Jack of Many

lyrics

Has loving too many things
Fractured my soul
And left me a jack of many?
Master of none
Did I pass up the one
Or is searching it's own reward?

I've been 12 years eastbound
9 years earth bound
And 2 years been walking alone
My friends and my family
They mean so much to me
I hope they'll all be there if I ever get home

If I were more a single minded man
Would I be less a singe searching man?

Jesus and Coltrane
Boarded and airplane
Set out for the big city lights
The things that they saw there
Good people they met there
Enough to lie a man awake and wondering at night

A simple song is all I want to sing
But this old world's a many splendored thing

Has loving to many things
Fractured my soul
And left me a jack of many
Master of none
Did I pass up the one
Or is searching it's own reward?
