Ellis Paul

Slingshot

from The Storyteller's Suitcase

The fog is up

The moon is rising

Laying a blanket of white

On the ocean for you

Are you living in the moment now?

Two lane highway

In California

Beautiful woman beside you

Scolding you

Are you living in the moment now?

The world could use a hero

Cause the lunatics

Are running the shop

I’ll be your one man army

I’ve got a stone and a sling shot

We could build a castle

Or a cabin on this very spot

With a view of the ocean

And all the money

We don’t got

We don’t got

Where do you go

When your faith gets weary

To money, to God

Or to chaos theory

I’m asking you

Are you living in the moment now?

I like the way you feel

Beside me

You color the way I see

Beauty
