catch a ride on time, killing all the false gods in my life could you write my strife, on a book on a desk under papers and a pack of cigarettes I’m the same in my mind, in my mind I’m the same, i’m feeling’ fine, feeling' fine singing oh I’m alright, I’m alright I'm alright and my eyes, they were open and my face, it was strange; and the day that I wake up there won’t be any lies, no more lies and so in the sun, I feel my life coming on. it’s coming on I’m the same in my mind, in my mind I’m the same, I’m feelin’ fine, feelin’ fine singing oh I’m alright, I’m alright I’m alright, I’m alright

I can love you better I can love you when you're mine all mine I’ll build a house so fine and in this house we will sing and in this house we will fight and in this house we will love hear the floors creak at night and in our room I will swoon to you in the light of the moon you will see me come to you taken by taken by your beauty I will come to you

the tips of the palm trees like the fingers of the vultures moon among the clouds is the eye of the grackle the water in the sea holds the ashes your bones gave wind blows my salty hair it’s the same wind on which the pelicans soar back and forth, back and forth the tips of the palm trees like the fingers of the vultures moon among the clouds is the eye of the grackle

I see your lion teeth on top of, on top of me smiling with your eyes like diamonds that melt the window pane don’t you know that I can see you? and I’m not wondering if you’re staying; I don’t care; go ahead one of these days you’re gonna leave that man, and you won’t have anyone around but the ghost of him don’t you tell me that I’m the crazy one , you are much more crazy than me I can see it written in the lines of your forehead, don’t you lie to me don’t you even think about it, no. as soon as you do, I will know I will dance, dance, dance my heart away, 'til the Earth will shake and break beneath my feet and I will smell all the sweet smells I will climb a ladder to your bed, I will creep to your head and I will listen to your stories I will look to the stars on the ceiling and I will look upon those circles and wonder where it is that I come from and where I am bound to be I know that I’m a simple form and I deserve to be adored and I will be the one that I have been waiting for and everyone will see that we have come to be something more yes, you will be something more as I am
