i wrote a little song for the "grass is greener" collab.  this one is personal to me.  i might have cried a little while writing it.  it's very bare.  recorded on my phone, using voice memo as always.  i found inspiration in a beautiful text record by musing5225 called "The Journey".  please find it in the resources.  it is full of such gentle wisdom.


lyrics:


open up your eyes
take a deep breath
it takes strength to speak your truth
there’s a quiet voice below the noise


open up your eyes
take a deep breath
it takes courage to face your fears
here i go, here i go


“i hate when you do this to me”


so follow me through the trees
hear my call
let the world say what it will
and watch me fall
where the grass is green
where the grass is brown
it doesn't matter anyhow
when you are where
you can be who you are 


open up your eyes
take a deep breath
all the feelings you push away
are calling out for freedom


open up your eyes
take your first step
there are no guarantees
here i go, here i go


“i hate when you do this to me”


so follow me through the trees
hear my call
let the world say what it will
and watch me fall
where the grass is green
where the grass is brown
it doesn't matter anyhow
when you are where
you can be who you are


so the grass is green
so the grass is brown
it doesn’t matter anyhow
when you are where
you can be who you are

i wrote a tiny story awhile ago called "not myself" and it seems some folks could relate to it... and then Symbiote wrote another one recently that felt somehow connected.  sometimes i find myself so tangled up in other people's feelings & thoughts to the point where i really can't hear my own anymore.


again, this is just me and my iphone atop the piano so please do remember how rough this is... i hope the sentiment comes through...


Lyrics:


please excuse me if I'm not myself
i am tangled up in everybody else
and I am passing through you on the way to me
(i am just passing through you on the way to me) 


you don't know much about me or how my life has been
i know that you care about me but i just can't pretend
that all is well, all is fine
when i feel unhappy so much of the time
and i am passing through you on the way to me 
(i am just passing through on the way to me)

i challenged mr. joerud to write me a song to wake up to and the result was a time machine or a teleporter.  as i listen, i have one foot in one world and one in another.   


(i have zero skills with technology but i hope this still warms your hearts as it does mine)
