Peace of Mind

Staring at the rainfall
Beyond the broken glass
Listening to the wind blow
Watch the clouds as they pass
Only one thing that I need
I cannot find
Steady hands
A clear day
And peace of mind

Watching as the workers
Mend this broken home
Feeling kinda dirty
Feeling all alone
It seems they have found
What it is I cannot.own
A clear day
With Friends they find
And peace of.mind

I watch the rivers overflow
And garbage seems to come and go…where…nobody knows
I see the forest and the trees
Water has surrounded me with words that do not rhyme
With peace of mind

Guess I really lost it
When I lost all sense of time
Staring at the ceiling
Thru broken windows to my mind
I can still see you leaving
Taking whatever you could find
My hope My dreams
My peace of mind

That was just a memory 20 years ago today
Got my life together
We watch our children’s children play
Not afraid to say I thank God everyday
For the water that came
Washed my old life away

My emotion overflows
My woman loves me more and more
Why…nobody knows
I see the forest for the trees
Innocence is still in me, these days
It’s easier to find
Peace of mind
My peace of mind

Caroline

Everything I see reminds me of Caroline
PeopleĀ  on the beach
Waves breaking in time
Helps to clean the clutter in my mind
Leaves me alone with Caroline

A picture of a face frozen in time
I suffer over words they are hard to find
I cant tell you she is real
I cant tell you how I feel
All I know her name is Caroline

And I know the kind of damage this can do
Chasing after ghosts
Long since out of view
I can taste her lips
But I cannot find
My Caroline

The past can be recalled in many ways
Sometimes it is fleeting others go on for days and days
I gathered all the pieces I could find
TriedĀ  to put back together my Caroline

Every word I say reminds me of Caroline
Pieces of a puzzle put together over time
I miss everything I left behind
When I started out to find my Caroline

And I know the kind of damage this can do
Chasing after ghosts
Long since out of view
I can taste her lips
But I cannot find
My Caroline
