Why wait until the end of the tunnel?

You can make your own light, wherever you stand.

The sun has long disappeared behind the stage
I'm inspired and sweaty and feeling my age

The amplifiers still ringing in my ears

The smell of the Tagus draws in and I take my tired frame up winding streets
The caf├ęs are open. Piano music. Shoes on cobbles providing the beat

Sat silently listening to the late urban shuffle, people appear from narrow openings between tired, tiled buildings
Are the up late, are they up early?

It's been a long day. A day of fleeting smiles.
I think of you, and there's one more.

This one lasts.

I used to be afraid of the unknown
Until I was taught to see

It's me that is unknown
And these people are afraid of me

"So tell me, what did you wish for?"

"For my life to go on without you"

"Fine" she said "I'll head for the door"

"But if I've told you, then it can't come true"

Be flat, see sharp. A minor or a G?

Turn up the tunes when the world lampoons

The notes are there for you to see.

No one can know your pain
Not nearly as well as yourself
But the rope won't take it away
It just gives it to someone else

Buck the herd, ***** the wage
Let's be stirred into rage
Seems absurd in this age
To keep a bird in a cage
