Against The Skyline (Featuring Kevin Welch)
A late night walk hadn't taken me to a storefront on a street in our hometown

It was well below the freezing mark and the snow was really coming down

And the frost upon the window reminded me of our second last goodbye

Who am I to think that I would ever understand the reasons why


The clouds against the skyline were telling me I'd settled here too long

And a freight train in the distance was singing an old familiar song

Once you found my weakness you wouldn't leave that part alone

I realized that words and empty bottles are all I've really owned

(Chorus)

And no one I have ever been, comes closer to the me I am with you

You feel the words inside the rhyme, always keep in perfect time and tune

And nothing else within in my life, has even scratched the surface of that truth


The sounds of traffic on the street were muffled by the newly fallen snow

As I rubbed my hands together clenched my fists and turn around to go

As if inside my frozen palm I held the only reason to go on

As I watched it tumble to the ground I knew in an instant I was wrong

(Chorus)

And no one I have ever been, comes closer to the me I am with you

You feel the words inside the rhyme, always keep in perfect time and tune

And nothing else within in my life, has even scratched the surface of that truth
