Song Description

A man reminisces on what makes a life worth living: memory, love, dreams, family, travel, relationships. It reminds us that we should appreciate what we have and to stay positive when life gets you down.

Story Behind the Song

Originally inspired by the poetry of Mary Oliver, it explores the importance of stories and how I see them somewhat like prayers you pass on or share at night.

Playlists this song is on:

Read yourself a story every night
Separate your wishes from the cold
Pull your father's collar real tight
Gather your belongings down this long and winding road

That's what makes a life a life
you lose everything that means anything (alright)
So keep your hands inside
And hang on to everything that means anything (real tight)

Don't trust the sun, or these waves - 'cause they'll tell you that you love her
Don't stop pen from touching page - one hot sentence, then another
No more indiscretions or disguise - the whirling conversations in your mind

It's funny how you kiss your letters - before they're sent out to the world
One more for good measure - some good luck at your door

Good fortune shines - got honey at the table
Come what might - these arms are fully able
To hold you tight - and wish away the storms inside (your mind)
