Hurricane Addison Austin, Texas

I've got blue eyes,
and I was born in June
I drum out beats I hear inside my head
and whistle made up tunes

Track Name: None the Wiser
the Wise only know that Wisdom is not knowing anything
Track Name: Words like "Love"
"Oh my," she sighed, with a tear in her eye. "How I envy you for having found your true love."

I replied, "I wouldn't worry if I were you, For I'd now deny ever having found my true love."

With a look of surprise, she cried, "Why not?! Have you forgotten how you felt When she told you she loved you too?"

I smiled and said, "'Twas all in my head, And when the dog caught the car he chased, he had no clue what to do.

" 'Cus you don't love a song for pleasing your ear When you've whistled the melody most of a year; it's just what you're craving to hear."

Looking annoyed, she scowled, "Silly boy, You had me convinced that the cosmos confirmed your love."

I apologized, "I've opened my eyes, 'Cus for a while I blindly assumed I saw signs from above.

"But you can't love the leaves for changing their hue Since they would've, regardless of whether you knew to watch for the cascade of red and gold grace; No, the beauty is for its own sake."

Still on the fence about my newfound sense, she said,

"With the way she inspires you, how can you deny your true love?"

On my soapbox I got to share some old thoughts, "Before it brought life, Noah had to first uncage the dove.

"And you don't love the sunset for letting you paint it, 'Cus if you'd been late, it wouldn't have waited, And would've still bathed the beach in its crimson blush whether or not you were there with your brush. No, for your eyes and canvas to sip the sky's wine, You have to be there on time."

With contention resigned, she said "Alright, You've disproven a love that you once told me was true, And now I wonder, should I doubt the true love that I've found?"

I smiled, "Now that all depends on what True Love means to you;

"For a word can't define a feeling inside, Though often we use "I love you" to try; But when we set it free, it forgets what we mean, And the message we look for is all that we see. "

"For a word is nothing but an empty shell, That we fill with the meaning that we wish to tell.

"As an archer might aim as straight as can be, But the arrow can miss if it's caught in a breeze;

"And the winds of two cyclones don't swirl the same, That's why every hurricane has its own name. So when we sound out the turbulence that only we hear, It adds to the chaos in another's ear;

"'Cus our voices and tongues are primitive tools, Too blunt to relate why we're acting like fools,

"And the hoots of a monkey and chirps of a bird Hold just as much meaning as our silly words.

"So I've quit trusting language to translate the truth, And I transmit my feelings with tunes."
