Story

"Late Bloomer"... Every year I get the little Zen desk calendar because it keeps me thinking. I stick the pages I really like on a corkboard so I don't forget them. I fashioned this song by starting each verse with a line from some of my favorites, then I stuck in my own thoughts to glue them together.

Lyrics

Late Bloomer 1. Eternity's a scary thought, where's it going to end? Standin' by the road with the baggage I bought, now I've damn few friends To help me take it down the line So I'm thinkin' about leavin' it all behind, for someone else to find I'll let the four winds blow me around That way I'll be heaven bound someday 2. When elephants fight, they say it's the grass that suffers It rained on my parade last night, but I will recover 'Cuse trouble disappears like dew, When the morning sun shines through, and I'm with you Like the beauty that returns in spring I'll come back as a funky king someday Chorus... It ain't always the first horse out the gate Standin' with the roses in the sun A flower's no less beautiful blooming late And who can tell the seasons when they're done? 3. A flower falls though you love it, a weed grows though you don't I can wear your love like an old jacket, Keep me from the rain it won't Oh but it'll keep me warm inside, as through this windy world I ride You help me take it in stride We can't change the world I guess But we just might find happiness someday (Chorus) 4. Behind every jewel there's three thousand sweating horses Shooting for the moon, pooling their resources I've been shining my stuff, but I'm still just a diamond in the rough, not quite shiny enough Some facets are unclear but I'll hang a beautiful chandelier someday (Solo) Eternity's a scary thought, where's it going to end...
