Notes: I'm feeling a bit lighter this week. We're (kind of sort of mostly) moved into our new house, and I'm able to start imagining beyond the hard work and frustration that has characterized this summer for me. Looking at a new horizon can be a little disorienting when the effort to reach the current milestone has been so all-consuming. I've been holding onto some of my frustration past its usefulness and relevance. This is a song about letting go of all that. I also played a little guitar solo, which always feels good.


Wake up feeling strange
But it's a good day
Gonna set down a couple of burdens
Then I'm gonna walk away

Looking back later on
I'll ask what all that fuss was for
It's funny when something that always made you lose sleep
Just suddenly don't anymore

Figure it out
You're moving on either way
Ain't that the simple truth

Always making a big deal of something
Always making a big deal of nothing
Always making a big deal
Then figuring out things always up and change

Figure it out
You're moving on either way
Ain't that the simple truth
