Fishing Around

© 2000 Laura Golden

 

 

What is this yearning and
what is this dreaming and
what is this churning around?
What is this longing and
what is this aching and
what is this turning around and around?

One part is cherishing
one part is questioning
and all of it spinning around.
What's all this testing and
what's all this trying and
what's all this fishing around and around?

Circles and orbits they seem to be mine
they have no beginning, no end.
No matter how long it's been dark in this place
it only takes one match
the light of one candle
I head for that moment again.
Lean in to that moment
break through to that moment
I'm wrapped in that moment again.

Is this a warning or
is this revealing or
am I just fooling around?
Do I make progress or
do I make more messes?
Wagons still circle around and around.

Am I too loyal or
am I too spoiled?
Somehow I'm still hangin' around,
Is it all metaphor?
It's prob'ly not either/or
Threads they get woven around and around.

Circles and orbits they seem to be mine
they have no beginning, no end.
No matter how long it's been dark in this place
it only takes one match
the light of one candle
I head for that moment again,
Lean in to that moment
break through to that moment
I'm wrapped in that moment again.
Reach for that moment
embrace that moment
hold on to that moment again.

Count on that moment
remember that moment
rise up in that moment again.

Sometimes there's courage
and sometimes there's flourishing
and sometimes there isn't a sound.
I don't care to hold regret
this story's not over yet,
get ready to start one more round and around.
