lyrics

I found a little piece of heaven
I wrapped it in a cloth
I slipped it in my pocket
That valley in the sun
I carry it around with me
Whenever I feel lost
I found a piece of heaven
And I wrapped it in a cloth

Fishing in that black lake
I think I caught the moon
It was round like yellow butter
It was smooth like a river stone
It was heavy as the tape hiss
Before the guitars bloom
Fishing in that black lake
I think I caught the moon

Those days
Those days never really end
If we can keep the fire lit
If we keep singing into it
It might never fade
But we, we get older all at once
Before you notice it's all gone
And then you'll know
That nothing stays the same way for long

Time is slick like oil
Time melts away like snow
It's a sunset in the mountains
It's friends you used to know
It's all these goddamn hours I've spent
Locked inside my home
Time is slick like oil
It melts away like snow

Those days
Those days never really end
If we can keep the fire lit
If we keep singing into it
It might never fade
But we, we get older all at once
Before you notice it's all gone
And then you'll know
That nothing stays the same way for long

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.
