Sideways                 Music & Lyrics by Jordan Sweeney (November 2007)

 

I’m here with you our feet are crossed.

My brain is on, my thoughts are wild.

Your hair is in my view as I lay here with you sideways.

 

I’m thinking of my days back home when mom would sing her “we belong.”

My thoughts are all but new as I lay here with you sideways.

 

When I’m with you I understand me.

You’re lovely can’t you see?

 

Remembering my happy days, like Sydney’s birth, my wedding day.

I’ll stay afloat with you, if you float with me too.

 

When I’m with you I understand me.

You’re lovely can’t you see?

 

My mind’s awake, the water’s cold, but I will keep on diving.

On and on I’m staring at these words my mind keeps writing and writing. My mind’s a book, and out it comes in song.

I’m so alive when I’m with you and we’re together on our path arriving.

 

When I’m with you I understand me.

You’re lovely can’t you see?

 

I’m thinking of my days back home when mom would sing her “we belong.”

My thoughts are all but new as I lay here with you sideways.
