That's Just About Right




My old friend lives up in the mountains

He flew up there to paint the world

He says even though interpretation's what I count on

This little picture to me seems blurred
 Hard lines and the shadows come easy
 see it all just as clear as a bell
 I just can't seem to set my easel to please me
 I paint my heaven but it looks like hell

 Youblues might be grey, your less might be more
Your window to the world might be your own front door
 Youshiniest day might come in the middle of the night
 That's just about right

He says that I ain't coming down till my picture is perfect

And all the wonders gone from my eye

Down through my hands and on to the canvas

Still like my vision but still a surprise

Real life, he says, is the hardest impression

It's always moving so I let it come through

That my friend you see is the glory of true independence

Just to do what you do what you do what you do


Progression 1
My old friend came down from the mountain
Progression 1
Without even looking he found a little truth
 You can go through life with the greatest intentions
 But you do what you do what you just gotta do
