Fame-A Winding Maze

Rode my bike to Frisco in the thick       Caught up with old friends in the park     Made love to my woman       While the sun became the dark          Hit chords of love      On every note that rang out          Give us more don`t stop         The audience began to shout          Short-lived this moment of fame          Too many diversions all about       Got lost in the smoke          And the glare of purple haze        Beginning of my wall of silence         No ending to this winding maze       Running through the motions          A pretender with nothing left to share           Mumbling words of discord          Drowned by my comrades musical blare         Carried this charade          Through two summer`s heat         Barely standing on my own        Disguised by others keeping the beat           Never showed for my final performance        Forty years have passed since that day       Disappeared into my world of mediocrity            Jumped on my bike and road away
