WHERE DO WE GO FROM HERE LYRICS

I’ve had a few enquiries from lands near and far asking for the lyrics for songs from Robin Foster’s Where Do We Go From Here album. To oblige the reading minds of the fans who asked, here they are:

A COLLAPSING LIGHT

I got nothing you’ve got something and it’s all I need

You got feeling I got stranger a collapsing light

You went searching I got lost

You found hope I ended up

Going on and on and on and on

 

Captured feelings locked them up

Sent them away from my heart

Left you standing in the dark

With the hurt tearing you apart

Going on and on and on and on

Going on and on and on and on and on

 

Called out empty saw it fall

Felt so heavy under it all

Saw the night of a hundred souls

They were wondering all alone

A reflection of my own

Left me singing my own song

Round in circles chewing up

Everything that I’ve lost

Everything that I’ve lost

Going on and on and on and on

Falling down inside I’ve gone and lost myself

…………………………………………………………………………………

CONCRETE SKIES

All these heights are so tall

They cover me tonight as I fall

Through structures to the cold ground

I feel lost in the muted life of this town

With hope I’ll carry on with the dawn of light by my side

 

These machines gather speed

Creeping up on me as I run away

Though the streets and red slip floors

Souls trapped in silence

There is nothing here no more

With hope I’ll carry on with the dawn of light in my eyes

 

Skeletons in wire and dust

Frames of lies and blood all rise above

Panic high all doors are locked

This blinding god controls everyone of us

This blinding god controls everyone of us

This blinding god controls everyone of us

With hope I’ll carry on with the dawn of light by my side

With hope I’ll carry on with the dawn of light in my eyes

With hope I’ll carry on with the dawn of light in my eyes

………………………………………………………………………………………………….

FORGIVENESS

I remember the first time

It made me feel I was leaving

To find light to begin

I had to forget and keep moving

Let the days fade my emotions slip into nothing

They slip into nothing

They teach us to prey forgiveness

But I won’t swallow what they feed us

No more no more

 

I’ll carry this rock

This old dead weight

like a noose around my broken next

Won’t fall down to the ground

This will be my lonely end

My soul time

My time

I won’t run away won’t hide away

They teach us to prey forgiveness

But I won’t swallow what they feed us

No more no more

………………………………………………………………………………..

WAIT FOR HER

I don’t know why she makes me feel alive and leaves me under hypnotised

I will go to the end I won’t fall I’m not here to let you go

You will shine forever high above my world you seal the cracks in me

We eclipse the facts of loosing time

We unite with our hands holding tight

But time is running out out time is running out time is running out

Time is running out time is running out I will wait for her

 

I don’t know how she opens up my soul and leaves me free to breath

I will go forever on and through the storm I won’t say no

I feel you from miles away

I feel you always

But time is running out out time is running out time is running out

Time is running out time is running out I will wait for her

Time is running out out time is running out time is running out

Time is running out time is running out I will wait for her

I will wait for her I will wait for her I will wait for her

………………………………………………………………………………………………….

BLACK MOUNTAIN

I’ll wait for you in the drought down by the faint flowing river

Slowly breathing in and out

I’ll be there at the end

Looking up at you

Looking up at you

 

I’ll call for you through the storm and the worlds broken and fragile pieces

Like a siren  Sounding out  your heart

 

Looking for you Looking for you

Looking for you Looking for you

For you

………………………………………………………………………………………

I am Dave Pen

    Dear Dave,

    As an adept of simplest pleasures, I’m a very enthusiastic person and my days are most of the time very happy ones !
    Today sounded like that… The sun came back in my beautiful country after two whole months of sad, rainy, cold days. This was already enough to make me in a very good mood !
    But today you brighten much more my day by sharing these beautiful lyrics with us !!
    Thank you soooo much !

    May I abuse of your kindness, sweetness and patience??? What if you could share the lyrics for Life & Death song from Metro Manila??? This one’s also a beautiful song and moreover a rewarded one !!

    So now, let’s improve my english with your songs…

    Cheers

  5. Hi Dave !

    Thanks a lot for the lyrics & mainly for this gorgeous album ! Your enchanting voice is really match with Robin’s mesmerising music. Luckily you have met to give birth to an amazing collaboration. It’s really different from what you use to create with BirdPen or Archive, but I also adore !!

    Moreover thanks to you I discovered Robin’s first album “Life Is Elsewshere” which is gorgeous too ! I’m really looking forward a new album from the “Kendal mad man” and yourself, and for some new gigs too… But I’m afraid that you’ll be quite busy during the coming months with Archive, BirdPen and all the races that you seems want to perform…!!

    By waiting, I’ll enjoy & sing along every words from “Where Do We Go From Here ?” ! Oh and can I abuse of your kindness by asking lyrics for “Life & Death” too ?? Incredible song that I listen in a loop…

    Hope see you soon again, whatever with a band or another… Love all your music, you’re just incredible, carry on !!

    Cheers from Normandy !

    I am only Emilie

  7. Let me express another request for the lyrics of “Life & Death”. Maybe somebody has already found it? It’s one of the purest pleasure of my last days to here this song and finding your blog.
    Don’t let the world destroy you.
