  1. So It Goes

From the album Be Yourself

Lyrics

SO IT GOES
I’m a one person story teller singing this song right to you
There ain’t no one in between, so it all comes through
Right from my heart and into yours, on a voice a story floats
I can’t hold nothing back, it’s an open book, or so it goes
I could tell you that I love you or some pain I’ve felt before
Or the times my father met me coming in late through the back door
I could sing of times long ago
how the wind would roar and the dust would blow
And the people who barely made it through those

So it goes…

But what I really like to chime about
Is the way the world ticks and how it all might turn out
With all these people we got pitching in
And those who might come still and affect the world just with their will
And who will never give up and probably never will

So it goes…

So I watch the people and how they talk
just what they say in how they walk
Try to relay the humanity of it all
In the smallest part of the most average Joe and how his day takes him
And the parable that can be told if we look close

So it goes…

Or I could make it all up one word at a time
It’s even better in rhyme I’d rewrite the whole storyline
Everything’s going to be just fine

I’m a one woman story teller singing this song right to you
There ain’t no one in between, so it all comes through
Right from my heart and into yours, on a voice a story floats
I can’t hold nothing back, it’s an open book, or so it goes…

So it goes…
