lyrics

Kick
© 2001, Jason Johnston

Gotta come through this somehow and turn around
To the light that’s chased me through a hole or two
Am I gonna leave it behind, and cross the line
To the way around the corner there for me and you

And I can’t see what you’ve got up your sleeve
But it’s gotta be much better than this
And I can’t find as I grope through my mind
A consolation that just lets me exist

Looking for something unknown, Throwing stones
Into the water just to watch them ripple it
Wish it could change my point of view, or latitude
But I’m left here on the shores of “nothing yet.”


And I can’t see what you’ve got up your sleeve
But it’s gotta be much better than this
And I can’t find as I grope through my mind
A consolation that just lets me exist

Flipping through pages and see, the life to be
Has got a lot more teeth than I have ever used
Living in hope and poverty, and it seems
That they did it all in life together too.

And I can’t see what you’ve got up your sleeve
But it’s gotta be much better than this
And I can’t find as I grope through my mind
A consolation that just lets me exist
And I don’t know when this side of me will go
Cause I saw it in the mirror last I check
And I need a kick to put me to my knees
And a hand of grace to help me up again
