The World Is A Beach (FF 79)

from Freestyle Friday Vol. 1 by Philo Reitzel



Listening to an interview with Leonard Cohen’s son
And I wondered how we know if the show is ever done
When the sun is setting and the shadows run long
Will you remember my catalog or only one song
The questions that beg no answer
The world is a beach that I bring my sand to
Romantacize life and I live my fantasy
Can’t you see there’s nothing that I can’t do
And you the same true game
The spark to ignite our dreams like butane
Burn hot blue flame I’m shootin my shot with true aim
Open to embrace the new change
It’s a new version of him, don’t use a pseudonym
Mix the old style with the new the two will blend
Rewrote this verse three times I never mail it in
Force of energy I’m a sail to wind
My life was in a tailspin thankfully it righted itself
Or one of y’all would have to write of my death
But my heart beats strong in my chest
Make the most of every day and each breath
