As is

As I walked around New York a few weeks ago,
I noticed I wasn't taking pictures.
I was worried that I was not inspired . . .
What would I paint now?
And then they struck me . . . the fabulous water towers of the city skyline.
Peaking out from behind walls, towering over the city, on top of it all,
they were everywhere.
"...cuz when i look around, i think this, this is good enough
and i try to laugh at whatever life brings,
cuz when i look down i just miss all the good stuff
when i look up
i just trip over things..."

i try to carry my camera around, even if it's just my small one, sometimes i also need new eyes to see my familiar surroundings. (did i make sense?) love the lyrics.

Yes, you made sense, and it is true.
Thanks for "dropping by"
(yes, definitely some of my favourite lyrics )
