Dream of:22 April 1988 "Distant Skies"
I had been sitting around and had written my first song, which I sang over and over to myself. I sang the first part, which went,
"I haven't seen the sunshine
Since you've been on my mind.
The distant skies are blue,
The clouds a grayish hue."
I played with the song over and over. I felt very good about having written the song, as if I had finally found something which I felt good about doing, as if I had found my métier. I talked about it to a girl who was with me. Finally some fellow walked up and we talked about the song. I then remembered that I had written the song down in a notebook which I lhad left at his house. He spoke about what would happen if he stole the song and had it published. I said, "Well it depends on how much you got out of it. I know if it was over $750 it would be a felony."
He asked, "Well, what if I got ten million?"
I answered, "Well that would be up to ten years. Then it would be a second degree felony."
Then I realized it would actually be a first degree felony and I said, "You could get up to life."
He asked, "What if I got five million dollars for it? Would you give me everything over the five million?"
I answered, "Sure."
I would gladly sell it for five million dollars. He then said, "OK."
He walked off and I hollered to him, "I haven't even finished it yet."
He answered, "Fix it. In the meantime I'll work on this end of it."
