AN UNCOMMON THOUGHT

"The real trick to life is not to be in the know, but to be in the mystery."

Sam Bush, "Circles Around Me"

We were riding down through the grapevines
When I heard someone say your name
Hand on my shoulder, just a little bit older now
And I remember everything

High in Telluride, up on Bridal Veil
Ten thousand feet above the sound
The news came around and sent me to count all my blessings
And to thank you for all the good friends that I’ve found

Hey, hey, hey
How in the world did we get this far
Hey, hey, hey
Holding tight to the tail of a shooting star
Hey, hey, hey, you’re running circles around me
Circles around me now

Now, was I dreaming
Or did this really happen
I could feel the earth below my feet
The world is turn fast and wild
I’m like a newborn baby child
Who’s never known regret or defeat

I am surrounded, tangled in the wire
Drawn up tight to the calling and the rising frequency
Of the silence, smiles, and laughter of those that came before
And the deafening sound of all this love falling down on me

Hey, hey, hey
How in the world did we get this far
Hey, hey, hey
Holding tight to the tail of a shooting star
Hey, hey, hey, you’re running circles around me
Circles around me now



For Jessica.  Thank You for a wonder-filled summer.
