about

Hello friends, and welcome back to Monday. The sky outside my window is gray. All weekend long I listened to the wind banging the trees together and shaking little pieces of my house around. It was a blustery cacophony. It was like the world outside was restless. Inside my head something similar was going on. We’re nearing the end of one season and the start of another. It is a reflective time. But this isn’t really one of those season songs that I like to write (re: last week among others), although the world is indeed coming out of the dark in quite a literal sense. This is a song about feeling some darkness inside and pushing away from it. It’s about interpreting your thoughts in many different ways and choosing what your own truth is. It’s about routine and cycle. Every time I say “you” in this song I really mean me unless this song is about you too in which case “you” means you.

lyrics

What’s new that you could ever learn?
Round about that corner
That you drive to
Every single day

It gets to you
The knowledge you have earned
The things that still escape you
You rely on
In every little way

You wonder
You will wonder just whose side you’re on

You’ve earned it
You have earned the light your burdens rest upon

What’s the use?
The language you have learned
Is filled with half truths
Early morning
Bless this island
Bless this season
Tear your love away

It gets to you
The knowledge you have earned
Is up against you
Early warning
Goodness gracious
Woke this morning feeling like a stray

You wonder
You will wonder just whose side you’re on

You’ve earned it
You have earned the light your burdens rest upon
