A taste of nostalgia

There’s nothing like thinking back
on February nights
when we rocked the whole world away.
There’s nothing like thinking back
on February nights,
but they’re forever gone away.

There’s nothing like the sweet smell
of dust and dying dreams,
when we believed we were the best.
There’s nothing like memories
of dusty dreams now dead
to make this lonely soul confess.

There’s nothing like nostalgia
to cause the heart to burn
and ache and long for days of old.
There’s nothing like nostalgia
to cause the mind to learn:
daydreams simply wear on the soul.

Dreaming of a dreary past
will cause the soul to hurt.
Can’t nostalgia just go away?

P’s and Q’s

I have this test of p’s and q’s
But all I think about is you
The only thing I wanna do
Is be the p, here for you
And have you as my little q

If p then q, if p may be
If p is q, is q then p?
Do p and q represent me?
If q then p, where does that lead?
In a world of q’s and also p’s

If p is my heart, then q is your soul
If one is pure, then the other is gold
If one is black, then the other is sold
If one is empty, then the other will fold
You can’t see yourself, don’t believe what’s told

My p’s and q’s will fade away
Get this test over with and say
What was I supposed to make
Of these p’s and q’s anyway?
Maybe I’ll know some other day
