It Means Everything

I am not one to blow my own trumpet, unless it is actually the trumpet I own which is in a case... somewhere... so yeah, I wrote this lyrics and I'm pretty happy with them. So I thought I would share them with you. I keep meaning to post my lyrics up here but I always feel it's just self serving and slightly arrogant but what can I say?

The song is called "It Means Everything". It's about losing loved ones very close to you. I wrote it about two of the most influential people in my life, both my Grandfathers, and every time I sing it I can't help but start to cry. However, please ignore to rather emotional blogger and just enjoy my words.

Do you ever look up at the sky?
And ask yourself why
The more things change, the more they stay the same
Are these rules we live by?

Do you lay awake at night
Asking your god if a wish is too big to deny
And you don’t know what it means
But it means everything

Do you feel you’ve lost everything
And you’ve no one or nothing to believe in
You feel alone, can’t find home
Because it’s gone

Maybe home is an imaginary place
That people seek
It’s not where the heart it and it’s not where you started
But it means everything

When the wind blows, do you hear it call?
Our time is drawing near
But it mean’s everything
It means everything

We morn the cost of the lost
The dearly departed
But they’ve reach a higher place
And to me that means everything

This song was written for you
The ones I loved and lost
If you could see just how much I’ve grown
That would mean everything
so say we all
