Music and Lyrics by Porter Smith (ASCAP)


A sidelong, backward glance
A headlong, downward dive
And I am still alive, still going on
With deepest dark descent
Despite the midday sun
In spite of all, I heed the beck and call

My stubborn soul and shoes
As ponderous as stone
And I am here alone, still going on
Without an end in sight
And night within, beyond
The light of whose shone stars I stand to lose

If to gamble, then to play
If to stumble, then to fall
If to stand at the bottom, then to fly
