Everything is just a vehicle for cheese.


Does your pillow know
that your head is on my shoulder?
The notion seems so stupid
but I wonder anyway.
Do the children in the streets
know they're getting older?
I guess they don't quite get it,
but it keeps happ'nin all the time.

I close my eyes
and start to see
everything I've been missing
since I started looking solely to the sun.
I find myself going back to me
and lovin' every minute,
seems so stupid now to leave
just 'cause we ain't happy all the time.

When I close my eyes
and we're alone,
do you become invisible?
When you walk away and she walks in,
do I really change at all?
Things keep on a-moving
even though we're sitting.
Trying to do our best
to hold back the tide.

I close my eyes
and start to see
everything I've been missing
since I started looking solely to the sun.
I find myself going back to me
and lovin' every minute.
Seems so stupid now to leave
just 'cause we ain't happy all the time.

I must be doing right
when I see the same things eyes closed
or open.
Must be heading down a path,
maybe treading toward a light.
Seems I'm always after something,
that's about how life seems to go.
Not enough satisfyin' portions for the
people of the world.

I closed my eyes
and began to see
everything I'd been missing
since I started looking solely to the sun
I find myself going back to me
and lovin' every minute
seems so stupid now to leave
just 'cause we ain't happy all the time

You can say what you want
I'll still sing my song
I'm on the road to contentment
Don't you tell me that I'm wrong

Loved this!  I really enjoyed the lyrics and the way it was written which was actually beautifuly done.  I'm kind of eagerly waiting to see if you post another song just so I can read that one too. <3 If you have time, maybe you could check out some of my stuff. None of mine was ever published in the mag, but still. Lol.

The best things in life are unseen, that's why you close your eyes when you kiss, cry, or dream.
What doesn't kill you, only makes you stronger.

I like the voice you've created in this
