Escape

Written By: Rob Augustine

I stand right here beside you
I know you're thinking
just what I am
Have all our prayers exhausted
Have all the lines been drawn
I don't want to wait here forever

One day not too far from now
We'll get out of this hole
We'll see the world
through open windows
And no bars or braided fence
Will keep our feet upon this ground

The days are getting ever longer
In the night no slumber
welcomes me
Have all our calls been answered
Have all the cards been placed
I don't want to wait here forever

One day not too far from now
We'll get out of this hole
We'll see the world
through open windows
And no bars or braided fence
Will keep our feet upon this ground

The way is clear now
But it's never easy
To do what's right falls against my grain
But all the roads are open
The guards are fast asleep
With haste we can make it
to the mountains

Much Too Much

Written By: Rob Augustine

One morning in the early fall
She woke and he was gone
So much he'd spoke of moving on
But she just could not leave
It seems this time upon himself
The urgency built up
When the moon is high
She sits by the sea
And dreams of his return

It much too much to bear to know
She longs to see the sails offshore
White and blowing in the breeze
Can I escape across the sea

A wanderlust he always had
He'd said since he was born
She understood and in his eyes
A freedom she'd never known
But loyalty to this tired life
Refused to let her leave
When the moon is high
She sits by the sea
And dreams of his return
