Music: The Polyphonic Spree – Light & Day/Reach for the Sun

by Bob Schwartz

It’s never easy to find the right music, especially if the moment is sad and frustrating, where if hope is the thing with feathers, as Emily Dickinson says, it seems not to be perched but rather to have flown away.

There is plenty of upbeat music, but that isn’t enough, not the whole story. Sometimes you need something that just hits the spot—the place where you can suspend shade and pragmatism in favor of joy and celebratory naiveté, even for just three minutes. It’s going to be alright because it already is alright. Right now.

Thank you Polyphonic Spree.

Light & Day/Reach for the Sun

Light and day is more than you’ll say
Because all
My feelings are more
Than I can let by
Or not
More than you’ve got
Just follow the day
Follow the day and reach for the sun

You don’t see me flying to the red
One more you’re done
Just follow the seasons and find the time
Reach for the bright side
You don’t see me flying to the red
One more you’re nuts
Just follow the day
Follow the day and reach for the sun
