Music and Lyrics by GJ Torres

lyrics

All in all sweet Marigold
There's a red moon tide in the dust lit sky
Set your mind and your heart
To the back of the beat
Both entwined
In wilting harmony

Moving on
a thousand wide
In the west lane ticket to a better life
Don't look back or you'll never be free
Heed one voice
and you may find where there's...

Room for thought
It'll only be there if you want it
Send your love
But only see the signs for a fee

Stealing in without a sound
Where the east end summer
of a restless town
Is a one way visit
to the top of the stairs
Your mind's still a wandering
But I don't see you anywhere

I'm trying hard to understand
why we can't find love in our fellow man
It's in my head to my hands
and the back of my feet
What might have once existed
is a dead cold part of me

Feel no shame
for we may see
what you're made of
Hold your head down
and move your way 'round
to the sea

Steel yourself
If we should fold to the distance
Lose yourself now
and dance to a dark melody

Brother can you hear me
Can you hear me, brother?
Brother can you hear me
(Who will peel the Heather from your eyes?)

Brother can you hear me
Can you hear me, brother?

No one's gonna stand
For what you want to plan
Your life around

Show me how to break down love
When the old ones tremble
like the stars above
Meet her out in the fields of the ol' Ventucky
Lost inside
a magical mystery

Don't look up
You know this world is a strange one
Hold your head back
and we'll go on pretending to the end

Brother can you hear me
Can you hear me, brother?
Brother can you hear me
(Who will be the Heather in your eyes?)

Brother can you hear me
Can you hear me brother?

No one’s gonna stand
For what you want to plan
Your life around
