a new day at midnight lyrics – david gray

“a new day at midnight”

oh my word ain’t never seen
day so golden, earth so green
put my face into the stream
that i might see
what might have been

oh my heart how time has flown
feet that p*ss along the stone
i hardly recognized my home
all the paths had overgrown
the music and the laughter gone

‘pon my soul ain’t never felt
so free of all the chains i built
all the pain and all the guilt
vanished now beneath the silt
i’m striding ‘cross orion’s belt

oh my word i…
oh my word i…
oh my word i…
