Did You Know? – Written Saturday 6th November 1999 (Aged 24)

Did You Know?

did you know how i felt?
how it rained and then –
saturday, not so chained
eyes working strong
i hold your hand
the dance goes on and never stops
it just goes on and on
the lights go up
but we are already gone
i cannot tell you how i feel
i cannot explain,
all i can do,
is say, i feel strange
and that feeling of strangeness
does somehow feel good
and it is good to be with you
but then,
i always thought it would be
did you know that the snow
it piles up so deep
and in a dreamer’s wasteland
you came along and took a peep
