just to amuse Dave

The rain it started tapping
on the window near my bed
It was a loophole in my dreaming
So I got out of bed
and to my surprise my eyes were wide
and already open
just my nightstand and my dresser
where those nightmares had just been
So I dressed myself and left them
out into the grey streets
but everything seemed different
and completely new to me
the sky the trees
houses buildings
eating my own body
and each person I encountered
I couln't wait to meet
and I came upon a doctor
who appeared in quite poor health
and I said there is nothing i can do for you
you can't do for yourself
he said oh yes you can just hold my hand
I think that that would help
so I sat with him a while
and I asked him how he felt
he said I think I'm cured
Oh in fact I'm sure
thank you stranger
for your theraputic smile
so thats how I learned the lesson
that everyones alone
and your eyes must do some raining
if you're ever gonna grow
but when crying dont help
you can compose yourself
it's best to compose a poem
an honest verse of longing
or a simple song of hope
thats why I'm singing baby dont worry
cause now I got your back
and everytime you feel like crying
I'm gonna try and make you laugh
and if I can't
if it just hurts too bad
then we'll wait for it to pass
and I will keep you company
in those days so long and black
and we'll keep working on the problem
we know we'll never solve
of loves uneven remainder
our lives are fractions of a whole
but if the world could remain
within a frame like a painting on a wall
then I thnk we'd see the beauty then
and we'd stand staring in awe
at our still life's pose
Like a bowl of oranges
Like a story told
by the faultlines in the soul
