about

A song written and recorded on my 4 string tenor guitar.

lyrics

In the Meantime - February 8, 2013

She wears slight wrinkles in the corners of her eyes
Like yesterday's top fashion
You would never doubt that it was beautiful
You could read that in everyone's reaction
But it was just that it wasn't quite timeless
And none of us are.

CHORUS:
I know....
I can feel it in my bones
I know...
We all will get old
I know...
We are born and then we die
In the meantime...
There is me... and there is you.

The simplest equation, 1 + 1
Why do we complicate things?
Contemplate the details, would you change everything
If you knew then what you now do
It just didn't pan out the way I thought it would be
I guess it never does

BRIDGE:
I guess it isn't true
Facts and history we learned in school
The things we see on T.V.
Corrupt the way we think about love
The magazines we read
Distort our sense of beauty

ENDING:
I know...
Things don't always turn out how we plan
I know...
The mirror reminds me of time past
I know...
Life is to live before you die
And in the meantime...
There is me and you.
