Regina Spektor - "Man Of A Thousand Faces" [Official Music Video]

Regina Spektor- Après Moi (Studio Version)

Roundabout (2003 Remaster)

2 poems : ' Don't Go Beyond Your Station ' and " Have A Muffin '

 - SHE SAID -


by Gordon Coombes

don't go beyond your station

she said

as the train stopped -

after all these years

she said

finally you are silent -

read only comic books

she said

while watching television -

never rely on anyone

she said

as she walked away -

in the end we are alone

she said

as she hung up the phone -


- COFFEE & MUFFINS:


HAVE A MUFFIN SHE SAYS -

by Gordon Coombes

the cold rain pounds

against the window

and she says have a muffin -

the brown leaves are blown

to the ground

and she says have a muffin -

the darkness surrounds us

our island of light fading

and she says have a muffin -

the shadows of a thousand crows

pass over

and she says have a muffin -

the universe is winding down

as the sun goes NOVA

and she says have a muffin -

the love we had for each other is dying

just a convenient lie to get by

and she says have a muffin -

death squads patrol the city streets

the madmen have taken over

and she says have a muffin -

empires rise and fall

millions on the tv screen are dying

and she says have a muffin -

thousands roam the streets homeless

and she says have a muffin -

another friend fails in their ambition

as she strikes them off her guest list

and she says have a muffin -

take solace in your success

forget about the rest she says

as she bites into another hot buttered muffin -

a thousand mushroom clouds boiling

above the earth

and she says have a muffin -

missiles rain down upon us

and she says have a muffin -

planes crash into skyscrapers of steel & glass exploding

while she says have a muffin -

friends are rungs on the ladder to success

ditch any who stand in your way she said

and offered her guests coffee and muffins -

And no tea & sympathy from me

she added -
