Wherever You Go

Where ever you go
I will be there,

Whether you know
or not.

I can't tell you
How to be there

You got to go
Yourself.

But when we show
The feelings

You gotta know
That it's real.

Where ever you go
I will be there

Whether you know
or not.

I can't tell you
How to see there.

You gotta
Know yourself.

But when we
Show the feelings

You gotta know
That it's real
You gotta know
That it's real.

Nightbird

Couldn't get to sleep last night
The thought of you was calling me
And I could not fall
No, I could not fall.

I listened and I heard
The nightbird a callin' me
It sang so soft and true,
It reminded me of you,

Nightbird
NIghtbird
Nightbird
a callin'.

And when the song was gone
There was nothing but
The thought of you;
And the night bird.

Of what use is there
To this endless dance
of darkness;

For the nightbird
For the nightbird
For the nightbird
a callin'

I couldn't get to sleep last night
The thought of you was calling me,
And I could not fall
No, I could not fall.

I listened, and I heard
The nightbird a callin' me
It sang so soft and true
It reminded me of you

Night bird
Nightbird
Nightbird
a callin'.

yeah, yeah :)

yeah, i know i've been monopolizing this space, and i shall
back off at some point. i'm just a poem-a-day kind of guy. :)
these poems have felt so incomplete, unheard,
sitting on my music stand, next to my folder of hunter/barlow
material, and for them to be able to be read by some of you, gives them
a sense of completion, and wholeness/fulness, that i could
never express in words. so thank you all for your flexibility,
and appreciation. you reading the words is really finishing
the poems, in a way i never could. and thankyou dead.net,
for this forum, again i can't express in words. also,
i sent my mom here to read some of her kid's poems,
so everybody now, HEY MOM!!! :)

thanks grdaed, now i'm
"gonna just lean back and turn on the jets"

love, andy schubert

What you got

What you got
It's all you need
You could have nothing
And still be
Singing in the breeze.

Don't hold yourself down
Spread your wings and fly
Or just walk on into town
And let those cars go by.

Cause what you got
It's all you need
Head up into the hills
And camp out in the trees.

No one can keep you down
Spread your wings and fly
Or just kick on back
And stare up at the sky.

Cause what you got
It's all you need
You could have nothing
And still be
Singing in the breeze.

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,

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 allright, 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.

the rose

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
a free idea

thank's free idea. You have brightened the day and energized the mind.
Just like yesterdays coffee.

peace my friend,pk
