‘Someone’s Said It Better’ – a song for Kim.

Yesterday, I sat and wrote these words.

Someone’s Said It Better

I don’t fear for tomorrow
In the same old way
I plan for my next moment
And getting through the day

Someone’s said it better
Than I ever could
Whatever way it ended
It ended as it should

I know that you were needed
Wherever you are now
But it doesn’t stop me thinking
About why, or where, or how


Funny, just two weeks ago
The Good Lord took you home
This the first time in near four years
I’ve felt quite so alone


He knows just what He’s doing
And I know that He’s right
But still, I hope you’re with me
Somewhere out there tonight


Today, I found that a fellow participant in February Album Writing Month (normally it’s something I enjoy doing each February, this year it’s pretty much just a distraction) had recorded a demo of it, which can be heard here

It’s just a simple remembrance.
