One of These Nights
by Steven Craig
One of these nights... (music)....
you might find yourself sitting as you have always done
dreaming and musing alone.
A habit that no crowbar can loose
Embraced in the comfort of no answer for tomorrow
But making a living and paying a bill and making your bed.
One of these nights .... (music)....
Your eyes will stray towards the door
Your thoughts will precede your steps
In front of them will rush those dreamed images
Swept onto the porch and locked out.
For there is so much you would have done otherwise
But clouds got in the way ... (music)...
Beyond those clouds are your real dreams,
those you pin your hopes upon
It is not the possible fantasy that makes you live
It is only the firm reality you place your trust
And while you pine so for one
And the music never ends...
You hold onto the other without a moments hesitation.
