This Song is for my Mother

This song is for my mother
Let her hear me cry
I couldn’t bring myself to write it
‘Til this darkened day arrived
A song about old promises 
Made so long ago
Created and cremated
Ashes of the words I spoke

Long separated by the miles
Distanced from her golden smiles
Memory of a mother
Shared my dreams and really cared

Long separated by the miles
Distanced from her golden smiles
Mama…
I know I wasn’t there……

For you

Would have placed 
A magic carpet 
‘neath your weak and shaky legs

Would have raised
A strong west wind
Let you breathe with ease again

Would have bribed 
God’s venal angels
Come and soothe your endless pain

Would have vanquished
All the demons
And bring peace to you again

Be the child
I never knew
In a land
We won’t grow old

Be the light
I always loved
Warmed my dark 
And lonely soul

Be the girl
Playing games
In a world 
The sun won’t set

Be the laughter
Calms my heart
I never will forget
I won’t forget, won’t forget

This song is for my mother
Let her hear me cry
Couldn’t bring myself to write it
‘Til this darkened day arrived
Song about old promises 
Made so long ago
Created….cremated
Ashes of the words I spoke

I broke my promises, oh mama
Now you’ve gone away 
I’m broken
Drowning in the pain each day

I’m  drowning…drowning...drowning…drowning

This song is for my mother
Let her hear me…….

HARD HAT HEROES

There's a breed of Aussie hero who has served this nation well 
and they don a yellow uniform to face the fires of hell. 
When day temperatures are soaring and the high winds blow a gust, 
and our bushland is ignited it's in them we place our trust.   
Yes, you're all somebody's daughter and you're all somebody's son; 
you are mothers and you’re fathers.  Hard hat heroes everyone. 
 
When their mates are in the hot seat and they need a helping hand, 
they will volunteer their services from stations 'cross this land. 
Whether country towns or cities or a bush fire brigade; 
they will gladly throw their hats in and will offer their mates aide. 
Yes, you're all somebody's daughter and you're all somebody's son; 
you are mothers and you’re fathers.  Hard hat heroes everyone. 
 
Do you owe your home or property, your very lives perhaps,     
to the selfless, sincere efforts of these bold fire-fighting chaps?  
Or still sadly you lost everything, but proudly can attest 
to their fierce determination as each brave soul did their best.    
Yes, you're all somebody's daughter and you're all somebody's son; 
you are mothers and you’re fathers.  Hard hat heroes everyone. 
 
So I ask you all to join me as we stand and raise a glass 
to the courage and the spirit of this fire fighting, class; 
and I'm sure you'd love to join me as this message we impart,  
"You're such true blue hard hat heroes and we thank you from the heart." 
Yes, you're all somebody's daughter and you're all somebody's son; 
you are mothers and you’re fathers.  Hard hat heroes everyone.

MY WEAKNESS IS WORDS AND WORLDS

Passion, it pours from my pen,
I forget who I am every now and then.
My alternate persona is double trouble.
A freaky girl living outside her bubble.
Flirty with words like throwing daggers,
An angel face with sexual swaggers,
A pop star princess with a hip hop beat,
Living wild with a one, two, three-repeat.

My weakness is for these rhymes,
Imprisoned by my words I'm doing times.
Battling with babblings in my head,
Wanting to be this or that persona instead.
I want to make the men's hearts go weak,
Instead of just a mama, I want to be a freak.

I've gone crazy with crayola crayons,
I've colored my world with artistic hands.
Living a thousand lives in moments of time.
I am a hostage to ballads of rhythm and rhyme.
Not a master, but a mistress of many disguise,
I am lost in a landslide of lyrical lies.
Obsession, I don't know my own mind any more.
A thousand keys to my heart, but there is only one door.


My weakness is for these rhymes,
Imprisoned by my words I'm doing times.
Battling with babblings in my head,
Wanting to be this or that persona instead.
I want to make the men's hearts go weak,
Instead of just a mama, I want to be a freak.

I'm weak and I wonder what my kryptonite can be,
When I'm strong enough to write, but too crazy to be free.

Music Take Me Back

When I'm blue and need something to make me smile
I can turn on my forty fives and listen for a while
Jimmy Gilmer sang about a Sugar Shack
Holding hands, walking down that railroad track
Then I let the music take me back.

Take me back to a time when love was new
Take me back to a time when skies were blue
When we could catch that falling star
Make love in the back seat of my car
Music, oh sweet music, take me back

Doo-wop memories touched my soul
Mixed with the early days of rock and roll
I close my eyes and through the haze
I see sunshine and better days
Music take me back to those times again.

There was Bandstand on TV in black and white
Radio on 'til you fell asleep at night
There were dances at the school
And swimming in the community pool
Music take me back, let me remember when.

Did we believe those days would forever last
Were things so much better in the past
I dream of days when a movie
Meant kissing in the balcony
Music take me back, let my heart roam.

It seems like a thousand years ago
We found true love and watched it grow
I know this is where my heart belongs
When I listen to those songs
Music take me back, please take me home.

Changes

Lady, Don't say I didn't try to warn ya
But I'm taking this thumb all the way to California
I'm just gonna go
Even though I love you so
Got a ramblin' urge that just won't let me rest

Took my guitar and the clothes that's on my back
Got my life planned out and everything's on track
So I ask you please don't cry
Now it's time to say goodbye
I'll think of you when I settle down out west

Today's the day that I'm gonna shift my load
Leave the past behind and hit the open road
But no matter what I do 
I'll still dream of you
I've got you in my heart and there you're gonna stay

If it's changes for the better I don't know
I stilll feel that it's time for me to go
Yes, we had some happy years
I don't want to see your tears
If changes come again, then I'll be back some day.

Unanswered Poems

Don’t send me more 
Of your tragic poems
My dear 
Covered in blood
Of your monthly flood
Of tears

Don’t send me more 
Of your angry poems
My dear
Carved with the knife
Of your molten spite
And fears

I’m just a peddler 
With a cart
Bringing discount words
To hearts
Broken hearts across the land
Woman left without her man
Broken hearts throughout the world
Anguished boy and crying girl

Your poetry’s too heavy, dear
For me to read, for me to bear
Your poetry’s too heavy, dear
For me to get from here to there

Don’t send me more
Of your bitter poems
My sweet
Forged in the fire
Of your endless ire
And grief

Don’t send me more 
Of your hopeless poems
My sweet
Ripped from the womb
Of the lonely room
You keep

I’m just a peddler 
With a cart
Bringing discount words
To hearts
Broken hearts across the land
Woman left without her man
Broken hearts throughout the world
Anguished boy and crying girl

Your poetry’s too heavy, dear
For me to read, for me to bear
Your poetry’s too heavy, dear
For me to get from here to there

(You see that shadow on the road
Trudging ‘neath its heavy load
A heart weighed down by sands of time
And your poems only make him cry
And he won’t add them to the pile
So he can walk another mile)

(And he won’t add them
To the pile
So he can walk 
Another mile)

Too heavy, dear 
Too heavy, dear
For me to read 
For me to bear

(They make him sad
Make him cry
Beat him down
Deep inside)

Too heavy, dear
Too heavy, dear
For me to read
For me to bear

They make me sad
Make me cry
Feel as though 
I want to die

(And he won’t add them
To the pile
So he can walk 
Another mile)

Too heavy, dear
Too heavy, dear
For me to read
For me to bear

(A heart weighed down 
By sands of time
And your poems 
Only make him cry)

Too heavy, dear
Too heavy, dear
For me to read
For me to bear

Never Told You

Tired of talking 
‘bout weather
Other trivial things

Tired of talking 
‘bout food
The price of tangerines

You may outlive
This aging man
Before I go
Please understand

Never told you how 
I love you 
When I held you
In the dark

Never told you how
I love you
I was never
Very smart

I never told you how
I love you
When I kissed your 
Baby face

Never told you how
I love you 
And I pray it’s 
Not too late

I would  tell you, 
“That’s what men do…manly men don’t say,  ‘I love you’”
That was my alibi
But what men do should be corrected
What men do can’t be accepted 
If it makes your woman cry

Tired of talking 
‘bout scandals
Rumors of the day

Tired of talking 
‘bout old mistakes
Who deserves the blame?

The Winter of our lives
Is drawing near
Let’s change it to Spring
From year to year

Now I’m telling you 
I love you
Though the words are coming late

I’m telling you
I love you
And it feels so good to say

I’ll love you in the morning         
Love you through the night
I will love you through the tears
And all the tragedies of life

I’ll stay with you forever
Love you every day
Love you,  love you, love you
It feels so good to say

Love you, love you, love you, baby

Feels so good to say…..

Love

Tropical Obsession

I've got a tropical obsession
I think I'm losing my mind
I want to see my work day done
Go out and have some fun
And leave the city life behind.

I love the roar of the ocean
The smell of tanning lotion
A secluded beach somewhere
There are coconuts in the trees
With a warm and gentle breeze
And a flower in your hair.

I've got a tropical obsession
It's driving me up a wall
I want the palm trees and the shore
Blue skies and so much more
Oh God! I want it all

There's an island in the sea
I can hear it calling me
Saying come on home today
I'll bring my old beach chair
Plant it in the sand somewhere
And that's where I'm going to stay

I've got a tropical obsession
And I just can't set it free
On an island remote
In a little fishing boat
Is where I want to be.

Violet

In London, away in a terrace
Half-hidden with elm trees and grime,
Lived young Violet, in her parents' house,
Left alone for near all of the time,

As her mother had no patience to teach her
And her father was working all day,
Violet read to herself through her childhood
Forgetting her seclusion in play,

Any friends she made as a young woman
Would laugh at her stitches and cloth,
For they knew that Violet was quite useless
And so showed their neat needlework off,

Poor Violet kept trying her best, but
Each time everyone ran her down,
She retreated back into her mind's warmth
Far away from that cold-blooded town,

Then one night, as the raindrops were piercing
Through the rueful, restricting twilight,
Violet threw on her Sunday attire and
Did at once in the darkness delight,

So she ran through the alleys and gardens,
Dancing down the pitch-black London streets,
Her beautiful dress flew about her
As she skipped past the other deceits,

Violet's stories swam round in her memory
As she flew through the night and the stars,
And she bathed thoroughly and with relish
Until Violet was cleansed of her scars,

Now her heart was open and happy,
So she laughed and fluttered her tail,
Carelessly gliding free through the water
And onwards to the ocean did sail.

As the weary sun rose on the next day
Her friends could be seen on the pier,
Dabbing at their dry eyes with their hankies,
Voices straining trying to sound sincere,

"It has hurt us so indescribably,
That because of her poorly-sewn hems,
Violet felt she was inferior to us
And has drowned herself in the Thames."

Violet's parents had not yet noticed
The absence of their only daughter,
And they would understand even less
How she came to be dead underwater,

But Violet was now free to prosper,
To swim and to dance and to glide,
And with angels and mermaids to play with,
She would always in her dreams reside.

WALKING SHOES

I’m tired of you.
Back stabbing me and not keeping it true.
Deceiving and lying
When I caught you, here comes the fake crying
The sad bedroom eyes hiding behind a guilty face
The phony kisses and the warm embrace
What you hide in the dark always come out in the light
Sometimes our secrets we thought we hid is revealed in our own sight
You claimed you loved me 
But it’s more like you hate or envy me
If you really don’t love me just let me be
Everyday I tried, believe me I prayed
But I hope you don’t think you’re here to stay
I even loved you when you did not love me
“So why are you still with me?”
So take your shoes and go
Don’t tie up your laces so slow
Remember I gave you love when nobody else would
I even took away your doubts that every man is no good
“Shush don’t say nothing don’t even talk.”
Just take your shoes and walk

Martyr for the Unorthodox word

If I had over 10,000 dreams You'd be the only thing my mind could see Judgment couldn't be real Succumbing to the fear of this cold life Find a way to break through The self-destruction of wordly delusions Don't tell me I've lived so long in a lovely illusion Break me down until we find a Nirvanic state Then bring me a savior from transgressions An atoning sacrifice Send down to me a messenger for me to submit to Bring me the truth to break through The delusion Bring me the messenger to explain it all And let me leave behind Sorrow's caressing the earth The caliphate stole my heart Without a will to fight But I have the Means to be free I'll try to go with the word I believe But so many stones to be thrown Stakes to burn, limbs to break Faces to hate, scorns to taste Will I have the will to die Despite all of the tears no one will cry Sorrow's caressing the earth The caliphate stole my heart Broke my will Safetefied my soul Martyr for the Unorthodox word Sorrow's caressing the earth The caliphate stole my heart Without a will to fight But I have the Means to be free I'll try to go with the word I believe But so many stones to be thrown Stakes to burn, limbs to break Faces to hate, scorns to taste Will I have the will to die Despite all of the tears no one will cry Sorrow's caressing the earth The caliphate stole my heart Broke my will Safetefied my soul Martyr for the Unorthodox word

Don't Hang Your Dreams on Me

There's no use in hanging on to something that's not yet real
So kiss me, baby, say goodbye; you know the way I feel
I'm not ready to settle down,but I  know you'd like me to try
So don't keep clinging to me, girl, I'll only make you cry
It's true you have a heart of gold
And you'll give it to me, it would never be sold
That might be what I'm looking for
But just for now I need a whole lot more
Baby that's all I have to say
Except maybe I'll be back for you someday
But until that day don't hang your dreams on me
Some people would give their whole life to have what I've got with you
It may not be right but I'm leaving tonight, don't want to make you blue
Don't blame yourself, it's not your fault
You're everything a woman should be
But if I hang around, your world will fall
When the urge to leave starts pulling me.

Mrs. Brown You've Got A Lovely Jewel There!!

Mrs. Brown you've got a lovely jewel there,
Jewels like her are something rare...
She can't  disguise it,
Ruby's red eyes show "blues" in it,

Fred, you wanna add the refrain?
Don't worry about Herman & pals-
They're all hermit crabs now-a-days.

A SUBSTITUTE FOR THIS LONELINESS

Another charming woman is
sharing with me what I used
to share with you without guilt,
even without a sad feeling or thought:
to find a substitute for this loneliness...
for  that deep void you left inside!

The cell phone always rang
at the end of the evening;
and I was so thrilled
to hear you at the other end:
to listen to the sweet words that were
able to turn an uncaring man
into a gentler and kinder one...
and I learned how to care!

Oh,how I long to hear that voice again,
and like a dream that needed litttle dreaming:
you came knocking on my door at dawn,
and I let you in without hesitating...
so earger to touch you like nobody could;
so impatient to invent a magical world!   

Another night is coming to haunt me mercilessly
with the beautiful memories and secrets 
of two close hearts loving endessly;
what other choice do I have...if not look away,
and tell myself that you don't exist in my thoughts...
to find a substitute for this loneliness?

HOME

Home was just a mellow state of mind
A place a rambling man would never find
Home was anywhere the rivers flowed
Spent most of his days on the open road

Couldn't find a reason to settle down
Morning would find him in another town
Standing still was too big a price to pay
He wouldn't have it any other way

He's a dying breed standing in the rain
Longing for the sound of an old freight train
Sometimes sleeping 'neath the stars above
Living the life he's learned to love

Got all he needs strapped across his back
Too much up ahead to start looking back
Live for the moment. Don't regret the past
All the years go by so fast

In a cheap hotel on a lonely night
He felt the pain and the time was right
He prayed Dear Jesus I'll no longer roam
Tell my Father I'm coming home.

Leave the Ninety-nine

We must leave the ninety-nine
To go search and find
The one lost sheep
Wand'ring far behind
We must leave the ninety-nine
To go search and find
The one lost sheep-
Left behind  (Chorus)

Just suppose one of you has a hundred sheep
Then loses one of them and begins to weep
Would you not leave the ninety and nine
And go after the one on your heart and mind
And when it's found you would hold it closer
And carry it home upon your shoulders
Then call all your neighbors and gather all your friends
Celebrating your sheep that's back in the fold again

[Bridge]
Likewise there's more rejoicing
In Heaven up above
Over one lost soul who will repent
Than for the ninety-nine
Who are already found
To be righteous and so obedient  (So..)

(Chorus)

Now suppose one of you has ten silver coins
But then loses one of them from your collection
Would you not light the house and sweep the floors
Searching very carefully for what is yours 
Would you not put away the other precious nine 
And look in every corner until the lost one you'd find
Then call all your neighbors and gather all your friends
Celebrating you have your coin in your hand again

[Bridge]

(Chorus)

[Bridge2]
But don't forsake the congregation
And now's the time for visitation
To lead the lost ones to salvation
With God's angels in celebration

(Chorus)

MY WISHES ARE SMALL IN SIZE

Snowflakes don't make me forget 
the lovely places where we lay...
everything that's being covered by
the cold and fluffy snow;
there are many precious things that
won't ever be buried below!

My wishes are small in size,
but big in their meaning...
like the eternal images
of a past Christmas' memory:
laughing and caroling...while 
strolling down the festive streets
of a city that never stops to greet:
the stranger,the dreamer and the seeker!
My wishes are small in size...
that even imagination can't summarize!

Folks are so busy going to 
and from...rushing through the drifting snow,
making sure everyone is on their list;
we are in a different kind of spirit...
the one that lasts through
this merry and thoughtful season of awe:
making wishes that have
true delights and more!  
 

My wishes are small in size,
but big in their meaning;
as the snow slowly falls, I fantasize...
a Christmas' dream is beginning!

MY GOOD-BYE IN SONG

You came away looking innocent,
nothing pointed out to suspecion
that could do a lot harm...
by hiding what was really important;
even the words you said made
such a good impression
to let you have me whenever you would,
to shut those eyes to something very wrong!

My good-bye in song
will help you carry along; inside
I may hurt...but not very long;
who will be by my side
when the need is strong?
My good-bye in song
can't be explained without words...
to feel the loss in my empty hands! 

Someone's else eyes search for mine,
how could I betray the truest and deepest feeling...
remembering the warm touches we were sharing?
Another hand is ready to hold mine,
and another smile different from yours...
can change,overnight, these love-blues!

My good-bye in song
is no exscuse to forget my set-back;
only to hold on this regret...
until I hear your apology,
but who can bring back that fantasy?

" In Maudlin Verse "

In maudlin verse his tale was told,
Of sailors, ships or captains bold.
Naught for us but fancy seemed,
Thought mayhap 'twas what he'd dreamed.

Of sea or song or adventure grand,
We listened well all us of land.
As wind caressed our mountains old,
In maudlin verse his tale was told.

In hope of journey without end,
We all to him our ears did lend.
Thus we found our hearts he rent,
In maudlin verse our day he spent.

His eyes were clouds upon a sea,
His voice cold wind of yesterday.
We found his tale more a plea,
In maudlin verse so swept away.

To us he spoke of sights so seen,
Of wonders imagined in deepest dream.
Of times of riches or days of lean,
To us his tale real did seem.

As he spoke dark clouds did gather,
Wind once swift now grew slack.
Sky once blue took hue of black,
In maudlin verse his tale he'd rather.

Worlds unknown yet discovered,
Moons above us the while hovered.
Maudlin was his tale that day,
Our very hearts so did he stay.

London

She called herself London
On that day 
She fell from the sky
Child of apple blossoms
Dancing wildly
Into your mind

The snake that hung from her neck
Bites your hand
Expels you from Eden
Tears into the cool flesh
Of your madness
Posing as reason

London
Kisses you like a sweet lover
As though she really cares
Lets you 
Taste the passionate orchard
In her body’s secret lair

London
Wrestles with all your demons
Nothing quite compares
To the pain 
The indecent pleasure
In the waters that you share

Her name was London
Call her London

She called herself London
On that night
She prayed to the moon
Apollo’s lyre
Played darkly
In a portent 
Of your own doom

The hell she hides 
In her soul
Toxic drug you’ll never escape
You crave the milk of her touch
Her strange and dangerous ways

London
Kisses you like a sweet lover
As though she really cares
Lets you 
Taste the passionate orchard
In her body’s secret lair

London
Wrestles with all your demons
Nothing quite compares
To the pain 
The indecent pleasure
In the waters that you share  

Her name was London
Call her London

My baby, London
Call her London
My moon-girl, London 
Call her London

I love her, London
Call her London
Forever, London 

I call her London……

When the Lavender Returns

As cold as ice
Wrapped round your brain
And darkness unfolds
You’re breathing in pain

It’s been freezing here   
In this Land of Shattered Dreams 
It’s been freezing here 
This corrupted winter stings 

It’s been freezing here  		
(Où est la Lavande?)
Your body can’t stay warm  	
(Où est la Lavande?)
 It’s been freezing here  		
(Où est la Lavande?)
This cruel and criminal storm  	
(Où est la Lavande?)

But don’t give up
Don’t despair
Taste the hope 
Floating through the air

When the lavender returns
It’ll warm your frozen bones
Vivid violet clothes
In their candy overtones

When the lavender returns
It’ll race across the land
Rebel flower grows
In the palm of your free hand

If you look out your window
The ground’s parched and bare
If you call for your lover
She’s no longer there
If you ponder your life
Well, it feels like a wreck
And your failures are scars
You can never forget

As leaves turn brown
Sky fades to grey
You’re feeling the drought
The end of the day

It’s been lonely here
In this World of Fallen Souls
It’s been lonely here
With nowhere left to go

But don’t give up
Don’t despair
Taste the hope 
Floating through the air 

When the lavender returns
It’ll warm your frozen bones
Vivid violet clothes
In their candy overtones 

When the lavender returns   	
(Où est la Lavande?)
It’ll race across the land 	         
(Où est la Lavande?)
Rebel flower grows  			
(Où est la Lavande?)
In the palm of your free hand   	
(Où est la Lavande?)

When the lavender returns    	
(Où est la Lavande?)
It’ll warm your frozen bones   	
(Où est la Lavande?)
Vivid violet clothes  			 
(Où est la Lavande?)
In their candy overtones

NO MAN STANDS ALONE - The Ballad of Barney Ross

CHORUS
No man stands alone
in the street, the ring or the combat zone
some lay in the gutter
some sit on a throne
but no man stands alone

At the age of fourteen 
he had a dream
to become a rabbi 
Chicago 1924
then his dad was killed by men
who tried to rob the family store
his brothers and sisters were sent away
to an orphanage where they would stay
and though his faith was blown away
he vowed to bring them home someday

To God and man revenge he swore
he walked with gamblers, 
hoods and whores
he fit right in 
then on a whim
he walked into a boxing gym
he fought Canzoneri in ‘33
for the lightweight title victory
he made up with God 
and finally
he could reclaim his family

Those McLarnon fights 
were the stuff of lore
the only man 
to ever put him on the floor
he won two out of three, 
then in the Armstrong bout
he nearly died 
but was never knocked out
then in 1941
the Japanese pulled a sneaky one
so he joined the marines 
and he got a gun
and he sailed into the rising sun

On Guadalcanal, 
he fought so brave
overmatched like old King Dave
he put twenty attackers 
in an early grave
for the one marine 
whose life he saved
in a hospital bed 
for months and days
they kept him in a morphine haze
then sent him home 
strung out and beat
to the pushers on the mean, mean street

Hollywood was very keen
to put his story on the silver screen
but they focused on the drug abuse
he tried to sue 
but what’s the use?
Barney Ross was brave and strong
they couldn’t keep him down for long
his rabbi said that he must try
to be a model Jew in the public eye

but from the public eye he slipped
like a phantom radar blip
they say he hunted Nazi criminals
and he ran some guns to Israel

Barney Ross was brave and strong
I thought that he deserved a song
he did some bad
he did some good
and he saved the world
the best he could

Waiting for you

I’m  just waiting for you
Come back to me every night

I’m  just waiting for you
Without you life  is cloudy  sky

I’m  just waiting for you
Waiting  to  fly  with you    
To cuddle with me  every night

I’m  just waiting for you
Without you live is boiling bubbly 
Come back to me every night

With This New Day

I have lived, 
And felt the cost, 
Paid my dues, 
But I have lost_ You. 


 Still I pray, 
As chaos looms, 
And as my blue turns into grey, 
I hear__ 
The angels sing- In tune. 

 Don't be giving in, 
Don't give up my son, 
Or fade away, 
Lift your chin with the sun__ And rise, 
With this new day!. 

 I have lived, 
And felt the cost of all my wonderin ways, 
I've paid my dues, 
I - Have lost you. 


 I can hear the angels sing, 
Your in a mistaken land__ Lessons learned in truth, 
As the grey seeks out the blue, 
She will__ Your daughter my son--- 
She will return--- To You.

For I have lived, 
Felt the cost of all my walkin days, 
I've paid my dues, 
I- Lost you....


I wont be giving in, 
Won't give up my girl, 
Or fade away, 
I'll lift my chin with the sun--- 
And RISE-- 
With this new day...

Rose Hips Lady

Rose hips lady
Your field is ripe
Bury my torn body
In that rain-soaked night

Taste those sweet confessions
On your baby breath
Lift this wounded flag
Into your burning nest

Oh, yes, I will
I will

Rose hips lady
Your field is ripe
Bury my torn body
In that rain-soaked night

Tame the roaring tiger
Never lets you rest
Take my last reward 
From your moonlit breasts

Oh, yes, I will
I will

Daddy’s gone hunting 
He’s gone away
Daddy’s gone hunting
Won’t be back for days

Left you with a lover
Makes a shrine 
Of your skin

Left you with a lover
Takes you down
Roads of sin

Left you all alone 
Alone

And the knots cut deep
Through the musk and flesh
Of hot regret
And the love you need
It’s a shadow
Never lets you rest

You release the Beast
From a well that’s wet
You will confess
That the love you need
It’s a shadow
Never lets you rest

Rose hips lady
Aaaaaah......

The Miracle

Lift the wailing wood
Hammer the tortured nails
Place the ghostly steps
Below the battered rails

Invite those crazy strangers
Dressed in stranger clothes
Join the mighty miracle 
Ready to unfold

Building a stairway 
In the desert
Aimed toward the pure and honest sky
Building a stairway
In the desert
Going to rise for miles
And miles 

Leave this evil town
Where scorpions share your bed
Guilty snakes make a home
Deep inside your head

The bleeding sun
Burns your feet
Hangmen joke
Beggars weep

Buried bodies
Cry for help
Undertakers
Steal your wealth

Building a stairway 
In the desert
Aimed toward the pure and honest sky
Building a stairway
In the desert
Going to rise for miles
And miles 

We’re laughing and      					
We’re dancing				 	
In the desert				
Dancing in the desert			
Of our lives				

Can’t you see?
We’re dancing in the desert
Dancing in the desert 
Of our lives

Feel so free				
Dancing in the desert				
Dancing in the desert 			 		
Of our lives				

Free….so free
In the desert
Dancing in the desert
Of our lives

Lift the wailing wood
Hammer the tortured nails

Fireworks Hill

Let’s go climb
And move back time
To that mysterious hill
Where a boy first met his girl

Long before 
The cynics arrived
Before the laughter died
And God returned the day to night

Where dazzling fireworks
Rained sparkles
On our lives
Two strange birds
Came together
And opened up their eyes

Let’s go climb 
We’ll move back time

Fireworks Hill, Fireworks Hill
Far from my mind
Never forgotten
Fireworks Hill, Fireworks Hill
We became one there
So very often

And there are vivid colors 
Blasting through the sky
Dancing rainbows 
I really want to taste
There is weeping smoke
Painting all the stars
Burning graveyards 
For the human race

Let’s go climb
And move back time
To that mysterious hill
Where a boy first met his girl

We’ll race to the edge
Fulfill our pledge
It was written in blood
The heat of our love

Oh, jump, baby, jump
We’ll fly away together
Jump, baby, jump
Our bodies joined forever

Let’s go climb
And move back time 
To that mysterious hill
Where a boy first met his girl

Fireworks hill, fireworks hill
I see the sparkles in the air
Fireworks hill, fireworks hill
I smell the dazzle of your hair
Fireworks hill, Fireworks hill
We flew to Heaven over there

Let’s go climb
We’ll move back time
(Forever…with you)

I'm Comin' Home

Well, I'm high on country music.
And my mind, it won't refuse it.
The memories of our love.
I'm comin' home..

And I'm high on constellations.
Buddy, I've got relations.
The memories of our love.
I'm comin' home..

Now, you see it your way.
And baby, I see it my way.
The memories of our love.
I'm comin' home..

'Cause I'm high on country music.
And my mind, it won't refuse it.
The memories of our love.
I'm comin' home..

And I'm high on constellations.
And buddy, I've got relations.
The memories of our love.
I'm comin' home..

Now, you see it your way.
And baby, I see it my way.
The memories of our love.
I'm comin' home..

'Cause I'm high on country music.
And my mind, it won't refuse it.
The memories of our love.
I'm comin' home..

Don't Break My Heart

Don't break my heart.
It's a heart that'll carry on forever.

Don't break my heart.
Your love to me's the loveliest thing.

Don't break my heart.
Say you won't, from the very start.

Don't break my heart..
Find a way to keep my love.

Don't break my heart.
A love like ours will never die.

Don't break my heart.
It's a heart that'll carry on forever..

Don't break my heart.
Your love to me's the loveliest thing.

Don't break my heart..
Say you won't, from the very start.

Don't break my heart..
Find a way to keep my love..

Don't break my heart.
A love like ours will never die..

Antigone

I am the face of misery
My life, a dissonance of autumn and spring,
The years are written in the same
Lugubrious, nostalgic grey
How can it be the author to blame?
I cannot scream this all away…
Burn nor Bleed this all away…
To Death I am Ordained

Lacuna ever growing
With Velvet sheets of life flowing
Aeons apart of my "royalty"
Under the mask the cannot see...
Can you dispel this tragedy:
Antigone - Epiphany failing

If it must be…
Then just kill me,
(Antigone) sing me out of reality;
I wear this dissonant crown of shame
(Antigone) Of a kingdom's disdain
I hate to be this way... normalcy's bane
(Antigone) Here comes the edict, to blame
The sordid child of Thebes,
This is me,
Antigone

No words of hope
No words of hate
Do I have Lenore to send to me:
The sordid child of Thebes
Caught In the longest nightmare
life - the slowest way to die

I know this is my life 
But I'm not under control
under the mask the will see
Just Another Human

If it must be…
Then just kill me,
(Antigone) sing me out of reality;
I wear this dissonant crown of shame
(Antigone) Of a kingdom's disdain
I hate to be this way... normalcy's bane
(Antigone) Here comes the edict, to blame
The sordid child of Thebes,
This is me,
Antigone

If it must be…
Then just kill me,
(Antigone) sing me out of reality;
I wear this dissonant crown of shame
(Antigone) Of a kingdom's disdain
I hate to be this way... normalcy's bane
(Antigone) Here comes the edict, to blame
The sordid child of Thebes,
This is me,
Antigone

Can you dispel my life; this tragedy?
Can you control the storm in my mind?
I'm asking you: can you rid me
Of The Curse of Antigone?

Pan and Satan

Pan and Satan.

One morning I was walking in my garden
When old Jupiter came up close to me.
And standing by his side stood fair Demeter
Who smiled at me so warm and tenderly.
She said “my son we’ve come to give our blessings
And we’ve a story we would like to tell.
Of how the great God Pan turned into Satan
And child I hope that you will listen well.

For Pan he was the god of natures beauty
And he wore no taint till Satan came along.
He’d play his pipes so gaily in the meadows
Though sometimes there was mischief in his song.

Then Satan said to pan “well I don’t give a damn
I’m going to steal your horns and make you me.
Then I’ll build a master plan and strike some fear in man
So always he will live in misery.
And that’s the way old Pan became young Satan
Yet still the old one dances deep within.
But if the two had never joined together
Then where would dwell the ugliness of sin.

little feet

they run around the house
yet they do not utter a whisper...
they pit pat down the street with sweet grass on their mind
and never once complain of the hot concrete
they step on nails and tacks and thorns
yet never speak of the cuts and bruises
they come in all shapes
all sizes
and they all long for the soft sweet grass
that lay just around the bend
and the grass makes it all worth it

Voice in the Night

How do I thank
The voice in the night?
Call of hope
After the world turned dark

How do I thank
The voice in the night?
Healing words
Made from
Angel heart

Oh, her chocolate whisper
Warm convincing breeze
Oh, her breathy laughter
In the shadow of my need 

Don’t you hear the voice?
Save  you from despair
Don’t you hear the voice?
Sent by ghosts who care

Don’t you hear the voice?
Rises like a prayer
Come to rescue you
From your earthly snare

How do I thank
The voice in the night?
Call of hope 
Kissed my tears away

How do I thank
The voice in the night?
Now I dance
To a magic serenade

Don’t you hear the voice?
Memories of home
Don’t you hear the voice?
Pretty as a poem

Don’t you hear the voice?
Vivifies your soul
Bathes you in a pool 
Love you’ve never known

How do I thank
The voice in the night?
Call of hope
After the world turned dark

Voice inside the darkness
Gets into my head
Lady caller,
Take me, take me
To your bed

Voice inside the darkness
Gets into my head
Lady caller
Raise me, raise me
From the dead

Voice inside the darkness
Gets into my head

Way Up High

Way up high
In the sky
That’s where we will be-will be
Soring there
In the air
Up above the clouds
You and I

Way up high
Where the birds fly
You are safe- safe with me
Soring there
Through the air
Sleep little one
Sweet dreams to thee

The Repetition of Pain

my heart is bleeding
tears and blood dripping from insanity.

how cruel can life be 
so many drops of rain and still i find reality

it is so cold to be found
in a place where i never wish i would be

it is breaking me down
to the core of the earth that drives me out to what 

i want to be.

and i pray with my knees on the ground

my hands held up high 

because i dont want to say goodbye.
and i realised

i dont have a choice

and i seek and hunt for the dreams i wish

my head held up high

because this is who am i 
and i realised

i do have a voice

i will shout out loud
i will cry in pain
i will yell out loud
when my journey with you begins ..

i will scream out loud
i will take the pain
throw it away

and i will live a new day.

and i pray to God
i pray to Him

Please give me hope

Please give me strength 

to live for just another day

Remembering those days

Remembering those days

I’m remembering those days
That I’d be there on that stage
Blowing a storm on the old blues harp
Oh man, I used to rage
Some said that I was the best
And I loved that ego boost
So I would wail those blues notes out
All hanging kind of loose.

The folk would come and buy me drinks
And praise me up a bit
And I would smoke the wacky baccy
Oh man, I really loved it
And then I’ get so bloody soulful
I’d forget just where I was
My eyes all closed my body swaying
Like a man completely lost.

Sometimes I’d open up my eyes
And folk were standing there
All their dancing stopped by me
With people everywhere
Just watching me the way I played
Entrancement on their dials
Then afterwards they’d buy me beer
And everyone was smiles.

But then I’d get stuck in the booze
And my head would start to spin
And with my big, loud cockney mouth
I’d raise a lot of din
Always got myself in trouble
Cause boy I loved me grog
I guess I’ve settled down a bit
Life’s really tamed this dog.

Gentle music

Gentle music

Always I’ve loved music
How I love to write those songs
I love to bash on the old guitar
And sing my words so strong
But gentle always does it
Sheer noise, I cannot stand
I love a real sweet melody
With a lovely soft, sweet band.

It seems the melody has gone
From music, now these days
Everyone just screams and shouts
Their minds all in a haze
From every kind of booze and drugs
All sweetness played right out
The young guys call it music
But me, I have my doubts.

I write my songs with sweetness
The words as plain as day
I need to get my words across
Not put folk in a daze
I want to see folk happy
Not doped out of their heads
I’m not out to feed the mind
I choose the heart instead.

Zero

I was born pale and invisible
In a world
Sees everything 
Everything, everything….but me

Invisible to your touch
And doubt you’ll like me very much
Am I alive?
Was I ever me?

I’m a non-existent cipher
A pointless empty zero
Never added up to anything
A non-existent cipher
Pointless empty zero
Tell me….what does it all mean?

And now I think I want you
Ethereal body
Oblivious mask
And now I think I love you
Intelligent lips
Painted in black

But no need to look my way
Or give me the time of day

Can’t be with you 
In this world
Invisible man 
Never gets the girl

Oh, no...

I’ll find where you are
And watch from afar
You will be felt by me

I’ll find where you are
And watch from afar
You will be loved by me

Your 
Zero 
Tonight
Your 
Zero 
For life
Your zero
The day I die

Your zero….your zero

Tribute to bob Dylan

Tribute to Bob Dylan

I remember well when I was young
And music was my thing
There was Billy, Elvis Cliff Richard
And to me these guys did bring
Wonderful moments in my life
As I bought all of their stuff
But then this other guy came out
And Lord, that was enough

My interest it went to him
Who changed the status Quo
His name it was Bob Dylan
And me I watched him grow
From a young folk star, to a rock legend
He did change music’s face
As he prophesized some potent things
That would touch the human race.

He told us in his screaming voice
[As he played his mystic role]
That all the sons and daughters
Would be out of our control
He sang of the whole world changing
And I’m seeing that come true
Oh Yes, that old Bob Dylan
I loved what he did do.

Nothing Matters

Inspired by and based on L’Étranger by Albert Camus


I'm a stranger to you, even stranger to me
I'll pass you by like a memory
Of innocence and ignorant bliss.
I feel nothing every time we kiss

I feel nothing each day I'm alive
Nothing matters, we're all gonna die
When and how, I could not care less
I don't care for the life over which you obsess

It can be changed but should I bother?
This life is just like any other
So taciturn and disarrayed
Oh, didn't Mother die today?

Reflecting the sunshine on the blade of a knife 
To turn away or to take his life?
I stopped to think as he hit the floor
His breathless body took four more

Now I'm being punished for refusing to lie
If my life is the price then I'll sacrifice
I am not like you, I refuse to pretend
And if truth equals crime then I will not amend

It can be changed but should I bother?
This life is just like any other
So taciturn and disarrayed
Oh, didn't Mother die today?

But I found myself in this nothingess 
And learnt to embrace the indifference
The end is nearing but there is no pain
For some strange reason, I feel happy again

I'm a stranger to you, even stranger to me
My blind rage has washed me clean
Proud to say that in this life so absurd
I never belonged to your condemned herd

I could have changed it but I didn't bother
This death is just like any other
So taciturn and disarrayed
Oh, dear Mother, I'm alive again

Isolation

How can I tell you?
I can't stay with you.

Neither I can give up on you.
Fear of losing you is losing me.
It feels like slow death every night.

But we are just stuck in our spaces!
Unable to connect from two feet distance.

The Perfect Woman

An honest smile and truthful eyes
A road slinger who loves a surprise
A worker who dreams of the world
Needs the road and loves a whirl

Understands my past and hers
Comfortable with herself in showers
Loves good vibes and the bad
Appreciates the love and even the sad

Wants more to life than bottom line
Takes a random hint as a sign
Embraces silence for it is rare
Take a chance, perfect woman, if you dare

Give Me a Shot

As soon as I walk in, 
you walk right up to me;
And I know what I want, 
but you ask me what I need.
I know you're just doin' your job, 
and I'm just doin' mine,
but I cannot help but wonder if you're open, come closin' time.

There aren't many people, 
with whom, I get along;
And there are even fewer, 
for whom, I'll write a song,
but you like to hear me sing, 
and I like to watch you pour.
I wonder if there's something that we both would like much more.

Hey, bartender.  Would you wait on me?
I guess I'll just have to wait and see. 		
But I don't care if it's last call or not - 
Hey, bartender.  Would you give me a shot?

Let's make a toast:  To making the most of most.
Let us not look to see.  What will be, will be.

