about

First single from "If You Were Here, I'd Be Home Now."

"It’s a rather simple song, but it’s the good familiar kind of simple we have all heard before and love. The kind of music you might play around a campfire with some buddies and some beers, making memories of the good old days. " wordkrapht.com/main/2014/03/24/the-daily-krapht-monday-appreciation-society-blankets-of-youth/

lyrics

I promise all those drinks I had were from the bottom of my heart
I soaked myself in sincerity and pretended it’s a place to start
I threw myself around the room and eventually I came back with you
Well, it’s a wise demise that shines and blinds
And keeps you there for at least a little while

And somehow it all gets dropped
Under blankets of youth and a ticking clock
And the shades of grey
Become a pattern we accept and an excuse to stay

The days alone can make love bloom
With the turning of my head
My future wife across the room
Is going downstairs instead
And our children start to slip away
As I’m struggling just to say my name
I’d put my arm through a pane of glass
If only to have your name on my cast

And somehow it all gets dropped
Under blankets of youth and a ticking clock
And the shades of grey
Become a pattern we accept and an excuse to stay

And how carelessly cold
I can be to the things I’m told
And your eyes as they try to find
A feeling that is recognized.
