Rich Man 05:28
What's up with you? I'm just hanging, hanging out in the balance, steering clear of jerks They still got my car at the Midas, can I have a ride to work? how you remind me, you help me understand What are you up to, mom? I'm just picking the moldy ones from a carton of blackberries Every day I gain a little perspective. Your love is such an important part of me how you remind me, you help me understand that I am a rich man, rich in love I am a rich man, rich in family I am a rich man, rich in friends I am a rich man What's up with you? It's just good to hear from you. I'm not always the best at keeping in touch Well it's not like you always assuage me. It's not like it's always enough but you remind me, you help me understand that I am a rich man, rich in love I am a rich man, rich in family I am a rich man, rich in friends I am a rich man, of course I doubt I am a Christian, that's why I doubt I am a rich man
Bicycle 03:27
(Song by Kath Bloom) Saw you riding your bicycle today we got laughing and you pulled me close I don't know what we do, but it's good and I know I would ride with you if I could You were stopping, please don't stop let's ride away, ride away, this time for good and let our love go the places that it should
Oh how my puny brain fails to provide I read your email three times you didn't wish any harm on me, and you did not wish me well you wished me nothing seen but no reply, come on, come on, come on You came to me for a minute, I got back to my chores I peeled an onion to the core If it makes it easier, who am I to protest? I guess it makes it a little easier for you to be a stranger
HMU 04:06
You've been claiming to live in the moment I don't know what that means Like a camera with the shutter wide open What does that mean? You've got a vision of how things ought to be How we could live in harmony Well, you clearly know the theory but you see so little harmony We got our differences of opinion But maybe we could still be friends so hit me up if you come around I hope you know I'll always love you But I can't blow bubbles forever There was no me, there was no you Unless we were together I guess it's better if we break it off But that doesn't have to be the end so hit me up if you come around
Fine 04:52
"A cold spring, the violet's flawed" Wrote Elizabeth Bishop Cold coffee on the card table Should I wake you, or shut up? At least I brought something to read It's a mystery to me The button is on the cord Depress and the current flows I said "It doesn't work like that." But what do I know? I see it flicker on your face I don't always get what you say How often you lit the way When the way was darkening I don't mean to exaggerate, Of course I had misgivings But it was always fine by me, It was always fine by me