So, when you close out my tab,
and I ask for one more thing;
And say, "Could you call me - a cab?" 
'Stead of "Call me in the morning."
'Cause I don't wanna go too far, 
but I don't wanna go without; 
So, if I am where you are, 
please, bartender, don't close me out.

Very Hot Day

Oooohh! You cruise to the beach.
You cruise to the sand.
You cruise all across this land.

Oooohh! And when it gets hot.
You find the right spot.
A spot with lots of shade.

Oooohh! And when it gets hot.
You find the right spot.
Where the water's clear and fresh.

Because Oooohh! It's a very, very, very hot day.
And the water just cools you down..
Cools you down..
Cools you down..

It's a very, very, very hot day.
And the water just cools you down.
Cools you down..
Cools you down..

Oooohh! You cruise to the Sun.
You join in on the fun.
View the desert along the way.

Oooohh! And when it gets hot.
You find the right spot.
A place to cool it down..

Oooohh! And when it gets hot.
You find the right spot.
An oasis near the sand.

Because Oooohh! It's a very, very, very hot day.
And the water just cools you down.
Cools you down..
Cools you down..

It's a very, very, very hot day.
And the water just cools you down..
Cools you down..
Cools you down..

When I Find The Right Words

I've been thinking for many days.
I've been trying a long long time.
I've been trying to say it's true.
Trying to say I love you.

There was only one problem I had.
And it was to find the right words to say.

When I find the right words.
When I find the right words to say.
You'll find it's true that I love you.
When I find the right words.

I'm speaking of you.
You'll find that it's true.
You'll find it's true that I love you.
When I find the right words.

Now as time goes by.
I still bear in mind, I love you.
And as time goes by.
I still bear in mind, my love for you.

There's still only one thing I've got to do.
And that's to find the right words.

When I find the right words.
When I find the right words to say.
You'll find it's true that I love you.
When I find the right words.

I'm still speaking of you.
You'll still find that it's true.
You'll find it's true that I love you.
When I find the right words.

When I find the right words..

I've Got Graceland on my Mind

I've got Graceland on my mind
A place frozen in time
Adorned with a love
I've never known
I need to be in the place
Where Elvis called home
I want to laugh in the lemon lounge
And visit in the jungle room
Graceland don't change a thing
I want to get lost in the home of the king
I've got Graceland on my mind
It's where i want to be
I've got Graceland on my mind
It feels so sweet to me
I've got Graceland on my mind
It's where i need to be
I've got Graceland on my mind
It feels so real to me
I want to sit on that long leather couch
And dream all my troubles away
Graceland wait for me
I'm leaving today
It's where an icon once lived
A place where dreams come true
It's where life can still be found
I'm going down to Graceland now
May we all gather at Graceland
To share in the dream
And on my way down to Graceland
I'll stop in on the Reverend Al Green

He's My Hero- SONG 3

He might be just a photograph,
but I know he's more than that despite
what people say.
His love and words are stronger than steel,
the distance won't make me stop loving him.

He's strong, always pushing on, 
Never looking back.
He left the things and ones he 
loves behind knowing
this might be the last time
and he's mine
HE'S MY HERO

To feel his embrace, to listen to his voice, 
to hear his breath.
I don't care about the consequences
I just want to be with what's
Mine
'till he can't stay anymore.

When he has to be strong, and push on
trying his hardest not to look
back.
He left his life and the one he
loved behind knowing
that this could be the last time
but he's mine
HE'S MY HERO

I can't sleep at night, knowing he's
out there, somewhere. 
Is he safe?
How can I pray?
Oh, GOD, please bring him home!
I can't live without him.
Just bring him home 'cause

I don't know how I can stay strong
and push on
as he's watching his and his brothers' backs.
He left the one he loves at home
knowing there's that
chance. 
But he's mine.
And I don't care about anyone else
'cause
HE'S MY HERO

Hear my prayer...
          Bring him home...
Distance won't stop my love...
I just want to be with him...

He's strong, still pushing on
No longer looking back.
He's back to the things and ones he
left behind knowing
he's back to stay.
And he's mine.
HE'S MY HERO

He's Mine...

         HE'S MY HERO...

For the love of you

If only I could make you see
that you mean so much more to me,
a priceless gift, wrapped in a smile,
the dream that makes my day worthwhile,
undoubted proof there is a God,
the joy that not all hope is gone.
To me you are that piece of mind,
that gives the world such sweet reply
that although love is sometimes lost,
its remnants left will never die-

How more could I express my love
for words are but the breath in me
what more can I, a man still do
except to give what's left of me . . .
for lips can flatter all too well
and sing the praise of many things
but you are in a different class
to you . . . . . I give my everything!

If ever I do fail to prove
my strong and constant love for you
then never have I lived a day
or ever took a breath anew.

God gave me you

Love's undeniable journey 
explores all life,touches an 
amazing earth only you and
I can share between time.


All ups n' downs come with
Fortune n' price, but together
We will shatter a mountain of
Rock.

A place we can go hide closely 
cuddled cave, against the 
Closure of your misled arms,
Wrapped tightly around a spin
Of Saturn's that ring me.

As Pluto's fire, breaks guard 
closer to the sun.....Where GOD 
GAVE ME YOU] And an UNchained

A Man from Gallilee

           
                      A  Man from Gallilee

              I met a man the other day
             Said he would take my sins away
             He opened eyes and made the blind to see
             And  said  he would be a friend to me

             He was a Man from Gallilee 
             He was a Man from Gallilee

             The strangest man I had ever known
             Said the end from the beginning was known
             And he knew I would be here
             Said beware for the end is near

             He was a Man from Gallilee
             He was a Man from Gallilee

            Went to the Temple for to pray
            Chased the traders all away
            How dare you treat this Temple so
            All this trash will have got to go

            This man that’s known to you and me
            This man was JESUS – The Son of God

Without You (Song)

Daylight fade,
Burning through my eyes,
She walked out of my life
Again, I'm feeling low,
One more time girl here we go,
Now I'm falling, a final time,
Wish the sunlight didn't shine

It's getting critical
But girl I just can't help it,
I'm feeling miserable
Without you I'm so helpless,
I can't even sleep
Don't want to be, without you,
It's getting hard to breathe,
There is no me, without you,

And baby I try and try
to let you go,
The more I fight,
The more I know,
There's nothing in this life,
I want to do,
Without you,

Passing days,
I try to ease my mind,
I want make it this time,
because, she's really gone,
Lying here I'm all alone,
with nothing, to comfort me,
I'm hanging on to memories,

It's getting critical
But girl I just can't help it,
I'm feeling miserable
Without you I'm so helpless,
I can't even sleep
Don't want to be, without you,
It's getting hard to breathe,
There is no me, without you,


And baby I try and try
to let you go,
The more I fight,
The more I know,
There's nothing in this life,
I want to do,
Without you,

It's getting critical,
Girl I just can't help it,

There's nothing
in this life,
I want to do,
Without you

Atrocious Nightmares

When you fall asleep
That's when it starts
Explosions and screams
Terrorize your heart

As your panic grows
The blood flows
Through the streets
Atrocious nightmares
Never leave you alone

When you fall asleep
A bundle of Love
My cradle of sweet

I want to be the one
I have to be the one

Baby, let me be the sponge
Absorbs all your pain
Arms
Wrapped around you
Protects you again

Baby, let me be the rope
Saves you from a fall
Daddy
Standing by you
Giving it his all

When you fall asleep 
That's when it begins
Hysteria and mayhem
Spread 'neath your skin

As your fear mounts
The dead body counts
Jump like wounded beasts
Atrocious nightmares
Never leave you alone

When you fall asleep
A bundle of love
My cradle of sweet

I want to be the one
I have to be the one

Baby, let me be the sponge
Absorbs all your pain
Arms
Wrapped around you
Protects you again

Baby, let me be the rope
Saves you from a fall
Daddy
Standing by you
Giving it his all

I want to be the one
I have to be the one
Don't you see?

I'm the one.

What Cowboys Do

On that ranch in the west.
We got us a cowboy dude.
On that ranch in the west.
We do what cowboys do.

Six gun by his hand.
He's carrying a shotgun too.
On that ranch in the west.
We got us a cowboy dude.

Gotta rope at his side.
Gonna ride and rope today.
Gotta rope at his side.
Gonna bring them cattle this way.

On that ranch in the west.
We got us a cowboy dude.
On that ranch in the west.
We do what cowboys do.

When them cows come home.
We'll get ourselves some rest.
When them cows come home.
We'll put ourselves to the test.

I think I'll go out.
And pitch myself a tent.
I think I'll go out.
And avoid from paying the rent.

On that ranch in the west.
We got us a cowboy dude.
On that ranch in the west.
We do what cowboys do.

On that ranch in the west.
We got us a cowboy dude.
On that ranch in the west.
We do what cowboys do.

We just do what cowboys do.
We just do what cowboys do.
We just do what cowboys do...

Time to Add More Love

The world's just not the same
This empire in decline
Roses don't smell as sweet
Only grow half their size

And I say....

Baby, doesn't it make you feel sad inside?

And I say...

Baby, doesn't it make you want to cry?

Let's protect ourselves 
From the coming flood
Won't need no bullets
Just our shield of love

Let's protect ourselves
From the coming storm
Won't need no raincoats
While love keeps us warm

Time to put more wood
On the dying fire
Of hope

Time to add more love
Gonna raise this
Sinking boat

And I say....

Baby, doesn't it make you feel sad inside?

And I say....

Baby doesn't it make you want to cry?

You're all I need
To get through this 
Doom and gloom
Your love for me
And my love for you.

Boyfriend

This was not what I planed
It was never my intention
I went to see a concert with my friend
Along with his cute cousin

This is not something I’m used to
But I went to take you for a run
My amazement for you
Caught your attention

Yes I do know your name
I love you to death
You are my experimental gain
Relax, its human nature

It’s not what nice boys do
But we’re not all good
In fact we’re quite wicked
It’s hard to behave

Parents say that’s so wrong
Wrong to love someone
Someone who is gay
Gay is what I am

JOY

As the autumn of life drifts in
The lights of my eyes grow dim
With the joy of my years
Still beside me here
There is not much that I will fear

As the winter of my life arrives
My voice will be just a whisper
With the joy of my salvation
Waiting for me at the station
I will in quiet adoration kneel

In my mind spring will beckon me
The baggage  old and beat I'll leave
With the joy of my life just within sight
The constant yearning will cease
As perfect  joy will become complete

Looking for Jesus

He did not have to
It was not mandatory

But He did.

Leaving the luxury
Of His Father’s splendour
His home of indescribable
Beauty and grandeur

He peeped
He descended
He came down
To me

The living condition 
In my habitation
Was one of discomfort and stench
Filled with broken promises,
Pains from the past,
Hopelessness for the future.

Yet He made up His mind about me
Unlike me-
He did not have second thoughts
About the weather,
The leaking pots
The rusty bath tub
The aged sofa
Or the things I had done
And had not done
He moved in with me
This Christmas
He promised me a love:
Never forsaking
Never dying
Never ending

Dear God,
If you are looking for Jesus this Christmas,
He moved in with me

A song about my cat

My cat went a roaming to find a new home.
Sing kitty,sing katty,sing Oh!
This cat was so clever he had his own comb.
Look up,now look down,stone the crows!

He went into the neighbours' and drank all their milk.
Sing,fridge raiding kitties.No,No!
Then he laid himself down on a piece of fine silk.
Sing,what the dickens,my lovely pillow!

He went to the butcher and ate all the steak.
Sing greedy,he's ruined my flow.
Then he went to the hairdresser for a shampoo.
Where else can a puttitat go?

He had no plastic,no money,no cheque!
Sing,cheater,sing creature,sing woe.
She sent for a Copper who paid the cat's bill.
And so  my puss came out all aglow.

Now my cat was glossy and plump and refreshed.
Sing:fancy,it all goes to show.
So he came home and said this place is best.
And he picked up his cello and bow.

He scraped some Sibelius and also some Grieg.
Sing: Northern lights can always glow.
But,he looked so self satisfied,I felt annoyed....
One should not let one's narcissism show.

But he was so handsome,I was glad he came home.
Sing,grateful,sing katefull,sing Ho!
And I hope he will never again want to roam.
Sing glory.sing story;Sing So!

Don’t you know Deirdre’s gone? Don’t you know Deirdre’s gone? I can sence her embrace that feels like Tragedy A heart to have, slipped beneath the waves The dark pulse now beckons us closer How many days will this passion bleed away? We will be the ones left to blame Beware we’ve become their prey They say you’re addicted to your pain A lifeless cold barren soul left to die in the rain A whisper too close to the edge A call from the dark Brings out a saving spark An Exodus from her Pain Her Life Spent breathing in Shame A Shadow Call breaks the Silence Am I the one to blame?

Anwnn

Coming from the misty lake Lough Leane
Came a beautiful maiden of the name of Niamh
Upon a mare, for she is not from the world of man
A seraphic princess from Anwnn
Upon the shores she claimed around his kin
"I have came for Oisin son of Finn"
"Maiden you come to me so alluringly 
I am he, if we marry for all eternity!"

And so he rode upon her horse to the secrets of Anwnn
For he and she, they'd be happy for all eternity 

Come with me to Anwnn
I am she, your queen Niamh
I have come for you Oisin, son of Finn
Don't leave me or you'll see 
The age of man

MARY'S BABY

To Bethlehem a virgin came--
A pilgrim and a stranger,
'Twas here she bore a baby boy,
And laid Him in a manger.

While shepherds watched their flocks by night, 
In nearby fields abiding, 
A host of the Heaven's angels came,
To sing the wondrous tidings.

The wise men followed, long and far,
God's guiding star before them.
They knelt before the newborn king
To worship and adore Him.

Mary's baby, sweet and mild,
The long awaited Christ child.
She called his name Immanuel--
God is with us; all is well.

THE MAINTOP BALLADEER

There’s a man I’d like you all to meet whose Aussie through and through,
From his felt hat to his R.M. boots, he ridgy didge, true blue.
He was born in Roma, Queensland, back in nineteen thirty-three
And his parents were from sturdy stock, a pioneer family.
Station life was in this young man’s blood and one can understand
Why he took to writing lyrics based on things he knew first hand;
Those loved tales of some lad’s ‘Silver Spurs’, the ‘Rutland Rodeo’
And ‘A Time When I Was Mustering’ he penned so long ago.

Chorus
Yes, his heart is in his lyrics this tall man from Injune way
And he’s had his songs recorded by top artists in his day.
Yes, Wave Jackson loves his ballads and mate let me make this clear
 He’s admired in music circles as the Maintop Balladeer.


Old Mac Cormack and Joe Daley both wrote lyrics by the score
And along with Wave and Coster … hell  they made an awesome four.
They all had their songs recorded by Slim Dusty through the years
And these men are all respected to this day by all their peers.
Wave continues this tradition and he still writes to this day
And now picks and strums a Maton in the true bush ballad way.
You will find him at most Musters and he’s happy as can be
As today he shares his talents on his very own CD. 

Yes, his heart is in his lyrics this tall man from Injune way                 
And he’s had his songs recorded by top artists in his day.                     
Yes, Wave Jackson loves his ballads and mate let me make this clear          
He’s admired in music circles as the Maintop Balladeer.

Wave has travelled ‘round Australia and he’ll tell you that he’s sold
On the fact there lots of songs out there just waiting to be told.
He then proved this down in Tamworth when he won a gold guitar
And of all his fine achievements it’s the best he says so far.
It has been a wondrous innings for this gentleman of song
And I hope things will continue and his journey will be long.
He’s a real true blue Australian and they are but far and few

Poetic Relationships Aplenty Plus

We all look the same sitting on the toilet
We all look the same sitting in traffic
Nevertheless is nevertheless does
Just because you are on a diet doesn't mean you can't look at the Menu
100% of anything is junk
I am impatient with stupidity
Counter intuitive is counter productive
No one can make u feel inferior without your consent
There are too many people in the world
Wisdom is the practical application of knowledge
Evolution through revolution negating convolution

Some are mine, some are not, 
but a cerebral cord, oh yes, they should rought
that full cranial awareness is still upward thinking, 
but cranial farts of the masses are snot. 
Get with the program get out of your head
and see life's counterparts not measured in dread.
Do something different, skip a life automatic
get off your ass u me and live life pragmatic. 
Forego social domestication that has shaped our existenance
and reach beyond to a place of resistance
be who you want to be what you are to be, 
and don't settle for less F, the powers at Be.

"Yes"

blatant lust

a woman's lust is as carnal as any
man's but has desires of the heart to match
necessary as breathing to have both....
the soft line of her body speaks to me
her eyes burn hot with meanings heartfelt
powerful desire to caress her lovely features washes over me
wanting and being wanted little game we play silently
she is feasting on my blatant lust
heart knowing the beauty of being desired so deeply
wanting to be wanted is its own fantasy furrowing deep in her loins
but a woman's lust is love's strength and body's craving in the same breath
true beauty is found when the two desires meet
when a woman's heart finds the heat of her lust
gives herself to it and takes it by strength of will at the same time
i feel it in her hard embrace while she softly caresses
her soft skin devours my mind
salted hot lustful
run my bare hand over its velvet warmth
and her silken skin speaks to me in
ways only a man can taste with his soul
...her pale thin lips dangerous...eyes closed
kiss long wet deep gentle hard hot
she bites lower lip soft with anticipation
by the nearness of me
i can feel her deep lustful breathing faster longing
her bare skin sets me on fire
her eyes drug me
her soft lips silence me

Two Lonely Hearts

We've been apart, for a very long time.
Time is still on my mind.
I must find my way back to you.

It's been awhile, since you stared in my eyes.
True love never dies.
As the stars begin to shine.

'Cause two lonely hearts.
Come together as one.
In the middle of town.
In the middle of the town.

Two lonely hearts.
Come together as one.
In the middle of town.
In the middle of the town.

You stayed away, for a very long time.
Your thought still on my mind.
I must find my way back to you.

I always thought, you would stand next to me.
You would never leave.
You would never leave my side.

'Cause two lonely hearts.
Come together as one.
In the middle of town.
In the middle of the town.

'Cause two lonely hearts.
Come together as one.
In the middle of town.
In the middle of the town..

REAL MEN DON'T CHEAT ON THEIR WOMEN

God simply made man and woman
to be together for the rest of their lives...
it's a blessing this heedless world
has not fully known;
and it's so rare nowdays
to see two people in love,
and promise each other to be faithful!
Is that all so impossible?

Real men don't cheat on their women,
real men give their whole hearts full of gold
to those who really love them;
I've come to know a good man
who did just that for his woman,
and he still loves her although she's old!

Unfaithful men, would you rather have
an unhappy home or feel a joy
as sublime as the sunrise in glory?
Untrustworthy men, give up what you crave;
you can be the strongest man on earth,
and still can't stop the tears gathered inside!

Real men don't cheat on their women,
real men adore and cherish them 'till they're gone;
to be beside them and share a lovely dream,   
to console and encourage them when they're weak!

Chippewa Falls

Got her name off a cracker box.
Sweet young thing.
You know she really rocks.

She climbs on top.
Keeps me warm at night.

You know that girl.
She's really out of sight..

In Chippewa Falls..

That's right! 

Chippewa Falls.

Wisconsin..

Found her name in the news tonight.
Front page story.
About a girl I knew.

Wound up drinking till the morning light.
Loads of fun.
With a girl named Sue..

In Chippewa Falls.
That's right! 
Chippewa Falls.
Wisconsin..

Sent her home on a train today.
Her smiling face.
Couldn't pay the way..

Bleach blond hair.
Shining bright today.

That's all she needed..
To pave the way...

In Chippewa Falls.
That's right! 
Chippewa Falls.
Wisconsin..
That's right! 
Chippewa Falls..

Toxic Logic

take my soul and crush it... like you do... every day... You've never looked so beautiful as your figure walks away the sad screech of my broken heart as it ceases to play you took me along for the ride of a lifetime, only to throw me away, every single day, and it is a crime, without reason or rhyme, to push me along with your toxic logic,  abandoning me again with an afflicted soul,  and my heart doesn't know that it is your toxic logic that twists me up inside brought on by your reign, and I can't recall my name Once again in my little hell, all by myself, my very essence betrayed, is there any more to tell? Lie after lie has fooled me, but now I'm done But I still love you, so my pain is far from done. You think that I'm inferior to children, that you can't talk to me, though I've been here since day one, why can't you see? that my existence is for you, and no one else,  and the sickest bit of it puts me in a rage... and i try to turn the page...  But I'm trapped in your toxic logic,  abandoning me again with an afflicted soul,  and my heart doesn't know that it is your toxic logic that's killing me inside brought on by your reign, overwhelmed by pain I see the world in black and white, no color left for me, I gaze across the room, and what do I see? I see yet another soul about to be ensnared, by this predator, but I simply don't care. I lost a part of me, and it used to let me love, But it has been snatched from me by this uncaring troll, and here I am, an empty vessel of defeat. I simply don't know, I truly have been beat. But as I retreat... from anger flows heat... Seared by your toxic logic, abandoning me again with an afflicted soul, and my heart doesn't know that it is your toxic logic that branded me inside brought on by your reign... damaged by pain... The last tether to you broke, I'm free at last. an empty part inside remains, holding me fast. I sink to my knees as the vacuum in my soul starts to shrink, loving you brought me to insanity's brink. I slowly raise my head... and gaze ahead... No longer captive to your toxic logic, that abandoned me with an empty soul, and my heart now knows that it was your toxic logic that tortured me inside under your maniacal reign... which gave me nothing but pain…

Siren's Song

She’s alone under beach lights, she’s screaming at air
wishing someone would notice, could anyone hear,
feel the anguish, the loss, losing battle of one?
She’s at war with the world and she’s comming undone.
‘It’s all wrong,’ left her lips, ‘it’s alright,’ said the tides,
‘sometimes we all need a safe place to hide,
to wait inside shadows, return with new light
cause we change and we change till the patterns are right.’
‘But this pounding resounding inside of my head,
I fear is the only thing tangible left.
I can hear it and feel it consuming my head,
eats me up from the inside, lays nothing to rest.’
But the water just turned and it crashed upon rocks,
became angry, determined, climbed onto the dock,
said, ‘Listen to me, I am old and I am wise,
what reason have I to fill you with lies?
I’m a part of your body, a piece of your world,
have I not kept you living since you were a girl?’
But her feet kept on forward at a steady pace
“I’m sick and I'm tired, I'm leaving this place.
I can wait no longer for the turning of time.
I'm the only one left and I’ve been left behind.”
‘But they’re here! Someone’s coming! It won’t be long yet.”
but her mind was as certain as certain could get
and the rushing of water had drown out the sound
as the pounding inside became heavy and loud
and the water, though angry, then grew very still
whispered ‘There is nothing if nothing is fueling a will.
I cannot instill a desire to live, eventual peace is all I could give.’
So she sank and she sang all the air from her lungs,
she breathed in the waves awaited silence to come.
“As I have in you, you may now flow through me,”
and the tides changed again as they dragged her to sea.

free cee TAKE A SPIN IN CRINOLINE

this is a song as yet to be set to music---it's to be sung by a lady so anyone who knows how to sing and write music take this and run with it...i don't want anything except to know someone found it worthy and had the inclination to do something she was born to do:
  TAKE A SPIN IN CRINOLINE

Do you tango?
Do you dance a lot, 
my Sir Lancelot?
Do you cha-cha?
And like me you sure are hot?\

Do you mambo?
Do you Lindy Hop?
Do you slow dance?
And does dancing make your champagne pop?

Do you rumba?
Do you shake your butt about?
Do you do the twist?
Now does it make you scream and shout?

This girl must dance as she must breathe
A two step done from two steps away
A breath apart and ready to dance
Wanting to wiggle and set to sway

Does the band believe in you,
The way that it does me?
Is the music your only muse,
And does the music make you free?

So again I ask you……
Do you tango?
Do you dance a lot, 
my Sir Lancelot?
Do you cha-cha?
And like me are you hot?
And just like me, baby, are you hot?
    CHANGE MELODY
So do you want to quick step, Mister?
With me in silk and crinoline
Don’t peek under my dress demure
As you watch me begin to spin
 
We can rumba and drink some rum
We can ch-ch-chance a cha-cha or two
Put your hands forcefully around my waist
Because Mister, I’m ready to dance with you

You can lead and lead me anywhere
Places you may have seen before
per chane the bar and back again
But I won’t leave this here dance floor
No I won’t leave this here dance floor

Do you tango with your cheek near mine?
And lips so close we share one taste
What is that Mister dancing man,
you don’t dance, oh what a woeful waste?
Yes what a woeful waste

So you don’t tango the way that I do
And your slow dance has slowed to a halt
Well Mister, the fact that you can’t dance
Hell, honey, that ain’t this young chick’s fault

No baby, that ain’t none of this young girl’s fault
No, that ain’t no fault of mine
But let’s not call this love to a halt
Because I said, Mister Mister, 
that just ain’t....... that just ain’t my faultttttttttttt!

Better Than Grace

how can we pretend that everything is okay
when the world is soon to turn to grey
I've took this life and its treasures in vane
when you'd easily trade with me any day

you're amazing better than grace
so amazing just can't turn the page
amazing can't find the strength
to gaze at your face and not look away
look what we've done, coming undone
slowly fading away, so amazing
better than grace

you say they gave you less than six months
never thought it could hurt this much
I'd give anything just to save you
oh what can i do, just say because

you're amazing better than grace
so amazing just can't turn the page
amazing can't find the strength
to gaze at your face and not look away
look what we've done, coming undone
slowly fading away, so amazing
better than grace

with every breath we take, just another test today
don't walk away before it's too late
we should all be ashamed of ourselves because

he's amazing better than grace
so amazing just can't turn the page
amazing can't find the strength
to gaze at your face and not look away
look what we've done, coming undone
slowly fading away, so amazing
better than grace

MY MUSIC

Need we wake up naked the sacred hour of dawn,

to dance to the songs of our fore fathers

In the sacred garden of old .

Need we from the setting rise ,and kiss in the moment the deepest desire of men

An existence beyond and void of time .

A small taste of eternity till the awakening of the phoenix, the golden dawn .

Need we wake up the sacred golden moment in dawn, stunned to silence

As he with practiced easy, gleaming with talent pull string for string ,David the bard with no equal

pulling his strings on the harp merging and pleasing to creation ,a secret set of chords he had

and with the chords his harp reflecting the goodness in his soul ,shunning the ghouls that haunted his king

singing:

Should we wake up naked the sacred hour of dawn to dance to the songs of our forefathers in the sacred garden of eden .

should we wake up at the rise, and from the setting to the dawn dwell in a land eons & eons long enstranged,

to be glad, rejoice and dance to the beats and chants of the drums as the psalm of the ancients is renewed ,

to move with the beat of the universe in its harmonious daze .

to remember the dances of old, performed around a bonfire in a thousand forgotten barbaric gestures .

Our tongue's as of fire we chant the song of languages .

bleeding it out of our deepest

holding none but letting go.

An Escape From You

Can I stop the sobs
Am I strong enough
To escape their evil
To deny what’s real

I ask myself why God would
Stick me in this jail, my own hell
So if I get help I might not feel
My own manic episodes, this is real

Am I bleeding
Am I seeing the truth
Or is it just a way
To deny my love for you

They say 
Just pop a pill
To numb 
All that can’t heal

Can I stop the sobs
Am I strong enough
To escape their evil
To deny what’s real

Is it delaying the problem
Is it sticking a bandage
On a broken arm
Am I covering the truth
Is it an escape from you

I have no idea
If it’s the right thing to do
But all I know is
I must forget you

So I’ll take this bitter pill
And I’ll conceal my inner hell 
Cause it’s all I can do
To stop loving  you

Come back to me (if you still love me)

Memories, i want to erase.
In my brain and they hurt me so.
Do away those days where my baby loved me.

Love, i want to forget.
In my heart it is causing me pain.
Do away one who is still so precious to me.

Rain drops falling all over me.
My baby sees no pride in me anymore.
I got to let her go so she can be glad.
I know this moment will hurt me so.
I searched but there is no means.
Wash away all that is in me.

Words does not help no more.
Feelings does not give assurance no more.
Actions does not promise hope no more.
So, my baby, if you want to go...i am still me.
Come back to me..

I will be loving you even when you are gone.
I will be crying my hearts out for our love.
My baby...if you can still accept me for who, what and where i am.
Come back to me...

I will still be who, what and where i am.
My baby, ...if you still love me.
Come back to me (if you still love me).

Ballad of the Bouncing Self

At times I, like a butterfly,
May flit from bloom to bloom,
Or with my whimsy set sky-high
To outer space may zoom.
And yet, when all’s been said and done,
I follow what my fate has spun—
For some may strive and ne’er succeed,
While others simply do the deed.

A Muse impels me on a spree
Of whirling swirling craft
Where poems must not mean but be…
Until I’m going daft.
But words, albeit finely wrought,
Can only catch a passing thought—
For some may strive and ne’er succeed,
While others simply do the deed.

When my reality looks pale
I frolic in a theme
From vivid myth, folklore or tale, 
Where dreams are what they seem.
And there where’er I romp and roam
I always feel a welcome home—
For some may strive and ne’er succeed,
While others simply do the deed.

I’ve often fallen to the ground
And picked myself back up.
I’ve hungered for a loving touch
And sipped from passion’s cup.
My longings, cravings ruled my will;
Still never could I drink my fill—
For some may strive and ne’er succeed,
While others simply do the deed.

A life led wrong, though full of song,
Will cause us to regret,
When pondering the winters long,
Our faults we can’t forget.
And then we’re washed in bitter tears
For senseless youth and wasted years—
As some may strive and ne’er succeed,
While others simply do the deed.

I said I want to live before
I die, in villanelle,
To learn where lies true wisdom’s door
And shun the gates to hell.
Yes, wayward ways can still begin
To seek and find the Way within—
For some may strive and not succeed,
While others simply do the deed.


– Harley White (July 4, 2014)

Discovery

Mr Wise Man, show me the way
I can't keep walking into walls all day

Quitting jobs wasn't easy but the reasons we're wrong
I felt like I was feeding King Kong
Left my life to help those that need it
Got mistreated, left, all to repeat it

The lessons are eternal they won't ever change,
That's your gift to me so that I won't be deranged.
So now that I have gotten better please give me my strength
My life is something that is losing it's length.

Mr Wise Man, show me the way
I can't keep walking into walls all day

Tolerance has always been my strongest feature,
Made me forget about every evil creature.
Test my limits all you want, I know it's vital
That is all a case of survival.

I don't know why I just keep trying
In the end I know I'll be dying.
My faith has been put to test
A test that will put me to rest

All the worlds I've been to
All the places I've gone through
Every single man woman and child
Every single one would make another mild

Stronger than the rest
This should make me the best
Or maybe it's best I don't know
Maybe it's best I just go

So Mr Wise Man, don't show me the way
I can't keep walking into walls all day

I'll walk my own path

FLOWERS ON A FRIDAY

It was bucking bulls and cowboy busting broncos
And the challenge that accompanied each ride
That consumed the heart and mind of my young cowboy
And this fact my Buddy never tried to hide. 
I recall the time we met in Kelly’s diner
He was busted up and feeling rather sore
But the cheque that paid the tab that I presented
Seemed to him to somehow even up the score.

He had eaten there that week and got acquainted,
And I somehow got to know this cowboy’s mind
while the flowers that he gave me on that Friday
Surely showed beside his toughness, he was kind.
We were married in the summer six months later,
On a Friday I recall so very well,
Because Fridays he would always buy me flowers
And then go and ride those bulls and broncs from hell.

Buddy always bought me flowers on a Friday
As he knew I feared the rides that lay ahead
But my man his heart and soul was in his riding 
And I loved this cowboy that I planned to wed. 
Yes he always bought me flowers on a Friday
And I loved this cowboy that I planned to wed.

All our friends had shared that special evening with us
And we raged and partied well into the night,
Then we slipped away to share the morning hours, 
Til the dawn rose and revealed its splendid light.
We both showered and had breakfast at the roadhouse
Laughed and shared the joy that comes with wedded bliss, 
But I sensed a certain tiredness in my Buddy
And I prayed he’d give the ride that day a miss.

Buddy drew the brindle bombshell riders hated
And that beast exploded when it left the chute,
Twisting left then right and suddenly it stumbled
And my Buddy he was crushed by that great brute.
When it came to say goodbye to my sweet lover
There was one thing that I vowed I’d always do 
I would always bring him flowers on a Friday
And I’d tell his child about his father too.
.
“Bud I’ll always bring you flowers on a Friday”
That’s the one thing that I vow I’ll always do.
Cause you always brought me flowers on a Friday
And your child will always bring you flowers too. 
Yes I’ll always bring you flowers on a Friday
And your child will always bring you flowers too.

I'm Ready For Love

Take me to the ocean with you.
Hold me, don't ever let go.
Give me your heart if you will.
I will give you my love.
Everytime we go..

'Cause you know, I'm ready for love.
And I know, I'm ready for you.
To love me, so love me today.
I will love you the same way too.

Let's take our time.
We'll view the ocean.
Scan the waves, then we'll see the shore.
These waves should carry.
All of our love.
All across the sea..

'Cause you know, I'm ready for love.
And I know, I'm ready for you.
To love love, so love me today.
I will love you, the same way too..

We'll kick some sand.
We'll wade in the water.
Live and love, let our lives be free.
Catch the waves that cross the water.
Share our love, through eternity..

'Cause you know, I'm ready for love.
And I know, I'm ready for you.
To love me, so love me today.
I will love you, the same way too..

I will love you, the same way too...

THE OTHER HOLDS BRANDY JUST A TASTE 

CHORUS

HE SAID HEY BRO YOUR NEW IN TOWN
ARE YOU LOOKING FOR A DATE
THESE GIRLS WILL SHOW YOU A REAL GOOD TIME
GO BACK TO YOUR ROOM AND WAIT

I LOOKED AT HIM AND THEN AT THEM
AND THEN I JUST SAID NO
MY WIFE IS WAITIN’ BACK AT THE RANCH
AND I REALLY GOT TO GO

As We Hurry Into The Taxi Park

As we hurry Into the Taxi park
The taxi earlier than us is under attack

As I perceive sound and voices
None is busy around and noises

The life that you will drive
Establishes the always providence you will derive

Worthless is life and annulled
Seems all annoyed

Associates in advance your travel
Teach you not only to marvel

But to scrutinize the symptom
And attest you've been to the classroom

I'm A Survivor

Twenty years went by.
I never saw you cry.
Never left your heart.
Never lost your love.
Never gave my life.
Tried to make you my wife.
I survived for your love.
I survived for your heart.
That's why I'm alive.
And I'm alright; because..

I'm a survivor.
I'm a survivor.
I'm a survivor.
I'm a survivor.

Now I know your name.
And I'm not too shy.
I never cry, when I'm by your side.
You make me feel OK.
You make me feel alright.
Warm me up inside.
'Cause you're my only love.
Your love holds the key.
That unlocks the door.
To my heart..
I'd sail to every shore.
Open every door.
And if the ship goes down.
I'd still be found; because..

I'm a survivor.
I'm a survivor.
I'm a survivor.
I'm a survivor.
I'm alive.
And I'm OK; because..

I'm a survivor.
I'm a survivor.
I'm a survivor.
I'm a survivor.

When you stare at me.
I feel your love.
Your love's got the grip.
That keeps a hold on me.
So I won't let go.
I'll never let it end.
I'll hold on tight.
Until the very end; because..

I'm a survivor.
I'm a survivor.
I'm a survivor.
I'm a survivor.
I'm alive.
And I'm alright; because..

I'm a survivor.
I'm a survivor.
I'm a survivor.
I'm a survivor.

Here In This Place



If Jesus walked through those doors today
Would you have a kind word to say?
Would you need more proof?
Would you be loving one another
Or judging your brother
In what you think to be the truth?

Well, Jesus is here in this place
I can see Him in your face
You are a temple in His Kingdom
He lives in all who believe.

If Jesus came and sat down by you
Would you be thinking what else you had to do?
Would you give Him place?
Would you be embarrassed to praise His name
Cry Holy and thank Him He came?
Would you know His face?

'We don't want to miss our blessin'
Lord, help us learn this lesson.
Open up our eyes and let us see.
Help us 'love one another'
Don't let us judge our brother
Before we talk about another
Set us free...
'Cause Jesus lives in all who believe'

Well, Jesus came through those doors today
He waits to hear what you have to say
In that neighbor next to you.
Will you choose to do the Father's will
Or sit in your seat very still
Knowing Jesus sits so close to you?

Now, Jesus is here in this place
Can you see Him in my face?
I am a temple in His Kingdom
And He lives in all who believe...
Yes, We are the Temple in His Kingdom
He lives in all who believe...

Jesus came through those doors today...

THE UNREALIZED DREAMS OF YESTERDAY

Dreamer, never give up on
the unrealized dreams of yesterday;
and with nothing but hope...
you can imagine them shine,
even brighter than the furthest star...
when your sky has no other light!
Dreamer, don't put them away;
see in strides:  a courageous heart!

Lay them out on the pathways...
where everyone can see them with a clear view;
dreams are lived out by those  
who are free to trust and love anyone of their choice...
to let emotions speak with an inner voice;
dreamer, you can have them, too!

You could think of a possibility,
and turn it into a certainty;
never passing up that chance...
to paint the unrealized dreams of yesterday
with lively colors that can only 
be found in a rainbow that delights all senses!

Aliveness comes form a surge of profound awareness...
that awakening to life may seem an illusion,
so dreamer realize the dreams of yesterday
with all thoughts and joys set on tomorrow, 
and let them swirl within and immensely grow...
by not letting others interfere with your happiness,
which is often threatened by another intrusion;
dreamer, hold them in your grasp...don't let them get away!

Love ain't




" Love ain't "
By Rodney Riggins


Wake up and she's leaving four
in the morning can't believe my eye's
where the **** is she going? shouldn't be
concern cos she made it quite clear I only 
have a few days and I'm outta here. Why 
must it be this way while I'm here she 
lost all respect and she really don't care
 
She don't love me but that's ok things will
work out some how some way I did my 
part but I'm only in the way I must move 
on cause It's hurting me to stay 

Love ain't easy love ain't sweet when
love goes wrong love can make you weak.
Love can be special love can be deep
love can make u suffer not wanting to
sleep.

You Came to Me Oh Lord

If what I feel is true
Don’t know how to explain
That my heart was heavy once
And didn’t know what to do

I was gloomy and darkness fell
 over me, all at once
I thought that I  was through
And was going straight to hell

Chorus

But then you came to me
And entered in my heart
And now that I am free
Promise with you to never part

I need you, Lord, to know
How desperate I did feel
Didn’t think that I would make it
And saw it all so real

The bad became the worse
And the worse became so real
And their teachings that I heard
Never happy would make me feel

Chorus

But then you came to me 
And entered in my heart
And now that I am free
Promise with you to never part

My heart became a stone
Didn’t know that I could feel
This LOVE that you give me
And my sins away you peeled

Now I’m grateful, Lord
And full of love I feel
Not only for you, God
But I feel I love the world

And most important, Lord
I feel I Love myself

Because

You came to me, Oh Lord
And entered in my heart
And now that I am free
Promise never from you to part

And become so lovingly
And stretch out my hand to thee

No matter what it is you feel
Prayer will set you free
So believe and faith will never fail
And let God’s love in you prevail

Woods, great place to hide from bullies

Beneath the soil lay our roots
Multi-legged insects walking on moss
Working hard to get the fruits
Like lost souls running to the cross
Or hungry new army recruits
With no care of profit or loss

We are the bugs
Commission on narcotic drugs
Watch as we steal the rain
Plants are ruining our brain

We feast together in the swamp
The spiders just want to push us around
They see us and want to stomp
We hide under the ground
I’m here, no fear of the chomp
It’s our other way around

We are the bugs
Commission on narcotic drugs
Watch as we steal the rain
Plants are ruining our brain

One day I hope it will change
The flower tell us one day
Not to far gone to rearrange
Apex of the sun’s way
Move to the balkan mountain range
Rather than be part of the buffet

We are the bugs
Commission on narcotic drugs
Watch as we steal the rain
Plants are ruining our brain

CI VEDIAMO A CAPRI ( WE'LL MEET AGAIN IN CAPRI )

From my northern city full of rain... 
I came to this splendid island of Capri,
and through the blue eyes of Emily,
that constantly remind me of that southern sky,
I saw the beautiful expression of a true smile,
a smile that drove this man insane!

