Author Biography


one part of me just wants to tell you everything
one part just needs the quiet
and if i'm lonely here,
i'm only here
and on the telephone
you offer reassurance

i will not take these things for granted
i will not take these things..

how can i hold the part of me that only you can carry
needs a strength i haven't found
but if it's frightening,
i'll bare the cold
and on the telephone
you offer warm asylum

i'm listening
flowers in the garden
laughter in the hall
children in the park

i will not take these things for granted
i will not take these things for granted
i will not take these things for granted
i will not take these things,

anymore...

to crawl inside the wire
fills something in me
to feel this accepting
that it is lonely here
but not alone
and on the telephone
you offer visions dancing

i'm listening
music in the bedroom
laughter in the hall
dive into the ocean
singing by the fire
running through the forest
standing in the wind
and rolling canyons

i will not take these things for granted
i will not take these things for granted
i will not take these things for granted
i will not take these things,

anymore..

i will not take these things for granted
flowers in the garden
i will not take these things for granted
laughter in the hall
i will not take these things for granted
children in the park
i will not take these things for granted
dive into the ocean
i will not take these things for granted
standing in the wind
i will not take these things for granted
the rolling canyons

-Song by Glen Phillips, "I Will Not Take These Things For Granted"
