“The Lucky One” quote of the Day June 17: Garrison Keillor

“Some luck lies in not getting what you thought you wanted but getting what you have, which once you have it you may be smart enough to see is what you would have wanted had you known. ”

“Make the Noise You Came to Make”: Lyrics from “The Lucky One”

I’m writing lyrics and music every day for the record I’m cutting in September, “The Lucky One.” These lyrics are for my song “Make The Noise You Came to Make,” and maybe later I’ll post the rough demo with music. In the meantime, enjoy these. Check out my Kickstarter project when you get a chance.

If your voice is cracked and gritty
Sing a song that’s more than pretty

At 6 AM the sky is cool and grey
It looks to be an ordinary day
To my eye everything is just the same
But I doubt that there’s a thing that hasn’t changed

Compared to earth and sky and sun
You and I are always young
we get the time we came to take
Let’s make the noise we came to make
Yeah make the noise we came to make

Now the ordinary takes a turn to glamor
You throw a look that fills my head with drama
I’ll have a smoke and feel my motor running
I’ll drive all through the night to see what’s comin

Compared to earth and sky and sun
You and I are always young
we get the time we came to take
Let’s make the noise we came to make
Yeah make the noise we came to make

I think I’ll have another day
to sweat and strain and dream and play
Maybe even one more night
To laugh and love and scheme and fight
And if I die before I wake
I know my life was not a fake

Compared to earth and sky and sun
You and I are always young
we get the time we came to take
Let’s make the noise we came to make
Yeah make the noise we came to make