" Ci vediamo a Capri, " 
she said to mer sadly...
trembling and trying not to cry; 
and though the April' breeze was  so warm,
she shivered...reaching for my  hand to hold!  
Oh, Emily that wasn't a goodbye!

O island so full of fragrant, pretty roses...
waiting for those passionate lovers:
I must depart from you with sadness,
hoping that tomorrow I will be back! 
Oh, sweet darling...oh, lovely Emily:
I won't be gone for long...from you and Capri! 

" Ci vediamo a Capri, " 
I told her with an emotion, so hurt and deep,
that brought me to tears...until I couldn't breath!
" Ci vediamo a Capri, " 
I said aloud as I caressed her face so soft and young,
a face that I would remember in my Neapolitan song!

" Ci vediamo a Capri," I shouted over the calm sea!
" Ci vediamo a Capri," was my promise to Emily!

INSPIRED BY SONGS OF SOLOMON

Let me pen my words with lyrics flowing
My words are better than vineyards growing
More tasty than your favorite meal
My words are as oil poured out…silky and surreal 

My divine father sculpture me 
Am inspired through Solomon songs lyrically
I am exalted and glad with thee
For thy blessings and your gift to me

Sit back, my fellow poets, my buddies and all humanity
Let wonderful poetry dictate the way you feel
Listen to inspiring words with a delicious flavor 
My style is unique and like no other

I am the keeper of chateau de Poetry
Charming words your soul loveth….read!
Feeding your conscious and subconscious everyday
Maketh your soul and spirit cast ponder away

Beautiful words flock your airy barnyards
A rich over flow… lyrically be glad!
O yeah! Am inspired by songs of Solomon
Shepherding my word’s serenading songs

King Solomon said, "Bring me a sword”
And I say “let my poetry be heard all over this world”
For I am poetically anointed by God!

ASHLEY HAD A SMALL GOAT

Ashley Had a Small Goat
Oh, Ashley had a Small goat,
Small goat, Small goat,
Ashley had a Small goat,
And he had a coat of white

He followed her to school one day,
School one day, school one day,
He followed her to school one day,
And drank a some water.

 Oh, once he ate a spinach can, 
Spinach can, spinach can, 
once he ate a spinach can, 
Also a line of clothes.

The clothes can do no harm inside, 
Harm inside, harm inside, 
the clothes can do no harm inside, 
But oh! The spinach can!

 The can was filled with achemical,
chemical , chemical chemical,
The can was filled with a chemical,
Which the goat  thought was food

He rubbed against poor Ashley's chin,
Ashley's chin, Ashley's chin,
He rubbed against poor Ashley's chin,
His deep distress to ease.

 
There was a flash of girl and goat,
Girl and goat, girl and goat
There was a flash of girl and goat
And they were seen no more..

(Slowly)
Ashley's soul to Heaven went,
Heaven went, Heaven went,
Ashley's soul to Heaven went,
And Mr. Goat went there too.

forever and always I love you

everyday I wake to your face
your soft skin set in a smile
you make my heart pound 
and my pulse race
and I blame you

you make my knees weak 
when you smile that smile
when stare at me like 
I'm a rare Jewel
and I blame you

my fingers tremble as they reach 
your arms pull me in
it's cold outside 
I snuggle close to your warmth
my knees shake harder
I blame you

Next time.....
No music plays
It's quiet and I read
eyes swollen from the fight we had
and from the tears that fell out of my eyes
I blame you

I think
and think

and remember
the time we kissed
the time we danced 
the times there was no music and we still danced 
the times when I was scared of the thunder 
and you held me

I remember
what I want to forget is Goodbye
But I don't think I can say it
My heart burns when I dare to 

I want to feel your arms
wrap around me 
and your voice whispering in my ear
your lips on mine
I blame you 

that my heart is broken
that it swells when I think of you
that my legs still shake and quiver when 
I find you on the street

tears spill from my eyes
I pick up the phone, 
my fingers lingering over the buttons
i can't dial 
want to
can't....
I miss you

My heart can't take it....
more tears
my sobs breaking the quiet
sobs broken by the phone

it's you
you say you're sorry
I smile just at your voice
I've missed it
You sound like you've been crying

we were always alike that way
You say another thing
I wait, wanting to hear,
but scared

you say....

you remember
the time we kissed
the time we danced 
the times there was no music and we still danced 
the times when I was scared of the thunder 
and you held me

you've missed me
we both laugh sadly
I say that 
I've missed you

we smile, 
we imagine it 

I love you....

but I don't say it out loud...
at least, not yet.

but, I love you
forever and always

forever and always

Small Town Big People

I look in the mirror and see the years gone
I can look beyond the glass out the window
To the yards of my childhood
I can smell the flowers and feel the grass ‘neath my feet. 
I can hear the music blasting on the radio
Mama callin’ me for supper.  


I yearn to go back to that danged town
I fought to get away and never look back,
I never wanted to live there again. 
I guess there’s a piece of me
There in that little town. 

The town is small and so are the events
You’re everyone’s business 
You can get a break and can’t get away
You don’t even have a say
You go to and from and people protest
And those same people will still put you to the test


I yearn to go back to that danged town
I fought to get away and never look back,
I never wanted to live there again. 
I guess there’s a piece of me
There in that little town. 

I made it to the big town K.C, 
Got myself a husband and a son and a place to live
Settled in and made a life, got a career
I swear I’ll never return to my best friend
Comfortable where I stand, 
Happy where I am 


I yearn to go back to that danged town
I fought to get away and never look back,
I never wanted to live there again. 
I guess there’s a piece of me
There in that little town. 

Well times are hard,
And people are ruthless in this cut throat time
Jobs are scarce and bills run high
You never know what you’ll hear at night
The people are small in this big town
Yeah people are small in this big town


I yearn to go back to that danged town
I fought to get away and never look back,
I never wanted to live there again. 
I guess there’s a piece of me
There in that little town. 

I guess the town is small
Just good ol’ boys and girls havin’ fun
Small place, small town, small world
People may talk and people may watch
But the biggest thing in that small town
Are the people after all. 


I yearn to go back to that danged town
I fought to get away and never look back,
I never wanted to live there again. 
I guess there’s a piece of me
There in that little town.

BEFORE IT RAINS

Taking hope out of a gloomy day
is like living without a hopeful heart;
and waiting for miracles without praying
is bringing on a specter of infidelity,
which disrupts my daily living...
making me ponder faith with distrust!

Before it rains, I hope for a rainbow at five...
believing that it will there for me to admire,
not merely imagining, but envisioning its beauty;
what is hidden from the eyes shouldn't be a mystery,
and this Humankind has created myths and legends
for the ones lacking the sixth sense!

Embarking on that journey of incognito,
solely relying on this overburdensome ego,
causes me to experience inquietude
in a most unfovarable latitude;
and freedom is confined in short miles,
when my ship comes to an halt for guidance!

Before it rains, I'll see myself securing the anchor,
and step on the pier of the safest harbor...
waving at the fading rainbow over the refulgent horizon;
taking pride and remembering the grueling fright
of a captain who never displayed a doubt...
even when the storm dashed the agitated ocean!

The Whiskey Ballet

Once in a while when we fall down
Rarely ever is there anybody else around
To take all of our sorrows and misery away
We seem to suffer to our dying day
A maelstrom of voices swirl through our heads
A bunch of mixed up words from what people said
Saying that this is what life is about
But this ain't what I want and that I don't doubt
I'm drowning the bad thoughts deep in my brain
I'm gonna slam a 60-pound and flush my mind away
I'll wake up in a ditch or in my bloody grave
The ballad of the whiskey ballet
It's cheaper for a bottle than a stinkin' bar
Where all the blasted bastards and the ditchpigs are
I like to drink alone with no one else around
I drink all I want on my own slammin' ground
I don't need someone telling me that I'm being too damned loud
I don't need anyone treating me like a drunk and foolish clown
I'll just turn around and belch into whomevers face and
waltz away on my own cloud by my own staggering pace
I'll be belching and mumbling,kicking and stumbling
puking and yelling,going to Hell andfighting and bleeding
The world will take heed and crashing and crawling
to the ballad of the whiskey ballet!!

Abandoned Homestead

I gave you shelter from the storm,
When it was cold I kept you warm,
From blazing sun I shade your day,
Stopped the wind from blowing you away.

I gave you comfort in the night,
Watched over you while you lay sleeping,
Through my windows shone the moonlight,
Became the mulga perfumes keeping.

Now I'm not wanted any more,
Dust builds up around my door,
There are no footsteps on my floor,
I'm not wanted anymore.

I'm not wanted anymore,
No one can hear me crying,
No one comes here anymore,
I'm not wanted anymore.

Pots and pans hung from my wall,
I loved your paintings in my hall,
Departed souls I helped you mourn,
I watched your babies being born,
Now there's no children running 'round,
I miss the smell of quandong jam,
Please come back I am your home,
It hurts so much to be alone.

Now I'm not wanted any more,
Dust builds up around my door,
There are no footsteps on my floor,
I'm not wanted anymore.

Drinkin Buddies

Pour a shot for me, pour a shot for you.
Swallow down, so quick is the liqueur.
You recoil in pleasure, it tastes good.
Set it up again, time to put up another two.

You think about forgetting the pain,
But your just making it all worse.
Slowly, slowly the picture gets dizzier,
Good judgement goes down the drain.

You love the crown, and he does his job,
Making you feel heavy then ultra light.
Words mind as well be backwards,
And all your thoughts, so many, he did rob.

You look at each other, sloppily thinking,
And you remember what you did forget.
Unsure if the other is feeling the same way.
Look away, wondering, both keep drinking.

F- it! You slow melt into the way it was.
Sooo goooood, but oh soooo baaaaadddd!
The restraint clock is over, time to give in,
You're already too far, no stop, no pause.

Tricky is the soundtrack, intense is the play.
Between are you two, crazy is this game.
Long, amazing, wishing it could last forever,
But you doubt it, you wake sober the next day. 

Was so much fun, and it was much shattering.
Again, you are so weak, you shake your head.
Your foolishness, your eyes drawn asunder.
But so much more then one night of smattering. 

You part, intense attraction you have to ignore,
But so comfortable and also so careless.
You try not look over you shoulder at the other.
Never again... Hell, till they put up two more.

The dustbowl troubadour

My tribute to Woody Guthrie.

The dust bowl troubadour.

Once when I was just a stud
I loved the folky crowd
I would listen well to Bob Dylan
[I immersed him in a shroud]
Then Donovan, and Joanie Baez
I loved them and their ways
Through Them I found my legend ‘Woody’
Oh, these were happy days.

Old Woody he inspired them all
All the folkies of that time
And me, I just adored the man
His rhythm and his rhyme
I love the things he sang about
That Dust bowl troubadour
Two thousand songs they say he wrote
Me-thinks it might be more.

As Woody rode those railways lines
He would fruit pick and he’d sing
He always carried his old guitar
As to poor folk he would bring
Sweet laughter and much happiness
For those his heart did touch
And all those dust bowl refugees
They loved this man so much

JOY BELLS RING IN GLORY

A tender child is sleeping in a warm manger
watched by a sweet,happy mother;
joy bells ring in glory,
in the blue Heavens
shines a yellow star!
This night is too cold for the sheperds
watching their sheeps over the hills of Bethlem;
the Angel of the Lord will surprise them:
as they'll tell them,"The King has come!"
That star will lead them,
and they will find the little King...there;
kept warm by the breath of his mother Mary!

Joy bells ring in glory;
the Wise Men are coming from the East,
to bring Him the precious gifts of destiny...
to worship that humble child
sent from a caring God:
to show the hearts of men His love at last!

a new york warmth

On and on  I don’t wanna go home
Just the lovely words of another sad song
Holding on, it’s too late to go home
Just the lonely words of another sad song

Every now and then
I don’t wanna turn left 
Just the path I martyr 
On the way to no where
Could you envision me 
No longer sadly
These are the lovely words 

As we go
On and on  I don’t wanna go home
Just the lovely words of another sad song
And we sing
Holding on, it’s too late to go home
Just the lonely words of another sad song

Back and forth 
Are the trials we cure
Would you hold me more
If you found me impure 
And we’re holding on 
Cause it’s too late to go home

As we go
On and on  I don’t wanna go home
Just the lovely words of another sad song
And we sing
Holding on, it’s too late to go home
Just the lonely words of another sad song

On the park side of town
Silence is a muffled sound
No apologies
Like sea gulls 
We are standing free
We’re holding on 
Cause there’s no better place to be

So let it snow
Go here, there, and before
She asked me to leave 
I kindly closed the door
Theses are the times 
We wish not to endure
We look for warm meals
Band aids
A sore throat to absorb the cure
Lungs commenced to whispers 
Profoundly within your ear 
A little something
To keep your thoughts pure
I could ask for no more
Than sun lit days 
That hover above the clouds 
And shadow 
The doubts we adore

I AWAKEN WITH THE NEW SUNRISE

As the dreary night slowly vanishes,
taking along the weary stars,
but the wakeful moon decides to stay...
I awaken with the new sunrise
admiring the glimmering sea
with colors resembling diamonds!

I breathlessly wonder
why God has created it
with a painter's hand,
and giving us that joy...
a devine joy as a reminder: 
that all He has made is entirely His;
and in the same manner
we care for our bodies 
with much preoccupation,
we must take care of all creation,
so that our children 
can enjoy it indefinitely!

Among fields of jacandra and dandelions swaying,
I awaken with the new sunrise in sheer delight...
to face life as it was when nobody was there;
and we can imagine the thought running
through God's mind to put a human being there:
to watch and control the beautiful earth!

I awaken with the new sunrise,
to discover a small bird soaring...
going further and further up until
he has picked up the speed of an eagle;
I awaken with the new sunrise...rejoicing, 
opening up my spirit to a song of praise!

If I'm still living, I owe it to my Lord,
and there aren't days I don't proclaim His  word...
when I awaken with the new sunrise,
and I gladly watch the golden sun radiantly rise!

The Rich Get Richer the Poor Get Poorer

They know all the loop holes for the IRS 
Elaborate parties, tuxedoes and women in their 5,000 dollar dresses 
A cardboard box, another statistic for the homeless 
A corporate exec did a downsize today 
The car repossessed, the house taken away 
Sometimes reality is a person's real life movie of horror 
The rich get richer, the poor get poorer 
Some have never known to go to sleep without a meal 
Our government turns a blind eye does not want to see what's real 
America's rich worried about the homeless overseas 
The poor get spitted in their faces by those wealthy celebrities 
A billionaire wouldn't even foot the taxes for the cars she gave away 
Never forget where you came from, you may have to return there someday 
All the rich have a gold key  to the IRS's back door 
They know all the loop holes for the IRS 
Elaborate parties, tuxedoes and women in their 5,000 dollar dresses 
A cardboard box, another statistic for the homeless 
A corporate exec did a downsize today 
The car repossessed, the house taken away 
Sometimes reality is a person's real life movie of horror 
The rich get richer, the poor get poorer 
Some have never known to go to sleep without a meal 
Our government turns a blind eye does not want to see what's real 
America's rich worried about the homeless overseas

7 years of a decade

It was my first day of summer school
I dipped out and said "i don't know how to lose"
Time passed fast
And i'm quite sure i failed to last
So welcome back to the one-way road

The summer i met Vicki Marie
told me if there's one thing she'd change
It'd be my way of thinking
Living so carefree
I can't turn back or keep from sinking

Brandon played and ripped that guitar
Madison said we wouldn't get far
Everyone else said "you don't know who you are"
Taking shots down at the local bar
The riots outside the Dejavu
Holly's telling me "I miss you too"

said you were my brother
We'd be friends forever
I can't tell you howmany times 
I think back on those days

But i wouldn't change a thing
I would've fought a little harder
Two for one at the local pub
I don't wanna die a martyr
when things fall apart
you got to try a little harder

If i could go back i wouldn't change a thing
Even if it wasn't meant to be
She said, "hey dude
you guys are living so carefree
I too, want to have the time of my life"

What My Fate Says

I tried to control what is mine
i tried searching for answers hidden from me
but i cannot seem to find out why
why my fate is more cruel than what i see

i held sins that are unforgivable
i held marks and scars of my evil past
but God is of all Merciful
why am i not able to live normally, i would ask

cant be loved, would not be able to love
that is what my fate says
my heart bears the pain every night
to see that every moment i cant have each day

so what am i supposed to do 
my life feels different from everyone else
i cannot feel love or gain love
an emotion i feel most and now it is hell

so what am i supposed to do
when all my desire for someone
is just hollow inside

what am i supposed to feel
when i am not allowed to have love
once it is bind..

no freedom to live what you want
that is what my fate says

and there goes my life...

Rosaline

Moonlight shines down on my cold, pale face I am alone, her raven calling, I am disgrace Falling as the willows weep, I hold her in my arms as she struggles to breathe Rosaline, my one love divine. You are sacred You are mine Her voice rising above the water Beautiful Rosaline sang silently to me The whispers trailing off her fingers, as she faded into the darkness My beautiful angel has vanished again Goodbye my Beautiful Rosaline. Happened that Grim reckless day when the shadows began to play Beauty detonated in my trust No more, no more will there ever be a witch so grand, as to bring back my Beloved Rosaline Sorrow cuts it's way into my heart It is the locked key, the one you keep Her voice rising above the water Beautiful Rosaline sang silently to me The whispers trailing off her fingers, as she faded into the darkness My beautiful angel has vanished again Goodbye my Beautiful Rosaline So leaving this Tragic scene I vanished from Rosaline's sight Nevermore will there ever be a witch so grand, as to bring back my Beloved Rosaline Her voice rising above the water Beautiful Rosaline sang silently to me The whispers trailing off her fingers, as she faded into the darkness My beautiful angel has vanished again Goodbye my Beautiful Rosaline. Enchanting she sang to me, in the everlasting light of peace My beautiful siren walks again Goodnight my Beautiful Rosaline

Miss Mayhem

Nymphomania Is all she can grant you along with a well spent night This femme fatale isn't something A man can't handle A sex-fiend straight from the chamber of Satan A desire so strong It won't ever feel wrong A mistress of melancholy She took over my soul The amphetamine addiction Of her deadly embrace Her sweet poisonous grace Her heroin laced lips Oh how her venom drips All beware of a sensual destruction The comely fatal femme This sexual gem Stay away from miss mayhem Disaster is what she is A taste of her could make you leave All other vices and loves Would you ever think of the price For an eternity you'll be condemne dEven just for one night with miss mayhem This vamp of pain all life she will drain, this is addicting whore Is all you will adore Exciting and erotic Using all fetishes against your soul Your wife will surely lament From this dreadful strife A mistress of melancholy She took over my soul The amphetamine addiction Of her deadly embrace Her sweet poisonous grace Her heroin laced lips Oh how her venom drips All beware of a sensual destruction The comely fatal femme This sexual gem Stay away from miss mayhem A plague of pleasure The flead rats couldn't even measure Against the scourge of men A mistress of melancholy She took over my soul The amphetamine addiction Of her deadly embrace Her sweet poisonous grace Her heroin laced lips Oh how her venom drips All beware of a sensual destruction The comely fatal femme This sexual gem Stay away from miss mayhem

The Pretty Gouldian

In the evening they’re not storm clouds that are swirling left and right,
They are the residents coming down to drink,
Every colour you can think of, would then seek their roosting sight,  
But today it’s sad we’ve seen their numbers shrink. 

They would rise up in the Kimberley from heads of seeding grass,
Making rainbows out of trees, but then man
Trapped and poisoned thousands, around the waterholes.
Today a traveller rarely gets to see…the pretty Gouldian.
 
The speckled clouds are gone forever, the evening skies are clear, 
They’re something we shall never see again,
A farmer’s needs are quite important; we must change the structure here,
So we must lose the pretty Gouldian.

And today if you are lucky touring through the northern dry,
When you’ve pulled up to be closer to the land,
By walking through the dead grass you might hear a plaintive cry,  
Where there may be a pair of Gouldian.

The old man stands erect with his head bowed as he trills,
To his lady who he seeks the answer, yes,  
They both seek a hollow where they test their breeding skills,
Feeding iridescent nodules, in pinfeather dress.  

If it wasn’t for the passion of the breeders overseas,
When the Gouldian has vanished from this land,
Now we must leave Australia, Mitchell Grass and bottle trees,
To see the Gouldian in millions in Japan.

The speckled clouds are gone forever, the evening skies are clear, 
They’re something we shall never see again,
A farmer’s needs are quite important, we must change the structure here,
So we must lose the pretty Gouldian.

The speckled clouds are gone forever,
It’s something we shall never see again,
A farmer’s needs are quite important,
So we must lose the pretty Gouldian.

THIS BIG OLD WOMEN

I WOKE UP THIS MORNING, LOOK ACROSS MY BED.
THERE WAS THIS BIG OLD WOMEN,LYING THERE IN MY BED.
SHE PUT HER ARMS AROUND ME,GAVE ME A HUG.
I FELT LIKE I WAS BEING SQUASHED LIKE A BUG.

I WENT OUT ON THE TOWN,DID ME SOME DRINKING.
I BROUGHT HER HOME,NOW WHAT WAS I THINKING?
I DONT KNOW WHAT I DONE,OR WHAT I SAID
TO HAVE THIS BIG OLD WOMEN HERE LYING IN MY BED.

LORD,LORD HAVE MERCY ON ME.
STOP MY DRINKING,SET ME FREE.
IF I DONT STOP MY DRINKING,
THIS BIG OLD WOMEN IS GOING TO BE THE DEATH OF ME

LORD, USE ME

Lord, use me
to accomplish your purpose,
and make a sower out of me...
to multiply these scattered seeds;
miracles come in many forms:
in blessings of prosperity!
What I gave was all I had,
and what I will receive
will be more
than abundance!     

Defying danger and changelling death, 
I walked straight into the wilderness,
but nothing scared me in my pursue; 
afraid of  turning the pages of the Bible
and not feeling sympathy for myself,
I ventured all and got lost...
my innocence turned into lust,
which gave me pleasure without any rule!

Lord, use me 
to drive many away from foolishness, 
and as You forgave me of my impurities...
they will see Your mercy
as clear as morning;
and reject sin as a hateful thing!   
Lord, use me     
to declare the freedom that came with change,
and anyone can be part of it...regardless of age;
Lord, use me and let me love in humility!

same problem

So we are over i cant lie anymore
to myself
so now forever no love anymore
i wonder the streets trying to get home tonight
heart shatered with no hope at all

i know now that you were all that i loved
it strange how careless love is
I stand on a vortex my ending is craving
not one in oblivion for you

new day same problem tired and alone
endavours all failures 
keep turning away
if this is my madness im reeling just screaming
a vision of sadness alone

THE DREAMER WHO FOLLOWS THE STARS

Sitting on a smooth rock
as waves crash into it...foaming,
and splashing their salty water on me;
it is warm and soothing after burning
on dunes of sand...listening to rock,
and one of the songs caught my fancy...

The dreamer who follows the stars
is an unloved soul running from time,    
searching for secrets in this Universe...
but finding only sympathy for himself;
he can see the sea-birds in flight,
and wishes more peace at every sunset!  

This pen dashes all thoughts off,
to relieve this mind of unwanted clutter,
clearly seeing beyond the noiseless shore;
and like survivors of a shipwreck:
I let out a deep breath, to feel life 
at its best ,and joyfully play my clarinet...

The dreamer who follows the stars
 loses their traces into space,
they go further and further and disappear from his sight;
he counted them all when they stood still and shone
above the ragged canyons of a dreary moon in silverlight, 
and how can he hope for their return and not dream alone?  

Fugitive darkness gives away to dazzling sun-rays,
the shrills of the gathered sea-gulls, by the beach-house,
bring me back to an existence of joyful laughs; 
I am repulsively sad to have fallen into sleep,
to have missed moments that could have inspired, indeed,
another song for the dreamer who followed the stars!

you got to get outside

do you see the dove in flight
merging into blinding light
if you dont well that's allright,--as long as you know it's there.
do you feel the midday breeze
giving summer sun releif
lifts you up from of your knee's,

you got to get outside.

roll me off the steepiest cliff
watch in wonder as i live
ask for some of what i give,--ther's plenty enough for two.
spin me in your hurricane
land me onto baron plain's
i shall come back less restrained.

you got to get outside.

pass me as your animal caged
shout that i am all the rage
print me onto your front page,---you got to stay outside.
put me in a higher class
of servile knight's and aristocrat's
let me show you why they're crass.

they carn't come outside.

put me on your right hand side
in a ditch of paracite's
start to read me my last right's,--will no-one come outside.
blame me for your timely fall
never answer when i call
kneel me blind against a wall.

all is mine outside.

track me down and wish me well
speak to me more your hard sell
take my wishes out the well,--the story's half way told.
i could regail for far too long
put right with pen all my wrong's
sing the same old sorry song's.

LEARN HOW TO FIGHT YOUR BLUES

Write yourself the silliest song...
when everything seems dark and dull,
and all that can be changed for all; 
write and just sing along!

Learn how to fight your blues
with the quickest remedy:  think of sunshine,
never of rain;  dream of rainbows 
over the distant horizon!
For every sad mood that lingerd for too long, 
there's a world of surprises waiting in your song!

Most people think  that loving themselves
is enough to complete their mission in life,
but I tell you otherwise:  love others
more than you love yourself,
and you'll be rewarded in due time:
look at the lives of those great givers! 

Learn how to fight your blues,
and there's no way you can lose;
if everything were easy, nobody would complain...
going up-hill is too tough for the weak,
gather your strength and be the first to reap
whatever you deserved and wasn't given!

Write yourself the happiest song,
look up and merrily sing along!

If life was but a dream

If life is but a dream
the clouds would be whipped like cream
children would never scream
and suffering would not be

If life was but a dream
the people would all sing
julia roberts would be my queen
and true love forever be
but life is not a dream

the willows they would dance
as the wind warms up the band
we would take each others hand
writing day dreams in the sand
tell me how our hearts will never break
and the the world wont ever shake
if life was just a dream

My Best Friends

They are the ones that I met
They are the ones that I have found
They are still here and I am Glad
Because I would never want to go down

They are the laughters and smiles
They are the sky and the sun
They are the ocean and wind
They are the only ones

They are my best Friends
They are the people who I hang on to
They are my best Friends
We are not just some bunch of Fools

Susan is feminine but she's the daisies in spring
Her eyes sparkled and she is strong in what she thinks

Mat is a flirt but he is the joker of the group
He never likes girls to treat him some kind of a fool

Susan loves fashion designs and talks like any other girl
Mat loves himself to flirt with the girls around the world

And I dont care for what they are
And I am just glad that these are the people that made me come this far
And I would not make a mistake in pulling ourselves apart
We will keep ourselves in daylight when we beginning to feel the dark

And I love them more than everyone can see
They feel like they are more than just a family

Because they are all i have in me

All I Have in me..

JACK DANIALS I CRY

IF I was a monkey,lived in the zoo.
I swing from the vine,that what I would do.
But IM not a monkey,dont live in the zoo.
So I will drink my JACK DANIALS,give a toast to you.

If the ocean was whiskey,and I was a duck.
I swim to the bottom and never come up.
But the ocean not whiskey,and IM not a duck.
So I will play TEXES HOLDEM,and drink to my luck.

JACK DANIANLS,JACK DANIALS,I cry.
If a car dont roll over me,I will live till I die
If I die meet ST. PETER,at the gate.
If IM drinking my JACK DANIALS,he will have to wait.

JACK DANIALS,JACK DANIALS,cream of the crop.
IM going to drink my JACK DANIALS ,until the day that I drop
When I drop,fall flat on the floor.
IM going to pick my self up,and drink me some more.

your smile

i see sunsets and fields in the open
and your image set up in the stars
i cant fight the tears that are coming
just long for the touch of your hand

now i know what was said has been said
and that weve gone our own separate ways
but you soul touches mine in the heavens
lust want you to hold me tonight


so our dance lasts from dusk till the new dawn
then we part and again im alone
i dwell of you and our lifetime back then
till tonight when i see you again

then by chance in a crowd i see you
with a vail of shade brought on from the light
like an old seen from an old movie
your smile seems to bring me to life

yea your smile seems to bring me to life

Takes me to that special place
Right where I want to be
With just you and me
You bring joy to my life
And I'm proud to be your wife
To find in you
All the magic inside of you
You are my kind
It was you I had to find
There is no end to our time
Only with you

prisms

this faction of innocence of will
self destructing itself within
with a jagged brittle pill
a snowflake as simple as can be
embeds itself within the darkness 
crying out my name

surender my soul unto your heart
but we are so many miles apart 
could i never hold our hand
conundrum of prisms in the light
is a jail for my emotions
i cant see myself tonight

ever gentle my feelings are for you
locked up in this dungeon
far away from you
i wonder do you ever  feel the same
imprisioned inside your mind 
do you ever feel the pain

a snowflake as simple as can be
embeds itself within the darkness 
crying out my name

Morbid Irony

While I lay here
Staring my fate
Square into obscurity
Left with nothing but promises
Of forgotten grandeur

Leaving behind epic depths
Of visions
Illusions
Confusions, beyond credibility

A string of events one could not forsee
Refusal to uphold unrealistic
And idealistic states of abstraction

Thus bringing us lucid and coherent
Understandings of the truth
Perhaps revealing consummate contentment
No more resentments
Of past discontentment
These vast extents of torments
Preventing  one from ascending
Into unending bliss
Where the unmerciful bind you
Overextending
Subdued

My All

I am striving for you
In my valentine's solitude tonight
It is wrong to love you
No, my heart just won't let me rewrite
I've drowned you in my soul
And I won't let go without you 
Valentine
I'd give my all to have
To spend my life with you
I'd risk my voice to feel
Your body next to mine
No, I can't go on
Living with these fantasies inside
I'd give my all for your love

In Debt Blues

My cheap wine is the only thing I buy 
I'm so broke I can't afford to cry 
I'm so deep in debt, such a long way to get out 
The in debt blues is what I'm singing about 
I work for the man, I'm as poor as can be 
I have no chair, no couch or tv 
You can never win, if you always lose 
I've got them bad, the in debt blues 
Debt relief says give them a call 
I'm so stressed I light my last Pall Mall 
I need help, so many bills, I'm so confused 
Someone please help me get rid of those in debt blues 
Cabinets are empty, not a crumb in the house 
Slim pickens for all, including a mouse 
Cabbage water to drink, cabbage to eat 
I can't recall the last time I tasted meat 
No socks and worn out shoes 
I just can't seem to walk away from those in debt blues 
Bill collectors calling me each and every day 
You have to face up to your issues, can't just run away 
now I'm reaching out, hope it's not too late 
I pray I haven't sealed my own fate 
I ask what is a broke and poorly educated man to do 
Let me cleanse myself and wash away these in debt blues

Blindsided

She said that she would always love him
As she was walking out the front door
He knew what she was really saying 
I don't want to see you anymore. 

He wondered where it had gone so wrong
And how he had missed the warning signs 
To him, love was something you ran to. 
He guessed her love was a different kind. 

He still adores the ground she walked on
But it looks like that was not enough
He knew that she had made up her mind. 
And this wasn't some commitment bluff. 

Now he sleeps on her side of the bed
Her teacup is still in the kitchen. 
He rushes for the phone when it rings
Says a prayer, holds his breath, and listens. 

He dialed her number quite a few times. 
Even talked to the answering machine
But now he feels like an intruder
Butting in on another man' dream.

the steps of boardwalk city

People are like cities
They’re beautiful at first
Cities are like people
They hold on to the worst
People are you and I 
We mirror most of the hurt

I don’t believe in quarters 
Pleasing wishing wells or 
That waterfalls’ never break flow
Children of ruins and run
With no place to go

I miss the things 
That I have forgotten
I can honestly say the most 
For the people who were brought to me 

And you should know
Bed time stories were nothing more than lies
And now you know
Why beggars and grown men with no homes 
Have the best stories to tell

People are like cities
They’re left in ruins 
Cities are like people 
They’re broken in places
I can honestly say the most 
For the people who were brought to me 

Catherine’s in tears 
But she lust for bachelors and ball room curtains
Rebecca moans 
But there no rose petals in this empty city 
Her mirror smiles and tells her she’s un-pretty
Sons of train stops
Children of rain drops 
Orphans of this boardwalk city
Words cannot heal your wounds 
But if helps your more than lovely

DREAMING

DREAMING


When I was walking down the hall I felt a pain that hurt me
poignantly but it was not really there

When I was walking up the stairs I met a man who was not there
and he was not there again to day- oh how I wish he'd fade away!

When I was at the table alone I spoke with a lady who was dressed
in grass and cotton but she was not there and maybe I was not either

There just is not a way to know when we are dreaming is there?
Nevertheless dreams do come true some times

Traveller

Traveller I was 
Long before last time;
Once again I become
A traveller! 
A traveller I am 
Sailing in search
Of my second-half
Across oceans and seas
From coast to coast
Along cold dawn
Beneath scorching sun
At noon,
And the warm evening.
I have travelled
With blanket of sorrow,
Jacket of joy
Enshrined in my heart's
Pouch,
Like a hunch back.
Only in search
Of my beloved!

A FORBIDDEN THOUGHT

Unconvincing words
is what I hear...
and need, not want
keeps bursting out
of your pathetic thoughts;
all is gone so sore!

A fobidden thought,
not spoken for your own sake,
what you hide is plain and clear;
when that voice starts shaking,
and those eyes start rolling:
I lose faith in everything you say,
look at me, and be as true as yesterday!
Have I ever kept a secret, or been insincere?
Sympathy wouldn't be in me today,
unless you revealed that forbidden thought!

Secrets can cause doubts,
enought to destroy trust and confidence;
are you still hanging on pretense?
Go beyond the storm and foresee
things that can't  ever been seen;
put it all to rest ...it's your last chance!    

A forbidden thought 
locked inside so shamefully
is another reason to fear truth;
being so untrue and silent
doesn't make easier for me
to forgive you like I would like toI 
A forbidden thought
lingering on unspoken lips
makes me sad and wonder why
it seems hard to face
the consequence of a lie...
when all you have to do is apologize!

A forbdden thought so unspoken,
never sheds light on anything too foregone;
something lost to time that only  love can
bring back from its deep darkness!
A forbidden thought follows a gloomy dawn,
afraid that the silence will find a voice!

PRETTY IS TOO INCREDIBLE

I remember seeing you walking downtown,
flashing such a revealing smile in early fall;
and I,attracted by your charm,
could not resist you at all..
because pretty is too incredible
to describe you and not to pray for a miracle!

I've walked in this noisy piano bar...
unawarely of you being there,
and he's touching you with his jealous hands,
giving me such unpleasant glances;
oh, he's making you the center
of his attention...noticing how I stare!

Pretty is too incredible to describe you otherwise,
'cause you deserve a guy who has a sweet voice,
and runs his fingers on your quivering skin so fair:
to make you feel sensations you never felt before...
turning you into a more passionate woman,
who desires the touch of a real man!

I wish you were really free,
so you'd be part of my wonderful destiny;
and with these emotions exploding inside,
there's no hope for me go wild...
having you on those nights, filled with bliss,
until you are in a flood of warm kisses!

Pretty is too incredible to describe you,
and that thought can't keep me apart
from your sad eyes that speak of hurt;
dream of me and I'll dream of you...
let's make believe we are this close,
and that an impossible love we never choose!

The Eve of Truth

I’m lost..
Lost in a world I’ve never been shown.
By a man with feelings yet unknown.
My heart blown up with love.
Falling in this life I’ve only dreamed of.

He is a man..  
A man that has ruined all other men for me.
I know this is the life for me to be.
Filled with fear that his love has passed.
But for now, here I am, in this spell he has cast.


In Strength I’d move on
But I want to be here forever
I just don’t want this to end here
I really need to know where my fate lies.

Now here I am..
I am desperately waiting for my answer.
The ache destroying my willpower.
The need to save all of my strength for a let down.
I just want the pain to stop spinning around.

Is this the end..
The end of this happy chapter in my life?
Was it worth all of the confusion and strife?
To this I say yes and declare complete satisfaction.
In the memory and my life’s new plan of action.


In wisdom I move on.
I know life is one big endeavor.
I think this moment has ended dear.
I have learned more of the art of goodbyes.

AS INHUMAN AS A MAN'S HEART SEEMS

As inhuman as a man's heart seems...
hidden inside is a tender side:
a beautiful side seldom seen by others;
and that fear of being sensitive
is a real hurdle for those men sworn in pride,
but manly qualities are judged by his deeds...
 
A woman's perception of the common man is that
he is lives in an unintentional masquerede,
to hide the sweetness he won't manifest;
and this unconformity won't let his beauty 
 be capturated by intense emotions of masculinity...
will he break the myth and be appreciated?

I have struggled with it indefinitely
and embraced this stereotype unsympathetically,
why are we supposed to be so uncaring and invulnerable,
and outgrow our own resistance and be so invincible;
have we realized that disharmony,
indignation and frustration are not truly noble?

As inhuman as a man's heart seems,
many sacrifice love for an unexplanable cause...
putting vanity before human compassion:
without guilt, regard and trepidation;
have we become so stubbornly persistent...
to lose all self-direction and prospective?

Lacey

**Lacey Mosely of Flyleaf** You can't turn back the hands of time. You can't give up because you feel so alone, so abandoned, so useless, without a purpose in life. He gave His life for you to live yours. The troubled spirit haunting you silently lingers. Lacey screams, her voice breaking free. Forgive me, forgive me. The truth echoing through, forever in the light I will serve you. Lacey sings, her voice eternally broken free. I believe, I believe. You found your path. You know that you cannot change the past. Broken within, you have found the courage to begin again. Breathing as each day goes by, you now know that you always had a purpose in this life. You smile to yourself, and know that it is real. Awakened you find the strength to heal. Lacey screams, her voice breaking free. Forgive me, forgive me. The truth echoing through, forever in the light I will serve you. Lacey sings, her voice eternally broken free. I believe, I believe. Tonight she knows that she is free. Lacey found the light. Inside she screams. Forgive me. I believe, I believe. Lacey screams, her voice breaking free. Forgive me, forgive me. The truth echoing through, forever in the light I will serve you. Lacey sings, her voice eternally broken free. I believe, I believe. Lacey sings, her voice eternally broken free. Jesus Christ, saved me. I believe, I believe.

I TRUST, YOU'LL REMAIN FAITHFUL TO ME...

