Questions and Answers

in the morning when the dream dissolves
and all that you recall
is that it felt so real
if it even was a dream at all
and your lover and companion
still asleep inside her own one
maybe the same the same one
that you just woke up from

are there any answers
yes there are answers
but when you find the answers
all the questions change

there are people who demand
to know the answers to it all
like why they don’t fly off the planet
and why the sky doesn’t fall
they have the right to ask of course
and someone will reply
and for each and every answer
there’s a question standing by

are there any answers
yes there are answers
but when you find the answers
all the questions change

you could question my integrity
and question my desire
like I question your intentions
as you step into the fire
it’s all open to investigation
nothing is secure
we may invest in our predictions
but how can we be sure

I asked you what your name was
and I asked you where you’re from
and you asked you where I lived
and was I with someone
and I asked if you like movies
and would you like to see one now
you said why don’t we go walking
we’ll find a way somehow
and our walking went for miles
and the miles went on for days
with all contradictions
of a million different ways
until we reached our destination
where the distance disappears
and we are still together
after all these years

yes there are answers
but when you find the answers
all the questions change
