I wrote this song in the middle of Golden Gate Park on the first day of Spring 2014. It turned out to be sort of a letter to twenty somethings after learning some life lessons the hard way.


I'm sorry son, you can't carry everyone,
no the world isn't yours alone to bear.
And don't think for a moment you have that right,
the world is something to share.

Self righteous you, you just assume
that your strength outweighs the rest.
Well have some faith, you have no right
to wear another man's vest.

All by your lonesome in the city spring
trying to find your place in everything.

Don't be so proud, you speak too loud
and not every thought should be said.
And the world needn't know every song you sing
nor every thought in your head.

So take things slow and watch the river flow,
the way the ripples dance from your feet.
And revel in the fact you'll be the only one
to witness this lovely scene.

All by your lonesome in the city spring
trying to find your place in everything.

So strap on your boots, and nourish your roots
for we're only as good together as we're apart,
and the heart of the forest can only beat
when each tree plays its part.

When you're feeling down, I hope you hear the sound
of the blood pumping through your veins
and you feel your flesh crawl when the breeze blows in
before you slip in the grave.

All by your lonesome in the the city spring
trying to find your place in everything.
