Lyrics:

Collieston



I drove all day to a seacoast town
Where the green fields roll and drop straight down
Where the seagull calls
Over old stone walls
And the kids chatter over the wind

But the tale I tell can only say so much
Palette and brush portray so much
About the moment you start
To feel the weight in your heart
Lift like the mist in the morning

Thought I knew, thought I knew love
Tell me what little boys are made of

At the end of the road at the top of the hill
The whisky flows and the dance floor fills
The drummer grabs a pint
He's feeling good tonight
He's wailing, yeah and we're sailing

Same moon, same stars,
Wherever you go, whoever you are

The highland sky at closing time
Has already begun to faintly shine
And the little trees reach toward eternity
Like moon beams in reverse
Like heaven on earth

Thought I knew, thought I knew love
Tell me what little boys are made of
