lyrics

When I was a young man
I tried too hard
Had my life set up like a house of cards
A joker acting like a king of hearts
Till the wind came and blew me away

And I walked back alleys with my tongue untied
And a strange look in my eye
I sat and cursed the riverside
Laughing at the sun going down

It was long time coming but
Now I know that the one I needed
The one I thought would never show
Moved with the air and came without a moment to spare

When I was a young man I truly believed I was
Walking round in someone else’s dream
I swiped at shadows I kicked and screamed
Hoping maybe one day they’d wake
And I’d find there’s someone waiting there
Now I know that the one I needed
The one I thought would never show
Moved with the air and came without a moment to spare

Angeline
Show me everything
My saddest memory
Is every day I spent without you

Sing to me
That little violent melody
The one that called to me
In that life I lived without you

When I was a young man I tried too hard Angeline
