spilling forward

Written By: raybo

SPILLING FORWARD

and i'm pretty sure you feel the same
wherever you are
slave to be so free
so should we go down to the bar
they'll send a helicopter ambulance
to happenstance

who wouldn't love to hear your voice tonight
wherever you are
smiling through the phone
hitting me up for a dime
instead of loosening the edges to
the old brown pane
his hurricane

i can't abide another tide of tragedy exposed
another angel jarred and pinned
the heavy book left closed
who can account for all that's waisted on
the nearly missed
the scientist

everything i ever wanted just occurred to me
ripening on the vine
so swelling and sublime
i never had to worry about another day
things are going to be ok
love is somewhere

i spent 15 years
getting high on life
when life was a weed
growing on some astral plain
then at half my life
pulling hard to the earth
shaped by what i lived through
in the ever pouring rain

but a boy grows weary
like a girl goes crazy
growing fat dumb and lazy
watching winter rolling in
you jump a little higher
if you're running when you try
to realize
the spilling forward
in the beauty of your skin

then the weed got strong
tangled roots were growing long
searching for something
to cling onto
inside this spinning stone
all to find is one another
nestled in this cosmic bundle
with a luscious harvest coming
on the golden wings of dawn

but a man gets dizzy
while a woman gets busy
having everything to do
doing everything she can
you jump a little higher
if you're running when you try
to realize
the spilling forward
in the beauty of your skin

were it not for the story in your eyes
looking for a happy ending here in mine
you'd find all you need
in the flower of a weed
in the gentle spilling forward
in the beauty of your skin
