Every Tunesday I post a boldly imperfect, one-take song draft of a song. This was written during FAWM 2020 (February Album Writing Month). A friend offered me a prompt to write a song of questions. This is what I came up with. (You can receive a new prompt most Fridays and find out more about the Fearless Songwriting Challenge by signing up for my mailing list here).
Who is the giver, who is the gift?
Who is the lion, whom with the Lamb sits?
When does bestowing, become behooving?
Was it a gift? Was it a plan?
Whence did the word come? Who did it quote?
Why does it differ from mouth to the spoke?
Why am I wondering what fiddles and cats sing?
Am I just mud? Am I a ghost?
Am I dreaming or fast asleep
Bored stiff or edged on my seat
When is the story is complete?
What are the riches that I can bring with me?
When will it falter that this too shall pass?
How is river, not just the same water?
What is the limit of expanses so vast
