why try
when everything i do feels half right
I wonder through my life
everything I say seems half right

But sometimes I'm standing here
High on a riverbed

light breaks through
everything feels good for a while
High on a riverbed

where am I?
everything I do feels half right
how can i be satisfied?
writing words from someone's else's lies

but sometimes i'm standing here
high on a riverbed
and light breaks through
everything feels good for a while
high on a riverbed

i see myself sometimes
vision is a mystery half blind
keep missing all the time
seeing what I could be if I...
If i

Sometimes I'm standing here
high on a riverbed
and light breaks through
everything feels good for a while
high on a riverbed

Sometimes I'm standing here
high on a riverbed
and light breaks through
everything feels good for a while
high on a riverbed

    General CommentThis song seems to be about those moments in an otherwise sad, frustrating, and seemingly pointless life when you suddenly stop and realize that it's going to be ok.

    General CommentI think its more about how the words sound with the music. The tune the melodic line he sings and how with the music.. How it makes you feel and as an old bass player I think we read too deep.
    Its just "Stories he tells"
    I love this band, their sound, guitar bass lyrics... Total package. Great bass lines by Dean, Tod is unique, Glen is a song machine. Gus is an inspiration with a bone disease that makes his bones soft.
    I play good but I wish I could have been in a band like this.
