lyrics

BENEATH THE SURFACE

Your watching the river
watching the tide
that’s when you discover
when suddenly you realize
just how blue the sky is
and you want to write it down
at least give it a try
because you want to tell about it
but it’s so hard to describe

and beneath the surface of all things
is where the next surface begins
luck it’s what you make it
it comes around
picking you up and putting you down

now I’m thinking about tomorrow
about a time
of pollen and ticking engines
and unrealized crimes
and how if you ever get a chance
if you ever manage to just cop a break
you know they’ll send somebody
to try and take it away

because beneath the surface of all things
is where the next surface begins
luck it’s what you make it
it comes and goes
picks you up and lay you low

and I’m in for the long ride
following that river
wherever it’s head
as long as I got all this music
flowing all round my head
and I’m an honest man
honest I am
I’m not a teacher a preacher
a poet a judge or a thief
Sometimes being nothing
is just sweet relief

because beneath the surface of all things
is where the next surface begins
luck it’s what you make it
the good the bad
but in here there is plenty of fun
there’s still plenty of fun
right here to be had
