Sweet Moment

They’ve waited all week to have a sweet moment alone

Work often leaves them worn & weary to the bone

They’re dancing in the hallway where the dim lights barely glow

Dancing to the music, of each others heart & soul

There’s none else that either one would rather have to hold

The joy they have in each other is some of the greatest they’ve known

Jerry

Jerry was a dreamer & a schemer of a man

Always coming up w/all sorts of plans

Some of his plans, they weren’t worth spit

but the thinking bulb in his mind was always lit

he’d do anything he could to get food

& make rent

from selling costume jewelry

down at the local flea market

to working rides and booths

on the carnival circuit

People were always surprised

how creative he could get

Coming Home To Stay

Thirty thousand feet above the ground

Staring out a window, looking down

Flying over the Astrodome,

he can’t wait to get back home,

It seems his family always ends up waiting there,

cause he’s got another deal to make elsewhere,

He told them, “This time I’m coming home to stay, I swear”

He has flashbacks of his daughter, at four years old,

w/pink ribbons in her hair

now she’s graduating college & he wants to be there

He knows her growing up without him hasn’t been fair

Not Okay

If you can’t work, I get it, I sympathize with you

but if you’re just lazy then that’s another issue

If you really need a hand up, brother, that’s alright

but if you’re playing the system you’re begging for a fight

If you’re drinking booze & shooting needles in your veins

While you live off public assistance, that’s not okay
