Pearl

In a cynical world
Where people like me
Focus on the bad
Picking out the ugly
Hanging out the misfits
Feeling sorry for those innocent dreamers

Who walk around here
Thinking the world is so fair
That life is so nice
And we all get our share
And really believe
There actually is a meaning

And someone will meet up
At the end of the line
(Or where you get off)
And he’s a really nice guy *
When creating this stuff
He really had the best intentions

That’s when I stumbled into her…

Human pearl
Someone real
A whole person
So fragile

She never learned the word pretend
She never heard there were imposters
Because she is true to her friends
She honestly believe we’re honest

The face in the mirror
Is the same face
In the morning, in the evening
It’s the same face
Friday night, Monday morning
Because it’s hers

She never learned the word pretend
She never heard there were imposters
Because she is true to her friends
She honestly believe we’re honest

She never learned the word pretend
Someone put this fragile flower
She never heard there were imposters
In this barren soil and left her
She’s true to her friends
Among those hungry wolves, to wither
She honestly believe we’re honest
Among us hungry wolves, she flowers
But as the snake put our attention
To all the meanness in this world
She will open up our eyes
To all the beauty and the grandeur
To this radiant creation
And all the beauty and the splendor
Of simply being alive
Of just being alive

I’m not in love
No I’m not in love with her
No I’m not in love
I just love her very, very, very much
