Lyrics Day Eighty – ‘Comfort’

Hey everyone,

I promised to write lyrics about various memories and experiences that I had, and today’s lyrics are based on a very brief moment, but one where I’ll always remember the feeling that I had. My brother wanted to buy a new football, and asked Dad to take him into town. I think I was probably 7 or 8 years old, I’m not sure. But, I remember watching them leave from the window, and just feeling so comfortable, in that moment.

Looking back, I think it was the security I felt, knowing where they were going, and that they would soon return. I comment on it briefly in the lyrics, but it’s funny how in a life made up of many years, single moments seem to define our existence, where we truly feel alive. I guess it’s just about making as many of those moments as possible.

Stay safe ~

Sean

Comfort (Verse, Half Chorus, Verse, Chorus, Bridge, Chorus)

I’ll always remember the comfort
associated with that memory
father and brother outside
looking back at me

 
Sun was setting outside
pink coloured the sky
dull hum of the engine
as I exhaled a peaceful sigh

They were just going to town
I was staring through the window
acknowledged the cosy feeling
as I watched them go

Sun was setting outside
pink coloured the sky
dull hum of the engine
as I exhaled a peaceful sigh
Sounds strange to experience
happiness as they were leaving
but actually it was because
I knew they’d be returning

In the grand scheme of things
it was a microscopic event
but that’s what we remember
the special feeling in a moment
I’ve been living all these years
it makes a mockery of time
to remember only a fraction
where I felt truly alive

 
Sun was setting outside
pink coloured the sky
dull hum of the engine
as I exhaled a peaceful sigh
Sounds strange to experience
happiness as they were leaving
but actually it was because
I knew they’d be returning
