Too Much Fun, Too Little Love

'You can destroy your today    
worrying about tomorrow'  
              -Janis Joplin    
   
   
'When I sing, I don't think,    
and when I sleep, I don't dream.    
I am always awake, feeling everything.    
Life is short, no time to dream,    
but when I'm wide awake, I scream    
and my soul hangs out    
like the beatnik soul of everything...'    
   
'I wanted a true friend,    
it came and went and so did    
the gigantic love in the crowd of eyes,    
but the rush never dies,    
only I do in receiving it.    
But, I get up again    
in some strange way,    
maybe in some lonely new day...'    
   
'To whiskey-soaked blues notes    
I wail and strain.    
To all who doubted me,    
see how I fly now in sequins and glitter,    
ball and chain left behind    
with loneliness.    
Where did the time go,    
there is no tomorrow,    
just a real long today.    
   
One day, I'll live on in pictures and sound.  
When I die, I'll be a new girl again;  
it's nothing to worry about...'
