PURE ENOUGH MAN

© 2001 Laura Golden

 

 

Dispel your suspicions, old suppositions be damned
just apparitions somebody traced in the sand
and a new game begins

So many doorways, double-bind sure weighs a ton
transition in more ways, feels like a lot more than one
when the weariness wins

Old enough, bold enough, tough enough, been told enough
cool enough, fool enough man
Had enough, bad enough, missed enough, mad enough
do enough, been through enough, blue enough man

It gets so confusing when you're just using the past
to navigate choosing, call in the heart's mind at last
let it all come to clear

Consider the chances these circumstances allow
when good fortune glances, it matters what's happening now --
is it you or your fear?

Slick enough, trick enough, bruised enough, quick enough
hide enough, inside enough man
Blame enough, shame enough, need enough, rename enough
wise enough, disguise enough man

Consider the chances these circumstances allow
when good fortune glances, it matters what's happening right now --
does the lightning strike here?

Can't learn enough, return enough, dance enough, discern enough
dream enough, redeem enough man
Mild enough, wild enough, lost enough, child enough
you're enough, sure enough, pure enough man

Learn a lot, return a lot, dance a lot, discern a lot
dream a lot, redeem a lot man
Mild enough, wild enough, lost enough, child enough
sure enough, you're enough, pure enough man
pure enough man
