The First Day of the Spring



Happy the first day of the spring!

To make you want me I can fabricate the truth
I'll give you easy it'll keep me destitute
You hang me up on the line, hang me out to dry
And you got nothing to lose

You've got the story all made up inside your head
You write me out of it and use your words instead
You hold me just out of reach, but you keep me pounding the beat
To take all the soul you can get

You take no chances and you give no other choice
You fill your pockets and you empty out my voice
You use the shallow and old, trade the heart for the gold
You sell the song for the noise

  2. Happy Spring to you, Olga. Loved the video! Definitely brought a smile to my step and a boogie-woogie in my step. I just wish I could move like that on a pair of skates. Very cool :-)

  5. It began for us here with a heavy hailstorm which covered the whole garden and the palm trees - quite freaky!
    Happy Spring to you!

  6. Layers and layers of meaning there....that poem could keep me absorbed for ages....The first of spring is a good thought....making it easy for others is something we may be conditioned to do but we should not let ourselves be exploited jsust to make things easy for others - that's my take on this anyway.
