lyrics

On the train to Amsterdam
Stopping now in Rotterdam
I guess I should give a damn
I’m leaving on my own
We just had the summertime
Now there's trouble on your mind
And a distance in your eyes
That sinks me like a stone

Cause love is just a choice to make, babe
And every choice is hard until it ain't
But if you ask me darlin
There's no such thing as fate
Love is a choice you have to make

With all the things to sing about
Most days I can't make a sound
I just sit and think about
Things I'll never do
I can hear the silver bells
Ringing down the old canals
I don't think that I have ever
Truly been this blue

Cause love is just a chance to take, babe
And hope it treats you kind along the way
Cause if you ask me darlin
Noone can rig the game
Love is just a chance you have to take

Well, winter melts to honeyed Spring
Colours all the people in
I feel the planet start to spin
Maybe I'll survive
And one day soon I'll wind those stairs
I hope I'll find you standing there
With sunlight tangled in your hair
An answer in your smile

Cause love is just a choice to make, babe
And every choice is hard until it ain't
But if you ask me darlin
There's no such thing as fate
Love is just a choice you have to make
Love is just a choice you have to make

about

Steve Wallis Paris, France

Steve Wallis writes honest, clear eyed folk songs, driven by his shrewd fingerstyle guitar, and his wry gift for finding joy in the melancholy. His songs are old letters from ex lovers, regrets folded into fond souvenirs, that final glance back before rushing onwards.

In 2018, Steve's song 'Melbourne Rain' reached new success after it was featured in PS4 game Detroit: Become Human.
