Songtext - Becoming

Things are good when they come,
they're different when they're done.

Things may look like children's play,
they become hard work when they stay.

Things wide open in space,
a scenery you cannot trace.

Refrain

Living in the now and here,
past and future, the mind swept clear.
It's a one way road, no U-turn anywhere,
no matter what, you're gonna go from here to there.

Trying to find a home, another Itaca,
traveling thousands miles thru Africa.

Verses

People looking scared and unsure,
there might be more beauty than you can endure.

People on the brink of death,
standing up and keep on going nevertheless

People's life in poverty,
The few they have, they share it equally.

Refrain

Living in the now and here,
[etc.]
Let things and people stay the way they are,
traveling thousands miles thru Africa.


[Written 11.9. - 4.10. on a trip thru South Africa]
