about

This little ditty is about a day in the life of a speck of dust, with no ordinary life.

lyrics

you're just a speck
no one can see
flung on the wind
with the birds and the trees

glistening leaf you rest upon
falling flora brings you down

you land in a field
atop a daisy
a girl comes along

plucking loves or loves me not
petals fall one by one

at least you landed
on somebody loves me
twirling down in the breeze

still you wonder what might've been
had you been on the last petal to cling

you hit a dandelion
gone to seed
fluff-puffy landing

like the room full of pillows
on "i dream of jeannie"

blown into the blue
on the breath of a boy

floating up on the warmth
looking down upon a smile

you dance with the wind
the one who loves you
flying up to the sky

your best friend in the world
together by and by

jean mann's newest CD is lush, elegant, at times edgy
and above all else, compelling.
