  1. Point Of View

From the recording Point Of View

   One of those tunes that came from a personal place . . . and not every song has to have a specific meaning that has to be shared . . .

POINT OF VIEW 
( R. P. Maddox © - 2014)                               
 
If I just had the notes to play . . . if the right words would come my way
Would it make a difference . . . make it right ?
If I could show my heart to you and be forgiven for being human
Would it all still seem so black and white ?
 
Life can look so different - depends on where you're standing . . .
And time has taught me lessons about things I once thought I knew
Now I'm only sure of a few things that endure
The rest depends upon my point of view
 
Some times my life seems like a play, I have no written lines to say
I have to make them up - I get no cues
The plot is set, the script's a secret - if I win, they don't let me keep it
I just never know how much I lose . . . .
 
Limping through the darkness, chasing echoes through the shadows
Just trying to make things right and wondering how I'll make it through
For now I'm only sure of a few things that endure
The rest depends upon your point of view
 
Adam's curse - to wander from my home . . .
Lord, this road I'm on's so long . . .
 
I don't know what the future holds - I've given up on plans and goals
They never seemed to work out anyway . . .
But the best things that I've done are raising children of their own
So part of me will go on . . . come what may . . .
 
Memories just like fun-house mirrors - distorted gross reflections
Wounds and scars have hardened, and softened attitudes
But now I'm only sure of a few things that endure
The rest depends upon their point of view
But now I'm only sure of a few things that endure
The rest depends upon a point of view
