Lyrics

Not I

Written By: Brian Mazzaferri

Everything you plant will die
The seasons all will pass you by
All your plans will go awry
So who’s afraid to live?
Not I…

Everyone you know will lie
Those you trust will make you cry
All hello’s end with goodbye
So who’s afraid to love?
Not I…

And I’ll let this go
Keep it to myself
If no one knows, I’ll be fine
But even so, it’s hard to walk that line…

Liars look you in the eye
You will fall before you fly
And no one here can tell you why
So who’s afraid to laugh?
Not I…

And I’ll let this go
Keep it to myself
If no one knows, I’ll be fine
But even so, it’s hard to walk that line…

Cuz everything you plant will die
The seasons all will pass you by
And no one here can tell you why
So who’s afraid to live?
Not I…

Pass Through

Written By: Brian Mazzaferri


Many years ago a fortune teller told me
"Son, we've got some work to do.
You're a classic case of chronic health;
No war to fight, no fortune to pursue.
Oh, the days they will grind
Ah, but you won't mind
You're just passing through."
I remember feeling anger then,
But sure enough,
Anger passes too.

Every now and then it strikes me
That everybody lives quite lightly
Dying day to day,
And giving all control away.
In everything we do,
We Pass Through.

Trembling hand up on the door, I wait
And catch my breath. Gather words to say,
Fight my fever and control my thoughts,
Just say my piece, then turn and walk away.
And if I never will know
All the truth I'm so afraid of?
Well in the end it seems to me that truth blends in to Life
And Life blends in to Love.

Every now and then it strikes me
That everybody lives quite lightly
Dying day to day,
And giving all control away.
In everything we do,
We Pass Through.

Every now and then it strikes me
That everybody takes life lightly
Dying day to day,
And giving all control away.
In everything we do,
We Pass Through.

With You

You say, “Look outside
Rain is pouring down
Let’s stay and hide.”

I say, “What the hell
We’ve got things to do
But we might as well
Stay and rebel.”

Maybe we will be everything we say
Maybe all that we dream will fade to gray
Either way, I will stay
With You

They say, “Pay your bills
Earn your daily bread
Take all your pills.”

We say, “Look around
At the heart of things
Share what you’ve found
Stand your ground.”

Maybe we will be everything we say
Maybe all that we dream will fade to gray
Either way, I will stay
With You
