Begin Again
Pop song, Demo (1985), from Sentimental
Begin again
The words
Aren't clear,
I don't understand
What's that
You say?
The sounds
Touch my ears
But the meaning
Is never at hand

Time after time
It's the same old story
Line after line
The text rolls on and on

I can't explain
It's like
A dream,
A nightmare recalled
When words
Were things
And I
Could touch but not
Understand them at all

Time after time
The words lose meaning
Line after line
The thoughts begin to blur

You think you're clear
The words
Were chosen
With care in your head
But begin again
For I
Am at a loss
To know what was said
