Emmett Tinley: Music and Video

Two Years On

(Emmett Tinley)
Once I had only lies
Like stone weighing down my days
Worn, emptied of my love
So soon or so late
But you never even tried
The one that I was waiting for
The wild October wind
Blew me through the open door

And if from the start my aim was true
Then this is the song I made for you

Snow begins to fall
We shelter in a street
As dawn draws out the life
From the Tin Soldier’s heat
You say you’ll be mine
And I hear an early train
You lying by my side
And for the first time I can feel
Your wide open heart
Longing for the world

And if from the start my aim was true
Then this is the song I made for you

You never even tried
The one that I was waiting for
The wild October wind
Blew me through the open door
And I knew
Yes I knew

Once I had only lies
Like stone weighing down my days
