lyrics

Written by Wilfred Galila

what comes up must come down
a smile into a frown
a strange force of gravity that tugs at you and me

and when your boat on the river is sinking low
the stars in your eyes have lost their glow
and down is the only way to go
just be and enjoy the flow OH OH!

yesterday has gone away
tomorrow aint here today
its just the truth of reality that happens to you and me

and when some silly scary nightmare has replaced your dream
you're weighted down and stuck in between
your friends pretty faces have all turned green
just be and enjoy the scene

stay with how you feel
know that it is real
let go and face your fears
with all the love in your heart
you will find the way

all good things must come to an end
one day we will all be dead
its just the truth of reality that happens to you and me

and when all the silly thoughts running through your head
that keep you everyday from getting out of bed
just know it aint real but just an illusion
a bad case of mental pollution

what is wrong could be right
think of it hard as you might
a good dose of reality is good for you and me

and when all the signs proclaim that the end is near
everyone ends up living in fear
all thats left to do is come out and play
for all we have left is today

stay with how you feel
know that it is real
let go and face your fears
with all the love in your heart
you will find the way

hey hey hey
you'll find the way

about

The Family of Man San Francisco, California

A foggy blend of aural vistas, earthy rhythms, and enchanting lullabies from the northern woods that lie near the cusp between land and sea over yonder.

A heady mix of folk, blues, and rock blended with a touch of everything in between, their music can be best described as whimsical, poignant, visceral, magical, somber, joyful, and downright real.
