This song took over ten years to write and two years to record in three different places with five different people. Dealing with writers block

lyrics

| F | G |
Be still my mind, flickery flighty.
Light in the sky light up my mood of the month
Storm clouds and questions.
Knock knocking the nearest door.
| Am | G | F |
Green grow the rushes they grow.
Scatter these thoughts to the breeze
Green grow the rushes they grow.
The river it runs to the sea.

Somewhere somehow, turn on a six pence.
Bolt and then burst into flower
Light on a line tightrope and teaspoon.
Wandering hands to the hour

Green grow the rushes they grow.
Scatter these thoughts to the breeze
Green grow the rushes they grow.
The river it runs to the sea.

| Dm7 | Am | Dm7 | Am | Dm7 | Am | G | G |

| F | G |
When all the things inside my head
Are echoes of things I already said,
Then should this pen lie still?
But my still pen feels so bereft
And still it has so much ink left
That silence seems a shame
| Am | G F | Am | G F |
So let the words begin to flow,
Let the words begin to flow
| Am | G F | E7 | E7 |
Let the words begin to flow out again

| Am | G | Am | G | Am | G | E7 | E7 |
Suffer the sighs and the silences,
A vacant pause for the dramatist
Show me the signs and I will not ask for more...
Cross my heart
