  • Lyrics
  • Today I found my soul
    I felt it die inside of me
    So I turn to you
    Life is like that you know
    I have your face in a photo in high school when you were alive but that's all I have
    And I can't remember who I was myself then and it doesn't help still I look to you as a friend to tell me

    Who we are now, who we are
    Who we are now, who we are
    Where does time go now on a wake for young souls

    Who we are now, who we are
    Who we are now, who we are
    Where does time go now on a wake for young souls

    Like a lullaby we sing

    Well the wind that blows its blowing colder and the child that grows she's growing older
    And friends we know they'll turn a shoulder
    The friends we know they are growing colder

    Who we are now, who we are
    Who we are now, who we are
    Where does time go now on a wake for young souls

    Who we are now, who we are
    Who we are now, who we are
    Where does time go now on a wake for young souls

    Where's my soul

    Cycle of the moon brings blood to the women
    In the blood of the woman brings birth of a child
    Child grow up
    Keep forgetting something
    Birth of a child comes someplace wild you
    Even grey days beat the shade to wean
    Unbodied unsouled unheard unseen
    Let the gift be grown in the time to call our own
    Let the truth be sewn before the window's closing
    Truth is natural like a wind that blows
    Follow the direction no matter where it goes
    So it shall be the earth and the sea
    Let the truth blow like a hurricane through me

    If I've been cold, if I've spoken in anger, to have been bold, forgive me
    You know I don't see your mother, not like before, though she hasn't forgotten she doesn't like to be reminded anymore.

    Annie got married it didn't come with out tears like the day you died I have laughter for these years

    Who we are now, who we are
    Who we are now, who we are
    Where does time go now on a wake for young souls

    Who we are now, who we are
    Who we are now, who we are
    Where does time go now on a wake for young souls

    All the things we know are going to fall away from me like a grain of sand slips through a good friends handWriter/s: STEPHAN JENKINS
