Just a Path

lyrics

my disposition is a little homely
aint met a women yet who could comb me or mold me
even when I was nothing
but a rubbery substance in the palm of her hand
I don't wanna die alone
I just need some more time to roam
it aint good, it aint bad, it's just a path

I been loved and I been blessed
by the goodest and the best
in the present tense I'm appreciating
what i took for granted in the past
I messed up so many times
I'm beggin to see the light
and it aint good, it aint bad, it's just a path

nothing to live for but life itself
no pot to piss in, all is well
I'm learnin to love myself
after all what the hell
it aint good, it aint bad, it's just a path

the phoenix in my heart
keeps tearin my life apart
I stop drop and roll and roll and roll
but can't seem to slow the coals burning in my soul
I don't want to die alone
I just need some more time to roam
it aint good and it aint bad, it's just a path

Hi there. You can sign up for my mailing list here: eepurl.com/bcruFT

I post a song once a week on Tuesdays. If I've just finished a song I'll record a rough demo and put it up. Sometimes its live recordings or weird electro collages. I also make a video most weeks using public domain footage. Check it out!

Thanks for taking the time to check out my music!

Jon
