Song Description

Advice I would give my now 6 year old granddaughter when she is 19.

Lyrics

On a windy afternoon
I sit in my leather chair
Staring at the dusky light
That never got quite clear

Writing you this letter?s
An old fashioned thing to do
But I?ve got ten more years
To get this message to you

This one blank page brings
The dreams I?m trying to make
The memories that still haunt me
Decisions and mistakes

This one blank page is
The wall I?m trying to climb
The steps that I am taking
The path I?m trying to find

If my entire life
Could be written on one page
Distilled to its essence
Caught in a single phrase

I?d write of simple moments
When I sit outside my door
The sparkling sky my ceiling
The growing grass my floor

This one blank page brings
The dreams I?m trying to make
The memories that still haunt me
Decisions and mistakes

This one blank page is
The wall I?m trying to climb
The steps that I am taking
The path I?m trying to find

I?d write of how I thought
The world lacks compassion
Injustice running rampant
Much cause for condemnation

Then in a broken mirror
I caught my own reflection
I saw it was also me
Who needed transformation

This one blank page brings
The dreams I?m trying to make
The memories that still haunt me
Decisions and mistakes

This one blank page is
The wall I?m trying to climb
The steps that I am taking
The path I?m trying to find

Remember the simple story
Of the man from Nazareth
We change the world for good
If we?d only change ourselves

When you?re a young woman
And making all your plans
Don?t lose yourself and others
In the rush of life?s demands

This one blank page brings
The dreams I?m trying to make
The memories that still haunt me
Decisions and mistakes

This one blank page is
The wall I?m trying to climb
The steps that I am taking
The path I?m trying to find
