Still Trying


It was a day not so long ago,
filled with hope that all could be turned to gold,
And money wasn’t the goal,
It was all just to shine bright and bold
But dull isn’t that far off some notes

I don’t know,
I don’t know, a god dam thing,
About the colors I’ve been playing in an attempt to sing
About the chords I’m mixing in an attempt to paint
I don’t know,
I don’t know, a god dam thing
except that gelato tastes better with you than alone
(I always look forward to getting some)
And I fade to the cut-scene
where in the back she’s singing over me,
Oh my love, it’s not painful to walk
while she cringes to every step
Since my innocence flew away from me
And the goddess still comes in faith,
That after all I’ll still dance for free

Yes it was an evening painted in gemstones
under the crystal sky where an orb of light shone
and although we didn’t have much
it gave just enough to afford some special comfort
Because the real value of something is in what you see

I don’t know,
I don’t know, a god dam thing,
About the words I’ve been taking in an attempt to groove
About the steps I’m penning in an attempt to commune
I don’t know,
I don’t know, a god dam thing
Other than gelato tasting better with you than alone
(With or without you I’ll look forward to getting some)

I held the weight of water in my throat,
Put it down don’t carry this any longer – the lungs are strong

I’m not well off, but i’m moving forward and that’s better than most
