I’m still an animal

I change shapes just to hide in this place
But I’m still, I’m still an animal

PussyFoot also has an amazing friend who can fly

 

 

One Step Ahead

I tried to find my way back to you

but the path had mysteriously dissolved

There were things i wanted to tell you

many things i wanted to share with you

now they are left dangling like split ends

I stopped there for some time flatfooted

At the place where we left off

That space where we laughed without a care

Enjoying each other’s company

Feeling like every day was a holiday

And believing it would never end

Those days of fire

There was an air of sadness left behind

I smell something familiar but it was gone in a second

No amount of deep breathing could return that day

Only fragments remained

Sprinkled like fairy dust and scattered too sparsely to collect

It was gone and sadly reminding me was a song in the distance

A tune you once hummed while you were working

I loved to watch you as you carefully handled things

Joyfully and playfully I see our hearts

Skipping over the beat

Like teenagers fumbling with love

We shared many moments

which i had strung together like pearls

and methodically I rotate each one

to relive the precious feelings

I filled the spaces in between with plastic beads

many colours shapes and sizes

they were reminders that did not compare

nothing compares

your eyes sparkled with every smile you opened

every gentle touch was infused with love

the many chuckles in resistance

struggling to hold back laughter

confirming the snug fit we had found

within each other

the mischievous one and

the rebel without a cause

Where are you now?

I think of you so often

It’s because I’m looking inside

this open heartscape

How will I find you again?

I suspect you discovered your wings

And flew ahead of us

So I will keep moving forward

With loving hope and renewed faith

Believing you may be clearing the road ahead

For us stragglers

Always one step ahead and ready for anything

I love that about you

That’s what keeps me going

Pussyfoot hot on the trail….. Only one step behind

SPLIT ENZ – One Step Ahead

 

hold the course…

…Wherever You Are

Wherever you are
It’s 3 a.m. and I’m awake
Imagine the light
Upon your blue transparent face
Through coloured glass
It filters down to warmest red
Faded
I’m the one who reads your mind
See my life in your design
True companion at your side
You’re gracious and good
When all around is turning bad
Restless and brave
When laid upon suburban grass
Your timing is right
Remove the sad persistent thought
Hold the course
I’m the one who reads your mind
See my life in your design
True companion at your side
I’ll give you something, for when I’m not around,
To make you smile
And if you think it then it must be true
If only I could make it through
Climb into my bed,
Wherever you are
Wherever you are
Your timing is good,
Remove the sad persistent thought,
Hold the course
I’m the one who reads your mind
See my life in your design
True companion at your side
I’ll leave you something for when I’m not around,
To make you smile,
Outside that wasteland
And if only I could make it through
If you think it then it must be true
Ill be Wherever you are

Wherever you are

WILBURY twists and turns

He no longer has time for her

He grew tired and bored with that muse

Something changed

Some things shifted

Was it him or was it her who was used?

HANDLE WITH CARE “reputations changeable, situations tolerable…… I’ve been uptight and made a mess but I’ve cleaned up myself I guess Oh the sweet smell of success”

Handle With Care

They no longer see eyes to eyes

perhaps they never did

reflections of light cause optical illusions

roam answers remaining well hid

LAST  NIGHT “I looked in her eyes they were full of surprise”

Last Night

Behind the laughter lines

the smiles scream history with all its pain

rising to the surface

believing it’s worth doing all again

MARGARITA “down from the blue into the gray, where I stood I saw you walk away……we better keep trying till we get it right”

Margarita

They can’t quite put their finger on it

the blame just wanting to be scratched

An irritation festers under the skin

Their wounds are so well matched

LIKE A SHIP “On the sea, Her love rolls over me……Like a weeping willow her love hangs over me, go away, go away, Let me be”

Like A Ship

Dismissing all the wonderful signs

dark gems with crystal visions

The brighter the light they project

The darker the shadow mission

HEADING FOR THE LIGHT “my hands were tied, Jokers and fools on either side……  now I see the hole I was in”

Heading For The Light

Suspicious minds breeding

swivel neck paranoia

Both seeking response and affection

double trouble setting out to annoy them

RATTLED “I get rattled even in my sleep….  I get turned around, I get twisted, and I’m up and I’m down…….. baby is there something wrong with you”?

Rattled

Round and round in circles of cycles

conjuring up some bigger drama

will this nonsense come to an end

paying back it’s ping pong karma?

Not Alone Anymore

 

Playing the part she projected

he finds a new subject for distraction

set the stage with a junk yard mind

avoid and deny this fast lane addiction

DIRTY WORLD “he loves your sexy body, he loves your dirty mind…… ”

Dirty World

Please Forgive his misapprehension

let him finish his proud Hail Mary

He rounds up all the prostitutes

then wants to run the missionary

SEVEN DEADLY SINS “number  seven was when you touched me and told me why…seven deadly sins that’s where the fun begins”

7 Deadly Sins

Meanwhile the whole world is watching

their interaction is a global sensation

God be with you means “goodbye”

try expansion from mind made contraction

SHE’s MY BABY “She better not leave me, And go out to Hollywood…… she’s stumbling through the door, She’s coming home from places she’s never been before

She’s My Baby

Stirring the pot while spilling breadcrumbs

turn up the heat and lets go faster

Someone left the cake out in the rain

It all adds up as a recipe for disaster

COOL DRY PLACE “and when you checked the manual, You kept inside the case, It said ‘put it in a cool dry place”

Cool Dry Place

Was their precious energy wasted?

