The Days Are Far Too Long

Poem By Gil Tee

The days are far too long for me to fill
And solitude is no protection now
The nights are even longer still somehow
And sleep no longers answers to my will

There was a time I used to dream until
The stars had long since faded from the sky
But now I wake with darkness in my eye
My dreams all fail me and always will

Lucky In Love (Song For Bill)

Spot the Leonard Cohen quote.

I guess you've been lucky in love
And that's more important than most things I know

Land Of Plenty

There are people all around the world,
Starving and forgotten,
And apples on the ground, dew-pearled,
Left lying to go rotten.

Broken

My body is losing the battle
My mind lost a long time ago
My soul is asleep in Seattle
And there’s something else you oughta know

Dancing Star

'You must have chaos within you to give birth to a dancing star.' (Nietzsche)


Look at me, look at you

Song: Who Has Given Me This Sweet?

There's a fundamental question that I try not to forget
Formulated long ago, and it still hasn't been answered yet.
Well, it makes me feel humble, it makes me feel sad,
It makes me feel guilty for all the good things that I've had;

Hard Rain Coming

They say we're making progress and things are better now
They say we're living longer and we're healthier somehow
They say that life's improving in oh! so many ways
But who can turn the water into wine these days?
