Original: Josh Ritter - Change of Time

I had a dream last night
I dream't that I was swimming
And the stars up above
Directionless and drifting
Somewhere in the dark
Were the sirens and the thunder
And around me as I swam
The drifters who'd gone under

Time, love
Time, love
Time, love
It's only a change of

I had a dream last night
And rusting far below me
Battered hulls and broken hardships
Leviathan and Lonely
I was thirsty so I drank
And though it was salt water
There was something 'bout the way
It tasted so familiar

The black clouds I'm hanging
This anchor I'm dragging
The sails of memory rip open in silence
We cut through the lowlands
All hands through the salt lands
The white caps of memory
Confusing and violent

Time, love
Time, love
Time, love
It's only a change of

I had a dream last night
And when I opened my eyes
Your shoulder blade, your spine
Were shorelines in the moon light

New worlds for the weary
New lands for the living
I could make it if I tried
I closed my eyes I kept on swimming

Time, love
Time, love
Time, love
It's only a change of time

Hell yeah Fairsquare. Great folky tune. It's funny thinking about all the ways I'd have ripped this in highschool but I'm glad I can appreciate this kind of thing now. You did the original tune justice. I took off a half star for uploading a cover but I doubt you'll hold that against me. Think of the other stars as a thank you for sharing this with me and making my day a little better :)

FairSquare responds:

Thanks man! And about it being a cover.. i just don't have the time and also the skill to write an original song. I have done some attempts in the past, but whenever i write some lyrics and read them again after a couple of hours they go straight into the bin.
Maybe i'll write some songs when i'm older and actually have something worthwhile to say.

Thanks for the review, glad you enjoyed this piece :)
