Overcast (A Brighter Day)

from Edge of Today by Atom Orr

lyrics

Grey skies rolling in the morning light
Cool wet air still hanging on
The silence is only broken from the waking birds song
And my slow shifting walk down the hallway

Still echoes from the night’s dream I had
Blurry visions of what I thought to be true
You would be normally making your ginger tea right now
But the remains are only the space of you

It will be alright
The overcast skies will change
Like the shadows moved by the light
To a brighter day

Lately I don’t know where I’m going to
If I am truthful, I don’t think I ever really knew
I would just write my life story in my head
And in my heart, I would tell myself it was true
We’ve got to reach out and take hold of our lives
Life is but a day, make the world what we want to see
Even if it is just a few steps, leaving no regrets
Only the strong can trust going on to where they want to be

It will be alright
The overcast skies will change
Like the shadows moved by the light
To a brighter day
