    WATCH Gatekeeper Live @ In The Woods 'Barn Sessions' 2012

    Gatekeeper, where there’s no wise leader there be no brighter lighter
    But you keep letting it in
    Gatekeeper, here is your read-minder, there is a kinder teacher
    But will you let ‘em in?


    Gatekeeper, there be no rhyme reason
    Hopeful the right season comes so we can begin again
    To begin again, we begin again and again
    Gatekeeper, surely a strange kinder helper to come later
    But that’s not the journey’s ending
    Just and ending, just an ending but not the journey’s end

    Like a city without a wall you are open to anything
    Lose the government of your soul ‘cos you’re so open to everything
    Well, don’t go listening to the voice of a stranger
    Don’t you go listening to that voice!

    Like a city without a wall you are open to everything
    See you flirting in the danger zone trying to be all things to all men
    Won’t you take your stand when you get hurt?
    Never learn your lesson when you feel it burn?
    Fired up? It should get you fired up!
    Still it’s aching? Fire up!
    Got to get to you - get fired on all cylinders, yeah! should be a kinder teacher to me
    But will you let me in? No.
    Will you let me in? No.

    Don’t fade away
    You don’t have to fade away
    Why you gonna have to fade away?
    You don’t have to fade away
    That’s not how the story was supposed to end
    Let’s begin again, let’s start again
    You don’t have to fade away...
