Putting Things in Order

“The Prodigal, having put his full force and effort into work and providing for his family, finds himself exhausted and feeling quite empty…

“I have traveled so much in my Life… It seems no matter what I have done as an occupation, travel was in the cards whether as a musician, CPA or teacher…  I have been to so many cities and places that they blur together… This song is one of the most relevant struggles of my Life as it captures how I really feel and what I experience when I come home… I am an introvert… It takes great Energy for me to travel and do events… It is important work to interact and hopefully help others…as well as myself in the process! But there is a price… And the price is ultimately worth it!”  


I push through the jam, of my front door
Of the long lost place, I call home
The lawn is, so overgrown
And there’s dust on, everything I own
 
A mailbox full, and the milk’s went bad
And the lights burned out, from neglect
And this disarray, it won’t stop my feet
‘Cause all I want, is my own bed
 
Can I put things in order?
Is there an order…for my Life (my friends)
And yes… in my confusion
In my delusions…Will my soul catch up?
 
There are bills to pay, and correspondence late
And too many things, that broke my plate
And in doing good, I forgot to breathe
Not forgetful, of my loved ones’ needs
 
My Life…is out of order
Is there an order…for my Life (my friends)
And yes… in my confusion
In my delusions…Will my soul catch up?
 
I rise in time, and greet the day
With my mind, still far away
Clear the counters, and I sweep the floor
Tighten the hinge, on that old door
 
In a short time, you know I’ll leave this peace
To resume my place…in the world
To repeat these scenes, as far as I see
And wonder why, I ever leave…
 
And I’ll…put things in order
Make my list shorter, give things their proper place
And yes…I’ll give You attention
In my reflection, I wonder why I ever leave?
