Steamboats

lyrics by: Britton Newton

​

​

​

Looking past these old steamboats 

The grayest love flaunts her halo 

Like a child drowning in his own words 

Will the Silver Rain draw my breath out?

​

I hear the angels making deals and stealing hearts 

What has Love become?

If I could melt into the Sound of laughter, Id be reborn

​

Who can hold the sun when the earth would not allow? 

Gather the eager winds, tear these lands apart 

Patience is a game for the fools and the idle hearts 

Here, I am one of them, beginning my last end

​

Silence rings like whispers

They dance so madly in the belly of my mind 

Searching for the fires, bleed in rainbows 

Pull me out of Sleep

​

Who can hold the sun when the earth would not allow? 

Gather the eager winds, tear these lands apart 

Patience is a game for the fools and the idle hearts 

Here, I am one of them, beginning my last end

​

Make way for the flood 

Laying down fiction in-between 

What you say means nothing to me 

you am i...

​

Will the Silver Rain fall here,

Just one drop, so I can see it clear?

Who am I to pull on the hem of a cloud?

I need an honest rain that would flood in droves, 

and it would drown...

​

Will it fall?
