all day I heard poems

all day i heard poems
and i tried to let go
of the grammar that was too hard
to pass through the radio
i tried to write songs
and it never went well
my brother gave me
a song writing book
i knew it was just that
and I had work to do
i couldn’t just write songs
i had poems to write too
i worked my way up
to the softest verse i could write
it was a pleasure to be this
if i could be this indeed

today is the greatest
day of echo
today is the greatest
day of echo
i tried to wake up
in the days of echo
and today is the greatest
day of echo
i tried to wake up
in the days of echo
and today is the greatest
day of echo

we had all day to try and find the sky
it got lost when a rectangle found our eye
yesterday i saw the sun
it was like it was the first time
just what is that that lights up our day
so many people that have so much to say
we write with pianos that have every key on them
it takes a moment to find this
and then it never lets go
they came and they fought me
and i showed them who i was
they never acted like they fought me
because i had a special touch
every day is a day that i can write a song
i just think that it’s special
that you think you do no wrong

today is the greatest
day of echo
today is the greatest
day of echo
i tried to wake up
in the days of echo
and today is the greatest
day of echo
i tried to wake up
in the days of echo
and today is the greatest
day of echo

if we could be this
would we be this
what if we could be this
today

i started writing at 18
notebooks filled with nothing but obscenities
i went to school as tradition
was how i found my way
i did all my homework
and no one ever knew why
they said algebra wasn’t important
but to me it’s a tool that helps me by
i mastered calculus with the drawing of a curve
this tangent was tethered
to god’s spoken word
you people are heartless
and you paid me to sing
i stand on this stage
wondering about the gifts you bring
i saw the matrix
and it just didn’t sink in well
i know our elders created tools
and they children don’t know how to spell
i never read harry potter
and i don’t care
how much cash you have in the bank
because at any moment i can craft a masterpiece
and do just fine thank you
