Sputnik (8K71PS) by Terry Scott Taylor ©2017 Shape Of Air Music, BMI L-O-V-E in blue Across four fingers is tattooed, Dad’s thick index pointing toward the stars His sons took flight With all the dreamers on that night We landed on the moon, and then on Mars 8K71PS Is etched in metal flesh, Winking at four bodies lying on the lawn Here’s a distant father who Can’t say “I love you” And his bride, who tried to right what he got wrong He was young and handsome Street wise and tough, Provided food and shelter But that wasn’t enough Still I believe to this day That what he couldn’t say That tattoo in blue said to us And I won’t forget the night Of the world’a first satellite And a young boy who dreamed that he could fly, And the blanket on the lawn, And a family now gone In the blink of the red eye in the sky The ship and it’s crew Are running low on fuel Caught in Earth’s gravitational force We’re on trajectory; upward mobility The captain fights to keep our ship on course Our bodies on the grass Form impressions that will last, Something like an X marks the spot Plans for a shelter there From the rockets reddish glare And the bombs that are certain to drop Behind the concrete walls, the locks, and the bars Dad will point to the ceiling, We’ll remember the stars It’s the price for second place The losers in the race Must get use to this new world of ours And I won’t forget the night Of the world’s first satellite And a young boy who dreamed that he could fly, Or the blanket on the lawn And a family now gone In the blink of the red eye in the sky In the blink of the red eye in the sky

I’ve Been Working Words and music by Terry Scott Taylor ©2017 Shape of Air Music, BMI I’ve been working on being so much kinder Like you baby, baby like you And I’ve been working on being more forgiving Like you baby, baby like you And I’ve been working on being more light-hearted Like you baby, baby like you And I’ve been working on working harder Like you baby, baby like you Trapped in my “mull it over” lair Slumped in my procrastinator chair Thinking about a book I’ll probably never write Not seeing even as I sit and stare I’ve been working on having more faith Like you baby, baby like you And I’ve been working on enjoying the simple things Like you baby, baby like you I say too many words for my own good Go overboard to be understood Regret most everything, even things I don’t regret Can’t drive a car without a peek under the hood I’ve been working on being slow to anger Like you baby, baby like you And I’ve been working on being long-suffering Like you baby, baby like you Can’t see the forest for the trees Things aren’t always as deep as I perceive But I’m diggin’ a hole and I won’t stop until I go Upside down where they’re speakin’ in Chinese Yeah…… Got my theories about serving God and loving Man Got me a map and I’ve got me a little plan I’ll start by pretending to love someone I can’t Maybe as time goes on I’ll find I can I’ve been working on being more light hearted Like you baby, baby like you Like you baby, baby like you
