Today like every other day

Today, like every other day

Music by Unjay Lyrics by Rumi trans Coleman Barks adapted Unjay ©2008 Unjay

Today, like every other day, we wake up empty and frightened.
Today, like every other day
Don’t go back to your work leave your study
Take down your guitar
Take down your drum
~ Let the beauty we love be what we do.
There are hundreds of ways to kneel and kiss the ground
kiss the ground
~ Out beyond ideas of right and wrong, there is a field.
I’ll meet you there.
When the soul lies down in that grass, the world is too full to say
Ideas don’t make any sense.
We can’t even think of “you” and “I”
~ The breeze at dawn has secrets to show you.
Would you like to see the moon split in half with just one throw?
~ Don’t go back to sleep.
You must ask for what you really want.
Don’t go back to sleep.
They are going back and forth across the doorway where the two worlds touch.
Don’t go back to sleep.
The door is round and open.
Don’t go back to sleep.
Don’t go back to sleep.
The door is round and open
