Rodney Crowell completly summed up the day.

The hour is early
The whole world is quiet
A beautiful morning’s about to ignite
I’m ready for danger
I’m ready for fire
I’m ready for something to lift me up higher

Life’s been good, I guess
My ragged old heart’s been blessed
With so much more than meets the eye
I’ve got a past I won’t soon forget
You ain’t seen nothing yet
I’m still learning how to fly

It’s the dreams that die hard
With old habits to break
You can’t let down your guard
When there’s so much at stake
I’m halfway to heaven, halfway to hell
But I might roll a seven
You never can tell

Life’s been good it’s true
When I’m feeling just like new
The same old rules need not apply
I’ve got a past full of sticks and stones
And a good feeling in my bones
I’m still learning how to fly

I wanna go faster
I don’t wanna slow down
I don’t wanna get off of this merrygoround
I wanna be reckless
I wanna be vain
I wanna make love like a runaway train

Life’s been good I said
I’m 10,000 miles ahead
The day I rest is the day I die
I’ve got a past like a broken wing
But you ain’t seen anything
I’m still learning how to fly
I’m still learning how to fly
