Visions of Johanna

Ain't it just like the night to play
Tricks when you're trying to be so quiet?
We sit here stranded
Though we're all doing our best to deny it
And Louise holds a handful of rain, tempting you to defy it Lights flicker from the opposite loft
In this room the heat pipes just cough
The country music station plays soft
But there's nothing, really nothing to turn off
Just Louise and her lover so entwined
And these visions of Johanna that conquer my mind

In the empty lot where the ladies play
Blindman's bluff with the key chain
And the all-night girls
They whisper of escapades out on the "D" train
We can hear the night watchman click his flashlight Ask himself if it's him or them that's insane
Louise, she's all right, she's just near
She's delicate and seems like the mirror
But she just makes it all too concise and too clear That Johanna's not here
The ghost of 'lectricity howls in the bones of her face Where these visions of Johanna have now taken my place

Now, little boy lost, he takes himself so seriously He brags of his misery, he likes to live dangerously And when bringing her name up
He speaks of a farewell kiss to me
He's sure got a lotta gall
To be so useless and all
Muttering small talk at the wall while I'm in the hall Oh, how can I explain?
It's so hard to get on
And these visions of Johanna, they kept me up past the dawn

Inside the museums, Infinity goes up on trial
Voices echo, "This is what salvation must be like after a while" But Mona Lisa musta had the highway blues
You can tell by the way she smiles
See the primitive wallflower freeze
When the jelly-faced women all sneeze
Hear the one with the mustache say, "Jeez, I can't find my knees" Oh, jewels and binoculars hang from the head of the mule But these visions of Johanna, they make it all seem so cruel

The peddler now speaks
To the countess who's pretending to care for him Sayin', "Name me someone that's not a parasite
And I'll go out and say a prayer for him"
But like Louise always says
"You can't look at much, can you, man?"
As she, herself, prepares for him
And Madonna, she still has not showed
We see this empty cage now corrode
Where her cape of the stage once had flowed
The fiddler, he now steps to the road
He writes everything's been returned which was owed On the back of the fish truck that loads
While my conscience explodes
The harmonicas play the skeleton keys and the rain And these visions of Johanna are now all that remain

I like to spend some time in Mozambique
The sunny sky is aqua blue
And all the couples dancing cheek to cheek
It’s very nice to stay a week or two
And maybe fall in love, just me and you

There’s lot of pretty girls in Mozambique
And plenty time for good romance
And everybody likes to stop and speak
To give the special one you seek a chance
Or maybe say hello with just a glance

Lying next to her by the ocean
Reaching out and touching her hand
Whispering your secret emotion
Magic in a magical land

And when it’s time for leaving Mozambique
To say goodbye to sand and sea
You turn around to take a final peek
And you see why it’s so unique to be
Among the lovely people living free
Upon the beach of sunny Mozambique

I see the signs of a lifetime, you 'til I die
And I'm swiftly out, Irish goodbye

What if it's not meant for me?
What if it's not meant for me?

I'd like to get to know you
I'd like to take you out
We'd go to The Hail Mary
And afterwards make out
Instead, I'm typing you a message
That I know I'll never send
Rewriting old excuses
Delete the kisses at the end
When I see you, the whole world reduces
To just that room
And then I remember and I'm shy
That gossip's eye will look too soon
And then I'm trapped, overthinking
And yeah, probably self-doubt
You tell me to get over it
And to take you out
But I can't, I'm too scared
And here's the night bus, I have to go
And the doors are closing, and you were waving
And I like you, and I'll never let it show
And you won't wait, and maybe I won't mind
I work better on my own
And now I'm home, a little bit drunk
And I ask myself

What if it's not meant for me?
What if it's not meant for me?

A few days pass since I last saw you
And you've taken over my mind
I'm retelling jokes you made that made me laugh
Pretending that they're mine
I wanna tell the whole world about you
I think that that's a sign
I'm losing self-control and it's you
It really is, one thousand times
I look at your picture and I smile
How awful's that? I'm like a teenage girl
I might as well write all over my notebook
That you "rock my world"
But you do, you really do
You've turned me upside down
And that's okay, I'll let it happen
'Cause I like having you around
I'm electric, a romantic cliché
Yeah, they really are all true
When we catch eyes at that stupid party
I know exactly what to do
I'll take your hand, and we will leave
French exits from me and you
And now I'm home, a little bit drunk
Some things don't change
And I know now

Me and you were meant to be
In love
Me and you were meant to be
In love
Me and you

I see the signs of a lifetime, you 'til I die

  HeMateMe: Luke, have you ever been with a lumberjack?
Premium Chessgames Member
  perfidious: <HMM>, there is a poster elsewhere who is into lumberjacks.....
May-24-22  Luke Warm: Yesterday, harry mentioned spreadsheets.
A spreadsheet is nothing more than an electronic document that arranges data on a grid in rows and columns for calculating.

It’s nothing to be intimidated by.

May-24-22  Luke Warm: <Just give it a shot and don’t overthink it>

I really, really don’t want to ask her out for fear of rejection so I’m going to say no.

May-24-22  Luke Warm: It’s easier for British people, the world loves your accent.

See Jn 16:7, 13

R. Alleluia, alleluia.
I will send to you the Spirit of truth, says the Lord; he will guide you to all truth.
R. Alleluia, alleluia.
Jn 16:5-11

Jesus said to his disciples:
“Now I am going to the one who sent me,
and not one of you asks me, ‘Where are you going?’ But because I told you this, grief has filled your hearts. But I tell you the truth, it is better for you that I go. For if I do not go, the Advocate will not come to you. But if I go, I will send him to you.
And when he comes he will convict the world
in regard to sin and righteousness and condemnation: sin, because they do not believe in me;
righteousness, because I am going to the Father
and you will no longer see me;
condemnation, because the ruler of this world has been condemned.”

You mean, like, spooning?

  PawnSac: Greetings fellow kibitzers. Who manages the chess maxim grab list?

While a message is posting a chess maxim appears.. you know.. "think long, think wrong" etc. I was at..

Vasiukov vs Kholmov, 1964

..and while commenting, I thought of a cool maxim:

< "tempo gain wins games" > or possibly better

< "tempo gains win games" >

The 2nd version sounds a little better. Hmmmm. anyway.. I don't recall ever seeing that idea in print, but it's certainly valid.

  fredthebear: <You mean, like, spooning?>

What else is there to do w/a lumberjack?

Take Harry's advice and walk up to the fellow and say: I'D LIKE TO GET TO KNOW YOU

Premium Chessgames Member
  fredthebear: Hey <PawnSac>,

How about "tempo gain seizes the initiative"? Take Harry's advice as stated above.

Preparation, pattern recognition, and practice wins games. So do IPhones, but we're trying to be on the up-and-up here.

  HeMateMe: The Paul Bunyon statue used in the film <Fargo>, where a man hires inept killers to knock off his wife.


near the end of the film the murderous guy who fed Steve Buscemi into a woodchipper machine takes a long look at the gleaming smile and bright eyes of the man holding an axe, as the police car he's in drives past it on the highway. kindred spirits? I believe that was the message, from the Coen brothers.

Premium Chessgames Member
  fredthebear: We go on summer fishing trips to Minnesota. I've met that Paul Bunyon statue. He doesn't say much, but that's the way I like it.
Premium Chessgames Member
  fredthebear: They play good chess up there in Minnesota too. Some of the Chicago fellas will come over from time to time.

Don't expect to beat the locals at Catfish Derby Days in Franklin, MN:

Of course, most people fish Minnesota for the Walleye, Muskie, Pike, etc.
