you may say I'm a dreamer….

If It’s Not Too Late, Make it a Cheeseburger

I’ve been watching a ton of New Orleans Jazz Fest on AXS TV this weekend.

Fully expecting for strands of zydeco, funk and blues to slip into my sub-conscious.

So far, the only song that lodged in my brain is Lyle Lovett’s “Here I am”

If you haven’t ever heard that song, definitely take a look at the linked video.

I think this stuck in my head more than any other tune I heard, because L.L.

is such a wordsmith.  Check out the full lyrics.

I was not at Jazz Fest in reality or in sleep.  It was just an annoying little dream about

not being able to connect.  Not being able to say what I mean, in the right way,

materialized as mobile cell service not cooperating well.

Who was I was calling?

“Can you hear me now?”, “Do we have access? “, “Where are you?”,

“Can you hear me now?”, 

“Look I understand too little to late

I realize there are things you say and do

You can never take back

But what would be if you didn’t even try?

You have to try

So after a lot of thought

I’d like to reconsider

Please if it’s not to late….

Make it a cheeseburger.”

~ Lyle Lovett

    • Either burger or steak… depends on the mood. Just the word ‘cheeseburger’ is kind of funny and Lyle Lovett explained at jazz fest, he just couldn’t think of a rhyme for shrimp po boy…. the sandwich of choice in NOLA.
