still my heart

that train just won’t stop
blowin its horn that way
but it don’t really matter
i wasn’t sleeping anyway
i got precious little time
before that rooster starts
just trying to calm my mind
just trying to still my heart

the more i get
my focus right
the more i see
how one could lose sight
the many things that don’t suck
rival the things that do
and we all live in the house
of what we pay attention to

i’m really not that bad
once you get use to me
might even make you glad
honey just wait and see
just trying to walk that line
just trying to do my part
trying to calm my mind
trying to still my heart
