Where you been, P?
I been missin your laugh
can't seem to find your touch
and I miss you oh, so much.

It's a tough world
we're in,
and I know you try your best.
when will you
just lay down and rest

pushin the envelope
and not going nowhere
I long to hold you near

Is it my voice you hear
when you lie in bed so still
Can I sing you to sleep
feel your body close to me

I miss you baby
and I work so hard
to find your place
in the sun
and when the day's done
we'll see
where we've gone

"it takes all the running you can do, to keep in the same place. If you want to get somewhere else, you must run at least twice as fast as that."

- this is totally how I feel today.

Dancing In the Dark
2004-02-20 13:37:21 ET

I get up in the evening,
and I ain't got nothing to say
I come home in the morning, I go to bed
feeling the same way
I ain't nothing but tired,
man I'm just tired and bored with myself
Hey there baby,
I could use just a little help

You can't start a fire,
you can't start a fire without a spark
This gun's for hire
even if we're just dancing in the dark

Message keeps getting clearer,
radio's on and I'm moving round the place
I check myself out in the mirror
I wanna change my clothes
my hair
my face!
Man I ain't getting nowhere
just sitting in a dump like this
There's something happening somewhere
baby, I just know that there is

You can't start a fire...

You sit around getting older
there's a joke itīs awhile and it's on me
I'll shake this world off my shoulders
come on baby, the laughs on me

Stay on the streets of this town
and they'll be carving you up alright
They say you got to stay hungry
hey baby I'm just about starving tonight
I'm dying for some action
I'm sick of sitting 'round here trying to write this book
I need a love reaction
come on now baby give me just one look

You can't start a fire
sittin' round cryin' over a broken heart
This gun's for hire
even if we're just dancing in the dark

You can't start a fire
worrin about your little world fallin' appart
This gun's for hire
even if we're just dancing in the dark

I recently realized that "karaoke bar" is 5 sylables

Karaoke bar
open book of poetry
Inspiration waits

karaoke bar
where drunken morons can sing
badly, but who cares?

karaoke bar
haven of drunken morons
and lonely poets

As I exit the tunnel
and I enter the city
I am a man
with a plan
and a mission
and a map.
As I enter the door
I leave my fear
I am myself
with my hope
to sustain
As I exit the building
I am one of 6 million
wandering the streets
with my hands
in my pockets
and a weight
on my head
As I exit the tunnel
on my way home
I am a man
no more
no less
than what I was
