why don't we close our eyes

Why don't we close our eyes
And fall into the future
Just so we realize
What we are shooting for

Why don't we close our eyes
And fall inside
Into the world inside our mind
It's all right, yeah, it's so nice

So, don't you be unkind
And I think you will find
Everything is gonna be alright
In good time

So clap three times
And you will know the answer
It works everytime
We believe

Takes us right through
The eye of the needle
You can't use force
To get inside.
So,

I woke up this morning and smelled a rose
a gentle breeze
and thoughful prose
I woke up this morning and smelled a rose
a feeling of harmony
right down to my toes
something in the air

my life

I ain't got no place to call my own
I ain't got no place, I'm all alone

Ain't got no wife
Stay out all night
Cause I ain't got no life.

But i'll tell you why
These are the best
Days of my life
Cause I got you
Lord, cause I got you.

I'm losing hair
I'm losing sleep
I'm making promises
I can't keep
Time slips away
To no one knows where
If I think about it too much
I get scared

I ain't got no place to call my home
I ain't got no place, I'm all alone

Ain't got no wife
Stay out all night
Cause I ain't got no life.

But I'll tell you why
These are the best
Days of my life,
Cause I got you,
Lord, cause I got you.

Words

Just need a moment to clear my head,
Straighten my spine, Allow my spirit to rise.
One more time singing, one more time bringing
Everything to life, in my mind.

Just need a moment to clear my head
Straighten my spine, Allow my spirit to shine.
Telephone wires singing, trying to get higher
Thinking that, there are no words

Words. I'll have nothing to do with them
Words. Won't be the same when I get through with them

Just need a moment to clear my head
Straighten my spine, Allow my spirit to rise.
Bird on the wire singing. I have no idea,
What was I thinking? That there are no words

Words. Well, I'll have nothing to do with them
Words. Won't be the same when I get through with them.

Just need a moment to clear my head
Straighten my spine. Allow my spirit to shine.
Wind on the wire Singing. I have no idea,
What are you thinking? Words

Words. Well, I'll have nothing to do with them
Words. Won't be the same when I get through with them

Just need a moment to clear my head
Straighten my spine. Allow my spirit to rise
One more time singing, One more time bringing
Everything to Life. In my mind.

Reason to beleive

Just give me a reason to believe,
And I'll go on,

Wearing my heart out on my sleeve,
I'll carry on,

Just give me a reason to hope,
And I'll go on,

No matter how steep the slope,
I'll carry on,
I'll carry on.

Just give me a piece of your heart,
And I'll go on,
Just a little piece of your heart,
That I'll carry on.

Just give me a reason to believe,
And I'll go on,
Wearing my heart out on my sleeve,
I'll carry on,
I'll carry on.

No don't go

No please don't go

Just please stay

We will pass our time away

Inside the sunshine

That we have stumbled

Upon.

Now that you're home

Stay awhile

Take a load off your bones,

And let me say

I don't ever want to see

You go away.

thanks for the kind words, stuman and tl. i'm just trying to express a little intelligence,
while i appear to be here. at any given moment, i'm gettin' way more than i'm givin',
especially when it comes to dead.net. i enjoy trying to find my way around
this vast virtual library architecture, and reading yer'all posties. love, andy
ps i try to tiptoe in while you're all sleeping, and lay little poem-roses on your pillows,
for when you awaken.

Think you are a gifted poet. Agree w/Stuman-think you are very very good. Am really liking your poems-your style, your darkish undertones, the words you chose. They read like songs. Thank you sooo much for sharing!

Sleeping Dogs

Wakin' up this morning
Drinkin' yesterday's coffee
It's burnt tasting and bitter
Just like the two of us.

I think I'll let this morning
Turn right into tomorrow
I'm just gonna lean back
And turn on the Jets

Cause I got nothin' to add
To this pile of words
Just don't want to see you
Turn your butter into swords

So if you find me dreaming
You might just leave me be
Don't you know some stones
Are better left unturned

Sometimes it's better to
Just walk on by
Walk on by and
Let sleeping dogs lie.

Wakin' up this morning
Drinkin' yesterdays coffee
It's burnt tasting and bitter
Just like the two of us

I think I'll let this morning
Turn right into tomorrow
I'm just gonna lean back
And turn on the jets.

come on home

I know it's been a long time
And a long, long, lonely road.
And I know that I hurt ya, babe
And I just can't make that go.

Baby, please don't make me
Go through all this all alone
It was hard enough before you left
But now there's just no hope

And if you're wondering why I called today
I just called to say,

Baby, I love you, and won't you please
Come on home
Baby won't you come on
Won't you come on home.

Baby won't you promise me
You won't never, never go

I know it's been a long road
And you've come along, long way
And I know that I hurt ya baby,
And I just can't make that go away

And if you're wondering
Why I called today
I just called to say

Baby, I love you. and won't you please
Come on home
Baby won't you come on
Baby won't you come on
Baby won't you come on home.
