I Won't Get Lost eue
download or lyrics

promising to remain mindful

Deadlines and meetings, late nights at the office
Phone calls, endless lists, the next report to write
Nappies and mealtimes, homework and school plays
Another pair of outgrown shoes, another outgrown bike

I look for the forest in these trees
This endless searching feels like a disease
What am I afraid of? I don't know...

A Kindle full of bloody words, the latest terror movie hit
CNN news feed checking on the mobile phone
Romance novels, fairy tales, pornography and Tinder
The high of lust obscures the fact that I am still alone
Coffee and a morning donut, alcohol and cigarettes
Another midnight grab-it-quick greasy takeaway
Facebook and Flickr, YouTube and Instagram
The hours spent browsing, clicking, Amazon, eBay

I won't get lost! I promise I am coming home
I won't get lost! The universe sings in my bones
I won't get lost! I'll close my eyes, take a deep breath in
I won't get lost! The peace I want is there, within

. All I see is love, love, love, love, love within

What am I afraid of? There's nothing to fear
What am I afraid of? I can be here!


Row This Boat With Me eue
or lyrics

looking for real partnership in life...
