Do You Know what Time It Is?

The early bird catches the worm.

'Do you know what time it is?
Either take a shower...
Or go back to sleep.
I'm not trying to catch anything,
But some 'zees' at this hour.'

Do You Know What They Are Doing?

slowly
they burn
little things
at night
to build
a fire

you know
what they
are really
doing?

they are
gathering
little things
to keep
the fire
alive

and they
keep telling
stories
to keep
themselves
intact.

Do you know what exactly freedom means?

Freedom means breathing deeply
Thinking loudly
Shouting noiselessly
Crying quietly
Loving honestly
Shining brightly
Treating fairly
Acting strangely
Singing lovely
Watching carefully
Smiling happily
Speaking voicelessly
Being friendly
Do you know what freedom means?
Have you ever thought about that?
Freedom means try to be YOURSELF

You know what

You know what, you can't guess how much I love you!
My mind has become a mosque to pray for you!

You’ve become my mind’s addiction,
You’ve become my eyes’ addiction!

My life was a desert without love,
I ran after the mirage a lot
To quench the thirst for my sweetest love!

Then you have come in my life
Like the clouds of monsoon rain
And painted my mind
With colors of love!

Do You Know What It's Like?

do you know what it's like...
to have nowhere to go,
nowhere to turn,
no one to talk to,
no one who cares,
no one who will listen?

to lose everything you've worked for?
to be homeless, hungry, and broke?
to feel the anger of hopelessness?
to act out of desperation?

think for a moment tonite...
do you know how many people
are in this position?
these people are just like you!
and but for a simple twist of fate,
you could be there too!

do you know what it's like?
do you give a damn?

Do You Know What It Means To Miss New Orelans

Eddie DeLange / Loise Alter
Do you know what is means to miss New Orleans
I miss it, each night and day
The longer I stay away
Miss the moist covered vines
The tall sugar pines
Where mocking birds use to sing
And I like to see the lazy Mississippi
Are hurrying to spring
The Mardi Gras memories
Of creol tunes that fill the air
I dream of oleanders in June
And soon I'm wishing that I was there
Do you know what is means to miss New Orleans
And there is something more
I miss the one I care for
More than I miss New Orleans

You Know What Happens When Love Is Gone

she knows what happens when love is gone:

the sun turns black
and the moon becomes red
and the trees become like
some grass in the
brackish water of
the marshes
where the air
stinks like a pond
where all the frogs
are dead
and rotten

where the dragonflies
are headless
where the wings
of the butterflies
turn into threads

the sea is gray
and the sands
are pins hurting
to our feet

the leaves
are skeletal
and the stems
are spikes
of bicycles
without wheels


you know what happens
when your love is gone

but take a look at me
when you finally decided
to throw my love away

i still bloom
as a mushroom
after the thunder
the lightning
and the storm

You Know What I Mean

Just as I thought Id make it
You walk back into my life
Just like you never left
Just as Id learned to be lonely
You call up to tell me
Youre not sure if youre ready
But ready or not, youll take what youve got and leave
Leave me alone with my heart
Im putting the pieces back together again
Just leave, leave me alone with my dreams
I can do without you, know what I mean...
I wish I could write a love song,
To show you the way I feel
Seems you dont like to listen
Oh but like it or not, take what youve got and leave
Leave me alone with my heart
Its broken in two and Im not thinking too straight
Just leave, leave me alone with my dreams
Youve taken everything else, you know what I mean

You Know What To Do

When i see you
I just don't know what to say.
I like to be with you
Every hour of the day.
So if you want me
Just like i need you,
You know what to do.
I watched you walking by
And you looked alone.
I hope that you won't mind
If i walk you home.
And if you want me
Just like i need you,
You know what to do.
Just call on me
When you're lonely.
I'll keep my love
For you only.
I'll call on you
If i'm lonely too.
Understand i'll stay
With you every day.
Make you love me more
In every way.
So if you want me
Just like i want you.
You know what to do.
Just call on me
When you're lonely.
I'll keep my love
For you only.
I'll call on you
If i'm lonely too.
Understand i'll stay
With you every day.
Make you love me more
In every way.
So if you want me
Just like i want you.
You know what to do

