COUNTING THE WAYS
words and music © 2004, Kate Polsky
WE ARE COUNTING THE DAYS ‘TIL THE END OF THE YEAR, WE’VE BEEN
FINDING IT HARD TO WAIT WE ARE
COUNTING THE NUMBER OF TIMES WE HAVE LEFT TO GET IT RIGHT, WE ARE
COUNTING THE FRIENDS WE NOW HAVE IN OUR LIVES,
MAYBE A FEW REGRETS AND
GATHERED TOGETHER WE’RE LOOKING AROUND AND WE’RE
FINDING IT HARD TO SAY…GOODNIGHT
Looking ahead, I see endless summer
Looking back, another year to leave behind
What’s the rush? Wanting to get to the
“ Next Big Thing”, when there is
Right here, right now, only in this moment…
How do you say goodbye at the end of something so important
Even though you don’t know why, at least not yet
What if we are missing out by turning left instead of right?
What if we could flip a switch and do it all again?
What am I going to do with the rest of my life?
All I can think of is what I’ll do tomorrow…
