lyrics

Hello Mary S
Is this the right address?
Thought I'd tell you of some things
That have occupied me this Spring
Life is fast and bright
Stay up late most nights
I got sick of being lazy
Now i want to move like crazy

I’m caught up in a social life that’s hard to sustain
While determined to read a lot and work on my brain
And do some hard work
On my artwork
I’m gonna have a website publicising my stuff
Though i’m scared of taking on more than i can carry off
If i don’t have a go
I will never know
 
That last email that you sent
Was so typically excellent
I love hearing your adventures
All the details that you mention
The same basic story
Cut down short might bore me
But elongated with digressions
Makes a far greater impression

And then you’ll tell me something that i feel to a “T”
And the fact we’re kindred spirits makes me feel so happy
I understand you
Least I think so
If it weren’t for letters i would feel so alone
There are things hard to communicate just over the phone
And you can re-read them
When you need them 

I’m on the full cafetiere
I’ve been warned not to go there
But the coffee madness
Doesn’t seem too bad yet
I love feeling i can be
Who i want, the energy
Though exhaustion’s never far
Makes me see things as they are
They really are
Really hard
 
Heres a letter then
To a dear friend
Just like that song by Kristen Hersh
It’s written in musical verse
Hope you keep good health
Take good care of yourself.
Love,
Ian
