Numbers

down and when I’m under it

my heart’s feeling over it

I can’t help but contemplate

the dissolution of the day

 

I was laying in bed last night when

these numbers just popped in my head

so I thought of what scale degrees

they would be if they were singing me

 

when I was woken up

I looked at the paper that I had

scribbled those numbers on

and this is the song

 

this song was born

this song was born

out of my nighttime slumberless dreaming

 

I am drinking tea

and feeling rather pretty

only because I am doing

what I was born to be doing

 

lately I’ve been feeling so

down, sad, ugly and out of control

and I know that it is because I have

not been doing what I was born to be doing

 

this song was born

this song was born

out of my nighttime slumberless dreaming

 

in the afternoon when sunshine

fills everywhere but in my mind

all I can is wander around

touching the ground

 

this is an attempt to make contact

with the wholesomeness that I lack

and it is just the notion

of my undying devotion

 

you’ve gotta go

you’ve gotta go

you’ve gotta get up and go

this much I really do know

 

I’ve gotta take this on
