Both At Once


        Life, i'd heard someone say, is a comedy for those who think and a tragedy for those who feel. It seemed to me that it was both at once, even for those of us who don't do much of either.

When That Twilight Steals


The torch i carry is handsome
It's worth it's heartache in ransom
And when that twilight steals
I know how the lady in the harbour feels

Guess I'll Hang My Tears Out to Dry
