about

When I was young my parents gave me a gift, a book titled “A boy called Slow”. No doubt a loving jab at the pace I already seemed to be living life. Trouble With Time is about those mysterious experiences and uncanny perceptions of time, coming to terms with my inabilities to perceive or correctly manage my own, and how this dynamic effects relationships or personal growth.
I paused writing this to search “temporal”, and found that in addition to meaning “relating to time”, the PRIMARY definition is “relating to worldly as opposed to spiritual affairs; secular.” …which is fascinating, because this infers that time is of that which is the opposite of spiritual. Regular. Worldly. So although many of us constantly strive to understand and align ourselves with the spiritual realm, our empirical experiences are lockstep with time. Therein lies the trouble.

lyrics

i wanna go your way
and i wanna share some space babe
cuz I’ve seen this before
and it’s gonna be good

but trouble has found me
and I’m frozen in the morning
it’s all phasing
right where she stood

sometimes the future seems so far away
you know i have trouble with time baby
i’d like to give you some of mine
but my hands don’t tick like they should

as the stone that always rolled along
watched others roll on instead:
“the moss is alright, roll it up tho”

there’s a joy in always facing front
but the moment seems
like it’s all too often the same
when you’re never looking back

so don’t you walk on by
for once in my life
i’ll be living in the moment

And I wanna go your way
With all this time to waste babe
Stepping into
A better yesterday

sometimes the future seems so far away
you know i have trouble with time baby
i’d like to give you some of mine
but my hands don’t tick like they should
no my hands don’t tick like they should
no my hands don’t tick like they should
