BEAR'S BELLOW

I learned how to quench a fire
But they never taught me the skills to ignite
So whenever I am out there, my meal is raw,
the night is dark and my bones stay cold

Some say “be safe, it’s all you’re needing”
But is ‘be safe’ always worth the fight?
You may be winning but there’s no win
without a loss on the other side

I can hear the bear’s bellow
as he starts fishing the shallow
I am captured in the dirt and mumble:
“Will I survive when the bear is hungry?”
But someday I’ll rewrite this story
About some place filled with glory
It shines in the sun
‘Cause someday I’ll recall this day
The boy that used to say: “hold on”

Being alone seemed worth all pennies
But I’ve grown up with folks around
The years taught me that you can’t be both
distraction and surprise in a fight

I can hear the bear’s bellow
as he starts fishing the shallow
I am captured in the dirt and mumble:
“Will I survive when the bear is hungry?”
But someday I’ll rewrite this story
About some place filled with glory
It shines in the sun

So I take a breath and I dive under,
I swim ashore and believe in wonders
I start a fight on the edge
And I take a breath, he pushes me under
As I fight back I start to wonder:
Can I ever win this clash?

Will I some way recall this day
The boy that used to say: “hold on”?
