Nailing Down The Wind lyrics

by Beeb Birtles
Longer than the longest time
I've been tryin' to find,
where do all the answers lie
to these questions invading my mind ?
longer than the longest note
I've been trying to hold on,
sweet and sound emotions
are all rolled into one.
Where or will i find you
my eyes have been blinded
I am nothing without you Lord,
of this I get constant reminders,
and I can trust nor depend upon
my own understanding,
try to live out this life of fate
can be so demaning.
And friends they keep on telling me
'what's the use in believing ?',
but how do I explain to them
it's the heart that's deceiving ?
We learn to crawl before we walk,
we learn to sound it out before we speak,
fools if we believe in any other god we might see,
we learn to hide our feelings strong,
the broken barricades that lie within,
all seems foolishness like nailing down the wind.
- guitar solo -
Longer than the longest time
I've been tryin' to find,
where do all the answers lie
to these questions invading my mind ?
longer than the longest note
I've been trying to hold on,
sweet and sound emotions
are all rolled into one.
And friends they keep on telling me
'what's the use in believing ?',
but how do I explain to them
it's the heart that's deceiving ?
