Maybe that's what makes the Canyon Grand.

At my last show I read out loud a written intro to one of my songs called Canyon Grand.  Someone contacted me from the show and asked if I had published it because they wanted to read it again.  So, I've decide to post it here!  It's in its imperfect form, scribbled down with a sharpie, cut apart and pieced back together with blue painter's tape, but I kinda like it that way because it's honest.

Below are the lyrics to my song, Canyon Grand.  I'm planning to play it at my next show on 9/19.  Would love to see you.  Here's the ticket link if you want to come: http://ow.ly/QrXFA

CANYON GRAND (jr 4/15/2014)

I’m a lot stronger than I was

And about half as naive

Come a long way from where I used to be

Well, at least that’s what I think

 

Been a lot of places recently

I’ve been running running away

But I can never seem to get away from me

So I guess I’ll have to stay

 

Waves may crash and thunder roll

like a chisel to the soul

But Grace can hold when our hands won’t

at least that’s what I’m told

 

Something so crazy about love

It isn’t always like the movies

Cause there is a pain that is worse than death

But somehow it brings to life

 

Something so scary about life

Yeah, we think we’re in control

But the storms and clouds and winds and rain

They come when they wan’t to

 

Waves may crash and thunder roll

like a chisel to the soul

But Grace can hold when our hands won’t

at least that’s what I’m told

 

Something so beautiful about the Grand Canyon

It takes our breath away

It’s strong and wide and cut real deep

Maybe that’s what makes the canyon grand

Yeah maybe that’s what makes the canyon grand

 

Waves may crash and thunder roll

like a chisel to the soul

But Grace can hold when our hands won’t

at least that’s what I’m told

don’t you wanna know

 

I’m a lot stronger than I was

And about half as naive

Come a long way from where I used to be

Well, at least that’s what I think
