Grant Bentley: Music

Imaging is Everything

(Grant Bentley)
Written by Grant Bentley
A tribute to the adventurer/photographer Galen Rowell, whose work profoundly inspired my love of outdoor landscapes since my days at UC Berkeley. I have created a music video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7LAIEiuW0Kw) that combines this song with my own photographic images of mountain environments I have visited around the world.
Poetic cameraman
You passed me when you ran
That trail through the wilderness.
Without you knowin' me
You helped me really see
A way to follow my bliss.

CHORUS:
Imaging is everything.
Everything is imaging,
Imagining everything.
Everything is imaging the way you feel.
Imagining everything is real.

I always travel well
Each time you storytell.
Introduce me to them all.
High mountain villages,
Portraits on the pages
Touch the world both big and small.

REPEAT CHORUS

BRIDGE:
Home, home to the Range.
Picture a castle in the sage.
Last night we lost you in Bishop.

I'll build a cairn somewhere
Up in the mountains there
In a place that calls to me.
Gonna find a mountaintop
And let my cryin' stop
To hear you in the breeze.

REPEAT CHORUS (except "I" instead of "you")
Everything you ever showed is real.
