Some actual sunshine got me out in the garden this morning with me axe.
30 minutes later I was singing this.
It’s the shortest thing I’ve ever written. Maybe it’ll end up as the intro to something else?
I’d love to hear what you think
Just around the corner.
There’ll be better days
We’ll be sipping on shampoo
And slurping on oysters
You mark my words
And the sun will rise on our smiling faces
Every single day
And the songs that we sing will be full of joy
And the tunes that we choose will be stolen from the birds.
Don’t weep for what you’ve done
But don’t inure yourself to sorrow
Your duties to tomorrow and
We can still respect your past.
But what you are is all you hold
And all you are is holding on
To the simple joy of being alive
And living every day
To the sharing out of all you feel
And finally the giving it away
