after every massacre
by some fanaticized pathological idiot
politicians call upon their citizens
to come together
and pray for the murdered and their families

this is absolutely appropriate
also absolutely inefficient

but it seems
that ever since 9/11
the nation only comes together
AFTER more of its members have been killed

I wish very much
that the nation
   AND politicians
would come together
BEFORE  the next massacre
and take appropriate action
to prevent such disasters
in the first place

Will you meet me in Santa Fe
I'll be there later
I'm gonna' leave right away
If I get there early
you know just what I'll do
I'll be waiting there for you
I'll be waiting.... there for you

Yes I'll meet you in Santa Fe
I'll be there later
I'm gonna' leave right away
If you get there early
I know just what you'll do
We can't wait can you?
We can't wait...... can you?

Been wondering lately
if anybody knows
what's going on
Thinking probably
that not really many
know even at all

They may catch on later
I won't wait around to see
I'll be gone long gone
Gone. I'll be gone long gone

Will you meet me in Santa Fe
I'll be there later
I'm gonna' leave right away

Yes I'll meet you in Santa Fe
I'll be there later
gonna' leave right away
If I get there early
you know just what I'll do
I'll be waiting there for you
I will...be waiting there
.......for you.

My Beloved Dove
and Dearest Darling
Oh where have you gone
Together We always
in the light of the dawn

We whispered Our promise
and sang of Our love
My Dearest Darling
wherever you are

Our soul together
true and complete
*** is Our witness
Our salvation
sure and indeed

Wife of my youth
Strength of Our truth
My hope and my faith
was immeasurable in you

My Dearest Darling
where might you be
My search is now over
for my dearest love true

Lost to the World
Forever lost unto me.
