Power in the money Money in the power Minute after minute Hour after hour I heard the crickets Singing to each other Rubbing legs together for Some easily lured lover Here come the stars The streetlights and glowing signs That pry open the bars I drink to change Although you’d find If you pressed rewind Tonight played out the same I have my bouts But they’re too addictive to live without And it might just take one more glass To figure it out
There’s a girl with me A pleasant mystery I wonder if I should let her know It’s morning Or just write her like a story My clothes are off The TV’s on There’s a voice trapped in the dial tone I speak the language of a love that lasts The vowels of an arching back The value of a photograph Is it the sex that makes a house a home? Does it take strength to die alone? I write her off just like she’s one of my stories
Nothing Nothing done Nothing done in love Nothing done in love is a waste Thunder You’re so wonderful Keep your distance Weak with giving Weak with the desire to give Cloud : Sun / Nest : Egg
When Mother leaves the den The pup stares after (sometimes forever) And learns nothing Outside the changing ways of hunger And he calls out her name (sometimes forever) In a faithful attempt to lead her home Coyotes howling out their loneliness Mistaking others as echoes What am I without you? Your name My only sound
I’m going to stumble through the streets tonight With a tongue tasting of wine I see three boys on the sidewalk Laughing and riding their bikes Whose future’s brighter than mine Gleaming like a goldmine Now I drink like I’ve got someplace to go And in the dozens of faces whose names I don’t know I see no perfect answer
Who I’m with Where I’ve been How I’ve undone my loose ends Never alone But always searching For someone familiar The night’s on its heels My drink tastes the same Each stranger I meet Knows me by name A kiss on the cheek And a shake of my hand I don’t understand
