TATUM

                                            TATUM

                                   Tatum, who can see
                                     beyond the bend...
                                    and will it ever end, 
                                     all in good time?


                                 Through dust and storm,
                                   your childhood dreams,
                                  of being who you are...
                                      an endless star!


                                       And you became
                                    a "diamond in the ruff" 
                                      with all your stuff.


                                        In "Paper Moon,"
                         an endless swoon,a father who'd partake..
                           beyond the patterns that would break
                           your heart away,and you would stray...


                                But you would see it through,
                                until the day you really knew
                                      just who you were...
                                      and there's no blur.


                                From a lifetime being battered,
                             torn apart, your heart, it mattered!
                            Through it all,you would be scattered...
                                          You would fall!


                                And all around you, it was there,
                              those temptations you would bear...
                                       with all your soul...
                                         to fill that hole!


                                 All you needed was a home,
                                       but broken dreams,
                              they would be sewn to never end!
                                       You couldn't bend...
                                           not anymore!


                              But you would keep on dreaming...
                                    find those moonbeams...
                                            in your life,
                                And then, someone may say...

                               "Keep selling those Bibles...Girl"
