Foy Vance – Sapling Lyrics

I remember way back when
I felt only ennui
Like nothing could complete me
No promise of a rising sun
Illuminating everyone
The very thought defeated

My life was a blinded light
Must be what it’s like when worlds collide
Especially when he sees her
Pretty soon he’ll tease her
I was on the road too long
My laboured lover only song
Not one of them a keeper

But if I woke in the morning to find you were gone
I know I’d try and find the will to be strong
But am I strong enough? Am I strong enough?
I once built a bower, I could build you a home
Together forever but forever and on
Is still not long enough, still not long enough

You look confused in your eyes
And I could see myself as a child
Such a devastating feeling
I wished I could go back in time
But all I could do was apologize
Right then your eyes were healing
Healing

Oh, if I woke in the morning to find you were gone
I know I’d try and find the will to be strong
But am I strong enough? Am I strong enough?
I once built a bower, I could build you a home
Together forever but forever and on
Is still not long enough, still not long enough

Oh, I’ve been Cain but I wanna be Abel
Been a drunken fool but I wanted to be stable enough
To lay every one of my cards on the table
Hope it’s not too late for us to find a way to

If I woke in the morning to find you were gone
I know I’d try and find the will to be strong
But am I strong enough? Am I strong enough?
I once built a bower, I could build you a home
Together forever but forever and on
Is still not long enough, it’s still not long enough

I will look, get inside myself for a home
Find only a sapling in search of an oak
Better to start my love, oh it’s a start my love
But am I strong enough?