Disappointment layer after layer?

He’s finished with the white knight armour

Reluctantly signed up as dragon slayer

NEW BLUE MOON “I was waiting…..looking for a new blue moon”

New Blue Moon

He thought she was worth it

She thought he was fun

He chases gold under rainbows

This pussyfoot follows the sun

INSIDE OUT “put down your dream pipe, what colours do you see, It’s got to be yellow, Don’t try to fool me”……”don’t it  make you want to twist and shout when you’re insides out”

Inside Out

They search for the same thing

True love and happiness

So he shakes his can furiously

Spraying over the world’s mess

THE DEVIL’S BEEN BUSY “in your back yard…… sometimes you think you’re crazy but you know your only mad….. showing no remorse, glowing from the poisons they’ve sprayed on your golf course”

The Devil’s Been Busy

His mind bent, bitter and twisted

She retired from figuring things out

Then he got nasty fuelled with anger

and she began perfecting her pout

RUNAWAY “tears are falling and I feel the pain….. my little runaway”

Runaway

He said She said

HEART dots….—-lines MIND

Differences acknowledged

It’s just the way we are designed

LIKE A SHIP “Go away, Go away, Let me be, Haunting me like a ship on the sea”

Like A Ship

Remarkable connectivity explored

Untangled yet forever joined

They struggled to win each other’s heart

And totally missed the point

CONGRATULATIONS “ you never did know when to stop”

Congratulations

We’re all in this together

going out on a limb for someone

It could lead to falling out of your branch

Hopping mad or free falling as one?

TWEETER AND THE MONKEY MAN “taking the whole thing personally…… never saw them where they standing never saw them when they fell”

Tweeter And The Monkey Man

They enjoyed each other’s company

Once upon a time

But when they both grew up

They didn’t match the nursery rhyme

NOBODY’S CHILD “and no one there to notice them or take away their fears”

Nobody’s Child

The day he noticed that pussyfoot

Her heart opened to discern

Piercing through the outer layers

He cracked her shell so she could learn

IF YOU BELONGED TO ME “you’d be happy as you could be …..”

If You Belonged To Me

With his laser beam precision

Etching initials so careful and deep

Making it public about his intention

What you sow you’re entitled to reap

POOR HOUSE “ will you bring me diamonds and hang around my door”

Poor House

He led her along all the way

Pushing her to the outer edge

Expecting she would eventually fall

So he waited here on the ledge

WHERE WERE YOU LAST NIGHT “were you with someone who reminded you of me……you weren’t waiting where you said, you sent someone in your place instead”

Where Were You Last Night

He kindly held the reins on her buggy

While she searched for a steering wheel

Time differences in their travels

Seemed unbelievable yet so real

YOU TOOK MY BREATH AWAY “you knocked my headlights out…..seems like I’ve lost a wheel”

You Took My Breath Away

She’s no longer a part time passenger

Her own chariot is a faithful companion

Riding up front with her head held high

Destination set for the new dominion

MAXINE “she never came through here again….. time plays tricks on your memory…….they found her blue seraph here on the ground”

Maxine

The foundation of boundaries and status

Follow the achievement of self rule

Wherever they traveled while searching

Unfolded lessons at New Earth School

WILBURY TWIST “put your hand on your head….lift your other foot up, fall on your ass, get back up, put your teeth in a glass” “It’s a different dance for you all to do, spin your body like a screw”

Wilbury Twist

Travelling into different timelines

The Pussyfoot’s pads sense and feel

Treading lightly not to upset anyone

Trying to understand what is real

CONGRATULATIONS “you never did know when to stop”

Congratulations

Opening her mouth however

she usually changes feet

like Bridget Jones saying all the wrong things

while trying hard to be discreet

 

So have they come full circle

Back to square ONE and ONE

Spinning on the turntable

Allowing time to come undone?

 

Where ever the road may lead them

She’ll never be sorry to have known

The boy who kindly held her hand

And watched from afar how she’s grown

END OF THE LINE “it’s alright, riding around in the breeze, waiting for someone to tell you everything, everything’ll work out FINE…….live the life you please, it’s alright

End Of The Line

thought Management

Out of sight searching out of mind

Helpful stints and roles we play blind

Disconnect before they project

Expectations on the table to reject

A silent reaction colours your every move

Retrogrades and renegades etch the old-age groove

Disc Spinner

PussyFootNotes: all retrograde cycles compel us to return to the scene of the crime

falling at your feet

PussyFoot went weak in the knees !!

the HIGHlight on my final day at Byron Bluesfest… Neil Finn

video footage 10 years earlier

Anyway, pussyfoot squeezed in down the front at Crossroads and when this Kiwi behind shouted out We LOVE you Neil… Neil looked straight down toward PussyFoot and said Thank You

Neil then proceeded to strum PussyFoots third favourite Crowded House song Fall at Your Feet and you guessed it … tears rained down on me and the scarf of the lady in front… she cried too and we hugged (you had to be there)

Thanks Neil and your band, especially Nick for his long distance travelled from Ireland to be there – Awesome concert loveLoveLOVE

CROSSROADS emergency (X11)

I like this version too
