about

I wrote this song, rewrote it, then rewrote it again. Blammo! Evolution. Go ask the frogs.

lyrics

EVOLUTION

trees tremble in the breeze
while I stand divided
i breathe
in melody
but I need
the moment
to be decided

cause I’ll wait
for the day
when I’ll be
when I’ll be great
according to some standard
i didn’t initiate
but I wait
i wait
i wait

sense flown
confidence blown
surprisingly shown
i linger
the girl in me
waits unabashedly
but the woman
no the woman
no the woman
no the woman
she don’t want
to be here

yet she’ll wait
for the day
when she’ll be great
according to some standard
she didn’t initiate
she’ll wait
she’ll wait
she’ll wait

for something to touch me
like rain falling on a spring leaf
nourishment so deep
i can feel it in my bones
i can feel it in the soles of my feet

the wind is
lapping at the sea
inviting you and me and you and me and you under
oh we inhale eternity
we don’t even pause to wonder

or wait
for the day
when we’ll be great
according to these standards
we didn’t initiate
will we wait
will we wait
we won’t wait

i can’t wait
i won’t wait
i can’t wait
please don’t wait
you won’t wait
please don’t wait
we won’t wait
we won’t wait
we won’t wait
