Pop Song Wisdom

Baby you could swing by my room around ten
Cinderellas gone to New York City and 
I didn't know where to turn to
This is my homewtown and
I'm just sitting out here watching airoplanes take off and fly
Waste it if you want
It's the bond that we tie up and over and under and
I only want to be with you

how far this all goes

how far this goes
every day
is hard to see
tomorrow I'll be gone
I suppose I could come to jesus in prayer and he would take it all away and
bring the good news 
which is
It will all get taken away 
with or without Jesus
no matter 
how far it goes

the smell of freedom these days

when chestnuts are roasting on an open fire
how open does the fire
have to be
to be able to
breath life
the moment
how open and 
do i have to be
in ordet to breathe
the smell of chestnuts and 
my lungs and
my life

A Long Winter

Empty lives are not always like empty trees
Buds hidden under a dusting of snow
Even if they seem that way
Even if the snow does conceal leaves
Strewn about in every direction
Trees seldom stand alone and
Once a leaf falls
Who can say where it fell from
Who wants to admit that they know the difference
Between and empty tree and
The alternative

line of sight

when the pretty leaves
go, the view improves ... wonder

life seems long

the leaves fall off the
trees and grow back every
year, until they don't
