lyrics

VERSE 1:
WE MET WHEN WE WERE JUST MANAGING TO HOLD A CONVERSATION
TWO PEOPLE MEETING INNOCENTLY IN A LOCATION
A SITUATION THAT MOST KIDS GO THROUGH
WHEN THEY ARE FIVE YEARS OLD
AROUND FIVE YEARS OLD
MEETING MY CLASS FOR THE FIRST TIME I FELT SHY
EITHER I HIDE OR I TRY TO FORM A WEE TRIBE
SIDE BY SIDE WE WERE SAT THEN WE CLOCKED EYES
AND SILENTLY BECAME FRIENDS IN SUCH A SHORT TIME
UNPOKEN UNDERSTANDING OF THE CONNECTION SO RESPECTFUL
ADMIRING ONE ANOTHER’S ATTRIBUTES AND THERE WERE SEVERAL
WE CHATTED AND WE MINGLED AND LISTENED TO THE TEACHER
BUT KNEW SOMEHOW THAT NOBODY ELSE COULD EVER REACH US

CHORUS:
I HAD TO BREAK AWAY
LIKE AN ECHO IN THE WIND
ONE MORNING I AWOKE
AND I KNEW

VERSE 2:
SO TIME PASSED AND WE WERE LIVING OUT OF EACHOTHERS POCKETS
TWO PEAS INSIDE A POD BUT THERE WERE SIGNS OF ROTTING
YOU SEE MARTIN WAS A DIFFERENT BOY
THERE WAS SOMETHING COY ABOUT THIS DIFFERENT BOY
FROM THE EARLY DAYS WE WOULD FIND SO MANY WAYS
TO END UP STANDING AT THE DOOR OF THE HEADTEACHERS CAVE
WHILE THE OTHER CHILDREN PLAYED
IT WASN’T BRAVE TO MISBEHAVE
BUT SOMEHOW BY MISBEHAVING
I HAD FOUND MYSELF A NAME
WE DID WHAT WE WANTED MISTREATING PEOPLE IN THE PROCESS
VERBALLY PHYSICALLY IT’S NO MYSTERY HOW IT SURFACED
A COMBINATION OF CHARACTERISTICS IN THE TWO OF US
THAT LED US DOWN A SLIPPERY PATH

CHORUS:
I HAD TO BREAK AWAY
LIKE AN ECHO IN THE WIND
ONE MORNING I AWOKE
AND I KNEW

VERSE 3:
ONE MISTKE LED TO MANY IN MY TEENAGE YEARS
AND ALTHOUGH I WAS SLOWLY OVERCOMING THE FEAR
OF LETTING MY PEERS DOWN
THE MAN INSIDE WAS STILL DROWNING
BUT I COULD START TO HEAR THE SOUND OF HIM CRYING
MARTIN WAS BEING LEFT BEHIND
AND THE SCENE HE WAS LIVING WAS DRIFTING FROM THE BLESSINGS HE WAS GIFTED WITH
THE LIFE HE WAS LIVING WAS TORN SO MANY PAGES MISSING
WHEN HE CAME OUT OF PRISON HE HAD NOBODY WITH HIM
SO HE TOOK IT UPON HIMSELF TO MAKE A FINAL DECISION
LISTEN TO HIS INSINCTUAL CALLING FOR ONE LAST MISSION
A VISION THAT HIS DESTINY WAS STRICKEN AND WRITTEN
UPON THOSE TRACKS

BRIDGE:
IS IT ALL A REFLECTION OF INNOCENCE
YOU MAKE NO SOUND WHEN NOONE HEARS
WHAT’S IT WORTH ALL OF THAT SUFFERING
IF YOU ONLY HOLD BACK YOUR TEARS
IS IT ALL A REFLECTION OF INNOCENCE
WHO ARE YOU IF NOONE SEES THE TRUTH
BUT THERE’S AN ECHO WHEN THE TREE FALLS IN THE FOREST
THERE’S AN ECHO YES THERE’S AN ECHO
