  1. Buffalo Bill’s


    who used to

    ride a watersmooth-silver


    and break onetwothreefourfive pigeonsjustlikethat


    he was a handsome man

    and what i want to know is

    how do you like your blueeyed boy

    Mister Death

  2. i carry your heart with me(i carry it in

    my heart)i am never without it(anywhere

    i go you go,my dear; and whatever is done

    by only me is your doing,my darling)

    i fear

    no fate(for you are my fate,my sweet)i want

    no world(for beautiful you are my world,my true)

    and it’s you are whatever a moon has always meant

    and whatever a sun will always sing is you

    here is the deepest secret nobody knows

    (here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud

    and the sky of the sky of a tree called life;which grows

    higher than the soul can hope or mind can hide)

    and this is the wonder that’s keeping the stars apart

    i carry your heart(i carry it in my heart)
