about

A song about having a heart-attack at your desk, and being grateful

lyrics

I’ve slipped my cables mess-mates
I’m drifting down with the tide.

And I am dreaming, Avaline in spring
I am learning, learning all my fears are to begin again
Afresh, anew, a fresh dawn in bloom.
More like a hot wind through a crowded room

Forever running on the wind
Forever running on the wind

The sun is shining through the window on my back
And I’m falling asleep at my desk
Think I’m gonna roll away now
Gonna take a little rest

Forever running on the wind
Forever running on the wind
Forever, no trains running on those rails
Forever running on the wind

Think I’m gonna roll away now
Think I’m gonna roll away now
Maybe my heart stopped at my desk now
Maybe my heart stopped at my desk now
Think I’m gonna roll away now
Think I’m gonna roll away now
Let them find what’s left now
Let them find what’s left now
Forever running on the wind
Forever running on the wind
Forever running on the wind
Well there’s a wind building and it looks like it’s going to be a bit of a blower
And the seagulls are in from the coast and that’s rarely a good sign
And it looks like the whole of the southern sky is a thunderhead
And the storm warning on the radio is talking
about 1920 something
Forever running on the wind
Forever, no trains running on those rails
Forever, no trains running on those rails

I’ve slipped my cables mess-mates
I’m drifting down with the tide.
A saddened stormy angel
The offshore wind in his eyes
