From the recording Pictures of the Sun

Lyrics

Pictures of the Sun by Chris Wilhelm
 
Tryin’ to get back to something new
She was staring at an awkward hill
They said to get back from the gates
But the truth is coming and it just can’t wait
 
We roamed and rambled through the fields
She had to take the steering wheel
Then they came and we didn’t know what to do
They can’t take your dreams from you
 
(CHORUS)
Every time you wish it weren’t true
They will stand in front of you
You’ve got something they just cannot take
You’ve been walkin’ on an unfamiliar lake
 
I can’t tell you what everyone’s done
She was taking pictures of the sun They can’t change my mind or how I heal
They can’t riase the price on how I feel
 
They want to put a wall around us all
Keep us from the people who did nothing wrong
But me I’m still tearing mine down
‘Cause I want my friends around
 
(CHORUS)
Every time  you wish it weren’t true
They will stand in front of you
You’ve got something they just cannot take
You’ve been shakin’ off that old familiar ache
 
Time waits for no one
There’s beauty in a day
Sometimes you stumble
Then you find your way
