Hemma, lyssnar på Joni Mitchell

Packar upp. Skivan Court and Spark köpte jag i Hangzhou 1994, den är från 1974 tror jag. Då för tiden köpte alla in the know på konstskolan kasserade CD-skivor från USA. Den här var mitt bästa köp.

People's Parties
All the people at this party
They've got a lot of style
Theyve got stamps of many countries
Theyve got passport smiles
Some are friendly
Some are cutting
Some are watching it from the wings
Some are standing in the centre
Giving to get something

Photo beauty gets attention
Then her eye paint's running down
Shes got a rose in her teeth
And a lampshade crown
One minute she's so happy
Then she's crying on someone's knee
Saying laughing and crying
You know it's the same release

I told you when I met you
I was crazy
Cry for us all beauty
Cry for Eddie in the corner
Thinking he's nobody
And Jack behind his joker
And stone-cold Grace behind her fan
And me in my frightened silence
Thinking I don't understand

I feel like I'm sleeping
Can you wake me
You seem to have a broader sensibility
I'm just living on nerves and feelings
With a weak and a lazy mind
And coming to peoples parties
Fumbling deaf dumb and blind

I wish I had more sense ot humor
Keeping the sadness at bay
Throwing the lightness on these things
Laughing it all away
Laughing it all away
Laughing it all away

Tack! Det känns lite konstigt att vara hemma, men också skönt.

När jag reste långt, jag har inte rest på ett tag, så kändes det alltid som att jag visserligen var hemma men själen befann sig fortfarande över Sibirien någonstans.
