Story Behind The Song

The Web Unwinds

She feels the life they?ve built
Slippin? thru her fingers
So many years
So little time.
The man she?s always loved,
Has become a stranger
Silence grows between them
Like a vine.

And she fears
It may be over
But she doesn?t know
The way to say the words.
Can?t go back,
Can they start over?
Is it worth the effort
Just to say you?re mine?
The Web Unwinds.

Verse 2:

The kids are almost grown,
Years of stuggle over
They built a house, built a life.
But now it seems a strain,
To find a middle ground
Is there love enough remaining to endure?


Holidays and children,
Spark memories of the good times,
Like flint against the stone.
Alas it only serves as a reminder,
Of how far they?ve let this love of their?s decline,
The Web Unwinds.
