Oh Sweet Possibility Days

Yesterday as I stalked …. I mean checked in on Hailey’s snapchat story, I was stopped dead in my tracks. Where I normally see her beautiful red lipstick smile, I saw this:


That is my lovely 15 year old. Rocking a plaid button up (and Converse…I just happen to know this part) and a quote from a song. Ahhhhh but it’s not just any song. This quote is from, “Possibility Days.”

I know, I know… I’m taking forever to make my point. That’s because this point, deserves time to settle in the air, like the smell of snow. It blanketed me in a full hearted smile for the rest of the day. Even now as I write this, I’m glowing. 

Possibility Days you see, are Days captured by none other than, The Counting Crows. I see her, in this image… leaning against the wall at school, headphones in, Converse on, and Counting Crows pouring into the mind of a soul that I helped make. This little person of mine, that’s transition so wonderfully into an adult, way… way… too quickly. 
 

Cheers little lady, maybe one day… we shall see them together!

Possibility Days:

It was a cold 3am at JFK

I guess you stayed ’cause you wanted to stay

We went from zero to everything all in a day

And then Kennedy took you away

I thought of a short
Robe that was keeping you warm

And the moments

That make up the light till you wake up

We sit on a swing and talk with the girl
She tells you she wanted to kiss you

And you know that the worst part of a good day

Is hearing yourself say goodbye

One more possibility day

Goes on, and on

I go west but your weather has changed
You’re just scared I’m mistaken for strange

When you want me to leave then

I start to believe I should stay

I’ve gotta get out of L.A.

It seems like the short days are over
‘Cause you don’t just don’t sleep in the daylight

So I don’t sit up nights

I lay on my back on top of the hill and your body

Is breaking the sky ’cause you’re shaking

And the worst part of a good day
Is knowing it’s slipping away

That’s one more possibility day

That is gone

We were waiting for winter this year
But you came and it never appeared

Me and you we know too many reasons

For people and season that pass

Like they weren’t even here

Now living in smiles is better you say
We carry the burdens of all of our days

Just so scared that you’ll leave

You’re scarred that I’ll stay

It’s an impossibility day

And we only saw half of the ballet
I said good night, good bye

Seems like a good thing

So you know it’s a good lie

You can run out of choices

And still hear a voice in your head

When you’re lying in bed

And it says that the best part of a bad day

Is knowing it’s okay

The color of everything changes
The sky rearranges it’s shade

And the smile doesn’t fade

Into the phone call

And one bad decision we’ve made

And the worst part of a good day
Is the one thing you don’t say

And you don’t know how but you

Wish there was some way so

And you pull down the shades
And you shut out the light

Because somehow you mixed up

Good bye and good night

And you one thing you won’t say
Is everyone knows possibility days

Are impossible

It just feels wrong, so wrong

Still you’re gone, long gone
