From my boat I can see your house
And when the lights are on
I can watch you move
Hear the wind whispering your name
Twice the encouragement
Of the real you

Callie if you really want me to
I can always get you down
If you got the money for me
Callie in the summer rain
You will be kept dry you see
If you got the money for me

Making amends for distant wrong

You can run away
Leave your books behind you
But you should look back twice
Just to be on the safe side

From my boat I can see your house
But now the lights are off
And there is no one home
You are just like an avalanche
Cold as I might have guessed
But at least I’m covered up for now

In a big, big way
I am really small
I get off my feet
But I’m still distant

Don’t you just love goodbyes?

Callie let us get it over with
I can always get you down
If you got the money for me
Callie in the summer rain
You will be kept dry you see
If you got the money for me

Most of our lives we try so hard
To find the time

I won’t care for you
Like I’m really supposed to
There are things I’ll do
That could really hurt you

Don’t you just love goodbyes?

10 Books

Rules: In a text post, list ten books that have stayed with you in some way. Don’t take but a few minutes, and don’t think too hard — they don’t have to be the “right” or “great” works, just the ones that have touched you. Tag ten friends, including me, so I can see…
