Lyrics – No Solid Ground

{ words & music by Simon Spire }

*

Is there a place where the ground won’t move?

A carefully organized, single room

I’d search every corner, exposing my lies

So nothing is left as a nasty surprise

*

I will admit

As much as I would like to get it right I’m still mystified

And I will admit

Even with all I want to be I might just end up me

*

I’ve been here before I never thought I’d return

As if I had learned all I needed to learn

But what a beautiful surprise to find, that what is found is too big to be held

Saying once more there’s no solid ground

*

I will admit

As much as I would like to get it right I’m still mystified

And I will admit

Even with all I want to be I might just end up me

*

Why does the earth seem to fly without having to try?

Why does the sight of the mystery, move too fast to be seen?

And why is the moment I find what’s here, the moment it disappears?

So I sit down and stop; and look around and see,

What am I trying to be? If only it were me

*

I try not to try but tonight any more seems like less

And I feel the sky laughing as each mountain-top reveals the next

And I wish I could tell all that I wanted to say

And I wish I could just hold it all

Here in my arms and kiss it all today

*

Chorus

*

I try not to try; I’m still mystified.