You Know What Theyre Writing About

You know what theyre writing about
Baby you know what theyre writing about
Its a thing called love down through the ages
Makes you wanna cry sometimes
Makes you feel like you wanna lay down and die sometimes
Makes you high sometimes
But when you really get in it lifts you right up
Aint it a wonderful game
Aint it a marvellous game
And when theres no more words to say about love I go
Meet me down, meet me down,
Meet me down by the river
Meet me down by the water
Meet me down by the water
Meet me down by the pylons
Meet me down by the pylons
Meet me down by the pylons
Meet me down by the pylons
Meet me, meet me, I want you to meet me - are you there
And know, know, know, know
I want you to meet me - are you there
I want you to meet me - are you there
And know, know, know, know, know
I want you to meet me

Do You Know What Is Means To Miss New Orleans

Do you know what it means to miss New Orleans
And miss it each night and day
I know Im not wrong this feeling's gettin' stronger
The longer, I stay away
Miss them moss covered vines the tall sugar pines
Where mockin' birds used to sing
And I'd like to see that lazy Mississippi hurryin' into spring
The moonlight on the bayou a creole tune that fills the air
I dream about magnolias in bloom and I'm wishin' I was there
Do you know what it means to miss New Orleans
When that's where you left your heart
And there's one thing more I miss the one I care for
More than I miss New Orleans
The moonlight on the bayou a creole tune that fills the air
I dream about magnolias in bloom and I'm wishin' I was there
Do you know what it means to miss New Orleans
When that's where you left your heart
And there's one thing more I miss the one I care for
More more than I miss New Orleans

You Know What To Do

(carly simon/jacob brackman)
The night is filled with pretty girls
Dancing shoes and flying hair
Not one of them would refuse
To follow you up the stairs
You could have your pick of them
Why decide to pick on me
You promised me youd stay away
You promised me youd set me free
Pounding of my heart
Trembling of my hands
Somethings Ill just never understand
Chorus:
You know what to do to me
You know what it does to me
You know what to do to me
You know what it does to me
You know what to do
The night is filled with shooting stars
I watch them fall cause I cant sleep
I pray that you wont call at all
Im still awake at ten to three
I hear your motorcycle roar
You pull up short outside my door
I dont know how I got outside
I dont know why Im on this ride
We make love like a house on fire
We make love like dogs gone mad
Somethings Ill just never understand
Chorus
Pounding out my heart
Trembling of my hands
Somethings Ill just never understand
Chorus

I Think You Know What I Mean

a young man sits inside his orange car
puts his legs above board
wipes his face, sweaty, cleans his nose
idly, looks around
in silence

he gazes upon a vacant road
there is no car
no people,

from where i am seated
i observe him
he is contented upon his idleness
i can't read his mind of course
whether there is sorrow
or bliss

beside his car is a wall
enclosing a garden of cassava and papaya trees
there is a guava tree
laden with its fruits

beyond us is the calm sea
plain blue as coconut trees tower
like guards

or lighthouses on an early morning
contemplation perhaps
about what to do next after this gentleness
this calm

will it be chaos? will it be too much noise?
can pandemonium be not far behind

the white chickens arrive and pecks upon some grains of rice
upon a bowl of clay lies the water that can satisfy thirst

you know what i mean
life is a variation of everything
full of color, wanting sound, longing for scents
expecting some happenings.

If You Know What I Mean

When the night returns just like a friend
When the evening comes to set me free
When the quiet hours that wait beyond the day
Make peaceful sounds in me
Took a drag from my last cigarette
Took a drink from a glass of old wine
Closed my eyes and I could make it real
And feel it one more time
Can you hear it, babe
Can you hear it, babe
From another time
From another place
Do you remember it, babe
And the radio played like a carnival tune
As we lay in our bed in the other room
When we gave it away for the sake of a dream
In a penny arcade, if you know what I mean
If you know what I mean, baby
And heres to the song we used to sing
And heres to the times we used to know
Its hard to hold them in our arms again
But hard to let them go
Do you hear it, babe
Do you hear it, babe
It was another time
It was another place
Do you remember it, babe
And the radio played like a carnival tune
As we lay in our bed in the other room
When we gave it away for the sake of a dream
In a penny arcade, if you know what I mean
If you know what I mean
If you know what I mean
If you know what I mean
If you know what I mean
If you know what I mean, baby
If you know what I mean
