Lyrics
Which and When
©Jeffrey C. Ashbaker 9-2013

If I had another story, I could sing it just as well
A dark symbolic allegory, of heaven or of hell
So when you listen in the moment, you might think that it was true
And if you claim it, you might own it, as the words come back to you

---Chorus---
So say hello or say goodbye
I guess the question's which and when
Do I keep the old fire burning
For a stranger or a friend
Oh Which and When
Oh Which and When
-----------------
I've watched the sunrise blazing, raising my spirit with the light
And I've felt the days end sunset, enslave me to the night
So if you need a revelation, how the hell can I explain
Even after transformation, dead and alive are not the same
--Repeat Chorus--
I come to town essential for the custom, expecting to be fed
I show respect among the living, by living on the edge
So just invite me to the party, if I can make it, I might show
And if you need a better reason, I guess the tide must ebb to flow
--Repeat Chorus--
-End-
