You can’t always get what you want

No, you can’t always get what you want.

But if you try some times,

you just might find,

you get what you need.

 

Who do you want to be today?

Who do you want to be?

Who do you want to be today?

Do you want to be just like someone on TV?

Just like somebody on TV.

 

Sweet dreams are made of these.

Who am I to disagree?

I traveled the world and the seven seas,

Everybody’s looking for something.

 

Some days are dry

Some days are leaky

Some days come clean

Other days are squeaky

Some days just drop in on us

Some days are better than others

 

I’ve found a new friend, underneath my pillow.

 

She’s a maniac, maniac, at your door.

And she’s dancing like she’s never danced before.

 

Enid we never really knew each other anyway.

Enid we always saw right through each other anyway.

It took me a year to admit it was over

And it took me two more to get over the loss

 

 

Where are you going?

To see a crazy old man.

What will he tell you?

He’ll tell me where I am going.

What will you do then?

I might just quit my job.

What will you do then?

I’m going to find my way home again

home again

home again

 

Namaste,

Kevin

  1. Thank you for returning with your thoughts and all. I had missed them; got me thinking, which has usually been a good option
