Calico and Rainbows

29 04 2008

Calico and Rainbows, silhouettes that are edged with light
Malibu and freethrows, sitting there in the noisy night
Governments and tax woes, immigrants have their plight
Juliette’s in limbo, I can only hope they do what’s right……for us

But you could see what I have seen
you’d know we’re living in a dream
but whether it’s a nightmare is up to you
Agony and pleasure, insinuate themselves in ways
Difficult to measure, what you look for in your days Looking for your treasure, are you living in this haze Living at your leisure, have you found out what it pays

But you could see what I have seen
you’d know we’re living in a dream
but whether it’s a nightmare is up to you

Holograms and dreamscapes, scherazade before your eye,
Millipedes and cupcakes, both are me with grateful sigh
Naughty bit and snowflakes just a moment on the fly
Celebrate for your sakes, everyone goes to the sky

But you could see what I have seen
you’d know we’re living in a dream
but whether it’s a nightmare is up to you
But you could see what I have seen
you’d know we’re living in a dream
but whether it’s a nightmare is up to you

I had been playing these little guitar riffs for some time and as usually happens, the words just fell into play one day. Truth be known, it isn’t the easiest thing in the world to play and sing this simultaneously.
