keeping the dreams alive

never know – Jack Johnson

i heard this old story before
if people keep appealing for the metaphors
don’t leave much up to the imagination
so i wanna give this imagery back
but i know it just ain’t so easy like that
so, i turn the page and read the story again
and again and again
it just seems the same
with a different name
we’re breaking and rebuilding
and we’re growing
always guessing

never knowing
shocking but we’re nothing
we’re just moments
we’re clever but we’re clueless
we’re just human
amusing but confusing
we’re trying
but where is this all leading
we’ll never know

it all happened so much faster
than you could say disaster
wanna take a time lapse
and look at it backwards
from the last one
and maybe that’s just the answer
that we’re after but after all
we’re just a bubble in a boiling pot
just one breath in a chain of thought
the moments just combusting
feel certain but we’ll never never know
just seems the same
give it a different name
we’re begging and we’re needing
and we’re trying and we’re breathing

knock-knock on the door to door
tell ya that the metaphor is better than yours
and you can either sink or swim
things are looking pretty grim
if you don’t believe in what this one feeding
it’s got no feeling
so i read it again
and again and again
just seems the same
so many different names
our hearts are strong
our hands are weak
we’ll always be competing

never knowing
shocking but we’re nothing
we’re just moments
we’re clever but we’re clueless
we’re just human
amusing, confusing
but the truth is
all we got is questions
we’ll never know

 

 

people come and go, don’t they? I suppose I ought to get used to it. But, I am still not.
