Here's a song about endings I've nearly finished and I think I'm happy with. It's acoustic at the moment but may be played with a band. Responses would be appreciated! crit 4 crit

You and I have travelled here
from a green and pleasant land
across potholes and plotholes and fallow fields
with the future snapping at our heels
a brass band balance on the crest of a wave
polished gold flash serenade
but they're not playing our song
they've never heard of it

the dragonflies grow old in the everday
tie a reef knot and venture out to sea
they sing a winding, willowing song
of the end of all roads - land's end

My love is far away
Beyond the ragged night and time's all-weaving wave
Has taken away the hopeless dream
we pawned with our fates to the stars above
a steam powered donkey crashes into the sea
the gears within howl and grind
as it rides through eternity's star scattered maw

the dragonflies grow old in the everyday
tie a reef knot and venture out to sea
they sing a winding, willowing song
of the end of all roads - land's end

the horizon is a hard thing to focus on
your eyes slide away to the south
and I say to myself, ''well, that's that''
and set a course for the north

the dragonflies grow old in the everday
tie a reef knot and venture out to sea
they sing a winding, willowing song
of the end of all roads - land's end
