Lyrics



Diamond Filled Bouquet



Late in life I realized

Had a situation keeping me compromised

Not good with details

Unsure of time

I can get lost in tangents

That take me off line



CHORUS

Give me something that I love

I’ll learn everything about it

Like a cool hand in a velvet glove

I’ll warm up to it

If you can interest me with the words you have to say

I’ll cling to every one like a diamond filled bouquet



I love Billy Pilgrim

Because he understands

Being unstuck in time

Playing out that hand

If I didn’t have a schedule

I’d never know where to be

What day it was

Or who I had to see



CHORUS

Give me something that I love

I’ll learn everything about it

Like a cool hand in a velvet glove

I’ll warm up to it

If you can interest me with the words you have to say

I’ll cling to every one like a diamond filled bouquet



BRIDGE

Music clears a path

An equation of perfect math

Vibrating strings on my guitar

My thoughts will travel far

What to you might seem bizarre

To me are just the way things are



Attention deficit?

Dylan Thomas, Michaelangelo?

John Lennon, Lenny Bruce

Vonnegut, Van Gogh?

Would you put Mozart

On Ritalin today?

Limit Shakespeare

To what he had to say?



CHORUS

Give me something that I love

I’ll learn everything about it

Like a cool hand in a velvet glove

I’ll warm up to it

If you can interest me with the words you have to say

I’ll cling to every one like a diamond filled bouquet

If you can interest me with ideas you have to say

Is this affliction could it be the artist’s way?

If you can interest me with the words you have to say

I’ll cling to every one like a diamond filled bouquet
