Fits & Starts (Brian Keenan Cover)

[arrangement and words by brian keenan © 2015]

fits and starts, the pumping blood,
built half of a bridge and dove into the mud,
the salmon fog, with the silhouette dogs,
hear the ringing clock back where I came from,

stained glass walls, with character flaws,
the surreal, impressionist ponds,

you’re always in love when you’re grasping at straws,
living into the next moment that comes,
and it’s so strong I can’t get enough,
she’s in my chest breathing through my lungs,

i’m always changing my mind,
and i’ve got no sense of time,
and i don’t know why,

my stomach is tight and the thoughts ignite,
turning the corner i’m always surprised,
the gasoline lights and your skin is so white,
it’s like seeing the moon rise the very first time,

stained glass walls, with character flaws
the surreal, impressionist ponds,

the approaching dawn, the effects all gone,
we roll up the blanket and move along,
traffic is slow we’ve got nowhere to go,
imagine crashing the car over and over,

fell into a dream, saw what became of me,
with sunken eyes, no will to fight,
holding a map by the candlelight,
with a pocketknife whittling a pipe,
talking to a dispassionate sky,

i’m always changing my mind,
and I’ve got no sense of time,
and I don’t know why,
