Rising

after all the noise there’s an empty space,
that’s the sweetest music that you’ll ever make,
take away the choices, there’s a quiet place,
that’s the only home I’ve found along the way,

so don’t mind me, I’m just blowin’ steam
I’ve got this worn-out dream, my little hill of beans
don’t mind me if I’m on the floor, I’ve been down before,
but you will see me rising..

there’s a cardboard lady in the liquor store,
and she says try some, she says buy some, boy, what you waitin’ for?
but you won’t find happy between the gin and schnapps,
and the velvet dress and all the rest are only props.. CHORUS

the roadside flower guy adjusts his wares,
a cigarette between his lips, another one behind his ear,
but no one’s buying his bouquets today,
‘cause any minute now, it’s gonna rain, rain, rain

don’t mind me, I’m just blowin’ steam
I’ve got this worn-out dream, bursting at the seams
don’t mind me if I’m on your floor, I’ve been down before,
but you will see me rising…
