I got a lot of clutter at my place,
most of it I should prob’ly throw away,
I always say I’ll clean it up some day,
but I get distracted..
and there’s a lot of clutter in my mind,
songs I should finish if I find the time,
I’m always searching for the perfect rhyme,
but that’s overrated..
+++ where was I? oh, yeah, I love you,
+++ and I’ll get better with practice, (watch me),
+++ you may say, “what the..”, “as if we..”,
+++ but I think we get better with practice, (I know I do..)

so I’m a sucker for the saddest eyes,
can’t see the target, but I’m aiming high, besides,
kindness is not a consolation prize,
she’s a smiling stranger..
+++ where was I? oh, yeah, I love you,
+++ and I’ll get better with practice, (watch me),
+++ you may say, “what the..”, as if we,
+++ but I think we’ll get better with practice, (I know, I will..)
+++++ so you see, whichever way it goes,
+++++ since no one really knows, I just watch the road,
+++++ and it’s true, whichever way you choose, I can’t really lose,
+++++ ‘cause I can use.. the material..

‘cause I got 7 stories left to tell,
so I’ll keep swinging till the final bell,
and you won’t catch me throwing in the towel,
‘cause this ride’s too lovely..

    Loved this one when I heard it at the South Side Works. Any chance of a listen button on this? 🙂
