Many Things & Many Scenes

Feeling run down, feeling lost,
Feeling tired, like I can’t get across.
Feeling hungry, yeah, and a little unsure,
Then I hear your voice, and I hear your words.

Where did you come from?
Yeah, I wanna know.
Where are you going? Don’t go.
At least for a while, until you might see,
That right here is where you just,
Might want to be.

It’s pretty late for me to get off work.
Took a little longer than I thought it would,
Kinda felt like a jerk.
Oh, but you were waiting, up on the porch,
You had a fire, I had a torch...

So then started a little adventure, Oh I can see,
I’ll just hold my thoughts right now,
And let the future carry me.

And life is made up of,
Many things & many scenes,
Many Jack Daniels, Maker’s Marks,
Whiskey Gingers & Jim Beams.
Those elixirs, in life, cannot displace,
A simple smile, and a simple embrace.

Now as this song comes to an end,
Can’t wait to stare in your eyes,
And begin again.
