Acoustic Cope

I hate saying goodbye.  The course of finding the balance between remembering and feeling remains an unwieldy weight to bear as its course is almost inevitable.

I know from too many years that time does not wait but that life is mostly a waiting game until the wait is too long not to be over.

When this creep descends, as it does from time to time, I write dense and guarded.

You said cryptic.

I will unfurl my hands at 30 000 feet.  Not long before you arrive.

But still, I hate saying goodbye so soon.


"I keep thinking in a moment that
Time will take them away
But these feelings won't go away"

Onward!

This song makes me want to cry every time I hear it.

I absolutly love when a songs message goes right through you.

Reminds me of another song with a line I love.

Lost my shape-Trying to act casual!
(I always sing LOST MY SHIT, TRYING TO ACT CASUAL)

Talking Heads
Remain in Light
"Crosseyed And Painless"

Lost my shape-Trying to act casual!
Can't stop-I might end up in the hospital
I'm changing my shape-I feel like an accident
They're back!-To explain their experience

Isn't it weird/Looks too obscure to me
Wasting away/And that was their policy

I'm ready to leave-I push the fact in front of me
Facts lost-Facts are never what they seem to be
Nothing there!-No information left of any kind
Lifting my head-Looking for danger signs

There was a line/There was a formula
Sharp as a knife/Facts cut a hole in us
There was a line/There was a forula
Sharp as a knife/Facts cut a hole in us

I'm still waiting...I'm still waiting...I'm still waiting...
I'm still waiting...I'm still waiting...I'm still waiting...
I'm still waiting...I'm still waiting...
The feeling returns/Whenever we close out eyes
Lifting my head/looking around inside

The island of doubt-It's like the taste of medicine
Working by hindsight-Got the message from the oxygen
Making a list-Find the cost of opportunity
Doing it right-Facts are useless in emergencies

The feeling returns/Whenever we close out eyes
Lifting my head/Looking around inside.

Facts are simple and facts are straight
Facts are lazy and facts are late
Facts all come with points of view
Facts don't do what I want them to
Facts just twist the truth around
Facts are living turned inside out
Facts are getting the best of them
Facts are nothing on the face of things
Facts don't stain the furniture
Facts go out and slam the door
Facts are written all over your face
Facts continue to change their shape

I'm still waiting...I'm still waiting...I'm still waiting...
I'm still waiting...I'm still waiting...I'm still waiting...
I'm still waiting...I'm still waiting...

Hey Kim:

Thanks for the comment. This cut is one of Clarence's best no doubt.

I did not know the Talking Heads track you talking about but just watched the live video.

But then you would not be surprised huh? :0)

I like the lyrics.

So enjoy the Rosanna Cash show tonight and keep thinking Cope for your birthday ;0)

I will holla your way in a few.
