Fold Into Yourself

from Song A Day: The Album by Jonathan Mann

supported by


one thing sometimes seems like another
upon close inspection
a curse is a blessing
so you fold into yourself

sometimes you just got no idea
the meaning seems hidden
but really it isn't
so you fold into yourself

you search in the faces of the people you know
you feel like Magellan
but their faces aren't telling
so you fold into yourself

you think maybe you'll find it some place exotic
in an old elevator
or in a dinosaur crater
so you fold into yourself

you start to get worried, you start to panic
you let out your breath
and use what's left
to fold into yourself

but you wake from a dream all groggy confused
and the hand that you're holding
means you are unfolding

you found it in yourself
it was small and insecure
but it begins to grow
and the doubts get fewer and fewer
