Seasons are shifting
The weather changing
The air feels thicker and the horizon farther away
Not too far back I was dancing in the rain
Now I'm soaked through and I'm starting to feel the weight

You know what they say
It's just not the way it used to be when burdens were lighter
The struggle so much simpler
Life required so much less of me

So I figured it all comes down to here and now
Where little makes sense but it's enough to prove
That every disappointment
The lessons learned the little things shared and earned
He worked it out so they'd be stepping stones

Reality settles in I'm realizing my place in all of this
A lifetime could've gone by
Lord knows I've been blind
It took me a while but He's been putting the pieces just right

Cause from the very first hello at the start of the unknown
To the heavy heart on sorrows lonely road
It's these little things that go along way
I'm finally seeing the colors in the gray
