Lyrics
Second Wind



I remember well,
Those far-off days,
In the morning rain,
To the hills again,
My friend,

And how it seemed,
Those golden days would never end,
Riches that we’d never spend,
Back then,

But back then,
All we knew were summer days,
And every sky was blue,
And plans we made on the wind…..

Now those days are gone,
And we’ve both grown old,
Where dreams are sold,
And the fires are cold,
My friend,

And though we still,
Wonder how it might have been,
Wonder what it all could mean,
It’s all gone,

But it’s gone,
Far beyond the everyday,
Far above the world,
In songs that sing on the wind….

Awesome
I was active here several years ago and always remembered your songs about Lord of the rings (of which i have a couple downloaded onto my music library). I really enjoy your tracks, man.

That's really so encouraging. Thank you. Knowing someone's out there who gets something of what you do is pretty priceless, as you probably know all too well yourself!

Remember you, too!

Marc....you've returned!!! it seems several of us have come back after a long break and I see you have left Salisbury.Enjoyed the lovely melancholy of this one although the instrumentation does seem slightly back in the mix, ( just a tweak). Nice to see you back here. Check out my song "Smiling", I think you might relate to it.

Cheers

Very nice indeed
Wonderfully contemplative and like Calchas I find there's a lot there to relate to.

Cheers
