about

My first attempt at writing a villanelle. Although successful (I think), I never had an idea of how to include it in any of my projects. Finally it made sense on an album. The perfect closing track

lyrics

Between Ample Skies And Oceans Deep

Between ample skies and oceans deep
where shooting stars will leave no trace
rest your heart before you fall asleep

mountains rise all high and steep
from riddles carved into your face
between ample skies and oceans deep

where all your creatures cry and leap
for those who run but cannot keep the pace
rest your heart before you fall asleep

with promises too soft and frail to keep
for those belonging to a fallen race
between ample skies and oceans deep

over rocks of age your shadows creep
to keep the silence in a secret place
rest your heart before you fall asleep

for all you've sown but cannot reap
praise your love in times of absent grace
between ample skies and oceans deep
rest your heart before you fall asleep
