1. Come Round

From the recording Come Round


I felt with my elation, when out of time you just emerged
The unsettling sensation of many phases of my life converged
Different loves from distant days
Beating off this mellowed heart
Many years of peaceful ways
In danger now of being blown apart
Come ‘round, good things come to those who wait
Come ‘round, but do I have the strength to tempt my fate?
Come ‘round, what goes down comes ‘round sometimes too late
I had found so many friends back from years of being gone
But I never thought we’d make amends when you could have been the closest one
There are now many words to say
Hope competing with regret
How I drove you hard away
But found still that I never could forget
