Here is a song I wrote for my friend Jake who passed away this week. It is set to the chords of John Lennon's Imagine.

Where do you go? Where do you go?
When you're the only one who knows
Something more, something more
Where do you find, Where do you find
Simple peace of mind?
When the questions start to fight
I've seen the world through Jake's eyes, only once or twice
How do you live? Ho do you live?
When the world won't seem to give
Answers to you, answers to you
And how do you choose? how do you choose?
What you want to do
When every field's so cool
I've seen the world through Jake's eyes, only once or twice
But when I did I realized, it's hard to live a life in a Genius's mind
But his perspective and compassion it helped him to nourish our lives
What do you ask? What do you ask?
When the language won't express
Your big ideas, your big ideas
And what do you play? What do you play?
When the pain won't go away
And there are too many gods to pray
I've seen the world through Jake's eyes, only once or twice
But when I did I realized, it's hard to live a life in a Genius's mind
But his perspective and compassion it helped him to nourish our lives
Chord arrangement by John Lennon

Where do you go? Where do you go?

When you're the only one who knows

Something more, something more


Where do you find, Where do you find

Simple peace of mind?

When the questions start to fight


I've seen the world through Jake's eyes, only once or twice


How do you live? Ho do you live?

When the world won't seem to give

Answers to you, answers to you


And how do you choose? how do you choose?

What you want to do

When every field's so cool


I've seen the world through Jake's eyes, only once or twice

But when I did I realized, it's hard to live a life in a Genius's mind

But his perspective and compassion it helped him to nourish our lives


What do you ask? What do you ask?

When the language won't express

Your big ideas, your big ideas


And what do you play? What do you play?

When the pain won't go away

And there are too many gods to pray


I've seen the world through Jake's eyes, only once or twice

But when I did I realized, it's hard to live a life in a Genius's mind

But his perspective and compassion it helped him to nourish our lives
