  1. The Puzzle

I was watching my mind, getting distance from all the planning, worrying, hoping nervously things would all work out, all that. We are always plotting how to keep the ship on course. How sweet it is to just “let it be”, but how hard to do! I don’t care if the boat might go over a waterfall some day – right now, it’s calm seas. I might as well appreciate having a hand to hold and the woods to walk in.

Lyrics

Life’s a big puzzle that’ll never be done
Filling all the space in my mind
Solving problem after problem ain’t a whole lotta fun
Sucking every minute of my time
Life’s a big puzzle that I can’t figure out
A shifting line in the sand
Wasting my time tryin' to figure it out
Think I just want to hold your hand

And take a walk into the woods
Try to remember life is good
We’ll leave the puzzle behind
No telling what we might find

At the very moment when the answer is near
The puzzle's changed all around
At the very minute when you're in the clear
Another dream crashes to the ground
Trying so hard just to work it out
Hoping it’ll all come out fine
Then you lose some pieces and the bottom drops out
Send you right back to the starting line

Let’s take a walk into the woods
And try to remember life is good
We’ll leave the puzzle behind
No telling what we might find

Sisyphus with your boulder
You’re just getting older
Solve one problem then there's two
Another impossible task for you
When you gonna walk away?

Life’s a big puzzle that I can’t figure out
A shifting line in the sand
Wasting my time tryin' to figure it out
Think I just want to hold your hand

We'll take take a walk into the woods
Try to remember life is good
We’ll leave the puzzle behind
No telling what we might find
