I woke up, it seemed
Not from a dream
To a time on the clock on the wall.
I turned on the 'puter
Said Hi to the Pooter (yes, that would be Puff)
And noticed my time was all wrong!
It's still dark outside
No sun for my eyes
Nothing has changed as that goes.
We change in November
Can't say I remember
Why did we let that old schedule go?
My days start in darkness
My heart, it still harkens
To the days when I slept way past dawn.
Summer, I miss you
I wish I could kiss you
But you flitter on past with a yawn.
Autumn is fleeting
A brief, windy meeting
Then winter sneaks in with her cold
This year I am warmer
Maybe a charmer?
I am definitely more bold.
So I'll keep with the season
Won't ponder more reasons
Why my clock has to change, today!
I will start my day early
And no, I won't worry
'Cause the sunshine, it is on its way.
I went to YouTube and looked up"Sunshine." This was the first song that came up. It's good.
He seems like an interesting guy. You can listen to his entire album here.
On December 13, 2011, Matisyahu posted a beardless picture of himself on Twitter, explaining on his website:No more Chassidic reggae superstar. Sorry folks, all you get is me...no alias.When I started becoming religious 10 years ago it was a very natural and organic process. It was my choice. My journey :to discover my roots and explore Jewish spirituality—not through books but through real life. At a certain point I felt the need to submit to a higher level of religiosity...to move away from my intuition and to accept an ultimate truth. I felt that in order to become a good person I needed rules—lots of them—or else I would somehow fall apart. I am reclaiming myself. Trusting my goodness and my divine mission.Get ready for an amazing year filled with music of rebirth. And for those concerned with my naked face, don’t worry...you haven’t seen the last of my facial hair."
