(Fade) Out In Caracas

I know she never told a lie
I didn't wish to hear
And when it comes to true love
She'll stay safely clear
Her memory will fade
Out in Caracas

Why she didn't go all the way
Guess I'll never know what hit her
Now I'm sitting here in stifling heat
Fading..Out in Caracas

They told me what I could write
It's not what I saw that day
Like not hearing from her anymore
When no news is bad news honey
It'll all fade
Out in Caracas

So I told another little lie
The way they wanted it to read
Now when it comes to the so-called truth
You've got just what you need
As it fade..fade..fades
Out in Caracas

I'm going all the way today
For that I'll never know what hit me
I'll be sitting here in stifling heat
When I fade-out
Lover..I'll be thinking of you
Lying in stifling heat
When I fade..fade..fade
Out in Caracas

below the subliminal
deep within manipulation
that's where tr^th resides

Brian Jones' Caracas
Incredible. A whole book in poem. An alluded to life. Better yet, an entire movie -- great visuals. Mood, longing, despair, coolness...(James Spader in lead?) namaste, Brad

fairgrace, brad & jrocket..
Thanks. This one almost "faded" away without notice..I appreciate you guys taking time here. This "lyric" means much to me...

More Words
i set to looking for your work with a higher word count. your mention of 'concise' and number of words used in intellectual conversation was my motivation. i expected your theory to be self-proven. this is very heart-felt and still capable of telling a linear story.

i do not do the human emotion work well. i prefer to write haiku. you can do both with equal talent.

i just noticed this is a lyric. lyrics frequently repeat, repeat, repeat. your repetition of 'fade' in its various forms takes the place of this while remaining in form. it would be interesting to read the music.

Oh love. I missed this and you and this and you and this...


I agree, however unsettlingly, with Data on some things. But I have my own opinions, so shall we dance?

It would help to know what we're dancing to as we discuss this.

I think this sounds slow and sad. Or should I say Sloe and sad? But there's a Comfort in it. Something I can't quite put my finger on.

Spin me slowly?

Lans sans passport..
Lans: To quote last line of "Polyamorous," .."It's been a strange day."

"Fade" has a Dylanesque/JJCale feel to it..Tropical blues...

I had planned on posting more lyrics at Lit, but got off tracks with the 3/5/3's..5/7/5/'s..& /5/7/5/7/7's.(all penned while/since here). My 'less is more' inclination took over.

I'm happy to see you here again. Hope to read you soon.

Thanks so much for continued interest. I really mean that.
