View Lyrics

I hope that people change
I could drive across the land
I will sing the snow to earth
I will climb until I can’t

Run into the woods
Find me something good

Please remember me as kind
Please let go of your mistake
See the river lost in time
See the morning as it breaks

Run into the woods
Find me something good

I once forgot
The view from this old spot

Notes
Last week I was digging around in my parents’ basement with my sister-in-law, looking for a set of horseshoes left over from my wedding so we could set it up in the yard. For some reason, in the box with the horseshoes I found an old journal I had been keeping nine years ago. Casually flipping through it, I found some of my old thoughts and perspectives to be amusing, others to be interesting, and others still to be sort of melancholy. I got a bit nostalgic, so I plucked around on my guitar and put some of those old thoughts to music.
