Holding On To Nothing

  • After holding on to nothing for awhile
    I glanced to see what waited there
    A shadow leaning easy by a window
    A scent of something recent in the air

    Nothing runs faster than time at night
    But time slows down every day
    All those hours with nothing to do
    Holding nothing again today

    Sunny days can fool you
    They can look wet with rain
    And even words from a friend can bring back
    The pain

    Memories come back on their own
    Birds fly south in the sky
    Pictures are drawn pencil sketches at dawn
    Wishes that I too could fly

    Sunny days can fool you
    They can look wet with rain
    And even words from a friend can bring back
    The pain

    All the pictures I see are smiling at me
    But today I'm somebody new
    Not really knowing just coming and going
    A stranger just passing through Writer/s: DAVID CROSBY, STERLING PRICE
