lyrics

I’m dreaming for these, these months to come,
that they’d be brighter than the sun,
and may we reach out, reach out our arms,
to find what’s near and what is far.


Reason’s hope and reason’s fate,
that we might find ourselves today,
embracing hours and moments stitched.
In such time we do exist.

And still I’m dreaming of these,
months with rattled suitcases,
pictures of…

the ceaseless faces,
traced above,
painted colors,
of the sun.

I am no prophet, for future’s sovereign,
land extends beyond my pockets.
Surely we without knowing why,
care so deeply without showing.

How to show and how to read,
these small wonders may always be.
These hands they shake now, watched out awake,
only in song can one relate,

And still I’m dreaming of these,
months with rattled suitcases,
pictures of…

the burnt out lanterns strewn across,
the wooden floors with ancient moss,
the people talk as one,
their messages written as they run,

their ceaseless faces,
traced above,
painted colors,
of the sun.

the ceaseless faces,
painted colors,
traced above,
because we’re children,
children of the sun

about

james of mosaics Atlanta, Georgia

I am a maker, artist, and musician from Atlanta. Songwriting and performing is a way for me to initiate a dialogue. This dialogue can lead to a deeper understanding of what it means to be human. I hope that by sharing my self through sounds, images, and words I can express something intangible.
