about

Life is continually changing.
Where I live in Canada, it seems that just when I've started to acclimate and get use to the way that the weather feels in summertime, fall is just around the corner. It seems I can never get used to things. I wrote this song at a time when my family and I were transitioning out of one thing and into a new phase of our lives (with lots of questions). Around the same time, the weather was starting to get colder, and I could feel change was in the air. I knew going forward that things would look different, whether I liked it or not.
In the midst of change, we are all faced with two basic choices: we can remain the same, (in hopes that our circumstances too will remain the same), or we can change and adapt.
A few months down the road, I thought that things would eventually return to "normal", and in some ways they have... but I'm learning that life, and the circumstances surrounding us are continually changing. They're never static; the world keeps spinning, the clock keeps ticking, and we are all are faced with choices each day of how we too, will move ahead in this life. I've heard it said that, "time waits for no one" and I think it's true. But as each day as time moves forward, we're invited to participate in the changes around us, and in turn, become changed ourselves. This song speaks to tension we face as humans... as we desire to move forward into what the future holds, but fear what we might leave behind.

lyrics

I woke up this morning and something felt different
Like we're at the beginning yet somehow the end
I looked out my window, the leaves they were changing
From colours of green to yellows and red
From colours of green to yellows and red

I walked to my car, the windshield was covered
With precipitation, there's frost in the night
The first time it comes to me just like a warning
The rumours are true, old man winters alive
The rumours are true, old man winters alive

When the seasons change we try to hold onto
All that we've known
This familiar ground on which our lives have grown
Oh how we've grown
But time rolls on
Time rolls keeps rolling on

Autumn it feels so familiar and foreign
I can hardly believe it's upon us now
Pumpkin patches all speckled with orange
We harvest the fields 'til the sun goes down

When the seasons change we try to hold onto
All that we've known
This familiar ground on which our lives have grown
Oh how we've grown
But time rolls on
Time rolls keeps rolling on

Rollin' on, ooooh
Rollin' on, ooooh
Oh it keeps rollin' on, ooooh
Rollin' on
Oh, in time we'll find that we'll be alright

Well I'm trying my best to keep count in my head
With The Great Conductor keeping the time
Like the hands on the clock, He is faithful and steady
Like a metronome setting the rhythms of life
Like a metronome setting the rhythms of life
