lifeblood: songs: lyrics: fate's a cold face


i see wind
in the trees
i see the leaves
shiver in the breeze
and the stone
so carelessly thrown
will change the surface
of the water as we know

i see stars
standing my ground
they've shifted light
they've moved around
my dimming sight
oh sweet time
when i was yours
and you were mine

fate's a cold face
she stares unmoved
as we make our plans
and do the things we do
but how we tempted her
until the end
and though we loved and lost
i'd do it all again

since the start
since the fall
there's someone
trying to make sense
out of it all
it seems a waste
to give the tools
to till the land
then turn around
and take
the harvest from our hands

fate's a cold face
she stares unmoved
as we make our plans
and do the things we do
and how we tempted her
until the end
and though we loved and lost
i'd do it all again
