Decide Well
So many decisions racing .. tonight was easy. Go to the gig, Tash. Go to the Kings Arms and listen, ears pounding and blood racing. Watch forearms and bodies beat and throb in time with the thudding bass. Smile as the crackle of live-ness starts to etch itself on your skin again. Simple decision. Smile and stand on the tips of your toes to see the glimpses of magic in between the swaying heads and shoulders of the crowd. Smile and embrace the dear friends and reassure yourself that the network of this appearance won’t make you disgenuine. After all, you paid the price for authenticity at the door, checking the list twice and forking over ten bucks. He’ll be paying for it later but smile and nod, he’s hitting the rhythm right on strum and looking amazing in that red shirt. Embrace the tall one and the shorter one, let the eyes gleam a little; just enough to ensure that both interests are held, theirs and yours. Let the melodies protrude from the the chaos for a moment. Breathe deep. You’re at the gig, and it’s good. The room is still just as big and just as small. There are so many beautiful people in the room and they’re all soft enough to smile back.

Song Of The Moment : Stay Or Leave
Dave Matthews

Maybe different but remember
Winters warm where you and i
Kissing whiskey by the fire
With the snow outside
And when the summer comes
In the river
Swims at midnight
Shiver cold
Touch the bottom
Starry night
With muddy toes

Stay or leave
I want you not to go
But you should
It was good as good goes
Stay or leave
I want you not to go
But you did

Wake up naked drinking coffee
Making plans to change the world
While the world is changing us
It was good good love
You used to laugh under the covers
Maybe not so often now
But the way I used to laugh with you
Was loud and hard

Stay or leave
I want you not to go
But you should
It was good as good goes
Stay or leave
I want you not to go
But you did

So what to do
With the rest of the day’s afternoon hey
Isn’t it strange how we change
Everything we did
Did I do all that i should

That I coulda done

Remember we used to dance
And everyone wanted to be
You and me
I want to be too
What day is this
Besides the day you left me
What day is this
Besides the day you went

So what to do
With the rest of the day’s afternoon hey
Well isn’t it strange how we change
Everything we did
Did I do all that I could

Remember we used to dance
And everyone wanted to be you and me
I want to be too
What day is this
Besides the day you went babe
What day is this

What do you think?
