about

This song is a circle closing, it's the moment of redemption.
I describe someone walking on a shore, picking up a pebble and throwing it into the water. Watching the ripples, he has a moment of epiphany. In that moment he comes to terms with everything he’s lived, good or bad. Like the ripples in the water, the circles form and fade, over and over. Watching the water, the ripples become a metaphor for him to understand himself and to find peace or even redemption in the stories that he has lived.

lyrics

I’m counting time on a pebbled shore
I see it pass from some to more

I throw a stone and a ripple's made
I watch it grow until it fades

The journey's hard and the path is long
I walk the way that keeps me strong

But even mountains end up as sand
Upon the ground for us to stand

A million rain drops are falling now
Into the ocean they are bound

A million circles on the surface placed
They fade as fast as they are traced

We are like water we are like stone
We are of flesh we are of bone

And when the tie is closed and drawn
Like water and stone we are reborn

If my songs were maps I'd want them to stretch from the English moors to the Saharan dunes via the plains of the Mediterranean.
