Song #47: More

"Believe you deserve everything you dream about." -Anon

This track is yet another change in pace - a sensual, haunting downtempo piece about receiving more than you can ask or imagine.

LYRICS:

is it too bold to say

my life has been changed

all from the way

that you have made me believe?

it makes no sense to pray

when something so great

something I can't explain

is more than this mind could conceive

 

is there more?

pick me off the floor

could I take any more?

i can't wait to see

 

what i see you see

when i breathe you breathe

when i take the lead

you melt right into me

could you tell me again

where i end, where you begin

and i can't believe

it's happening

 

is there more?

pick me off the floor

could I take any more?

i can't wait to see

Song #46: Whatever the Dream

"Life is just a funny dream,

and someday I'll share this dream with you..."

[Trey Anastasio, Ether Sunday

This week I had the pleasure of cowriting with friend/manager/bandmate Tom Crenshaw, reworking one of his poems into a psychadelic, George Harrison-esque song of hope, cycles and new beginnings.

*Painting by Marc Chagall

LYRICS:

I've been trying to find you,

trying to find you

You've been trying to find me,

trying to find me

All that I'm searching for - is searching for me

trust and we'll see

 

There's a season to come

a season to come

Rain, it follows the sun

follows the sun

Sunshine follows the rain, night into day

trust in this way

 

And if I had dreamed this differently

would it be any easier to believe?

 

Let whatever may come

whatever may come

Dream whatever the dream

whatever the dream

Close and yet far away, near as the end

to where we begin...

 

And if I had dreamed this differently

would it be any easier to believe?