The warm spring rain is a steady downpour 
 on this foggy eight- wheeler
parked by a dark highway seen from nowhere, 
as I hold and softly caress
your glowing photograph in my hands;
this wish seems impossible,
and imagining you next to me...
brings me closer to reality!

I trust, you'll remain faithful to me...
and mark down another empty day,
making you restless and insecure;
all in all, I am the same man you adored!

My feet trudge into the deep sand...    
making me wish that there was more
to life than this useless sorrow;
I have loved you and been proud of it,
and I hope to make you the happiest...
when all this comes to an end! 

I trust, you'll remain faithful to me...
as I am faithful to you to this day;
to give up everything we gave and felt...
would be none other than foolishness!

The spring rain has stopped coming down,
a patch of blue is seen though the bright clouds;
at least, my hope isn't completly gone...
that's  a good sign for a guy who only wished once!

All of this I can't just say,
My darkened bed is where I lay.
I lived my life without a care,
A place to hide please take me there.
My emotions paint the walls with darkened splatters,
And nothing else matters.

I want to run away never looking back,
Prove all the people wrong talking smack.
But I can't bare to witness this any longer.
Take me to a new home.
I can't find it to care,
A place to hide please take me there.
My emotions paint the walls with darkened splatters,
And nothing else matters.

Cast Your Bread on the Waters

Cast your bread on the waters
After many days you'll find it again
Of this be sure sons and daughters
No matter how many starless nights there've been

Cast your bread on the waters
And after many days you'll find it again
Coming down from your Father
Of heavenly lights who knows just how, where and when  (chorus)

As a high wind blew in the morning
He went out in tears sowing seed 
And his hands were not idle in the evening
With hopes that they both would succeed

In time the clouds became dark and gray
And the trees began shaking their leaves
But he reaped the fields with songs of joy
And returned carrying in his sheaves

(Chorus)

Before gathering the sheaves into barns
He gave all the firstfruits to God
Then loading up a seafaring vessel
He prayerfully shipped the harvest abroad

Expecting to receive a good return
He waited patiently night and day
But when the great increase finally arrived
It came sailing in from another way

{Bridge}
For He who supplied seed for the sower
And bread for food will multiply
The seed you have sown and will increase
The righteous fruit of your enriched supply

(Chorus)

I Long For Yesterday

Yesterday all my troubles seemed so far away,
Now it looks as though they're here to stay.
I can't find light to brighten up my days,
I guess I'll just fall astray.
Suddenly I'm not all the man I used to be,
There's an evil shadow inside of me.
I can't seem to set all the problems free,
I guess my only option is turn back and flee.
Although I sit here and have this guilt,
I'm burning down the good I ever built.
The good times were an easy game to play,
I'm searching for a place to hide away.
I don't know why I have to run. 
I still can not say,
I've done everything wrong,
Now I long for yesterday.
Yesterday all my troubles seemed so far away,
Now it looks as though they're here stay.
Suddenly I'm not all the man I used to be,
There's an evil shadow inside of me.
The good times were an easy game to play,
I'm searching for a place to hide away.
I don't know why I have to run.  
I still can not say,
I've done everything wrong,
Now I long for yesterday.

Your Love Letters

written with pencils
drawn with colours

these are your love letters

they haunt me every night
it feels to be liked

with your love letters

how can i tell you that i just want to be a friend?
how can i not hurt you, a fragile heart that cant understand?

seen from the corners
always spoke with whispers

it is all in your love letters

driving away from you
forcing myself to say that

i cant accept your love letters

its too much for me if i see you break down and fall..
i will take your hand one day but now i cant seem to dream that at all 

maybe i am in love with someone else
maybe i had not succumbed to your love spells

take me away
from your love letters

take me away
from your
world

just take me away

Woman in Black

You asked 
about the world, 
 I see it...
all these years, 
you don't know me 
I hold my tongue, 
afraid  
if  answered  
safe but not sound...

 My eyes, the world is 
 for good and evil. 

Without day, 
there is no night. 
Without hate, 
there is no love. 
Without a woman, 
there is no man. 
 it goes on and on 
while the world turns. 

The world, 
 makes me sad. 
 not proud to be an American 
 the Anti-Christ for a president. 
Damaged and lost. 
 not a big lover of mankind. 
prefer to be alone, 
but connection 
is important   
to feel alive, 
love is most.

 I am a loner 
People scare me. 
chaos, 
phoniness, bitterness, 
immorality, murder, 
hate, and unoriginality. 
savages running around 
wherever I turn. 
  true love? 
 so caught up 
...it disgusts me.   
I can't breathe. 
I can't hide. 
So much noise. 
So much sorrow 
Broken children, broken families. 
Broken hearts, broken spirits. 

Violins play 
all day long....
weeping for the world.......
I wear black...
 how I feel.

Of course, 
Love  
sees it all differently,  
God 
and many beautiful people out there 
 


 few and far between, 
 when I have the pleasure 
it's powerful 
Especially  
having that circle of
valuing my womanhood. 
I do in love. 
I do in true 
good, 
 the point of living  
 has touched me 
no words 
 have been close  
 He's close to me, 
calling me, 
wanting me 
like  once before. 
He is real. 
When I was close to Him, 
He painted a picture  
to uplift me. 
the moon. 
in awe . 
the beach 
on a full moon night, 
swimming 
in the black water with you. 
 sunsets. 
 animals. 
And babies. 
Nothing like the sight 
of a baby's smile, 
and the light 
Fresh, pure, 
and full of hope 
for the world.

Absolutely Captivating

The way she entered
Instantaneously stunning everyone in the room
Putting a hex on anyone in her path
Her bright eyes illuminate the room
A fresh perfume certainly intoxicating
As these whispers begin to stir
As this wondrous beauties extravagance
Radiates so much energy
Elevating a curious interest
She mingles ever-so graciously
Quite exquisite
Yet almost seeming coy 
She seems to be overdue for a real conversation
Due to her immense beauty
All of these delinquent amateurs waste her time
On pointless pick up lines
Maybe next time
You should exercise some civilized behavior
And you just may romanticize

I'M LOUDLY SINGING FOR JESUS...MY REDEEMER!

Everyone is with someone else they can't stay apart,
and this sadness shouldn't be mine today or ever...
because His birth makes light much brighter
in this lonely soul searching for comfort,
and that's why I'm loudly singing for Jesus:  my Redeemer!


What I feel comes from a heart that desperately 
desires its tears to erase what has been its yesterday,
and loudly singing for Jesus:  my Redeemer does me good;
praising His coming and proclaiming Him my Lord!


Nobody more than I...has the urge to be consoled,
when arms don't open to welcome me inside;
and His mighty arms, although trembling and small,
open up in loving gesture to greet my call!   


Come Jesus, friend of gentle hearts and kind souls,
spend Your day telling me what is in store for me;
how Heaven echoes of the angelic, eternal voices...
unlikely the earth that waits for a Savior to end its misery! 


Without instrument, music sheets, or choir on a snowy day: 
I'm loudly singing for Jesus...my Redeemer in the simplest way,
and my gladness is expressed in every verse of my song;
oh, how I'd like to thrill baby Jesus with the words I sing! 
    

I'm loudly singing for Jesus...my Redeemer,   
as I shiver under the cold sky of December!

Your love is gone

Your love is gone

You, told me  that  you love me forever
Oh girl, you promise me you never say goodbye
Why can't you stay

I still played the loved songs each and every day
to reminisce the time that you say
I love you
and i hope you stay with me my baby...

Your love is gone

Oh baby your still the one

So many memories we had in the past
But seasons ended and it didn't last

Oh baby your still the one

I ADORE MODEST WOMEN

I adore modest women,
so soft-spoken and
very elegant,
who aren't looking for men
to seduce without being
atrracted to  them!

There's a shortage of men,
and they try to get whomever they can,
ugly, handsome or good- for -nothing;
all they want is pleasure, not a friend! 

I love simple women
who are fashionable 
and very sleek;
I love women
who can look in their mirror
and say to themselves,
" I'm beautiful! "
Honesty can make any man weak,
enough to give them much more!

Be careful of women who touch their face
when they laugh and pretend to like your kisses,
giving you the illusion of a full moon...
in the middle of a hot afternoon:
you will burn, but won't remember a darned thing;
and all that wasted energy for a quick sling!
 
I adore modest women
who don't wear lots of make up...
to hide a despised face;
isn't simplicity
another form of beauty?
I adore modest women
who undress you when they're hot...
they make you feel wanted without words:
and that's when my passion starts up,
and I become a real man!

heaven just seems so far away

I hear your word and I know the truth
No fear of death in this unknown place
Sprits going to rise up across the human race
Wise men tell me what to do in my day

Heaven just seems so far today 
Lord come down take me away

Thoughts fill my head bring the once dead to life
Will there be other men of god after me
Want to feed the hungry help the blind see the word
Need to find the answers of the questions of this world

Heaven just seems so far today 
Lord come down take me away

Lord forgive us for all the sin we have had
All the bad it’s so sad but now I’m glad I found the lord
So many lost children never to be found
We are all homeward bound from here

Low Man Is Due

A low man is due...
My eyes seek reality,
My fingers feel for faith.
Touch clean with a dirty hand,
I touch the clean to the waste.
I fall cause I let go,
The net below has rot away.
And I cry to the alleyway,
Confess all to the rain.
But I lie straight to the mirror,
The one I've broken to match my face.
The fire is so warm,
But nowhere safe from the storm.
And I can't bear to see,
What I've let me be.
So wicked and worn.
So as I write to you,
Of what is done and to do.
Maybe you'll understand,
I won't cry for this man.
Cause low man is due.
So low the sky is all I see,
All I want from you is forgive me.
My eyes seek reality,
And my fingers seek my veins.
There's a dog at your back step,
He must come in from the rain.
But you bring that poor dog in from the rain,
Though he just wants right back out again.
So my fingers feel for faith,
And my eyes seek reality.
So as I write to you,
Of what is done and to do.
Maybe you'll understand,
I won't cry for this man.
Cause low man is due.

the blues of ugly people

Ugly people
We living in a world with a hole in it
We living life ugly
But we make the world go round 

Would you think I was hopeless
If I led you astray with a song
Whom else are you willing to cope with
I’ve gone missing within your arms

The future
It won’t be here to grace your face
And tomorrow just won’t take you in
Don’t you love your poets
Writers from within your storm

Tenderly, I’ve grown so cold
That my days no longer keep me warm
Capsuled in a city of dreary moments
And I’m hearing there’s more a coming 

As indecent as a man who knows not to feel
Searching for a wagon wheel 
Up from midnight and on until
Why don’t you sing with me
See how much time we can kill 

We’re just ugly people
Living in a world with a hole in it 
Don’t you love this ugly person
I don’t do much at all 
Just doing my part, living life ugly
But I make the world go round

“It’s lovely isn’t it
Ugly people, 
We’re beautiful aren’t we”

OH, MARIANNA GRAZIA!

Oh, Marianna Grazia...
was my friendly neighbor,
a lovely lady in her eighties!
She became a widow when her
husband died of a brain tumor,
he was a sailor of many oceans;
how evident was the sadness
of Marianna Grazia!


She had a Grand Piano, made of cherry oak,
not covered with a speck of dust, and smiling
she played an improvisation with style; 
and it depended on her mood! The rays of sunlight
entered diagonally and rested on it, while
her feeble fingers played the same, harmonic melody;
and her hubby liked to hear those notes enthusiastically...
that's how I remember Marianna Grazia at her best!


Oh, Marianna Grazia...
went to church every Sunday,
and passing by my gate, she always said
hello, and asked how things were going! 
She gave every kid on the block candy
and flowers she grew in the back-yard;
oh, I miss how you hummed that song... 
oh, Marianna Grazia!


Today I walked by her house,
the Venetian blinds were closed at noon,
I was overtaken by a sudden gloom;
her youngest daughter approached me
and mutterred very grieving words,
" My mom has passed away in a tragic way,
she slipped and fell, and hit the cement;
she passed out as blood gushed from her forehead."  


Oh, Marianna Grazia...
never will I have another conversation
about her experience in Normandy, 
and the stories of a nurse during World War II,
were as inspirational as her vocation!
Oh, Marianna Grazia...
look down below and wave gracefully;
life is not as everlasting as that love given by you,
oh, Marianna Grazia!

Sesame Street Buns

The casting crew look at you and their minds go in the gutter 
If you knew their thoughts, it would make you shudder 
Ernie feels left out without his rubber ducky 
Big Bird believes he can lay eggs, he tells himself maybe tonight I will get lucky 
You strut around with your Daisy Dukes to tan in the sun 
Every sees your exposed Sesame Street buns 
Go visit Maria, she has the fix it shop 
Visit oscar and revel in his slop 
Mr. Hooper allows you to run a tab in his General Store 
Snuffleupagist with a snozz like that, I bet he really snores 
Now you have a date with Louise in apartment 101 
He is salivating as he thinks about your Sesame Steet buns 
Watch out J-Lo you have a rival from the backside 
Dirty thoughts cause men to approach a non Catholic Priest to confide 
Ladies and gentlemen, we have a new number one 
Hang your head in shame J-Lo the one on Sesame Street has the best buns 
The Count counts the votes over and over all day long 
Bert is on steroids, now he's strong 
Get to the church, the wedding has just begun 
Grover is marrying the one with the Sesame Street buns 
Hearts are broken, she is no longer in the singles scene 
Cookie Monster covers his depression with cookies and cream 
Within a month they are divorced 
Not surprised, they are celebrities of course 
She is now used goods, everyone is stunned 
J-Lo moves in to the neighborhood to claim the title of Sesame Street buns

Unstable

Damage is done 
Blames all your own 
I lived for you only 
not that you cared 
not that you knew 

Like a smile from an angel 
Looking right through me 
What I’d give for your notice 
just a catch of your eye 

Hours turn to days, as minutes tick by 
Still you’re looking, looking right through 
All that I am is meant just for you 
How is it you cannot see me 
I’m right here, right in front of you 

It’s killing me 
But its killing you too 

Damage is done 
Blames all your own 
I lived for you only 
not that you cared 
not that you knew 

Hallowed out, I refuse to die alone 
Even the emptiness is gone 
Left on the edge 
just waiting for a push 

Running out of patience 
Breath comes heavy 
Still there is nothing 
Again you look right though me 
Why can’t you see 

It’s killing me 
But it’s killing you too 

Damage is done 
Blames all your own 
I lived for you only 
Not that you cared 
Not that you knew 

Can’t go on like this no longer 
Just existing in shadow 
Don’t walk through me again 
Don’t, don’t you dare 

Bun halo, burn 
I’m taking you down 
All we could have been 
You just wouldn’t see 
All the love for you, living in me 

Damage is done 
Blames all your own 
I lived for you only 
Not that you cared 
Not that you knew

a Novel Time

Sometimes you learn to look at things
As if they are to get no better

Like single mothers on the first days of January
A hymn for the things you’d love to change 
A prayer for the things you cannot 

There is no new year for people like me 
Only a continuation of stress to be 
Life deals us blows and my songs are tired 

I’ve heard that happiness is a tale untold
In order to pursue this wish
One is required to hide beyond blue skies

Like life is love
Death is a cold hug
I’ll patiently wait

I Can Finally Drive

My bicycle days are through 
Please help me spread the news 
I no longer have to be a 32 year old hermit 
Mom and Dad got me my permit 
I just bought a car that seats 5 
Thanks to my parents I can finally drive 
Mom goes with me and my girlfriend out to eat 
Mom rides shotgun, my girl in the back seat 
While we are eating with live entertainment 
My girlfriend expresses how she doesn't like the car's seating arrangement 
So my mom drives and my girl is shotgun 
Now I am the lonely one 
We drop off my girlfriend and I ask my mom to remove the knife 
She says stop complaining, now you can drive 
The next night my Dad goes out with me and my buds 
We want to sit back and suck down a few suds 
Not on my watch, my Dad says 
My night out with the buds was disastrous 
After one beer, my Dad says you are too drunk to get behind the wheel 
He has no idea how this freedom of driving makes me feel 
My Mom and Dad are smothering me, my social life will never survive 
With them around, it look as if I will never truly drive 
Now it's Mom's turn to escort me, guess where we go 
My girl and Mom in the front seats, we stop at Domino's 
We all three sit in the car and wait for the pizza to get done 
Mom says no a/c, let's enjoy the sun 
I begin a waterfall of sweat 
Mom says look at you, you're all wet 
Mom asks for extra napkins when the pizza is delivered to the car 
Mom says tonight is Friday, let's park by the lake and enjoy the stars 
At the lake, I will drown myself, if I take a dive 
I am going back to the bicycle, I will never again attempt to drive

Though I've had the best of the moon and stars

And the freedom's oh so sweet

There's still a lot of places I've never been
Still a lot of things I've never seen
Keep me moving on.

In the bible there is a story,about a man ,

Who built an ark in the desert,

I'll be in between till the day I'm old

Couldn't be richer but I don't have money

Never got lost but I've not been found
Sang alot of songs and never made a sound

Always been lonely and I've always been loved

If I listen to rock and roll,or a country song.
It dont matter to me at all.
We can stay home, or go out and have a ball.

I dont care if she left or right
If it is written in black or white
It dosent matter to me at all
I can play it safe,or ride in a barrow over NIAGRA FALLS.

I dont care if she is fat or thin 
What is the color of her skin
What kind of person she really is
All I know I love her, and that is just the way it is.

Skull of Fire

Too late, too late
nothing could ever be
the same.
The mistakes we'd
retrace make me find
that the memory's
still stain.

You take and take
as you often hesitate
repeating ever action that
you make.
Do what you do
but leave me out of it to
im done with everything about
you.

Break through my skull
With words once sharp now so dull
As you leave me down below
I know you hate me so bad
But there some things you should know.

The damage you inflict it's just enough
for me
the wounds are countless, burning buildings, but
im the only victim i see.
As the fire stokes the letters that you wrote
float fast into the flames
and as i watch the embers burn
for once im not concerned
as the fire finally consumes
your name.

Break through your skull
With words once sharp now so dull
As i leave you down below
It's time to let you go
But there are some things you should know.

A Child in War

As the dust burns my weary eyes
I push on and compromise 

Looking for a long lost dream 
Of swimming through the waters clean

Bombs echoing in the distance
Dead and gone in an instance

Praying to god for every breath
A candle lit for every death

It is here I sit all alone 
A heart that burns turns to stone

A concert of horror ringing clear
I run and hide all in fear

I steal and lie to survive 
Of my family I am the only life

Oh! Please set me free
My wish repeated instantly!

In my mind all is rage 
I feel locked up in a cage

When will this nightmare end?
A stray bull dog my only friend

During the nights we stay warm
We help each other through the storms

Our night lights, are burst from your guns
The politicians say we are the ones

The ones who kill day to day
For when I grow up they will pay

My train of thought, pains me now and then
When I know war is a means to an end

Sometimes I try to escape
But I was turned in for a stay

Slaving for the men of war
Sometimes a cook, sometimes a whore

Oh! Please set me free
My wish repeated instantly

I have to kill to get away
I can no longer bear the pain 

My knife slides across their throats
I’m caked in blood that coat’s

Before I could run I heard screaming
I continued my work while the tears were streaming

In a way I am glad I was caught
Now I can join that heavenly lot!

My hound of war was first feed to me
Then I was beat to subdue me!

Almost to the point of certain death
But they tortured my every breath

They kept me breathing for the rope.
They slung my body from the post

I choked and kicked all I could
While the others just watched from where the stood

Before I lost my failing senses 
I prayed to god just to end this

At that moment my prayers were sealed
A boy in the crowd revealed his steel

A rip of pain through the chest
The bullet entered and did its best

For a few days my body was displayed
For those under slavery to see who disobeyed 

After a few days my body was searched
Only a small diary was all the thieves could perch

Meaningless thoughts were rattled out of rhyme
A small short story of the life that was my time

Beckoning to those that are still at war
Freedom is a bullet wound for the soul to finally soar.

Oh! Please set me free
My wish repeated instantly.

That same boy who ended all this pain 
They ended him his efforts never vain

Pennywhistle Tune

Fried eggs on a sunny day,
white clouds in the hamper.
Dreamfully dozing dogs,
black kittens scamper.

Dim-witted clock alarm – 
nobody’s sleeping!
Morning’s a carousel
dipping and leaping.

See all the ants in line.
What say the roaches?
Beetles go soaring in
shiny black coaches.

School kids may all digress
skipping the sidewalk. 
Lawyer may lose his tongue,
judge climb a beanstalk.

Brown eggs and buttercups,
blue-starch the collar.
Moth-wings on sale today,
six pair a dollar.

Would You Be a Witness?

Would you be a witness for Jesus Christ
If the world came against you with all its might?
To the point of death be faithful and true;
Would you do for Christ what He has done for you?

A PASSION AS STRONG AS THIS

I never felt a passion
as strong as this;
somewhere I lost
the memory of her kiss...
inside there's still
the wild imagination
of an impatient,wild man...
feeling out of luck!

I have forgotten
how lucky I was...
having her anytime 
I was in need of company,
but today I cry out of misery...
asking for forgiveness,
wishing it could be
so easily undone!


I never felt a passion
as strong as this;
I blew all my chances...
thinking they weren't the only ones;
The more she gave me,
the less I gave back...
never expecting to wind up alone,
while she still laughs at me...
proudly standing by his side:
to make me feel dead inside! 

I have stared into the darkness
and lay my emty hands
on the coldest bed...
thinking of what I once had!

Is there a way to turn
my lonely thoughts to someone else:
putting it all beyond me without a thought...
like I refuse to learn?
Is there someone to help me forget...
a passion as strong as this?

' Warriors ... The Battle Cry Song ... '

There Are Sounds of Ancient Thunders
There Are Sounds of Ancient Drummers
        Calling … Brave Warriors
         Gladiators and Warriors

And They’re Marching To The Cadence of Their Hearts’ Pounding
Marching, To The Cadence of The World’s Rage Resounding
They’re Going By The Beat of Their Heart’s Pumping
By The Steady Flow of Blood and Bloodlust, Tells Me Somethin’

               … Warriors …
         Courageous Warriors …

Chorus:

But, We’ve Seen These Men, Playing With Their Children
We’ve Seen These Sons and Their Laughter, I’m Hearing
We’ve Seen These Men, Loving Their Babies
And Tenderly Holding and Kissing Their Ladies

               … Warriors …
         Courageous Warriors …

2nd Chorus:

Oh Lord, Please Stop These Warriors’ Battle Cry
And The Battle Cry, Coming From Their Mothers and Wives
The Battle Cry, Coming From Their Little Ones’ Eyes
The Battle Cry, Coming From Warriors … When They Die

               … Warriors …
         Courageous Warriors …

Sticks and Stones, Swords, Arrows and Bombs
Lances, Knives, Hand to Hand Combat, Napalm
God Almighty, Oh, Thy Kingdom Come
Please Rescue Us, From The Kingdom of The Gun …

And Prophecy Is Marching – Listen, All Who Arms Bear
Warriors, Must Beat War Weapons Into Plowshares            ( Isa. 2: 4 )
And When War, Is No More, Then We Will Hear
All Warriors’ Battle Cry, Will Be An Amen Cheer !

              … Gentle Warriors …
            Peace-Loving, Warriors …

2nd Chorus:

Oh Lord, Please Stop These Warriors’ Battle Cry
And The Battle Cry, Coming From Their Mothers and Wives
The Battle Cry, Coming From Their Little Ones’ Eyes
The Battle Cry, Coming From A Warrior’s … Last ‘ Why ? ’

                … Warriors …
           Courageous Warriors …

How Can Flesh and Blood, Mortal-Men, Be So Fearless, I Wonder
Are They Strengthened By Duty, Love and Honor
Facing Danger, Death and Being Torn Asunder
Sacrificing All, As A Fallen Soldier …

                 … Warrior …
           Courageous Warrior …

When I

When i fall
don't you worry about me
ive been that way before
as the scars aren't hard to see.
And if i break
im sure you'll be there too
at the end of this long road
im sure there's nothing left to do.

When i hurt
im sure you'll be the one
who cuddles me in close
as i struggle hard to run.
and if it stings
it may be just a little bit
but i know it's not that bad
i know that i'll get rid of it.

And when i
go through all these things
emotions, good and bad
experience these feelings.
And when i
go through all these motions
good and bad
experience the saddest things
or getting really mad.
i know you'll be there
when i.

When im lost
For me a flashlight you will seek
so i can find a way back home
you'll carry me on your shoulders i am weak.
When i cry
those sentimental tears
im sure you'll be beside me with the tissues
sitting by me in your chair.

And when i die
I know you'll be holding my hand
run your fingers through my hair
missing me but you'll understand.
When i go away from here
you'll be there looking at me
while you shed away the tears.
As i lay in rest don't worry
ive had a real long life
i had you beside me and you've been
the perfect wife.
And those nights you'll remember holding
tight, missing me so much
but knowing this is life.

And when i
go through all these things
emotions, good and bad
experience these feelings.
And when i
go through all these motions
good and bad
experience the saddest things
or getting really mad.
i know you'll be there
when i.

Slumber

In the night time, through
the darkness comes the voices
of all the pain and agony.
They disguise themselves
as friends who want to help
but i say no and they just won't
let me be.
In my dreams they always haunt me
show me things i can't control
how do you deal with seeing someone you
love
die in front of you, it's like ripping out your soul.

At night i try and slumber
but they always visit me
they awake me like the thunder
just so they can mock me.
At night i try and slumber
But there voices break the breeze
They awake me, to take me under
so they can bury me.

So they show me all these things
and i lay there wondering if i'll
wake up before it gets worse.
As the dreams get more persistant
And they horror comes in bursts.
I can't wake up, i can't let go
Claw at the walls, try to get home
and as i wake up in the cold sweat
im feeling defensless and alone.

Why can't they let me be?
Am i own worst enemy?
Am i the only one who can feel
these dreams?
Is it all inside my head?
All the feelings of the dread, and sorrow
not knowing if there will be a tomorrow.
Im trying get through today
trying hard to find a way
so when i got to bed at night
a peacefull rest and on a soft pillow
i will lay.

At night i try and slumber
but they always visit me
they awake me like the thunder
just so they can mock me.
At night i try and slumber
But there voices break the breeze
They awake me, to take me under
so they can bury me.

JESUS ONCE CAME TO SAVE US

Jesus came to save us
and will return to earth unexpectedly
to estabilish an everlasting kingdom,
stronger than the rocks of the mountains,
which nobdy is caple of destroying...not
even Satan,with all his power,can try!

Jesus once came to bring us together as
many obeying children under one family;
He'll gather all under His throne
to make us perfect and holy:
we'll have new bodies and minds without pain,
and we will glorify Him eternally!

Jesus will reappear to open his pierced palms 
and say to the silent crowds
"Come and eat at the table of my kingdom
with the holy prophets and saints;
come and share with them the pure love,
joy,peace and happiness that my father offers!"

Jesus's gospel is about kindness,  
like imitating the very little ones...
if we are to enter the gates of his kingdom
and He joyfully tells us,
"Love like them and learn from them,
but don't harm or corrupt them...
because my judgement will be very harsh;
choose life to uphold fairness and justice!

Jesus hears the prayers that we utter   
when we go through hardships and unbearable days,
and He will grant only those that are sincere and truthful;
Jesus seeks good hearts to dispel their fears,
to console them when they don't choose the ways of the world... 
to suffer much,but never to give up to despair!

happily ever after

Every time I look at you my feelings run deep. 

Your eyes they speak to me with words I will keep

They tell me that we will always be together

Happily ever after now and forever.

Your tender loving kisses makes my heart want to sing

A song of love from deep inside, to me your everything

And each night I ask the Lord for one more day

Just so I can have the chance to say

Happily ever after like Mom and Dad

Heaven is something we've always had

Our love is a precious thing one of a kind

Kept safe within our hearts for us to find

That happily ever after we will stand.

Happily ever after hearts hand in hand

And oh sweet angel of mine

Without you I am not alive

For you are the only light I seeeeeeee 

And through all of the ups and all the downs 

With all of the love we have found

I will build my home with you and live anywhere

Happily ever after now and forever



happy anniversary eddie my husband i love you more everyday. this poem i also 
made a song out of it too eddie just for you.

Lazy Hound Dog Blues

The alarm goes off, I open my eyes to face the day 
I roll back over to sleep it away 
The wife begins to preach to me 
No work, unemployed, I am free 
I go to the unemployment office and talk to the man 
He looks at my state and says he will do what he can 
The man asks me which of the three jobs I choose 
I don't want a job, I guess I've got those Lazy Hound Dog Blues 
I go outside, sit at the bench and wait for the bus 
I've got nowhere to be, I ain't in no rush 
It's getting to be late in the afternoon 
Getting hungry and will be home soon 
My wife left me a note saying were through 
At the moment I don't care, it's the curse of the lazy hound dog blues 
I tell myself tomorrow I will look for a job 
Gotta clean myself up, no one will hire a slob 
The alarm goes off I hit the snooze 
Not today, I am nagged by those lazy hound dog blues 
My wife calls, says she wants to work things out 
I try to explain, she begins to shout 
She won't listen what's the use 
I tell there is a cure for the flu 
But how do you shake the lazy hound dog blues

Whatever You Wanted

Here we go fighting again
and ever single time you think you should win
after words the things you say have me wondering
about everything.
And are we really together or is this just a fling
not for me but for you, as it seems your studdering
as i ask you where you've been, now it's thundering
the rain hits the ground with a thud and im sitting
here waiting for you to say something.
Finally you open your mouth
how dare you!, you say for me having doubts
i guess the phone numbers i found are out of bounds
and to question you is taboo about you whereabouts.

Whatever you say it's all the same
it comes out one side like it's me to blame
you make these excuses that turn out lame
but the bad things you've done turn love into hate.

How could i? dare to ask you about this
i would rather talk it out then fight with our fists
but that's just it isn't it? you'd rather we hit
because you know that your wrong and this is your way
out of it.
Sorry but im not stooping down to your level
and the love i had for you now it's starting to rebel
the evil you put me through, like running on a treadmill
after something that i always wanted but i noticed
that ive always been standing still
finally im ready to fight ive got the will
to break away from you and your poisonous shill
so like a bad habit im dropping this pill
and before you know it i'll be headed for the hills.

Whatever you say it's all the same
it comes out one side like it's me to blame
you make these excuses that turn out lame
but the bad things you've done turn love into hate.

Only She Cries

What If I told You That I Loved you
would we care
would we die
 Chains surrounding Alice
Only She Cries
 
World Banished her
Love left her
all Alone
Melancholia presides over
 
Alice dies again
Will she ever reign
 
Will she ever see
what’s here to be
Only She Cries
 
She’s a ghost
Nobody to call Her name
Only She Cries
will she not live
whispers of her Raven mind
only control her
There’s no hope
Only she Cries
What If I told You That I Loved you
 
 
Empty Without a savoir
Will She ever be cured from this
will she breakaway
Gaia couldn’t be so cruel
Just to wail away—Let the Banshee Crie
Just wail away the pain
wail away the pain
 
Enter my heart and you’ll see
that Was the only thing you could ever need
Alice; only she cries
let it show
That love never dies
Through Euphoria
through melancholia
 
 
She’s a ghost
Nobody to call Her name
Only She Cries
will she not live
whispers of her Raven mind
only control her
There’s no hope
Only she Cries
What If I told You That I Loved you
 
 
She’s a ghost
Nobody to call Her name
Only She Cries
will she not live
whispers of her Raven mind
only control her
There’s no hope
Only she Cries
What If I told You That I Loved you
 
 
You didn’t know
how you could save her
Only if you could her
Alice dies
Only she cries

The Train

It's been years since I've heard that lonesome whistle blow 
Or smelled the smoke along the track
And I've been getting the urge to go
As my memories carry me back
There's an old railway station with its' doors boarded up
Thats a monument to days gone by
It holds stories of passion, triumphs and love
And it brings a tear to my eye

I want to ride these rails till the day I die
I want to see the cities passing by 
To hear that lonesome whistle cry
And to camp out in the rain

I want to feel the freedom that the railroad brings
Listen to the song that the bluebird sings
Visit places where I can spread my wings
Oh God I miss the train

There's an open road calling out to me
There's a lot of places I want to see
The lure of the rails won't let me be
And it's driving me insane

I  just don't know what I want to do
To settle down would make me blue
Always looking for something new
Oh God I miss the train

I walked those railroad tracks
When I was just a kid
Throwing stones, singing songs
Never kept my feelings hid
I'd sit on those wooden benches
And watch the old man sell tickets to places far away
And daydream of cowboys and outlaws riding the ranges
On a hot and sultry day
Now those days are no more
But I'm still longing for
The mountain and valley and plain
Although I still yearn
I can never return
Oh God I miss the train.

A Hard Mix Between Heaven and Hell

There is a place where few have been
No beginning and no end
A place where I am prepared to go
They say you reap what you sow
I have done my share of very bad things
I flew home to piss on my ex-wife\'s grave
Drinking, smoking, lots of lust and sin has helped me come out of my shell
I am experiencing a hard mix between Heaven and Hell
Practicing Witch Craft one step away from a human sacrifice
I could feel the blood in my veins turn to ice
My life has been a twist and turn affair, never a straight line
If I were to ask you are you dark or do you shine
Nobody is holier than thou, so stop the fake front
Come clean with the bad things you have done
Do a gut check and you will be able to tell
How potent  is your shot will be of Heaven and Hell
There is chess board in everyone\'s life and we are all pawns
Just which side is your bread buttered on
Do gooders, most are sinners behind closed doors
Money is the root of all evil, yet churches ask people to give more
A percentage of your income to make the preachers rich
They have no interest in you, yet you are one dollar away from sleeping in a ditch
Sinners openly display their intentions in life
Wife cheats on husband because husband cheats on wife
Go ahead and pray for forgiveness for all your daily sins, another trip to the well
Here, the bar is open, here's your hard mix of Heaven and Hell
Catholic Priests molesting alter boys, they will definitely face the heat
Is there forgiveness for them to reach their Heavenly retreat
Where do you fit in with the grand master scheme of things, no one can tell
Everyone will be able to place their order for their shot of Heaven and Hell

Agoraphobia

There are places in this world
that i can't go
The safest place i know
is inside of my home.
At times i just feel
so low
And other times i question my
motivations for getting out of bed and coming
up with the answer being unknown.

People that i'll never meet or see
as they pass by on the street
nervously i turn the key
to get back to my room.
And if you asked me this today
i'd tell you i'd never asked to be this way
can't help it if it's to hard for me
to breathe.

There are doctor's and psychiatrist's
who tell me all the time that im fine
and they know just how i feel.
There are doctor's and psychiatrist's
that it's all in my mind
but they don't understand that
it's real.

Most just don't understand how hard
it is to be dealt this hand.
Now im not complaining it could
be worse.
But people mock and laugh because
of this brand.
Makes me punch the wall in anger breaking
it with my fists.

Walk just one day in my shoes
Just how good would you do?
Would you let everything ride?
Or just run way and hide?
All the pain and misery
Lonely nights when you can't sleep
All the thoughts inside your head
Feeling nothing more than dead
Go ahead i challenge you
Take some time and think it through
Then maybe you'll know what it's like
to be me, and not you.
                                                                                                                                             
There are doctor's and psychiatrist's
who tell me all the time that im fine
and they know just how i feel.
There are doctor's and psychiatrist's
that it's all in my mind
but they don't understand that
it's real.
There are doctor's and psychiatrist's
who tell me all the time that im fine

Synching up

Did you ever want to let go
and just be a memory?
Or just so jaded from the world that
you wish you couldn't see?
Anger and hatred ruled over me
easily
Until you came along and saved
me.

I was so conflicted about what was right
and wrong
Was so sick and tired of being swept away
in the darkest of storms.
Your hand it shined as the rain bounced off
the skin
and as our lips embraced a new life
for us was about to begin.

All the pain and misery
Take it all away from me
As i lay down to sleep
our eyes synch together as
do our hearts beat.

Before you everything
felt so blue, felt used
like everything i ever wanted
fell right through.
Then you appeared
out of no where
letting me know that it's you who cared
understanding, never demanding
Showing me in the hardest of times
there's really nothing to fear.

All the pain and misery
Take it all away from me
As i lay down to sleep
our eyes synch together as
do our hearts beat.

Drink Up Genocide

Drown yourself so deeply it hurts
it tells such a story that no longer hurts
take it from me i'll tell you 
this life you live will send you there
to drink up genocide in this lively air
flying and searching for nothing
while these sparks of knowledge kiss the lips
of one thousand headlights that held you tight
words of sonnets are raining hard only on the brains
of those who believe that trying never makes it
in this world of sancturary that holds this garden of words
that seemingly seep out what we all as one have been thinking

I BELONG TO YOU BY RIGHT

I belong to you by right,
because I indefinitely possess
your captured heart;
and I can't settle for anything less!

Your innocence and true smile,
quickly tempted me to do
the unthinkable and the impossible;
like a lightining out of the blue...
you led me all the way through,
and made miracles happen for two!

I belong to you by right,
believe it with all your might;
I can make big things happen...
make a rainy day shine brighter
than that unreachable star
and bring you closer to Heaven!

Love can make every heart come alive,
and we shouldn't let it slide;
but love that  incredible moment
with passion and sentiment!

I belong to you by right,
yes,let's become one tonight;
I belong to you by right...
let's believe in what feels right!

Slightly Askew

Lately it appears
As if something is missing
That spark's not quite there
Have you started dismissing
By becoming increasingly distant

Are you growing immune
At an inopportune moment
Unfortunate events
Are now putting dents
Causing you to lament
All the time that's been spent
Your abandonment issues 
Manifest malcontent
Presenting the case
That resent will torment

It's odd
Your demeanor is this incomplete
Are their things going on
That have led to deceit

There's an unwanted tension
That isn't so sweet
Not to mention the way
You mistreat then repeat
Please don't allow love to become obsolete

the window she saw
what she never had
family gatherings and parties
occasions good and bad.
As her breath fogged up the
window and the picture began
to fade
she finally knew why all her life things
felt like one giant mistake.

She whispered at night
God help me im so empty inside
And as she closed her eyes she sighed
I hope that you hear me tonight.

At school they always pick
on her, say mean things, make fun
of her clothes and the way she thinks.
The tears drop down her shirt as
she ponders if this can get any worse.
Walking home, she strolls alone
nobody there to care as the
streets grow bare, she sits in the dark
next to the light pole.

