Recorded in the summer of 2009 with Rob Pevitts and Booth Hardy on bass and drums. This is basically a live take.


My eyes have seen the glory of you
Once upon a time I'd have left it behind
Didn't tell the difference between who
Right or wrong, but I know now
Slowly walk away
from things I had then
Slowly walk away, you holding the door
I don't want anymore
it's just a distraction
But your love ignites a symphony in me
These bad times keep us fighting
Will we ever smile again?
Let's try to work and listen
And walk away from this
My eyes have seen the glory of true
Once upon a time I'd have left you
slowly walked away
for things unattractive
slowly walk away
you wanted more
reaching for the door
I left my family
but your love ignites a symphony in me
