Listen to your life


How many days and nights?
Hour and minutes.
How many miles driven,
Words spoken.
Secrets whispered?
Judgments made.
Jokes told, savored and stored away?
Safe keeping.
How many fists flung high in the air?
Singing the words to our favorite songs?
Top of our lungs.
Weaving our lives.
Reminding us always,
It will be okay.

So…you open your heart to an old memory,
you close your eyes and you smile…

Don’t you feel it growin’, day by day
People gettin’ ready for the news
Some are happy, some are sad
Oh, we got to let the music play
Another lonely park, another sunday
Why is it life turns out that way?
Just when you think you got a good thing…
It seems to slip away
No, you can’t always get what you want
You can’t always get what you want
But if you try sometime
you just might find..
You get what you need.
And I’m searchin’ for a rainbow
And if the wind ever shows me where to go
You’ll be waitin’ at the end
Then I’ll know
I’ll say, “To Hell with that pot of gold”

Isn’t that the way these things go?
Well, lets forget all that…
I’ve overcome the blow, I’ve learned to take it well
I only wish my words could just convince myself
That it just wasn’t real but that’s not the way it feels

Take a good look at my face
You’ll see my smile looks out of place
If you look closer,
it’s easy to trace
The tracks of my tears.

…listen carefully to the sound
Of your loneliness
Like a heartbeat, drives you mad
In the stillness of remembering
What you had,
And what you lost
And what you had,
And what you lost

The only thing that stays the same
is that everything changes, everything changes.
And time marches on,
time marches on.

But it’s a great day to be alive!
I know the sun’s still shinin’
When I close my eyes…
There’s some hard times in the neighborhood
But why can’t everyday be just this good?

When all the dark clouds roll away
And the sun begins to shine
I see my freedom from across the way
And it comes right in on time
Well it shines so bright and it gives so much light
And it comes from the sky above
Makes me feel so free makes me feel like me
And lights my life with love
