Preview Lyrics to One of John Hosking’s Songs

As promised we’re sharing the lyrics to one of John’s fan-favorite songs. Every Day is certainly one of my favorites. As a narrative writer myself I loved learning that John wrote this song inspired by reading the book Mink River by Brian Doyle. Anyone who’s read that novel will immediately see some lovely thematic connections below.

John mentioned so aptly on his Kickstarter campaign description page, “Everything starts with the Poetry and the Music, connecting the two.”

Enjoy the poetry of this one!

Every Day
by John Hosking

Tears of laughter, Tears of soul
Deep as an echo, Smart as an old crow
Laughter of love, Light as the sunlight
Deep as your eyes, Strong as the tide

Every moment, every lifetime,
every day on this ever spinning world.

Pain to pleasure, Loss to gain,
We fumble daily, Through the muddy and mundane.
Hopes and lessons, Lies and confessions,
Dreams and goals, Quests and questions.

Every moment, every lifetime,
every day on this ever spinning world.

Time can bend, Time can spin
Always ending, Only to begin again.
Laughter for life, Tears for living
Both for giving… and forgiving.

Every moment, every lifetime,
every day on this ever spinning world.
