View Lyrics
I think the cold is alright
It turns up and turns tail again
The sun is out
I’m heading out again
But I’ll be back soon

I’m alone on my block
Folks are shut in
Guess that’s up to them
Folks are shut off
Picked apart again
But they’ll be back soon

Wait this moment out
Stand the test of time
Wait the weather out
Stand the test of time
Wait the hour out
Stand the test of time
Time

All the way to the ocean
Looking out at the open sky
Looking up as the clouds go by
And we’ll be there soon

Wait this moment out
Stand the test of time
Wait the weather out
Stand the test of time
Wait the hour out
Stand the test of time
Time

Notes
This week’s song is about patience. Many times in my life when I’ve faced a difficult moment, somebody has told me that it won’t be forever. That has always proven to be true one way or another.

Another thing that helps me is to recognize the complexity of the interiority of others. When the inside of my head gets a little bit loud, I quiet it by walking. While I’m walking, I look at all the windows of the apartments that line my block, and I try to remember that each holds a story as rich and unknowable as the last, and that every person in every window is living through something all their own. It’s beautiful and bewildering to count the stories hiding away on my block. It makes me feel like part of the human race.

The other thing that helps me out is to seek out nature, because nature is the best.