She whispers at night
God help me im so empty inside
And as she closed her eyes she sighed
I hope you finally hear me tonight

Have a Merry Christmas

Have a merry Christmas
And a happy New Year
May this very Christmas
Be filled with holiday cheer
Let everyday be Christmas
For the rest of the year
And have a merry Christmas
Filled with holiday cheer  (Chorus)

To all of those we know, to all of those we love
To those we have seen grow and like to kiss and hug
To our new family members and old familiar friends
Attached to the presents, written in the cards we send

Season's greetings and warm wishes with so much care
And good tidings of great joy I bring in this little prayer

(Chorus)

To all those you'll see and to those who'll pass by you 
To all those you'll meet and to those you'll say "Hi" to
Acquaintances and strangers, the homeless and shut in
Remember them like family and treat them like your friends

Give them season's greetings, warm wishes with so much care
And gold tidings of great joy bring to them in this little prayer

But do not let it end, live a life of love and cheer
In and out of season share it in the New Year

(Chorus)

Aquarian Dream II- Leaving Kali Yuga

A glimpse in your gilded eyes Tells me all inside your lieing mind How can you Stand without a spine How can you speak without a will Failed to announce the pain Will they realize the illusion Is it all to late? The lies that are so common Have put up a delusion Infront Of the people's mind So deep away from the dark Will we come when father is coming For us, is it all to late? Soft little messenger I dare you to spread the word About our dying world All come far and near Listen to what we have been waiting to hear The walls have broken down The gates have been breached The Keep stormed in Praise and sing They have killed our king Our conformity is on it's last day All Black Skies have been tainted with grey Our flags are now just tinder The palace has all been burned to cinders Our Empire has fell Praise and sing They have killed our king I see the light of a dawning Age Let a new era begin An Aquarian dream a day where we are all free Inside our minds; our hidden refuge But there's no need to hide perfection Concordia shall be our queen Justice, independence, liberty are our only virtues free to be whoever our heart let's us be Go to the tower, strike the bell Soft little messenger And tell of Victory All come far and near Listen to what we have been waiting to hear The walls have broken down The gates have been breached The Keep stormed in Praise and sing They have killed our king Our conformity is on it's last day All Black Skies have been tainted with grey Our flags are now just tinder The palace has all been burned to cinders Our Empire has fell Praise and sing They have killed our king All come far and near Listen to what we have been waiting to hear The walls have broken down The gates have been breached The Keep stormed in Praise and sing They have killed our king Our conformity is on it's last day All Black Skies have been tainetd with grey Our flags are now just tinder The palace has all been burned to cinders Our Empire has fell Praise and sing They have killed our king

Where Do We Go From Here?

We don't mesh
Since we've been one flesh
We're never on good terms for long
As a matter of fact
One misheard word or act
Makes us conclude everything's wrong

And we don't click
Like the stones and sticks
That we've gathered from far and near
They've all been used
Now that we're battered and bruised
Where do we go from here...?

Why do we settle down
To settle for less or save face
By not waiting for true happiness?
Why do we put on a show
And act funny with each other,
Yet neither of us is laughing yet?

And why do we get confident
Seeing our strength and beauty,
Finally, from the words of a stranger?
And why do we stay together
While pushing ourselves apart?
Without mutual love we're in danger.

(Excerpts from the song Where Do We Go From Here?)

JD And Rock

Getting tired of hearing sad songs 
Tearing out my soul
Just give me a little Jack Daniels
And a whole lot of rock 'n roll
Don't want nothing making me feel sorry
Nothing making me feel down
Just want to get out and party
And rock all over town
So, let your hair down baby
And give up what you call class
Cause all that melancholy 
Is becoming a pain in the
There isn't time to stand and whine
That just leave me cold
So give me a little Jack Daniels, babe
And a whole lot of rock 'n roll.
Gonna fly tonight, out of sight
Where I ain't ever been before
Gonna get all my frustrations out
And scream till my lungs get sore
Gonna shout and yell, and raise some hell
Until the night gets old
Gonna have me a little Jack Daniels, babe
And a whole lot of rock 'n roll.

Ring Around The Pumpkin

For the bounty of the earth
Come Ye thankful people come
For it is Autumn
And the leaves are coming down
Run run sweet John Barley Corn
Let's play ring around the pumpkin
As the harvest moon shines
On the jingle jangle scarecrow
For I'am just a little acorn
Bounded for another harvest home
As the wind shakes the barley
Like a slow Thanksgiving waltz
For our farmers sets the table
To a wondrous haymakers hoedown
For we bid ado to a Shokan's fairwell
And now thank we to all our God



Happy Harvest Time To All
Love Kathy And Jenny
May God Be With You 


Just Another Song Working On LOL
Let Me Know What Ya Think   Please

With a Shout!

With a shout!
At the last trump
The archangel's
Voice shall be heard
For the Lord 
Himself shall come
So encourage
All with these words!  (Chorus)

If we believe that Jesus died
And in three days He rose again
Then we believe that God will bring
With Christ those who now sleep in Him

For if only in this life we have hope in Jesus Christ
We would be the most miserable of men 
But Jesus is the Resurrection and He's the Life
Being buried with Him we shall rise again

(Chorus)

We who are alive and in Jesus still abides
Won't precede those who are asleep in Him 
So the dead in Christ first shall arise  
Then we who remain shall be caught up with them

For we all shall not sleep, but we all shall be changed
Into a being and a likeness of the Lord
When we meet Him face to face in the clouds in the air
We shall be with Him always and evermore

(Chorus)

Say Goodbye

I called your house on Sunday, girl
Your Mama answered the phone
She said you packed your bags the night before 
And left for San Antone
Trying to fulfill a fading dream before time washed it away
She said you were going out on your own
To make it bg someday.
You didn't have to call me 
To give me a reason why
You didn't have to say a word
 'Cause a I have no right to pry
But I'm still sitting here feeling like I'm gonna cry
The least you could have done was call and say goodbye.
I hope you find everything you want
And all your dreams come true
But if they don't, just remember, girl
I'll be waiting here for you
And if you find the price of your dream 
Was just too high to pay
Then turn around, say goodbye
And head back home to stay

Does She Ever Speak of Me

Does she ever speak of me while she's roaming all around
Does she ever say she's sorry for the way she put me down
Does she still have the prettiest, bluest eyes in town
Tell me now, does she ever speak of me?
I wonder if she realizes what she did just wasn't right
I wonder if she cries when there's no one else in sight
I wonder if she reaches out for me in the middle of the night
Tell me now , does she ever speak of me?
Does she still light up a room just by walking in the door
Does she still turn people's heads when she walks across the floor
Does she ever let you know what her heart is longing for
Tell me now, does she ever speak of me?
I wonder if she knows that I loved her from the start
I wonder if she knows that I prayed we'd never part
I wonder if I asked her if she would return my heart
Tell me now, does she ever speak of me?
Does she still wear a scarlet ribbon in her golden hair
Does she ever talk about me and the times we used to share
Does she ever close her eyes and wish that I was there
Tell me now, does she ever speak of me?

Forsaken Eurydice

[Satyr]
A quick game is all it will be
I can tell you can hear my shouts and screams from forest 
Your home it beckons thee
Why won't you come and play with me?
 
Why cant you cure her?
The venom isn't too deep
If you could awaken her once
Cant you do it again
 Did sorrow blind you?
 
 [Orpheus] 
Eurydice Eurydice how mortal death has forsaken thee
Why I not could listen to the dread king
All the life to you I could bring
I had to look back with eyes of dismay
Eurydice Eurydice how mortal death has forsaken thee 
Music no more will there be 
For I have forsaken my Eurydice 
 
 [Persophone] 
He will never listen 
No is all you will hear
Death is always the killer of love
Death will always win
 
 [Hades] 
Go back to your kingdom
My words have been proclaimed
Your music will not be able to charm
 
 [Persophone] 
Why don't you please
Give him his love
He went this far in vainI
f he cannot see her blank face
Wont why you please

Eurydice Eurydice how mortal death has forsaken thee
Why I not could listen to the dread king
All the life to you I could bring

If it will please
You can see her
Only without your eyes
Throughout the dark realm
Looking back will forsaken your Eurydice

Why I not could listen to the dread king
All the life to you I could bring
I had to look back with eyes of dismay
Eurydice Eurydice how mortal death has forsaken thee 
Music no more will there be

Rising from the Ashes.

I'm sitting here in this room
these four walls are closing in.
All i do is sit and think
about the things that might have been.
What could I've done,
what should I've done
to change the ending to this story?
what could i do,
what i should do
so this pain does not destroy?
i fall. 
I pray.
I beg forgiveness.
I stand. 
I rise. 
I feel God's presence.
I'm cleansed.
I'm free.
I am a new creation.
All these feelings rising inside, 
love, trust, happiness, pure elation.
The old me burns away,
the new me rises out.
Each and every step ordained by God Himself without a doubt.
He made me in His image of this I'm sure,
and I make a declaration today,
with a heart that's true and pure.
To do God's will and praise His name in everything I do,
and because of His love I will never be the same,
nor would I want to.
To continue on the path that i was following would be foolish and unwise,
so here i go one foot in front of the other,
and from these ashes I will rise.

Go to the Ant

Go to the ant and learn (2x's)
Go to the ant, ant, ant
Go to the ant and learn-  (Chorus)

She digs her house down deep
She builds her house up high
And though she has no king
Her armies stay alive

In the summer she will reap
For the coming winter sky
She gathers everything
Her colonies survive

(Chorus)

Consider all her ways
She's small but she expects
Her people stay as one
And she is strong and wise

So number all your days
Prepare for what comes next
And til everything is done
Let no sleep tempt your eyes

Go to the ant, ant, ant (3x's)
Go to the ant

Toe to Toe

Back in the day
people thought they knew
me,
That i would give up so
easily but believe
That's not how i am
today,
And if you got a comment i got more
than enough to say.

If you want a war
Step to the door with me
And if your man enough
Go toe to toe with me.
And if you want a war
On the floor you'll be
The only way you'll beat me
Is in your dreams.

Go ahead and push me
to the limit
Fight all you want you'll just 
end up to regret it
It takes a true friend
to stab you in the front
But if you really want this
then i'll give you all i GOT.

If you want a war
Step to the door with me
And if your man enough
Go toe to toe with me.
And if you want a war
On the floor you'll be
The only way you'll beat me
Is in your dreams.

Open your mouth
insert your foot inside
You talk alot of trash for someone
who likes to hide
Can't even look someone right in the face
They all figured out your just a waste of
there time and space
And one day your gonna wake up and see
that everyone around you aren't your friends
but your enemies.

And if you want a war
Step to the door with me
And if your man enough
Go toe to toe with me
And if you want a war
On the floor you'll be
The only way you'll beat me
is in your dreams.
And if you want a war
Step through the doors with me
Are you man enough to face me?
And if you want a war
Maybe now you'll see
We were best friends now in my eyes
your dead to me.

Piercing Eyes

The way that her eyes
Focus deep within
As if you're staring right into my soul
Knowing each and everything about me
Without having asked the questions

I want to freeze this moment in time
Just to keep it ours forever
We've achieved the ultimate endeavor
Now we are truly free

The way that you dance and you move
To the rhythm
The way that you close your eyes
When you're feeling the music
Oh, just to stand there and observe you being you
I get so completely lost in this moment

It must have been those piercing eyes

Everything that I do now
Is just an attempt to get the pure ecstasy
That I felt the first night we ever met 
The nervousness that I had that first night
Was almost unbearable

The way that you speak your mind
And you care what no one else thinks
You had a style all your own
Unlike anyone else that I've ever met
Could ever duplicate
We will work through the toughest of times together
No there's nothing
No nothing
That could ever stop us

Love will save our souls

Ice Cold Lips

Peeking through the burning bushes
into your eyes once more,
As i lie in state i see a face
that ive seen someplace before.

The things you said spinning through my head
like an old revolving door,
And the face comes back so jarringly,
of a girl who broke my soul and took my heart
and smashed it on the floor.

So save your letters, words don't fix
The things you crushed in this filthy mix
Your inactions describe all of this
Your heart is cold, but so is my lips.

Your eyes burn me like a stockpiled flame
I itch to scratch the scars
But it seems there's just to much pain
Like the impact of two cars.

The anger at your indecisions make me
want to smile, so get off your knees
no more begging please, im sure
you'll be back on them in a while.
Don't be mad at my opinons
though they may be Rated R,
Must be great to be so oblivious
and not really care who you are.

So save your letters, words don't fix
The things you crushed in this filthy mix
Your inactions describe all of this
Your heart is cold, but so is my lips.
So save your letters, words don't fix
The things you crushed in this filthy mix
Your inactions describe all of this
Your heart is cold, but so is my ice
frozen lips.

Feverish Encounter

Do you enjoy
Thinking about the day
You meet the one you're looking for
The prodigious chemistry
When your two eyes meet

Everything around you seemingly stops existing
But only for a moment
Except for in your own two minds

In that instance
Lasts an eternity
Or at least you wish that it could
A marvelous emotional notion isn't it
That in this instant
Everything in your life changes
All you want to do after that moment
Is to make sure that you have her for yourself

There is only one problem
She is with a group of friends
And you don't want to intrude
So you continue
To stare at each other
So intensely
All the while still pretending to listen
To the people that you happen to be with

After ten grueling minutes
Neither one of you can stand it
As she signals for you to get up
And finally meet
The hairs on the back of your necks start tingling
With an ecstatic anticipation

You walk outside
Your eyes never separate
Both of your nervousness starts to dwindle
As you feel an immediate comfort 
In each others presence
This all just has to be a dream

A smile comes over both your faces
Both or you are forever grateful
That you've been allowed
This chance encounter
Preserve this moment in your minds
For it may never happen like this again

CHASING BUTTONS

From his home-made wooden rocker my dad beckoned with his hand, 
as his wasting frame would not allow the dying man to stand 
and he handed me two buttons, that were worn and on a chain, 
then he whispered of their origins while grimacing with pain. 
 
“These two buttons were my father’s lad and from a prison shirt 
that dad wore because he’d beat a man who’d treated him like dirt. 
He was placed in solitary and that added to his shame, 
so to stay sane in that darkness … well he played this little game. 
 
“He would throw those two white buttons in the black void of that room 
and he’d search until he found them in his quest to beat the gloom. 
Yes he’d throw those two white buttons and they kept the poor man sane, 
till they finally released him and my dad came home again. 
 
“When I met your darling mother son I felt right from the start 
that this girl was something special and I knew deep in my heart 
that we’d marry and have family and son the dream came true, 
but it broke me when I lost her, after she gave birth to you. 
 
“Though I had you to remember her, I nearly lost my mind 
and I’d ask God in my darkened room why was life so unkind. 
But my dad came to the rescue and placed in my hand one day 
two white buttons and revealed to me a game he used to play. 
 
“Yes I’d throw those two white buttons in the black void of that room 
and I’d search until I found them in my quest to beat the gloom. 
Yes I’d throw those two white buttons and they somehow kept me sane 
till I found a little peace of mind and was your dad again. 
 
“Still we’ve shared a lot of years since then and son you’re now a man 
and I know you love your family and do the best you can. 
I do not have much to leave you just these worn out buttons lad 
and the knowledge that I loved you and was proud to be your dad.” 

Then his hand slumped off the rocker and dad’s spirit left that night 
and him lying there and free of pain was such a peaceful sight. 
Though at night I’d sit there in the dark, depressed and feeling blue, 
till I took to throwing buttons, just like my dad used to do.   
 
Yes I’d throw those two white buttons in the black void of that room 
and I’d search until I found them in my quest to beat the gloom. 
Yes I’d throw those two white buttons and they somehow kept me sane 
and I thanked my dad and grandpa for those buttons on that chain.

Hoochie Koochie Bop

It all starts when you walk in the door 
Men hoot and holler as you enter the floor 
Your body shakin' in all the right places 
As you look around you see the looks on the men's faces 
The music and the electricity have you pumped, you just can't stop 
You show the crowd how to Hoochie Koochie Bop 
Another hottie comes out to show you up 
You both compete to see who has the better stuff 
The gyrations, all the steamy moves 
Another hot mama enters the floor, she is well into the groove 
The crowd goes wild as a man grabs your waist 
You tell him I'm the candy you will never taste 
He asks what does it take to get what you've got 
You tell him to get off the floor, you can't Hoochie Koochie Bop 
A female approaches you and grabs your hand 
Something about this seems right, she understands 
She smiles at you, you smile right back 
You know she is only after one thing, that's a fact 
She wants to take you to her penthouse loft 
Maybe it's time for a one on one Hoochie Koochie Bop 
The dance floor feels so good, so right 
You tell her to go, you want to dance all night 
A couple more shots of tequila will do the trick 
You want to slow down, things are moving too quick 
You are flawless on the floor, no one will mock 
You are the master of the Hoochie koochie Bop

Hidden beauty we can only assume
Shining stars with a drop of rain
Smile with mask to hide my inner pain

Eyes full of life deep as a well
Your spirit is escape to this lonely hell
Give a kiss to the only one I ever love
Count my blessing thank the lord above

Tell me your secrets give me a reason to care
Share with me your hopes and dreams

SOMETHING HAS GOT TO CHANGE...

Something has got to change...
snap out of your foolish rage;
be honest with yourself,
and say," I don't want to be yours! "

Not long ago,
you adored me
like there's was 
no other man on earth;
a moment ago,
you refused to be touched;
and while I'm playing your song,
you look away...  

Something has got to change...
how come you can't breath
the same air that I breath,
and have the same needs that I have?
Why can't you,at least, feel the joy
of being loved so faithfully,
and why you hate my looks of sweetness;
don't I love you nevertheless?

Something has got to change...
our moments together
can't turn into memories:
they must live inside of us!
Something has got to change...
I laid everything at your feet,
hoping you'd keep this secret;
I offered you more than love,
and you shouldn't kick it  and step on it...
like it was a worthless stone! 
Something has got to change today...
search for kindness and pity,
and be willing to care!

Running

Always there reminding me
Your memory keeps finding me
Running seems to be the only way
Where I can learn to forget
But I really haven't started yet
Just try to make it through another day
Time's no longer an ally of mine
Storms won't stop and the sun won't shine
Guess I'm paying for all the things I've done
Spent my whole life running free
You just kept forgiving me
Someday I know my battles will be won.
I have no intention of slowing down
Keep on moving from town to town
There's always something new lying up ahead
Caught up in the pouring rain
Kind of cold but it kills the pain
Never listened to what anybody said.
A new day's dawning and I'm on the run
I'll be somewhere else when the day is done
Guess I'll be alone my whole life through
Close my eyes and I can see
A better world surrounding me
Where the sun does shine and only the sky is blue.

A LONG WAIT BY THE SILENT TELEPHONE

If I transformed myself into something
that feels no joy or expresses no feeling:
like those stones in the wilderness
that feel no warmth or coldness,
I'd get rid of this carnal lust...
not fearing what it may cost!

A long wait by the silent telephone 
is like dying slowly
without  ever knowing why;
I trusted in you like I trusted in God...
my mistake is all too believable:
I shouldn't have and spared me some misery!

I can't look out of this window
when winter covers these memories with snow;
loneliness has never been so despised 
by me as it is right now,because my joy has faded
and it won't be remembered in spring...
when all the joyful robins sing!

A long wait by the silent telephone
is giving up the little hope I have inside...
as the evening invites the angry wind 
to scatter all that was beautiful;  
I fight with my anger:  hardily seeing or learning...
losing the wisdom that brings understanding!

THE PROUD CHILDREN OF THE HEROES

Quite a few years have gone by...
like a lightening across a stormy sky,
but in their grieving hearts,so serene and bold,
there's the sympathy of the whole world!

Look at the proud children of the heroes...
those who turned tragedy into a test of faith:
remembering their loved ones
who selflessly saved countless lives... 
while fighting the relentless flames;
read their sad thoughts...stripped of all hate!

Look at the proud children of the heroes...
whispering their bitter-sweet prayers
to the kind souls that sacrificed much,
so that their dream would continue throught them!

The years will change their faces with grim,
but not the deep love they have for them;
and they are willing to risk it all,
if destiny decides for them to be so!

In Memory Of

Listen to the epitaph
reading in the papers
how they summarized
your life into one small
page.
How i burn to hear your voice
or see that smile once again
it's weird seeing your face
on the obituary's, the hurt
turning into rage.

And in your memory
i'll go on for you
and in your memory
there's nothing i wouldn't do
in your memory
i know that you'll never fade away
in your memory
i'll live on for another day.

When i was young i remember
you taking care of me, now looking
down on me, are you proud of the
person i turned out to be?
Are you that shining star in the sky
at night? Or the brightest ray of sunlight?
or was that your perfume i smelled when
the wind picked up just right? The pretty
shadow that i see?

And in your memory
i'll go on for you
and in your memory
there's nothing i wouldn't do
in your memory
i know that you'll never fade away
in your memory
i'll live on for another day.

My Sweetest Escape

In my life and times
been betrayed and been lied to
used everything just to get me 
by the nights, that were so cold
just wanted to let go, and fade away
looking for that sweet escape, but
always thinking maybe im to late.

And ive done things that im not proud of
no im far from an angel, but did i really deserve
those i cared for to let me down again?
What's so wrong with wanting a family?
They just wanted to break me through to 
the skin. Leave me here just like the animal
you treated me like to begin with. 
Seems like this might be my fate.

All my life i always wanted to feel the sweetest escape
in the arms of someone who would look me in the face
Someone who would understand that my plan
was to get away from this place.
All my life i always wanted to feel the sweetest escape
in the arms of someone who could look me in the face
Someone who would understand that where i am
bad memories are hard to erase.
All i need is your Sweetest Escape.

People used to break me down, not with
fists but with there words
till i was lying ill, fatally bleeding 
unto the floor.
But as soon as you entered my life
everything changed, and nothing
felt painful anymore. As you took my
hand, and led me out of darknesses
door.

And with you there's finally hope
a new place i know i can cope
and be here, not scared of being
pushed back down, broken down
to my core.
And i know you'd never hurt me
because i know that's just not you
In the darkness i just couldn't see
until the love you shined led me
right to you.

All my life i always wanted to feel the sweetest escape
in the arms of someone who would look me in the face
Someone who would understand that my plan
was to get away from this place.
All my life i always wanted to feel the sweetest escape
in the arms of someone who could look me in the face
Someone who would understand that where i am
bad memories are hard to erase.
All i need is your Sweetest Escape.

Tell Me

Your blue eyes
They stand out amongst so many
Leading me down the path to your true self

Will you let me in

To search for the real you
Listen to the secrets that you dare not tell a soul

Would you let me in

Trying to figure you out
To really understand who you are
Learn all those little quirks and all
You know,
Those little things that everyone does
That we just keep to ourselves
Are you ready to expose
All these little untold covert experiences
 
Attempt to let me in

You have kept to yourself
For way too long
And now it's time
For you to unleash your feelings
And your thoughts
To someone that you know you can trust
What is said amongst two lovers
Should be universally known
Not to share with another
If they just wanted to tell anyone
Then there would not be
That connection
Or that satisfaction
When they finally tell you
Everything

Recollections

This is what I remember
When I think of you
It's as if I'm flying
Limitless unbound

Lifted spirits
Dilated eyes
Quintessential love

I envision those flowers
So perfectly placed in your hair
As we dance the night away

Forgetting all that is wicked
Relief beyond belief
Memories of evenings shared
Staring at the stars
Enthralled by precious moon lit skies
Those next mornings
And the way your eyes
Appear the second you awaken
Soft smiles between us both
As your genuine heart
Radiates oh so immensely

Completely sharing
These special moments
Committed to sharing equal roles
Getting a chance to explore
And discover
What you really want in life

That was my chance
But I blew it

Should have seized
And fully absorbed
Those times as precious
As those cozy
Refreshing mornings

What she said

She looked at me with a smile
im pregnant is what she said
What ive wanted all the while
being a father going through my head
But when she told me she miscarried
my fist banged into the floor
And in the corner head in my knees buried
as my hopes had flew out of the door.

Wasn't i good enough to be a dad
or was it just not my right
All the fights they got so bad
Until i finally saw the light
You lied about the babies
Never pregnant at all
Holding my hopes up to my head like a gun
so i would feel like leaving anymore.
How could you do this to me?
I ask myself this today
Do you know how hard it was for me?
Visiting a grave where no baby was contained?

She said, and she lied
All these times
Just to get me to stay.
She said it over and over
And each time it would sting
And the pain never goes away.

She used this line more times
i was to immature
She told me the details of what
they all looked like
Loved to always see me hurt
And take away all my fight.
Breaking my heart so many times
Let my dreams and hopes to die
Are you happy with yourself?
Making up things now to someone else?
As of this moment i am done with you
Apologize if you must there's nothing you can do.
Even though there were no babies i still honor those that died.
Placing little race cars and flowers on the stones of those
who just fought but couldn't survive.

She said, and she lied
All these times
Just to get me to stay.
She said it over and over
And each time it would sting
And the pain never goes away.

THE AGONY OF MY REGRET

We could have been the perfect pair,
love openly without a care;
secrets, not lies, made me more aware and sad!
You were already committed to someone else,
had kids and a handsome husband
within your reach;
the only missing link
was someone with crafted hands...
someone who could make you dream!

The agony of my regret 
is something I could never forget;
look at you:  you are happy,
and don't need me
to take you to the fartest star,
because you've everything...
and I have nothing!
The agony of my regret hurts in many ways,
and will follow me through my blue nights:
when I stare at the dimmest stars
too distant for me to be reached...
wishing it was you I touched!

We could have loved a lifetime, make
everything easy and wonderful...paint
our rainbows with beautiful colors;
lie beneath the most peaceful skies,
interweave ourselves in warm embraces
and forever dream in a meadow of daises!

Are You Ready For Christmas?

Are you ready for Christmas~have you lifted the tree
Are your lights through Christ shining bright~for everybody to see
				(everybody should see)

Your good deeds and your gifts of love~that you're presenting to Him
And they'll praise God above for His Son~the gift He's given to them


Are you ready for Christmas~will you surprise Him this year
With the harvest of love and faith~bidding others come near
				(bid all others come near)

To the banquet of Christ the King~don't let your candles grow dim
In the room of your heart prepared~because this day is for Him


Now are you ready for Christmas~carolling of His birth
Retelling Jesus' death to life~til He returns to this earth
				(He'll return to this earth)

With His angels and trump of God~forever we'll be with Him
So share this joy with the world like the shepherds of Bethlehem

Live Free

When you look deep into my eyes
Tell me what do you see
Am I the man that you claim is your destiny

Illustrate a picture for me in your mind
Of where you see us in five, ten, or even twenty years

Are you still with me

At long last an unsurpassed feeling must outlast
Thoughts of you put the mind at ease
Allowing me to live free

Blue-green waters
Sea so fierce
Distant winds whispering nonchalantly
Amongst the serene breeze
Waves becoming increasingly rapid
Clashing, Creating colossal waves

Gazing at the infinite horizon
Amazed by its spectacular openness
So vast and seemingly unending 

This right here is paradise

The sublime feeling of the cool sand beneath your feet
Take a deep breath
It smells like absolute freedom
Watching the skies turn from blue to orange
Colors shifting ever so slowly

all the many colors in a rainbow

ALL THE MANY COLORS

The colors are in all of us
We can see the color in our hearts
We may feel apart but we are not
For all the colors merge like a prism of light 
Ohhhh so bright

CHORUS
Rain.. Rain.. Rain on me Rainbow 
rain your shower of light like a beautiful bow
I see the multi-colors shine bright
From with in.. Don't give in
To this black and white muldane world
Shine your light bright with your rain….booow

See the promise land the road leads into 
Your heart we are never apart
When you climb life's trails
Climb into my heart..there
You will be safe.. be not afraid

CHORUS

When there is dark clouds..
Remember the blue ones behind it
Don't fret when the storm blows over
You have my promise in the blue sky alright

CHORUS
Love you my Jesus.. thank you for the rainbow in my heart

Your Body Can Break a Man's Bank

I look around and it is you I see 
A girl who is a stock market catastrophe 
You are a high risk investment that won't pay out 
You put on your makeup like bathroom grout 
I have no idea where you fall in the official rank 
But your body can break a man's bank 
So what you have changed the color of your hair 
Your personality is a car without it's spare 
Keep in mind, this is just me and my point of view 
You are that piece of meat spit out because it was too tough to chew 
You are the left over beer that wasn't drank 
But your body can break a man's bank 
Your face is like a painting that looks good from far away 
Men still flock around you to my dismay 
You are the results of an out of hand prank 
But your body can break a man's bank 
The perfume is not hiding the fact that you don't bathe 
That tells me it's not cuddle time you crave 
I give up, be straight with me 
You are from the gutter, but men treat you like the queen bee 
In a word game, your brain is the blank 
But your body can break a man's bank

listen to the colors

Inside my head in my brain is a gob stopper 
The candy center can hide my pain
The different colors control me be to be sane
Today I’m sad and blue tomorrow I might be red on fire

Listen to the colors

Imagine playing twister inside your head
Spin a color to effect everything you’ve said

Have gotten so tired that you got wired on caffeine
Then you heard talking in your head
That you not too sure you said

x3 I’m not paranoid 

Isolated in my mind
I’m sure here what I’ll find
This world we live in can be so unkind
Rewind back to what I heard
When I’m alive they try and tell me I’m dead

X3 I’m not paranoid 

The more I think the more I say
Things aren’t supposed to be this way
You feel alone and up tight
When your sunshine day turns into a black night

Racing thoughts turned blood red to stop in my brain dead
As the colors change I begin to numb the pain

A little smoke to keep me sane 

X3 I’m just paranoid

There’s got to be another way.
To calm my thoughts and they say
Smoking this herb can’t be the only answer
My stress eats at my body like a cancer
How do I escape the problems in my mind?

X2 I find I have to talk about it.
 
X3 I used to be paranoid 
Now I’m just annoyed
(Sung slowly to close song) inside my head my brain is just a gob stopper.

A spot of tea for you and me
It makes me ever so happy to see you today
Smile on your face gives me meaning and grace.
I have lost all track of time and place

Sweet sugar in my tea you’re the sweet sugar for me

A tea set reminds me of my inner child
Your beauty makes me go wild
More sugar yes please more sugar for me
Your sweet and kind you help me unwind

Sweet sugar in my tea you’re the sweet sugar for me

I kiss your soft lips it makes me smile
Drink my tea only for a while with you
Earl grey one more please stay don’t walk away
No words left to say I love you

Demon

Dream away the sickness
Choking down the pain
Reach into the darkness
Dancing in the rain

Nurse the innocence
Into another place
Hold them close till they cry out
I find another face

Wet nightmares
This perverted lust is never gone
Dancing with my demons 
In tangled webs of dawn

If it dares to bleed
This plaything in my arms
I reach into the void
Peel back brittle shards

Drunken, careless words of comfort
Gorge on strangled fears
Gripping locks of mangled hair
Should you ever show your tears

Wet nightmares
This perverted lust is never gone
Dancing with my demons 
In tangled webs of dawn

Through a tangled web of demons
And this hideous taste of blood
He will comb the night for his prey
Through deep and endless mud

over a coarse of time

Seems I’ve reminisced 
The feel
Of a home cooked meal
Ducking the pleasures 
Of a sainted veil 
A clause in the end
From which finer things appeal
Black jack matches not
To a fisher mans luck
On an antique reel
But on the real
The expectations in this life
Remain a comfort 
That refuses to chill
Let your thoughts rest 
On an old lads chest 
Considering the circumstances
If we make it 
We can all attest 
And adore this political mess 
If not then as victims of stress 
Unblessed in this planet 
Of slanted chess
We’ll confess

Another night
Another days passes 
Do you find it lovely 
How nothing ever last
But many men have cured
Their fascination 
Of becoming non minute men
Flawed by incarceration
Deep within the dungeons 
Of a  softer conscience
In irregular form
A veteran lies victim
Of defeated white blood cells
Unresponsive 
A child with no home 
And swollen tonsils 
The dark settles 
Flashbacks meddle 
Trouble around the corner 
As a lunch line unveils 
Never was a fighter 
Just a swinger 
As I found myself catapulted against 
The cafeteria wall
The integrity 
My sucker punch instilled 
Broken glass jaws 
Over a 4th grade meal
Or mainly just an individual 
Twice the size of me 
With an inability to feel
I sat still 
As the principal sought 
A stern punishment
Not as astonished with 
The other kids compliments
For my stomach ache
From a lack of warm condiments 

Moral of the story  is 
I was fighting then
I’m still fighting now
Obstacles tend to ware me down
The inexperience of my peers 
Seem to no longer enlighten me now
Have to find new ways to learn
Or disappear into the unclear
Fatigued as a writer
Tend to want to touch on subjects 
Closer to lighter
Symptoms of a September baby
A Virgo born of a harlot 
With nine children unknown 
A none buffalo soldier
A phantom on a Harley
The ghost of Robert Marley
An astronaut in my younger years
Screaming for Apollo thirteen
As the thunder neared 
Off my coarse of inspiration 
I veered

two lovers

Spark of light in pitch black room
This place of solitude becomes a tomb
Reading writings of great people of the past
Get stuck in a moment forever to last

Open your sweet lips to kill the silence
Two lovers meet by moonlight to fill empty hearts

Piece of pain silent and still
My spirit builds a life of free will
a harmony of notes sound soft to my ear
Inside of a beating heart like a drum I hear

Open your sweet lips to kill the silence
Two lovers meet by moonlight to fill empty hearts

Passion of love echoes through my lips
Above two loves walls hold secrets no one hears
Two lovers in each others arms for years
Two lovers close share their fears
Sitting close they wipe each other’s tears

Open your sweet lips to kill the silence
Two lovers meet by moonlight to fill empty hearts

Bubba Spent the Night

Our son asked can a friend stay over
He just moved here from dover
The friend says tonight's Friday, usually we have pig's innards
He says my name is Cleetus Billy Joe Jim Bob Jones, after he stutters out his 
name, it's time for dinner
But you can call me Bubba, he seems very polite
I pray no nightmares as Bubba spends the night
I tell him we are having Makerel Cakes and Mac and Cheese
He says I will take four cakes and two helpings if you please
Boy you sure do have an appetite
I tell my son our budget won't allow Bubba to ever again spend the night
Soon dinner is over and Bubba still wants to eat
I grab a funnel and melted bacon fat and tell him to have a seat
He says we eat fatback soup sometimes on a weekday
He tells me the doctor tells his whole family, that sometime their arteries will turn 
to clay
bubba says I don't eat for calories, I eat for taste
I tell Bubba, if you keep eating like that you will become hazardous waste
He laughs and cheers in delight
This all happened when Cleetus Billy Joe Jim Bob Jones spent the night
At 2 am he asks for a snack
I give him a sleeve of Ritz crackers and a pound of Monterey Jack
I hand him a jar of Grey Puopon
He says after I eat this, there may be trouble in your john
He smiles and asks for a Diet Coke
I try to watch my health, I don't drink or smoke
Eight more hours, then our budget will be alright
He asks when is the next time I can spend the night

Forgiving

Destiny is going to shelter us all
(at least that's what we grew up telling ourselves)

When do we release the safety cord and settle down?
Where have the songs and the glowing fireflies gone?

Black, like the ash that once soared like an ember,
We all take the plunge from the open window of this interstate
(i will show you the country and all its secrets)
From this fog I can seem like anything you want me to be
I give up on my own dreams
I gave up on the old scenes
I'm the staring role in the candid secrets you're too ashamed to have had

Good night glass goddess
I won't ever find the time to treat you to my lies
(but that was all that kept you here)

I'm more alone now than I ever want to admit
I'm a smiling ball of hollow hopes and tragic shows
(forgiveness is giving up hope on a better past)

lonely friends

I'm staring down a dirt road,
nothing for miles on either side of me.
I notice, I am alone.
Completly alone.
But alas I am not!
There is the wind, 
gracefully dancing about keeping me entertained.
And the earth,
strong and sturdy, there to catch me should I fall.
Then there are all the creatures, 
big and small, filled with more gossip than the trees, 
always there to keep my mind at ease.
How could I forget when they were there all along.
They've always been there helping me,
when ever I need them.
Some people are just blind to those kinds of things I suppose.
To consumed in all their own loneliness to 
remember whats just outside the door.
'Cause your never completly alone.

LOSING WHAT'S NOT MINE

Escaping reality
seems the only way
to really feel free;
lying back on a soft meadow,
looking up to see
the scarlet moon 
rushing against another shadow...
before the coming of dawn!

Losing what's not mine,
its very hard of letting go,
because it took more
that faith to get where I am...
and only be left with pride! 

I took a forgotten dream,
and turned it into a vision:
to set the mood of passion...
to steadly touch, not just feel!

Losing what' not mine
makes me doubt the meaning 
of those unconvincing words;
how did I fell for a lie so unforgiving,
too unpleasant to be remembered by time... 
to which everything belongs?

Every star has gone to another sky,
and the pale moon won't leave;
how should I forget about Eve,
if I have no strength to cry?

THE SMALLEST KINDNESS

Everyone will have
more love in themselves,
if only they showed
the smallest kindness;
and smiled at each other
like sister and brother!

Only one man in all History
made that ultimate sacrifice...
such a short life
lived in holiness:
to show our hopeless Humanity
its new, wonderful destiny!

If flowers grow by sunlight,
we, too, can grow by faith...
and be as beautiful as they are at night;
If stars are admired for their beauty,
and speak to us of eternity...
we should be brighter than their light!

There's never anything wrong
when it comes to giving of oneself,
because compassion is measured by love...
even the smallest kindness can be so immense;
and they are no doubts when a joyful heart is sure:
nothing could be purer!

Honey Wagon

It makes it's run in the afternoons Monday through Friday 
At 3pm it will be coming your way 
It's not a ride for all to enjoy 
It's mainly for the girls, just a few boys 
But one female's heart is draggin' 
Ms. Betty ponders the question I don't know why he won't give me a ride in the 
honey wagon 
The men that receive their ride know their ranking in the food chain 
First rule, men get in the back, sit down, shut up and don't be a pain 
A new girl started today, her name is Megan 
One of the guys has to go, to open a seat for her in the honey wagon 
When someone is not at the pick up area, the seat remains unoccupied 
For the men there is a lot of red tape to qualify for a ride 
Who will be the next guy with the right to be braggin' 
Fred wants to know when will his name be coming on the list to ride in the honey 
wagon 
Today it is running late 
The honeys know it is a long walk to the gate 
If it takes a man to be a prince and slay a dragon 
He will do any thing for the honor to ride in the honey wagon

She comes in just before 6:30 
Donald's ride will never be early 
Their relationship is not kept under cover 
She calls him her big brother 
Now they both drive a 300, Donald says his is better 
There is nothing like the smell of leather 
Zena keeps hers cleaner, it holds more shine 
She has a nickname I gave her, Z Lovely 39 
She starts to freeze when the temperature dips below 79 
Her heater is on full blast most of the time 
Palmetto bugs, spiders and snakes 
Zena will run a mile a minute to escape 
Donald said he is thinking about moving his desk out in the warehouse to keep 
from walking back and forth 
5-2-9 suggests Donald buy some Dr. Scholl's cushioned insoles to prevent his

Zena just got her new clothing catalog from 1-800-SO-FINE 
It was addressed to her exclusively, Z Lovely 39

Donald will spend most of his day by her desk, comes as no surprise 
He has romantic visions tumbling like a dryer in his mind 
He will always big brother to Z Lovely 39

Dark Chocolate On White Chocolate

Dark Chocolate On White Chocolate
Dark Chocolate On White Chocolate
Dark chocolate Her brazilian body
Melting
My White Chocolate soul
As the stimulation
Begins
Soft supple hands 
Exploring my every inch
Hunting
For my secluded secret prize package
Plump 'tween your thighs
Releasing
The heat of my temple 
Sweeter
Than a Hershey's kiss
The taste of her lips
As she softly kisses me 
Giving me pleasure beyond measure
Beyond This world
Entering another
Simultanouesly
The phantasy
Like a drug
I'm Addicted 
To her dark brazilian chocolate
Her sweet parfume
Rich and strong 
Taking me to ecstasy
All night long
Her love is my song

Where The Wind Shall Lead Me

I am set to surrender and give in once again
to the restlessness that is pushing from within
and telling me to leave behind the people I love
to sail thousand miles to where black gold flows.

Now I stand by the door with bags in my hands
to board my lonely ship, cross the wide ocean.
So sorry to leave but undaunted just the same,
I will soon be on my way, I’d soon be far away.

