A Beautiful Thing

In the ulcerating silence
Perspective comes
The way it always does - for it's ransom
So randomly...somebody calls...
The phone rings and it brings Niagara Falls
And 3 o'clock in the morning
"You'd better be dyin'"
- and you were -
So we talked about time
And where it went,
Unremarkable events,
And how one day took two days
And they got spent.
How you'd continue, carefully, in degrees
Trying to do one true beautiful thing

And your beautiful thing
It'd be
A beautiful thing
To see
That beautiful thing
Continuing

"I don't live there, I just commute," secretly cradling a joint and I might puke.
A-fumble with the keys, under duress
The point is, this is, practise duress
At 3 o'clock in the morning -

"You'd better be dying,"- and you were -
So we talked about things and where they went
Big remarkable events
And how each day's a new day
And they get spent
How you'd continue, artfully, like the breeze
Trying to do one true beautiful thing

Your beautiful thing
It'd be
A beautiful thing
To see
That beautiful thing
Continuing
Your beautiful thing
Continuing

Your beautiful thing
Will be

A beautiful thing
To me

That beautiful thing
Continuing

Your beautiful thing
Continuing
