lyrical intent












the days they linger like the night's so long
the winter's warm and the west wind's strong
a hint of spring falls on deaf ears
making music that no one hears

but it's alright, one must have faith
they say the good always comes to those who wait

a noon time flourish with a handmade riff
i'm a misfit like montgomery clift,
clark cable and marilyn monroe
i'm in the desert with nowhere else to go

but it's alright, one must have faith
they say the good always comes to those who wait

deep velvet blue on a canvass made of stone
words with lost meanings stand stark and alonw
cryptic words of memory missed
don't worry jack: it's just the waiting list

but it's alright, one must have faith
they say the good always comes to those who wait

the good always comes
