Willie Baronet

I wrote this song for my friend, Willie Baronet, for his birthday this week! My very handsome and talented husband is featured on the cajon drum...
Happy Birthday, Willie!

Piles of books are stacked around you
Beside the questions in your head
It's a brand new day, that's what someone said-

The questions don't get answered
and all those books cannot be read
Maybe the asking and the searching is what keeps you fed...

"Am I awake?" "Am I enough?"
"How do I choose to see?" and "What will I leave undone?"
"Which way would my life have gone?" "Well I wonder about the last page.."
And it goes on and on and on....

Some days it feels so heavy that your legs just shake
and still when it comes to hope it never is too late
Subtracting all the anger and you're leaving all the love
I wonder how exactly does one hold that thought?


Well you're half way to 100
You're never too old to grow younger
but you're bound to ask, "why me?"
