Brand New Sitting Still (Skaught/Carino)

Take a walk around autumn fields
Step a little softer
Say a prayer ‘til summer yields
And slam the door I entered wrong last time

Wading through a diamond pool
Feel the sting in my eyes
Rising up clear and cool
Same old city brand new boundless sky

I feel the way her skin still feels
I let a patient star shine down a minute
I leave an empty song unfilled
Same old motion, brand new sitting still

I couldn’t sleep a wink last night
I sat and watched the sky move
Golden in the morning light
Lovers waking all over the world


Same old spinning world, brand new tumble ‘round the house
