heroes & thieves

More Than This

Cradling stones hold fire bright as crickets call out to the moonlight, as you lean in to steal a kiss I’ll never need more than this.

We all share the pain of our histories but the ache goes away if you could see this night under stars, well, I call it peace if you say, ‘I’ll never need more than this’.

The trees grow so thick. You can barely see through. But the forest bestows the simplest of truths: you think you’ll be happy if granted one more wish but the truth is you’ll never need more, you’ll never need more, you’ll never need more than this.

Want so much in this life. There’s so much to be. We sail through our youth so impatiently until we see that the years move along and soldiers and heroes come home and they carry a song:
“Don’t live in forgotten times
May this always remind you of the sea under the skies blue looking glass.
Let’s make this our story, let’s live in the glory
Time, it fades away,
Precious as a song
Cause someday we’ll be gone”

Cradling stones hold fire bright as we watch the glow of the morning light…Someday our bones here they will lie, and so we sing as the years move along and soldiers and heroes come home and they carry a song:

“Let’s make this our story,
Let’s live in the glory
Time, it fades away,
Precious as a song
Cause someday we’ll be gone”

More Than This – Vanessa Carlton
