8 Words: The Rolling Stones.

8 words – The Rolling Stones

I've been around for a long, long year
Been dancing smooth slow keeping myself to myself
Waiting for a girl she has no money
And she's got stains all down her dress
A poor girl in a rich man’s house
And no one knows, she comes and goes
Sometimes I think she's just in my imagination
Hey baby better come back, maybe next week
Hours are like diamonds, don't let them waste

There's one thing baby that I don't understand
Too deep in and you can’t get out
Can't you hear me knockin' on your window
You better stop, look around, here it comes
Already too late no point shutting the gate.
You can't have it both ways round babe
Cause you can't always get what you want
Love is like music. Its here, then gone.

If you start me up I'll never stop
Just living to be lying by your side
I can't let you slide through my hands
I'll give you half of everything I own
All your sickness I can suck it up
And it’s gonna be the death of me.

I already swallowed the bait and you're gone
I've dreamed you, a sin and a lie
Fire upon your wicked tongue… Lies, lies, lies
Why, why you have to be so cruel?
Hard to tell when your love's in vain
And I just can't pour my heart out

Don't question why she needs to be free
She was practiced at the art of deception
Why'd she make a fool out of me

I sit at home lookin' out the window
Sound of strangers sending nothing to my mind
Now all my friends are wearing worried smiles
Living out a dream of what they was
And now I'm out, oh out of control
Trying to hold on to that was impossible

-The Rolling Stones

Another 8 words. Yeah, it's been a while. A little more unoriginal. Love to do these. Reminds me of sculpting. And I hope you like the STONES. There's a few musical surprises coming. One artist... has posed a challenge as there's only a double album of material to work from. But what can I say except... poetry knows no limits. I'm absolutely excited for the next few. Time for the women singers. And time for a few unknowns. There's so much coming, going and being worked on that it feels a bit crazy sometimes. Best way to get things done... one thing at a time. Though asking a woman not to multi-task is madness. Anyhow, taking a break from the perspectives for a couple hours. Currently working on something for AWAKE, possibly Letters, among other things. More new coming. Enjoy. kisses. m.
