In Honor Of Barack Obama

I didn’t vote for him (wrote in Paris Hilton), but I appreciate his accomplishment.  It will be very interesting to see how the next few years turn out. He has so much on his plate, the known, and the unknown – I don’t understand why anyone would want this job.

Anyway, here is a tribute song – A Brand New Morning – by David Baerwald.

I’ve got no sorrow; I’ve got no war
I can’t go through that nightmare anymore
I don’t like guns; I don’t like drugs
Maybe it’s time to be settling down

She’s still sleeping; the dogs are up
The sun is rising shining down on me
A pale blue mist in the backyard
The sun is shining down on me

I don’t know why I take it so hard
We’re all living in a house of cards

It’s a brand new morning; it’s a brand new day
It’s a brand new morning and I’m here to stay

A woman’s asleep in the bedroom
A man is prowling up and down the hall
There’s coffee brewing in the new machine
He’ll be making eggs and all

She’s going to college; she’s gonna get a degree
She knows one thing now; she knows she loves me
We could get married; we could be so happy
The truth would be like we were covering up

It’s a brand new morning; it’s a brand new day
It’s a brand new morning I’m glad to say

PS. I was going to use this song when Prop 8 lost, but… well, that didn’t turn out like I planned.
