lyrics

There was an elegant girl
Living profligately
Her course had been set
It was straight, it was clear
But she woke up one morning
To find her life had changed without warning
Cos Fate can be the trickiest of things

Then she was afraid, for the land did shimmer and shake
And the stars did fall from the skies
When the waves retreated and she finally saw her feet
They were standing in the rubble of her dreams

What do you do when your gold turn to lead?
When the lights have gone out, and you're scared half to death?
And you wake up in the morning
To find your life has changed without warning
Cos Fate can be the slipperiest of things

Don't be afraid, though the land do shimmer and shake
Cos it's only gonna happen for a while
When the waves retreat and you can finally see your feet
There'll be a whole new life to live

Oh God it's hard to build a home out of sand
When one tidal wave can take all that you have
There'll be no peace for a while

So she struggles along, and she makes a new life
But she'll never forget that this might be the night
When she'll wake up in the morning
To find her life has changed without warning
Cos Fate can be the bitchiest of things

Don't be afraid, though the land do shimmer and shake
Cos it's only gonna happen for a while
When the waves retreat and you can finally see your feet
There'll be a whole new life to live

about

Volary San Francisco, California

The world of Volary is full of light and darkness. Most of the songs delve into the darker side of the human psyche, but as in a chiaroscuro, there is always light again. This dichotomy, yet juxtaposition of elements is an apt parallel to the name Volary; an obscure English term defined as a flight or flock of birds, or the cage you keep them in. ... more
