First single from My Father's Son's sophomore album, The Greatest Thaw.


A choir in the night was singing loud
With the careless hum of lamp posts burning out
As a child in the night so cold and clean
I never felt those days escaping me

We were ghosts in the graveyard running round
'Til mother's worried voice came calling out
Never knowing every ghost could have no name
That every curtain fall would fall the same

The moon she lied to me
The sky is not as endless as it seemed
That space between the stars I'll never know
Like a ribbon in the wind, these days come and go

In the bosom of the night where shadows grow
My fever running wild, my breathing slowed
In that reoccurring dream I was lifting stones
The small ones weighed the most, yeah so it goes

The moon she lied to me
The mountains weren't as high as they once seemed
Those rocky tips that I was never meant to know
Just a flash in the pan, these days come and go

Casting lines all those years ago
Barefoot on the shore with muddy toes
All those memories too far gone to tell
Stuck inside some driftwood on my shelf

The moon she lied to me
This time was much more fragile than it seemed
Like a scent of memory I seldom know
Like a ribbon in the wind, these days come and go
