lyrics

Here I am, the land inside
Between past and future, side by side
Things are so real, things are so grand
When you see true colors, there’s so much less bland

What keeps coming to, as a way to be
Is to play it on through
All the maps in the world won’t do you any good
If you can’t find your bearings

And as well things became much simpler
As you made your way up the tree of possibility
When you’re stuck at its base, branches galore
No wonder you feel glued to the floor

But as you climb things become clearer
Less branches to worry about
Less for foliage to hide
As the goal becomes more feasible
And less lost in your dreams
It feels hope is a light that flickers and gleams

Another tree I ought to take note of
Is the ever weeping willow
We all think it’s sad for it lets no one in
But when you’re inside there’s so much room
And so little wind

What it keeps covered up, it ought to share
And not keep hidden like some unknown hero in its lair
Spread your arms and let the whole world see
What’s only ever looked like misery

I feel when you’re present
Whole and so true
That there’s so little
That you can’t seem to do

On this mountain, this moment of now
Slopes of past and future all around
Trying to have me roll all the way down
Letting me know what this peak took to have found

Things are so much simpler
My dreams feels like they’ll be there when I awake
Problems are problems but they’re much less obscene
And I don’t give myself the option to blow them up
As nothing more than hot air of worry
That grew a small problem into a flurry

I’m sick of the past as I’ve been there, done that
Don’t want to spend my hours worrying how long things will last
Learn what can be learned and leave it be
Why stay crawled up in the footnotes of your history?

As far as the future, as far as I’ll be
Try to go where I’m headed, try to reach what I see
As for anything that comes in my way
I’ll just play it on through, day after day
