lyrics

On an island, under a tree
Living life ostensibly
On the shore, cast in hand
Hoping for a bite to land

Staring outward, sun in sky
I wonder where I’ve ever been
I do better, but I want my best
I want it with me for every test

I cast away into the blue
Are you looking for me
Cause I’m looking for you
Feet in sand and ready to reel
It will take quite a while
To let you know how I feel

At a loss of words
For I’ve got too many
Can’t seem to find
The good in the plenty

Oh mind of mine, I’ve got to consider
The days I’ve had and the many winter
Don’t do yourself wrong when life’s already on it
You’re better than your circumstance, don’t ever forget that

It’s amazing the roads we can take to the same place
But so few do too many consider
There’s snow in your eyes and ice on your smile
Yet many have never seen a tree wither

So many times, we’ll reach a place
Without a thought of where from
You’re now unsure with a fitting face
Now I’m the only one

Even if I had all the time
I’m not sure I could explain
Why some things happen and happen again
What keeps coming to mind though,
Through all the paths they didn’t find
Is that it’s a long story anyway.

I guess the hurdles of complicated people
Are the simple things
And the hurdles of the simple
Are the complicated

I just wish I could reach in my pocket
Take out and open a scratched but loved locket
Which illuminates the situation, projects what I’ve found
A hologram of all the pages my book’s had bound

I guess there’s always another side
I just may not show what’s easy to hide
For me that is, I’ve kept it all in
You’re not weak, you’ve run yourself thin

Cast away, I’m off again
Looking for my long lost twin
When I find him, I’ll let you know
Or maybe he will, only time will show
