Daring Us To Make It Right
©J.C. Ashbaker 7/4/2020

Hanging around waiting, just like a curtain on the wall
Contemplating, the basic science of night fall
Immersed in shadows, silhouettes rising ten feet tall
My eyes are heavy, as my mind it just slips away
Looking forward, to the promise of a brand-new day

Peeking out the front door, there's always something new to see
Speaking of mixed metaphors, I see you , can you see me
I'll ~ tell you, it's just as clear as it could be
We're different with a difference, we're changing for a change
A limited edition, it's normal, but it's strange

--- Chorus ---
Two views from reality, the beginning & the end
One commonality for a stranger or a friend
One flash of lightning, challenging the dead of night
Like kindness daring us to make it right

--Solo Verse--

Beware of time, moving forward ain't like living in the past
Bear in mind, the answer's through the looking glass
It's been a long time, coming, but the time is here at last
Do us all a favor, help us if you can
Find it in your heart to understand

-Repeat Chorus-

I hope our eyes will open, in time to see the dawn
And our hearts, will fill with kindness from now on
