The Nearness of You - Sarah Vaughn

You will never hear more America in one track then this one. Happy Fourth of July.
the java fires the lava flowing in my brain
hot wet sex-rider screaming stains
black cold heart bleeds lightning and rain
as the dame in tight red takes the names of
simpatico lames. bass notes cut rainbows thru me
trues me like falling ten stories into love
leaves me drunk and gliding on sweet brown
water like Jesus walking on jazz
the one and only Wanda Coleman
Miles, Ella, Duke, Billie, etc. Capital Records. Hollywood, CA.
