about

A song about living in the slow present.

lyrics

how many things have I looked up
in a lifetime
of looking things up

a silent prayer just the moon on the road
I will never wake up
and play the piano

the days are stacked against what we think we are
it's nearly impossible
to surprise ourselves.

I've decided to make up my mind about nothing
I've decided to finish my life
disguised as a creek

I swam in the river and then I forgot
it was water. I'm just trying
to unlearn the Universe

how easy it glows, how easy it dims
the firefly, the night in your eyes
a billion years old

the unbearable flowering, falling of stars
her eye a kaleidoscope
of hail and farewell

we stopped at a traffic light, emptiness everywhere
every canyon aches
for its sky

sinks into my soul
just like honey
sinks into my soul
just like honey
sinks into my soul
just like honey
sinks into my soul
just like honey
