Morning Light

from by David Thompson



Yesterday I awoke in the shadow of the clouds
They were crying tears, trapping me inside the house
Though my mother knew that it didn't feel right
Missing out on the morning light
And she said life is better than before
And she sang as we walked through that door

We'll make a wish
Let it glisten in the sun
Then the world will be
Just as endless as I see it now
Although I am feeling so small
This day could last forever
And the echo sounds
Like the beating of a drum
When we all find peace
To be happy when the sun goes down
I know if I wait 'til dawn
It'll say hello to you

So today I walked though the field behind the pines
'long with Uncle Joseph following behind
And the only thing left to bother me
Was the water drying on my sleeves
And he said life is better than before
Like she sang as we walked through that door

Hello there! I'm David and I write music. I'm currently in a new band called Something Dear and we'll hopefully be doing some really cool things very soon.

Over the last three years I have been held hostage by my first solo album project. The good news is that I'm really finished with it this time*, and I'll be working hard on new things from here on.

Take care!
