Harley and Rose

(the matthew show)
August 22, 2013
written by Joe Camilleri and Nick Smith (for The Black Sorrows)
commissioned as part of Legacy Leadership Academy tuition fundraiser, summer 2013
Harley and Rose were reunited, this time they said it was for real
She'd take him back to where it started, he would melt her heart of steel
Life is a bitter disappointment, she would hear-ear young Harley say
If you find something more important, I will not stand in your way

Like static on the dial, a look comes back in style
Harley and Rose, they just lost it for a while

Harley claimed there was no lover, nothin' blooms this time of year
While Rose was thinkin' of another, she did not see him disappear

Like tumblin' down the aisle, a half forgotten smile
Harley and Rose, they just lost it for a while

You know we all can change direction, ain't
nothin' to it, just relax
He adds one more to his collection, she strikes another useless match (hang D)

Harley was dreamin' of his funeral, as customary, he was late
But just in time to see young Rosie lay her flowers at the gate
