Another Song of Songs

Will you sing to me?
Will you sing to me that way?
All I want is to lose myself in your melody.
Will you sing to me softly in the rain?

This heart is slowing down.
This heart just needs a long rest.
This old world has been on my mind too long.
This heart beat beat is fading fast.

I will let you go
I will become someone else.
I will turn myself inside out.
I will forget to be afraid.

Will you sing to me?
Will you sing to me that way?

All I want is to lose myself in your melody.
Will you sing to me softly in the rain?
Will you sing to me softly in the rain?

Going Places

Take me to the bright sky
Tell me what I should know
Take me to the burning heart of the sun

Take me to the ocean
Show me how to stay low
I wanna be the only one

Sometimes it seems
We’re on opposite sides
Of this infinitely long dark hall

I keep my bags packed
I keep my shoes on
I will be ready when you call

Take me to the mountains
Teach me how to run fast
Push me past the edge when I think I’m done

Take me to the forest
Hide with me forever
I wanna be the only one

Going Places

Not a Pure Thermal Phenomenon

I had what it took then, honey honey

To take it straight into the sun

Get it – get get to me

Get it – get get to me

Get it – get get to me

Get it – get get to me

Honey, honey, it’s a minute past our dew point

Swim in time like water and I get this

Wet grip liquid reality

Waiting to inflect/intone oh no

Can you hear heat in my voice?

Yeah, No way, sugar sugar dumpling

I tell a truth: I am a truth

I had to live and had to care

I got an unfair

advantage

I got a big ol’ swollen belly

And this multi-colored tongue

Hallelujah! Gawda’mighty!

When I watch you touch your inner thigh

I’m kissing all these angels

In the endless white hot sunshine

It’s so hard – it’s up to me

‘Cause I ain’t leaving no one behind, no

I cain’t leave no one behind

Not a Pure Thermal Phenomenon

THAT ONE ROCK OPERA WHERE BLACK HEARTS 
HAVE RAINBOW ORGASMS WHILE REALIZING THEMSELVES 
AS PART OF INDRA'S NET

Hypnotizing vertigo
I can't stand it anymore
It makes me want to cry
It makes you want to cry
It makes me want to cry

Where do souls run off to, honey?
Are the black hearts doomed too soon?
I’m not supposed to be here, honey.
But for this need I feel for you. (Goddamn)


{Interlude}


ENTER CAPTAIN BLACKHEART

CAPTAIN BLACKHEART:
This is your Captain Blackheart speaking
And I don't know who's to blame
I don’t know how it’s meant to be
And I can’t escape my pain


ANGELS & DEVILS SPIN INTO VIEW

ANGELS & DEVILS (SINGING):
There are black hearts
And blue hearts
And red hearts
And white hearts
And do you yet know
What sets these hearts far apart?

CAPTAIN BLACKHEART:
I’ve never known a blue heart
But I’ve watched a red one bleed
And white hearts give me diarrhea 
And a’knocking of mine knees.

So if you’re asking me about 
Any differences I see, 
Well a heart’s a fart that beats and blarts
No mind the color of its sheen

ANGELS & DEVILS (SINGING):
Oh, you Black Heart….
Dear, sweet, Black Heart…
How very smart art thart…
Though thou simply dost know nart…

That the truth of all these hearts

And all time 

And all space

And all things

Is that you 
are IT 
lovely Black Heart, 
empty Black Heart, 
dear, sweet, broken Black Heart

And what IT 
is is 
IT IS, IT IS, IT IS…


ANGELS & DEVILS SPIN OUT OF VIEW


BLACKHEART EXPLODES INTO AN ORGASMIC RAINBOW


{End Interlude}

It makes me want to cry (Goddamn)
It makes you want to cry (Goddamn)
It makes me want to cry (Goddamn)
I just can't stand it anymore (Goddamn)
This hypnotizing vertigo

Goddamn!

Where do these souls run off to, honey?
No hearts are false - no hearts are true.
I’m not supposed to be here with ya, honey.
But for this need I feel for you. (Goddamn)
This need I feel for you.

STILL A GOOD TIME STILL

Yer gonna have a good time still
Oh lord, yer gonna have a good time still
Yer gonna scream
Yer gonna shout
Yer gonna lern what’s all about

Hot Damn! 

Yer gonna have a good time still

I used to be a god-fearing dude
That’s right I used to be a god-fearing dude
But then I got to heaven 
And found there was nuttin’ thair to do
So that fear o’god just left me through and through

Yee-haw!

Yer gonna have a good time still
Oh lord, yer gonna have a good time still
Yer gonna scream
Yer gonna shout
Yer gonna lern what’s all about

Have mercy! 

Gonna have a good time still

Now I still am a lord-lovin’ man
That’s right – a boney-fied, lord-lovin’ man
Just don’t believe that god’s a king
Ruling down over you and me
I like democracy not monarchy, that’s true!

Sing with me!

Yer gonna have a good time still
Oh lord, yer gonna have a good time still
Yer gonna scream
Yer gonna shout
Yer gonna lern what’s all about

Sing it!

Yer gonna have a good time still

Are we trying to get Heaven?
No, there’s nothin’ hap’nin’ thair!

Are we trying to raise some Hades?
Hell no! No fires of despair!

Then what’s the point of all-a this?
Breathing every breath with care!

So let’s scream and let’s shout
And let’s dance our demons out!

Let’s have a good time ’til time stands still.
Let’s have a good time ’til time stands still.
Let’s have a good time ’til time stands still.

Let’s have a good time
For all time
Let’s have a good ol’ time 
’til time 
stands 

still.

Amen!

Country Lament #48303

Whyyyy
couldn't it be you 
that left me?
Whyyyy
did I
have to be the one
to leave you?
Hoped
we grow apart
without much 
trouble
or maybe 
fall
in love
with someone new.
When we first met
all time stretched out
before us.

When we first met
we couldn’t wait
to do the do.

When we first met
we couldn’t sleep
without affections.

When we first met
we never thought
that we’d be through.
Oh, whyyyy
couldn't it be you 
that left me?
Whyyyy
did I
have to be the one
to leave you?
Hoped
we grow apart
without much 
trouble
or maybe 
fall
in love
with someone new.
The years went on
and we lost 
what was behind us.

The years went on
and we dealt
with the day by day.

The years went on
and we wondered
what did done happened.

The years went on
and it was clear
we had to go our ways.
But whyyyy
couldn't it be you 
that left me?
Whyyyy 
did I
have to be the one
to leave you?
Hoped
we grow apart
without much 
trouble
or maybe 
fall
in love
with someone new.
Did I never tell you 
you were everything 
I ever wanted?

Did I never tell you
how I loved
the way you moved?

Did I never tell you
how it meant 
to have you near me?

Did I never tell you
all the little things
I never told you?
My darling, 
whyyyy
couldn't it be you 
that left me?
Whyyyy 
did I
have to be the one
to leave you?
Hoped
we grow apart
without much 
trouble
or maybe 
fall
in love
with someone new.

Country Lament #223,804

You were the hungry one.

You were the ornery one;

the haunted one that survived…

the only one I ever loved.

You were the hopeful one. 

You were the faithful one;

the sacred one I waited for…

the only, only one.

Now I know without you

how the slow days go so lonely.

Now I know without you

 how lonely days go slow.

Now I know how isolation

spreads everywhere like cancer.

Now I know how it feels to be

some fruit left on the vine…

long past picking time.

You were the precious one 

I can’t let go of.

You were the cautious one 

I couldn’t fool.

You left me lifetimes

to remember, darling.

Now I’m living lifetimes

of over-ripe regret.
