lyrics

With an air of decision, when I left BC
I was a man upon a mission, with a monkey chasing me
I ran out on the runway, made peace with what I’d seen
Went to where the world looked nothing like the places I had been

I keep my favorite images close to my chest
They warm me and reframe me in my struggle with the rest
And it’s time that takes the colour so nothing stays the same
I say the wisest ones are grateful for the chance to go again

Oh ohhh... coming into my own

A day in late November, through Frankfurt on the train
I was trampled down and lonely, left the bahnhof in the rain
The keller crew were ignorant, and I’d lost my ground again
While these covers fanned the madness, I felt the blackness in my veins

Then I limped back into East Berlin with a hurt that filled my eyes
I was rolling like a zombie with a heart too scorched to cry
So when the answer landed on me it wasn’t with surprise
That I gave the life remaining to the one thing left to try

Oh ohhh... coming into my own

Well my baby you’re my saviour, my witness, my refrain
It’s a sign of what I’ve done right that you come in my life to stay
With a million miles behind us, through the fortune and the fuss
We’ll come screaming into heaven with these hearts still dragging us

Now it’s hope and resolution, emerging from the dust
With these Daytons pointed forward, well I’m kicking off the rust
I never been so hopeful, and I never seen such luck
I believe in guardian angels, in the rhythm and the trust

Oh ohhh... coming into my own
Oh ohhh... coming into my own
