“Darkness Between The Fireflies”

“Darkness Between The Fireflies”
Music byMason Jennings
I woke up before you in the total darkness
Early morning

I could hear the wind in the trees

I was looking for the light to bring you out

From the shadows
Redefine you now for only me
And honey i’m sure
That you’ve been in love before
Plenty of men have held high places in your eyes
And jealousy has got no use for me
The past is beautiful
Like the darkness between the fireflies
I was driving faster through the Appalachians
I could see the world go out below me in the sun
You should know by now
That someone’s always been there
Long before you
You’re never going to be the only one
And honey i’m sure
That you’ve been in love before
Plenty of men have held high places in your eyes
But jealousy has got no use for me
The past is beautiful
Like the darkness between the fireflies
Beautiful like the darkness between the fireflies

FireFlies

FireFliesTender twigs stretch for sunbeam
And bark to shed new leaves.
For the journey demands walking and this soul is tired of running.
Passing time;
Hours to falling upon meadow grass.
Mellow the months ahead
And may still streams steady
this worried mind of mine.

FireFly

Words of Advise While No One Is Looking

Is all of this writing really necessary?

Yep…
50 posts into a new journa,l I freely admit to the narcissism of vanity writing, but I need to say, it really helps me nail down some of what is floating through my head and give me a small sense of personal validation by way of giving time to my inner thoughts and personal inner life.

IMG_2288In the scheme of things, I’m a just a dad,
a friend,
a partner.
Everything else spins out of my head.

imagejpeg_2_70My time spent in the studio and time spent writing is time spent trying to connect with ideas and anyone beyond my own personal borders…
I’m not sure on the “how” or “why” of it all, but up until recently, I’ve lived inside a box of my own construction. Censoring my ideals, ideas, and ambitions to satisfy someone else’s needs of personal worth.
When any of us act this way, we are without a doubt, our own greatest limitation. IMG_052350 posts into this I want to say something to myself while no one is looking…

Let’s make these last few years counts.

Another Hard Lesson

The hardest thing I’ve had to learn over the course of this year is the value of stopping believing in someone that I love in order to force that person to learn to believe in themself. 

Unfortunately that someone was me….
