You Can’t Hurry Joe (draft 1)

I seek leave, leave to calm my mind
I seek to catch, catch the airline

But Joe said you can’t just regress;
no … um,
you’ll just have to regret,

he said, rescue isn’t easy:
it’s a game of spin and fake

You can’t hurry Joe
no you live with mistakes,
you gotta mistrust, and fall away
no spinning lies too much to take

Yet how can I
discount the shootings
until I find
an egress, to find my love again
and now the only hope
that pines you into mind
when I see you alive, yes, is
hope resigned away, yet

I remember Simon said
You can’t hurry Joe
no you live with mistakes,
you gotta mistrust, and fall away
no spinning lies too much to take

Knock, knock, at the door; who’s there about
no you live with mistakes
a Joe joke as he
watches his watch, watches coffins shout.

No, I can’t wait for a love
to find my love again

A folk singer’s dead,
a lewd lute his crime, and
I lose the music of you
in my frightened mind, and

Yes,
I remember they said
You can’t hurry Joe
no you live with mistakes,
you gotta mistrust, and fall away
no spinning lies too much to take

Oh dread.
