lyrics

*5/26 mix ©L Saklad~ roots reggae bubble w alt-blues rock bridge (new piano added)
[v1] Ol' man shoes on a young boy's mind
not outta step, but that circle of time
Don't know how, don't know when
& don't look now, it's already then.
Gathering holes in familiar soles
always so comfy just before the bell tolls
All of the miles, smiles & trials
well worn steps polished, shine like new tiles.

[v2] Ol' man shoes on a young boy's mind,
walk on...
& who's to say who's right or wrong
where's up or down, what's large or small?
How much will can we summon here
if we could let go of every fear?

[chor] Ever more diligent to lighten this load
never less tethered to gravity's hold.
Teach shoes to grow wings & never touch down
only to see open sky & high ground.

[v3] Humpty Dumpty mighta climbed that wall
but his beckoned call was to rise above it all
& who's to say who's right or wrong
where's up or down, what's large or small?
How much will can we summon here
if we could let go of every fear?

[end] Ol' man shoes on a young boy's mind, walk on
ol' man shoes, an innocent mind, walk on
walk on...
