Talk

August 26, 2013

 

If I could write a different song, I would

If I could simplify lines drawn, I would 

If I could only be more strong, I would

If I could right all that was wrong, I would

 

If all my clothes had not been torn I would

Before the night we braved the storm we stood

Upon the grounds we'd conquer Hollywood

Before their prudent warnings got us good

 

Come on let's talk about escape some more

Into the heartland or a distant shore

Like a runaway kid in a peaceful corps

Like a pair of dilapidated troubadours

Empty out your empty draws

Can't take the retribution anymore

There's this instinct that I can't ignore

Come on let's push the pedal through the floor

 

Stop, It's talk, it's talk, it's only talk

And when I'm feeling just a bit distraught

It's just a foul disease I must have caught

From a Libertine on a city block

You gotta bring it back to a safer place

 

If I could write a different song I would

If I could simplify lines drawn I would 

If I could only be more strong I would

If I could right all that was wrong I would

 

If I could write a different song I would

If I could simplify lines drawn I would 

If I could only be more strong I would

If I could only be more strong I would

 

Though I implore you if you understood

All of the needs that probably never could

Amount to more than poor Red Riding Hood

When she was lost out in the blackest wood

 

And I implore you if you understand

the need to wake instead of wave your hands

In search to numb that soul that won't expand

behind the confines of your sneaker brand

 

And if you want to join my traveling band

Ride down the Nile or the Rio Grande

Or feel the sunrise on a distant sand

Before  you're old, or dead, or damned

 

Stop, It's talk, it's talk, it's only talk

And when I'm feeling just a bit distraught

 

And I don't care if you ain't sleeping sound

And I don't care about that cave you're in

And I don't care if I'll be hunted down

And I don't care if it's a deadly sin

 

Stop, It's talk, it's talk, it's only talk

And when I'm feeling just a bit distraught

It's just a foul disease I must have caught

From a Libertine on a city block

You gotta bring it back to a safer place

 

If I could write a different song, I would

If I could simplify lines drawn, I would 

If I could only be more strong, I would

If I could right all that was wrong, I would

 

If I could right all that was wrong, I would

If I could right all that was wrong, I would

If I could right all that was wrong, I would
