Satellite Pictures (Sam Whimpenny)

Like to catch the breeze this evening
I feel in need of it somehow
It’s a curtain for a meaning
That I just can’t help you now

Oh how would I call it?
If it was mine?
Oh who would I leave it to everytime?

The cumuli cling softly to the sky
A silver shower cuts me dry
Spark and sparkle meet this morning
In a perfect alibi

Oh too many dreamers
Not enough time
Oh how could a night be cruel everytime?

I took what I thought I wanted
If lessons are learned
Cuts that don’t always heal
Have got to be turned to my advantage

There is no ring in this engagement
Just a word that sees it through
If my master’s taking chances
It’s only fair I do too

And if I ever let you know
What a waste my feeling for you would be

The bridge is coming here to meet me
I no longer need to move
And the image pecks at shadows
That in turn must be improved

Oh Satellite pictures
On your TV
Oh Don’t be disheartened
It’s only me.
