Things Just Get Away From You

by Three For Silver



Here we present our spring single for 2022, inspired by a work of art by Walt Holcombe, and accidentally our pandemic anthem.
Mr. Holcombe kindly lent said art to be the cover.


we had missed the turning point
our angles all out of joint
roads all turning inward
though we wanted to get out
but there's no stream that doesnt bend
like there's no tale that doesnt end
things just get away from you

now i'm singing with the moon
her midnight flowers all in tune
things just get away from you

we thought that we could choose
to eat our cake and have it to
but the world will shake you off
like so much dust from her shoes
be not troubled by regret
the worst hasn't happened yet
things just get away from you

see the fire paint the dark
a conflagration from a spark
things just get away from you

toss a coin for everyone that was lost
and we'd have funds enough to buy ourselves some time
tie a knot for every promise that was broke
and we'd have rope enough to climb out of this life

it's a story that you've heard
though the lesson goes unlearned
you can know the ending
and still think you wont arrive
just how in spite of this song
you will forget me when im gone
things just get away from you
