about

We’ve all got bad habits. Some of them aren’t such a big deal. There’s little consequence to forgetting to floss now and then, or cracking your knuckles when you get stressed out. Some of them are bigger, and less easily recognized in one’s self, like placing undue burdens on people, or not doing things you said you would do. From big to small, it matters that we attempt to identify our bad habits, and that we work on breaking them. Changing habits can be one way that we make progress as people. It can be an important way that we get better. This is a song about trying to break the big ones, and it’s hopefully a song about becoming a little bit better little by little.

lyrics

So long, I’m waving like you’re nothing
I’m gone and I won’t be back again
Dear God, did you ever carry something?
A weight to great to reach the end

One day I came upon a garden
So green like a creature all its own
My God, now so empty and discarded
You’d never recognize the bones

I swore I wouldn’t be afraid
I swore I’d trust in my own good
I’d take my burdens to my grave
I swore I’d do the best I could

I swore I wouldn’t be afraid
I swore I’d trust in my own good
I’d take my burdens to my grave
I swore I’d do the best I could

But everybody feels afraid
It’s hard to trust in your own good
Unloading burdens on the way
On weary shoulders where I could

Hold it ‘til you let go
Keep it cuz you said so
Love it like it’s your own
Leave it when it gets cold

It’s time to break the habit
One day I’ll be better than I am
One day we’re gonna solve the problem
We’re gonna hold it in our hand

Hold it ‘til you let go
Keep it cuz you said so
Love it like it’s your own
Leave it when it gets cold
