Lyrics

Atlas Left his Burden
©2012 Thomas C. Webber

Atlas took off and left his burden on your shoulder
the day the world lost its sheen and your vision grew older
It’s so tempting to cling to those scenes in your rear view mirror
Just breath –
Just breath and smile –
And know –
Your treasure is in the NOW.

Time is a river that carries us forward
It empties itself into this pool we call the present
You’ll drown if you jump and try to swim upstream
Lay back and let it carry you to Beyond Your Wildest Dream

There’s a time for grasping and a time to let it go
There’s a time for laughter and a time for sorrow
Yes the past will catch up when you round that next bend
You’ll find that nothing’s ever lost cuz that’s past is in the end.

There’s never been a golden flower -- that didn’t start as a seed
And those furrows on your face now came from giving and from greed
Just press on forward. Don’t wallow in eddies of regret.
Just breath –
Just breath and smile –
And know –
Your treasure is in the NOW.

At last you let go of that thing on your shoulder
Though your world lost some sheen and your vision grows older
You’ve discovered the truth that the Child’s the Father of the Man.
Just breath –
Just breath and smile –
And know –
Your treasure is in the NOW.

Just breath –
Just breath and smile –
And know –
Your treasure is in the NOW.
