about

This song was cut from the final album but I feel it is appropriate to share it now since it was written during this process and was inspired by my surroundings, as well as by the novel of the same name.

lyrics

I've been walking all night
I'll be walking till the end of the road
I've been hoping child-like
That all roads lead where I've been told

Make it wide make it big as the sea
Make it rise
Make it whole make it a part of me
Make it roll on

In the morning light
It's the only thing that makes me
Rise

I've been tossing all night
Trying to figure out a way back home
I've been staying out of sight
There's only one thing that could heal my soul

Make it tall make it wide as the sea
Make it rise
Make it whole make it a part of me
Make it roll on

In the morning light
Like a sea of green, my home I see it
Rise

I have seen too much
I am spoiled and rotten inside
Could she bear my touch
Could I leave this all behind

I got a one track mind
I've got to make it back to her door
The only thing worthwhile
Are the mountains I left long ago

Make it wide make it big as the sea
Make it rise
Make it tall make it a part of me
Make it roll on

In the morning light
Like a sea of green, my home I see it
Rise
