The Hammer and the Chimes
Lyrics and music by Catherine Scholz
Your eyes took me to places I’d longed to know.
Goodbyes are tearful faces afraid to show.
Memories of the time we spent
Cannot be taken from my mind.
Perhaps the only purpose we had
Was listening to the hammer and the chimes.
Then our fears got in the way.
It’s clear that I had to pay.
Would you admit that we both had a part to play?
Our fears got in the way.
So many things I’d like to say
Without my words getting in the way
There’s so many things I’d like to do
If only I could get through to you.
Your eyes took me to places I’d longed to go.
Goodbyes are tearful faces letting go.
