Young Musicians Program (YMP) 2019 - Festival Week Composers Forum I

by The Walden School

Nothing Gold Can Stay Nature’s first green is gold, Her hardest hue to hold. Her early leaf’s a flower; But only so an hour. Then leaf subsides to leaf. So Eden sank to grief, So dawn goes down to day. Nothing gold can stay. -Robert Frost
Push Verse 1 Deep breaths in and out in and out Meditatin’ ain’t no easy route Requirin’ you’ve got some sort of grasp on mentality when we both know you don’t you don’t Look around these people are struggling Thy don’t know about life or anything so why was I elected to “fix this”? we don’t need to be Pre-chorus so hold on, therapist the light is comin’ They expect me to be perfect, but I’m only human Chorus ‘cause when the world starts spinning you’re gonna need a plan. ‘cause life isn’t grand, it gets challenging, And if I start spinning, too, I might not stop. So just keep pushin’ and pushin’ and pushin’ ‘till the drop. Verse 2 I think the world would be much better off without trouble like me I think the world is filled with better, better, better, better and there’s my problem I don’t know how to love me I’ve felt the wear and tear of giving my heart and getting it back I’ve learned to hate the man that ev’ryone else fears But I I just wanna be loved Chorus ‘cause when the world starts pushin’, you’re gonna need to fight. When the world takes your light and you’re all alone. And if I start pushing back, the pain won’t stop. So just keep hating and hating and hating til’ you’re forgot. Someone tell me why God’s silent if He’s even there. Chorus
