Tryin To Rhyme Something - Poem by Robert Jackson

these rhymes to me, aren't as beautiful
i'm alone no one to talk to, sensible
musical thoughts, i walk the streets, in the rain
musical notions, and i feel no pain

listen to your radio
it can't compare
to the strings i played
as if you weren't there

between my head and your head
the music died in the air
and i don't have any friends
to help me keep time

between my head and your head
the rhythm lost in the air
the caffeine steals all the notes
and now i'm just too much
for your ears

how is it my fault
i don't have nothing to say
the music rules my brain
i swear i'm ok
but i got no company
i'm a lonely fish
in this modern sea
skyscraper touchdown
your fantasy
i just want my music back
my love, my everything
