And from the section Brand New Old Sayings

The only way you can turn off being an artist
Is if you've never been one


Isn't it more like
Truth and Consequences


Moments of songs and trains
Everything we wanted to
Moments of spring and rain
Moments of love and you

This triad

Where is my freedom today

But in the everyday simple things
The beans and cheese and meat
The fact that the roads are clear
And there are still good people to meet

We must all learn to carry on
And it is at times very painfully true
That the weather is not the only cold
And the sky is not the only one blue
