about

when you can't get away from the one who got away

lyrics

My mind has sailed the seven seas and my body's come real close
My dreams are better than TV yeah - you should try a dose
I run through these scenarios, I don't take it slow
Time isn't our side these days - how could you not know?

I've spent hours upon days
Travellin' far, so far away
Out of state, out of home
I see friends, I'm not alone
I've spent weeks upon years
Trying to face my fears
Out of line and out of place
Out of pickin' up the pace
But still, I don't get far
No I can't, I can't forget how good you are

This space age city sheds no light
No glimpse to the soul
Bears no resemblance to the fight I'd fight to fill that role
And in the other corner, is where I wanna be
And you're standing in the middle - tell me, would you fight for me?

I've spent hours upon days
Travellin' far, so far away
Out of state, out of home
I see friends, I'm not alone
I've spent weeks upon years
Trying to face my fears
Out of line and out of place
Out of pickin' up the pace
But still, I don't get far
No I can't, I can't forget how good you are

And when I go - it seems that life should be so crazy
And I know - that this could be my best escape
Look ahead - I see a light on the horizon left for me
My destiny

The ship that you've been cruising is one triangle away
And legend has it, you've been lost a century they say
And if should resurface, and wash up on my shore
I'll let you drink the blood from the heart you had before

I've spent hours upon days
Travellin' far, so far away
Out of state, out of home
I see friends, I'm not alone
I've spent weeks upon years
Trying to face my fears
Out of line and out of place
Out of pickin' up the pace
But still, I don't get far
No I can't, I can't forget how good you are

about

Sarah Burton Toronto, Ontario

Burton’s career started in 2006 with a broken heart, a broken down van, and a haphazard tour across Canada in a van named Lucky. This set the tone for an artist life driven by adventure, spontaneity, and a desire to connect with people from all walks of life. ... more
