I'm so glad I found time to record this song before going away for the long weekend with dear friends. I'm running on fumes and don't have enough left in the tank to properly reflect on this little tune. Maybe the lyrics come from the sense that our trajectory out of the pandemic has been stalling, but I just felt the need to write something encouraging that essentially boils down to "keep going". It's advice I plan to take.


I got a sunbeam on my shoulder
Across the void it came for me
One hundred million empty miles
And now its journey is complete

Hold on
Hold on
The destination is good

I've got a moon to cast a shadow
We used to go up there back when
We used to love to face the journey
Maybe we'll be like that again

Hold on
Hold on
The destination is good
