waiting for thelmas laughter

  You wanna take the world
in hand
and fix-it-up
the way you fix your living room

You wanna reach out and crush
life's big and small injustices
in the fire and honey of your hands

You wanna scream
cause your head's too small
for your dreams

and the children
                    running round
                            acting like lil clowns
                                    breaking the furniture down

while I sit through
it all watching you
knowning any time
now your laughter's gonna come

to drown and heal us all
