If you will take me to the beach maybe I'll finally feel relief
amongst this concrete. I need a reason for being.
Now that we've traveled so far, loaded our life up into a car,
I've come to find I'm losing my mind in these Los Angeles times.
Our old river spot seems divine.
Sure, cities can be bright with their pretty lights.
Some find them the best way to see life,
but people have greed that rubs off on me
while nature reminds us to breathe.
We already have all that we need.
When you submerge my feet in that salt
it de-swells my ankles as well as my heart.
I feel that God is here; he whispers
through the clouds while the sunset dances around.
So, tonight as I go to close my eyes,
I'll give thanks to the living community for holding me,
so sweetly, in it's universal arms, where nothing can bring me harm.
