Sounds of the Day

I really want to know
The reasons why we can’t be kind
Really want to know
What’s on your mind

It’s hard for me to see
The way things now have come to be
Needs to be a way
To make things right

And oh, can you feel the wind blow?
As it moves across and beckons to your call
And if you listen closely
You can hear its humble voice
It guides you to the meaning of it all

Got to get away
We always search for something new
Hopefully we find out
What is right

Many, many days
Our memories follow us so far
As we look inside
The pages we will write

And oh, can you feel the rain fall?
As it glistens on the shore across the bay
And if you listen closely
You can hear its piercing voice
It tells you what to do throughout the day

Wondering what to do
Should I just wait or should I act
Just want to do the thing
That will be right

Feeling so alone
Our thoughts they echo in our minds
As we battle with them deep into the night

And oh, can you hear the birds sing?
As they summon every song they have to draw
And if you listen closely
You can hear their mellow voice
It leads you to the path beyond the door

Another day begins
The questions seem to be the same
Can I get beyond
All of the blame?

Trying to decide
It’s never easy to conclude
As we push ourselves
Much deeper in the game

And oh, can you see the sunrise?
As it reaches out and brightens up your face
And if you follow closely
It will lighten up your path
It helps you find the things you should embrace

Oh, can you feel the wind blow?
Oh, can you feel the rain fall?
Oh, can you hear the birds sing?
…can you see the sunrise?

At all
