Song Description

Our longing to keep the things that matter to us and the realisation that we cannot.

Story Behind the Song

I wanted to express how we dont own anything, not even ourselves, because life is transient.

Life's Contraband by Riley Savage
Verse 1
I've watched a leaf unfurl
Walked on white sand
Saw a tiny hand uncurl
That's life's contraband
Most of my wishes
Will never be
They're mosaics of bliss
but they don't belong to me
I'll grab them, with both hands eagerly
But they won't be mine
No they won't be mine
No, not for all time
Verse 2
The universe will cry
with laughter at my tears
I've lived on golden lies
As the days stole my years
As I fade away
Losing all I adore
I'll beg another day
Whilst death gives me the tour
I'll bargain, and barter and no one will hear
And nothings mine
No none of it mine
It won't be mine anytime.
I've punched the sky
And fell to earth
Hopes shrivelled and died
Before I knew their worth
I took it, for granted, so cavalier
And nothings mine
No none of it mine
it won't be mine anytime
it won't be mine for all time
