Intermezzo #185

The world was on fire and no one could save me but you.
It’s strange what desire will make foolish people do.
I’d never dreamed that I’d love somebody like you.
And I’d never dreamed that I’d lose somebody like you.

No, I don’t want to fall in love (this girl is only gonna break your heart).
No, I don’t want to fall in love (this girl is only gonna break your heart).

Intermezzo #184

I keep hearin’ you’re concerned about my happiness.
But all that thought you’re givin’ me is conscience I guess.
If I was walkin’ in your shoes, I wouldn’t worry none.
While you ‘n’ your friends are worried about me I’m havin’ lots of fun.

Countin’ flowers on the wall.
That don’t bother me at all.
Playin’ solitaire till dawn with a deck of fifty-one.
Smokin’ cigarettes and watchin’ Captain Kangaroo.
Now don’t tell me I’ve nothin’ to do.

Intermezzo #183

People hurry by so quickly.
Don’t they hear the melodies.
In the chiming and the clicking.
And the laughing harmonies.

Songs to aging children come.
Aging children, I am one.

Some come dark and strange like dying.
Crows and ravens whistling.
Lines of weeping, strings of crying.
So much said in listening.

Songs to Aging Children Come
Joni Mitchell (1969), Clouds

Intermezzo #182

I’m not content to be with you in the daytime.
Girl I want to be with you all of the time.
The only time I feel alright is by your side.
Girl I want to be with you all of the time.
All day and all of the night.
All day and all of the night.
All day and all of the night.

All Day And All Of The Night
The Kinks (1964)
