I’m sure I’m not a singer


I’m a carpenter in my mind
I’m a poet and a painter
But I’m sure I’m not a singer
Like you!
I’m sure I’m a builder living in a shoe
And I’m sure I believe
I’m in love with you
We’ll have 2.3 children
Or as many as we can fit in a shoe
Cause I’m carpenter
I can mend and make do
I’m a poet and a painter
So I can paint a happy scene
And romance the heart of a stone
Until it’s plunged into the sea
But I’m sure I’m not a singer
Like you!
I’m sure I’m a force of nature
And you’re a flower
Like a lion at rest
With a roar to open my breast
Oh I’m a carpenter in my mind
And I want to build you a home
We’ll have our penthouse on the moon
When we’re older because I’m dreamer
And I can see in the dark
As long as I hold you close to my heart
But I’m sure I’m not a singer
Like you!
So although I’m a poet I depend
On you: for my song
Cause I’m carpenter
Ill depend on you to pull my splinters
And heal my redwood heart.

Amongst the flowers I
am alone with my pot of wine
drinking by myself; then lifting
my cup I asked the moon
to drink with me, its reflection
