~Hold That Pose~

~the night shares caresses with different people~than are seen in the light of day~even the names are different~as diverse & separate as the sun & moon~one is a masque~the other a face~& which is which~no one knows~when all else stops~hold that pose~

~the song~

Baby birthday party -
pretty pink balloons
Blue eyed girl growin up too soon
Pony tail bouncin’,
brand new birthday clothes
Daddy takes a picture - Hold that pose

Got your cap and gown,
a blush that s real
Stayed out all night learnin how to feel
Got your highschool lover
takin’ all your clothes
You're pretty as a picture -
Hold that pose, hold that pose
Hold that pose, b-baby, hold that pose

College dorm - little white lies
She feels pretty good between the lies
Girl knows she reaps the seed she sows
and God takes a picture - Hold that pose

Time is money, baby money’s time
You lay down easy,
the pretty white lines
You’re workin on the corner
where the night wind blows
Hold that pose, hold that pose
Hold that pose, b-baby hold that pose

Night man workin’ in the county morgue
He pulls the drawer
with the freezer board
He knows who you are,
reads the tag on your toe

Night man takes a picture -
Hold that pose


Pretty white dress, frozen baby blue eyes
Body holds a mirror when the spirit dies
People gone cryin baby, row by row
Preacher takes a picture -
Hold that pose, hold that pose
Hold that pose b-baby, hold that pose
The night wind blows
and it blows damned cold
Hold that pose b-baby

This is one of the few songs I enjoyed in the studio more than we played it live. Had a great engineer.

Singer to singer, I appreciate that. I may not be as good as I once was but I'm as good once as I ever was. Who said that?
