lyrics

IF WE RAN AGROUND

Summer has gone and fall is running late
We’re getting tired of the wait
We’d like to see leaves under our feet
We search for you in the street

Where did you go, so far away
A new army dies in the skies every day
If we ran aground, would there be a sound
I’m not even sure that you’re around

We’re losing touch, or at least that’s how I feel
We just keep spinning the wheel
The way that we are loving has lost it’s appeal
It’s not like that in the deal

Why have you gone, and inspired this song
We look to the hills, to the seas, and beyond
If we ran aground, would there be a sound
I’m not even sure that you’re around

You tell us to ask, then that is all we do
And we sit around and wait to hear from you
We search for a sign, when we haven’t got a clue
You’ve told us what we’re supposed to be up to

How have we strayed, so far away
And where is the faith to call down fire and rain
If once we were lost, but now we are found
Then why do we stumble as if bound
And why are we so underground
I’m not even sure that you’re around

about

Patrick Norton San Diego, California

I, Patrick Norton, write songs and play them for people in San Diego, CA. Folks say my story-telling tunes are at once nostalgic and relatable. But it feels weird to say that about myself. Who writes their own bio anyway? When not making music happen, I'm usually fooling around with old cameras, record players, rusty typewriters, and dusty books, while drinking coffee or other craft beverages. ... more
