I enjoyed spending much of the long weekend quite focused on songwriting, and uniquely engaged with what I was working on. I have to admit that the song I am presenting here today is not the song that I was focused on. That song is a special one that won't be ready for several weeks. Today, my weekly recording practice had to run on the leftover fumes that remained. Still, I think I pulled a pleasant little number out of my pocket. It's not one that I am particularly excited by, but it has a few turns that I genuinely enjoy, and I'm glad I wrote it. They can't all be my favorite, but this one gets by just fine.


I know it doesn't mean much
But the light seems better
Is it a parting in the clouds?
Is it a change in the weather?

Hey I don't mind wasting time
It's just fine with me

I know that I don't know much
But the moon seems brighter
And is it just in my mind
Or is your smile a little wider?

Hey I don't mind wasting time
It's just fine with me
