the Heinrich Maneuver


How are things on the west coast?

I hear you’re moving real fine, you wear those shoes like a dove, now strut those shoes and we’ll go roaming in the night…

Well, how are things on the west coast?

You keep it moving to your Soul’s delight. Now I’ve tried the brakes, I’ve tried but you know it’s a lonely ride.

How are things on the west coast?
Oh, I’d move heaven behind those eyes.

Today my heart swings…

But I don’t want to take your heart, and I don’t want a piece of mystery; no, I don’t want to read your thoughts anymore…  ’cause today my heart swings.

How are things on the west coast?

Hear you’re moving real fine tonight.You wear those shoes side to side, strut those shoes and we’ll go roaming in the night. Well, how are things on the west coast? Yeah but you’re an actress and I don’t identify…

Today my heart swings…

But I don’t want to play the part and I don’t want a taste of victory; no I don’t want to read your thoughts anymore…  ’cause today my heart swings.

Let it come…  ’cause I’ve got a chance for a sweet sane life, I said, I’ve got a dance and you’ll do just fine. Well, I’ve got a plan, look forward in my eyes. Let it come. Well, I’ve got a chance for a sweet sane life, I said, I’ve got a dance, it moves into the night. Well, I’ve got a plan with forward in my eyes…

…but today my heart swings.

In many strange and surprising ways, this song acts as a perfectly appropriate missive to so many whom I know and love and miss dearly. If you are unsure of whether I mean you, I probably do.

You may, if you are so inclined, peer closely at the words…  and see if I have sketched your faint tracery out of the clipped collages of verse-chorus-verse and tremolo reverb.

…because today my heart swings.
