Motion Pictures (For Carrie)

(Written: t.b.d.)


Motion pictures
    on my TV screen,
A home away from home,
    livin' in between
But I hear some people
    have got their dream.
I've got mine.

I hear the mountains
    are doin' fine,
Mornin' glory
    is on the vine,
And the dew is fallin',
    the ducks are callin'.
Yes, I've got mine.

Well, all those people,
    they think
        they got it made
But I wouldn't buy,
    sell, borrow or trade
Anything I have
    to be like one of them.
I'd rather
    start all over again.

Well, all those headlines,
    they just bore me now
I'm deep inside myself,
    but I'll get out somehow,
And I'll stand before you,
    and I'll bring
        a smile to your eyes.
Motion pictures,
    motion pictures.
