Lost In the Sound

Some days, I miss the bad ole days of playing music and thinking that was where my journey would always lead.

Lost In the Sound
by Michael Romani

Taking all
All in stride
Taken for
A wild ride

Taken too
And through too
Many changes
Shaken through
All in view
Across the stages

Rooftop ballet
Tiptoed quietly
What can I say
Taken in so rightly
Singing songs
Nobody listens
Playing songs
Stage lights glisten

Each the other's audience
False fronts of diffidence
Prophets to the innocents
Hoped we'd make a difference

Hearts on fire
Down to the wire
Like guns for hire
Chasing our desires

Around
Around for the sound
Run aground
By what we found

Around
Around for the sound
Chase it down
Straight no chaser
Look what we found

They say
That we play
Too loud
Act
Too proud
It's not allowed
Chase it down
All for the sound
Run aground
Lost in the sound
