Most meaningful lyrics, chorus edited for a shorter post

The wheel is turning and you can't slow down,
You can't let go and you can't hold on,
You can't go back and you can't stand still,
If the thunder don't get you then the lightning will.

Won't you try just a little bit harder,
Couldn't you try just a little bit more?
Won't you try just a little bit harder,
Couldn't you try just a little bit more?

Round, round robin run round, got to get back to where you belong,
Little bit harder, just a little bit more,
A little bit further than you gone before.

Small wheel turn by the fire and rod,
Big wheel turn by the grace of God,
Every time that wheel turn 'round,
Bound to cover just a little more ground.

Seems to sum up my life for me pretty darn perfectly

real day job inspiration

don't waste your breath to save your face when you have done your best. when even more is asked of you, fate will decide the rest.
just want the cup but chicken to race
work hard in the daytime...sure get stoned at night!

IF THE LYRIC FITS..........

i have found that there is almost a dead song for every situation you may find yourself in. lots of songs about card games, judges and jail, hope-ESPECIALLY HOPE, and if you really think about it, you can apply certain songs to certain instances. go on give it a try

nothing left to do but smile, smile, smile

Words

Like Soul Change said - see here how everything leads up to this day - I already heard John Lennon say 'nowhere you can be but where you're meant to be' and this clinched it for me - I was in the right place - everything was cool - big relief after ten years shite at school

Who is Albertson Deeprun Pink Hill?

Hey Tracie -
Either your posted song tittles was coincidence or you said God Bless Albertson Deeprun Pink Hill which is what most of the begining letters of your song tilttles spelt. Is this sort of a Bertha>Greatest>Promised i.e. BGP type of thing or Im I reading inbetween the lines?

Start of it all

For me, I remember sitting up late one night as a teenager with a friend of mine (watching tracers and the shapes of smoke). We were listening to some radio and then popped a tape in that I had of American Beauty. Untill this point I wasn't sold on the Dead but, the lyrics to Ripple came around and I listened close. When Jerry sang "Let there be songs to fill the air" it all made sense, my moment of Zen. Thank God I remembered the next day.
