Creative fun in
the palm of your hand.

Take it with you when you go
Living down to the level
of your lowered expectations
never a problem
Breaks a heart to think too much

Summer of contrasts in memory
You hear what you want to hear
Never changed, did it?

So vivid to think of it as in the past
Much clearer than when it was immediate,

There is a hollow echo to the laughter.
Beats a spirit down to hope for brighter days
Like a big mistake hanging in the distance.....

Autumn looms large
promising a swift finish
to an unopened chamber
or was it an envelope?

Taking a gun for the road
paints a whole different picture
of goodbyes never said

Aim carefully
One shot is all it takes to break it forever......
Oh, and it is beyond repair -
Don't make that mistake again

Offered it to you, did he?
Some sort of afterthought
Gift that keeps on giving
Ride away without a backward glance.....

Hearts shattered, on the ground
Shredded paper
in your rear view mirror
Never Seen

Flat joke, something about blood on the wall..
Once again, irrelevant in July.
A lot of things are.....
