Lizzie 03:12
Lizzie had bright red hair worked at a hat shop near Leicester Square stood up a tad too straight her eyes shining, face striking, skin fair “Must be the devil,” they said, “Stuck up unlucky red. Must be the devil,” they said Dante could capture light flick of his wrist made canvas ignite he sought colors and focus thought art had grown blurry and trite One look at Lizzie's hair he saw beauty bright and raw one look at Lizzie's hair and he saw Calling her his muse his queen, his dove, a holy thing beneath his art and poetry Lizzie wedged her heart and she waited she patiently waited while Dante painted Hair crisp like apple bites faded into the summer nights blended into fall Lizzie took the laudanum she hit the wall her hair stayed bright red the light in her eyes fled her hair stayed bright red but the light had fled They cared too much about what people'd say what they thought art was for display not so for love rarely their love never their love

Rose Remains 03:32
ROSE REMAINS in what remains of the day rose petals on gravel decay rain eats away at disengaged silk and buds drink moonlight like a mother's sweet milk to cricket sonatas underneath midnight's quilt dreaming only in the dark of passion like a match sparked by uncanny circumstance I'm caught in a pyrotechnic trance until the beauty burns the hand that holds it I yearn for you but fear the pain as lovers lost have told it (refrain) my love, my darling where have you gone? I will wait for you until the silk slips through my fingers into the coming dawn I've got moth-like tendencies being drawn to a deadly light convinced I will survive the night never let go hold me tight

Radio 04:43
RADIO soon you will get off the train walk five blocks to me in the rain the radiator squeaks its piece of mind everybody's got an opinion around here here I sit with my greatest fear waiting for the snow to reappear darling you know the right words you always say them so I'll chop the onions while Miles Davis is playin on the radio the streets are crumbling and dirty everybody's in such a big hurry but there's a robin staring quizzically wondering why we can't see that we don't have sit with our greatest fear waiting for the snow to reappear darling you know the right words you always say them but I'm singing songs nothing like they are playing on the radio together we could tackle the odds throw that status quo away the future is broad the greatest type of beauty comes with effort over time ain't no better reason for being alive I don't want to sit with my greatest fear waiting for the snow to reappear darling this country's so pretty won't you come with me? we could go dancing in other cities who needs the radio?

MIDWEST MIDWINTER The sun is skinny in February and the clouds are growing close the blue plows trace the streets at sundown bracing for the snow Midwest Midwinter I confide in your stillness and your sweet sunrise So pretty so polite don’t you lie to me Don’t you lie Shops are full in February of roses and balloons Saturn with his rings to spare proposes to the moon It’s hard to listen In February The wind is so darn loud By the time the sun goes down you’re tired of the sound You’ve been wronged Make it right, don’t you lie to me, don’t you lie.
