strange beginning

from by Chuck Zak & the Oxford Boys



it was a strange beginning
to a day I expected to be strange
to begin with, it began with a broken mirror
I didn't hear her
when she said "something is bound to change"

it was a strange beginning
an uncommon hour
for a cloud or a flower
for the rage to overpower the restraint

it was a new beginning
and we approved until we found out what was new
to begin with, we were older than every captain
what just happened
is this the same bargain we agreed to?

it was a new beginning
a fresh coat of snow
over all the old roads
where they wait for the first steps we take
