about

All the great books say you must crash and burn before you are ready for grace… a brutal requirement. Stubborn, we require tenderizing... Well then let's start at the end. A denouement appetizer.

lyrics

ALREADY THERE
copyright 2007 john common music

way back, before I can remember
everything was shut down on me
I was living like a goldfish
swimming in my circle
waiting for a hand to pick me out

save me for later
when I'm less sedated
good god help me good
I'm already there

I was so lonely, living like a shut in
watching all my windows shut down
I got the silent treatment
then I started screaming
oh god come dig me out

save me for later
when I'm less sedated
oh good god help me good
I'm already there

the window is cold on my cheek
I'm getting old, don't you think
god help me good
I'm already there

mary interceding on my behalf
I need you now
it's early morning
the birds in the trees
are singing
