Lyrics

Past the belvedere

Written By: Christian Wicky

I’ve been down this road and I’ve seen this town
I’ve been here before and the kids still look the same
In this corner of the world they know me well
I’ve been caught round here I can show you where
You go through the garden and past the belvedere
When you see the darkness man you’re almost there

(chorus) I would look them up and I’d come around
And I’d give them toys and I’d ask them
Hey, is your daddy here
Is your mama hangin’ round
And they’d let me into these empty houses
And I’d be father and they’d be mom
And sometimes man the game went on and on

Well I don’t know much but I know what’s true
And I know I’ve never had a friend like you
And you’re almost ten so the world you know it well
If you come real close here just a little more
I can take you where you’ve never been before
Oh my little man right here he’s almost grown

(chorus)

They can drill my head they can kill my soul
They can tie me up but I’m always in control
Oh the liars in this room I know them well
If I rest my case and I pass the test
And they let me go I swear I’ll do my best
Tell my little friends outside I’m almost there
I’m almost there

Past the Belvedere
