The Resigning Pope (Sam Whimpenny)

Gold! I've been chasing it all my life
Sold to slavery and sullen strife
I know now least said soonest mended
Somehow I doubt it's come about as life intended

Fold: discretion is the better choice
Cold and calm: you can hear it in my voice
Promises lost or unattended
I've lost the dream that made it seem it never ended

Life will never lie to you
Keep the window open
Things can change

Bold: it isn't me who jumped the gate
Told: I turned the corner much too late
So they claimed they had the power to take me to my dreams
But in all the time I've known them I ain't never had a bean


from Good To See You Again, released May 1, 2014
Written by Sam Whimpenny, Arranged by Porvari.
