This is a new recording of a song originally included in the 2010 "Not Before My Time" compilation.


When the shackles fall and I run free
I'll circle back to where I used to be
And I'll find you in your darkest corner

And I'll clear away all the dirt and dust
And find the shine in all that's turned to rust
Like it was when we were first together

And you won't see me there
But you'll feel a stir
In the morning air
That's just me, saying everything's all right
But not before my time

And when I leave this place for paradise
After we've said our goodbyes
I'll hold you when you're dreaming

And you won't see me there
But you'll feel a stir
In the evening air
That's just me, saying everything is fine
But not before my time
