It’s hard to stop Its hard to stop
Wanting things to be different then the way they are
Its hard to stop Its hard to stop
Wanting things I ain’t got
Thinking about you
wondering if you’re ok
Wanting to press my heart against yours in a crowded room
in the red light of a song
AH the red light of a song
Its hard to stop its hard to stop
Wanting things I aint got
Wanting the ones I love who have flown from this place
Never to return in the same way
Wanting them back here right now to be here with me
to walk into he next phase the promise of the good phase
Its hard to stop
curiosity and grief knocking at my head
will I get a chance to shine my brightest beyond my bed?
Wondering at every light in the city that stays on all night
while i’m watching and waiting For a reason to stop
Wondering if every light ....
that stays on in the city is for
waiting for someone to come back - come home - come back
Asking the questions
Questioning the questions
Wanting the world back
when I really dont want it back the way it was at all
Wanting the glimpses of what ive seen
of our highest loving human possibility
to be the most regular and natural thing
The most regular and natural thing
Its hard to stop x 2
Curiosity and grief - - knocking on my head
Its hard to stop
When I know the beauty of what we could be
Loving kindness - Accountability
Being in awe
Living in the wonder
My heart from hardening
My soul from crying
Remembering my dreams
Forgetting my dreams
Wondering if your okay
Wondering if you finally found someone who see’s you at last
Loving this human life
Wanting to help heal this sweet world
Seeing you in the eyes of strangers
Loving you
