"Put your MP3 player on shuffle, and write down the first line of the first twenty songs. Post the poem that results."

Maybe the hardest thing I've ever done was to walk away from you
If you dance 'til your sense tingle and take a chance
I can see why you think you belong to me
Young and strong, Hollywood son

This ain't about the things I've done, where I've been or what I've won
If I wanted to, I could do anything right
One of these days, I'm gonna sit down and write a long letter
Hey you- out there in the cold, getting lonely getting old, can you feel me?

I don't understand about complimentary colours and what they say
Got a message in my head that the paper's have all come
You take Sally, and I'll take Sue...there ain't no difference between the two
Words are flowing out like endless rain into a paper cup

They painted up your secrets with the lies they told you
You can throw your luggage down- lose your cool and stomp around- but there's nothing, nothing you can do
When you were young and on your own, how did it feel to be alone?
It's a Saturday afternoon romance between a cowboy and a fool...and a fool

Forgive me if my fantasies may seem a little shopworn
Do me wrong, do me right- tell me lies but hold me tight
When I think of those Eastern lights, my goodnights, curtains drawn in the little room downstairs
I just opened up my eyes and let the world come climbing in
