Track Name: Shine
In my room
far away from the twists and shouts,
I felt marooned, on an island on my own.
I close my eyes and drift away,
out of my inner space,
so far away
until I sleep and dream of you

When you smile,
you shine a little light my way
Tell me why we don’t do this every day,
and make the world a better place for you and me,
and everyone we know

Shine a little light my way.
Track Name: Lucky Strike
I wandered through another dream, as I often do,
and you were there aloft, barely in the room
that I left behind at midnight, as my eyes succumbed to gloom,
and from your plume you took

Another hit off that Lucky Strike
Death comes at midnight

Beauty queens on magazines, asking for light
and you were there in print, a creature of the night.
Looking at the mess we’re in, hearing echoes from Berlin,
and love from both sides now.

I recall the elegance of cigarettes,
when smoke was style, in your face at dinner time.
Now the smokers are in exile.
Asking for a light on a cold winter night

Give me a hit off that Lucky Strike
Death comes at midnight

Like the voice from a golden throat,
that had smoked all of her decades,
as it descends from sultry evenings,
down through darkened rooms,
to land in a well-lit deadly croak.
Track Name: Only Love
The world is a spinning wheel
Spin around, how do you feel
as all the saints go marching in?

With many arms and many heads,
avatars and acolytes lead the angels across the plains

Trumpets blare and horses ride
Two by two upon the flood tide
All of creation by their side.

But only love,
Only love is real to me

So many names to memorize.
One name you must not write
Twelve signs that reach across the sky

At one with nothingness
And karma’s pettiness
All of creation by you side.

Only love
Only love is real to me
