with kisses like summer

melting into each other

their romance is part of your show

 

It's all in the words of a writer

and the song he sings for you

it's all in the words of a writer

and his single point of view

 

So many stories

are bound up in glory

some are grand and beautiful

some are righteous and holy

some are petty and phony

some are lies

and some are truthful

 

So you take what you need

and let the rest go to seed

sailing the odyssey of your life  

the stories that keep

develop like dreams

you recall from time to time

 

         Trends and styles rush up and go

         in waves across your spiritscape

         and a spotlight sets the world aglow

         for a moment in time and space

 

It's all in the words of a writer

and the song he sings for you

it's all in the words of a writer

and his single point of view

  

 

Words Of A Writer

 

Turn down the house lights

turn up the spotlight

a hot artificial moon indoors

sparkle like sunshine

though it's near midnight

they're waiting to hear you some more

 

Spin a tale of lovers

under the covers

with a full moon coming through the window
