It's a lonely, truthful journey
finding your voice, with which to sing,
even worse, then there's the journey for your song;
but, we all sing from our essence
to share the truths each heart may bring,
so sing out loud, sing out clear, and sing out strong.
After a while, you may meet someone
who may fancy the same "life tune",
but, their performance of the song does not ring, true:
I can't emphasize enough, my friend
that we all live the songs we choose,
and that the melodies, and lyrics always falls on you.
That's why I sing the Blues these days,
and feel as lonely as the moon,
there's a certain honesty in reminding folks of pain;
and how next time it might be avoided
by adding "blue-notes" to the tune,
to draw attention, so it can't happen to us again.
Now, the other side of those "blue-notes
is a more joyful, hopeful tune,
to remind us that our hearts aren't always wrong;
it's merely "par for the course",
to sing of both sweet love, and pain...
..but, that's the blues.....and that's the, Journey of Your Song.
