Reply to "Great Lyrics"

Lastly (for tonight!), while the lyrics of Graham Parker's "Haunted Episodes" may seem a little sappy, they are perfect for the simple and lovely music that accompanies them...

I wonder what you are thinkin'
Under the rooftops there
Pullin tangles from your hair
I wonder if the water you're drinkin'
Comes from a purer stream
The one where sunlight gleams
Things round here dont get any clearer
Stuff that once seemed in reach
is not any nearer

I wonder if that house is still standin'
or did they knock it flat
Well thats progress that's that
I wonder who was more demanding
We were just young I guess
neither would settle for less
Still it's not a whole life story is it?
Its just a page I turned and
there you were in it

I wonder how you are farin'
not sliding down a slope
Takin the knocks I hope
I wonder where your eyes are starin'
Not into some emptiness
into someone's I guess
But that still won't make things any clearer
People seem to drift apart
instead of getting nearer

I wonder what you are doin'
under the evening sky
Watchin' your life go by
I wonder if that place is in ruins
and all the doors are closed
Thats just the way it goes
I wonder what there is worth keepin'
from haunted episodes
That briefly woke us from sleepin'
