It's four o'clock

If I could turn my back on anything
I'd choose it to be you
I've lost all interest in almost everything that you do
You've more to do with complacency
And the whims and trims of children
Than any sort of worthwhile thing
Or the few folks left to feel them

Who am I but another fool who's flirting with divorce
Like every other thing
You keep my foolishness on course

Maybe there is someone else less like an awful void
Who might beckon me with open arms
And offer new employ
I've got to say I'm looking for it
But if it never comes
I'll think of when I love you
Before you were what you've become

Who am I but another fool who's flirting with divorce
Like every other thing
You keep my foolishness on course

Still we have our common ground
Which can never be annulled
To sing of the one who made us both
For he is wonderful

    General CommentFrom Josh:
    Dear Music: As the title implies, it's a letter to music in general. For the last nine years I've been a full-time writing, recording and touring musician and during that time I lost my love for the world of music. This creates an inner-conflict for someone who feels called to be a musician. I believe in what Showbread does, I love the music we make, but as soon as we take it out into the world of the industry or the music community I feel lost and out of place. My refuge lies in the calling I've been given and to whom it comes from and why. So this bitter sounding letter takes a turn and becomes a hymn of worship.

    General Commentas much as it is about the music it also seems to be dealing with a relation ship where the flame has been put out, and the struggle to stay,

    General CommentFor me, I can relate to it in the way of the fact that music has evolved from crooning, soulful, and heartfelt to selfish, greedy, and fame-obsessed themes. Now, everyone has their opinions, but this one is just mine. You are free to think differently. :)
    To back up my thoughts on this (amazing) song, all you hear on the radio these days are songs about having 'swag', being attractive, being able to get girls/guys with the snap of a finger, having tons of money, having fancy clothes, and partying all night. Yes, It is good to think highly of yourself, but there is a line between being confident, and being cocky. I think of this song as a symbolic statement that music has became annoying due to the selfishness and differentially within the lyrics. :)
