All the Lights

The starlight shrouded by clouds

Submerged in the glow of the moon

In the deep night singing

Not a note can be taken back

A bridge crossed

A path walked

The pace is changing

In the following hush

There is a moment pristine

An untouched stream

Sparkling in the sun

A memory of things

Which have yet to occur

There is a far away dream

A step closer to the next

Obstacle

Opportunity

Opening

The forest still calls

Mysterious

As dawn arises with the birds

A curious cup of coffee

A sense of wonder

Delightful

Maybes and Hedged Bets

Look again where you did hesitate

Look close at your regrets

Check all that you refused to risk

Because you hedged your bets

Take note of how you let you down

Take stock of what you lost

Remember that the only way to win

Is to risk what you have not

Next time that you say maybe

Closely analyze the odds

Make sure to weigh regret

Times three or maybe more

When opportunity is gone again

She may burn that motherfucking door

Behind the Song: When Beggars Ride

“If wishes were horses, beggars would ride.” Is a saying which means that merely thinking about something doesn’t get the job accomplished, and was used as a sort of rebuke to the poor, but that’s doesn’t have to be the whole story.

I thought about how dreams are motivation to attempt the extraordinary. With opportunity and self-discipline, people can change their lives, accomplish amazing goals, and reach their dreams. Wishes are hopes defined, and dreams make life worth living.

I wanted this song to celebrate the creative process, the risk taking, and the determination it takes to get new ventures off the ground, or to solve particularly tricky problems. I wanted the feeling of it to be relaxed, and dreamy as solutions and vision come to us when we are in a receptive state of mind. And I wrote it further along in the story, with the beggars on the way to the goal, doing the impossible in a more equitable world for everyone.


When beggars ride, they can change the world.
