Sentimental Fool

(Learn to Walk on Coals)

o

o

You are so hard to fathom

Yet so easy to get to know

Sentimental and deep as a chasm

Ever-waiting for your valley to show

o

Will you ever let your fears go?

So you can let your love in?

Bitten many times - heal so slow

But you still find time to make me grin

o

Afraid of the damage of sin

You tend to seek and hide

Different from all the rest of them

Your eyes look as if they've laughed and cried

o

Are you just a sentimental fool?

When you're sure, you're unstoppable

But fear and doubt save and grave you

I guess I'll just have to learn how to walk on coals

o

How can you be so open-minded?

Yet so stubborn when you choose wisdom?

Could use more focus but you're multi-sighted

How do you maintain your multi-discipline discipline?

o

Curiosity of a child keeps your eyes from dim

Still have a shadow, but at least it's leashed

You are creating your own hymn

Incredibly both teacher and teached

o

Are you just a sentimental fool?

When you're sure, you're unstoppable

But fear and doubt save and grave you

I guess I'll just have to learn how to walk on coals

o

You bridge the gap between making it up as you go along

And looking to others to learn what you are here to do

Let me help you shed those demons and your past

Let me know you so I can help you know who you are

And more importantly who you can become

o

Sentimental fool

Wise wonderer

Simplifier or complicator

Will anyone ever truly know you?

o

Walk on coals, I gotta

I have to learn how to walk on coals

Have to see that the fire of you is actually warmth

Risk the flames and the fear of pain

Walk the coals; there is enough to gain

That I have to lose my doubts, no refrain

I loose my shoes and clear my fears

Can I be in the moment?

All that's left is to take the first step

And never stop, for a moment's thought

Will burn right through my soles

When I'd rather have our souls burn together

My gentle loving sentimental soul
