Apricot Tangle::Broken Out of Shell
Finally hear the frogs chirping at night
And the breeze is warm instead of chill
Life is easier knowing you are here
Iím a baby bird in a nest broken out of shell

There was a time when I thought I really knew
Without love my reasoning didnít have a clue
Now vanity feels forced, laid on like jokes
Without your womanís touch Iím fresh out of hope

Itís hard to believe audacity is still for sale
Buying a change to the feeling of what I see
Beauty sneaks through as I feel joy in my heart
She has smiled again without bankroll approval

The waves of the ocean cannot be tamed
My life, broken and twisted, never ashamed
I still live on with a spirit I canít fathom
Sand in my shoes and a day closer to summer


Cherry blossom pink favorite kind of bloom
Bees are doing great, chasing the perfume
I love the smell of spring, sun feels so near
If it were up to me, Iíd have one every year
