Alive Once Again

by Gregory Snyder

Three A.M., insomnia stricken...
Would do anything to get some sleep.
A little blonde, living in California,
Catches my eye on the computer screen.

I'm curious, then interested.
God damn I'm nearly blown away.
Skilled no doubt, the words dance from her mouth,
As she expresses the things she may not be able to say.
Now I could be wrong about her.
Maybe I'll find out some day.

Driving dazed, down the road,
Constructing a chorus in my head.
Repeating the words, over & over.
Until I can write them down with my pen.
And when I did... This is what I came up with.

La-La Lady, You have inspired me...
Made me pick up my guitar and finger a melody...
Once again, once again, once again...
Crazy, I know how this may seem...
But you opened my eyes and allowed me to dream...
Once again, once again, once again.

She's maybe 23. Turning her dreams into reality.
Hey, man, I totally dig her style...
Seems down to earth, tries to put her friends first,
and will take her chances just to get a smile.
This is what I would like to believe about her.
Maybe I'll know in a while.

First impressions? well, where should I start?
Her beauty, talent or her heart?
She's already a work of art...
She plays the part so well.

La-La Lady, You have inspired me...
Made me pick up my guitar and finger a melody...
Once again, once again, once again.
Crazy, I know how this may seem...
But you opened my eyes and allowed me to dream...
Once again, once again, once again.




ABOUT THE POET ~
Just someone who likes to dabble in writing lyrics and poetry. I've always considered it a hobby, and have never taken it all that seriously... I enjoy it though.
