Last dance with Mary Jane

“Time” by d. carney


Last year I wrote about “time” left and spent.  The comments that followed were many and  quite thoughtful.

I was the only person staying at the “Beach” this past weekend.   It can get a bit lonely and sad in that the season has come to an end.   I couldn’t sleep and turned the radio on to an oldies station.  I normally do not like to revisit songs of the past but at 3am with a long glass of “Irish” in hand I listened and once again thought about “time”.

Where’s everybody?

While listening I made notes of lines in some of the songs.  I will share them with you and perhaps they too will remind you of times spent.

…strange how the night moves…feelin all right…little things I should have said…things ain’t what they used to be…of faded memories…clowns to the left of me…jokers to the right…scuse me while I kiss the sky…I’m getting older too…may you stay forever young…then we will remember things we said today…if it makes you happy…a plane takes off from Baltimore,,,and we all go down together…just play me John Coltrane…Feels like I’m losin’ time at a breakneck pace….Oh bla di oh bla da, life goes on

…we’ve got a fast car….keep on searching for a heart of gold…where the streets have no name…going to use my, my, my imagination…taken care of business…everyday….poor poor pitiful me…you’re no good, you’re no good, you’re no good, baby you’re no good…do a little dance, make a little love, get down tonight…running on empty…under my thumb…don’t know what you’ve got till its gone…na, na, na, na, hey, hey, hey good bye…last dance with Mary Jane….

If you have “time” on your hands and know the song and the artist or group send it on and I’ll put one of my new rock sculptures aside for you.

Of course I had to throw in a Saturday sun rise.
