Girl, you’re not a lion tamer

so leave the lions well alone.

When you realize the danger

a lion poses kept at home…

…you will hit the ground running

while I put on my running shoes

I might not be faster than a lion

but I am faster than you.

Girl, we are not lion tamers

but we face lions now and then.

Although I do not try to tame one

girl, our future will depend

I might not be a lion tamer, but

I’ve got time on my side.

Where you are now I’ve once been myself

now it’s your turn to decide.


from The Great Pacific Northwest, released April 25, 2015

He keeps his eyes closed on stage, because these moments are for giving. To you.
