Chicago Low

     CHICAGO LOW
Sleep through the morning, rising at noon
if it's not over, it will be soon,
clearing my thoughts any way I can find,
getting them out of my mind.

Taking the El and I watch them go by
in every face and I'm wondering why,
clearing my mind any way I can do
it takes some time to forget but I do.

Gray suited ladies see me and smile,
promising I will forget in a while,
down on Lake Shore there's a summertime breeze
time is a secret  that nobody sees.

Down in the buildings, I look for the sky
all of my life is a low or a high,
never an even somewhere in between,
if there's a reason, it's one I've not seen.

Children are laughing down in a park
my wish for them is it never gets dark,
time is just something we have to go through
getting to where we are all going to.

Down in the street a little girl dies.
Someone is laughing and someone else cries.
She's just a number scratched on the wall,
Sleeping's not easy when you see it all.
