Courtyards of the Past

[Lyrics by Ron Mann and Allie Cat Segars]   2013 CHA Promotions

Streets are crowded with faces sad and disgraced
Riding drawn carriages into domains of time replaced

Distance fades to grey as dim
passages are soon erased

Minds surrounded in thoughts which move too fast
Embracing what lies ahead as the future play is cast
Free yourself of judgments chains in the courtyards of the past

Images in black and white create gardens of our sin
Ancient buildings with eyes of history watched from within
Windows in moonlight reflect amber lights of what has been

Minds surrounded in thoughts which move too fast
Embracing what lies ahead as the future play is cast
Free yourself of judgments chains in the courtyards of the past
 

Minds surrounded in thoughts which move too fast
Embracing what lies ahead as the future play is cast
Free yourself of judgments chains in the courtyards of the past

Forest of timbers over soiled lanes in the courtyards of the past

Fields of green as we overcome the courtyards of the past
