lyrics

when the sun is turned on i go on my way through the sleeping streets
the streets are all worn, the sky is torn, light enters the day
today i'm hoping that i'll meet my yellow rose girl
my shoes slowly move to the steady groove keeping my mind awake
i'll stumble and crawl through the same routine fighting fights that can't be won
today i'm hoping that i'll meet my yellow rose girl

my mind is turned on but my mouth won't say thoughts stuck in my brain
i will talk with you to help pass the time, forgive me if i seem incensere
today i'm hoping that i'll meet my yellow rose girl
peace and love i wish upon you, after all we all want a better world
news into me is fed as i wake from my bed, it all just seeps right on through
today i'm hoping that i'll meet my yellow rose girl

time kills the mind when it's spent being starved thinking the emptiest thoughts
breeze in the trees sets my mind free only until the night
today i'm hoping that i'll meet my yellow rose girl

truth i don't seek, i've been told lies before now i just want to live
i'll admire what's been, accept what comes, make good wherever i can
today i'm hoping that i'll meet my yellow rose girl
i know i'm not insane, sanity has no rules written for me read
i'm missing someone a hand to hold to help me through this world
today i'm hoping that i'll meet my yellow rose girl
