about

I need to pump my breaks. Rebecca and I are working on some really cool plans, and I'm excited. I think about it all day. But these plans are going to take a while to come to fruition. That's not just okay, it's a good thing. The future is a dazzling aspiration, but today is real and it's important. Yes, we're planning, but more importantly we're living. This is a song about holding at once the excitement of taking steps to make possibility into reality, and the gratitude I feel for where I am and what I have now.

lyrics

Every day I think about the future
It is something I can't help myself from doing
All the while my thoughts on the horizon
My buzzing heart don't seem to grasp the day I'm in

My sky is painted with desire
My ground it moves beneath my feet
The very air I breathe is dancing in my lungs
But I can wait 'cause I don't want to miss today

Every day the neighborhood gets restless
The beauty of its song can carry me aloft
All the while my feet caress the concrete
I whistle absent minded everywhere I go

My sky is painted with desire
My ground it moves beneath my feet
The very air I breathe is dancing in my lungs
But I can wait 'cause I don't want to miss today
