Morningside

Even though music is my first and last love, I listen to so little while putting in 8 to 11-hour days at the computer headphones.  Silence wins out during these times.  But I am determined to do a little experiment to document anything that crosses my path to  lift my spirits while working 60-hour weeks.  So, here it is for today.  I believe messages are given to us when we need them.  I flipped on the radio to give my mind/ears a few minutes break and here’s what poured out.  A song written by John Gorka, sung by Bill Evans and Megan Lynch from their album:  Let’s Do Something.

 

Am I a fool at this late date
To heed a voice that says,
You can be great

I heard it young, now I hear it again
It says, you can be better than you’ve ever been

Chorus:
Don’t want to waste what I have to give
In all of the time that I’ve left to live
Don’t want to waste what I have to give
In any of the time that I’ve got left
I can do more than I thought I could
Work brings more luck than knocking on wood
There’s random bad and random good
Work brings more good luck

You ask the world
And the world says, no
It’s the world’s refrain
Mine says, go
You ask the world
And the world says, no
It’s an old world refrain
Mine says, go

Chorus:
Don’t want to waste what I have to give
In all of the time that I’ve left to live
Don’t want to waste what I have to give
In any of the time that I’ve got left
I can do more than I thought I could
Work brings more luck than knocking on wood
There’s random bad and random good
Work brings more good luck

Better be off
I’ve got dreams to dream
Though it seems uphill and a little extreme
If I can find hope in this fading light
Then I’ll find you on the morningside
