Bradley James Finlay




The following poetic verse was written for me by my partner (a.k.a. Casper) whom is also a musician. He also composed music and I recited the text.


SUNSET

The sun rises in the east, west is where it sets
sometimes I go through a whole day, doing what I forget.
Time stands still, I falter, a walk to the beach, stare at the water
the horizon is before me, scattered over a million miles.
An old couple passes, the women looks at me I smile
The sun rises in the east, west Is where it sets,
sometimes I go through a whole night, doing what I forget.


Catholic boys, aren't allowed any toys, not until heaven.
I remember the number of sins that are deadly, isn't it seven?
I call my shrink to tell him how I feel down deep inside
He tells me the best thing to do is probably run and hide
The moon is high, into the deep dark corners of the night I go
I have a friend we talk a lot, I tell him everything, someone's got to know
The sun rises in the east, west is where it sets
sometimes I go through a whole day, going where I forget


Sinister shadows glide along behind, distant laughter
I think I hear, but I'm sure it's just my mind
a long time of ago, I believed in Santa Claus and fairies
I had a bright red fire truck, little plastic men it carried,
to imaginary emergencies, to rescue the people on the top floor
I went to bed at night, I was Robin Hood, I took from the rich
and gave to the poor
The sun rises in the east, west is where it sets.
who the hell I am, sometimes I forget.
