Simple Song of Mouse & Sky (Rachel Perry - Lafayette, LA)



                  (set to simple chords)

Little mouse staring at a round yellow moon;
“Is it small and close or big and far away?”
He thinks to himself as he ponders the moon,
“Yes I believe I'd like to visit it one day.

Here on Earth I've got this hole in the ground.
It's comfy and all but I feel my time's running out.”
                                                                          

The river runs high on the days that I
am feeling washed about and waterlogged down.
They tend to be accompanied by tears and raindrops.
From the sky and my eyes they work their way out.

So many things remain that I didn't get to say,
And my memories of you get just a bit cloudier,
                                  a bit hazier everyday.


            Me and Mr. Mouse,
            We like to drink coffee and discuss the clouds.
            I don't understand every word that he says but
                        that's nothing new
                        it's nothing different to me.
            In so many ways I don't understand everything.


All the great notions on the stars and the skies
Are just guesses the astronomers make.
I caught them discussing the new theory on Mars
Over whiskey and a line of cocaine.

Whatever their thoughts are I'll consider as I consider my own.
The truth is most likely a blend of it all, of the many versions you and I have known.

INTRODUCING HEADLINER: Through the Tears (Steve Duhon - Carencro, LA)

When I find myself alone in the pain. When I feel like I have absolutely no one to turn to. When I wish the hurt would stop. When I don't know what to do. When I feel completely lost. When my eyes just won't stop welling up. When I don't want to bother anyone with my hurt, my pain. When I know that everyone has other responsibilities. I don't want to interrupt them with my hurt. When I have thought about all of the ways to make the hurt stop. When I am tired of putting on my strong face for others to see. When I am tired of the tears welling up, filling already soggy eyes. When I am tired of the tears, tears that roll non-stop over my cheeks. When I don't want to hurt the ones that I love the most. When it seems like those who are supposed to love me don't get who I am. When no one has any idea of the pain my smile hides. When I am worried about being forever labeled by others. When I am the one that everyone counts on for strength. When I never show any weak…
