Written by Bri-anne Swan

lyrics

It was twenty years ago
When I laid here all alone
Slowly freezing to the bone
As the river inched through ice and snow
The hiding was the way I lived
Where all the words were mine
On the far side of the moon between the pines

I would never say I’m lonely
‘Cause I don’t even know your name
All the memories come back slowly and mostly they face
This solitary place

Through the blanket of the night
You were cold and I was numb
I don’t remember what was said
Just the rush of guilt when you were done
Your footprints marked a shallow course
That traced my swift decline
On the far side of the moon in halted time

I would never say I’m lonely
‘Cause I don’t even know your name
All the memories come back slowly and mostly they face
This solitary place

(instrumental bridge)

It was twenty years ago
When I laid here all alone
Slowly freezing to the bone
As the words were slowly cast in stone
Your footprints marked a shallow course
That traced my swift decline
On the far side of the moon there was no crime

And I would never say I’m lonely
‘Cause I don’t even know your name
All the memories come back slowly and mostly they face
This solitary place
That time has not effaced
This solitary place
