Steve Skaith Band - Empires & Us

Lyrics

Just like the rare Salerno snow
Come the seconds that I don't feel
This incessant sirocco
That comes cloudless with your scent.
(And whispers my descent.)

All my counting can't decrease
These hours that you're away
They come as scarce as days of peace
These moments I forget
(And add interest to my debt.)

Near me, near me.
Near me - near as blood in vein
Near me - near as eye and hurricane
Near me - near as heart and beat
Near me - near as this unforgiving street

Who could ever slow the pace
Of the orbit of this rock
I stare alone into the face
Of this dusty satellite
(Blinded by its light.)

Near me, near me.
Near me - near as blood in vein
Near me - near as eye and hurricane
Near me - near as heart and beat
Near me - near as this unforgiving street

What you left is what you'll find
I'm here delivered, I'm sealed and signed by you.
