The Next Phase


I'm ready to move on 
When did things become so complex? 
I'm trying to pinpoint that moment 
There's many distractions 
When did I spin so far out? 
I'm trying to orbit that moment 
Nostalgic tremors every waking hour 
Fond pictures playing over and over 
To know who I am is all I wish for 

Fill my eyes with color 
Surround my ears with sound 
I'm a mirror reflecting melodies all around 
Art is where my heart is 
There's no time for petty games 
There's no time for shoestring tales 

I'm moving on 
What was I waiting for? 
Longing for the next phase 
I've gone forth, how could I not look back? 
My memories keep me young 
The tremors return now the time is ours 
My motion picture playing over and over 
To be a strong man is all I push for 

Fill my eyes with color 
Surround my ears with sound 
I'm a mirror reflecting melodies all around 
Art is where my heart is 
There's no time for petty games 
There's no time for shoestring tales