Oh, I may sometimes stop to catch my breath
when this tired, old heart says it’s had enough.
But I know I would be up and moving again,
going where the wind shall lead  me.

For how could I hold this force beating deep inside,
how do I stop myself from chasing its crazy dreams,
how could I not tread on the road leading out yonder,
when the drum starts to beat, won’t I answer its call?

Well, here I am in this cruel and barren desert
stretching my luck and braving the killing heat.
I don’t know when this wandering finally ends
but who cares! isn’t this what life is all about?

now breath breath not bleed no more

cant find yourself lost in the light
cower in the shadows of a broken fairy tale
reeling like an adict from another worthless fix
freezing in the rain as the stars are screaming

withdraw to the place where you call home
where hate becomes dispare where your veins are bleeding
sweet rapture of life ending here tonight

the powers of pain lust and greed no use for you no use indeed
spining round we hit the ground and prolapse on the carpet
break the glass and shake your xxxx what was worthless is now mine 

i call to you you look at me and then to them
the haunting shadows that trapped you for so long 
now vanish into the wind
now breath breath not bleed no more

I WILL WRITE END

This very minute,I will write end
at the bottom of my last song;
it's better to cry more tears
than hanging on on silly fears!

Only once we screamed in passion,
then we grew further apart;
we saw the beautiful sunset,
now we see an ugly sunrise,
and it hurts more to realize 
that I've been wrong twice...
and there's no hope for redemption!

I was drawn to you by a strong need,
throwing away my chance with others;
the only sunlight I saw was in you alone...
my quick downfall didn't take that long!
You talked kindly and sweetly,
coloring my big dreams brightly...
taking me to the bluest sky
that a lover could ever see; 
I soared with you...just feeling happy, 
not thinking I looked through the eyes
of an unsuspecting and deceived fool... 
winding with the speed of a spool!  

I will write end
with the sadness of a betrayed heart,
breaking down...to fill up
the banks of an empty river;
I will write end
to never remember you ever loved me,
or were a part  of my existence...
your memory will disappear in an instant!

Dylan Thomas

I know you will miss me life 
“As I go so gently into this night”

In our final hours 
We lay as possums 
Not but never
Will the limbs of this flower blossom
You held life so kindly 
I only ask was it trust
And if so 
Shall we continue to reach for the shadow behind us

I know you will miss me life 
“As I go so gently into this night”

I now bleed 
For I believe
My surroundings breathe 
Upon thy curse of me
From the belly of pompous we will continue to grow
And as for our spectators 
On to hell, with what they know
This is the curse of comfort
Shall we be lain in the final blown trumpet 
 
I know you will miss me life
“As I go so gently into this night”

Beer Money, Wine Taste

If you could read my mind you'd know that I'd never talk
And if I could stretch a mile you'd know that I'd never walk
But I've got to get up to go to work to my nine to five
To keep the pace in this rat race I have to survive
But this minimum wage pay will never help me out Lord
So I need more cause I want more than I can afford

(Channel)
Cause all my friends are driving Benz's and wearing expensive clothes
With bigger houses and finer foods so this is my status in quo

I've got beer money, I've got wine taste
Can you see it in my eyes, its written on my face
Give me this, give me that and I don't want to wait
But I've got beer money, I've got wine taste
And uh~ beer money, and uh~ wine taste
Always make me wanna haste but that leads to waste
So I'm praying for some patience and little more grace
With my~ beer money and my~ wine taste         (Chorus)

But my money and my patience's short, the line is long 
And when things start looking right in life what's left is wrong
I need extra strength this and I need fast relief that
Someone call western union hurry cause I need some cash
To pay my debts and all my bills, I'm planning to buy a lot
Because I'm always wanting something that I just don't got

(Channel)
Cause all my friends are driving Benz's and wearing expensive clothes
With bigger houses and finer foods so this is my status in quo

I've got beer money, I've got wine taste
Can you see it in my eyes, its written on my face
Give me this, give me that and I don't want to wait
But I've got beer money, I've got wine taste
And uh~ beer money, and uh~ wine taste
Always make me wanna haste but that leads to waste
So I'm praying for some patience and little more grace
With my~ beer money and my~ wine taste         (Chorus)


(Bridge)
I need designer hats and jeans,
A limousine on the scene
To keep up with the Jones;
I need some precious stones.
I want to be in the spotlight
In restaurants day and night
With the means to these ends nonstop;
I wanna be filthy rich so I can shop.

(Chorus)

Moving on by pretending it never happened

That night I left I was totally sure
I was happy we wouldn't’t argue anymore


Checking my e-mails just to see your name


Reflections in water are blurred and distorted
My mind is no different with happiness retorted


Checking my e-mails just to see your name


The water of my emotions runs clear
There is nothing to taint the memories I hold dear


Checking my e-mails just to see your name


But that’s not true what about the lies and fights
I wish I could hate you and stop imagining this saint

Its time to move on
Delete out box, in box and unsent

Sing A Song Of People

Sing a song of people
Walking fast or slow;
People in the city
Up and down they go.

People with their hats on,
Going in the doors.
People with umbrellas
When it rains and pours.
People in tall buildings
And in stores below;
Riding elevators,
Up and down they go.

People walking singly,
People in a crowd;
People saying nothing,
People talking loud.
People laughing,smilling,
Grumpy people too;
People who just hurry,
And never look at you!

Sing a song of people
Who like to come and go;
Sing of city people
You see but never know!

BLUEY'S REFLECTIONS

Blue was feeling melancholy and was far from feeling jolly 
by the window of his quarters on that moonlight night in May. 
The old mate was broken hearted since young Jess and he had parted: 
that’s the Jillaroo from Bancroft who had jilted him that day. 
 
And old Blue would really miss ‘er, as she was a bonzer kisser, 
and he told this to a large green frog perched on the window ledge. 
This poor Ringer quite horrid, as his hand held up his forehead, 
and he gave the frog the run down like it was some privilege. 
 
“Do you have a girlfriend, froggy,  that just leaves your mind all foggy 
when she puckers up to kiss you and she makes you feel on high? 
As a kisser Jess was real hot and I reckon by a long shot  
she was up there with the best of them … except perhaps for Di. 
 
“She’s the blonde girl that’s a Nanny, on the place where my mate Danny 
breaks in horses every summer, and a looker, that’s for sure.  
Mate, this Di she was a goer and I’m glad I got to know ‘er, 
as that girl could suck your lips off and she’d leave you wanting more. 
 
“But we broke up in the summer, which I thought was a real bummer, 
so I hitched up with her cousin who’d come out to stay a while. 
This gal was a city floozie and her name I think was Suzie 
and her tongue it darned near choked me, but she certainly had style. 
 
“Then she went back to the city, which I thought was a real pity, 
still, I met young Katie Swenson at the rodeo that night. 
Sucking face was that girl’s passion, but I soon went out of fashion, 
as I found she kissed near anything that came within her sight. 
 
“So it’s hard, mate, just to pick one that I fancied as the best fun, 
as they all bring back fond memories but they all slipped through my grip.” 
He just sat there quite dejected and it came quite unexpected 
when a moth alighted on the top of poor old Bluey’s lip. 

The frog’s tongue flew into action, but his aim was down a fraction 
and it rattled the old tonsils in the back of Bluey’s throat. 
The old Ringer’s eyes went teary and his sight went kind of bleary 
and the words that bushman uttered I’m afraid I cannot quote. 
 
To this day it’s told by bush folk and believe me, this is no joke, 
it is ritual when Bluey goes to town and hits the grog, 
that he tells the same sick story, how no girls can match the glory 
of that moonlight night in May when he was tongue-kissed by a frog.

A Test Of Your Courage

Constant assurance
a test of your courage
a gauge of emotions and trust

Tell me you need it 
and never want to leave it
this is how I feel love
its not lust

He tells me he loves me 
I question it, does he?
I can't help but fall for it
I must

I'm starting to lose it 
because this heart you just use it 
you've extinguished my soul with
one gust

Indepth of Others

For those of you 
With your arms above me
For those of you
Whom continuously love me 

I never felt like I was at peace
No matter what
There's always 
This emptyness inside
This overwhelming lease 
No matter what I do 
What ever I go through 
I just can not seem to fill 
This estranged opening
This subtle cloaking 
People 
Pat me on the back 
People 
Tell me they love me 
Some reach out 
more than others
Unexpected brothers 
But I can't find peace
Even as a child 
The only happiness 
I've ever known 
Is seeing another smile 
Like a ghost
I've become ever so close
My solution becomes
When you're lost 
You're found 
I guess people are human
And they will let you down

Everything is Jolly

Everything is jolly
As we string the walls {with lights} 
And frolic in the snow
Everything is jolly
As we deck the halls {tonight}
With holly and mistletoe  (Chorus)

Oh, out in the snow
Along the sides of our little house
As the winter sun glowed
I put up the lights with my spouse
Then she said, "There he goes"
As I climbed to the top of the tree
To cut the mistletoe
She gathered it and sung along with me

(Chorus)

Oh, out in the snow
Along the sides of our little house
As the noon sun glowed
We trimmed the holly to make boughs
Then we took some old clothes
And put them on our frosty man
She laughed and began to throw
Balls of snow and around the yard she ran

As I gave chase
We fell with sweet expressions
In that place
Made two angel impressions
Then hand in hand 
We kissed like happy Eskimos
Then from this winter wonderland
We went inside to warm our toes

(Chorus)

Oh, under the mistletoe
Surrounded by holly in our little house
As the Christmas tree glowed
I sat at the table with my child and spouse
With a centerpiece, a rose
We thanked the Reason for the Season above
For food, shelter and clothes
Because better is a little than a lot without love

Dedicated to Chrissy

America God Is Asking You To Call

 
America, God is asking you. to call before 
into the hands of the hated one you will fall.
Yes America please look to God as He wants 
us just to pray even if we are walking in a mall.
0 America, it makes no difference where we are 
In the field or with our mends having a ball.
My goodness we can be in a small place of worship 
or in a. in a great cathedrals very spacious hall..
We just need to remember that we have a loving 
God and unto His name He just want us to call.

Side-Kicks

Rabbit was my turtle who never won a race
Red is my fish but he's blue in the face
And I love my pets but they do no tricks
So I play all day and sleep at night with my sidekicks

My sidekicks~ Wa! Cha!  My sidekicks~ Wa! Cha!
Sometimes we stand on bricks, play swords with sticks
Sometimes we have tools for fixin', lollipops for lickin'
But when it's time quit and switch, they're still my fav clique
My sidekicks~ Wa! Cha!  My sidekicks~ Wa! Cha!   (Chorus)

Smokey is my cat and I love him too
Got a little kitty, named her Crystal blue
And another fish in a bowl I call Fins
But they do no tricks, so I play with my sidekicks again

I got Teddy and Roy and my bulldog Bully
And at bath time I get to dunk my pal Sully
Then there's Croc but is he an alligator
And Fishy is orange, before I see you later
I gotta tell ya Mr. Duck is now Mr. Quacks
But my favs of all time is Tang Tang and Scratch

And though they're stuffed animals~ they do all the tricks
Like my play friend Jerry- they're my sidekicks

Cruisin' With My Homies On Four Doughnuts

Love is not the answer to every issue out there 
There are choices brunettes, blondes or curly hair 
So we pile in my car to go check them out 
They look at us laugh and shout 
I'ts so obvious what's so funny, this really shows it 
Cruisin' with my homies on four doughnuts 
Three homies and I are burning some gas 
I am stressed, I just ran over some glass 
The tires stay firm, do not go flat 
You can't explain something like that 
Big Bertha asks for a ride, but with her weight, the car just won't hold it 
She will not be cruisin' with me and the homies on four doughnuts 
Stop at the store to get some brews 
Out of Colt 45 so the Bulls will have to do 
We catch a nice buzz, good enough to make me smile 
Fuel will be a concern in a few more miles 
After the beer, we combine our pocket change 
I payed for the beer and the gas, isn't that strange 
Girls can now be our main focus 
My tires are from a Ford, Chevy, Dodge and a Lotus 
It's always an adventure with me and the homies cruisin' on four doughnuts

For in the times-

EVA,DON'T TURN THEM ON...

Some ladies need to be protected,
they're nice to hold...oh, so true!
And it's for sure they can give you anything,
but they also take everything back from you!

Eva is a lovely,sensitive woman
who loses all control;
she has won
so many,many foolish hearts,but
finding just the right one
is her goal...

Eva,don't turn them on...
what man wouldn't give in?
Eva, don't turn them on:
stay beside me,and let's be one!

'Though they pretend not
to pay attention...
you're the one
they mention;
so, Eva, don't turn them on:
stick to one!

Silly conversations,
cigarettes and brandy
are the dangers
you don't realize;
don't act like a baby...
can't stay away from candy!
You are the one they want
to be beside...

Eva,don't turn them on...
what man wouldn't give in?
Eva,don't turn them on...
stay beside me,and let's be one!

THIS LOVER IS NOT A QUITTER

At my surprise,I've discovered
that in the depth
of this doubt:
there's an intense liking
that keeps me wondering
whether or not
to bring it out
with an incredible shout!

I wouldn't turn
a good thing down
and proclaim this lover
is not a quitter:
when an honest face
strikes me with joy and excitement,
I don't have the simplest 
reason to pretend or not
to have heard that mysterious name
in some other place!

Anxious to find out
how many words or sounds
make up that memorable sentence
that can't hold down my obstinence
from the purest desire pounding inside
this fearful chest...
hiding the most truthful heart!

Would I deny myself the joy
of being indulgent
and disclaim that this lover
is not a quitter
to those who have more doubts
than an ounce of pity?
Envious eyes laid on me...
can't change or threat anything
I offer with honesty;
nothing can destroy this ego,
it is my glorious destiny to give love
and make a woman's heart sing!

WITH SOMEBODY AS KIND AS YOU

Why am I being too impatient,
wishing to have again what
can make me feel that something? 
Why do I have to put away
all that I cherished,so dearly,
about  you and your way of giving?

You should have been:
my only idol,the only face
to appear in these night dreams;
someone who made
all these dull moments bright
and allowed me to fly without wings;
because no other heart 
loved me more than yours,
because no other eyes
smiled at me more than yours!


With somebody as kind as you
to give everything to, I refuse
to believe in someone else;
and I will gladly wait 
than throw everything to the wind!
With somebody as kind as you,
there's a better reason
to live life in delightful days!

You should have been my only light  
to chase away this cold darkness;
I have waited...shivering in thick shadows,
hoping to feel your warm fire...
to rekindle my lost desire!
I have searched and found the dim moonlight:
giving me no warmth,no hope...
offering me no words to speak
with somebody as kind as you;
only the sad smile of the unfriendly moon....

Wings to Fly

If I had wings to fly
I would surely fly away
To a desert time and place
So none could find my face
If I had wings to fly
I would soar above the clouds
Far from here and now
To where? To there somehow
If I had wings to fly

If I had wings to fly
I would fly to be alone
Where nothing could go wrong
And I would sing my song
If I had wings to fly
I would mount above the world
To escape your winds that whirl
And the stones of boys and girls
If I had wings to fly

If I, If I had wings to fly, I would view from a bird's eye
How lonely you and I would be when doves fly, doves cry
If I, If I had wings to fly I would view from a bird's eye
How lonely you and I would be when doves cry, doves die  (Chorus)

If I had wings to fly
I'd fly right back to truth
To a place of hope with you
Where we could start anew
If I had wings to fly
I'd make my flight complete
And take you high with me
For all the world to see
If I had wings to fly

If I had wings to fly
I'd not fly away again
For I was wrong there and then
I won't wish for where I've been
If I had wings to fly
I'd give my wings to you
For your love for me is proved
And our love can not be moved
Even if I had wings to fly

Life Insurance

The countdown has begun 
Tomorrow night at the setting of the sun 
The government has me being punished for something I didn't do 
I pray the same thing doesn't happen to you 
I've insisted you have the wrong man 
I have life insurance money of 200 grand 
I told her to divorce me and move on 
I will be six feet under in two more dawns 
I requested lethal injection, but they are giving me the chair 
I have always had trouble, but this is my worst to compare 
Tomorrow at this time they will announce dead man walking 
Between the governor and my lawyer, I hope there is some talking 
During a time like this, I wonder where is our maker 
I must be prepared to see the undertaker 
I have requested my last meal 
Some chops and ribs fresh from a grill 
Now I must say good bye, it's my time to go 
The preacher tells me may the Lord have mercy on your soul 
I have always had a fear for the unknown 
As the minutes pass by, it has grown 
I will now say my final prayer 
At the pearl gates, hopefully my soul will arrive there 
As my wife enjoys the insurance money 
Life sometimes isn't so funny

THE COST OF LIVING

Without hesitation
I'm compelled to listen to you;
I can't insist...you
owe nothing of mine!
Suddenly I lose, you win...
for the cost of living
has a price for anything!

I thought it was all over...when I
heard from you,
"I'll stay!"...Poor me,
I hadn't let you know...although
the price I knew you
would have asked, and
in place of a tender heart: 
a rock!

Whicht act says generosity...
which means certainty?
And I believed it was all over,
and once and for all I surrender;
the cost of living...
has a price for anything!

Endeavered Thoughts

When it’s all over 
The world’s gone cry
When it’s all said and done
The world’s gone miss me in life

When my beds lay remains before the sun
The tribulations 
In which we each triumph
My tragic fall 
The steps that keep me running from home
The righteousness that evades 
As I slowly trespass into the wrong
The mistakes I achieve 
They allow me 
To continue writing song after song
When there is no further distance 
Than the unknown in which we roam 
When no eyes are upon you 
Yet the world knows everything in all
My very existence matters not
I welcome you to my end 
My suspending fall

Loud Cries and Tears

Jesus offered up prayers and petitions
And He was heard for His reverent submission
But His quiet times were not so quiet in His years
He made His requests known with loud cries and tears
	Unto God who would save Him from premature death
	And for those who needed grace and life Jesus wept
	Unto God who gave Him power and love to cast out fears
	Jesus supplicated with strong crying and tears  [Chorus]

Stir up your spirit like an eagle, get unsettled
Get alone with God all night like the time when Jacob wrestled
He groaned until the morning, He held on and overcame
All his struggles, he was blessed and given a better name

Men ought to pray always and never faint
Being alert and praying for all the saints
On every occasion giving God no rest
With all kinds of prayers and requests

[Chorus]

Raise your voices like Apostles until the place is shaken
Pray til something happens for the cause undertaken
Like Elijah prayed seven times for the dry land
The abundant rain poured from a cloud like a hand

Jesus offered up prayers and petitions
And He was heard for His reverent submission
But His quiet times were not so quiet in His years
He made His requests known with loud cries and tears
	Unto God who would save Him from premature death
	And for those who needed grace and life Jesus wept
	Unto God who gave Him power and love to cast out fears
	Jesus supplicated with strong crying and tears  [Chorus]

Red Necks

The deer is a warm and fresh road kill
Will go good with the moonshine from your still
That red neck life style you will always have
Red Necks don't have to have a reason to be mad
You feel that on taxes you always get screwed
Hunting animals doesn't take a mood
Not accepting others for who they are
Gas guzzling huntin' trucks, there are no cars
Your baby never given a passy
Just a hunk of tobbacky
You spit your tobbacky juice in a mason jar
Fertilize the grass, so you empty it in the yard
A bathroom is where you make it
In the bed of your truck, you and your old lady got caught naked
You brag to the Reds at work about your latest run in with the cops
A few beers later, it's time to raid the Goodwill box
As a bona fide Red Neck it is your life's mission
To pass these quality traits to your son, it's a tradition
Red Necks in the south are a dime a dozen
Most marry their next of kin, usually their cousins
Support your local Red Neck, the bumper sticker reads
It fine print it's local chapter 233
In the parking lot outside your favorite bar
Friday night puking, too much PBR
Saturday morning fatback and beans
Coats the stomach, now you can drink
I cannot criticize Red Necks for living this way
What is normal in society these days

In a Flash!

In a flash-! Before you can blink an eye
In a flash-! Before you can say good-bye
With a blast-!  Of his horn at the Midnight Cry
He will catch-! Us away up in the sky   (Chorus)

When the saints are all caught away
For some it will dawn, for some, midday
For others it will be evening, for some, night
But for all of us who are walking in the Light
It should not be a terrible great surprise
Like those who will mourn with open eyes
Since we expect Him, we must watch and pray
And haste Christ's great and glorious Day

(Chorus)

Some of us who are Heaven bound
Will be above and some underground
Some will be in the sky, some in the sea
And who knows where others may or may not be
But one thing's for sure, make Christ your choice
For all of us who will hear His voice
Shall be changed, first, the sleep shall awaken
They shall fly, then we who are ready shall be taken

In a flash-! Before you can blink an eye
In a flash-! Before you can say good-bye
With a blast-!  Of his horn at the Midnight Cry
He will catch-! Us away up in the sky   (Chorus)

Culmination

I ask you 
To say goodbye for me
My only request 
Remains to rest alive to see
My stranger
Say goodbye for me 

It is for these common days 
I thank you 
The grace 
That warms the will 
In our senseless duels 
For we peasant fools 
Are granted only certain jewels 
A limited few shall be praised
On sourdough and empty mugs 
We common folk shall be raised 
Merchants shall keep calling my name
For I will keep walking 
In this fallen reign 
I’ve dreamt of living upon a time
To no longer exist 
A such time worshipped 
Lives only in gist  
Love me, leave me not 
For my desires 
I believe I may rot

SWELLING WITH PRIDE

This is a breezy and starry night,
with no strange sounds to induce its mystery;
lingering with sadness is the loneliest heart
opening the pages of an unfinished diary...
as I sit alone drinking my bitter wine,
but it should be sweet to make me feel fine!

Has anyone seen me swelling with pride,
wrapping my arms around her hips
and pressing on her soft and scented lips...
until my wild kisses would make my sweetheart fall:
wasting not a minute to convince her how I felt inside?
How could her jealousy have been the cause of imagination?  
I couldn't help being noticed by ladies of indiscretion...
if I resembled an Adonis standing on a pedestal!

Should I find anyone to explain this rage with easiness?
Would anyone be willing to stand by me
and allow me to be the kind of lover I try to be,
or let me die without ever knowing the feeling of fullness?
I still wait by the doogwood tree
where that pretty star stood still...
giving us another reason to stay longer
by the glimmering waters of the river!  

This is a peaceful and wonderful night
hearing the invisible crickets share their delight;
I lie beneath the shadows of tall trees,
and make my wish for more dreams:
hoping to never feel this cold,
being fully loved and understood...
 
Consumed by incomprehension,
somehow swelling with pride,
and yet I rest amid the dreams of incompletion;
my restless spirit has wings to soar high,
but it needs the strongest wind to lift it up...
and make it float 'till it can't stop!

Young Girl Part 2

They say, “Young girl, please don’t cry.
It will be ok if you just dry your eyes.
Write it down. Just let it out.
Tell the world what your tears are about.”

I say, “No thanks. You won’t listen to me.
These tears that keep on falling mean more than you see.
They fall because of knowledge and doubt.
I know the world doesn’t want to know what they’re about.”

They say, “Young girl, tell me what you mean.”
I say, “No thanks. You’ll just push me away.”
They say, “Young girl, don’t be scared. I’m right here.”
I say, “No thanks. These tears don’t fall due to fear.”

They say, “Young girl, please don’t cry.”
I say, “No thanks. I’ll let them fall from my eyes.”
They say, “Young girl, what’s this all about?”

They say, “Young girl, you don’t understand.
You are too young. You still need someone to hold your hand.”
I say, “No thanks. I’ll walk on my own.
I’ve learned more than you, and you claim to be grown.”

They say, “Young girl, you better bite your tongue.
You are far to immature and you are far too young.”
I say, “No thanks. You can think what you want.
I’ll learn through experience and not what you taught.”

They say, “Young girl, don’t you cry.”
As I turn around and tell them all, “Goodbye.”
They say, “Young girl, where are you headed to?”
I say, “I’m off to see the world, then I’ll come back to you.”

UNTITLED

It’s a bad bad day

A sad sad day

A day of logic and reason

Bad bad day

Sad sad day

The day you took my soul to prison

 

This is not how I want it to be

I just want to have you here with me

But you already have a family

And you don’t want any part of me

Now you closed the door to make me see

That it will never be you and me

 

Is it a crime to undermine

The things that logic stands for

In your mind there’s no reason or rhyme

For me loving you more and more

But I know that in time

You will realize that my love for you is forevermore

 
It’s a bad bad day

A sad sad day

A day of logic and reason

Bad bad day

Sad sad day

The day you took my soul to prison



Logic says that I should turn away

There really is no reason for me to stay

But I do love you come what may

And if prison is the price that I have to pay

Then I would be more than willing

Because I can not stop myself from feeling

 

And only you can set me free

That is how it’s meant to be

For without you I’m just a ghost

Without the woman I love the most

And it is by fate’s decree

That only you can set me free

Unconventional God

the One Omnipotent God

does unconventional things

and many out there agree

until they find out that it means

His ways are passed finding out

but if we will simply obey

the world will see what God does

and hear what God has to say



{Bridge}

So who directs God's Spirit to do as they feel 

He's the One who leads and guides and goes where He wills

Teaching us as we follow Christ we become unpredictable

Getting to know Him, doing exploits, strong and unconventional 



Would you do what Jesus did?

Would you say what Jesus said?

If you could see and hear your Father

Be so unpredictable

Would you do it how He did it?

Would you say it how He said it?

If you could see and hear your Father

Be so unconventional  [Chorus]



those full of the Spirit of God

do unconventional things

and many out there agree

until they find out that it means

His thoughts are not their thoughts

His ways are not their ways

and those God directs perform

and speak like Jesus does and says

Dear God Help Us Not See In Color

The world today has so much hatred 
No virtues, nothing is held sacred 
Everyone lives next to strangers, they never get to know 
In apartments condos above or below 
All of us bleed red, you are all my sisters and brothers 
Dear God help us not see in color 
When we see cultures, a lot of times 
We tend to think only the bad in our minds 
We can learn a lot from our children to accept people for who they are 
Our racial tensions should be put away in a shatterproof jar 
Predjudices should be buried in the ground, just like our ancestors next to one 
another 
We have got to stop seeing each other in color 
Never mind the stranger on the bus sitting next to you 
If that person suddenly collapsed, what would you do 
If you take the time to say hello, get to know him or her 
Life should not be lived in a cold uncaring blur 
Love for our fellow humans should not be kept under cover 
Let's all strip away the color

The Knight That Drove the Old Pixie Down

Virgin Brain is my name,
Served on the Disneyworld choo-choo
'Til my supervisor came,
and tore up my time card again...

In the summer of '95...
I joined the Templar Knights
Kind'a dig that kind of  jive....
By August the tenth,
My assignment to me had fell,
And it was one that would  lead me straight to hell...

The Knight I Drove the Old Pixie Down,
and tom bell was ringin'
The Knight I drove the Old Pixie Down,
and the children were singing,
The Knight Who Drove the Old Pixie Down!
They went; da, da, da, how friggin' dumb
da,da, da, your brain is numb
da, duh?, da, duh?, da, da, da!
da,  da, da, da, da, da, da....

Back in my tenement in Brooklyn,
When one day  a young cop did call me,
Virgin , come quick, you're wanted for robbery!!
Now I don't mind servin' time
But the food is no good,
Just be sure, the crime is mine...
Ya take the sentence given,
and ya gotta' serve your time..
But they never should
have taken...
My denim vest!

Like my mother before me,
I will work the ol' rockpile...
Like the guards above me,
I will seldom smile..
I was just dumb, stupid and niave
But the cops got me, so
they could save....
The little pixie I was stalking
Prepared to take her down,
And they got me just before
I was about to have found...
The nasty little pixie,
So evil and so sly,

No wonder someone had paid me,
To see that pixie die...

The Knight Who Drove Old Pixie Down,
The Knight Who Drove Old Pixie Down
And the stoolies were singin'
They went....Ya, ya, ya, he's guilty
Ya, ya, ya, ya, ya, ya, ya...

I swear by the ball and chain
On my feet
You can't release a con too soon....
When he's up for parole,
He'd have a better chance,
on the moon.....

Repeat chorus and fade...

If I Lied

Momma 
She doesn’t want to hear from me no more 
I'm tired, she cried 
Pointed me in a direction 
But I see that door
Would it be selfish on my part 
To grip her palms and ask for more? 
Though it's not on her chest 
She simply hopes that her customers tip the best 
If I said she hated me 
I wonder would she put these lips to rest 
In this post digital life 
I got an email from a past friend 
Point the icon to reply 
Started to type but I had no words to send 
Like a small whisper it said love won't last 
As if to hold my head I didn't bother to ask 
Rub the hurt 
To keep her above the dirt 

She tried 
She held on with what she could 
Until she died 
I said I'd never shed a tear 
But I lied 
I took her hand and cried 

Before you leave this story alone 
Maybe there's something you could do 
To piece together the worry at home 
In moments that it really counted
I guess I just would not listen 
At times when I should have softened
My heart did nothing but stiffen 
I guess that's just the way life is 
Think about what you love and lost
What was once yours was always his 
I never saw her but once 
But she never forgot 
To send me peace on my birthday 
Sometimes I wonder 
Did she lose me in her worst ways 
Then again 
There isn’t much I can say 

She tried 
She held on the best she could 
Until she died 
I said I'd never shed a tear
But I lied 
I took her hand and cried
 
With a little help from you 
We put together withered ends of a string 
In better hope that one day, one of us 
Would suffer once more to hear the other sing 
Sometimes fantasies are life 
But most of the time 
You just want to find intimacy with your wife 
I'm not trying to make amends 
But it's all over when it ends 
So love your child
Make your everyday float above his smiles 
I couldn't sympathize for your illness 
For every person maintains their own struggle 
So wipe away your tears 
Let us not become absorbed by the puddle
Keep doing what you do 
no one can stop you from pursuing it but you 
The consequences, the awards 
I'll happily push my cart 
Further down the morgue 
So close your eyes 
If I were to take my last breath 
I'd still wish you the best 

She tried 
She held on with what she could 
Until she died 
I said I'd never shed a tear 
But I lied 
I took her hand and cried

IT HELPS BUILD HATE

It helps build hate,
instead of sharing in the guilt;
it helps build hate,
instead of doing what's right!

It helps build hate
when we're too far apart
from each other and deny emotions; 
our uncertain looks
don't show a smile of friendship...
to  remind us
of  these sad and distant hearts...
are not motivated by love and trust!

It helps build hate
when we don't want
to see each other...
like we never cared for one another,
never thought of loving words...
spoken with endless sweetness!

We find it hard
to make changes,
and go back to being where we were;
it's even more offensive
and completely wrong to stand before
God and lie...
to break the bonds
and not even cry!

A Little Gilley

As I overlooked an orchard 
                            From my window up above
                       I send to you a room full of roses

Jenny Coal

I couldn't be much happier than the day you left me
I can go back to being miserable and lonely
It is much more enjoyable doing this by myself
No more stomach ulcers, you leaving me has improved my health
Since you've been gone, I've changed my point of view
It's all about me, it will never again be about you
With you I felt I was always on trial for some kind of crime
You had me sporting a ball and chain doing time
You were the Warden and I was on cell block 7
I was trapped in your hell, never seeing the light of heaven
Then a hurricane west wind swept in
It was a west wind named Jim
That day you told me to pack sand
I walked out to the car waiting for you and shook Jim's hand
I thank you Jim for freeing me at last
She will turn your world upside down and shatter all glass
I advise you to drop her off, don't let her slither in your life
She is worse than the Devil himself, don't make her your wife
Then one day, much later in the years
A knock on the door, it was Jim, you can tell he had too many beers
He ask to come in and says he can't stay long
He said he came home from work one day and made her gone
He looks at me with a smile from ear to ear
No more ulcers, migraines and no more tears
She left my life in shambles, but I am rid of her
From this day forward, I can start all over
I've already notified her next of kin
She got what she deserved in the end
She's in a million pieces, we got our wish
Scattered all over the Atlantic, feeding the fish
I tell him she as evil as they come, you will be visited by her ghost
I go to the kitchen and pull out a couple 24's and say let's have a toast
Let's drink to the woman who had no soul
No other man will ever have to experience Jenny Coal

'Til Dawn

I was a lookout, port side of our ship
So I put my weather gear on
Captain said sailor, that is your duty
You're going to be there 'til dawn
I used the big eyes, spotted an island
And called to the bridge down below
There's an island to the port side, time's on the short side
Sir, won't you please let me go
We moored in the morning and he gave me fair warning
Sailor watch how you carry on
You can leave for a while and visit the isle
But by midnight tonight we'll be gone
There was a mandolin playing, her body was swaying
Through the night the music played on
I forgot my duty, entranced by her beauty
So I sayed on the island 'til dawn
Now I sit in this jail but I can still sail
In my dreams until my time is all gone
I still sail some with my bottle of rum
And I dance with her memory 'til dawn

Dancing In The Streets

Come on come on  everybody bounce bounce bounce with me
I am a hot stepper can't nobody hold me down so set me free
Everbody  Jam Jam upon sugar hill 
let your step be on a maximun overdrive skill
Quit Quit crying in the rain 
Po folks downing purpil pills with cheap champagne
Seen my girl on T.V 
looking starry eyed and a little dizzy dizzy
Come on Come on let's keep it up 
let the whole world keep filling our cup
Rumble rumble in the jungle 
let this magic wand not let you stumble
This ghetto love got to get it  
Westside Eastside let's see it fit
For your going to fly now  
like a sweet escape electric salsa fowl
No more football on T.V.
hit the streets a dance you shall see
Got to get one more time  
try and keep up with this rhythm and rhyme
Hate it or love it  I'm going to be alright 
just stay with me just one more night
If ya getting down 
I'll be there to wipe that frown
Don't cry tonight 
Mr. Wendle luv you better with your runaway fiddle
So here we go once again
 dancing and grooving 
to a life on the streets  spin

Song of the Dying

You don’t feel upon lying
So you sing the song of the dying
Sunday afternoons 
Pastors choose reign in a spiritual doom 
The sun plasters we coons 
Stand out and fade faster with the moon
I bid you the same old static and blues
The one always in favor of tempered news
The trail of adventures and rules 
We don’t heal upon crying 
So we sing the song of the dying
The highways haunts you
Night sky’s taunt the blue 
All life wants from you
Is the truth
The secrets they’re telling you
One just knows not what to do 
Feel like you want to cry
Coincidentally you realize 
It would be better to die 
We don’t feel upon lying 
So we sing the song of the dying 
I’ve given away myself in every song
Driven the bars last liquor home
No sympathy for an aging man
For I cannot feel your tears 
Upon my rough hands 
My scared palms 
My irrelevance 
bared in chapters of Psalms 
Until my ending is calmed

Perfect Peace

Whatever is sure
Whatever is pure
Whatever is beautiful
Whatever is true 
Whatever's of You
O Lord it is wonderful

To think on such things as these
As I keep my mind stayed on Thee
You will keep me in perfect peace
Since I put all my trust in Thee   

Whatever's of love
Whatever is just
Whatever is good and pleasant 
If there's any virtue
Whatever's of You
O Lord it is excellent

To think on such things as these
As I keep my mind stayed on Thee
You will keep me in perfect peace
Since I put all my trust in Thee

Whatever you've learned
Whatever you've heard
If it's of good report
Whatever you've seen
If you've been redeemed
Practice and praise the Lord

Young Girl Part 1

They say, “Young girl, don’t cry.
It’ll be ok if you just dry your eyes.
Write it down. Just let it out.
Tell the world what your tears are all about.”

I say, “No thanks. I’m fine.
I’ll be ok later. Just let me cry.
Let my tears wash this away.
I’m not ready to express my pain.”

They say, “Young girl, hold your tongue.
You’ll understand it all after it is done.
But as of now, you don’t understand.
You shouldn’t speak about that which you don’t comprehend.”

I say, “No thanks. You’ve got me wrong.
I understand more than words to my favorite song.
I see the tears streaming down your face,
And I understand because I’m in that place.”

They say, “Young girl, here’s a pen and pad.
Write down what we say so you will understand.
I know you have ideas of the things you see.
But the reasons behind them aren’t always as they seem.”

I say, “No thanks. I’ll learn on my own.
I don’t need the help of someone already grown.
I’ve got to learn these things alone.
Just like you once learned the same things on your own.”

They say, “Young girl, please listen to me.
You can’t simply say it and expect it to be.
There are problems you’ll face that are greater than you.
And when they come up, what are you going to do?”

I say, “No thanks. I’ll experience things.
I know that if I say it, it won’t always be.
But I know that inside of me
Lies the power to face anything.”

They say, “Young girl, stay where you are.
Through experience alone you won’t go very far.
Some things are bigger than you should face.
What will you do when you find yourself in that place?”

I say, “No thanks. I know more than you think.
The things of the world aren’t greater than what is in me.
You see, within me lies belief and strength.
Those are all I need to get through any place.”

Beautiful Thief Glowing Hearts (Part IV)

Gratifying hearts emitting passion and sexual desire
Radiant eyes transfixed, two on two
The Thief Beautiful Is She has stolen me
Once Again
Magnetic lust, gravitational yearning
Connecting souls 
Flowing desires
Luscious, juicy, tongues dancing
Both of us bottomless, Deep inside loves sweet flavor
Uncontrollable, bursting
Oh Beautiful Thief 
Flesh on Flesh, writhing bodies
Torrid Heat, fire, burning desires
Tasting, teasing, tantalizing
Licking, dripping, flaming
Energy, orbiting, culminating
Driven, synergistic, Pure X-T-C

I'VE LOOKED FOR SOMEONE REAL

I've looked for someone real...
who's pretty and has sex appeal;
beside loyalty and caring,
there is also much cheating!

Lots of people still live
in a world of steady fantasy...
they' will never leave...
others take, they don't give;
they hurt constantly,
and they don't forgive anybody!

I've looked for someone real...
who loves and gives to the full;
life's born of hope, too;
it's so wonderful 
good friends to run to...
I've looked for someone real!

I've looked for someone real...
who knows how to satisfy
my wildest desire
without a goodbye;
I can't let despair
take away the plans
I've made and still
make for someone real...
my tomorrow would be
so sad and worthless!

I've looked for someone real...
who's pretty and has sex appeal;
besides loyalty and caring,
there is also much cheating!

The Lord Will Provide

The Lord gave Abraham a promise and a son
Through Sarah who conceived and laughed with everyone
For Isaac was the name in which all his seed is called
And his faith was evident and God's power shown to all
When He spoke to Abraham, "Sacrifice your only son
In the mountain of your Lord, offer up this innocent one."

Sarah must have had her doubts about what her husband heard
But Abraham said, "We will return, I beleive the promised word."
And on the journey of three days to the place of God's desire
Isaac carried his own wood, Abraham, the knife and fire
But then Isaac said, "my father", who answered, "Here I am"
"Here is the fire and the wood, but tell me where is the lamb?"

The Lord will provide
A Lamb to sacrifice
So you won't have to die
He'll give another life
Now lift up your eyes
It shall be seen from upon high
That the Lord will provide
A Lamb to sacrifice	(Chorus I)

And they came to the place, he built an alter there
Then in order laid the wood as Isaac stood and stared
Yet, he didn't say a word, although he could
He let his father bind him and lay him on the wood
For Abraham would receive him in a figure as it's said
Believing God could raise Him up, even from the dead.

