Lyrics – Dying Daily

{ words & music by Simon Spire }

*

Every day a new me waits

And with it comes a whole new place

I’m not sure I want to see

I drag my feet until I find

The mask of yesterday has died

Melting in creation’s memory

And every end turns out to be

The start of something I’m not ready to see

*

I keep trying and dying daily

To a view that’s a new side of me

*

I’m always flying blind

Leaving myself behind

Today is all I am

Everything I’ve ever been

Was just a breath of air it seems

Dissipates

And every end turns out to be

The start of something I’m not ready to see

*

I keep trying and dying daily

To a view that’s a new side of me

*

A week from today I’ll be a faded memory

Romanticized good old days like bottled milk and J.F.K.

My end is near, dreams of tomorrow obsolete

And when I wake I’m off again

As someone I have never been

*

I keep trying and dying daily

To a view that’s a new side of me

Parts of me I can see die daily

As I watch from the space in between

*
