Lyrics

Riding the bus in the morning I become the acute observer of light
Fully energized soaking up the maximum
like the sensor on my finger in the hospital
Ninety seven percent
I can easily be the brave circus person
With a colorful life
or the junkie with the monkey so selfish

Sometimes I am numb from the neck up
and my body becomes a wheel chair
transporting my numb thoughts
through the air

in the summer, at night
when i was a kid
listening to the crickets singing there song
well darling that is what you did
that is what you did to me
that is what you did to me
that is what you did that is what yo did

i can be the lover
right off of that tarot card
oh when you look away some times i am the fool

walk across the room
and open the door
there is a story of misfortune
and fame we know so well
of the leaving and the receiving '
and a winter sunrise
the heat and the light
rising up through the trees
well that is what , that is what you have done for me.
well that is what , that is what you have done for me.

wonderful tune tim
love the tambourine. great opening and build into the second verse. i love the lyrics of this one, and it's got a sweet easy tune. really cool how you bring instruments in, then drop them out then bring them back. it really moves this song along. definitely had my toe tapping. great song.

Read
the lyrics before starting this one and was really wondering how on earth you could fit them into a song, but you do it really well!

Affirmative, though complex, and despite the occasional wry, ironic touches, a touching and sincere work.

Enjoyed. Thanks

Marc

poem on the bus
Really nice arrangement & mix. Good use of dynamics. I like the imagery in the lyric "can be the lover right off of that tarot card", "junkie with the monkey". I like the melody and vocals. My only nit is that it ended abruptly.
