We inaugurate the evening
Just drumming up a little weirdness

It gets late so early now
The waves come in in mountain phases
Linked in posibilities
Branching posibilities

I'd see fire where it's not supposed to be
In the empty library, at super time
By the respirating basement door
The dog eats out of an old tambourine on the floor

I've been told you can live a long long time on the love of a dog
And that things get bitter and bad when the people are wrong
And sleep can be had for the price of a song
Late in the day, when the options are gone

When the seatbelt is the only hug you've felt in weeks
When wrong numbers are the totality of your social life
The obscure strategies of wildlife
Only flummox the hell out of you kid

I first saw her in a mega store
The day glow raven born into a free fall
Like plastic easter basket grass
Falling from an overpass

The fulfillment of a 10th grade prophecy
A motel masterpiece

Blind to the branching possibilities
Blind to linked impossibilities
Teardrops were standing in my eyes
Like deer before they bolt

It was like I was stretching my arm through the cat-door to heaven

I was thinking
I could lick the frosting off these summer days
If the nights were half as sweet

Me, like a banged up dog walking half sideways
I adored the way she modified my mornings
When I'd wake up in the calm shoals of her bed
Somersaults and smoke in a universe of sleep
Before she slipped into her heritage and disappeared
And now every second thought is of control

I guess in a way I long to be rad
When I was with her it felt wrong to be sad
Did I tell you an angel finally came and shut my mouth?
There was a smile and a tear in her voice too
And she taught me to relight, relight and relight again

You tell me you can live a long long time on the love of a dog
Things get bitter and bad
sleep can be had
Late in the day when the options are gone

Please let your eyes be a friend to me again

Its just malfunctioning teardrops

A cowboy overflow of the heart
