Throwback Friday, Changing Things Around, by Ivor Steven,

Changing Things Around

 

Sipping on tea, from old Ceylon

This lazy day, all but gone

I’m changing things around again

Thinking I’m yesterday’s craftsman

Putting dreams up, taking walls down

Wandering around in my morning gown

Daydreaming again, oh, her in this room

Writing silly words, about sun and moon

Feeling lost within this empty saloon

Wishing for her to reappear soon

Replacing the sofa, for her to see

Reclining she would, relaxed and free

Oh, this void, she left alone for me

Returning she said, to share a Ceylon tea

  1. Hmmm the line “Daydreaming again, oh, her in this room” really is such a great line. I love how there is a tonal shift ans suddenly we are remembering again. It always happend this way with memories, they randomly flit through our minds. Thanks for sharing!
