it's the first song



hi.

it's the first song on a new tape
you swore you'd never turn over.

and i guess i'm a little desperate
to make sense of everything before you hit the play button.

i know you can't see me.

you can't see me here, watching the sun go down
on the first song.
and i write letters like you'll never see me again.

i was scared that someday i'd forget something important.

but here i am.

i know the secret.
it's in the first song on a new tape
the one i don't think you're ready to hear.

you were right, you know.

you don't always get back what you've given away.

hit the play button, please.
it's the first song on a new tape
and i have a feeling that it's going to be
good.

xx

good morning. God is good. it's today. tomorrow is a lifetime away. i am brimming with thanks.
