Lyrics of Simply Walking

When your mind is wound up as tight as a string,
and you want to get away and forget everything
and you are about to pop a mental fuse,
simply walking, can be a calming muse.

A micro vacation everyone can use.
With a couple of hours, and a good pair of shoes.
One step at a time just to start the motion.
Relax your mind with a little devotion.

Tune out the daily grind.
Tune in nature and you will find.
that sights and sounds are all around
and they're just waiting to be found.
Relax and enjoy the view
and you'll see things you never knew.
Rejuvenate your soul's desire
and feel the joy that you aspire.

Critters running on the ground, up and down the trees,
answering to no one, just doing what they please.
Birds in a symphony, butterflies and crickets too.
A rain bursting cloud ending to a sky of blue.

And, in the sky above flies a silver bird.
People going nowhere and feeling absurd.
But here on the ground I am aware
that I'm simply walking without a care.

Tune out the daily grind.
Tune in nature and you will find.
that sights and sounds are all around
and they're just waiting to be found.
Relax and enjoy the view
and you'll see things you never knew.
Rejuvenate your soul's desire
and feel the joy that you aspire.
