Song Description

Seeking out nature and peace rather than cities and strife. Also the idea of how small we are in the great scheme of things.

Story Behind the Song

I took two years to finish this song. When I though it was done out came this middle section about how fragile and small one human life is and thus very precious.


Take These Walls
Anthony Caplan

Take these walls away
I want to see the country side
The hills and rivers

Birdsong in my ears
The faintest rustle of the wind
Through trees and tall grasses

Chorus I can see you laughing with me
For what seems like an eternity

Looking out over a bridge
I watch a leaf caught in the stream
It's moving so swiftly

It reminds me of myself
I hardly take the time to stop and think
I am moving to quickly

Chorus I can see you laughing with me
For what seems like an eternity

Walking across the school field
It has been a long day
Off to take a swim now
I'll stay until I have had enough
Then I see the full moon
I'm completely spellbound
As I'm struck by how small
And how fragile my life is

Did I see the moon move?
Or perhaps it was my mind instead
As I look into her face
What does that expression say?
Does she smile?
Does she frown?
Perhaps she does neither and just keeps on
Spinning around and around
And around and around and around
