A Product

She walked through the forest
Picking up the leaves as she went
Walking about through the trees
Through the trees
She walked back out to the park
The sun was bright in the sky
She arranged the leaves on the grass
On the grass

Who are you?  What have you got inside?
Who have you been?  What do you need to hide?
Don't be afraid of what you might not be
Don't stay away from all the little things that you dream
That you dream

She painted a perfect picture
Of her journey from the start to the end
She arranged the leaves on the grass
On the grass
Each leaf was a person she'd met
Each pattern a lesson she'd learnt
The forest a lifetime of stories
And events

The picture lay there, complete
The sun was bright in the sky
The leaves reflected the sunlight
Like a mirror
The mirror she looked in closely
She saw what she had become
A product of all the leaves
All the leaves
Every one

The Want

I dream it all everyday
The where I want to be
The what I want to do
The what I want to see
The dream I need surrounds me
The look upon my face
I want it all to be like this
There is no better place

I travel to the place from the dream I have
Miles and miles away to the dream I have
Gather all the things to do the things I dream
Paint the picture all around
The picture of my dream
The picture of my dream

But in my mind I'm back in time and I receive a gift
I open with excitement - I feel my spirit lift
I know I have just what I want and yet I force a smile
I stare and dream of memories of waiting all the while

I want it all to be like this
I want it all to be like this
Like this

All My Tomorrows

You can listen to me, it's not hard
You can use what I say or discard
You can look at your mystical cards
If I pay you to
You can ask me questions in disguise
Try some initial letters for size
You can be sure that I won't realise
If I pay you to

Look at the wall in front of you
Behind it are the days you cannot view
Behind it are the songs that belong to all my tomorrows
I can paint any picture then make it true
I'll only think you know if I want you to
But no one can see over the wall into all my tomorrows

You can cold read all day long
You can encourage me to play along
You turn it around if I say that you're wrong
It's as clear as day
You can use the tricks of your trade
But you'll never call a spade a spade
And show the truth behind your charade
It's as clear as day

Time

I wanted time but when it was mine, did I waste it
All was fine, I had crossed that line, but it's wasted
Or so they say when they see how I barely tasted
The time I found to go overground, I misplaced it

But I had a laugh despite what I did
I did what I wanted, I felt like a kid
I had a laugh despite where I’d been
I did what I wanted now look what I’ve seen

I wanted time but when it was mine, I enjoyed it
All was fine I had crossed that line, to avoid it
Or so they say when they see how I almost destroyed it
The time I found to go overground, I enjoyed it
