Bob lind “lost” songs
YOU'RE GOOD FOR ME
Love you like the sky's design
That rolls and changes all the time
Diamond daydreams glide and shine
And lead me deep inside my mind
Where you can't go
But still, I know
You're good for me. You're good for me.
And I wish that I could make you see
That all the things you want for me
Are just the things I want to be
Love you like the autumn sun
Sometimes here and sometimes gone
The gypsy paints my fortune on
The garden wall.
But soon it all will fall to make you see
Love you like the Prince of Dreams
Who only hints at what he means
And carries thoughts and changing scenes
Along the narrow space between
Tomorrow and before
And leaves them at your door.
Four o'clock the doors are locked
And all my friends are gone
My silver strings will spin and ring,
Long into the dawn.
I can't stop now.
Salty Blue. I'm blaming you.
Everyone was tired or they had someplace to be
No one seemed to want to keep the party going but me
So here I am
Shining through Salty Blue.
THE SEA WILL TELL ME WHO I AM
Some empty day, I'll walk the sand.
The sea will tell me who I am.
I've been a long time waiting
On downtown sidewalks for love.
I've had my manhood taken
By mannequins with long white gloves.
They built a church; they built a bank.
The streets are full, my mind is blank.
I could believe in giving, but I don't have a thing to take away.
I've heard a million vioices, but still I don't have anything to say.
This other mind, nobody knows.
I've gone as deep as words can go.
I've been a long time feeling
The world keep winding along.
I've been to all those places
Where all those faces belong...
Except for mine.
Some empty day, I'll walk the sand
The sea will tell me who I am.
The first time I saw you, I saw you with him.
I asked about what kind of scene you were in.
You just shrugged your shoulders and grinned at your friend.
I was so glad when he left without you,
And you know that I knew that you knew.
So I played my music and listened to you
As you spoke of your problem as if it was new,
To be hung up on someone who doesn't love you.
I knew exactly just what I could to,
And you know that I know that you knew.
Everybody's living, learning the hard way, baby.
Can't you see that I've been there before.
Look at me from where you are, I;m not far away, Baby.
You've never been so bewildered, so blue
And you know that I know that you know.
Looking back, I remember how you had me locked up inside then.
And if I gave you have a chance, you say you'd like to try again.
But all I've got to do to pity you is think about the friends you knew.
Aint' it a drag, they way they always had to cover up for you.
And We'll All Go Down Together,
When it's time to go.
It only matters whether
We learn from what we know.
BRANCH OF DEAD LEAVES
Sweet Heart of the afternoon where will you be tomorrow?
You’ve got so much love inside your self with too much pride to borrow
Why can’t you see your only free to walk around your prison? Dragging your branch of dead leaves. Dragging your branch of Dead leaves….
Those that turn their backs on you are easily forgiven. Obligation scares you . Your hung up on stringless living. Why cant you see your only free to walk around your prison. Dragging your branch of dead leaves. Dragging your branch of dead leaves.
