The Best Of Times

Clearwater moon over an open sea
It might be the night
But it?s warm to me
Nothing around me smacks of reality
But I don?t mind
No I don?t mind

Suicide roads climb from the winding pass
Clinging on tight
To the mountain side
White-knuckle ride
Might very well be our last
But I don?t mind
No I don?t mind

A million stars over Tuscan hills
Now that one I?m sure is a satellite
I couldn?t imagine a more perfect way to spend the night

Scraping the bow into an open lock
Nothing to do
Just watch the water flow
Don?t give a dam
About the hands turning on the clock
No I don?t mind
No I don?t mind

Drinking a toast to the setting sun
We?ll put the world to rights you?ll see
Just four happy drunkards enjoying the perfect company

Manhattan lights shine on the Brooklyn shore
Impossible heights
Couldn?t see the ground
But I could see John
Lying wounded there on the floor
In my mind
There in my mind

The best of times

Nice guitar work as always.......good are right up there John......

Very nice, light and breezie feel. Interseting sectional differnces in the music. A very nice musical journey!
