February 

Living in February

All year through

Playing with shadows,

But ghosts don’t play, anymore. 

 

Days spiral out of control,

Eyes stuck half open,

Chasing then waiting,

For a train that left, five minutes ago. 

 

La la la, la la la; Remember.

La la la, la la la; Remember. 

 

Skyscraper billboards turning,

It’s still the same, it’s still the same;

Memory yearning,

And emptiness is, the only echo. 

 

Remember, Remember

Burgundy on the fingertips of trees, snow-drops,

Still the sky remains unchanging,


Shadows whisper in the labyrinth,

It’s still the same, it’s still the same,

Memory with no memory,

You left me behind still collecting stones

 

Remember, Remember

Burgundy on the fingertips of trees, snow-drops

Look now the sky is changing;

For Brighid she is calling all her children home

Come on home, back to life again. 

La la la, la la la; Remember,

La la la, la la la; Remember.
