Further


And so it is
Just like you said, it should be
We'll both forget the breeze
Most of the time
And so it is
The colder water
The soldier's daughter
The pupil in denial

Never Gets Old

On the corner of main street
Just tryin' to keep it in line
You say you wanna move on, and
You say I'm falling behind

Can you read my mind?
Can you read my mind?

I never really gave up on
Breakin' out of this two-star town
I got the green light
I got a little fight
I'm gonna turn this thing around

Can you read my mind?
Can you read my mind?

The good old days, the honest man
The restless heart, the Promised Land
A subtle kiss that no one sees
A broken wrist and a big trapeze

Oh well, I don't mind, you don't mind
Cause I don't shine if you don't shine
Before you go, can you read my mind?

It's funny how you just break down
Waiting on some sign
I pull up to the front of your driveway
With magic soaking my spine

Can you read my mind?
Can you read my mind?

The teenage queen, the loaded gun
The drop dead dream, the Chosen One
A southern drawl, the world unseen
A city wall and a trampoline

Oh well, I don't mind, you don't mind
'Cause I don't shine if you don't shine
Before you jump
Tell me what you find
When you read my mind

Slipping in my faith until I fall
She never returned that call
Woman, open the door, don't let it sting
I wanna breathe that fire again

She said, I don't mind, you don't mind
Cause I don't shine if you don't shine
Put your back on me
Put your back on me
Put your back on me

The stars are blazing like rebel diamonds cut out of the sun
When you read my mind

Dayum son

One of the best things I've read online in a while.

On kindness

O Captain! My Captain! our fearful trip is done;
The ship has weather'd every rack, the prize we sought is won;
The port is near, the bells I hear, the people all exulting,
While follow eyes the steady keel, the vessel grim and daring:

But O heart! heart! heart!
O the bleeding drops of red,
Where on the deck my Captain lies,
Fallen cold and dead.

Again

With much festive cheer we began the New Year;
Wine, food, song, and dancing to boot.
But my heart's still alone, in this city once called home.
Home's where the heart is and mine's still with you.

Singin in the Rain

The rain is gone now, though it was good while it lasted.
The rain is gone now, almost as quickly as it came.
But it's played its part, and the summer is a little cooler for it.
Little puddles remain - little reminders of what once was - as I sit and listen to a song from 2007 called 1973.
Like the summer after the storm, I will learn from my mistakes. 

Here we go again.

It's something unpredictable, but in the end it's right.
I hope you had the time of your life.
