song for a friend lyrics – aztec camera

words and music by
roddy frame

awake,
in winter’s crystal
hours,
and give to what gets
you in the end,
for the sake of a love
that just devours,
and smiles and takes,
and lays you down again.

run free
the moon is always
female,
straight to what’s
still and will not bend,
don’t wait for his
sunshine to surround you,
consume and fake,
and let you down again.

cos’ life is short,
and you better get
smart,
to the people who know
nothing,
and surround you.

stand straight,
in what kills you and
confounds you,
and break it’s chains,
and still believe.
