FREE CEE starting over midst merlot and clover


You ask me if we can start over as if we just met
with all the errant paths i've taken to forget
let the past be forgotten and today become brand new
and all my expectations depend upon you

we can lay in the clover sipping on Merlot wine
me thanking God that i've got time again to make you mine
we can kiss that kiss that never happened and suddenly slipped away
so perhaps we can make this a brand new love kind of day

sometimes I feel as if the world has left me far behind
with too many bad memories pressing on my mind
the reasons I am the way I am have little to do with you
so I wonder if we can make today seem brand new

I understand your anger and festering frustration
I understand how you can be repelled against such aggravation
I know why you seem angry so often and with such intensity
but honey I swear it's due to my hyper-sensitivity

I hurt for the man who hurts and cry for the woman who cries
I ain't got time for no excuses, exclusions or any sudden surprise
I'd like to know what is and isn't true
and if we can make our love today seem brand new

before all the turmoil when my pain and disappointment took control
before the universe stole my verve, excitement and my soul
so I rebelled against my nerves and let my home be a hollow in a tree
and all the problems we've had originate from me

so you ask if we can start over as if yesterday didn't exist
and let the happiness of tomorrow patiently persist
well baby I tell you that I never want to say goodbye
so if you want to start over honey let's both of us give it a try
           2012......PHREEPOETREE ~free cee!~

    Perhaps we should all stop crying and start together, I have
