Recorded at Awesome Source studio in September 2016, this song is a follow up song to our song Clouded. It's a song about keeping going and holding on to hope for the future.


I’ve been nursing a cracked rib or two
Got to make time to breath when you’re battered and bruised
Turns out I’ve been dreaming only for you
But like all dreams they scattered and fled as I came to

But I’ll be holding out hope
At the wheel of this floundering leaky old boat
Cause who knows what the dawn might bring
And I’ve been squandering chances
Every insight I gain at the cost of my advances
But I scan the horizon and sing

I’ve been stealing hours from tomorrow
Sailing these seas always searching, but I don’t know
Maybe it’s not worth the time spent alone
And not worth the effort of fighting the undertow
