lyrics

if everything came crashing down
and i was left behind
i wouldn’t have to worry
cause i’ve found my peace of mind

i had to hack through hedges
that were so hopelessly high
i know i wouldn’t have made it
through that maze without the sky

cause thorns and tired ghosts and cages
had to bring me down
but it took something more than me
to find the sights and sounds

now, i don’t think i’ll stick around
for sickly sweetened times
they weren’t real, but i wanna be
so i’ll leave them behind

and i’ll find out what matters
find a bedrock love
find the things that move me
search despite the shoves

maybe you’re just dreaming
maybe deep in strife
but behind your eyes is something
sparkling with life

a song is such a lovely thing
created with great care
it takes the love of One who sings
and shares it through the air

i might have lonely nights
but they’ll be lined with silver hope
and i might have broken moments
but now i’ve got the love to know

it’s not about the feeling or
saying what you mean
it’s not really your story
cause you’re only in one scene

i’m a speck and you’re a trace
and no one’s anything
it’s wonderfully improbable
for you to hear me sing

and so you gotta find out what matters
find a bedrock love
find the things that move you
search despite the shoves

maybe you’re just dreaming
maybe deep in strife
but behind your eyes is something
sparkling with life


* * *


i’m a speck,
and you’re a trace
so where can we belong?

it’s okay
and it’s all right

we can all be songs.
