Schwa Lyrics

Hidden Away

Lyricist: Sean Jenkins/Eric Sargent
Vocalist: Eric Sargent
VERSE 1
old faded memories covered in rust
treasures from long ago turned into dust
waiting for someone to open the door
but nobody comes around here anymore
 
pages from books that have never been read
words that were written and never were said
packed up in boxes and hidden away
never again see the light of the day
 
and all of these things that we don't leave behind
just sit in the darkness of night
spending a lifetime hidden away from the light

VERSE 2
far past the crack in the old cellar door
under the boards in the living room floor
letters from someone you knew in the past
searching by flashlight the shadows are cast
 
long since forgotten but still on your mind
left to the wayside but not left behind
we carry it with us and don't even know
why we hold on and cant let it go
 
and all of these things that we don't leave behind
just sit in the darkness of night
spending a lifetime hidden away from the light
 
BRIDGE
and the minutes are turning to days
as the memories are fading to grey
and the feeling just sinks like a stone
hidden away in the shadows
forgotten and left all alone
 
VERSE 3
out of the shadows and into your hall
thoughts are collecting and building a wall
consumed by the life you were living before
cast off the burden and open the door

and all of these things that we don't leave behind
just sit in the darkness of night
spending a lifetime hidden away from the light
