It's Everyone's Birthday

(Michael Caufield)
It’s Everyone’s Birthday


Someone told me not to go to the Emerald Isle


cause someone like you would never want to leave


Someone told me not to set my sights too high


cause someone like you my friend would get eaten alive


))))))now everything is swirling passing by just like a dream


((((((as a woman’s voice or maybe God’s keeps whispering


it’s everyone’s birthday ^^^^^


Someone told me not to dream beyond my means


but as Hamlet said, "What is a man if his chief good be but to sleep and stuff his gullet?"


Someone told me not to listen to negative jerks


but that’s already one of the few dreamer’s perks


((((((((((now everything is shining with the light of unquestioned being


)))))))))))as emanative powers keep elaborating


it’s everyone’s birthday ^_^_^_^_^


am I still falling?


why haven’t I hit the ground?


who in the world in their right mind could keep looking for something


that can never be found?


you can’t stop now -- you might as well believe


cause there’s miles and miles to go before you get to sleep


miles and miles to go before


you sleep


 


will I ever be ready to go?


why must I be so infernally slow?


and now I’m up I’m on my way I’ve been advised


by a Guinness-breathed Irishman in a pub who told me, "You take everything you hear and divide it by five."


and carry the remainder
