And saw the me I was inside.
Big blue eyes and auburn locks,
Rolled up skirt and blue knee socks.

Green the eyes that saw her lover
accidentally eye another,
Full her notebook, green the cover,
every look and twitch recorded.

Green the car she drove to tail him

As a generation came into its own
A feeling of revolution was growing
The seeds had already been sown

Coming in faster than speed racer
Heart colder than a glacier

Trying to duplicate the flavor
Another clout chaser
With or without a pace maker

falling into dream,
in softness a cloud
glowed at the seams

Bounced into rain
I was soaking up love,
rain brought blessings
and sings of the dove

Falling with stars
