worksong…

In my community we talk about our “work” which loosely translated amounts to whatever issues we have at any given moment. It’s about seeing what’s “mine” and what’s “not mine.” It’s a part of the language, it’s a piece of the conversation.

One phrase I toss out a lot in response to “I don’t know” is “well, what if you DID know…”

So in light of that and also having witnessed some hard stuff a friend is battling I wrote this set of lyrics yesterday.

Liking it a lot. Once I get a decent home recording thing set up I’ll post snippets of some demos.

Worksong

Don’t like to be alone
But don’t like feeling crowded
So there’s a telephone
On the bedside
And don’t like over loud
But don’t want over quiet
So where’s the middle ground
I don’t know

And if I did know
I’d write a novel
And if I did know
I’d write a song
Empty my pockets
On the table
I take the yoyo
You take the breakdown

Don’t want to take my time
Don’t want to hurry either
So there’s another dime
On the floor
And don’t like over head
But don’t want over heady
So where’s the middle ground
I don’t know

And if I did know
I’d write a novel
And if I did know
I’d say a prayer
Empty my pockets
On the table
I take the bible
You take the breakdown

And if I did know
I’d write a novel
And if I did know
I sing this song
Empty my pockets
On the table
I take the playtime
You take the breakdown
