Lyrics: 

V1
Like ev’ry kid
I would study the sky
Dazzled by stars
The how the why

And I’d think to myself
Oh WOW! There must be hundreds
…Well, not even close

Chorus
Don’t know who I am
Just who I’ve been
Through a prism that shows
All I’ve done, all I’ve seen
...No stopping at what went before
There’ll always be more

V2
Like everyone
I would study the heart
Dazzled by love
Especially the start

And I’d think to myself
Oh WOW! It won’t be painful
…Well, not even close

Chorus
Don’t know who I am
Just who I’ve been
Through a prism that shows
All I’ve done, all I’ve seen
...No stopping at what went before
There’ll always be more

Bridge
Only two questions concern me now
…Whether I’m a tumbleweed
Or an angel still on course
Whether I'm directionless
Or returning to the Source

Chorus
Don’t know who I am
Just who I’ve been
Through a prism that shows
All I’ve done, all I’ve seen
...No stopping at what went before
There’ll always be more

lovely vocal and guitar work in the Joan Baez style, lovely work - like the gentle harmonies.

Gorgeous ballad. The poetry and the insight in the lyrics is delivered so perfectly. Love your vocals as they soar in this song. The bridge works really well. Great collaboration. Love the hook.

Your vocals are so great. Smile And after the first verse, when the beat comes on... come on! that just works. Build it up! Nice.

Strong collab you two. That chorus is a killer. The harmonic change in the bridge got my attention too. Nice work.
