Deeper Than the Shade 

Deeper Than the Shade

Let's talk about my lamp

The shade is pleated muslin.

Forget what I said...I don't want to discuss what isn't puzzlin'

I will peek around the corner to see what's truly comin'

Let's speak about my bird

His wings are green with yellow streaks

He speaks and he speaks

Quite a coffee table conversation piece!

The course I need is deeper than the shade

The moon was your own

A few feelings sewn,

and now they have flown.

Let's talk about the lamp.
