lyrics

GATEKEEPER
Gatekeeper, where there’s no wise leader
There be no brighter lighter
But you keep letting it in
Gatekeeper, here is your read minder
There is a kinder teacher
But will you let them in?

Gatekeeper, there’ll be no rhyme reason
Hopeful the right season comes so we can begin again
We begin again; to begin we begin again and then
Gatekeeper, surely a strange kinder helper to come later
But that’s not the journey’s end
Just an ending but not the journey’s end yet

Like a city without a wall you are open to anything
Lose the government of your soul
‘Cos you’re so open to everything
Well, don’t go listening to the voice of a stranger
Don’t you go listening to that voice

Like a city without a wall you are open to everything
See you flirting in the danger zone
Trying to be all things to all men
Won’t you take your stand when you get hurt?
Haven’t learnt your lesson when you feel it burn?
Fired up? It should get you fired up
Still it’s aching? Fire up!
Got to get to you - get fired on all cylinders, yeah!

You should be a kinder teacher to me
But will you let me in? No
Will you let me in? No

Don’t fade away
Why you have to fade away?
Why you gonna have to fade away?
You don’t have to fade away
That’s not how the story was supposed to end
Let’s begin again, let’s start again
You don’t have to fade away, away
