The Riddle…

14 Aug
This was one of those times when I was walking in Seaport Harbor with my kids and heard this song and I stopped in my tracks.  Dead in my tracks.  I thought, “My God… I so get this song”.  And so this becomes a blog.  As this is usually what happens.  May I present:
The Riddle by Five for Fighting
There was a man back in ’95
Whose heart ran out of summers
But before he died, I asked him
Wait, what’s the sense in life?
Come over me, come over me
He said
Son, why you got to sing that tune?
Catch a Dylan song or some eclipse of the moon
Let an angel swing and make you swoon
Then you will see, you will see
Then he said
Here’s a riddle for you
Find the answer
There’s a reason for the world
You and I
Picked up my kid from school today
Did you learn anything causin’ the world today
You can’t live in a castle far away
Now talk to me, come talk to me
He said
Dad, I’m big, but we’re smaller than small
In the scheme of things, well, we’re nothing at all
Still every mother’s child sings a lonely song
So play with me, come play with me
And, hey, dad
Here’s a riddle for you
Find the answer
There’s a reason for the world
You and I
I said
Son, for all I’ve told you
When you get right down to the
Reason for the world
Who am I?
There are secrets that we still have left to find
There have been mysteries from the beginning of time
There are answers we’re not wise enough to see
He said
You looking for a clue
I love you free
The batter swings and the summer flies
As I look into my angel’s eyes
A song plays on while the moon is high over me
Something comes over me
I guess we’re big, and I guess we’re small
If you think about it, man, you know we got it all
‘Cause we’re all we got on this bouncing ball
And I love you free
I love you freely
Here’s a riddle for you
Find the answer
There’s a reason for the world
You and I

 Yes, you may put this song on a continuous loop.  I have.
Cheers…from the luckiest mom in the world.
