The world loves... JP Garwood

This Place

Lyrics - JP Garwood / Music - Steve Leonard

Linking past to present
In an ever endless stream
Nothing here is ever as it seems

Swim the ocean for the notion
That we all will live again
Sure is nice to say, every now and then

But no one sees it
Or believes it
Or dreams it in the night
This place has gone to hell
But that's all right

Sinking stones descending
Down a spiral set of stairs
Pirates in the palace, no one cares

Good for hiding, not deciding On
any code or creed
Stay in the spotlight out of need

Fearing darkness and the starkness
of standing all alone
This place is all you have To call your own

Clinging to the history
Abandon mystery
And stay at center stage
Until it becomes a cage
Don't write another page
Don't write another page

Caring for the concept
That illusions never die
Keeps the idle minds from ever asking why

Keep your eyes bright, keep your hindsight
it's all you know
True love doesn't die if it can't grow

And fear the darkness
And the starkness
Of standing all alone
This place is all you have
To call your own
This place is all you have
To call a home
