THAT'S HOW EVERY STORY STARTS
Erin Calabrese / Terry Radigan

80 miles an hour
Front door, full stop
Deep breath
Heart drops, door knocks
I’ve gotta find my place of peace
An open field, a rolling river, it’s where I cease
The touchstone between my finger and thumb
My touchstone so I don’t come undone

You might think this story’s free
But it cost me dearly (cost me dearly)
I get the get
But you don’t know how it’s given (how it’s given)
I’m just the taker
Wanting,
Hoping,
Praying
To be forgiven (to be forgiven)

The who, what, when, where, and why
I live by the Five Ws and sometimes I die
In a stranger's living room
Trying to find a way to be
That’s how every story,
Every story starts for me

I’ve gotta be clear
Be clear to be here
I’ve gotta take in
Take in their everything
If we get far enough down the road
We might get to the how
Then 'I' becomes 'we' and we’re in the moment now

You might think this story's free
But it cost me dearly (cost me dearly)
I get the get
But you don’t know how it’s given (how it’s given)
Cause I’m just a taker
Wanting,
Hoping,
Praying
To be forgiven (to be forgiven)

That's how every story
Every story starts for me
That’s where every road
Every road it leads
And there's no going back, there’s no pretend
This is a story that will never end

You might think this story's for free
But it cost me dearly (cost me dearly)
I get the get
But you don’t know how it’s given
Yeah, cause I’m just the taker
Wanting,
Hoping,
Praying
To be forgiven (to be forgiven)
Be forgiven (to be forgiven)
