Reflections from 2020:

When you're raised to see the world divided into two types of people, and told you're the good kind, it's a shock when you find yourself on the other side of a locked door when you disagree. Terror gave way to peace once I realized the world was not divided that way at all. In the end, I was only cut off from those inside the wall because they had built it, not the other way around.

lyrics

Out on the moor alone tonight
Out on the lonely moor tonight
Gather around me now twilight
Gazing up at the cold starlight

Stand in the shadow of the light
Here in the shadow I delight
Harder to see which way is right
Out of the stained and coloured light

Loved and lost

We bear the mark of second sight
We bear the scarring of hindsight
And from the hour our souls took flight
We knew we’d never make things right (for them)

Loved and lost

Quite a surprise to find that I
Am not alone here after all
Quite a surprise to find that I
Am not alone here after all

The steeple before me blocks the sky
Blinds my eye
The steeple before me blocks the sky
Blinds my eye

Quite a surprise to find you here after all
Quite a surprise to find you here after all
After all, after all

Quite a surprise to find that I
Am no alone here after all
After all, after all
