This song was an attempt to write on a very spiritual theme while sitting on the beach at Grand Bend, Ontario, which is better known as a very physical place. A better name might be "Jimmy Buffet meets Jesus"


looking out across the water on reflections of the day
that hard to find peace of mind may be coming back my way
this summer breeze and seaside tease and waves that feel so fine
a stolen glance a second chance in the fullness of time

i fill my eyes with clear blue skies and feel the freedom in the air
i just spent next month’s rent i can’t bring myself to care
maybe now i’ve learned how to let go of what ain’t mine
now i’m one step closer to that fullness of time

but oh how many years it took
oh how many tears it took
lines i wrote that never seemed to rhyme
but there’s an end to looking back
there’s a new plan of attack
recent understanding of the fullness of time

the sound of wonder’s so loud i can’t hear my inner voice
but it keeps rolling through my head like i don’t have a choice
so i get to wondering if this voice is even mine
or do i hear the echoes of the fullness of time

some insist i’ve somehow missed the point of all this strife
messengers of misery who complicate my life
i think i’ll pass, no really please and thanks i’m doing fine
i just stumbled headlong into the fullness of time
