Lyrics to song: “Long Time Coming” by Thom Sequoia

LONG TIME COMING

It’s been a long time coming
like asphalt on a concrete road
you’ve been asking, should we walk, or start running
just to carry, this load.

Is it hell, or highwater,
do we bend, or did we just break,
what is time, when you can’t even slow it,
is it truth, or love that we make

It’s been a long time coming
It’s been a long hard road
It’s been a long time coming
when it’s life, that we bought & sold.
It’s been a long time coming, been a long time,
long time coming

and I’ve been waiting on the high ground,
for these waters to recede,
damn the floodgates, damn the levies of these sages,
the warning voices, we did not heed,

So is this folly now, or wisdom hard earned,
and just who is it, makes the better sense,
when the enemy, turns out to be ourselves
and we are still, sitting on the fence

It’s been a long time coming
It’s been a long hard road
It’s been a long time coming
when it’s life, that we bought & sold.
It’s been a long time coming, been a long time,
long time coming

Is it hell, or highwater,
do we bend, or did we just break,
what is time, when you can’t even slow it,
is it truth, or love that we make

It’s been a long time coming
It’s been a long hard road
It’s been a long time coming
when it’s life, that we bought & sold.
It’s been a long time coming, been a long time,
long time coming

Lyrics & Music By Thom Sequoia

It’s been a long time coming
like asphalt on a concrete road
you’ve been asking, should we walk, or start running
just to carry, this load.

Is it hell, or highwater,
do we bend, or did we just break,
what is time, when you can’t even slow it,
is it truth, or love that we make

It’s been a long time coming
It’s been a long hard road
It’s been a long time coming
when it’s life, that we bought & sold.
It’s been a long time coming, been a long time,
long time coming

and I’ve been waiting on the high ground,
for these waters to recede,
damn the floodgates, damn the levies of these sages,
the warning voices, we did not heed,

So is this folly now, or wisdom hard earned,
and just who is it, makes the better sense,
when the enemy, turns out to be ourselves
and we are still, sitting on the fence

It’s been a long time coming
It’s been a long hard road
It’s been a long time coming
when it’s life, that we bought & sold.
It’s been a long time coming, been a long time,
long time coming

Is it hell, or highwater,
do we bend, or did we just break,
what is time, when you can’t even slow it,
is it truth, or love that we make

It’s been a long time coming
It’s been a long hard road
It’s been a long time coming
when it’s life, that we bought & sold.
It’s been a long time coming, been a long time,
long time coming

SPRING THAT COMES – A thought poem by Thom Sequoia

Spring That Comes

Haven’t written poetry in years. But tonight I felt like it. Here it is, off the cuff, written in the last 45 minutes, hot off the proverbial press!

SPRING THAT COMES

I feel the Spring coming.
Repeat of each journey around this elipse we cling.
Have we been here before, hanging in space –
This precise horizon, aligned again with Father
Sun and Mother Earth?

Aging things learn aging.
But there are new things that were not
here last time around this canting wheel.
River of Souls, come see such traffic jams
of the millions who leave and the earth
children who’ve just arrived!

Look!  Yellowed pages, poems
and songs I once knew.
Muse who came through this faltering mind,
I am glad at least of one thing I have learned –
to open the door and let you through.

Point to God, I dare you. Only leave your lofty finger
alight for an hour and a day. This way you cannot
be faulted for the full circumference of such universal tasks.
Earthly spin. Heaven Design. Emote what comes.

I still remember to look down and watch the lilies bloom,
the worried ant along his trail, the cicada song,
the human tear, and warming smile not at all
juxtaposed to how or why.

For this,
Find the ones you love and drop a gentle
kiss upon their brow,
a word of love mixed upon these
event horizons.

Come Spring. Green my vision again.
And I will smell as never before, until
we come around anew.

Thanks to all who keep coming back and checking this blog. I want to apologize for not putting in more entries in the last 6 weeks. when I first put up this blog back in September (seems like yesterday), I made a goal to post at least once a week. I was doing so good up until about mid January.

Of mention is also the Art City Music Fest. Don’t know to what capacity I will be involved this time around. The event will be on June 25, 26, 2010. I encourage all Utah musicians to participate. It will be a fun time. Yeah!
