Lyrics: Hiding So Long

{ words & music by Simon Spire }

*

See the day

Holding something I can’t touch

Asking me is it too much so turn and walk away

It’s out of reach to me

Like photos in a bottom drawer

And something’s here

Waiting everyday

Something kind of vague but still there’s something in the way

Swinging back and then

Looking to find a footprint

*

I’ve been hiding so long, I don’t know where I’ve gone anymore

I’ve been hiding so long, tell me where it went wrong I can’t find it anymore

*

When all is done

There’s nothing left to say

Nothing matters anymore so take it all away

It’s just a blur to me

Running around in circles

And when it’s done

There’s an ache inside

And it’s calling out

There’s nowhere left to hide

Holes are waiting there

And they’re saying there’s no escape

*

I’ve been hiding so long, I don’t know where I’ve gone anymore

I’ve been hiding so long, tell me where it went wrong I can’t find it anymore

*

Like waking up forgetting where I’ve been

And for a second I could see what it was to be free

Taking all these words and dreams

I can’t see what it means

Is it me?

Am I older than I seem?

I’ve forgotten what it means to feel

I just keep chasing the wind and it’s dragging me down this stream

*

I’ve been hiding so long, I don’t know where I’ve gone anymore

I’ve been hiding so long, tell me where it went wrong I can’t find it anymore

*
