Week 39: Wash over the world

A song to help me and hopefully others too, to find the time and space to sink into our feelings, and stir them up a bit and let them out. For whatever reason, I feel so much pressure not to feel what’s inside, to run into the thousand little things that we find to distract us every day, to stay focused on getting ahead, earning money, becoming something more to impress the world. But the only time I ever seem to find what I’m really looking for is when I turn inwards and go diving into my feelings. Enjoy.

Lyrics:
Turn up the evening don’t speak of leaving come listen I wrote you this song
All about dreaming and searching and feeling and crying for all that is gone
So tumble in to everything that gets you out and lets me in and reminds us of all that we are
Let’s shake these shadows lets fill the hollows with
Beautiful sorrows lets wallow in feelings
Bursting wide open and breaking through ceilings
Let’s open the floodgates and let it wash over the world

Some days I wake up I stare at my teacup and I’m aching and I don’t know why
It creeps through my life like a wolf in the moonlight howling away at the sky
I fade it out, I fade it in, I see it fall and rise again, a shadow on all that I see
And when it gets too much for me I let it win I set it free
With beautiful sorrows I wallow in feelings
Bursting wide open and breaking through ceilings
I open the floodgates and let it wash over the world

Sometimes I get so alone
like ET when he couldn’t phone home
Let’s ride our bikes through the sky
Up where the moon is, that’s where we’ll fly

Here comes the moonrise take off your disguise that only makes you more alone
Here in my garden all shame is pardoned and hardened ideas turn to foam
Let’s dive in the river that loves to deliver to those with the courage to swim
Let’s drift on emotion right down to the ocean
On beautiful sorrows let’s wallow in feelings
Bursting wide open and breaking through ceilings
Let’s open the floodgates and let it wash over the world
Let’s open the floodgates and let it wash over the world
