Sirens

Written by: Pierce Edens

Well, the road gets blocked over the ridge at the top
from the snow and the ice in the rain
And the water’s coming up but it doesn’t matter none
’cause this one isn’t getting away
The dull and the quiet has turned so sharp and silent now.
I’m straining my ears I’m listening for the slightest of sounds

Because I heard it once it was just a song on the wind and I’ve been chasing it around ever since then
I heard it once it was just a song on the wind and I’ve been chasing it around ever since then
Here I go again


See, I’ve been following so long that siren song
and the only road I know back home
Whenever it disappears the only thing that I can hear
are whispers of it on the wind blowing
I used to go to work every day just praying for something more
Now, I’m that old cliche warning careful what you’re wishing for



‘Cause I heard it once it was just a song on the wind and I’ve been chasing it around ever since then.
I heard it once it was just a song on the wind and I’ve been chasing it around ever since then
Here I go again


I went out on the freeway in the early morning
when all the world was still blue
And the ache in my head slacked off a little bit
as I watched the failing of the moon
‘Cause the sun was still abed
but the clouds up overhead
They were lighting off like they were on fire
And I watch them burning
with the lessons I’ve been learning
from the offerings we made to the meantime


Yeah, I heard it once it was just a song on the wind and I’ve been chasing it around ever since then
I heard it once it was just a song on the wind and I’ve been chasing it around ever since then
I heard it once it was just a song on the wind and I’ve been chasing it around ever since then
Here I go again
