about

In my late 20s I worked as a recreation therapist and guitar teacher at a state mental hospital

lyrics

Angel leans on blades of grass
Roses in one hand in a glass
We walk the halls where the cuckoo flies
West into our dreams
On magic moonbeams
God bless out loved ones, each and every one

It's a pall mall for a freeman's song
On the borderline where we sing along
Escape clause to paradise
Hanging on with a smile
Another year in exile
And God bless our loved ones, each and every one

(REFRAIN)
Sooner or later they'll give up on us
We'll walk where we want or take the bus

From the streetlight be back before dawn
Before the boys break your back, please be gone
Paradise is free, ground yourself like a tree
Please be waiting there for me
And God bless our loved ones, each and every one

You gave me just what I needed
You arrived just in time
To open my eyes when I was so blind
We'll leave this poverty behind
And God bless our loved ones, each and every one

REFRAIN

From Brightwood to Boston, San Diego to Tennessee
Say a prayer if you please, say a prayer for me
I'll fly to you across the sea
And God bless our loved ones, each and every one

And I'm dizzy with changes, tired of rearranging
Little brother Alvin's face, his memory has been erased
They steal his olives and cheese
He'll bite the sheets but not on his knees

REFRAIN
