Piano and voice only this week. I’ve had this thing in the book for a while but never had what I felt was a good approach to record it with. TS@aW ftw! Bog all time to worry about it, so just do it.


Caught up in the lines,These crazy looping lines of love.
We got stuck in the rut,
The sticking chorus line that clung.
Oh I don’t know why,
I don’t feel right at all.
I guess I miss your meaning,
Interloper, what do you know?

You choose options to make you,
Feel more at home than you deserve.
You cause changings of meanings,
You doubt your course,
You fight the flood.
Oh I don’t think you’ve got it right or got it wrong,
Oh I’m not lost all I can say is,
“Good night, and good luck”.

I don’t know how I am changed,
But I won’t go back. I won’t let go.
I won’t look back, I will return,
I just hope I change enough.

Caught up in the lines,
These crazy looping lines of blood.
A night dying in your eyes,
A dawn ahead to love.
I guess I miss your meaning,
Where you come from I don’t know.
Stranger things have come from the night,
To comfort hope.

It’s time to change the channel,
Move your mind outside the obvious.
It’s time to learn a lesson,
Think yourself outside these clothes you’ve worn.

Oh I don’t know why, I don’t know why, I do not know,
I think I miss your meaning,
You’ve lost faith in what I know.
So let it go now, your anger, let it go.
So let it go now, your anger, let it go.
So let it go now, your anger, let it go.
