Pony Ann

from The Leaves by Short Hand



I've always been a stones throw
From what I needed to know
Always rowing a row boat
And never reaching dry land
I've never been any good
At quitting when I should
Or saying what I could about Pony Ann

In the midst of a still night
With a moon like a stop light
With a heart like a car I
Drive as far as I can
I've always been sure of who I was
Known the effect and cause
I've been a man but I could've been Pony Ann

Pony Ann, Pony Ann
In another world that's exactly who I am
Though I always answer to Short Hand
I sometimes hear the name Pony Ann

I could always pull the windows shut
Leave the curtain so just a cut

Of sunlight bounces off the ceiling fan
Or somewhere on a distant train
With my head on the window pane
I could close my eyes
And dream of Pony Ann

I'm just a human being
Got no way of seeing the past
Or the future or what is at hand
But I'm also and artist
So I'm good at faking it
And I'm faking it good for Pony Ann

In the end, a set of sounds collect themselves into different shapes one might call "albums." Some sound like this and some sound like that. ... more
