A Lot More Living

by Kevin Stokley

lyrics

It hit me in the middle of a conversation
With the guy in the line at the Shell station
Talking bout the weather or whatever we were talking about
He was covered in tattoo revelations
His left arm said “life’s what you make it”
It simple but it got the gears in my head turnin around
And I thought why not start right now

I’m gonna circle that sun a lot more different
Get the boat out, do a little more fishing
A little more slow dancing in the kitchen
Spinning ‘round the checkered board floor
Gonna search my soul, do a little digging
And the unturned stone, I’m gonna flip it
With every bit of life that I’ve been given
Make a little time for a lot more living

When I hit the red light it was perfect timing
To do a little re-prioritizing
Sorting through what matters and what doesn’t really matter at all
I crossed out all of my reservations
Excuses ain’t nothing but limitations
The windshield’s bigger than the rearview after all

I’m gonna circle that sun a lot more different
Get the boat out, do a little more fishing
A little more slow dancing in the kitchen
Spinning ‘round the checkered board floor
Gonna search my soul, do a little digging
And the unturned stone, I’m gonna flip it
With every bit of life that I’ve been given
Make a little time for a lot more living

That clock ain’t slowing down
So I thought why not start right now

I’m gonna circle that sun a little bit different
Call up an old friend, do a little reminiscing
Spend a little time on my guitar
Picking out the truth in these old three chords
