a new year

well you have seen what you know
thru hands that have held my words
but you know in all have never reached
the center of my world
but when i turn around to put my eyes
to the path that leads to here
if you hear me laughing, know it means i
understand, not that i don't care

but i keep getting dizzy
watching words from my mouth turn to words
that i put in your ear turn round in your mind
til they all turn unclear
so i'm here on the floor with my beer while i'm
trying to think
with miles and months between what i
haven't said, what you understand
and what i might sing

well you have seen what you know
thru hands that have held my words
but you know in all have never reached
the center of my world
but when i turn around to put my eyes
to the path that leads to here
if you don't hear anything, know i might not
understand,
not that i don't care
