Almost you
 
Under the shadow, some useless words
on a pale and dusty street, you and I: blue lights.

Night is in our command, moon shines insane,
softly whispers: for heaven's sake let's fall in love.

Frisco cabs say goodbye: when will I see you again?
In dream perhaps. I'll be your school companion.

Your buddy, your homeworks done, your weirdo chick
I'll be your bell, ringing after all, the pickels and the meat.

I'll be the closest thing to rock n' roll,
the first time for both, the last one before the yawn.
