NO REPOSE

©2014 Charlie Wood / VHB Publishing (BMI)

 

you were always my favourite

even before I knew you

people can see right through you

to those fingers crossed behind your back, so

 

lemme hear what you're listening to

peel me one of your hard boiled eggs

you only feed a dog that begs so

if you pretty please

 

and I will tell you where the sunshine goes

when the cars all park and the bars all close

it goes sailing over a deep, dark ocean

cause there's only motion.  there is no repose

 

every kiss is a kiss goodbye

every bruise is a souvenir

hold on tight till they disappear

harder to remember now we're

 

held up by the parade

wipe those tears off the steering wheel

no one really knows how you feel

do not be afraid

 

because those headlights will not understand

they illuminate but can't comprehend

they are seen and see and still they have no notion 

that there's only motion.  there is no repose

 

and I will tell you where the moonlight goes

while the bluebird sings and the green grass grows

it goes rolling over a deep, dark ocean

cause there's only motion.  there is no repose
