original, recorded as a solo project. Inspired by Bob Dylan


i'm sorry the other night for hiding in your hedge
i'm always trying to talk myself off of the edge
i thought that i was Cyrano and could sing you a tune
that could float like a riverboat and send you to the moon

it's just that Juliet's been gone God only knows how long

i'm trying to find a way to you but you don't smoke or drink
at least i guess that's what i'm supposed to think
you must be high on something 'cause all the while
you've been flashing me that Mona Lisa smile

guess you heard my Juliet's been gone God only knows how long

i'm so lonely i've been talking to the wall
but the shadow you cast there is ten feet tall
so i got out a pencil and drew a happy face
and now the eyes follow me all over the place

you see my Juliet's been gone God only knows how long

if i'm missing juliet i guess that makes me romeo
but i've been banished with nothing to show
for all my love and sincerity
'cept this post card from paradise that you sent me

it says i'm going to be gone God only knows how long
