lyrics

The Way It Is:
M.Hayden December 2010

When I move on through the mornings
Feel the sunshine, breathe the air
Whispered voices on the radio
Flecks of color in your hair

Hear some speak in tongues of angels
With no thought of giving alms
I could wait until tomorrow
I could take another chance

Thinking more about forgiveness
Thinking less of bitterness
moving shadows in the windows
distant memories of you there

Thinking more about tomorrow
thinking less of yesterday
I could be a new creation
I could be a better friend

Don't stop, telling us the way it is
Don't stop, giving this away
Don't stop telling us to raise our chins
And you'll the the gray countenances changed

Hearing more of metal music
Hearing less of country tunes
Born and bred this from the 80's
And funk and Soul and Delta Blues

Whispered promise in the morning
Finger's part as we forget
Hear each prayer for you is carried
On the breezes through your hair

Thinking more about the summer
Thinking less of winterness
Thinking more about forgiveness
Thinking less of bitterness
