about

I wrote this song after realising that at one point, I'd already made it 'through the clearing'. I just hadn't realised it yet. It's about moving forward and learning from your experience, and a little reminder to practise being kind.

lyrics

We've come through the clearing, our journeys end is nearing.
I'll stay here, steadfast, resolved of all your doing.
I was hoping we might see us through.
Now I know, better, there is no us together.

Your heart is a river, the blood flows thick and freely.
A chasm of helplessness, you better stop the bleeding.
Bandages and panadol don't cover wounds like yours.
Only love does, and hope helps. It also hurts like hell.

Keep no secrets from her.
Be open, kind and honest.
Bring no demons to her.
Nightmares are unwanted here.

We've come through the clearing, our journeys end is nearing.
I'll stay here, steadfast, resolved of all your doing.
I was hoping we might see us through.
Now I know, better, there is no us together.
