Tom Rosenthal - Ian Lyrics

Oh Ian, the life the life
The dusty old books
Port on the carpet
The stains the stains

Oh Ian, the face the face
The sense of a lifetime
Snap of the old light
The room the room

Oh Ian I'll bring the old box
Where the quiet lies and the time died
Oh Ian I'll bring it all for you to see

Oh Ian, the words the words
Valiant moments
Sewed from the old hope
The life the life

  20. AbbeyGenevieve

    My precious kitty, Stewie, had to be put to sleep yesterday, and this song has gained so much meaning for me. I believe it's about reflecting on one's life and cherishing the good before things worsened. I bought this song and have been listening to it for hours straight. I absolutely love your heartfelt work, Tom.

    +Ericka Janes I totaly agree with that ! it makes you feel bad to procrastinate and you want to do something revolucionary (I don't know if we can say that haha, I'm french and I hope my english is too bad). You want to do something creative yes !
