No Regrets

It’s start with a spark, the flint 
just to get the fire lit, it’s dark 
Thinking this is it, gotta make your mark
Til the morning hits, let it be legit
Let it rush in fast, let me get a grip
Knowing that spirit, brought to the limit
I’ve tried, I’ve realized, that the more I try
The more that it flies, the more that i realize
That this time is a prize, a shimmer in my eyes
A glimmer that I prize, simmering inside
Marking my demise 
sparkle in my eyes
Now I’m sheltered from the skies 
And no matter how I try
I can’t shake the feeling 
And I won’t compromise

Listen, please listen. 
Cause there’s something I gotta say
I’m staring out the window 
On this cold and rainy day
I’m looking at clouds
And the silver linings gray


It’s been a minute since I got lifted 
And sifted through my own messes 
My guess is that while I’ll miss em 
I probably won’t regret em
Nah nah

It’s been years and their all a blur to me
Now something had just occurred to me
I feel it with all this certainty
But it’s gone before I turn and see

The safety that’s waiting in the wings
Waiting for that bell to ring
My guess is that I’ll never know
The calmness that the morning brings. 

A simple smile and I’m on my knees
It seems like an act of revelry
The crimson rushing as I bleed
Nourishes the bursting seed
