​A Beginning Song

This song is by The Decemberists and appears on the album What a Terrible World, What a Beautiful World (2015).

Let's commence to coordinate our sights
Get them square to rights
Get them square to rights

Condescend to calm this riot in your mind
Find yourself in time
Find yourself in time

And I am waiting, should I be waiting?
And I am wanting, should I be wanting?
When all around me
All around me

Document the world inside your skin
The tenor of your shins
The timbre of your limbs

Now commence to kick each brick apart
To center on your heart
Starting with your heart, bright heart

And I am waiting, should I be waiting?
And I am wanting, should I be wanting?
When all around me
When all around me
When all around me
When all around me
When all around me

And I am waiting, should I be waiting?
I am wanting, should I be wanting?
I am hopeful, should I be hopeful?
All around me
All around me

Is the sunlight, is the shadows
Is the quiet, is the work
Is the beating heart, is the ocean,
Is the boys, is you
My sweet love (my sweet love)
Oh my love (oh my love)

And the light, bright light
And the light, bright light
Bright light, bright light
It's all around me
It's all around me
It's all around me
It's all around me
All around me
