TRADE PLACESWORDS & MUSIC: Earl P. Reinhalter
I. would you like to trade places? would you let me be you? wish that I could be happy as a 9-to-5 working man who could be happy just getting from morning to night without getting restless, without much insight. II. if only I could be happy with a woman who was plain, I'd have married long ago and been inclined to so remain. but as I look for a woman, a lover or wife, I have that sick feeling I'll be lonely for life. III. and now I'm starving and sinking in debt. my music has taken my very last cent. and so my talent brings no fortune or fame. it was born of pain and only returns more of the same. IV. if I could trade my freedom for a career plan, if I could forget how "creative" I am, if I could live without this internal combat: it would add years to my life... if you could still call it that.
