Track Name: Space and Place
Space and Place (Franklin, Mayes, Roberts)

Space and place subside,
and you know me well.
Streets of common ground
I remember, I remember

Space and grace subside,
and walls begin to melt
Safe forgotten sounds
I remember I remember

Don't make a sound,
when I'm breaking.
Well I'm trying
The same grey lines
Look at me
Waiting for their chance
Walk over the same steps
I'm making it up
Yeah I'm making it up
Think of when we last met
There's beauty

Here the concrete elevations
and the wire mesh canopies
Tell tales of possibility,
and shelter our memories
The dust has settled in
Suspended in mid air
Quietly refracting the tender summer glare
There's hope in your eyes as we buoyantly stride
From one street to another
Like a river in summer
Like the urbanite lovers we are

Space and place subside
and you know me well.
Streets of common ground
I remember, I remember
space and grace subside
and walls begin to melt
safe forgotten sounds
I remember I remember
