Good Morning Demon

Good morning Demon

You know that little bird

Flew in through my window

Demanding to be heard

I can feel your tiny wings

Beating on my breast

Oh, you have stolen my sweet rest

You have stolen my sweet rest

 

When I was a little girl my daddy said to me,

“Life is not a gentle stream, it’s a wild and raging sea

Here’s your paddle, here’s your boat

And seeds to plant for food

Now go forth and see what you can do

Go forth and see what you can do.”

 

Good morning demon…

 

I said, “Daddy, dear Daddy, please tell me what to do

Won’t you give me some answers and a guarantee or two

It all looks so rough and risky

Just as far as I can see

Won’t you protect me from calamity?

Please protect me from calamity.”

 

He said, “Daughter, darling daughter, please take this tip from me

You can wish all you want, but there are no guarantees

You wake up every morning

Never knowing what’s to come

And it goes on this way until your race is won

It goes on this way until you race is won”.

 

Good morning demon…
