all the images
that run through my head
they come and go
some of them sad
some of them sober
some of them don’t fit
my mind’s eye

now i see through you
the shyness, the uncertainty
the need for comfort
the regret

things’d be different
if i only knew
at least i feel better
for betting so much
even though its too late now

let me hug you
before we enter the car
i don’t think there’ll be
another occasion soon
and i’d rather keep your smell
and the touch of your skin

i could drive forever
with your hand around my neck
we stop at a red light
and i stare straight ahead
knowing that a turn of my head
would melt away any resolve i still have

another borrowed window
and strange sheets
can’t stop trembling
and memories of
yesterday evening
make me sick again

the whole night
turning away
avoiding that look
of understanding
that would put an end to it

if only i could
take no
as an answer

sometimes memories
attach themselves to records
and feelings to words
in such a way that
trying to re-write them
becomes quite useless
better instead
to loose oneself
in the comfort
of an old blues

bell bottom blues, you made me cry
i don’t want to lose this feeling
and if i could choose a place to die
it would be in your arms

bell bottom blues, you made me cry
i don’t want to lose this feeling

do you want to see me crawl across the floor to you?
do you want to hear me beg you to take me back?
i’d gladly do it because
i don’t want to fade away
give me one more day, please
i don’t want to fade away
in your heart i want to stay

it’s all wrong, but it’s all right
the way that you treat me baby
once i was strong but i lost the fight
you won’t find a better loser

bell bottom blues, don’t say goodbye
i’m sure we’re gonna meet again
and if we do, don’t you be surprised
if you find me with another lover

can’t get no sleep
editing commas
looking for directness
not sharpness
always the four of you
circling through my mind

put on a song
light up a cigar
have a drink
feel the beat

having trouble
to differentiate dream
from reality
aware of it
but undeniably there
