One day, one day, 
An old course, 
A new cause. 

And I’ll stop, 
I’ll stop looking back. 

Won’t side with change, 
Just to allow, 
The past to take, 
From here and now. 

One day, one day, 
An old cross, 
A new dawn. 

And I’ll keep, 
Trust in those to come. 

Won’t stay the course, 
Just to forget, 
What stands before, 
Not lies ahead. 





 

Making do, 
It was only ever you. 
Thought this through, 
There was only ever you. 

Casting your redundant dreams aside, 
Wings have been clipped, 
Skin is raw, 
From all the ties. 

Making do, 
It was only ever you. 
Thought this through, 
There was only ever you. 

Distanced by wishes, 
That can never come to true. 
If anyone could change this, 
It would be… 

Losing touch, 
Resigned to love, 
To lead a life, 
Or to be led. 
Enough because it has to be, 
A string of tuneless melodies, 
Set to play, 
Play on out the minutes, 
Of each day 

Distanced by wishes, 
That can never come to true. 
If anyone could change this, 
It would be you. 

Making do, 
It was only ever you. 
Thought this through, 
There was only ever you. 





 

I don't want to task you with, 
Keeping me afloat. 
Much as I am still that boy, 
Pulling at your coat. 

I won't lay my worry down, 
Save a thought to spare. 
Though I'm laden up with mine, 
You've your own to bear. 

I won't let my troubles weigh, 
Heavy on your mind. 
Anchored down but trying to take, 
One day at a time. 





 

I’ll steady the boat, 
Whilst you gather your thoughts, 
Finding the strength to steer your heart, 
Away from the rocks. 

But what if I can’t see a way, 
through the swell? 
And I know that I will, 
It’s just harder to tell… 

Don’t you cry yourself to sleep, 
He’ll be there, 
In the strength you’ll need. 
I know it’s hard, 
But once we raise the sail, 
You’ll see, 
It’s still his name in the breeze. 

And I’ll be your eyes, 
’Til you see past the tears. 
Won’t leave your side, 
Without finding the words, 
That we both need to hear. 

But where can I turn, 
When there’s no-one to call? 
And we’re nearing the shore, 
But we’re taking on water. 

Don’t you fall down to your knees, 
He’ll be there, 
As you find your feet. 
I know it’s hard, 
But once wee raise the sail, 
You’ll see, 
It’s still his name in the breeze.
