about

A song I wrote and then nearly forgot about, leaving the lyric sheet stuck in one of many piles of paper that had doubled as bachelor furniture through the years. Re-discovered it during the recording process, found that it was a done song, and recorded it lickety-split with the band in one or two takes.

A song about being in the moment, among other things.

lyrics

Picked my time, dropped in my soul,
sought the light and took a stroll down here
on the Earth so dear.
"Have I blundered here?" I asked in fear,
wandering, wondering where's home?
Where is my home?

But bit by bit, I met myself,
reminded by everything else alive, they said
"Be, don't strive. You're alive, be don't strive."

The more I grasp, the less I hold,
a wisp of smoke, wet bar of soap,
that flow can't be controlled.
That flow won't be controlled.

Thought it was over the next hill,
but I found it first by standing still,
and I was home.
This is my home.
How I have grown into my own.
I have grown, and now I'm home.
My heart my own, my home.
