Off Center

Steve Cochrane 1955 (Cape)



I am off center, must reenter
The road to somewhere else.
I don't know why, but I must try
To find where dreams don't melt.

Generic phrases always amazes
Me with "One size fits all".
Mentality which easily
Will cause my goals to stall.

Just be a friend and try to spend
Sometime in solitude
And stay awhile if it's your style
With love that is imbued!
