FACELESS
HE WOULDN’T EVEN LOOK INTO MY EYES
HE WOULDN’T EVEN KNOW MY NAME
I SEEN HIM SEVERAL HUNDRED TIMES
HE WOULDN’T EVEN LOOK INTO MY EYES
HE MUST BE BLIND
HE WOULDN’T EVEN LOOK INTO MY EYES
HE WOULDN’T KNOW MY NAME
I SEEN HIM SEVERAL HUNDRED TIMES

BIRTHDAY
A DOZEN DROPS FALL FROM YOUR FACE
SHAKING THE RAIN IN A QUIET PLACE
SHINING CLEAN A FRESH NEW DAY
WAKES UP THE WORLD IN A FRAGRANT BOUQUET
LISTEN TO THE SOUND OF A CONSTANT FALL
SKIES GIVE WATER FOR LIFE OF ALL
IF YOU REACH INTO THE AIR
RAIN WILL COME TO KISS YOUR HAIR