As tears rolled down his face, he quickly raised the knife
But the angel called his name, "Abraham!  Don't take his life!
For now I know you fear the Lord to offer up your firstborn."
Then Abraham looked up and saw a ram caught by its horns
And he hurried to the bush and sacrificed the ram
Instead of his own son, who wondered, "Where is the lamb?"

(Chorus I)

Like Abraham our heavenly Father gave his only son
To a world who laughed and scorned and bruised this innocent one
Who never said a word as he carried his wooden cross
To a place called Calvary, the way made for the lost
He was nailed and hung upon that tree, He suffered, bled and died
And was lain within a tomb but in three days He was revived
Just as Abraham by faith spoke of the lamb God would provide
Jesus is the Lamb, the Lamb of God was sacrificed

The Lord did provide 
The Lamb to sacrifice
So none would have to die
He gave us His own life
Now lift up your eyes
Your Redemption draweth nigh
And see our God did provide
The Lamb who is alive!    2 X's	(Chorus II)
{fade}

{Then in a strong chorus}
Jehovah Jireh, my Provider
In the mount of God it shall be provided
Jehovah Jireh, my Provider
In the mount of God He will provide

cinderella story

midnight hits the magic fades
gone are the coach gone are the knaves
the glass slippers left behind 
in this a cinderella story

born in to loving arms on a council estate
the lifts dont work
you cant escape
but then my mum she had to go
off to my aunts house i had to loam

my cousins hurt and teased me 
as they stole my money
beat me senseless left me for dead
now im dreaming in my bed of when

my princess charming comes to get me
picks me up and gets me out of here
leave behind this barron wasteland
of missery and regret
then i wake into a nightmare 
i look at the clock and i feel realy sick

midnight hits the magic fades
gone are the coach gone are the knaves
the glass slippers left behind 
in this a cinderella story

will i get out of this living nightmare
as a servent to the system in a bloodline
when o when will it by my time
to find my princess and to all this say bye bye

Showing Off

We're not showing off
And we won't put it off-
We're just praising the name of Jesus
But if we're showing off
Still we won't put it off-
We'll keep praising the name of Jesus   (Chorus)

There are those who think the Lord requires a solemn face
And there are those who quench His Spirit in this place
But there are those who sing and shout with hands and hearts to raise
And they are those who're free to give God all their praise

And if we're getting on your nerve-
And if we don't fit your format-
Well we've got a God to serve-
And we know it's going to take all that
He's pleased with that-	  (Bridge)

(Chorus)

There are those who feel they know just how much it takes
And there are those who say we're going through a phase
So there are those who clap and dance with hands and hearts to raise
And they are those who're free to give God all their praise

(Bridge)    (Chorus)

Praise Him for his goodness, praise Him for his love
Praise Him with your voices, praise Him all ye lands
Praise Him with the timbrel and all your instruments
Praise Him with a loud noise, sing and clap your hands  (Repeat)

(Bridge)  (Chorus)

For the Holidays

A simple decision
I came to accept at a younger age than known
I don’t remember my earlier birthdays
But since it fell in place
September, November, December
Then it’s a depressional season alone
If it were up to me, when I reached seven
I would have been heavenly gone
And you ask me
Will I be coming home for the holidays?
Holidays, they come, they go
For smiles and snow, a New York warmth
I’d trade with any convict doing death row
You punish me, but it seems to be
Something more than mischief
A flaw in your parental morals 
Let’s graph the hope held in each poor child 
You and I 
We have-nots were claimed as plurals 
Life long friends 
How much more can we endure pal
Do you no longer ask
If I’ll be home for the holidays
This is for your birthday, each passing Christmas
The wars in which you continue to enlist us 
The days you missed us 
The casualties whom bit the dust 
The individuals whom pissed on trust 
For those entitled to this imperishable crush
Will you be home for the holidays?

According to the Scriptures

Jesus died for my sins
(According to the Scriptures)
He was laid in a tomb
(According to the Scriptures)
But He rose to life again
(According to the Scriptures)
Now He's coming real soon
(According to the Scriptures)     [Chorus]

Jesus died for my sins, He was laid in a tomb
But He rose to life again, now  He's coming real soon
According to the Scriptures and believed by the saints
Yet if Christ be not raised then our faith is in vain
BUT!  Jesus is alive and He rose from the dead
We're the Body of Christ and Christ is the head
Who's become the firstfruit of those who've slept
Afterward at His Coming, those who have been kept
From the pollution of the world, the solution is faith
Being sealed with His Spirit until we see Christ's day
When all things are subdued and the mountains will fall
The son is subject to the father, God is all and in all
Every knee will surely bow and tongue confess that
Jesus is Lord while secrets of the hearts manifest
Some on the right hand, others on the left
As he separates the wheat from the chaff with his breath

[Chorus]

It's according to the Word, now it's time for you to level
You can't drink of Jesus cup and the cup of the devil
Awake to righteousness and sin not!
And it's ashame if you don't have the knowledge of God
Watch ye, stand fast in the faith be strong
Submit yourself to Jesus flee away from all wrong
For evil companionships corrupt good manners
So stay with holy ones lifting up the Lord's banner
As Christ increases, we decrease daily dying
Maximizing with the People Of War Ever Rising
While awaiting the redemption of our bodies we're victors
And we'll go up in the Rapture according to the Scriptures

[Chorus]


{A rap I wrote while in college in celebration of Easter-  I Cor. 15:3,4}

Who is Our Life

When Christ, who is our Life, shall appear
We'll be caught up~! To meet Him in the air
And our glory hid in God with Jesus Christ
Shall be revealed when we appear 
With Him in Eternal Life  (Chorus)

Some people say they got the life
And they think they have a better way
But the truth about their lusts and pride
Is with the using they all pass away

[Bridge]
Yet they think it's strange that we don't run
To do the same excess they consider fun
And when ridiculed for the sake of His Name
Compared to Glory, it's nothing- take the shame

(Chorus)

The world tells us to get a life
And that we live a narrow-minded way
But the truth we know will cause such strife
Because they're blind & deaf to what we say

[BridgeII]
But the Gospel won't be hid or overcome
For then it would be concealed from the lost ones
But if we suffer insults for the name of Christ
Remember in Him are all the meanings of Life

(Chorus)

{Channel}
And when the sign of the Son appears in the sky
Then all the nations of the earth will begin to cry
For they will see Him come with power and glory from above
And see us in the clouds with Him they've spoken evil of

[Bridge]

When Christ, who is our Life, shall appear
We'll be caught up~! To meet Him in the air
And our glory hid in God with Jesus Christ
Shall be revealed when we appear 
With Him in Eternal Life  (Chorus)

The Sea

The calming of the sea
The very palms
In which 
every man wishes to be
No boundaries, free
Where men fought for hollow trees
With branches, limbs
Bare arms, no sleeves 
Buried 
With the fragrance of fallen leaves
Upon these times we wish
We dream of molecules
Endless mercury to kiss 
Lain for now and tomorrow
My life, 
The melody,
You have all come to miss
Welcome to the calming of the sea
The very palms 
Inwhich every man wishes to be

tome of days

And I’ll sail forever 
My ocean of mischief
A sea of comfort
My hymn of peace 
Love comes with in the drift
My heart tears from the rift
Life my burden to hold 
Above my shoulders in lift

And I’ll sail forever
The moments 
that flatter our cheeks 
A child, A fleet 
Of inspiring smiles 
Our happiness our triumph
The displeasure in vows 
My judgment in trials 
An episode relaxed 
Racing for miles 

Who’s to tell me 
I cannot sail 
Toward which wind wanders
I am but a sun lit rise
Growing ale 
Most prisoners ask for freedom
Letters of ordinary tales 
Photographs and mail
But I think 
I will forever sail

I thank you for your comments
I acknowledge them, I walk on
In search of wonders
Stress free, a place to belong
Don’t you wish you were home
I’m writing for pictures 
An image clear 
Yet no one sees
Then again who am I to be
I’m only running with the sea

LAY DOWN WITH NOBODY...

Lay down with nobody,
honor me with your trust;
don't let the delusion of lust...
make you unfree and incomplete!
There are too many false loves,
only mine is pure and real;
once you poor heart shatters into pain:
there's hardly any remedy!

A sweet song, played tenderly, will fall
on these trembling lips
as spring suddenly opens wide its sunny skies:
to  let us slip and fall,
cry and shout with joy...sometime!
Let's avoid being faithless,
let's grab our moments...gliding with happiness;
God will be glad and smile!

Lay down with nobody,
put this thought aside;
never be told of having lied...
of having hidden your stunning secret!
Lay down with nobody,
lest I come short of your expectations;
then, I'll have to live with it,
and bear all the consequences!

Lay dow with nobody,
don't destroy what's so great and perfect;
lay down with nobody...
emotions don't feel right when they're fake!

The Lord is My Shepherd

O Lord You're my Shepherd
I shall lack no good thing
You make me to lie down
In pastures of green
Beside the still waters
Is how You lead me
In paths of righteousness 
Is where You guide me

For the sake of Your Holy Name
You restore my soul the same

O Lord You're my Shepherd
And I will fear no evil
Even though I walk through shadows
Of the darkest valley
For You are with me
You're my Saviour and my God
And You comfort me
With Your staff and rod

For the sake of Your Holy Name
You restore my soul the same

O Lord You're my Shepherd
You prepare a table before me
A feast in the presence
Of my enemies
You anoint my head with oil
My cup overflows
All the days of my life
Goodness and love shall follow

For the sake of Your Holy Name
You restore my soul the same

And I will dwell in your house 
I will dwell in your house
I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever

My Conclusion

This is where the story ends
A young man fallen in his own mischief
Times I shouldn’t have
But I really adored my friends 
Forty days, is forty or more sins
This is where my story ends 
Not a whole lot of spiteful
Spiteful, unused energy
A headache is simply adding integers
Past chances is blown wind
Reassure my friends 
That this is where the story ends
Cole street
No gravel below my feet
Fifty silverware a person
The next hour of continuous cursing 
Pregnant hostess 
With an infant that needs nursing
Waiter/slash/server
She spoke 
But I never once heard her
Chips and salsa
That mistake is going to cost you
IOU’s with bronze coins to spend 
I wish this was where the story ends 
Do you miss me 
I’d kiss you 
But for twenty minutes now
I’ve been observing you 
Through a glass lenses 
Nineteen years 
I’ve fallen before broken amends 
When I held tears above my chin
Sadly this is where my story ends

the old oak

Verse 1 
There’s a house on a hill with an old oak at the side 
There’s a bridge down the way crossing a river that’s wide 
And the green hills roll forever, it’s a beautiful sight 
With a backdrop of mountains their tips covered white 

Verse 2 
There’s a house on a hill with an old oak at the side 
Where I carved out our names with a small pocket knife 
And the letters we etched in a timeless old tree 
Say that I’ll always love you long past eternity 

Chorus 
I’ll soon be with you angel, this body grows tired 
I’ll soon be with you angel for soon I’ll expire 
I’ll soon be with you angel never then will we part 
I’ll soon be with you angel be still my beating heart 

Verse 3 
There’s a house on a hill with an old oak at the side 
And a single headstone marks the place where you lie 
A chair by the side of your last resting place 
Which I sit in for hours and just stare into space 

Verse 4 
There’s a house on a hill with an old oak at the side 
Tended by a lost soul who hasn’t much time 
It won’t be long now and we’ll be one again 
There’s been so much pain since I lost you my friend 

Chorus 
I’ll soon be with you angel, this body grows tired 
I’ll soon be with you angel for soon I’ll expire 
I’ll soon be with you angel never then will we part 
I’ll soon be with you angel be still my beating heart

At Bubba's We Spent the Night

We take Bubba home to drop him off 
His father and mother come out, they begin to hack and cough 
His father extends his hand out to shake mine 
My wife says don't be rude, go ahead and shake it, I do so, his hand is covered 
with mucuossy slime 
After shaking his hand, I begin to gag 
The wife with no bra, smiles and hands me a Save A Lot shopping bag 
She takes a swig from her 32 oz brew 
Then offers it to my wife Sue 
I say come on, it is your turn to show manners now 
As she takes a swallow, I watch her face, the expression looked like she was 
trying to give birth to a cow 
Bubba asks his father if we can all stay the night 
The father says fittin' us all in one bedroom will be very tight 
I tell him we will sleep in the kitchen near the back door 
He says pay no mind to critters on the floor 
I ask where is the toilet, I have to go 
He says out back, you're in luck, I just dug a fresh new hole 
I think to myself, this is not the way life should be 
A night at Bubba's I wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy 
At 3 am, they are in the kitchen stepping over us getting snacks 
We are offered each a bowl of that famous soup called fatback 
Bubba yells I want my box of cupcakes 
His mom hands a pack of Reelfoot pork hot dogs and says for goodness sakes 
He devours them as if he was in a hot dog eating contest 
Bubba says, after I eat my cupcakes, that will tie me over so I can rest 
A little after 4, Bubba gets his fill 
After breakfast, we were told we can leave on our own free will 
After trying some rocky mountain oysters, it is time we leave 
The dad says we would love to come and stay with y'all on New Year's Eve 
I tell him until 2040 we have plans 
He says that's fine that will give them enough time to collect some aluminum 
cans 
We move to another state with no forwarding address 
Never again putting ourselves in that kind of mess

A DEEPER DIMENSION THAN WORDS

I was like a helpless child
incapable of giving love...
needing a gentle mother by his side
to care for his needs!
I was left alone and forgotten by all...
and feeling so miserible,
I clung to my faith and waited;
no, I didn't search for shallow things!

Everybody thought I had everything,
walked right by  me and didn't see my agony; 
nobody realized I needed company,
and I felt like a bird with a broken wing! 

But unexpected miracles still happen today...
even in this age of greed and infidelity, 
because unselfish love like kindness 
has a deeper meaning than words!

You've given up your freedom
and changed this look of boredom;
you've opened up your loving arms...
forgetting my habits and my faults!

I have a new song to sing so joyfully...
to tell everyone you had compassion for me;  
I have another reason to be grateful...  
to give all of myself tenderly,  
because unconditional love like kindness
has a deeper dimension than words!

Jack Daniels And Me

V-1:
Clenched fists...in a barroom of sorrow
Against the bar...thinkin' bout tomorrow
Filling my mouth...from a peanut sack
Down I went...another shot from Jack

V-2:
I picked myself up...got me to my feet
Head spinning...as I sit on this bar seat
I wiped the blood...from my left brow
For tonight...Jack really put me down

Chorus:
All alone...Jack Daniels and me
Tonight my friend...had me feeling guilty
My wife up and left...said that's your life storie
As she left us alone...Jack Daniels and me

V-3:
Woke up this morning...in a Motel of shame
Still holdin' Jack...and my head full of pain
My mind flashed back...to the night before
Watching her leave...me and Jack on the floor

V-4:
I rememberd those words...she'd say everyday
The drinkin' must stop...or I'm going away
Now the last ten years...is all shot to hell
As I cling to my friend...on this floor where I fell

Chorus:
All alone...Jack Daniels and me
Last night my friend...had me feeling guilty
My wife up and left...said that's your life storie
As she left us alone...Jack Daniels and me

Memo

Guess you can say
I’ll be there today
Yes I’ll be there today

I’ve been 
Chasing 
The same blue moon
So much 
Time decayed this day 
I’d rush you
But tomorrows 
Going to come too soon

The touch of my quill
Has found it’s dry
For you and I 
Seem to have fallen
Over into life 

I guess you can say
I’ll be there today 

It’s been merely
21 years 
And I can’t seem 
To get over the wrong
I guess this song
Is bringing me home

It’s been quite tough today
She brushed here eyes against mine
She said
Smiles
They still bitter my touch
Startled I 
Lost my thoughts in a way

Guess you can say
I’ll be here today

I see you seem happily today
I guess you couldn’t find yourself 
I see you hid your voice softly today
I assume you seek only those who left
Your side this day

Good Samaritan

As you go
Where God will send
Be a neighbor; be a friend
Don't pass by
On the other side
When you see the hurting ones
Be merciful
And pity them
Who somehow have become victims
Help and love them
As you do yourself
Be like the Good Samaritan  

Find the hurt
Pour oil and wine
To cleanse their wounds you bind
Lift and warm 
Them in your arms
Let love be their inheritance
Carry them
With gentle prayer
To where they will get more care 
At your expense
Follow up on them
Like the Good Samaritan

All that I Am

Don’t leave me now
I won’t go 
Pieces of you
This is all that I am

And now you come to me 
You’re going to miss me
Asking me what’s wrong
And I simply reply, “Nothing”
And faintly smile
Days have gone by 
As I am your painted child
Yes you’re going to miss me 

Don’t leave me now 
I won’t go
Pieces of you
This is all that I am 

I have no family 
No parentals 
I am a rolling stone 
I know you’ve heard the song 
You’re going to miss me 
Look for me 
And find me no more you shall
Every move I’ve made seems foul
But you’re going to miss me 

“The funny thing is 
When you’re a rolling stone
You tend to live against the wind
But a stone weighs solid 
Therefore the wind cannot carry it
So in other words 
You become a burden to bear”

Sittin' On the Doc of the Bay

Left my home in Jamaica,
headed for the Hampton Bay
I had no medical insurance,
Looked like none was gona come my way

So I'm just sittin' on the Doc. of the Bay
Wishin' health would flow my way
Just sittin' on the Doc of the Bay,
Wasting rhyme........

I came down with nasty shingles
My skin was try'in to crawl away,
I went to this Doc. in Hampton
He was more than odd, I must say

He wanted to bleed me with a leech
Then dye my hair with bleach
I thought this was mighty weird
To understand it would be a reach

I sensed I was in danger,
This turkey had a lesson to teach
So I threw him with Ju-Jitsu speed
and down he went
 His pride I did breach

Then I sat upon his sore old body
Waitin' for the cops to come,
If jail was my destination,
I would sure feel the bum
So reflectively I sat there,
And even started to whistle and hum

Just sittin' on the Doc of the Bay,
Wishin' this day would go away,
Just sittin" on the Doc of the Bay
Ready to serve time.............

Box of Letters

My tears are falling as you get on the bus 
I am lost for words what happened between the two of us 
We both lived a fairy tale about two fools in love 
Anger spilled, accusations fly when push comes to shove 
I got home took time to relax and pull myself together 
I started to clean up and found the box of letters 
These letters were us when we first met 
When things get rough, the bad you see, the good you forget 
There is no turning back time 
But moving on without you seems like a crime 
You said you would call when you get there 
With me I thought you were already somewhere 
You will forever be that sparkle in my eyes 
We both cheated ourselves from love, life's greatest prize 
The storm in my heart will pass and I soon will have fair weather 
But it will return each time I go through the box of letters

Bootycyze Me

You've got it going on, you're packin' the heat 
in your trunk is a sweet, sweet treat 
As you walk on by, the boys break their necks 
With your shake, rattle and roll, you've passed my test 
Is your mother like you, the apple doesn't fall far from the tree 
Give me few moments of your time Bootycyze Me 
Let's take a stroll in the park sometime 
You walk ahead, I'll walk behind 
Tell me profile, give me your 4-1-1 
Let's get together, you have the equipment for fun 
You have a enough backside, you can share with me 
Up close or at a distance, I like what I see 
Give me a few moments of your time, Bootycyze Me 
You are smokin', so red hot 
All the girls ask what she got that I ain't got 
A word to the old, a word to the wise 
You will know it when you've been Bootycyzed 
Cassanova, Prince Charming and Don Juan, I am all three 
Give me a few moments of your time, Bootycyze Me

What I Say I Am

Am I what I say I am,
When I try to win that woman? 
When you try to win that man-?
Am I what I say I am?
They'll be won the conversation
Of the hid-den man.   (Chorus)

The hidden man's of the heart
When you're searching that's where you start
Don't just look at the physical appearance
Beauty is vain and could serve as a hind'rance...

Love at first sight isn't always smart
With time and patience real love imparts...

A since of security, they're friends indeed
Learning to be sensitive to each other's need...

Keeps Me Sangin'

Jesus keeps me sangin'-!

I sing cause I'm happy, my heart's melody
I cause I'm free, yes, I know that I am free indeed
His eye's on the sparrow; I know He watches me
And that keeps me sangin'
He keeps me sangin'
Jesus keeps me sangin'-!  (Chorus)

I thought that I would never find someone so patient and so kind
Who had love that was just for me
Until Jesus came my way, He still sticks close to me today
So unconditionally

(Bridge 1)
He's always with me, never leaves nor forsakes me
And Jesus is the one thing my heart is sure of
So I-
(Chorus)

Jesus is my Lord and God and His love is shed abroad
In my heart I do believe
And with my mouth I do confess and I am saved, His righteousness
Is so heavenly

(Bridge 2)
He forgives and forgets all my sins and my debts
And Jesus is the one thing that my heart is sure of
So I-
(Chorus)

Now I need, and you need, and we all need His kind of love (2x's)
 
He forgives and forgets all my sins and my debts
And Jesus is the one thing my heart is sure of

So I- sing cause I'm happy, my heart's melody
I cause I'm free, yes, I know that I am free indeed
His eye's on the sparrow; I know He watches me
And that keeps me sangin'
He keeps me sangin'
Jesus keeps me sangin'-!  (Chorus)

I sing for joy inside my soul
Cause Jesus Christ has made me whole
His joy's my strength that makes me glad
And He's the best love I've ever had

Wishes

Night time skies 
Night times I really tried 
For a lifetime
Love sincerely tired 
When anytime is no more
As long as silence creeps beneath my door
All things perish 
And all that remains is gone
Against time you decipher life
Still you remain all alone
Seems we co-exit as one in this book of a thousand wishes 
Mainly I was angry
For I come home
And there were no clean dishes
Therefore I granted you 
My love, my scars, my blisters
I pleasured myself 
As I bruised you for not saying mister
As in bedtime 
I would lay you a rest in a whisper
I held your lust at hand 
For I am you husband 
A fallen aspect of your most conceited wishes 
Hugs and kisses 
Eighteen years
Marching children enlisted
The turn in the tide 
We stood and we nearly missed it 
A lasting call
Summoned us all to our doom 
Should I stand, should I fall?
Should I pray as a ghost? 
And over my nightmares hope that smiles loom?
A visualization of things to come
Perhaps my readers
Will now know where I’m coming from
And may we no longer need a book of timeless wishes

Tell Me The Story Of Jesus

O come tell me the story of Jesus on Jordan's stormy bank
Come let's us break bread together down by the old rugged cross
Lift  Lift every voice and sing Joyful Joyful We adorn Thee
Let's come and crown Him with many crowns for the beauty of the earth
For the Lord is my Shepard Pass me not O gentel Saviour
Keep me leaning on the everlasting arm and take the name of Jesus with you
For He is purer and whiter than snow So let me come face to face
With my Christ my Lord amidst the lily of the valley 
For I love to tell the story that there is a foundation 
Since Jesus came into my heart  For this is my Father's World
Which He leadeth me down the path When the morning comes
Come join just a closer walk with Thee 
For the church's are our foundations Of O God our hope in ages past

something meant to be

I
To wonder where you are
To wonder where you’ll be
To wish upon a star
To have you here with me  
The wonder of the moment spent
In concentrated thought
Is witching at my crowded brain
And stretching twanging taut
Some things are as they are
Some things are meant to be
That doesn’t mean they are
Perhaps just meant to be
I have felt our love exploding exponentially
And the wonder of the feeling is still consuming me
There’s a dragon on my mind
Tipping scales are dripping charms
And god knows what I’ll find
Behind those swaying palms
So hold me closely sooth my fey
And let me live another day
Within your loving arms
For when the darkness comes
And vision fails to see
I’ll reach to feel
For what is real
To know you’re still with me

THAT SONG OUR LIPS SING

Peaceful and bright night
full of wanderous stars
catch us kissing...
feeling so lost
in the whispering pine trees;
and there's no shame in giving
ourselves to heartfelt joys to stimulate
sensations in our warm souls!

That song our lips sing
comes from the endless love we feel;
faithful woman...steal this childish heart,
longing for dreams never
dared to be sought!
That song our lips sing
was born  yesterday,right here...
when loneliness suddenly
turned into happiness;
when we vowed never to fear
the unhappy and envious
faces of others!

Peaceful and bright night
full of wanderous stars...
fulfill our needs and desires,
because only night was made for love,
for people who never have enough to give:
like that song our lips sing!

Vessels

Within these lines 
I want to cry 
I swear 
There were times 
I wanted to die 
When everyone is watching 
Awaiting your failure 
Salvation 
I cannot begin to tell you 
The soulless figure 
I am about to sell you 
Look beyond me 
Although the most of you 
Are to you young to see 
It seems this suffering 
Belongs only to me 
Sparkles in the sky 
They are not stars 
Only pieces of my heart

Prospect

In this near future
I’ll never die
I must never open my eyes to cry
In this near future
It seems I have cursed this presence of life
I have placed doom 
Upon any courtesy of essence due to what’s right 
Your angel of light
One flash
A simple loan of your most treasured belongings 
And in my vaults of anguish shall rest your ash 
Messiah of arched smiles 
I’ve carried this burden
For time has been measured “a while”
Summon me perched in hurt
I have searched for the warmness within your smirk
Beyond my pieced together songs
My emptiness lurks
Never the less it’s all in further efforts
Yet in this near future 
I’ll never die 
I must never open my eyes to cry
In this near future 
Disaster shall not be worn
Therefore the pieces of this song 
You shall not mourn

Love Can't Live

Can anybody really love?
Give themselves over completely
Have someone who really know them,
Who can hold them all night?

You see that sign there in the window,
Saying, ‘I heart you don’t let me go.’
Can someone really feel that much emotion,
About someone who’s just another person?

‘Cause I know people come and they go, 
Their nothing special. They’re just on the same road. 
They take their time or quickly pass by. 
But the sharper the look, the harder you ask yourself why. 

So, can anybody really feel love?
Can anybody really dig that deep?
‘Cause you’ll turn around in circles,
All looking for the same things.

And I’ve heard of loving God,
Loving family, and loving your friends.
But I just don’t think a person could ever get deep enough, 
To feel what their dreaming of. 

Love just doesn’t seem easy enough,
Seems like it should always shine through. 
Or is that just an optimists’ point of view,
‘Cause it don’t seem likely that it will happen for you.

Then why is love even a factor,
When no one seems to hold on to the truth. 
How can love even exist in this world,
After all I’ve been through. 

Caring is a beginning,
Helping out, it becomes a fact.
But nothing ever last for love to hold to, 
‘Cause truth is all love has.

And you can love your children, 
You can love your best friend. 
But to just love some person, 
It’s not a realistic end.

So, love can’t last, and if there’s truth in that. 
I don’t want to live in this world. 
‘Cause all these people who were trying. 
Now are crying, and I can’t live with that.

Something Good

God is the One who makes something good out of nothing
Speaking light in the darkness covering the face of the deep
And the Spirit of the Lord is hovering over your waters
To give you form, fill your void and breathe you out of sleep   (chorus)

In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth
And He saw all He made was very good for His intentions
But soon after the first living souls experienced birth
They chose death and now seek out wicked inventions
	So Adam and Eve again lie lifeless on the ground in sin
	But God raises up the dead because they must be born again

[bridge]
For we are nothing without Jesus Christ and without Him nothing we can do
But with the Greater One living within, Satan can't make 'nothing' out of you

(chorus)

In the beginning Satan wanted the heaven and the earth
He saw every good thing within it and distracted our attention
Until the Seed of the Woman crushed the devil's evil mirth
Through His death, burial, resurrection and ascension
	Now the flaming sword is turning to direct us together
	To reach out and take the Tree of Life, eat and live forever

[bridge]

(chorus)

[rap]
Once our world was full of darkness
Then bright and shining through came the Light
To those who receive and believe in Him
To be God's children He gave the right
And now He sees you as very good
Every man, woman, boy and girl
Because greater is He that is in you
Than he that is in this world

{bridge and chorus simultaneously}

In Time

What if we make it in time 

Took my eldest brother of heart
I was age eight
Routing me through different foster homes
I could turn to nothing other than art
Script my life to a page, my newly designed faceplate
Registered me in school with hillbillies
Rednecks lurking behind oak trees 
plotting to noose and conceal me
Troubles away from home
It’s all my fault, I’ll withstand the punishment
Take a recess, filter out the problems
Let you know how much fun it’s been
Street thugs want to beat; I’m no ones fool to beat 
Pressure me and in my possession I acquire the tools to beef
As Lustful individuals we relaxed in our own deceit 
Situations come to a stand still 
I take shelter beneath the neighboring bridge 
I’m grown and on my feet 
Who could criticize my passion for success?
Here lately it’s become a fashion to stress  
In these heated hours of liaison with we nest

I believe in me, myself, and nothing else 

I’m out late in the night
I’ve got to get the rent 
Trying to lead of life toward luxury
Another flaw in torment I resent 
Plus I got issues with the police 
The mayor and the presiding judges
So many scoundrels to enlighten my grudge 
No one to stand beside this perched individual
Therefore I believe me, only myself
Wishing hard times upon me
Brush them off, time to study for my clinicals
The dirt shoveled, equals the nonsense I’ve been dealt
Put an out cast to ease 
A touch somewhat seldom felt
Trailing my steps, 
As I expire, you may have what’s left  

And who knows, we might actually make in time

Peering through my blackened mirror in scenes
I witness the incessant struggles of individuals in spleen 
Mortar over my nemesis as seen 
The tower I build in an effortless climb 
A have-not in time, this leprosy of mine 
But you and I we have history in reply 
Rest your thoughts next to this Charismatic character
On whom else could you simply rely? 
The love letters I receive in kind
My colleague wants to know dearly 
If you have a friend in mind  
Paper makes misery worth living
Mother says her rapper insist I owe in him thanks in given
The humor in my latest statement
“By my ambitions only I’m driven”

I believe in me, myself and nothing else
But who knows, we might actually make it in time

Big Bad Mama

I'm the woman behind the man behind the wheel
Let's Giddy -Up-Go My phantom 309
Give me forty acres Eighteen wheels And a dozen roses
For this is a trucker's last ride Eastbound Westbound
Let's start us a Convoy I know there's a love story
in the making under the bright Kansas City lights
Roll on Big Mama This is your Teddy Bear from
the old home filler up and keep Cafe 
Just put the hammer down and 
let's see how fast them a trucks can a go
For Mama knows the highway And the girl

With my big wheels in the moonlight Rolling me

Looking for someone else I once knew

Gift

On this day 
I have not much to say
Spare You, I will
Only because you held me 
When no other would love me
So I give you hope beyond a journal

I will think about the good times 
And I will continue to love you

Why do you cry?
You will not miss me 
Life is much too great
For my absence to be thought of 

So let us think of the good times
And I will continue to love you

This is for my Dylan Thomas 
My Tupac Shakur
The sonnets of our John Donne
The Spears our William may never Shake

Life is A Western Movie

They say life is like a sit-com,
“Honeymooners” reruns play on down the years;
They say life is like a soap opera—
You wash your dishes and then you dry your tears.

They say life is like a cop show—
Big blue light follows you in close pursuit;
They say life is like a game show—
You win a set of luggage from the man in the shiny suit.

But I say life is a Western movie,
On the Chisholm Trail you ride through the wind and rain;
Life is a Western movie,
‘Cause every now and then you’ve got to face that high noon train.

Yes, life is a Western movie,
In the California gold rush you just might get rich;
Or down in Texas they might run off all your cattle,
So you might form a posse and string up the son-of-a-gun.

I tell you, life is a Western movie,
Cowgirls watch you when you make that rodeo ride;
But all you really need is one good cowgirl
To stand beside till you cross that Great Divide.

But I say life is a Western movie,
On the Chisholm Trail you ride through the wind and rain,
Life is Western movie,
‘Cause every now and then you’ve got to face that high noon train,
And ride off in the distance just like Shane…
Just like Shane.

My Sweatshop

We open at 5 and close at sunset 
I expect a lot of production, I provide water and towels for sweat 
A complimentary lunch that comes in a can 
There is a choice of ham or turkey made from SPAM 
They love the conditions, so they don't want to stop 
I have many benefits owning my own sweatshop 
I have people making jeans and shoes 
My business, by the Department of Labor has been approved 
One girl is pregnant, but not by me 
Her parents put the blame on Cathy Lee 
Now another 16 hour shift has ended 
Immigration came through, my business license has been suspended 
They say I am the cause of tax evasion 
Oh well, I have enough money, time for a vacation 
I ask Cathy lee to meet me at the New Haven Truck Stop 
I need expert advice on how to run a sweatshop 
She has given me the advice I need 
She said don't use cotton, save money by switching to tweed 
She also said lower their wages 
For defiant workers, provide empty cages 
It all comes down to making your business the cream of the crop 
I got advice from the expert on how to run my own sweatshop

I Threw Then Away

Since you've been gone, I've been so sad 
The silence within these four walls is driving me mad 
No smell of burnt toast or overcooked eggs in the air 
Don't have to unclog the shower drain from your hair 
The blues reappeared when you left that day 
A year ago I threw them away 
Now it's been a month and not a word from you 
I am feeling better,I am now with your best friend Sue 
Never come back this way, we are cruisin' fine 
We have an understanding, I am not hers and she is not mine 
The blues have been evicted, they can no longer stay 
Once again, I threw them away 
What are you doing at my door with that smile 
You gave me a look with tears, like that of a lost child 
You are no longer needed here, get away from me 
Your love no longer has a way of blinding me 
I see you have your suitcase full of blues for me to play 
Neither them or you are invited to stay 
The neighbors call the police and report a domestic dispute 
The cops come and give me the boot 
I must go cool off at a friend's house for the night 
My house is cleaned out when I return in the daylight 
I lost in a game I was forced to play 
The blues seem to never quite go away

A Stolen Heart

For Gina Campbell my friend who has touched my life with her music



Her beauty umatched
Her slpender I surrender 
She is Genuine and of True Heart

In her eyes
She speaks
In her smile
as she stands before Thee
My heart is Stolen

Speechless!!!!
In the Quiteness
Much is said
Our hearts speak a pounding YES.

Our friendship has grown
Years have passed
It is Kismet!
Meant to Be!

All That These Eyes Have Yet To See

I am here again
As I was before
Break it down to knees 
And ask for no more 
Over a coarse of time 
You hear a certain voice in a rhyme
Bleed from the eyes 
Now you can feel the stress in our cries
A soft bed 
Despite a home with the dead
Is all that these eyes have yet to see
My mission
To rise to a higher position 
Reach out with white palms
Not frightened
But I'm no more peaceful
Than I am calm 
Heaven 
Is all these eyes have yet to see
It's a simple poem 
Spoken in a lower volume 
At times we speak 
On scattered thoughts
Shattered dreams
And memories 
Of every battle we've fought 
Every morning 
I'm awakened by your hands 
Bless it be 
The structure of this man 
A family and smiles
A happy expression 
On the face of a child 
is all that I have yet to see

No More

I waited all night long for you
with my eyes wide open.
I had an idea you wouldn't show...
Oh, but I was hopin'
Lying there on that old couch
and staring at the ceiling.
No matter how I tried,
I could not shake that feeling...
That I was being betrayed...
Forget the promises we made.
I've never been this hurt before...
No lies
No more.
Could you look me in the eyes
and just tell me,
What is this curse
that suddenly's befell me.
This is purgatory...
Hell's around the corner
for me...
I stood at Heaven's gate.
I held an angel to me...
But when I closed my eyes,
You really stuck it to me.
Just tell me,
what's it all for...
No more lies...
Look here, right into my eyes...
No more.

O Lord, You are our Father
We are the clay; You are the Potter
We are the work of Your hand
So mold us and shape us 
In Your perfect plan 	   (Chorus)

In the middle of Your wheel
We're yielded and still
To be vessels of mercy

In Your blaze of fiery wind
Purge us free from sin
To be vessels of honor
Filled with your living water

Make the broken new again
Sanctify and bring them in
To be vessels in His church
Prepared for every good work
And meet for the Master's use
Vessels bring Him forth much fruit
Prepare for His glory
Make known Your riches of glory - !

One Fateful Moment

I was nineteen, and he lived on my street. 
I don’t know when, I don’t know why,
But I ended knocked up and living in the streets. 
We were married, divorced, I guess that’s just the course of life.

‘Cause in one fateful moment everything changes. 
In one fateful moment life rearranges. 
In one fateful moment dreams can be shattered. 
And in one fateful moment, my life doesn’t matter.

Well I never figured, I was that way.
Until I saw her, on the subway one day.
We had some great times.
Together, we were happy and sad.

But in one fateful moment everything changes. 
In one fateful moment life rearranges. 
Catching her cheating, just wasn’t part of the plan. 
So now I’m running, running fast as I can. 

City, after city. State, after state.
I thought I was lost, couldn’t find my place. 
I was wondering how long I would last in life’s race. 
Then there was you, and you saw right through my disguise. 

It was that one fateful moment where everything changes. 
That one fateful moment where my life rearranges. 
Where my downs became ups, and my frowns were now smiles. 
Where my dreams come true, and my wish is just for you.

My one fateful moment was when I saw you.

In the Spotlight

After my years of struggle, playing small time gigs 
Right place, right time, I hit it big 
No longer will I face the rejections 
I now have an accountant doing my financial projections 
I make money, number one on the charts 
Love them, leave them, breaking the groupies hearts 
I have my paternity insurance through L of L 
It keeps me from any shotgun wedding bells 
Now my future looks so bright 
It is my destiny to be in the spotlight 
I am called a marketable commodity 
Not a one hit wonder as you will see 
Just got a call from my agent, now I'm back on the road 
Never want to lose that hunger, always go for the gold 
My next big hit will be better than the last 
Orange juice and uppers keep me moving fast 
In between shows, I sleep during the day and party all night 
There is so much pressure to remain in the spotlight 
There is no other career that can compare 
The amps booming and the smell of weed in the air 
To this way of life I have become a slave 
The doctor tells me if I don't slow down expect an early grave 
I am living my dream being a part of the lifestyles of the rich and shameless 
Gotta stay on top, who has time to take a rest 
If you can't be famous, be infamous, I believe that's right 
After a taste of it, you're addicted, you would sell your soul to stay in the spotlight 
I salute Mick, David and Axel and all those other die hard road performance 
junkies 
I went from a nobody to a star, but was never anyone's flunky 
I want to be like Hall and Oats, a non-stop hit machine 
I can't stop, I can't rest, there is no in between 
With the access to all the drugs, booze and women, it happens one night 
Eventually we all fall out of the spotlight

Old Tucker Brown

Old tucker brown wanted to
Go fishing,
He sat and planned his day
Of activity,
He got his fishing gear, with
His rubber boots in hand,
“Oh my gosh”
It is pouring cats and dogs,
Maybe a Cadillac,
One……
At the most, do not know the
Color…
For the clouds were so very
Black..
Well,
At least he thought it was,
You could see his anticipation
As he looked out the window
The excitement aroused as
A rainbow appeared..
He cried out…
With a big yell..
While the wind cease to
Sway….
Clouds dissipated over the little
Fishing pond..
Down the hill….
Well now, it stop  pouring cats
And dogs..
Therefore, he kept the Cadillac, which
Color I do not know..
“Oh My Lordy”
Indeed, it is a miracle for the big
Guy, seen fit to pour him out a
Coffee color Cadillac,
Four door Deville…
A platter of catfish and the
Trimmings 
Even a shrimp or two
My God, who can ask for
Anything more,
Except for me a pearl color
Escalade…
I wish…
But the story is about old
Tucker Brown...

