lyrics

Little child with eyes so blue
If you could see the dreams
I hold for you
Just for you

Be it by fate or your own hands
If I could shape the mortal sands
They’d be kind
Kind to you

We may aspire to higher things
Like Shakespeare’s scripts and angel’s wings
But real life plucks the strings
and calls the tune.

Plodding through our course in life
Trying hard to harmonize
The Oxen and the Pearl

Monday morning’s early train
Monday night I’m home again
By nine.
But that’s real life.

And the then bills arrive in Tuesdays mail
and throw that mess into the diaper pail
But that’s real life
