Midsummer Field

Chris Houston

All alone in your house
you’re watching the birds
‚till they all fly away down the street
The sun eats them up,
and you start to believe
they’re meeting their god in the sun
And all the beautiful ones that you’ve lost …

Did you cry all night long,
like a warm summer rain
Did your tears melt away in the moon
I bet that your colorful eyes
follow everyone leaving soon
All the beautiful ones that you’ve lost
as your fate turned around

Lay down those rocks, get the ties off your feet
chased by a storm in a midsummer field
If you don’t run away, the wind takes your soul
and one day you’ll die in your dream

As you cry all night long,
I stand outside in the rain
see its drips melt away in the moon
It seems that my black and blue eyes
are sleeping, dreaming of you
And the beautiful ones that you’ve lost
as your fate turned around

Lay down those rocks, get the ties off your feet
chased by a storm in a midsummer field
If you don’t run away, the wind takes your soul
and one day you’ll die in your dream

Lay down those rocks, cut the ties off your feet
chased by storm in your recurring dream
If you don’t run away, the wind keeps your soul
and one day you’ll die in your sleep
