"Voices"

Music from a different room

Drowning my thoughts with sounds

I hear a conversation between a horn and a drum

Ya don't have to say much when you're having a good time

Listening to a good tune

A bunch of instruments getting along in one room

Tools in God's garden

Digging to plant seeds

Ideas for growth

To be reaped and shared

We provide for thee

I provide for you and you provide for me

A house that welcomes all players to the ball

Puffing out in the streets

I enjoy symphonies, jazz ensembles and big bands and big beats

Booming in my room

In my penthouse

Y'all are invited

Dress to impress yourself

On myself an impression I've made

Im impressed with my impression, it's a lasting one, I'm saved

By the sounds of my horn and my drum

Splashing around

Swimming in my brain

No need for lyrics

From lyrics they refrain

Paint me a picture

Paint me the sounds

Of voices

Giving and taking energy

Blowing it around

Listen close enough

The record spins on the ground

The needle digs in

Brown, green, blue and grey

Spinning

Spinning

Spinning

The day away

Listen

Hear

Feel

What the voices have to say

      Eric, I'll be there dressed to impress 'myself'. Could handle sitting back to a good jazz fest....but I'm afraid I am a listener not a player...then again I could man the record player..does that count? lol. Nice words.
