Treasure Island

(13/10/1974 / Melbourne, Australia)

All That I Needed


I’m Sorry For The Pain
I’m Sorry For My Rain
Yeah I’m Sorry For That Dark Rain
I Finally Found Who I Am
You Never Forgot Who I Really Was
Always Offering Your Help
I Just Took A Long Time
And Finally Found My True Self


I’m Sorry For The Stress
Yes, I’m Sorry For The Distress
I Wasn’t Just Being Self Fish
Just A Little Stressed
Just A Little Distressed
That You Would Be
Taken Advantage Of
And Fooled
By Some Snakes That Never Rest

I’ll Always Care
Always Know Your True Hearts
As I Have From The Start
In That Time
And Over Time
Sometimes Lazy
Sometimes
Not Gentle Enough For You
Still Living In The Fast Lane
When It Was The Right Time
To Slow Down

I Would Never Lie To You
It Was Me Causing Your Explosions
No Fault Of Yours Anywhere And
Still Trying, Supporting Me
Still Trying, Not Letting Me Go In Your Heart
But I Was The One Who Was Corroding
And Should Have And Could Have
Easily Fixed It From The Start
I Guess I Never Got That Part

Over Time, You All Will See
The Real Truth About Me
I’m Not Worried Anymore
As Your Own Intelligence
Will Let You See,
What You Need To See
That I’m Just A Friend
With No Evil Agenda
Just A Friend Around The Corner
Yeah It’s Still Me

I’ll Always Be There
Be There For My Children
Anytime And Anywhere
You Know You Can Depend On Me
See, It’s Still Just Me

Nothing Here
Nothing Said Today Is Just A Line
It’s All About The Truth
And In The End
That Should Be Fine
All I Needed Was Time
Time To Heal
And Time To Deal
Like We All Already Know
All That I Needed Was Time To Feel.

Now All That Has Been Said
That Needs To Be Spoken
As You Now Know
Some Things In Me Have Always Awoken
Yeah Never Really Broken
When All Is Said And Done
There Is Nothing Lost
Yeah When All Is Said And Done
There Is
No Love Lost.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
