I get thoughts of you, like someone’s unmowed front yard
in the middle of an otherwise extremely tidy neighborhood,
and I get thoughts of you, like a person with a purple hat,
sitting in an otherwise ordinary laundromat and
+++ you are on my mind, and you will not get off,
+++ you shake me from the ordinary patterns of my life,
+++ you are on my mind, and you don’t go away,
+++ you wake me from an ordinary day
+++ and I get thoughts of you most all the time,
+++ thoughts of you most anytime.

I get thoughts of you, like a double rainbow in the sky
when all the rain has stopped and birds are singing aimlessly,
and I get thoughts of you, like a pin drop in a stone
cathedral where the walls and windows tower up & over me and.. CHORUS

I get thoughts of you, you’re the unmowed front yard
in the middle of my otherwise extremely tidy neighborhood…
