From the recording Long Live Your Tomorrows

Lyrics

"Long Live Your Tomorrows" by Chris Wilhelm
 
I went out walking, just the other day
Shoes on a wire, farewell yesterday
A forest for the lonely, a temporary home
Seldom iridescent, on an earthly tongue
 
Here’s one for the forgotten, may you find your way
50 cents and a dollar, we all got dreams to pay
For I’ve seen the eyes of the interstate
For I’ve seen the lifted, and those who just could not wait
 
CHORUS
Long live your tomorrows
May you carry on
For I’ve seen them weak
And I’ve seen them strong
 
For I’ve dreamt in colors something seldom found
Mountain-to-sea, Daddy long-legs upon my trail
I learned to pay attention and drop everything These houses on stilts could never walk away
CHORUS Careless remarks on an open mind These daytime ghosts, these trees have eyes
So many variables, it was just a catalyst Dreamin’ of an ocean, filled with words
 
CHORUS
