Sometimes and Only

Little dumb words and thoughts

Sometimes and Only


The sound of the ocean
The 60 freeway sounding much like a river?s breath
The moon during sunlight
The endless streetlights I only start to count
I?m not sure what makes me happy
I write these words because I?m sad
You only sometimes make me happy
Where are you when I feel bad?

My name on a birthday cake
Fireworks in the reflection of a lover?s eyes
My song on the radio
A sweet face gazing right back at me
I?m not sure what makes me happy
Could this diary feel abused?
You only sometimes make me happy
I can?t be if I make you sad

Lights on wet streets
A sober night spent pleasantly intoxicated
A dollar on the sidewalk
An hour long phone call ringing as I walk through my door
I?m not sure what makes me happy
My mother doesn?t seem to cook enough
You only sometimes make me happy
Who said that you could live so far from me?

A slow walk to the car
Finding a cozy theatre with plenty of empty seats
A glowing glass of wine
An unrehearsed laugh at one of my silly jokes
I?m not sure what makes me happy
I haven?t a photo to place beside my bed
You only sometimes make me happy
For your ears I have many things I haven?t said

A whispered little secret
Baby pictures spread across a living room wall
A gentle first kiss
A minute of silence chased by a comfortable hush
I?m not sure what makes me happy
I shed a tear when she changed her mind
You only sometimes make me happy
I never wanted to be just friends

Cold nights in November
Hearing a voice you didn?t think you had missed
Remembering the smurfs
Dancing with a girl and not stepping on her feet
I?m not sure what makes me happy
I share these dumb words because they?re all I am
You only sometimes make me happy
I wouldn?t be dreaming at all if I could hold your hands
