Words and music by Richie Reinholdt

Busy lives happy hands
Current styles making plans
Washing clothes and wearing skin
Breathing out and breathing in

Happiness waits for no one
Comes and goes takes its time
Somewhere between joy and sorrow
Satisfaction draws a line

Making friends paying rent
Dinner dates money spent
Eagles fly spirits soar
Can we just have a little more

Socrates and his mom
TV dinners on the lawn
Rituals in paradise
It’s such a chore being nice

Oh, you can’t hold a memory
Without reflective history
The remainder of a smile
Only lingers for a while
