Baggage ClaimWe are at the baggage carousel. My bag is easily spotted because of the twenty-foot palm tree sticking up from it. And there is yours, I see the sleeping lion through the slotted side and hear the animal's heavy breathing. There is a bag on fire, and a man picking it up from the moving strip with his bare hands. There is a woman with an invisible bag that is very heavy, judging by her posture and expression. Well, we have all arrived. Let's get out of the airport and into the city and see what this is all about.
L - K - JLook at Lake Elizabeth, the color of milk,and clouds of boats with sails of blue silk."Keep the sunrise on your left" is what the captain said.If she was right the city should be soon ahead.June or July would have been better for this.But we don't want to wait, so March it is.Impossible is only a word.Just the same, some things are absurd.Hope for tomorrow, breath for today.Grant me these, O world, I pray.Gray all day and black all night.I'm beginning to feel the absence of light.Fire trucks are coming from all around,to burn the old places down to the ground.Emergency procedures are well known:Take off your shoes and swim for home.Draw me a pint of something hoppy.I may get high but I won't get sloppy.Count the gains and count the losses:One resurrection and too many crosses.Breath is truth, but words can lie.Why are lies told? We all know why.And and and and andthe open heart, the open hand.

You and MeI can write you a poem, babe, fancy as fine filigree.Because I'm the man for you, babe, and you're the woman for me.I can bake you a pie, babe, better than your mama could do.Because you're the woman for me, babe, and I'm the man for you.I can chase a bear for you, babe, chase it right up a tree.Because I'm the man for you, babe, and you're the woman for me.I can walk eleven miles for you, babe, if you need me to.Because you're the woman for me, babe, and I'm the man for you.I can find what you lost, babe, any thing you cannot see.Because I'm the man for you, babe, and you're the woman for me.I can sing you Happy Birthday, sing it over again too.Because you're the woman for me, babe, and I'm the man for you.I can turn down the volume, make it as soft as can be.Because I'm the man for you, babe, and you're the woman for me.
