Almost

 

Almost had a moment

Almost had something to share

But we didn’t dare

 

We could rise with the tide

Elevate everything in sight

Soak up all the light

Make the world a paradise

 

But we  choose to divide

Losin’ the truth to soothe our pride

When we could soar

We could rise we could fly

 

Almost

Almost found the cure to what was broken

Almost uncovered the love so rare

As if we nearly cared

 

Singin’ every rhyme

Yet we feel no peace of mind

Attacking everything in sight

Never gettin’ off the dime

 

Could have been so much more

Had we cracked open the door

We might have gazed at the sky open sky

 

Almost

 

By now we should have worked out

all the doubts

 instead of chokin’ on lies

made up all at one time

   

ridiculous

could have been sublime

 humanity   unspoken

would’ve known it all the while

had the truth been awoken

 

Always in a bind

starin’ down past ghosts

we can keep ourselves alive

we don’t have to say…
