Written in a canoe

lyrics

Some of us never do well with the daily transition
Swimming from the pools of moonlight to the shores of the land of the sun
Causing my eyelids to swell as my dreams commit treason
Some of us never do well with such abrupt change of season

I like you, Time. I think I'll keep you around. As long as I'm captive in this mind, time is on my side.

Promise me never to sell any of your grey matter
It's never easy to tell those who tell the truth from those who flatter
Keep all your dreams to yourself, for they will lead you to safety
In the ocean of mental health they can be your diving bell

I like you, Time. I think I'll keep you around. As long as I'm captive in this mind, time is on my side.

Picture yourself in a swell caused by the moon's persuasion
To rise again after you fell, what was down would now be up
Some of us never do well with the daily transition
Just sleep it off, sleep it off, sleep it off in the bliss of intermission
