Den här låten gjordes och spelades in någon månad efter incidenten med hårddisken.

D var skild sen ett år tillbaka. Vi var mjuka och empatiska. Han hade det nog tufft.

Efter en clownturné uppe i Norrland dök han upp med ung söt kvinna, S. Nykära är det inte alls synd om så vi slutade vara mjuka och empatiska.

Sedan skulle S fylla år.

Det var inga stora siffror, men D ville ge henne sång.

Ralph hade just initierat ordboksrutinen. Dagens ord var perambulate. Det betyder ungefär "gå omkring planlöst, utan mål".

Den glosan gav hela låten, både texten och hur den skulle framföras. Inte minst D:s geniala orgel andas perambulate.

Sedan blev D vankelmodig och vågade inte spela låten för S på födelsedagen. Hon fick höra den senare.
Dörrknirret som hörs på inspelningen är Ralphs.


When I think of how things could be
If all my wishes would come true
If life was green and tasty too
To think of it just makes me shake
I wake and create till my slumber all,
Obstacles flowing under and
Nothing made would be for me
Cause everything would be for you

If you would let you mean to me
What I want me to mean to you
Youd make my meaning ever gleam
Cause you know you were meant for me
If you would let you mean to me
what I want me to mean to you
Youd make my meaning ever gleam
Cause you know we were meant to be.

But if you would be mean to me
And try to wake my jealousy
You know that it would not mean a thing
Cause on me you can always lean
Even if you’ve been obsene
Eaten my last green jelly bean
Cause, we are only human.

And birds would sit and stare in awe
At the pigeon people pair they saw
And we would wear matched colors proud
With you latched on to me by soul
We would live a dream awake
Not leaving tracks or trails to show
That we had, even been there

Floating on our backs
Crystal water blue
You could be my sea
I was made for you
Sand and grass, pass me
See you move me to levels
To platforms…immeasurable
We could have a ball.
