all at once*

All at Once

All at once
The world can overwhelm me
There’s almost nothing that you could tell me
That could ease my mind

Which way will you run?
When it’s always all around you
And the feeling lost and found you again
A feeling that we have no control

Around the sun
Some say it’s going to be the new hell
Some say it’s still too early to tell
Some say it really ain’t no myth at all

We keep asking ourselves
Are we really strong enough?
There’re so many things
That we got too proud of

I want to take the preconceived
Out from underneath your feet
We could shake it off
And instead we’ll plant some seeds
We’ll watch them as they grow
And with each new beat
From your heart the roots grow deeper
The branches, well they reach for what?

Nobody really knows
But underneath it all
There’s this heart all alone
What about when it’s gone?
It really won’t be so long
Sometimes it feels like a heart
Is no place to be singing from at all

There’s a world we’ve never seen
There’s still hope between the dreams
The weight of it all could blow away with a breeze
But if you’re waiting on the wind
Don’t forget to breathe
Because as the darkness gets deeper
We’re sinking so we reach for love

At least something we can hold
But I’ll reach to you
From where time just can’t go
What about when it’s gone?
It really won’t be so long
Sometimes it feels like a heart
Is no place to be singing from at all

What a delightful storyboard you have put together here . . it is so rewarding to sometimes see photography taken further than just the image. Very pleasing.
