What do you think?
Should we explore each other further?
Perhaps into adventures, big and small
Learn more; take some time over hot tea in Timbuktu
Or maybe just a walk, let’s see if we feel, the feelings
More – as someone once said
“Who knows lighting could strike”
And remember, sometimes it’s necessary to take unconventional actions to go beyond what is ordinary!
Sometimes it is as simple as crossing the next bridge
I understand the need for safety – la sicurezza
I even think you wise, looking in my eyes this
For in your movements – too light
My question remains – Where is the excitement?
How long has it been?
My Name, my name dear lady
Do you not see this fire I stand in
You know, remember – Lightings loving touch!
Your heart sprang forth
Naked, in purple velvet drapes
I understand the stance – I’d take the same,
if I we’re you
Perhaps – then Again
I’d probably be running by now
If I were you
So different this world – Capisce
No mountain’s in early Novembers’
From our window at cliff’s falls and the
Aquamarine water bath our love nestles
Among the giant Pines
Look at our high places – few left;
Unburned or reclaimed
Snow all ready covers our camp site –
Shall we head that way?
Yes, I understand the need for safety
Unknown nights lost in whiteout –
Highlights no help at all
Sì, capisco il bisogno di sicurezza – La Sicurezza
Did you not light the road ahead?
Hanging from an open window in the dead of winters night
And oh yes – was it not you
On that same midnight hanging from that open window
As you screamed at top – the way down, oh my
While laughing at how we were going to die?
You said something about we – were on a ice cliff
In a truck – heading down
Oh yea – And!
We’re out of control
You Remember – you know – the excitement?
My question remains.
I look at you
And your loveliness
Sets a chill about me, that hurts my heart
Seen though fog of deepening ice
Nights a new – asleep in your arms
