Those Words
Sharon
A few more days and I'll see your face
You, up on the stage; me, in a crowed space
You'll sing those lusty words, like all the times before
For a moment, those words are mine, it is me you adore

Your smile will not mislead me, that is what you just said
You look at me and chuckle, with easy access to my head
It's what you've always wanted, it's always been your plan
To have everyone watching you, that true "semi charmed man" 

The power I gladly hand you, I wondered if you knew
Those words you wrote so long ago, I need them to be true
I see myself on Haight Street, walking with you to the store
For one quick song that's where I am, then push replay for more

A commitment for me hasn't always been true, for now I shy away
I know those words you wrote by heart and live them everyday 
When I get sad and cannot think, I run to you once more 
Where smoke rings drift to the midnight sky, just like the time before

Some say we've lived here once before, for those I think they're right
You say to put the past away, please don't hold on so tight 
The calm sense of "one" for those I see, gathered at your stage 
Have music and those words to thank for the best friendships made

So next time, my friend, when you feel wounded and alone
Think about the family you've made and all the love you've known
We turn to you when we feel the need, and for us you're always there
It's those words that give us strength and let us know you care

A few more days and I'll see your face
You, up on the stage; me, in a crowed space
You'll sing those lusty words, like all the times before
For a moment, those words are mine, it is me you adore
