Patterns

Written 7-30-2000

Verse 1:
patterns within patterns connecting to me
watching and wondering about the patterns I see
where have they come from and what do they mean
how much am I changing and how much goes unseen

Verse 2:
patterns within patterns a latticework life
a move in this direction the pattern fits right
whatever becomes of the path I don't choose
often there is no clear win or lose

Refrain 1:
changing old patterns takes some doing
certainly not a one day affair
old patterns break resisting change
and others disappear into thin air

Verse 4:
patterns within patterns I watch and I learn
moving and growing and stopping in turn
so many directions are open to me
only a few I will ever see

Refrain 2:
it's just like me to go through this one more time
so like me to misunderstand 
It's just like me to see everyone else's fate
while completely ignoring what's here in my hand

Verse 4.

Refrain 1.

patterns within patterns connecting to me
watching and wondering about the patterns I see
