lyrics

It’s the art ... of imitating life.
It’s the life ... of imitating art.
It’s the art ... of imitating life.
It’s the life ... of imitating art.

Infinite ocean, of vast proportions.
Drips notions, of my last reflection.
A bottomless pit, an inkwell.
With a feather to dip, and a story to tell.
As the tip sits on paper, bleeds through and swells.
A thousand words, hit like a picture, between inhales...
And, between exhales.
I caught my breath, but I fell.
Like a coin to flip, with a wish upon it.
We all, plummet, and fall, from the summit.
Slip down Mont Royal, to the Monkland strip.
Where the sunsets, on Decarie traffic.
Silent panic, quiet riot, riding public transit.
City static, bad habits, giving head trips.
Music is my life, my life, is my music (x3).
Jazz, flows, in the veins of the artist.

It’s the art ... of imitating life.
It’s the life ... of imitating art.
It’s the art ... of imitating life.
It’s the life ... of imitating art.

Life can be, so cinematic
Just like a movie seen through the eyes of a poet.
On film the reel spins, and the image is lite.
The soundtrack mimics, the projection of the flick.
Violinist plays, the tragic music.
As a thousand frames, flash by in a minute.
The heart, beat, skips.
To the hi-hats, snares and kicks.
Spoken lips, sing, in a crowded closet.
Ink drips forever, just like a faucet.
My existence, summed up, in pages of lyrics.
A sentence, blurred, the lines that define it.
Rhythm and poetry, create a masterpiece, with this artistry.
But clearly, all of my portraits and stories,
Are becoming more like me.
Music is my life, my life is my music (x3).
Jazz, flows in the veins of the artist.

It’s the art ... of imitating life.
It’s the life ... of imitating art.
It’s the art ... of imitating life.
It’s the life ... of imitating art.
It’s the art ... of imitating life.
It’s the life ... of imitating art.
It’s the art ... of imitating life.
It’s the life ... of imitating art.
