about

Written for Wild Bob's Musical Book Club on June 17th, 2014. WMBC gathers local songwriters to each write a song about a book of the month.

lyrics

I wonder about time travel
about living my life in a line
the arc of my intention
the contour of my time

I wonder about my wandering
and who I shall meet only once
I could move backwards towards them
I don't have to go forward running
------
Billy, I'm so sorry
Echolalia & tears
Billy, I'm so sorry
I don't know what happened to your years
------
Living can be lonely
you've only got your line
you follow it with vigor
and sweetly, briefly, criss-cross sometimes

There are many lives unfolding
and nothing is left undone
a ladybug in the amber
a planet in the sunshine
------
Billy, I'm so sorry
Echolalia & tears
Billy, I'm so sorry
I don't know what happened to your years
