Schwa Lyrics


Lyricist: Ed McGee
Vocalist: Ed McGee
Sunrise -- I've seen 'em all.
The sun says "I've fooled you again,
your chance to sleep is gone,
you've cried clear through till dawn."
Utah -- too far away.
The road's just laughing at me:
"you'll never get that far,
just feel how hard the tar."

I say "your card was sweet, my dear,"
but you'd sent 20 out last year.
I say "I like the way you signed your name,"
you say "it's always been the same."

	And it's funny, but I don't really care.
	It may seem crazy, but I'm gonna go out there.
	I might not find it, but in Utah, I know
	I'll just keep looking for the heart, the X, the O.

Alone, the day is long.
The clock is mocking me well:
the face grins on the wall
and the hands don't move at all.
The wish beneath the bridge:
a train was passing above.
I feel your level gaze
after the memory of it fades.

	I was lonely, low, solo
	when you climbed and climbed and climbed.
	I still don't know where to go,
	but this is finally mine.

You climbed a summit ridge
and wrote my name in the stone,
so new joy is engraved
up high where eagles play.

And it might sound funny,
may seem crazy,
I might not find it,
but I'll just keep looking for 
the heart, the X, the O.
