Close your eyes and open your mind
Never forget that you’re one of a kind
That’s what mama used to tell me
On rainy days, while we watched TV.
I’d ask her why one guy would say a phrase
That put their enemies into a daze.
And she’d tell me to figure it out
Otherwise all the questions I spout
Would cause a storm, like the one outside
And I shouldn’t expect the world to provide.
I’d sit in wonder and sip my hot chocolate
And my consciousness would move off it.
But deep down my mind would be turning
To find the answer for which I’d been yearning.
And my mind would spin ’til I was dizzy
And I’d worked myself all up into a tizzy.
Then I’d pass out for a minute or two
Seduced to sleep by the warmth of the brew
And in my dreams I’d be lucky to find
An answer that was indeed one of a kind.
And from that message I’ve brought this to you
A reminder that if, to yourself, you stay true
The storms outside won’t be quite so scary
And a night by the fire will make you more merry.
