This Too Shall Pass

I heard the bird’s chirp
And the dog’s bark
I heard the rustling of the leaves
I heard the wind and the lawnmower
And the chatter of the trees
Oh plane overhead and chainsaw through the wood
With your distant calming hum
I leaned into the future
Then fell into the past
The monkey had me for a minute in his grasp
I heard my breathe
And let it all go

It Just Goes On

I don’t know what it’s like
I don’t know if it’s right away
I don’t know, it feels light
Someone to carry you home
Someone to make it ok
I’m so tired of being alone
Always lost in my way
And it just goes on
Yeah it just gets harder
Like that broken dream of your distant father
Yeah you married too young
You didn’t know what you find
Everyday is a waterworld
Every note is just right
And it just goes on
I know just what you’d say
Always taken a different road
You’re gonna find a new way
Something to put you at ease
Something to make it go away
I just wish you’d pick up the phone
I wanna hear what you’d say
And it just goes on
Yeah it just gets harder
Like the American dream of your founding fathers
Yeah you wanted it all
You didn’t know what you’d find
Everyday is a wonderwall
Every note it’s just life
And it just goes on and on and on
Like a movie calms ya down
And it all just turns around
And it Just goes on
Yeah you just get higher
Like a mountain stream and a lotus flower
Yeah you wanna stay young but it takes all this time
Everyday is a miracle
Every moments just right
And it just goes on read more

Surrender

Like morning dew on a pedal
Patiently waiting to slide
Like a tree falling in the forest
With no where else to hide
There is nothing left but surrender
Like a crow outside your window
Calling out your name
Like a drunk outside the bar
Deliriously insane
There is nothing left but surrender
Like summer turning into fall
Like rain dancing on top of it all
Like perfume at the local mall
There is nothing left but surrender
Like the sun rising in the morn
Like the stars in space ever born
Like your soul forever torn
There is nothing left but surrender read more
