Free Me

Why should I worry that you might not love me
You're not the only love I ever had
Your sweet memory will always comfort me
So why should I be feeling sad
Far as I can tell
You knew so well
I was always at the end of the line
I loved you as much as any man can
But not enough to make you mine
So long easy rider I know I'll miss you for awhile
But sooner or later I know that I'll forget you
Free me somebody free me won't you
Free me, free me from your spell
We let a good love die
We let it pass us by
Though you try to keep me hangin' on
But with all this doubt
It'll never work out
So tomorrow I'll be travellin' on

--Ken Hensley, ex-Uriah Heep

Uriah Heep

He went to Assen, which is about 60 kilometers from where he lives to see Uriah Heep -- they have a new album called Wake the Sleeper, after ten years. He wanted to catch some of the band's magnetism, if they had any. The lead singer looked young inspite of his age. He had long straight yellow hair. He reminded him of older pretty women who keep trying desperately to stay young and desirable. Anyway, he loved the music, altho he never had listened to it before. He danced to it without stopping for almost two hours; he thought that the crowd was too inhibited to show that much enthusiasm.

Dream

You must believe it,
Dream it, hope it.
You must see it fly
With your mind's eye.
Someday will come
Something will become
A shining butterfly
In the light-blue sky.

Be desireless

Or pretend to be. Don't show neediness.

Thee I love

Why do I love thee?
Let me tell thee why.
I love thee because
Thou art very pretty.
I love thee because
Thou maketh me happy.
Art thou wiser than me?
My, I do love thee!

My dirty little secret

That's me. I keep believing in myself. And in what I am doing. No matter what.

Coffie

What did I eat this morning?
Some cornflakes and pudding.
A cheese sandwich for dinner.
What will I have for supper?
Soft white rice, not so hot,
Something steamy in the pot.
I drink black cola, strong
Coffie all the day long.

Take heed

Kokorokoso kokoro mayowasu kokoronare
Kokoro ni kokoro, kokoro yurusuna.
--Takuan

It is the mind itself
Which deludes the mind;
Oh mind, take heed!

I'm me

Do you really know me?
I'm me! And I'm nobody.
If you are unknown like me;
Then you are very lucky.
Don't use your real name;
They can google you to fame.
But I will always be me.
How sad to be somebody,
How miry like a bog!

Dejeuner du Matin

Jacques Prevert

Il a mis le cafe
Dans la tasse
Il a mis le lait
Dans la tasse de cafe
Il a mis le sucre
Dans le cafe au lait
Avec la petite cuiller
Il a tourne
Il a bu le cafe au lait
Et il a repose la tasse
Sans me parler
Il a allume
Une cigarette
Il a fait des ronds
Avec la fumee
Il a mis les cendres
Dans le cendrier
Sans me parler
Sans me regarder
Il s'est leve
Il a mis
Son chapeau sur sa tete
Il a mis
Son manteau de pluie
Parce qu'il pleuvait
Et il est parti
Sous la pluie
Sans une parole
Et moi j'ai pris
Ma tete dans ma main
Et j'ai pleure.
