I've been fooled before
Looking down in the sand
The sunlight caught my eye
But it was just dirt in my hand
You're asking me to slow the water
Asking if I can
But the best that I can do
Is build a dam

There are many creeks that you could pan to find the ore
Many peaks that I could mine, but I don't want to any more
You can call me a fool for getting caught in the rain
You can call me a fool on a fool's errand
You can call me a fool for saying oh you're not that old
But honey please don't call me fool's gold

Something's on your mind
That can pull you away
One moment you're mine
But I can't tell if you'll stay
Save yourself for something else
So you don't go too deep
Keep something that's yours
And only yours to keep
Giving in to what you can't
Begin to control
All in all it's what you make
Of what you do not know

Let yourself let yourself let go of it
The moment the moment takes care of it
We'll find then we'll find that we belong
We'll find we've been here all along


from Exposition, released March 7, 2011
