lyrics

17 Years

I left my heart in pieces, seems a lifetime ago
Between Queensland and the sands of Byron Bay
And the light house keepers cottage, such a symbol of our love
I left damaged from the words I didn’t say

The towers fell down and my world turned around and I lost myself along the way
And I never thought I’d get the chance to say these things to you, today

CH
It took 17 years to speak your name
But my broken heart is beating once again
You’ve shined mercy of my soul, I no longer feel alone,
Laura Jane

17 years, 9 months, 5 days
And the beauty in your eyes is still the same
Love is shining in my soul, hey together let’s grow old,
Laura Jane

Where the wind will take us, nobody knows
Life is full of twisting, turning roads
The children in your arms, show the beauty of this life
There’s no mistakes, only the unknowns

And I can’t take back the things I said, the things I didn’t do, But I’ve also walked a long, long mile
And I’m different than I used to be, but still the boy inside of me, needs to say

CH

I’ll cross the Oceans and lie in your arms
And reflect upon our moments of grace
Was a time of phone cards and dreams yet unmade
Let’s dream them all once again

With deep blue eyes and softest smile
Let me drown in your face for a while
Love is shining in my soul, Together lets grow old
Laura Jane

It took 17 years to speak your name
But my broken heart is beating once again
You’ve shined mercy of my soul, I no longer feel alone,
Laura Jane
