I remember thinking about all the things that I would do It's funny how quickly that boy became you Sitting here drinking away all the things that I'd have done While the moments slip away and another one comes And the years keep rolling on keep rolling on like a beating drum They dont blink an eye or go back for anyone and the weirdest part of growing old is still feeling so young While the years keep rolling on keep rolling on keep rolling on I rememeber understanding I don't understand it all But knowing its all going somewhere and I'm part of that force These days my heart say you dont know nothing at all while the moments fall away and another one falls And the years keep rolling on keep rolling on like a beating drum They dont blink an eye or slow down for anyone and the weirdest part of growing old is still feeling so young While the years keep rolling on keep rolling on keep rolling on

Oh Christina, My heart is in it, is yours I can't tell anymore You shut all the windows you shut all the doors and the cracks in the ceiling they're mine and they're yours and the the water is are rising there's no where to hide like a lighthouse but when did we shut off the lights the wheels are still spinning the wood is still warm Theres a hole in the floor that we never saw Oh Christina, my heart is in it is yours, I can't tell anymore Oh Christina, are we beginning to fall I can't tell anymore These black in white halls and all of these walls and the shadows they're throwing remind me of yours as you're tiptoeing in and out of my heart Like you know it but you just don't know where to start and the wheels are still spinning the wood is still warm but these holes in the floor just wont hold us no more Oh Christina, my heart is in it is yours, I can't tell anymore Oh Christina, are we beginning to fall I can never be sure I can't tell anymore

Miley, I can understand why you'd wanna be somebody else for awhile you've been so many people for so many years All things ruin, crack and mold new things grow then we call them old But we're all looking for a lie that we can share Did you feel the limelight Slipping away from your hold Did you feel the darkness sinking into your soul Glowing isn't easy and nobody wants To feel forgotten, to be forgot Amy died running through the night Trying to hide from the quiet inside But you never can, you never will, it's yours Takes it's toll all that rock n roll It takes another little piece of your heart and soul But we're all climb but not the fall Did you feel the limelight Slipping away from your hold Did you feel the darkness sinking into your soul Glowing isn't easy and nobody wants To feel forgotten, to be forgot Can you see the names in the flickering lights they're gonna fade Cos' we are all the same With the voices in our heads lingering We just want to be Someone somebody else wants to be Did you believe Hollywood was gonna set you free Did you feel the limelight Slipping away from your hold Did you feel the darkness sinking down into your soul Glowing isn't easy and nobody wants To feel forgotten, to be forgot

All the years Roll together Like the beat of a drum Like the beating drum All the waters Run together Like the rain falling free Like the river to the sea And we run, like a river to sea All the years Fold together Like the turning of a page Like a slow turning page Hold onto nothing But for your love It will come undone It's all coming undone And we run, like a river to sea Yeah we run like a river to sea Where my heart will be free

about

Hi Friends. Thank you for the support and thanks for listening. I felt like these four songs shared a candid simplicity and belonged together on Strum Strum. Thank you to everyone who helped make this, my family and friends who continue to encourage and support me, and all the amazing friends I meet along the way. There are too many of you to mention here. Thanks for listening. Luke
