Lit by the Mystery

lyrics

I don’t want to see a ghost
I got plenty on my mind for this one lifetime
Don’t think I‘m not haunted,
Don’t think I take for granted
All those I carry in my bones

Some days I’m heavy with history
Some days I’m lit by the mystery of it all

Forest trees, a symphony
A new arrangement every year
First the aspen, then the fir
Changing color, growing clear
Clouds build their way into a storm
A daily matinee
lightning, thunderclap, paint the flyway

Some days I’m heavy with history
Some days I’m lit by the mystery of it all

I don’t want to see a ghost
I don’t want to see a ghost
I got plenty on my mind for this one lifetime
