  • There is a home out of harms swift way
    I set myself to find
    I swore to my love I would
    Bring her there
    Then I left my love behind
    The desert was long
    The mountains high
    The road ran steep and winding
    The promises so easily made
    Unbearable, yet binding

    Oh me, oh my
    Who's gonna count my time
    Oh me, oh my
    Who's gonna count my time

    Time will go, it never stays
    Memory locked in her passing
    Try, oh try to cling to her
    'Til she becomes everlasting
    The world's still blue
    My word's still true
    I feel I'm turning hollow
    She does as she please
    If ever she leaves
    I'll strangle upon my sorrow

    Oh me, oh my
    Who's gonna mark my time
    Oh me, oh my
    Who's gonna mark my time

    The road is past, tomorrow the sky
    Between sometimes is blinding
    Someday soon when I turn to cloud
    I will fly on her wings somehow
    Wrapped in the road and filled with above
    The ground seems to fade away
    Hold to the earth like a newborn child
    Pray she returns someday

    Oh me, oh my
    Who's gonna mark my time
    Oh me, oh my
    Who's gonna mark my time

    Oh me, oh my
    Who's gonna mark my time
    Oh me, oh my
    Who's gonna mark my time

    Oh me, oh my
    Who's gonna mark my time
    Oh me, oh my
    Who's gonna mark my time Writer/s: TOWNES VAN ZANDT
