[E]I woke up this morning and
[E]The weather was pristine.
[A]The sun just started rising,
[E]Mother Nature doing her thing.
[C]I made a pot of coffee,
[D]While it brewed I walked outside.
[E]The quiet morning greeted me
[E]As I tried to decide. [C] [D] [E]
Should I head to the office,
Or head out to the hills?
In for a day behind a desk,
Or out for a day of thrills?
Should I stray off my daily path?
It’s so tempting just to stray,
But I went on in to work
Just like every other day.
I made it home that evening
After my daily grind.
I made it to the weekend with my
Work week left behind.
I reflected on my decision.
I reflected on how I live.
I thought about how much longer
I’d be willing just to give.
[C]How much really is enough?
[A]How much is too much [E]pain?
[C]What would I do if not my job
[A]With nothing left to [D]gain?
[C]Nothing but whatever it is
[A]I figure out to [E]do,
[C]Going anywhere I want
[D]With the [B7]people I want [E]too.
The mountains might be calling,
Maybe even the sea,
Or all the places in between.
They all could be calling me,
And I won’t have to go,
And I won’t have to stay.
I could even stay at home if I want to,
So long as the weather stays this way.
