Nate Maingard: Everything Is Not What It Appears

Nate full quote: “I’m a simple man who feels a lot about the world. I write about that in my songs. I’m an unintentional philosopher, a hopeful romantic, a modern troubadour. I think deeply about the world around me and tell the stories which resonate with me. I hope you enjoy the stories I bring and I wish you much joy in the listening.”

Nate Maingard: Everything Is Not What It Appears Lyrics:
Twilight fell upon the darkening road
I found myself again alone
Street lights went out by one by two by three
And I revelled in the shadows that had grown
Yes I revelled in the darkness I had known

I’d been there and back again so many times I knew
That the dance I danced was anything but new
I had seen him watching me that old man in the moon
And I thought hey well what else should I do
So I danced until the dance was through

Wrestling in the desert of a broken afternoon
Makes me wish I’d packed my wrestling costume
Yes the jester is all dressed up as if he was a loon
Have you listened much to what it is he’s doing
There such method in his madness and his tune

Traveller been travelling for oh so many years
He’s worn right through his effervescent fears
Listening to everything he treads so soft and hears
The world whispers softly in his ears
Saying, “everything is not what it appears.”
