Head On

lyrics

Had the dream again this morning
Pictured just how it would be
Saw it moving in slow motion
Felt it rushing up to me

And suddenly it's happening
I can't seem to make myself believe
Clench my fists
Lose my grip
The world runs through to meet me head on


Happened quicker than expected
I blinked and thought it was gone
As if I'd imagined the whole thing
I'm not moving but the music's still going
The song is ringing in my head
I try to shake it once again
I find myself out in the rain
Looking for a friendly face

And suddenly it's happening
This isn't quite how I thought it would be
Clench my fists
Lose my grip
The world runs through to meet me head on

An inconvenience
Perhaps a mis-direction
Comes a time where the lines become blurred
Sometimes when you get what you want
You find out that the truth really hurts

If I try to remember
Nothing comes back to me
Like a thumb across the lens now
Six seconds seems an eternity

And suddenly it's happening
I can't seem to make myself believe
Clench my fists
Lose my grip
It's time for you to meet me head on

about

Letter Seventeen Norcross

Whimsical indie pop from a one-man band. Except when other people help. Which is quite often. So it's not like a one-man band at all.
Oh. And there are songs about donkeys.
