The Song of the Universe by Tom Hall

I can hear it now
A sound in my ear
It was just suddenly here
It's a kind of song, I think

Yesterday I was walking home
I can't exactly remember the time
But it was a beautiful sunset
When the song came into my mind

I thought it was a radio or something
Somewhere in the distance
But then it was clear
When it's volume erupted in my ear

My mind can't conceive of it's beauty
Or it's random simplicity
But the song blew me away
Into relative obscurity

It makes me feel good
Connected, do you know what I mean?
Not an individual but part of the whole
Part of a bigger better thing

I can still here it now
This song in my ear
It seems to be coming
From everywhere
