The Archives – The Lyric Book “The Tether

Feeling jaded by life sometimes feels like your tethered down.  It could be a job or a dread or a point in your life that has you tethered. Sometimes it takes someone else to smack you out of it.  When they do, you’re free from the tetherand may commence living.

The Tether – Final Version

 

Running in one direction left me so far from home
That I lost my intentions, the only way to go was alone

And every time night surrounds me the bed will lie hard and cold
Awaiting a warmer body to lie in the folds

Out on the tether you celebrate never
and wake for the weather, a bachelor forever
you don’t see the stars even when you are staring
cause no one is sharing the same set of eyes

I met her in cold October when walls were three stories high
and on each side dancing embers longed for the sky

Out on the tether you celebrate never
and wake for the weather, a bachelor forever
you don’t see the stars even when you are staring
cause no one is sharing the same set of eyes

Give me your hand and your heart and wait for the snow
We’ll dance when it lands and hold hands whe its time to go
I’ll give you my faith on a sterling sliver plate so you can dine
We’ll toast to the death of the wall and leave the rest to time

Will you leave me out in the dark to die
or will you give me the last dance of the night
I had a heart once, but I forgot his name
I hear he hangs around the same place, I bet he’s still the same

Now that the tether has gone with the weather
We’ll never say never, punch drunk forever
And I see the stars every time I am staring
cause now we are sharing the same set of eyes

Running in one direction now that there’s not much to guess
here where they dont play chess
we’ll lie in the wake of the songs that we make so let’s love and partake
