T e n M i l l i o n

Standard

I won ten million quid the other day
-My lotto ticket only cost me two
And once I’d whooped a cheer and a hooray
I thought of what I’d spend and what I’d do.

I asked the houseless man who slept outside
-Perhaps he’d have a home if he’d have won
I asked the girl whose cancered Ma would die
-Maybe expensive drugs’d save her Mum.

I asked a bleeding country for some notes
To tell me what to do with refugees
I asked if I could keep their lives afloat
By being friends, erasing enemies.

I looked into the eyes of the abused
All lost, abandoned, empty with despair;
Sage counsel and compassion might be used
To build a building offering free care.

And all those people looked right back at me;
Material irrelevance not right.
I didn’t need it – gave it all away.
And once I did, I lived a wealthy life.

SO BEGAN

Standard

So began the sweet rescue of he

In his eyes was the death of a life

As I met love so he set me free

Both releasing and holding me tight

In his eyes was the death of a life

I knew then that he’d always need me

As he kissed me our day became night

And his own eyes they learned how to see

I knew then that he’d always need me

As he looked through my eyes to my soul

There he touched me majestically

As my logic and heart lost control

As he looked through my eyes to my soul

I could feel my heart melt as it wrote

A new story that hadn’t been told;

And sheer poetry oozed from the poet.

I could feel my heart melt as it wrote

Where infinity crossed on the eight

A new future connected us both

With forever our infinite fate

Where infinity crossed on the eight

We made love to each other at once

And we massaged each pain and each ache

And we shared all our needs and our wants

We made love to each other at once

We made spacetime replay on a loop

Love eternal was our sweet response

With a twisted and Moebius truth

We made spacetime replay on a loop

As I met love and he set me free

As our love I declared from a roof

So began the sweet rescue of he.
