Alex Ebert, “Glimpses”
“I found peace, in my way but it didn’t last beyond the day.
I’ve had glimpses around the bend, but in the morning, I start again…
Now mama I’m so tired, from the bullshit.
My soul cried, from the bullshit.
& I’m so tired, but I know I’ll make it with you by my side.
Perhaps I’m crazy, still I’m thinking there is change in the air.
We were trying together,
now we’re trying just to care.
Now if we find peace, oh let it stay,
Let it last beyond the day…
I’ve had glimpses of our tomorrow
But Lord if I didn’t I’d kill myself today.”
