Different Now 

©2000 Andrew Calhoun, unrecorded 

Open your eyes, walk on your feet 
Same old world, same old street 
Same old body for praise and sign 
Same as yours, same as mine 
Flow on asleep, flow on awake 
Code of a riddle that none can break 
Core of a story no tongue can sing 
A secret raised on weary wings 

And God knows how, since God knows when 
It's been what it is, been what it's been 
But it's gonna be different now 

If you could speak, if you could grieve, 
It's all that you can do to breathe 
Each day a case of open shut 
And wake another day, to what 
I walk alone, you walk alone 
As all together walk alone 
By morning light, all are made known 
In falling shadow, all is one 

And God knows how, since God knows when 
It's been what it is, been what it's been 
But it's gonna be different now
