"A Joyful Noise" as written by and Glen Phillips....
birdless sky
breath hanging like
your silence
close your eyes
heart pounding
like shoes in a drier
want a cigarette now
thought I quit years ago
I will make a joyful noise

mouth open
lies pour out
you know we’re not leaving
you alone now
you will make a joyful noise


you’re still there
beneath the snow
you’re frozen
you’re waiting to be let go
let it go

    General CommentIncredible! Listened to this while thinking and ended up in meditation without understanding how or when it came. I think the song repeated even though I had not meant for it to, or perhaps it was one of those eternal moments. It seemed like hours. I don't remember everything that transpired in the moment but by the end of the song I felt like I was a child just being found after a long time lost in a cold dark night. Love, forgiveness, and understanding flooded my day and went on for a few weeks. Thank You Glen for whatever it is your doing.
