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

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

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.
