Long Way Round

Folder: 
2016

I took the long way round

cause I don’t want to forget

everything I’ve done today

everything we did

 

I took the long way round

cause I don’t want to let go

of the somethings and the everythings

we made and wished for and know

 

Fast and frisk, brisk and breathy

I show myself a way to live

Past the canyons and the valleys

and wondering what I have to give

 

Smooth and steady, gentle and slow

I capture how it feels to be alive and awake

Drawing lazy circles in a path of color,

sunlight gives life and the world takes

 

Running with the wind is exhilarating

but this sunset drive is a memory

Light and sweetness, peaceful endings

pouring through my eyes into me

 

I took the long way round

cause I don’t want to forget

everything I’ve done today

everything we did

 

I took the long way round

cause I don’t want to let go

of the somethings and the everythings

we made and wished for and know
