Piano Blues Again

Lord Lord, send me an Angel down. Blind Willie McTell
Crash and burn, lightning

Call again.

Make it soon sugar,

A road song, railroad swing, fire

And Lord , Lord

Send me an Angel down.

Hollow words, blue eyes

All gone, all gone!

I lost it somewhere,

On a blind curve,

On a hot blue night,

In heat and wonder,

Lost it all.

Except love, redemption,

The songs,

The shades, the words,

Call again girl, I lost it all!

Wasted words, fire in the city heat,

In roads, outlaws and saints,

Raised to the ground,

And I learnt to be free,

No ties, no response,

Just wrecked resister wall of sound,

And fire plug explosion in the streets,

We danced, in waves of cool.

 Lord, Lord, send me an Angel down,

An angel of the first degree,

Hip to hip,

Hip to love,

I know you up there,

Above each move,

Each light night,

Sigh, shake it down,

Around these roads,

No carefree pain,

Only heart, shake it down,

Make us cool and full of love,

I had hate and lost it all,

No regrets,

Kneel and pray, you shake it down,

A little of your care,

Which passeth all knowledge,

Always kind, you shake it down.

 Blind love McTell,

Tell it like it is,

In nineteen ninety nine,

Two thousand and whatever.

Tomorrow, too far to plan,

Yesterday again,

On the Road,

Beat dreams of free,

The beat of the train,

The beat of the heart.

Her blue eyes sparkle,

Won’t let me rest,

On the road again.

 By this time of day I should be home,

Where cars spin on plastic tracks, And Lord, Lord

Send me an Angel down.
