about

Notes: This is a song about understanding and embracing the trajectory of my life. Even amidst uncertainty and myriad recent trials, I can feel momentum building in the direction I must travel. I understand acutely that the most direct way to get where I'm going is merely to put one foot in front of the other. I don't perceive as many branching paths as I once imagined, and that's a comforting realization. I'm just going.

lyrics

I don't know what fate is
I just know which way it goes
Whether like the wind or like the wheel
(Who can say?)
Whether it turns or if it blows

I don't know what day it is
But I don't mind
I can follow the way ahead
And make good time

I don't know what God is
I don't really need God to be there
I have the Earth and that's big enough
To hold every last one of my cares

I don't know what day it is
But I don't mind
I can follow the way ahead
And make good time

I don't know what day it is
But I don't mind
I can follow the way ahead
And make good time
