Lyrics:

It could have been any other three
Time was on our side then
This time either side of the sliding door
His was always open
Now I know how it feels to miss the train
And we can never come home home again
No I didn’t feel the desert then.
Cuz he was always making rain
It could have been any other three
For an accidental family
Till I heard a guitar laugh and saw a raccoon cap
come scuffling down his drive way
Now I knew by the time my first song ended
That we’d befriend and be befriended
Home again
Each of us our disbelief suspended till he said it sounds like a record
Of kids in the backyard
Climbing down the dark ladder
Playing singing capturing
A song to make the world
A touch more beautiful
Sounds like a record
The tears and laughter
Of friends on a learning curve
Their one devotion to a song that makes the world a touch more beautiful
Sounds like a record
Sounds like a record
Sounds like a record
Sounds like a record
Just as every stone rolls through night
We roll to a new day
Just as every yearling flew the coup
We all hit the highway.................................................
Don’t I know the kinder side of time gave me your name
Don’t I know time holds the reins
I know it well
Enough to tell
How lucky my aim
If just for that spell to have landed in your frame.




- For Tony Blake and Shawn x
