but now he sits alone sometimes

writing in his book

and those looks and eyes are only

in his past      

     

So he thinks on how it feels to see a lot

and know that there is so much more to see

the world revolves and never stops

its spins through space at supersonic speed

 

He's seen a lot of clubs and bars

the light life

the mirrored rooms and dancing floors

the indoor scene

he's seen a lot of people

buy their drinks and sell their pride

and make believe it isn't as it seems

 

He's seen a lot of lovers

turn their backs

on what they knew deep down inside

was their best bet

he's seen them stop their listening

he's seen them walk away and not look back

he's seen their faces full of sad regret

 

So he thinks on how it feels to see a lot

and know that there is so much more to see

the world revolves and never stops

its spins through space at supersonic speed

   

            Indoor life

            shines in artificial light

            track-lit skies

            moonshine eyes

            the globe spins on full time

   

Yes, he thinks on how it feels to see a lot

and know that there is so much more to see

the world revolves and never stops

its spins through space

at supersonic speed

supersonic speed

  

 

Le Mat

 

He's been involved with people

most his life

he's had different styles of love

along the way

sometimes it feels like something new

those loves of different kinds

sometimes it's just another scene

in a rerun passion play

 

He's given lots of attention

to different looks

he's seen the eyes that make you cry

that make you laugh
