A song that contradicts Sinatra. Love is definitely NOT lovelier the second time around. Tilly is my cat. She is definitely lovely.


Wake, roll over and feel a scratch at the feet that were used to decrease the distance with a little help from paper and steel, and a lot of excuses and shared history.
Get myself out of this cocoon.
Get my head clear and clarify the view.

Arm the forces inside my head for the new day of dawnings and the new day of mis treads.
Walk out the door and the danger of it is the most satisfying step every experienced.

Where these feet can go?

Repetition does not imply that the same mistakes will be made this time.
As this tale of two cities carries on, I'll set fire to the epilogue.

With the armaments that I have in store for the coming months and the new world war.
Make your preparations, it's coming fast.
This future is a repeat of our past.

The soldiers turn to go and we are left alone.

They wouldn't wait but I would wait.
You wouldn't wait but I would wait.

Well I'm done waiting now.
I'm done as the time runs out and the clock restarts for a new countdown.
Don't let the ticking of the second hand put you out as you walk down the hallway to leave the house.
