Dazzling

from Chocolate Paper Suites

NIGHT LIGHT SUITE: Dazzling

Dazzling
sugar beans and firecrackers
paradise
it's raining pretty peacock feathers
on the patio - you dance so funny, oh
but you don't care a thing
it's simply dazzling

Dazzling
Charlie Parker in the speakers
Now's The Time
stepping right out of your sneakers
in the sulfur mist, sweet as any kiss
how the Bird can sing
and it is dazzling

Dazzling, oh
how the paper lanterns
and the glow on everything
tonight's the matter of the
muse who paints the blues
onto the summer sky of green
it's only everything
and it's only dazzling

Dazzling
in his blue suspenders
whispering low
to a sea of strangers
to an audience
behind the fence
zadda, zadda zing
oh, he is dazzling

Dazzling
the paper lanterns
and the glow on everything
tonight's the matter of the
muse who paints the blues
onto the summer sky of green
it's only everything
and it's only dazzling

Dazzling
firemen line up
hear the sirens call
somebody's acting up
but who's to say
who rues the day?
you blow a smoky ring
that's simply dazzling

Dazzling
the ashes on the tin roof
fireflies,
sweet lemons in the ice cubes
the peacocks fly
take to the sky
and, oh, the flight's the thing
oh, it's so dazzling
