on Saturday night is a golden light over the cars on a city street and the moon is blue in the living room when the movie is black and white lets not cry over my spilt beer but sometimes someone lights up the room shatter and chemistry can shatter the heart. i can’t blame you for my blue mood wishes and dreams might be about some lonely boy in Brooklyn or France i’ll try to make you part of my dance on Saturday night is a golden light over the cars on a city street and the moon is blue in the living room when the movie is black and white wishes and dreams might be about some lonely boy in Brooklyn or France i’ll try to make you part of my dance

these flickering thoughts coming through the silence from far away ……..ricochet my head is a partner who makes me sweat and pray tosses me a few words and turns the page two boys in SanFrancisco looking for a place i let them have my floor to sleep and Tom came by that day. quarters in a bucket my pay day i sang in SanFrancisco tips and smiles ..and cops give me plastic flowers on my birth day i hope the lady on the corner has a nice day but i’m watching a computer waiting for the play as stay at home performers ricochet

from rooms where no one knew me Fastback and Russel took me in cars and trains to to show me electric bands that played with me like helping hands that touched me and Carl came and kissed me and Carl came and kissed me a window looks out on the night moon light in a purple sky an ambulance and a flashing light a flashing light waiting for the end of time time stands still in the meantime make a new song, sing an old song every day a new disaster waiting for the end of time time stands still in the meantime make a new song, sing an old song every day a new disaster Winter in New York was cold in Harlem wisdom was old welfare and work was what i meant when i said music and food and rent electric bands played for me like helping hands, touched me and the Brooklyn Music scene and the Brooklyn Music scene a window looks out on the night moon light in a purple sky an ambulance and a flashing light a flashing light waiting for the end of time time stands still in the meantime make a new song, sing an old song every day a new disaster waiting for the end of winter time stands still in the meantime make a new song, sing an old song every day a new disaster
