POLLY'S SONG                                         AND THEN IT WAS NOW

 Can’t see for looking

I don’t believe my eyes

I haven’t slept for days

My brain is leaking

The flood is on the rise

I haven’t slept for days on end

And yet somehow I’m grinning

I guess I must be winning

And yes for all my sinning

 I must be doing something

I must be doing somethin

I must be doing something right

 Can’t sing for sighing

My axe is out of tune

I’ll play it anyway

Can’t speak for trying

My breath is on the moon

I’ll say it anyway

And yet somehow I’m grinning

I guess I must be winning

And yes for all my sinning

 I must be doing something

I must be doing something

I must be doing something

I must be doing something

I must be doing something right

 Doing something right

C 2001Chris Guard

 

Tangerine sun does a belly-flop

On a river of chopped-up blue

Heat-haze jumps like a jelly-bean

To my cheek from the tow-path brew

I think of you

It’s easy to

And then it was now

And then it was now

And then it was

I live my life from tide to tide

No history to shelter me

It got so good I must have died

And gone to heaven deep inside

And then it was now

Flood-lit sky it’s a chilly night

I’m singing a song for you

Blood runs high though you’re out of sight

I feel everything for two

I think of you It’s easy to

 And then it was now

And then it was now

And then it was

I live my life from tide to tide

No history to shelter me

It got so good I must have died

And gone to heaven deep inside

And then it was now

 And then it was…
