FROM MY BOOK 02:55
Tear me another page, from a book that I am making Blue adventures, yellow day dreams, in the rain, eating chocolate ice cream . The Circus was another strange thing. The clowns waiting in the wings. Cotton candy, the kids from Harlem, we both got sick on a ride that day. And sipping wine in Italy, after playing on the stage. Me and our band toured EU After dark, Milano art shows . All the lovers I have known, Such kind people everyone And the friendships on the road Carried me where I would go Tear me another page, from a book that I am making Blue adventures, yellow day dreams, in the rain, eating chocolate ice cream .

All of the clouds in the a blue and white sky. Songs of today and tomarrow pass by. Rene goes walking down the sidewalk. Looks in windows ..what wll he buy Something shines and something sparkles Something cries but makes Rene smile La la All of the lives that we see around us All of the songs that we sing about them. Jay drinks coffee at the cafe. Jay is walking down the sidewalk Something shines and something sparkles Something cries but makes Jay smile La la Saturday trains travel to Manhattan We spent the day at the Metropolitan. I am walking through the galleries . Famous names and pictures smile at me Something shines and something sparkles Something cries but makes me smile La la

QUEER STREET 03:53
Saturday night light, in the garden The Summer rain falls, on my old hat Through the gate a man is walking With a cane, I am singing An old song , I learned in childhood About the rain, and Saturday night life Through the gate a man is walking in night light, I am crying —I stood on Queer Street, with my hands on my face. The decision was mine but you always got your way, On the day that I left, I rememberd your name . On the day that you died, I was far away. Through the gate a man is walking With a cane, I am singing Don’t cry T. don’t stop dreaming Cause I’m a singer, I don’t stop singing.

LOVE SONG 03:35
My old flash light, makes the path bright But I never walked the straight and narow. The distance from here, that takes me you I’ll make a love song. And id’e like to screw you. A river of dreams but all that crap seems’ The stuff I imagin. Makes me want to scream, The winter is cold, Summer is hot And you are hot. id’e like to hold you. And my old flash light, makes the path bright And I can imagine another boy in another life So lets have a beer and lets have a life I’ll kiss you hello, and say good night

,,what’s it like, to carry a poem, into the twilight, All The way home. I liked to climb apple trees, when I was a child The sky through the leaves, was the first song I rote. …… mysterious night, fell on me suddenly, the comfort of darkness, that I always liked And in the evening i’de hop on my bike And watch the sun set, over Long Island soundDES When I was in high school, my mom got a sails job She bought a piano, so I could play piano I played piano, all day i’de play piano I played piano, all day i’de play piano But what’s it like, to carry a song, into the twilight, All The way home.
