lyrics

Damaged dark, sunset days
Thunder and lightning
The boy is done with breathing in
Needles and pins

He is one day up and one day down
And knows not where in between
One day up and one day down
And knows not where he goes in between

He longs the shoot, stem and root
Of his father's endeavours
He yearns a heart, soft and sweet
To dance to his mother's love

But he is one day up and one day down
And knows not where in between
One day up and one day down
And they know not where he goes in between

Well don't despair my darlin'
Paint your dreams and fly, my child
There's life and love and colour
Wherever you ride

The pages turn as you seek to learn
The reason for living
Well when you skim cheek and chin
You know you have begun

'Cause it's underfoot and on your hands
And inside the listening ear
Underfoot and on your hands
And inside the listening ear

So don't despair my darlin'
Paint your dreams and fly, my child
There's light and love and colour
Wherever you ride

It's underfoot and on your hands
And inside the listening ear
Underfoot and on your hands
And inside the listening ear
