Right Reasons at the Time
written by Gary Marks © 2012 Marksland Entertainment

A child is born with the sun rising brightly
“Everything’s alright – as it’s always been.”
That’s the message sung by three birds at the doorstep
Til the falling rain begins

Oh, and he hears the voices
Warning him of troubles in the wind  
And for all the right reasons at the time
He leaves it all behind

And an old man sleeps as the sun is setting grayly
Memories of heartbreak and minor sins
Long forgotten sounds that beckoned from his doorstep
Life lived from outside in

Oh, and we hear the voices
Warning us of troubles in the wind
And for all the right reasons at the time
Three birds are left behind
This life.
