Dark Green Water

Dark Green Water

All things fade into dark green water down by the lake
Mistakes were made and that's the heart of this pain
But I'll rejoice, I won't give anything
But forgiveness once you have the courage to explain

I learned this phrase from my father
He said ""no perfection can ever bring joy""
Or, ""there's none without it""
Like a life that has a start but no end

All aspiring comes with equal consequence, like some things we abuse and the joys they prevent
And I'll numb or stall all fall and pretend that dark water will cloak all our deepest intent

I said, you got this heart from your Mother
She bears all our suffering through the longest of years, too long lately, like a life that has a start but no end

I fear flawless life in a pure sense. Hold on best I can to a place where:

All things fade into dark green water down by the lake
Mistakes were made and that's the heart of this pain
But I'll reflect
I wont ask anything but forgiveness once I have the courage to explain
