When Nine and Ten Meet

from by Shane Toriscelli



When nine and ten meet
It brings me peace like a calm breeze
On a Blue Ridge mountain peak

The beauty that's so steadfast in your ways
Brings me joy like your smile
On a cool spring day

When the tears start rushing down your face
It's like the shrill of freezing water
Just rushing through my veins

But you let me know that it's all gonna be okay
Sometimes joy and sadness
Are expressed in the same ways

I am but a child of the flatlands
With a love for the mountains
The blue-ridged span

And like any form of art, they didn't form by chance
Behind every work worth admiration
There's an impressive set of hands

Tired with the way this always turns out
Every long journey ends
With ever increasing doubt

But the assurance is in your smile, it's in your voice
Oh God you never bring us sadness
Without any Joy

But we put ourselves behind closed doors
That we've created for ourselves
With the empty thoughts of the world

All the while we're searching for something more
What we never realize
Is what we want is behind the door

Want's not just a word it's a curse so stay away
Be content with what you have. Be thankful for everyday
We'll never know how much this life of ours can change
Be content with what you have. Be thankful for everyday
