about

This song was inspired by the times as a child when I couldn't sleep and I would sneak out my window and walk the streets of Hamilton late at night.

lyrics

Listen to the night take deep breaths
Listen to the world waking with a start
You can hear the singer's heartbeat in one note when her heart is in her throat

When I was a boy I came to believe I was alone and I would go out into a night with two moons, one of which had been swallowed by the lake.
Could it be the real one or a fake, and is it my call to make?

Those who go alone, they go to be seen by the moon's knowing glow
and to listen to the depths below in this mortal boat we row

Though you're growing old you have still kept your smile and your shining eyes watch you as your lives pass you by
Listen to the hours whistle as they fly
Don't ask where they go and don't ask why, for you'll find out in good time.

Those who go alone, they go to be seen by the moon's knowing glow
and to listen to the depths below in this mortal boat we row

Listen to the day take deep breaths as if it was about to fall apart
Is this the reason that you make your art, to give us a new start?
