but I said I'd go for a party

and she said

   "Well that's ridiculous

     'cause, Jerry, you know them"

and we just stood there

laughing at each other again

 

I hope things are going well for you

a lifetime holds no barriers

to things we have to do

the sailor sails when called to sea

the winds blow stronger steadily

he is what he must be

 

This singer sings of dreams and things

this song can hold a memory

to distant past

or in between

and a year holds months

and weeks

and days

and time can hold a year or years

like seagull flocks in sunset rays

 

Oh goodbye

I hope things are going well for you

yes, goodbye

a lifetime holds no barriers

oh, goodbye

for things we have to do

oh, Elaine

  

 

Song For Elaine

 

So the lady moved away

I didn't even say so long

I just said

   "Have a good night"

and walked away again

I didn't go to the airport

I told her I wasn't into mass drama

I said

    "Your friends will be there 

     acting the part that they choose to play

     in that space in time"
