This song is inspired by dear friend Carol Porteous, who I was lucky to accompany on her passing away. These words sound like her late wisdom.


Life is short lemme tell ya
And I don't care if you are scared
Ain't no time to waste my darlin

You better keep on trying
To be

But freedom isn't a given
When so much harm has happened
There's a whole lotta mess we gotta clean up
It's strange to say but truth is hidden

And people are still trying
To breathe

So I am just trying
To see

But ain't no trying you get it
From birth to death is a minute
So get you a** in the moment

And we will rise trying
To catch up with infinity

So I won't keep on crying
For life slipping off everyone's hands

But I will keep on being
