Miranda Hope: Music

Ice Storm

(Miranda Hope/Mack Starks)
Mm the future, mm the past.
This is somebody’s first time
and somebody else’s last.
It’s all brand new
It’s as old as the hills.
And I could survive in the woods with my skills
And this TV and A/C and these prescription refills.

There’s a cold wind blowing, cold wind near.
An ice storm comin’ child, an ice storm here.

So much food, I can’t get full.
This dried out thirst is insatiable.
Every warm breeze gives me a chill.
I’m gonna eat this chicken I couldn’t possibly kill.
‘Cause I got the need but I don’t have the will.

So damn crowded, I can’t find a soul.
Everyone’s busy, not one with a goal.
We got more people living than have ever died.
I’d like to take them all for a ride,
I’d like to bring them all inside.

They said follow your heart, well my heart got me here.
They said go with your gut, well I went and got stuck.
They said build it and they will come, well my building’s come undone.
With everything to lose, and nothing to gain,
I’ll take a little more freedom, a little less pain.

Everyone I meet is a foul weather friend.
Over’s rolling over and over again.
I remember the future, better than the past.
See this is my first time, this is my last.
See this is my first time, this is my last.
