something good could come your way,
would you miss it in the middle of your day?
something free, you didn’t pay for something good..

something light, won’t weigh you down,
something brighter than their shiny dimestore crowns,
but you might not know you’ve found something good,
+++ call it what you like, maybe it’s just superstition,
+++ nothing but a child’s ambition,
+++ you gave up on it long ago,
+++ is it even right to hope that in a world this broken
+++ we could find the smallest token?
+++ something better than we know?

something true is rare indeed,
something solid as the ground beneath your feet,
we want it all, when all we need is something good,
+++ call it what you like, maybe it’s all superstition,
+++ nothing but a child’s ambition,
+++ you gave up on it years ago,
+++ is it even right to hope that in a world this broken
+++ we could find the smallest token?
+++ closer than you’ll ever know..

something true is rare indeed,
something solid as the ground beneath your feet,
surrounding you, reminding me of something good,
we want it all, when all we need is something good…
