Two Notes And A Beat (The Lonely Forest)

All I really need are two notes and a beat All I really need are two notes and a beat Oh, last night I dreamt a magnificent thing I held you close I heard you sing Your voice was what I’d always wanted in a woman I know you say he’s good to you and I’m sure he is But darling he’s all you’ll ever know Unless you trust your heart and let yourself grow If your skin was the ocean I’d sprint to your shore I’d wade in your shallows, alleviate my core If you hair was the fir tree all hollow inside With peace I would slumber Gripping this pen Cliff over water Envisioning drums in rhythmic salute Poetry craftwork is tough I won’t bother But pull simple rhymes from the dirt Who’d refute? All I really need are two notes and a beat All I really need are two notes and a beat To sing to you my heart it’s a great place to start D to a G Swift as a bird Muscles remembering artless, absurd And modest attempts at creating a mood With these thin metal strings my affection construe Gripping this pen Cliff over water Envisioning drums Poetry craftwork is tough I won’t bother But pull simple rhymes... All I really need are two notes and a beat All I really need are two notes and a beat To sing to you my heart it’s a great place to start...
