Here lies someone who struggled to thrive
To create and survive but got swallowed up whole
Many late nights shattered dreams and decisions
Spent restlessly fighting the tide
Seeking new flavors to savor not bitter but sweet fresh and tasting of spice

Longing for the newness of life and the precious connection of love

Some have it easy some fight the storm
Not tasting grapes on the recline
Or in the dark corner of forgotten one-hit wonders
Porcelain angels dues paid

Longing for the newness of life
And the precious connection of love
Don’t ask for so much greedy soul
Life can’t always make you feel whole


from Beautiful Boot Leg - Live at Rick Walker's, released December 23, 2014
