lyrics

ADAIGO words & music: bill mallonee
it all showed up fractured
it all showed up broke
it was never a story
more like an unfinished note
and the sighs? they were deafening
more than pictures could show
adagio

all the laughter of childhood
fell through the iron bars of the years
and the bright path of youth
grew dim & unclear
on a trail marked with sorrows
to a place nobody knows
adagio
CHORUS:
i have dug through my heart
like a plot full of weeds
something strangled by thorns
something crushing the seed
and the rose? it lies fallen
in the ice & the snow
Adaigo

me? i took to the highways
could be i went for the view
all the cities were crumbling
and my choices were few
was i looking for someone?
was it you? I don't know...
Adagio

CHORUS:
i have dug through my heart
like a plot full of weeds
something strangled by thorns
something crushing the seed
and the rose? it lies fallen
in the ice & the snow
Adaigo

i have reached out my hand
i have prayed every prayer
i have reached out my hand
to grasp the thin air
it was never a story
more like an unfinished note
Adagio....
