Ribbon Road lyrics


Landlines

LANDLINES

We are the children of our time
we are the lines across the land
around our eyes you'll see the tracks
and in our memory, a map

We are the children of our time
the lines of life across our hands
and in our dreams we have and hold
for time has passed and we grow old

We are the children of our time
we are the stones, the grit and grime
the years grassed over clean and green
washed into air, no longer mine

We are the children of our time
we are the lines across the land
around our eyes you'll see the tracks
around our lips the kiss
of love and laughter, never coming back

We are the children of our time
we are the lines across the land
we are the trains of steam and coal
we are the graveyards, ghost and cold

We are the children of our time
and time has passed
and lines have crossed
and in our memory, a map
and when we go it will be lost
