Words From The Attic... Ear To Ear











I'm almost 100% sure
that I wrote this while
in navy boot camp in
Orlando, Florida... 1981
or right afterwards.


Karen was in my "sister company"

and we became incredibly
close for a short while.





Ear To Ear

Softness
Freedom
A time of thought
Thoughts of me
Thoughts of you
Thoughts of love
That can't be bought


Missing a person
Who is on her own
Away from me
So daring and strong


Karen babes...
You are that girl
The soft little woman
Who shines like a pearl


Relax that mind
And find your place
A void in time
An inner world
To think out things
At your very own pace


Think of things that make you happy
Think of things that make you smile
And think of things that make you warm
And warm you'll be... in a little while





Ear To Ear
