Friends and Lovers and the Senses

Show me things that bounce
Or things that flash in light
I’m really just a simple man
But not just over sight.

Read me slow a story
Whisper in my ear
I’m really just a simple man
I hope I’ve made that clear.

Wash your hair with coconut
Spray on your perfume
I’m really just a simple man
No matter what the room.

Fry me up some bacon
And brew the coffee strong
I’m really just a simple man
I hope it won’t be long.

Rub my shoulders and my neck
And you can have my wallet too
I’m really just a simple man
It’s really not that hard to do.

Senses That Fail

The hunger doesn’t match the fear

And exhaustion overtakes the soul

And if you look up just right then

You may find a hand to hold.

 

The things that felt impossible

Will drift away and dissappear

But only in the darkest place

Will you sometimes see Him near.

 

It’s not that in the best of times

You are all alone to fend

But you yourself cannot see

In happiness around the bend.

 

So when you cannot take the toll

And every minute is an hour

Look up to the clouded sky

And feel the hand of steady power.
