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?
