Millennium Song

Millennium Song, a poem-turned-song I wrote on New Year's Eve, 1999...

Eve of the millennium 
And what do I feel 
Despair and tribulation 
Deep sadness and fear 

A night of introspection 
Not a thread of what's real 
As the TV drones on 
With reports of world cheer 

Each countdown a letdown 
Each hour more pain 
As I lay on the couch 
Coffee cup in my hand 

Singing my own song 
A silent refrain 
It takes more than millennium 
To make a grain of sand 

(More than a grain of sand 
More than a grain of sand)
