about

There is a better half to each thing you know. Have the courage to hope, and with persistence you will begin to see the beauty in the world around you (even when it’s dark).

lyrics

There’s no face that smiles that can’t also frown.
The stories of each land are echoed and turned around.
The only story to go by is the one inside your head
Filled with teachings of the wind that flows from mouths and limbs and ocean ends.

The world is a magnet of positive and negativity.
Water can fall and float and sink to go through it all again.
The worst things happen to the best,
But that's a story told by those with ink tinted sadness

Well beat me and take me and tell me the world is unkind.
I’ll turn around and I'll run away
To the higher ground.

No one can bring me down as long as I live
And so far as I’m breathing
I’m singing of the better half

No one can bring me down as long as I live
And so far as I’m breathing
I’m singing of the better half

No one can bring me down as long as I live
And so far as I’m breathing
I’m singing of the better half
