lyrics

Are you home, sweet Argyle sister?
I need some talking down tonight
The chorus of despair is singing
And baby I believe it’s right

I want you to see how I’m living
And tell me I’m doing just fine
Cause I’ve been on a mission of love
Like a wounded dove and I believe it’s time to fly

We can all join in, greet each other as lovers and friends
Until we see the world we’ve known, so cold and alone,
It vanishes before our eyes
We’ll let no good time end ‘til another one
Is ready to begin
The saddest boy has finally made a new start
And that’s the state of my heart

I used to think that Time was a demon
Who would beat me in the crookedest fight
Now I know there’s much too much of him
To keep me in his sights

So Time he took back his burden
And said there’s someone here you really should see
His name is regret and you should talk
But I said I’ll walk because his debts don’t belong to me

Now I’m wandering to places where the truth is all we spin
Looking for a spirit guide to walk by my side
And all night we can revel in
The sound of joyful cries as unashamed tears well in our eyes
I can feel egos breaking apart
And that’s the state of my heart

We can all join in, hold each other as lovers and friends
Taking it all in stride, watching our fears die
With no illusion to defend
We’ll let no good time end
‘Til another one is queued up to begin
The saddest boy has finally made a new start
And that’s the state of my heart
