One Long Poem - feat. Owen McCarthy

from by Cody Melville



In the season, will I care for the wind
Casue I never know
A little time is set on fire
Come in from the cold
Oh the walkout kid
Embrace all your sins
In cars there’s whiskey to be downed
Everyone surely knows
Carry me to the summit down
Where angry men withhold
And I’ll – our world is a simple day
I’ll do it all in the second show
Oh I look around
The hand is on the stone
And I’ll be the one to calm
All the calls to come
Hand me a simple idea
Hand me the timing of old
All the high rock walls to climb
Step on the son of the shown
And the teardrop guitar I own
Leans against the wall
Any Sunday I’ll be found
Wandering by the falls
Cast it and settle down
All forces to the wind
I live to lay it down
And now we slow it down
To handle a year of song
Call it a settled town
Where once was a stormy sinner now
Ah, there’s never been a wander
Wander or else and then
How clean is the water out there
Has the window been broken
And how is your path to getting there
Selling off is more trick
And oh it’s a time keepers game
And oh it’s never too late
