TAKE A PEBBLE



TAKE A PEBBLE, EMERSON, LAKE AND PALMER


Just take a pebble and cast it to the sea,
Then watch the ripples that unfold into me,
My face spill so gently into your eyes,
Disturbing the waters of our lives.

Shread of our memories are lying on your grass;
Wounded words of laughter are graveyards of the past.
Photographs are grey and torn, scattered in your fields
Letters of your mem'ries are not real.

Sadness on your shoulders like a wornout overcoat
In pockets creased and tattered hang the rags of your hope.
The daybreak is your midnight; the colours have all died.
Disturbing the waters of our lives, of our lives, of our lives, lives,
lives, lives...
Of our lives.


"A small trouble is like a pebble. Hold it too close to your eye
and it fills the whole world and puts everything out of focus. Hold
it at a proper distance and it can be examined and properly
classified. Throw it at your feet and it can be seen in its true
setting, just one more tiny bump on the pathway of life."
