lyrics

Long View
Music & Lyrics by Nathan Graham & Grahame Lesh

Lost one night, far from home
Take that chance that the route is known by someone near

Clear blue skies, this celestial sphere
Us mortals, we’re in constant fear of losing time

Maybe I’ll get older and learn this is how it’s done
Or I can stay a little longer in the sun

Like building a ship in a bottle
Like rowing a boat on the open sea
I look past you looking at me
I take the long view

Four fresh eyes - catch big waves
avoiding dead guys in deep graves as we ride

Green signs and painted road lines
Ain’t never started early but always give them overtime

Maybe we’ll get older and we’ll take back all that time
Or we can stay for just one more glass of wine

Like building a ship in a bottle
Like rowing a boat on the open sea
I look past you looking at me
I take the long view

Like holding a note for a moment
Like taking another look at you
I give up all my easy days
I take the long view

Like a golden eagle soaring high above,
I wanna be bold while I’m gone
Like a harvest mouse spotted far below
I wanna run home before too long

Rains fall down, first in weeks
Still my breath while heaven cries itself to sleep

Next year will come, more dry ground
What can we do but wait here while it all burns down?

Maybe I’ll get older and learn this is how it’s done
Or take the view that our revival has begun

Like building a ship in a bottle
Like rowing a boat on the open sea
I look past you looking at me
I take the long view

Like holding a note for a moment
Like taking another look at you
I give up all my easy days
I take the long view
