Still Trying

It was a day not so long ago,
filled with hope that all could be turned to gold,
And money wasn’t the goal,
It was all just to shine bright and bold
But dull isn’t that far off some notes

I don’t know,
I don’t know, a god dam thing,
About the colors I’ve been playing in an attempt to sing
About the chords I’m mixing in an attempt to paint
I don’t know,
I don’t know, a god dam thing
except that gelato tastes better with you than alone
(I always look forward to getting some)
And I fade to the cut-scene
where in the back she’s singing over me,
Oh my love, it’s not painful to walk
while she cringes to every step
Since my innocence flew away from me
And the goddess still comes in faith,
That after all I’ll still dance for free

Yes it was an evening painted in gemstones
under the crystal sky where an orb of light shone
and although we didn’t have much
it gave just enough to afford some special comfort
Because the real value of something is in what you see

I don’t know,
I don’t know, a god dam thing,
About the words I’ve been taking in an attempt to groove
About the steps I’m penning in an attempt to commune
I don’t know,
I don’t know, a god dam thing
Other than gelato tasting better with you than alone
(With or without you I’ll look forward to getting some)

I held the weight of water in my throat,
Put it down don’t carry this any longer – the lungs are strong

I’m not well off, but i’m moving forward and that’s better than most

I Always Liked The Light Show

I’m not much for staying quiet, the forces of nature know my mind is turning; and it must flow. I can not sit by the banks and hold all the water to my self. I’m not much for being pushed either. I’m patient – But that patience does has an end it seems. I never minded watching with some contemplation. I just took too long to churn the situation.

I lit the fuse about 20 seconds ago. I know I should have given a heads up, but I think you know the spark has been running. I’m not quite sure what it was, but we’ll see soon what I’ve set off.

When I’m in the dark,
When I’m in the dark my heart fails
A couple bumps, and I think I need a kilo;
So much weight I could push the scales –
Take my evening strolls to the chimeras’ lair.
Let’s skip to the full moon! It’s a short fair

And now I know what it is I am preparing for.
One night, when I awake at 3 A.M. unable to slip
back into dreams – I will look beside me, and there you will be
Sleeping peacefully near – and suddenly,
The madness of it all won’t seem so lonely.

Did you see the flash! There it is another one! What doom we saw and called it beauty!
I do remember all the times I let us slide, I have learned though now that there was never any time. No time to sit and watch. I had to taste you in the moment right before getting lost. Because in the blink of an eye it will all be gone. But dam it’s a hell of a show. Loud enough to keep the image vivid in your mind all the way home. And when we get there:

I’m going to change my galaxy
I’m going to paint a few things a bit closer, and some others further apart
I’m going to let all the colors run to where they want

When we we’re on fire, the heat didn’t really bother us.
Now it’s hard to ignore the burns, but I’m still walking.
