Even I'm impressed with this one.   I guess the Lakers game made me extra inspired.

-the stars are eyes in the sky-
sung freestyle

hello
who are you to wonder what the sky
has to do with you
do you see the stars as eyes or jewels or planets
i don't know myself
but i can wonder just how they got there
and what they do for you and me
i don't know why they are here
and i don't know why they are going to die
with you and me
with you i want you to look at the stars
and see who you are

the sky holds secrets
and don't you forget
are you your dreams' pilot
or do they drive you
to do things you don't want to do
and if that's true
why do you dream among the stars and trees
do you seem to watch them as they watch you
go now to them
close your eyes and go to sleep
we'll wonder for free
and we will wonder about the sea
that reflects them in the water
i see that you want to know why the wind blows
and you want me to go to sleep with you
i can't now
i wonder by the light of the fire why we die
do we leave more than just bones
i want to know why we die
and all the leaves have fallen
the branches are dead and broken
they drift in the violent sea
i just want to think about life
and i love to kiss you and wonder with you
i am sure we'll find out together what we're for

and why we wait at the shore
instead of trying to swim in the water
the waves are so big and so cold
we will freeze and we will die
if we try to outswim our dreams
we will be dashed on the rocks
our blood will be red in the sea
the salt will overpower our tears of pain
we will be as flame burning so bright
then dying in night
i want you to know
that's just the way it goes
don't waste your life wasting mine too
i am going to swim
join me
you please
join me
i am so alone
but the stars
their eyes see what i can't
do they look at us in the waves
or just themselves
i don't know
i can't know
i'm swimming
i won't drown
i will now go to sleep
my friend
lullaby

 I think I could need - this in my life
I think I'm just scared - that I know too much
I can't relate and that's a problem
I'm feeling ...
If you're gone - maybe it's time to go home
There's an awful lot of breathing room
But I can hardly move
If you're gone - baby you need to come home
cuz there's a little bit of something me...
In everything in you.

this was a lovely way to see the stars again

Hey, everyone -- glad you enjoyed.   And Butterfly slippers: walk to california on your LIPS? Now THAT'S funny! I'm more a poet than a songwriter. My voice isn't my strength.   Very narrow range.

Later, all.

Mike
