Story behind the song
This was recorded in my home studio from 10/2000 - 1/2001 using Cool Edit Pro. I wrote the song about 14 years ago while I was living in a cabin in the woods of the Upper Pennisula of Michigan.
Lyrics
I've heard it said before by those much kinder than I That what seperates a wiseman from a fool Is what he sees when he looks into the sky What he sees when he looks into the sky One might see a big space While another might long for the moon Another might see only unreachable stars But a fool looks back down at his shoes And a wise man sees his own backyard A wise man always lives in the stars A wise man wants to re-write the book And it's thrown into the fool's fire Without even a look Somewhere close by and yet so far away Is a place where we came from that we may see again someday A place of more breadth and more depth than we'll know And a fool has never seen where a wise man will go And a wise man sees his own backyard A wise man always lives in the stars A wise man wants to re-write the book And it's thrown into the fool's fire Without even a look
