about

This song was written in the first half of 2013, a statement about the simplicity of true happiness, and its dependence on state of mind, versus material things or monetary achievement. Highs and lows continue, but balance is key to the reward of life.

lyrics

They say if you keep reaching high
You may touch a star one night
I did just that before it slipped away
For an hour or so it changed my life
I sang my song forgot my strife
But a buzz like that never ever stays

I bought my ticket into dreamland
Almost had my hopes in hand
The hourglass ran clear of sand
And I was left a smarter man
I touched the ground and heard a bluebird's whistle
I found my smile somewhere in the middle

I lost my flow and fell so low
I was crawling on the floor
Had to ask directions to get back on my feet
So I took a cab, a day at rehab
Covered the wound and picked the scab
Never again will my song lose its beat

I bought my ticket into dreamland
Almost had my hopes in hand
The hourglass ran clear of sand
And I was left a smarter man
I touched the ground and heard a bluebird's whistle
I found my smile somewhere in the middle

I bought my ticket into dreamland
Almost had my hopes in hand
The hourglass ran clear of sand
And I was left a smarter man
I touched the ground and heard a bluebird's whistle
I buried my money cause all them bankers swindle
I needed a map cause I was lost in the thistle
But I was smiling big somewhere in the middle
