Matthew And The Atlas – I Will Remain lyrics

[Verse 1]
Further from my widowed home, take the road that sets into the sun,
Waiting for my skin and bone to return and see what I've become,
Summer has not yet been here though my days are long,
Take me back to when the night was young and another song was sung.

[Verse 2]
What of all those pretty tales, the ones that took me to this door?
Is it comfort in the siren's wail, the comfort upon this wooden floor?
Tell you, is it a failure to forget the ones you once held dear?
And I try to remember but my mind is no longer clear.

Ooooh Oh Ooh, You've recognized me,
(Ooooh oh ooh ooh ooh) I followed far, far from the trees,
(Ooooh oh ooh) The roots came up, up to my knees,
(Ooooh oh ooh ooh ooh) they twisted 'round,
I made no sound... No sound.

[Verse 3]
I wandered 'til my brittle bone had succumbed and pulled me to the stone,
Further from the towns you've known I'll remain from where I had begun,
Stumble before I start I was kicking all the stones as a child,
In the meadow when the storm came through and I burrowed straight back to you.

Ooooh Oh Ooh, You've recognized me,
(Ooooh Oh Ooh Ooh Ooh), I followed far, far from the trees,
(Ooooh Oh Ooh), The roots came up, up to my knees,
(Ooooh Oh Ooh Ooh Ooh), they twisted 'round,
I made no sound... No sound.

[Verse 4]
Would you ever doubt my love when my day is done?
I lay down my body within this earth I've won,
Would you try to follow the roads I had to walk?
There's a whisper in the willow, from there you'll hear me talk.
