Handwritten

Album: Handwritten (2012)
  • Pull it out, turn it up, what's your favorite song?
    That's mine, I've been crying to it since I was young
    I know there's someone out there feeling just like I feel
    I know they're waiting up, I know they're waiting to heal
    And I've been holding my breath
    Are you holding your breath
    For too many years to count?
    Too many years to count

    And we waited for the sirens that never come
    And we only write by the moon
    Every word handwritten
    And to ease the loss of youth
    And how many years I've missed you
    Pages plead forgiveness
    Every word handwritten

    Let it out, let me in, take a hold of my hand
    There's nothing like another soul that's been cut up the same
    And did you want to drive without a word in between?
    I can understand, you need a minute to breathe
    And to sew up the seams after all this defeat
    All this defeat

    And we waited for the sirens that never come
    And we only write by the moon
    Every word handwritten
    And to ease the loss of youth
    And the many, many years I've missed you
    Pages plead forgiveness
    Every word handwritten

    Here in the dark, I cherish the moonlight
    I'm in love with the way you're in love with the night
    And it travels from heart to limb to pen

    And we waited for the sirens that never come
    And we only write by the moon
    Every word handwritten
    Every word handwritten

    And with this pen, I thee wed
    From my heart to your distress

    Every word handwritten Writer/s: BRIAN FALLON
