Ricochet of Sorrow

By Jay Dashefsky




VERSE 1:


Struggling up the hill but it won't

be long


Before tomorrow's yesterday is gone


Walking down your hallway and then

move on


Want to see a new beginning and

ending.


CHORUS:


Fleeting glimpses of hope

That dissolve like bars of soap

Disregard the slippery slope

But can you see through the smoke?



VERSE 2:


Have your share of the carousel's

rounds but then


Realize that the revolutions never

end


Taking in the scenery all depends

On what you're willing to accept.


(Chorus)



VERSE 3:


Struggling up the hill but you won't

be done


When you'll arrive at a place that

you started from


Ample time, but still it's borrowed


Too short to spend in the ricochet of

sorrow.
