Day 170~ Boy & Bear “Part-Time Believer”

I had these bouts of crankiness and doubt this weekend. I don’t know what triggered them, just silly  little things, but every time I was driving, under the influence of this doubt and worry, the one lyric “I hope you know how lucky you are” would jump out at me from this song and bring me back to where I should be, in gratitude and love. It was my  theme song throughout the weekend.

Boy & Bear is new to me and I love. They are good for you, musical therapy.

Here are the lyrics

We’ve run out of reasons
Losing sight of what it’s supposed to be
A part time believer to truth
Somehow conceded
This sense of self evasive solitude
It means way too much to me

And I hope you know how lucky you are
Oh, I remember sitting back on my balcony
I was a-listening to the Rolling Stones
See I was waiting for my dad to come home from work
So I could show him all the chords that I’ve learned
See I was under the impression I was gonna lead
Some kind of simple understated life
But now I’m living in the shadows of a memory
And I hope so, man I hope so, oh oh oh

It’s been way too long
It seems that I can celebrate my meaning
For I am too young, too warm
The fib while it leans
It pulls and it pushes me
Till I wither, till I wither, till I wither

And I hope you know how lucky you are
Oh, I remember sitting back on my balcony
I was a-listening to the Rolling Stones
See I was waiting for my dad to come home from work
So I could show him all the chords that I’ve learned
See I was under the impression I was gonna lead
Some kind of simple understated life
But now I’m living in the shadows of a memory
And I hope so, man I hope so, oh oh oh

No, you dare
You run like a lion to defend your senses
Even though it seems it cuts to the core
It’s not the same my friend no more
Oh no, oh

See I was waiting for my dad to come home from work
