No One Said It Would Be Easy

27 Apr

Working late/early tonight, and this song by Cloud Cult (my favorite band from Minnesota) has kept my motor running. It’s one that just grabs me deep, makes my soul dance a bit. Beautiful, long intro that builds and builds with spirit and energy, and then lyrics that speak in god’s voice.

Here’s the verse behind it:

When you came up from the ground
From a million little pieces
You’re a pretty human being
Yeah, you’re a pretty human being

When it all comes crashing down
Try to understand your meanings
No one said it would be easy
This living, it ain’t easy, oh

You were sewn together
with a tapestry of molecules
A billion baby galaxies
and wide open spaces

And everything you need is here
Everything you fear is here
And it’s holding you up
It just keeps holding you up

When you came up from the ground
From a million little pieces
You’re a pretty human being
Yeah, you’re a pretty human being

When it all comes crashing down
Try to understand your meanings
No one said it would be easy
This living, it ain’t easy, oh

-No One Said It Would Be Easy by Cloud Cult, from the album Feel Good Ghosts
