about

“It is such a mysterious place, the land of tears.”
― Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince.

lyrics

deer tracks in the snow
all the time in the world, nowhere to go
i look in the mirror, what do i see
all the broken pieces of me...

you know i crossed that great divide
but i was only along for the ride
from an airplane window looking down at the sea
and all the broken pieces of me...

buried ‘neath the desert sand
are sailing ships built by unknown hands
for the tide they wait so patiently
all things return, eventually...

like a scratched old record my skipping heart
only gets so far then back to the start
but the tune stays in my memory
with all the broken pieces of me...

you know i always cared for you
your brave ideas, your shifting point of view
you taught me to listen and you taught me to see
all the broken pieces of me...

i didn’t want to bring you down
i only came to call, i won’t stick around
each moment is precious and the past is through
and i’m just another broken piece of you...

deer tracks in the snow
all the time in the world, nowhere to go
