DAVID WILCOX lyrics - Dynamite In The Distance

DAVID WILCOX
"Dynamite In The Distance"

He plants the charges on the river
On the ice, on the ice,
He'll break the silence of the winter,
For a price, for a price

When you hear the sound from far enough away,
Even dynamite can purr,
Hand in hand along the memory of the way they were,
They were,
They were walking on the ice of all the things he'll never say to her.

They can drive out on the water
Like its land, like its land
He takes the detonator wires
In his hands, in his hands

When you hear the sound from far enough away,
Even dynamite can purr,
Hand in hand along the memory of the way they were,
They were
They were walking on the ice of all the things he'll never say to her.

Acres of snow
Long as that all ice stays hard
So they made their home
Safe within their lovely yard

She's got her ear against his heartbeat
In their bed, in their bed,
Somehow the things he's never spoken
Have been said, have been said

When she hears the sound from far enough away,
Even dynamite can purr,
Hand in hand along the memory of the way they were,
They were,
They were walking on the ice of all the things he'll never say to her.
