Something Dull That Must Be Abandoned

lyrics

please forgive me don't forget me
always worry, don't you let me
keep on breathing, keep on thinking
always writing, always singing
heavy burden, make it smaller
chin up, back straight, walking taller!

This is the dream of the frightened, the scared, the scolded, the badgered, the sad, the unprepared. Not a book or a bird or a gem that is rare, but something dull that must be abandoned.

looking inward, light is beaming
only sleeping, never dreaming
let the season pass you by
let the knots become untied
you might fear you're left behind
had to be cruel to be kind.

This is the dream of the frightened, the scared, the scolded, the badgered, the sad, the unprepared. Not a book or a bird or a gem that is rare, but something dull that must be abandoned.

keep on breathing, keep on thinking
always writing, always singing

keep on breathing, keep on thinking
always writing, always singing

keep on breathing, keep on thinking
always writing, always singing

something dull that must be abandoned
