Years and Years is about things long hidden. It’s about war, how war affects lives and how lives are about so much more than survival. It’s about time and love and the loss of both.


How long has it been?
I wrote you a letter in 2010
In 03 we shook hands over the table at yours
Years and years and years, mmm

When will you know?
When interlaced fingers are forced to let go
When canons come calling from over that hill
Years and years and years, mmm
Years and years and years, mmm

Now canons are calling
The land lust of him draws a love lust from me
I fumble for as few words, that should fill you in
Years and years and years, mmm

To my dearest friend
You’re the best book I’m reading that teases no end
As certain as roses remind you of home
Years and years and years, mmm

I saw you in line
You fought for our freedom while I fought for time
How long will I wonder what you could have said?
Years and years and years, mmm
Years and years and years
Mmm, mmm, mmm, mmm
