On the table there’s an open book
On the page there’s a detailed drawing
And on the drawing is the name I took
i would have never thought of that, relating me to you. not because i dont try, because i do. i know im not easy to get along with, and i must seem like a grumpy old bastard most of the time. but i try. i think im a little more relaxed now that ive got some things worked out in my head. ive realized that most of the things i used to get uptight about were only because of my own insecurities. now that i know its ok to take time for myself when i need it and just walk away from everything. it not easy to sleep alone every night, but you already know that all too well as i do. if i can wish something in common for both of us, its that we could each find someone to fill in the spaces inside and be happy with.
but im getting off the track. thank you for what you said is all i really came here for. thanks. but remember that everything you said to me can be reflected back and shines from you also.
What do I hold in my hand?
Blade or flower?
The pain in my head
Worse with every hour.
What’s that noise?
I hear something coming on the wind.
The sound of a different drum.
I have been, uninspired. but tonite i was walking home late and something just struck me out of the blue. i just seemed to realize how strange the world has become compared to what it used to be.
My father was born in 1922. He could remember being taken to school in a horse and cart. my how technology has changed the world. i work with computers every day. i doubt that back in 1997, the year my dad died, he would have even known what a computer was, or how to even turn one on. i feel like a link to the past. like an imposter in the technological world. my children find the idea of record players and only 3 channels on the tv foreign concepts, and that was really not that long ago. Personally i like computers and listening to music on mine, watching movies and every thing that has come with it. but, sometimes, late at night, like tonite, walking home, i somehow wish i was riding home in a horse drawn carriage, like my father did, so many years ago. when the world was simple, and a man knew his place and worth, by the work of his hands, and the stars and moonlight to guide him home at night.
Who kicked a hole in the sky so the heavens would cry over me?
Who stole the soul from the sun in a world come undone at the seams?
Let there be love – Let there be love
I hope the weather is calm as you sail up your heavenly stream
Suspended clear in the sky are the words that we sing in our dreams
Let there be love – Let there be love – Let there be love – Let there be love
Come on baby blue
Shake up your tired eyes
The world is waiting for you
May all your dreaming fill the empty sky
But if it makes you happy
Keep on clapping
Just remember I’ll be by your side
And if you only go, it’s gonna pass you by
from the best band in the world. isnt that beautiful
