Until You Let Go

I walk the hunted path
with familiar steps ahead
maybe by morning
I’ll have seen the street
but I’ll never know

I run only when needed
and this makes you laugh
and somehow,
somehow
you make me wonder
but I’ll never know
and that’s alright

because you came to me
you came to me
needing nothing
seeing everything
being everything
you won’t know how
and you won’t know
how you fall
until you let go

I think maybe you’ll hurt
before you come back
but you know you can trust
and so you’ll come back
and that’s alright

because you came to me
you came to me
needing nothing
seeing everything
being everything
you won’t know how
and you won’t know
how you fall
until you let go
and that’s alright
trust me
let go

Alternative

eyes cast downward
you’ll never see the sky
how can you fly
with a fear of heights?
perennial heartbreak
won’t make you stronger
what doesn’t kill you just
makes life seem longer
painting pictures with your tears
you know it doesn’t have to be like this
write it
sing it
try just to be it
you’re only lost in your mind
you will be fine

Conscious (April 2007)

I haven’t seen this before
shared among common fields
I could almost feel myself move
asleep on the ground, twice already
patience awoke me with presence
well I should say friends
and open faces showed me something
I can’t be alone too long
I miss the smile the most
having said what was right
I turn away not to see the consequence
since it’s not horrendous
I feel faint
and must lie down again
