Believin'  

Posted by Alex Pendragon


The rain's been fallin' for five days a week
Saturdays and Sundays too
just enough
just enough time between the rain drops for it all to dry

and I have to keep believin'

The grass is growing faster now
just ahead of the goats predation
just enough
just fast enough to hold the sand together in the sun

and I think I like believin'

I know that some would think I'm foolin'
foolin' myself and all I try to talk into fantasy
but believin's only halfway gone to being there
where I think maybe we all need to be

I know that some would think I'm foolish
foolish for thinkin' in terms of fairy tales and tree huggin'
but foolishness is halfway there to innocence
that land beyond knowing a tad to much to be happy

The rain's been kind for all this long long summer
workdays, vacation days too
just enough
just enough to keep me in clean till the dirty comes callin'

and I WILL keep believin'

believing in you.......

Innocence is good. Naive isn't quite so good.

I don't think a tree-hugging belief is foolsihness. We have to stay hopeful.

Naive isn't so good, but it beats cynical.
