began

I want to see your body move
In the ways of the ocean
Pulled by the moon
Back to where we began

song.land—began

We venture into another song.land, a meaningless meandering through my verbose thoughts set to improvisational music.

If you listen, thank you! If not, spend the 20 minutes you would listening to this in a healthy way—let a plant grow, reassure someone of your love for them because you matter and they matter, too, and/or eat an apple and consume the seeds for their healthy bacteria.

Falling
So far from
The place you call your home

Nearly
Find a mystery
You do know your own

Someone
Never
Let it go for you

Someone
Never
Have what you did need

They were not there with you
Finding all the things wrong with you
And they were not there with you
Finding all, finding all

2:30

But their solace came on trains from the south
In distorted perspectives

When I thought that reality was a construct of their heart

You and I
Know better now
We know better now
We know better now

You and me
We know better now
We know better now

I want to see your body move
In the ways of the ocean
Pulled by the moon
Back to where we began
Where we began

Pulled by the moon
Into the sea
Where we began
Where we began

Ooh, where we began
Where we began

Repeats

And life calls to you from higher places

Don’t let it all go to waste
Don’t let it all go to waste

6:00

‘Cause when we fall apart
We fall so hard

Don’t let your self-sabotage lead you astray
What do you want?

7:30

What do you want?
What do you want?

In your life, in love
In all relationships
What do you want?

In my loneliness
I seek to be found out

And in my loneliness
I need to be found out
I need to be found out
I need to be found out

9:30

And life was all, falling all to pieces
The light was so much more
If you could look beyond a day’s pain
What can you be grateful for?
In the midst of so much pain?

What can you be grateful for
In the midst of so much pain?

11:10

Riptides pull us down into the darkness of the water
And of the night
I can’t see anything

Riptides pull me down into the water
Into the sea

I see the jellyfish flapping toward me

Oh my life, what are you leaving me with now?
Me with now?

12:10

I sing a song with chords
And love is lost

Oh

13:45

I sing this song to you so that you can see that love has something left to give
Even if it’s temporary
The short-term admonition to your soul

I’m all on fire for you
I’m all on fire for you
I’m all on fire for you

16:00

I know the basket of pears that you left at my doorstep
Guide me on

Like Greek mythology
Is there some chase that I must find out?

Like all the fears I felt
All the years I felt
I’ll find out

Like you with your shirt tucked in
Walking around again
You are so unbelievable

I can’t believe that fate has brought us here
It’s hard to see how it’s all so clear

Can I impress with my skills
Like a peacock searching for
Validation?
Oh, what a search it has raught

One, four, five six (this is wrong)
Six, four, one, five (this is right)

18:55

And I know life is all you need
Never looking beyond the seas
Where you planted all that you gave

We have something special
When we met together
Talking and walking and sharing each other
And knowing and looking and finding and seeing

And all I gave up was substantial to me
And all I gave up was substantial to me

20:00

Love
(laugh at ending)
