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?
