I try to keep thinking
Someday there will be time
To live inside my memory
As if for the first

I know I still have that tape
I recorded songs off the radio
Maybe just this song will do
"Veronica" by Elvis Costello

Or something by Tin Machine
David Bowie's hard rock experiment
Nobody really remembers anymore
I feel like I'm in that room

Because I am is what I'm saying
And still there's no time
Just one thought after another
Ad infinitude like this

You see it takes a lot of effort
Just like a bump on the head
A kiss will make it better
As long as it finds the right place
