Lyrics

Belly of a Whale

Written By: William Parsons, Rachel Parsons, Megan Gregory

Belly of a Whale

(William Parsons, Rachel Parsons, Megan Gregory)

chorus:
I’ve been ridin’ in the belly of a whale
And I’ve been there for some time
My skin’s shriveled up and I’m looking kinda pale
‘Cause I’ve been too long in the belly of a whale

I ain’t seen the sun for many long days
And my feet haven’t touched the ground
I wish I’d have said what I have to say
Instead of living my life such a long way down

chorus~

Way down here on the ocean bed
where the water is crystal clear
It’s plain to see what I should have said
But how can I be heard from way down here

chorus~

It Was a Promise

Written By: Megan Gregory

It Was a Promise

(Megan Gregory)

Married in a whirlwind
No time to change your mind
She never was your girlfriend
But in a fortnight she was your wife

Everybody wants
To have their cake and eat it too
The world takes all it can from you
But no one would take your shoes

chorus:
It was a promise that you made, it’s true my love
It’s the same as your name signed in blood, signed in blood
There’s nothing in the world that can save you, save her or me too
It was a promise that you can’t undo

A friend gives advice when they feel
They’ve got a little to say
I’ll fight the urge to save you
I never liked saving anyway

Better get a move on
You have people to please
Good thing you like workin’
Down on, down on your knees

chorus~

The Elements

Written By: William Parsons, Rachel Parsons, Megan Gregory


The Elements

(William Parsons, Rachel Parsons, Megan Gregory)

A neverending circle is my destiny
Rumbling and tumbling to the sea
And the earth and sky are mine to intertwine and bind together
Until forever
I am a river

Mine is to be forever studying
The mysteries of living and dying
And when everything I have ever known is dead and gone
I’ll stand alone
I am a stone

bridge:
I am the same the whole world around
From places yet unknown
To every common ground

I scream with all the violence inside of me
I breath a gentle rustle through the leaves
And it’s never known where I’m from or where time will send
Me to again
I am the wind

I am the thread that weaves the rainbow
Keeper of the seasons and shelter from the cold
And everything I touch will change and never be the same
And still remain
I am a flame

bridge:
There’s a part of everything in every part of me
As long as time goes on
That’s how it’s bound to be

A neverending circle is my destiny
Rumbling and tumbling to the sea
And the earth and sky are mine to intertwine and bind together
Until forever
I am a river
