Intermission

It has been a while since I posted some Sleeping at last lyrics but when I read these today I was blown away. Beauty caputred in words, poetry expressing ways I've felt before. How could I not share when these words are so true, so encouraging and so telling us to keep on going. The Waiting time is worth it... the time in between until we reach our goal.


I'm so tired but I can't sleep
My mind is full but I can't speak
Among the dust of the hard-to-reach, I'm stuck
Right here somewhere between side a and side b

I could call it a compromise
Or just an intermission
Some kind of consolation prize
For the race I never finished

I want to turn these tired gears
I want to feel the follow-through
Some kind of equilibrium
Something to set my watch to

I'm here somewhere in between
Victory and a white flag
Caught in this purgatory dream, I'm stuck

But I want to set the record straight
I want to retrace my every step
If I could just rewind all the tapes
Then maybe I'd find my loose thread

Call it a compromise
Or just an intermission
Some kind of consolation prize
So close but never finished

I want to turn these tired gears
I want to feel the follow-through
Some kind of equilibrium
Something to set my watch to 

xoxo
