What are words?

What is the story?

Do I tell you

of the places I have been?

The things that I have seen.

The people I have known.

Do I tell you

of the dreams

that I have had?

The things that make me laugh,

or fears that I have felt

while all alone.

Do I tell you of

the heroes I have met?

The records I have set,

or memories

I’m trying to forget.

Do I tell you

of lonely roads,

the great unknown,

or lies that I’ve outgrown?

Stories come

and stories go.

I know you’ve got

a lifetime of your own.

For today,

my storytelling’s done.

Let me sit back

and hear you tell one.
