music box

close your eyes

take a breath

listen close




start out quiet

whisper stories of once upon a time

get a little louder

speak of times you lost your way

shout now

tell me how you came out stronger

how you chose which path to take

i know you did good

i know you chose right

‘cause i’m you and you’re me

and we’re doing okay

keep on singing our song

this song winds us up like a music box

i can see the ballerina twirling to the tune

spinning in circles

winding energy keeps her turning and us moving

so keep singing friend and we’ll be alright
