lyrics

Found inbound unfettered to the homeland
Forget regret, I do the best that I can
Your words, birds flying o’er the ocean
I heard a word pin me to the mainland

Egress, egret - we’re two birds of a feather
A stone was thrown, and never mind the weather
Unhinge the wind- a fortress in the venture
In light, take flight - encircling the never

La la la la la la la la
If only for today, today
La la la la la la la la
Darling come what may, what may
Whether you will wander you will
Weather you will wander you will take

Unclear, my dear - drop the coin in, pull the lever
Condoned, unknown - forgettable forever
I place your face on every wooden stranger
I tried my luck but never knew the danger

So farewell, my hell - I only dream in color
Grown, unknown - I’ll be a better lover
One day, some way - I’ll yearn to find another
If fate won’t take us holding to each other

La la la la la la la la
If only for today, today
La la la la la la la la
Darling come what may, what may
La la la la la la la la
If only for today
La la la la la la la la
Only for today
