Little Birdie (the light across the way)
"got a short time for to stay here and a long time to be gone"
remember all the times 
we took it  past  all reason
I loved you  too  two too many switches
the light  

on now
in a dream I go back to 11th street and find more rooms 
than really existed 
and you must figure it out  from the past   but you can not turn it

in reality
someone was attacking me
I screamed out trying to escape
and the  dealer who lived across the hall   ran out  naked   
and saved my life
