Liner Notes: 

Getting toward the end of my little series of songs.

19 of 28.

Lyrics: 

looking back
involves many things
you start to see
what history brings

looking ahead
involves other things
you start to see
what the future might bring

It's not the way I thought it might be
But it is just the way it needs to be
I'm content
I'm content

getting set
involves many things
you start to see
what tomorrow brings

getting back
involves other things
you start to see
what you still need to bring

It's not the way I thought it might be
But it is just the way it needs to be
I'm content
I'm content

It's not the way I thought it might be
But it is just the way it needs to be
I'm content
I'm content

I was just thinking about you and wondering how you are doing... and I love the ambiguity of this song relevant to the choices we make and the thoughtful balance of considerations. A great song on making decisions. And the wonderful hook - sometimes there is no wrong choice but you know the right choice if you feel content once you have made it. Nice strum and melody as well.

The repeated verses with subtle shifts are well-played in this charming little song of winks and nods. The chorus is my favourite part; powerful in its succinctness. Also, yay, whistling.

the chorus is wonderful, I love the chord change at 'way I need it to be' specifically. The vocals are great and fit the theme really well. That 12 string sounds great, and whistling solos permanently rock.

Hey its well put together and light after listening to stephen wordsmiths lyric just before. This is diametrically opposed. But like his being not all dark, im not sure this is all light!
