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.

Moving Forward (Louis Toliver Jr-Swartz, LA)

Step by step, I step     I hear the angels sing    Hope, today, they bring  Flying up with pep  I become Heaven's rep    Riding along God's wing
Moving forward can be hard     Struggling through today      Living life is not all play The fortune teller draws a card It warns that Fate has no guard     Never let pain get in your way
Flying high with my life      I am moving, so I'm living     Heart and heart, I keep giving I will one day meet my afterlife  Everyone's past contains strife       Let my future be thanksgiving
When the steps run out      I will just fly and fly and fly      I leave the past with a goodbye Up on God's wing, I won't pout  Going to heaven, I do not doubt     In hell, I was just a passerby 
Moving forward, strength will build     Letting go is the hardest part     Vitality comes from being smart Trust in those that are strong-willed Our honest actions will be fulfilled      I step, I sing to you, I fly, I depart
