That Elusive Chord.

 

Chorus-

Gotta find that elusive chord 
umbilical or otherwise, 
head on back to my beginnings, 
claim the only worthy prize, 
embrace the love from far above 
that I've skewed by compromise. 
<>< 
The years have flown by 
like fireflies 
carrying torches I once bore, 
from dreams left ajar, 
on my wings denied, 
to places that I was meant for.... 
<>< 
That first gasp of air 
sucking innocent hope, 
that grew tainted 
as I got old, 
deep within my soul 
in my chest that holds 
all those dreams 
that I've left enclosed. 
<>< 
Life is a cycle, a circle, a ring, 
and it all comes back around, 
from pampers to diapers, 
lullabies to bagpipers, 
from the depths of a womb 
to the cold....cold ground. 
<>< 
It's what's in between 
I must keep serene, 
looking back without distractions, 
to that innocent dream, 
lost in endless schemes, 
chasing far less, worthy attractions. 
<>< 
I was granted a gift 
in my fetal curl, 
to turn words into paintings 
that color the world, 
to turn pain into songs 
not for money or fame, 
but to grant God the glory 
that might come to my name. 
<>< 
Gotta find that elusive chord 
umbilical or otherwise, 
head on back to my beginnings, 
claim the only worthy prize, 
embrace the love from far above 
that I've skewed by compromise. 
<>< 
Bridge- 
<>< 
This might be the last song I compose 
for selfish needs or greed, 
down that lonely path that I once chose, 
with no hopes that I'd succeed.... 
<>< 
Time to put it all in the master's hands 
find rebirth within his plans, 
then perhaps real soon I'll grace the stage 
and sing his works again. 
<>< 
Chorus- 
<>< 
Gotta find that elusive chord 
umbilical or otherwise, 
head on back to my beginnings, 
claim the only worthy prize, 
embrace the love from far above 
that I've skewed by compromise.
