Painting Pictures of Egypt


 


I don’t want to leave here, I don’t want to stay


It feels like pinching to me, either way


And the places I long for the most


are the places where I’ve been —


they are calling out to me like a long lost friend


 


It’s not about losing faith, it’s not about trust


It’s about comfortable when you move so much


The place I was wasn’t perfect


but I had found a way to live,


and it wasn’t milk or honey but then neither is this


 


Chorus:


I’ve painting pictures of Egypt


Leaving what it lacks


The future feels so hard and I want to go back


But the places that used to fit me


Cannot hold the things I’ve learned


Those roads were closed off to me


while my back was turned


 


The past is intangible; I know it by heart


Familiar things are never easy to discard


And I was dying for some freedom


But now I hesitate to go


I am caught between the promise and the things I know


 


Back to Chorus


 


If it comes too quick I may not appreciate it


Is that the reason behind all this time and sand?


It it comes to quick I may not recognize it


Is that the reason behind all this time and sand?


 


## This song is dedicated to bunch of inspirational people who I met in Changsha. 


and also to those who live in the purpose of life, let me say this:


it’s not about where you want to be, but it’s about where you have to be…
