From the recording Ignoring All the Glare
Ignoring All the Glare
A West wind blows in through the trees
Heâ€™s running late, Heâ€™s lost his keys
Encouragement is all he needs
He wants to leave, but just canâ€™t go
Climb down the ladder
Walk down the stair
Open up your eyes
Ignoring all the glare, Ignoring all the glare...
Everyone knows him, the one top guy
Sunâ€™s going down, but itâ€™s still in his eye
A better life he wished he could buy
But like the tide, he goes back in...
You think you knew him yesterday
Each and every time he acts a different way
Seems like all he wants to do is play
Or shed tears in his buried head...
I hear my songs on the radio
Timeâ€™s gone by, twenty years or so
The room turns bright and it starts to glow
But heâ€™s six feet underground
