As I Leave You With The Weather

https://soundcloud.app.goo.gl/eziuA Every little thing that’s past is goneOnly what you fancy figures onwardWhen exactly what is right is exactly what is wrongAnd to the step you’re reaching leads to shivers shalledSo walk alongTen cents only richer by a song Long across is nature’s simply sparseLazy days are sutures for the darknessAnd just about as daring … Continue reading As I Leave You With The Weather
