Babelfishing Poetry: "Temporal Crawling, All!"

Hello! Would you like to see some more Babelfishing Poetry, where I take song lyrics, run them through an on-line translator such as (but not necessarily) Babelfish, modify the punctuation a bit, and wind up with a quirky kind of poem?  You would? Well golly gee, you're in luck, because here comes this week's installment!

I loved this song when it came on the radio in 1979.  I had just moved to San Francisco and was starting off on my own for the first time in my life, not knowing anyone in town, no job, and only a temporary place to stay.  This song was a gentle oasis for me in the midst of the chaos at that time.  So, without further ado, here's Poco's "Crazy Love" (watch video here).  Enjoy. 

Temporal Crawling, All!

Heaven, we now request etc.
Just wait;
crime under our constant

Thus, natural
healing heartbreak.
It's our last name --
us, Tomomichi, us --
under eye.

Temporal crawling, all!
We love a, a,
a pass,
times throughout parking areas.
A love ...

Empty root.
Draft-free cases.
its underside.