Withering Away

You’re going to miss me when I’m gone
Home the one place I do not belong
As spoken in first person 
Sometimes life just is not worth the cursing
Infants, we casualties of less nursing
From this very instance, situation worsens
Walking in shadows
Follow this mysterious league of adults
Swallow my tears, but I cannot handle yours
For I fear you may dismantle 
Losing whom you truly adore
Purchase your freedom
But how much scrutiny can you afford
Gripping my throat, losing my edge
Slipping as a goat, choosing my pledge
Scandals out weigh my sledge
As it appears, I’m still breathing
Sincerely in days, I will be leaving 
Only hours foreshadow my doom 
Dreams no longer linger
As my nightmares loom
This darkened rose withers so soon
You’re going to miss me 
When I’m gone
Outcast, an unknown
Home, the one place I do not belong
You’re going to miss me when I’m gone

Troubled

Troubled I am
Thoughts no longer belong to me 
No longer mine 
A figure forever in-depth
Some what left behind
Forbidden desires
Truth being spoken 
From a mad mans mind
Spectators say what you will 
Think of gone 
Or at least until
I’ll be who I am 
No definition of family 
Yet I will always respond
Yes maim, thank  you, and please 
I will always take a coward from his knees
I will always look to your hands 
For royalties to be seized
I know not what is good 
I go about things wrong
My following being secular guidance 
Time and time again 
It’s the same refuted song
For these reasons 
I will never see a better home

Hill of the Lord

Who shall ascend into the Hill of the Lord?
Who shall dwell with Him there face to face?
Who shall abide in Your sanctuary Lord?
Who shall stand up in Your holy place?  (Chorus)

He whose walk is blameless
And he does what is right
He speaks the truth from his heart
But with his tongue will not backbite
He does his neighbor no wrong
Against him he speaks no slur
Honoring the God-fearing
He keeps a promise to his own hurt

{channel}
He shall receive the blessing of the Lord
And righteousness from the God of his salvation
And of those who seek the Lord, who seek his face
Despising what's vile, this is that generation

(Chorus)

He who has clean hands and pure heart
And to idols of vanity and conceit
He has not lifted up his soul
He has not sworn falsely with deceit
He does not lend his money with interest
And by him a bribe is never taken
For He who does these things
He shall never be shaken

{channel 2}
He who walks righteously and speaks what's right
The gain of extortion and bribery he hates
He stops his ears against plots of murder
And seeing evil his eyes will not contemplate

For he shall dwell on high
The mountain fortress will be his defence
His bread shall be supplied 
And water will never fail him

But even more than this, if this person is who you are
You shall see the king in all his beauty
And behold the land, the city that is afar

{channel}

Sun Shines

The sun shines
On the 
Wicked 
And righteous
The rain falls
On the
Just and 
The unjust

For His mercies are brand new
Every morning for me and you
So to the hills we should lift up our eyes
When we wake to another sunrise

While we
Were sinning
Against Him
Jesus died for us
And if you
Are sinning
Against Him
He's faithful and just

To forgive you of every sin
And cleanse you from all unrighteousness
If you turn from whatever is wrong
And  with godly sorrow confess... your need

For His mercies... are brand new
Every morning for me and you
So to the hills we should lift up our eyes
When we wake to another sunrise

Upon the clouds within the sky
We shall see Him as He is
And we shall be like Him

Rose, Precious

To my precious Rose 
To what do I owe thee
To someone special 
To look inside of me 
And you were right
It's what's inside that counts 
Now my dear rose 
to what might I amount 
Personality shed the truest feelings 
Sometimes tears are emotion killers 
But now my dear rose 
it seems your petals need healing 
And I could never turn my back on you 
Cause you never once 
Pretended to act what's true 
If it is love you see 
Then it is love in me 
And never again 
From your precious face 
Do I want to see a tear fall free 
Cause I know 
In my precious rose 
A tender heart there'll always be 
And sometimes beauty kills 
But from you 
My heart is what beauty steals 
Though we face temptation 
I only bring what's real 
And sometimes what's deep 
Is so hard to feel 
But for my precious rose 
No one else knows
But for you my heart grows

The Invitation

If you had just married a wife
Then were invited to The Banquet
The greatest wedding feast ever to be told
Would you say that you can't go
Or accept the royal invitation
And take with you
The one you now have to hold

Our Heavenly Father requests the honor 
Of your presence at the marriage of His Son
To the Bride arrayed in righteousness; blessed are those invited 
The wedding banquet is ready; will you come?  (Chorus)

If you had just purchased land 
Then received The Wedding Invitation
From the King to His palace of gold
Would you go look to His interests
Or ask to be excused
To see the field 
In which you had been sold

If you had just gained merchandise
And were invited to The Dinner
To sit with the righteous and the bold
Would you refuse the King's table
Or hurry first at His request
Then let your business
Multiply one hundred fold

(Chorus)

[Bridge]
If you give your regrets or do not respond
You will not receive the garments of fine linen
You will not taste His banquet like the many who are called
Only to the Few will the place of honor be given
And His house shall be filled when they are compelled
From the highways and byways and even from the hedges
From the streets and alleys they're accepted and chosen
For wedding garments and to eat the Bread of Heaven

Come Up Here!

Rise up!  Rise up and Come up here
Because Jesus Christ is ready to appear
The Day of Judgment is drawing near
So rise up!  Before He says come up here  (Chorus)

A time will come, and now it is
When those who are dead
Will hear the Son of God's voice
And those who hear, they shall live
For the Life in Christ quickens
Those who make Him their choice

   Because the life the Father has to make the dead arise
   He has granted to his Son to give unto them
   Who are pleased to cross over from death unto life
   But you must believe in Christ and live your life for him

A time will come, so marvel not
When those who are in their graves
Will hear the Lord's voice
And everyone of them shall come out
To receive judgment or reward
 According to their own choice

   Those who have done good shall resurrect unto God's life
   But those who have done evil shall only rise to be condemned
   So to enter in the Gate and walk the Way you must strive
   Remember this, if he doesn't come first, he may call you to Him
   
Rise up!  Rise up and Come up here
Because Jesus Christ is ready to appear
The Day of Judgment is drawing near
So rise up!  Before He says come up here  (Chorus)

THE ROAR OF A DEPARTING AIRPLANE

Like the dreams in your daily horoscope
that come alive within the pages of an astrology' book...
written by someone who reads into the distant stars:
the roar of a departing airplane, disappearing into clouds,
is your crude awakening to reality...
finding everything else, but me!

I booked my flight in a hurry last night,
everything we  secretly shared lost its sense of delight;
I shouldn't remember when the times
when I came to you and brought you roses!

Like all the words that sound too sweet,
I let them go inside me so true and deep;
another destination, another lonely city...
where I'll settle down and face a clueless destiny!
There I'll find more women easy to love,
making no demands, pretenting to give;
in their arms,with skin smelling of perfume,
I'll  dream of you...when those roses bloom!

Nothing can keep me here,
even pity can't move me;
we started a passion full of flames,
forgetting about our tender ways!
Everything seemed everlasting...
never thinking of a sad ending! 

The loud road of a departing airplane
shouts off the sound of this voice;
I ask for forgiveness with my tears,
but you can't be found anywhere!

Pray About It

Are you Okay about it?
Are you in disarray about it?
Then I have another question-
Have you prayed about it?

If you feel swayed about it,
If you feel delayed about it,
Then answer my question-
Have you prayed about it?

Did you get upstaged about it?
Have you been betrayed about it?
Well, even through your testin'-
Did you pray about it?

When you're outweighed about it,
When you're enslaved about it
Tell me, during the lesson-
Do you pray about it?

If you feel crazed about it?
If you feel dazed about it?
Then answer my question-
Have you prayed about it?

Are you enraged about it?
Even if you're Okay about it?
Then I have another question-
Have you prayed about it?

Broken Hearts Bar

This is the place where they come to escape the stress in their lives 
A lot is from their husbands and wives 
This place gives them a lift 
The regulars start swooping in at 10 am from a long night shift 
At one time or another, everyone hurts and bears some kind of painful scars 
You can find all kinds of emotional burden here at the Broken Hearts Bar 
The doctors, the suits, the welders, we get them all 
Others escape by attempting to crank out a tune on the piano facing the west wall 
After a few drinks, everybody starts feeling well 
The alcohol numbs and strips away our protective shell 
Everyone enjoys talent night, it makes them feel good 
Distorted by the liquid courage, they believe this is their ticket to Hollywood 
A taxi driver of 23 years, complains about his back 
He has his pain killers with a double shot of Jack 
There is always a place for my down and out guests 
I lend an ear and allow them to get it off their chest 
The winners and losers come here because they are accepted for who they are 
Everyone is welcomed to the city's center of depression, the Broken Hearts Bar 
George tells me tonight he will be visiting for the last time 
He says this every night right around nine 
George takes a moment to reflect on the troubles of his past 
He tells me it's true, nice guys finish last 
So long, my time is near 
I will become a nobody and disappear 
He tells all his friends to keep reaching for the stars 
I smile and tell him, there is always a stool for you at the Broken Hearts Bar 
Yeah, I know here the door swing in and out 
I thought maybe at the bottom of one my drinks I would discover what life is all 
about 
The emotion in the air is thick like tar 
Please come again to the Broken Hearts bar

SMALL HEART

Small heart,
don't stop getting bigger...
beat gladly under my care;
small heart,
you have never been
without kindness...
even when you felt sad
and were set apart!

Small heart,
be still good and kind...
even if some may not like:
the equality you share in your glow,
and the sincerity you show
in each beat!

Small heart,
don't keep me from grieving;
small heart,
listen to the helpless children
who are stripped of their innocence:
to be able of changing
the lustful hearts 
that need forgiving...
while they are punished
for their lewdness! 

Small heart,keep on giving,
and if you suffer...don't say anything;
forget your sorrow and worries for a short while:
even you deserve to be happy,
to stand still and idle away...
to revive your numb senses and really feel alive!

Friends

Memories so fondly savored
Sad times forgotten in the race
Closely holding  moments favored
That were once so common place

Whisper thrills swift fingered riffs
Linger ghosting in my mind
Soft  melodic intermingles
Nostalgic stroking intertwined

Sweet bravado overcomes us
Leaning in to touching minds
Words aflow in rushing reason
Like leaves within their blushing season
While harvest time unwinds

Thus we try to stem the flow
Holding to each other so
Singing softly as we go 
Of times too long ago



(friend wrote a melody....this is a too trite try at words)

Above Me

There's no heaven above me 
And the world's getting mighty ugly 
I need a good heart to come and hug me 
Father the world's getting ugly
And it seems there's no heaven above me
As I sit starring at the wall 
From the sky, I watch the stars fall
Given this talent, this oddly balance 
I never had a mother or father 
Who brought into this world and why bother? 
Death being a made sacrifice 
Who wants to live twice in this life? 
Tidal waves, mud slides, and desperate housewives 
Baby girl go lay your thoughts down and get some rest 
Let go of your stress & lay your head across my chest 
Just let me burn, calm at sea 
Just read my palms and let me be, cant you see 
There's no heaven above me 
And the world's getting mighty ugly 
Needs a good heart to come and hug me 
Father the world's getting ugly
And it seems there's no heaven above me
Granted that we are promised, "A second coming" 
Blown trumpets, Reckoning of angels humming 
Now maybe time won't consume my soul
Pneumonia tunes my cold 
My shoulders going global
Yet when my tears got heavy, I never once faltered 
Right beside me, now I'm cursed at the alter 
Webster define me love
In my heart, something warm tells me to look above
My lord, you be with those acquaintance, my friends 
Cause tomorrow looking foggy thru this lenses
And I miss being a kid 
But how can I reminisce on the things I never did
The storms getting closer
Maybe I'll see the Rapture, through a holster 
I put my life on that poster, piss on it & let it burn 
No worry, It's none of your concern 
Still, there’s no heaven above me 
And the world's getting mighty ugly 
Needs a good heart to come and hug me 
Father the world's getting ugly
And it seems there's no heaven above me

A PLAYBOY LIKE ME

I didn't recognize your need,
and it only showed once
in those beautiful eyes of yours;
I was attracted to others
in ways I can't describe...
others less sincere than you for a good time,
not  listening to the words you were saying...
ignoring all your passion when you smiled;
was there an honesty I didn't see,
or a fantasy you have been resisting?

I used everybody for my crazy urges
and staring at my empty hands...
I'm so sorry to have lived up to this lie,
is there any quick way
I can cleanse them
and forget where I've been
or what I have done when
 I stepped out of the line;
is there another way for me 
to end this sad goodbye?


I made you wonder
and wait forever,
rising your fever even more...
when I spoke with my sexy voice 
and prouded myself of my affairs;
I laughed with carelessness,
considering none of your emotions...
taking away your only choice!
   
Now,don't ask me if I should stay
or what price I'm going to pay;
you can't change a playboy like me...
please look for somebody you can easily subdue,  
who can give you his sincere love and be true!

Starting Over Again

Whatever happened to the time we used to spend
Whatever happened to my long and faithful friend
And not matter how my heart will seem to mend
I'm tired of starting all over and over again
Whatever happened to the love that we were in 
Whatever happened to the dreams that we'd begin
And no matter how my life will seem to mend
I'm tired of starting all over and over again	(Chorus)

I see the signs of yesterday yet I won't assume
Because I know what that will make of me and you
But I see the same old patterns every week and weekend
There's not a change so I have a hard time believin'
Yet I don't want to judge the future looking at our past
But if I can't depend on you then how can we ever last
I just can't deal with going through the same old thing
And your actions speak so loud you've left me wondering 

(Chorus)

If you're dedicated to me give me more of your time
Than you give to any other, let them know that you're mine
If you're committed to me, be faithful, kind and true
And remember you said you love me the way I love you
So history won't repeat itself you'll do whatever it takes
By always saying what you mean, doing all that you say
To make us work, keep our dreams, here's one last chance
For you to put your love in action and give a little romance

(Bridge)

Cause every man will proclaim his unfailing love
But what girl can find a faithful man she can trust
She just can't deal with going through the same old thing
And your actions speak so loud you've left her wondering 

Whatever happened to the time we used to spend
Whatever happened to my long and faithful friend
And not matter how my heart will seem to mend
I'm tired of starting all over and over again
Whatever happened to the love that we were in 
Whatever happened to the dreams that we'd begin
And no matter how my life will seem to mend
I'm tired of starting all over and over again	(Chorus)

The Blues Can Be So Mean

The blues they have me down, sometimes they can be so mean 
Yeah they have me down and sometimes they can be so mean 
Suicidal thoughts, they got me caught in between 
They can be so mean, they have me caught in between 
I try to be romantic and buy my wife a bouquet of flowers 
But with her bad news, she brings a dozen showers 
She tells me we can no longer live on dreams 
She is like the blues, leaving me caught in between 
Suicide may be the best way out 
I try to tell her what the blues are all about 
The blues they have me down, sometimes they can be so mean 
My wife tells me she's gone, we cannot live on dreams 
No forward address to contact her, cannot even say hello 
I feel for her, the stress from bills and money we owe 
I wonder which way to turn, which way I should go 
If I decide suicide, does the fire eater really collect my soul 
How much more can I truly bear 
I have no hope, I am in such deep despair 
The grass is never greener on the other side as it seems 
The blues can be so heartless, they can be so mean

Do You Love Me?

Know that I love you, but do you love me
Lord you know I do, well then feed my sheep
Know that I love you, but do you love me
Lord you know I do, well then tend my sheep		(Chorus)

And once there was a time when you were young and on you own
You did the things you wanted to but now that you have grown
You shall stretch forth your hands and another will dress you
He shall lead you in the will that I have for you to do

So come follow me, remember what you've heard and seen
And show forth My love over land and over sea
So come follow me, Remember what you've heard and seen
And show forth the love that you have for Me  		(Bridge)

(Chorus)

And don't be anxious just to know what I have for someone else
The work that I have given you is sufficient of itself
You're here to do the Father's will that's what I've given you
Obey my voice, I will direct you in all you have to do

So come follow me, remember what you've heard and seen
And show forth My love over land and over sea
So come follow me, Remember what you've heard and seen
And show forth the love that you have for Me  		(Bridge)

Know that I love you, but do you love me
Lord you know I do, well then feed my sheep
Know that I love you, but do you love me
Lord you know I do, well then tend my sheep		(Chorus)

I STOP AT NOTHING

With so many choices and demands,
it's hard living with only one preference
when the force of giving
is stronger than my unexplored desires;
I live freely and stop at nothing...
as long as my night sparkles with stars!

The real side of me
 is the resemblance of reality;
my words reflect my true feelings,
and this smile won't deny you anything...
with thoughts never kept to myself,
or being afraid to say a sweet something!

With each word clearly spoken out,
there's no mistake in hearing my honesty,
and all you have to do...is listen carefully;
my time will be spent purposefully
with the one I'll pick out of the anxious crowd:
to shout her beautiful name so aloud! 

If words of a romantic song aren't  meaningful    
and the music has no harmony,
there will be no room for chemistry;
and the longer it plays the more it sounds awkward,
to make me realize I've lost another chance
at having you all mine...when I still dare to dance
and stop at nothing until all the words are said
and all the smiles fade out leaving me cold!

                                     It helps me make it through the night

Jesus is Coming

In an eye's twinkle
Jesus is coming
For a church without wrinkle 
Or any such thing
So be holy and blameless
Jesus is coming
For a church without blemish
Or any such thing  (Chorus)

If judgment will begin in the Lord's on house
By the cleansing of the Word for a radiant spouse,
Then what will be the end of those whose ways are broad
Who do not obey the very Word of God?

[channel]
While people are saying, "Safety and peace,"
Destruction will come upon them suddenly
But for you who are walking as children of Light
That Day should not surprise as a thief in the night

(Chorus)

And if God's righteous people are scarcely saved,
If God's holy people just barely escapes
The Judgment to come with great terror and fear
Then where shall the ungodly and sinner appear?

[channel 2]
When the heavens pass away with a shrill sound,
The earth with everything will burn to the ground.
Now since the elements will melt with fervent heat,
What manner of godly people should we be?
~~~~~~
In an eye's twinkle
Jesus is coming
For a church without wrinkle 
Or any such thing
So be holy and blameless
Jesus is coming
For a church without blemish
Or any such thing  (Chorus)

For Man

It’s a journey man
Did all go accordingly to plan
I swear it was a journey for man
The results of a plotted hand
It’s a journey man

The forgotten me 
Souvenirs of a begotten plea 
Did you think I’d change
Do you miss me 
Do not beg upon things 
You do not wish to see
Was it a journey?
Twenty years 
I’ve survived in this tourney
Laid it down 
And across my face 
Would become a smirk
A gift 
A treasure  
For those whom would mourn me 
Given thought 
Simply driven 
By the misery happiness brought
I stand, I rest 
As I breathe 
I demand to receive 
What you have in your chest 
Simple flaws of a failure
The sorrow from my eyes 
In no other words could I tell you 

It’s a journey for man
Did all go accordingly to plan
I swear it’s been a journey for this man
The results of plotted hand
It’s a journey man

My Philosophy

Wisdom, the treasure beyond my steps
Here, undo the pleasure behind being left
Perhaps I should paint myself
Sadly here lately, I ain’t been myself
Life is not hard 
It’s just not simple 
Mark the laps of ages 
Forms of life written on tear stained pages
Your coherent view has now been refuted
My template of whispers, merely muted 
Life is not hard 
It’s just not simple
For all the things that beg upon me
A blind song for the average man to see
And if this attempt fails
Then just maybe the thought will prevail 
Life is not hard
It's just not simple

Beneath Your Feet (Song)

From the first of my birth
Until my dying days 
I lived life expecting the worse in every case
Night times I couldn’t sleep
Seemed stress had me over whelmed
To strong to weep 
A fatal crush no individual would care to keep
An unforgiving face no man was prepared to meet 
Through the mud and water
Brutal thuds, a careless mans order
I smiled only to allow my spectators to live worry free
In my deepest thoughts
I only visualized those who would stand and burry me
Ashes to ashes, mysterious flashes 
Unto my final lay
My surroundings seem to hurry me
What else is one suppose to do
A failing adolescent whom rose to truth
Dreamt upon soothing times
To remove me from these shackles in my mind
A prison, a convict’s yard 
I couldn’t escape, seems the sun picks the bar’d 
A broken ornament, a gift from the scar’d 
The emotional down pours that reveal who we are
Who’s to say I’d never change 
Only to grow to be the same tainted man
Reality dawns upon my blister painted hands 
From alternators and scrap metal parts 
Only to submit them to junk yards 
For a true earned strained heart
That’s no lie; I learned my true hand to poverty
Casualties missing me, meant to be slobbery
Imprints of a father chasing after me
Now that the world prays me gone 
I reside beneath my own shadow 
Dwell against this concrete walk way all alone
No regret spots for me, suffering is my only home
Shall it be a merciful dawn, once it’s all shown?
Questions for which I can not answer on my own
Teary nights, not enough said in past conversations 
Deep within your regrets I could feel you mourn
A painful constipation
Subordinate clauses, fallen from the wrong information
Now above the stars 
I’m sheltered in my own constellation 
So go on, bury me
To my enemies, this is the last of me
Please bury me
No interest in your sympathy
Bury me

I Want to Cry

It's been another rainy day
Since I left that special place
There are you- here am I-
It's been another starless night
Since I took that lonesome flight
There are you- here am I-
And I want to cry-

Will the sun come out today?
Or will it still just hide away?
Cause there are you- here am I-
And will the moon shine tonight?
Or will the clouds put up a fight?
Cause there are you- here am I-
 And I want to cry-

I want to cry, but how can I let my feelings show -
How will you ever know~ when you are there and I am here?
I want to cry, but how can I share my tears with you - 
How will you feel it's true~ when you are there and I am here?
When I am here-?

Can the clouds and lights above
Express the longing of my love?
Cause there are you- here am I- 
And can all nature mourn the fate
Of two souls who separate?
Cause there are you- here am I-
And I want to cry-

It's been another rainy day
Since I left that special place
There are you- here am I-
It's been another starless night
Since I took that lonesome flight
There are you- here am I-
And I want to cry-

On leaving Meiningen, Germany
A song for Kirsten Amthor

THE QUICKEST SPARK

I'm not a gullable guy
who settles for less;
and I like to see
more women like yourself!

If freedom is what you choose,
it's fine...as long as it 
won't defeat my purpose,
and keep my ego intact!

Be as patient
as you can be,
men must protect
and love their women...
in ways to amaze them;
and it still holds true today!

I'm not looking for heart-breaks,
to watch tears fall down a woman's face;
I'll break the rules and compromise
when the need arises!

Men,love your women a lot,
give them true affection
and ignite in them more passion
with the quickest spark:
to feel what most men are afraid to show...
for the fear of losing their adored pride!  

The quickest spart
is a surest way to an eager heart;
the quickes spark
can give bring light where it was awfully dark!

True Warrior

The presence of a giant in a frame so small
Heart of a warrior standing tall
The soul of an angel with the touch of a child
She walks so proud on the longest mile

She won’t give up, it’s a fight to the end
May have lost the battle, but won the right to ascend
And after she’s gone when there’s no more pain
The memory of her touch will remain

A True Warrior with unshakeable faith
The battle that she fought would make most runaway
A True Warrior, A Gentle giant inside
Dealing with a monster, she kept her dignity and pride

The hour draws close, her time is at hand
As she prepares her journey to a promised land
The peace that awaits and calls to her soul
Has her name etched in light on a heavenly scroll

Her battle’s nearly done and her war draws to a close
To face this monster is a path she freely chose
But look up in the sky pretty soon you’ll see a light
As she’s held in the arms of an angel tonight

SOMETHING OF A SECRET

Nobody has to know
whatever happened between us                         
that made us glow;
let this remain something of a secret,
this man knows where it lies...
hidden from others, not from us!
And you woman, keep it inside
as long as you live...it's as deep as pride!

Erase my number from your cell phone,
not let him see it...
don't make him suspect
that I even exist in reality:
make it look like a shadow passing...
leaving no traces along;
when I take what's not mine...I feel so guilty,
but it won't stop me from taking!   

Let this remain something of a secret,
let's it confide it to a moon that's so scarlet;
a silent moon who hears the lovers' whispers...
and turns them into real, sweet whishes!

Let's die for a moment's bliss,
deny our reality and hysterically laugh;
this is not cheating on somebody
who didn't finish what he started off...  
we're free and need not to worry,
and if there's a price to pay:  we will! 

We're not kids who are kept from indulgence,
we are responsible for our own tendencies...
challenging those who oppose us with rage,
changing what others can barely change...
to let this remain something of a secret!

SEEKING REVELATION

I travel the whole land
of blistering sun and whirring wind
to seek revelation;
and I come from the deep south,
delivering my freight to the north:
making of  this lonely life a damnation...

I drive past Dallas,
the city of cowboys...
to chase the fumes 
of your burning engine;
you didn't leave a note
or didn't bother to call...
your wavy,brown hair 
blowing and glowing and
you laugh  in your
Chevy convertible;
who's that man you are talking to?
Am I being trashed by you?

I spent long hours driving, 
hearing my own voice 
trailing off into silence...
even my words have no meaning;
there's no strenght and main:
to assure me I won't die in vain!

I trave the whole land
to seek revelation
through cities with steel and glass skycrapers
and busy habors jammed with sailships;
I stop for the night at a nearby hotel
to go to sleep...to dream dreams 
I can't imagine to be real,
why haven't I used my intuition?

I've been trying to save money
to buy the dream-home you dreamed of;
but in the hush and rush of this daily living,
I've neglected your feminity...
but the most important thing you wished for:
was to have me beside you and feel complete!

IMPOSE YOUR WILL

Impose your will and convince me
to stay always with you,because I
won't take love seriously;
because I weasel my way through
and suddenly forget about you!

Let me know all your desires,
and however big they may be...
I can make them come true for you;
it's time I did some right 
and make you feel the warm light,
to show you the tenderness
of my generous heart...
come closer,let's build dreams for two!

Impose your will and hold my hand
when my thoughts are hard to surrender,
and I run to others who 
use love just like I do;
give me that special reason to stay...
if I don't feel alive,take that pain away! 

How long has it been,
you haven't felt the tenderness 
and the real joy;
how many happy moments
you have imagined,
but always missed...
although you were here beside me,
to make me see I wasn't alone?

Impose your will,
so that I can live!

Sleepless Nights

I once again wake up in the early am
I wonder where all this began
You are the reason why I toss and turn
It's being near you for your love is what I yearn
But here I am alone in the twilight
You are the reason for my sleepless nights
If I had the courage to tell you
Maybe I would sleep past two
But til then I will hide how I feel
Too afraid of rejection if I reveal
How my heart jumps when we speak and I can look your eyes
Once again at night alone and alone I cry
The urge to tell is so strong, even though my tunnel has no light
I thank you for the sleepless nights
Soon you find out from a friend of a friend
So now I can no longer pretend
We talk about how we feel, we agree it must be fate
Now everyday just to see you, I can't wait
We are now engaged and you are a bride to be
I thank you for all in the world you have given me
I still struggle, but now it's with happiness and delight
Thank you my love for the sleepless nights

Caught In Between

I leave in my pickup to work in town 
Then your men start coming around 
I treat you like a queen as you should be 
When I arrive home, there is nothing for me 
Your arms are cold, your words are mean 
Should I stay, should I go, I am caught in between 
You say let's works things out please don't leave 
I gave you my heart, you give nothing in return, you are a thief 
I am sorry, it's time move on 
Before this you were already gone 
Oh how it hurts to tell you goodbye 
Outside I seem tough, but inside I cry 
Your arms are cold, your words are so mean 
Should I stay, should I go, I am caught in between 
Too little too late, I cannot stay 
Long ago you pushed me away 
Please do not call, do not write 
I have been beaten emotionally, I will no longer fight 
I will run to live another day 
I don't think you care what I do anyway 
I have lived in your world of broken dreams 
Should I stay, should I go, I am caught in between

IF GOD WILL

If God will,
it is well
that we love in unity
just for the eternity!

If until now you didn't feel
anything for me;
if until this day you didn't
want to believe me
when I talked to you 
about happiness...
now, it's strange that you
realize what my words
can do to an unbeliever,
unbeliever like you!

It could be pity,or
just that you need to talk
to someone about
the long put-off tommorrow
that brought you fear!

Let's love one another...
let's avoid being those two fools
bringing ruin to each other;
if God will,
we'll be happier
than ever before
and we'll never look
at the dark side of things,
because love and closeness
will get hold of us!
If God will,
we'll be dependable from the start
and plan things to improve the weakness
that ripped us apart!

If God will, 
it is well
that we love in unity
just for the eternity!

NAKEDNESS

Nakedness is seen
by a coscience in conflict;
nakedness is the fear
of hearts shunning their guilt...

It will be incredibly beautiful
to gently fall in a deep sleep,
hop on one of those clouds and float
on a lovely,unending and surreal dream...

Like Adam and Eve,
we'll be completly alone and safe;
innocent and unaware
of our own nakedness:
to wander off into the wilderness
with Guardian Angels on our side...

Wouldn't it be an awful pity
to lose all that is blessed,good and nice
for taking somebody's else wrong advice
and be found unworthy of joy?

It will be conceivably easy
to ascape from reality:
only loving ourselves timelessly;
thinking of happy thoughts
as we contemplate the endless stars
that that seem to welcome our sensuality...

Wouldn't it be wonderful
to be so thankful
to the Mighty Lord,
and to trust in His promise of prosperity...
than to be defeated by misery?

Nakedness is considered sleazy and lame
by eyes that are lascivious and unholy; 
nakedness is felt conspicuously
when we stare at our naked bodies in shame...

BECAUSE FORGIVENESS...

You certainly feel no guilt
for your uncontrolled emotions
showing a need for resistance,
a sign of a certain insistence;
oh,you are untrustworthy and restless
disregarding all of the consequences
and unable to pull out of this mess,
but you can prevent all that!

Let me tend to your need today,
and I won't compromise my fidelity
over a foolish urge of mine:
let me rise to the challenge
and give you another chance to change,
because forgiveness
is the true voice of a selfless heart;
because forgiveness
wipes off all resentment
with a joyful smile...

Tomorrow seems a long way off
and when it comes, it won't plead;
it'll sweep you aside:
erasing your frantic laugh,
to make you regret all that you missed,
all that you didn't give...

I have kept my loyalty;
now,give up your vanity...

THE SOUL OF THIS UNORDINARY MAN

The more you touch the soul
of this unordinary man,
still untouched by love,
the sooner I feel confident
to meet the shining eyes
of an uncommon,trustworthy friend;
and the more you give of yourself,
the quicker I'm motived by kindness
and willing to share those intimate moments
when a rainbow promises no rain...

Live inside my bloodstream,
to reach your way to a delightful dream;
touch me with confidence,I'll be
as gentle as the spring' breeze:
to strip our sad souls of all unneeded lies,
and love each other in this earthly Paradise!

The more you touch the soul
of this unordinary man,
the sooner I see a sky without clouds;
not relying on hopes and promises,
but to have the inner courage
to be in the middle of the stage...
where many are afraid to stand
and reveal everything to the silent world!

Let's bond our destinies,
and live a life without bounderies;
we trusted fate to show us
an easier way out :
with no worries,heartbreaks or tears,
but we've finally found out 
that we must learn to please,
and be satisfied with little joys!

The more you touch the soul,
of this unordinary man,
the faster I become whole;
I sought worthless fortunes
in the mist of aloness...
what would I have gained,
if I had blindly followed
the shadow of my own sadness?

Learn Somethin'

come here little girl, let me learn you a thing or two
livin' in the hood is a very hard thing to do
you gotta know the rules, how to move, never have a clue
never let'em know how you move, keep it true
true to yourself, to your square, where you at girl

rule number 2 keep some mase or some pepper spray
rule number 1 is keep a gun but she played it safe
she massed her in the face and showed her what suppose to taste like
the girl pulled out a knife and cut her stomach by the waistline
know she on the floor cryin' with the evidence
but what she didn't know was that the pretty girl was preganat
learn somethin', learn somethin', listen little girl let me learn you a thing or two
learn somethin', learn somethin', livin' in the hood is very hard thing to do

DENISE

An attractive woman like you
gets the attention of all men under thirty;
Denise,I don't expect you
to dress like a convent nun...
There are other ways to look sexy;
beside the latest fashion clothes
and glamorous,irresistible looks...
Denise,youcan still have fun!  

Many are the dangers outhere,
some of the guys will hurt you with lies...
not this guy you refuse to talk to!
A  sudden,unwise decision
will influence your attitude,
then your freedom will shred
into a thousand pieces
and disappear into thin air!
It's time you used some wisdom
and showed some consideration!

Denise,put all your trust in me...
I've dated girls who had gotten
in unpleasant situations,
because of their silly intentions;
don't be like them,Denise...
turn around and listen to me,
and you won't be entrapped again! 

Oh,Denise...beautiful Denise,
I kissed you first in the April moonlight;
and I hate see another hold you in that light!
Oh,Denise...beautiful Denise,
our dream can't crumble before our very eyes; 
give it a new life...so that it can shine like stars!

GOING DOWN THE WRONG ROAD

Without a plausible answer,
you let the good dreams live in the achiever...
dreams,not thoughts of an unduly child:
changing domitable ways to wild,
shouting harmful and volatile words!

Brother,you're going down the wrong road,
and that is not going to lift 
some of the weight off;
the barriers won't quickly come down...
they'll cause only division and more grief:
to lay dangers in places so unseen...
that's when everything falls apart,
unable to replace it with something with worth!

Without aspiration or natural passion,
you stop half-way through and stare at others
with envy,anger and defiance;
you feed on your contention
and instead of wishing well to those
who have made it through hard strides,
you deride,mortify and dehumanize anyone 
who has earned what you have not!

Brother,you're going down the wrong road
to make your existence so worthless...
like a stone that keeps rolling down a stream
without knowing where it will lead;
brother,it's not hurting others that matters;
it's depriving yourself of all that's good...
to make your journey safe and painless!

IN REAL LIFE

Now,I only see you in my dreams,
but in real life I have lost you;
I shouldn't have been so afraid of you...
when  you needed somebody's
open hand to hold yours;
I held back, and let another  kiss your lips...
I let you slip through my fingers:
all I can feel is emptiness and remorse!

Now,I only see you in my dreams,
but in real life I have lost you;
I never realized how lucky I was;
it is a great pity not to have you...
I didn't find the right words
to explain this hidden feeling!
I have been hanging on to it
for a quite time,and never said
a word about it:  so many 
chances passed me by!
Now,I only see you in my dreams,
but in real life I have lost you...

Blessed is the Man

Blessed is the man
      Who does not walk in advice of the wicked
Blessed is the man
      Who does not stand in the way of the sinners
Blessed is the man
      Who does not sit in the seat of the scornful
Blessed is the man
      And only he will stand	(Chorus)

For in the law of the Lord is his delight
And in His law he meditates day and night
Therefore, he shall be - planted like a tree
By the rivers of water and his green leaf
Shall not wither, but in season he yields his fruit
And God shall prosper whatever he will do

      In His righteous way hearing all God has to say
      He will shine more and more unto the perfect day (because)

(Chorus)

But the wicked are not so, they're like the chaff
Blown away by the wind and that's not the half
The ungodly shall not stand in the judgment
Nor will sinners congregate with the righteous
For the way of the ungodly shall perish
But God watches over everyone who'll cherish

      His righteous way and all that they hear Him say
      And they will shine more and more unto the perfect day (because)

(Chorus)

Rollin' In My Pacer

My girl dumped me, she couldn't hack it 
She said it was her or my fake leather jacket 
We were together for 30 days 
This jacket has cozied up to six Shaneyneys 
Judy is my next target, so now I will have to chase her 
I am the Mac Daddy rollin' in my Pacer 
Camielle comes along and tempts my fate 
Judy is now off the slate 
Women need to use more self control 
I am too much, I am hard to hold 
Tomorrow there will be another one in line 
I will not mess with her if she looks like the bride of Frankenstein 
My dad is stressed, he's really working his pacemaker 
I take him to the hospital, he's riding shotgun in my Pacer 
The hospital will keep him over night 
I buy some Mad dog 20/20, it's time to get tight 
I am called the next day to pick him up 
I tell him no ride, if you don't have a lid for that cup 
I get pulled over for a sobriety test 
The cop tells me I don't look my best 
He makes me walk the long straight line 
Then count forwards and backwards between 1 and 9 
He tells me my car is so ugly, he's got to shoot me with his tazer 
After the jolt I am allowed to leave steady rollin' in my Pacer

WHAT ARE THE COLORS OF YOUR RAINBOW?

There was an unhappy man,
who used to dream alone;
and he lived life day by day
as it sadly shimmers away...

What are the colors of your rainbow?
Can you change that outlook of dispised misery,
and be part of this human race?
If they are dark like the clouds of a storm...
you can make up your own lively colors,
and feel the new spirit breath in you suddenly!

What are the colors of your rainbow?
Would you consider a change,
or go on wishing what it could have been?
Inside of you there's something hidden,
afraid of being revealed and told;
be honest with yourself,
be kind and loudly laugh...
life is a great gift and must be lived!  

I spotted the same man, down my block,
reading the daily paper,
he was well-dressed
and ready for success:
shining shoes and a matching tie,
friends surrounded him with pleasure;
I gess he didn't fall for that lie...
he has finally found what changed his luck!

THE SIMPLEST SMILE

It only takes the simplest smile
to make someone yours
and don't be surprised if
everything turns out well;
sometime an unexpected smile
can start an unquenchable fire!

Don't ever impress anyone
by thinking that you are invincible,
and there are no others
sexier or more beautiful;
does someone always falls 
for external beauty,instead
of  what is really inside? 
Does anyone stare with lustful eyes,
and suddenly fantasize... 
to have found the perfect one?

It takes only the simplest smile
to attract somebody so nice,
who'll share your same ideals...
to weave amazing dreams
without a web of lies on the unfaithful mind; 
can you find that one in a millions of souls? 

After you start giving everything,
be sure you you don't wind up with nothing;
don't be deceived by a false appearance...
don't be impressed,if that is just a pretense!

HANDSOME

Fornication is
another detestful
sin of the soul,
and I resist it because
of someone's else
deserved happiness...

They call me handsome,
and that compliment
doesn't flatter me,
despite its sincerity; 
I could be the guy they seek
and long to hold ...
my looks don't deceive anyone,
because I'm pretty outspoken!

They all call me handsome,
the real man of their dreams...
if only one could convince me;
my intentions are clear,
and I don't intend to interfere,
or cause anybody 
a single heartbreak...
'till reality  forces them to forsake!

I'd rather stay faithful to my darling,
trust her when I'm out-at-sea sailing;
and I find more pleasure in one,
worthy of being loved...than
making up exscuses and lies
and pay the ultimate prize!

The victory will be mine...
fidelity will win me a crown;
and passion will  be something wild:
a flame declaring the truest love around!

DARLING,I STILL REMEMBER

As the warm rain falls down
on this lovely and lonely town,
I'm all alone thinking of you;
but what I can't understand...
is why you wouldn't comprehend
what was my reason for loving you!

Darling,I still remember
how it was back then...
we were kissing and dreaming
in the shadows on that empty
meadow;  we laid on the grass 
and made the sweetest love!
Darling,I still remember
how it was back then...
the green grass was as soft
as your baby' skin;             
and like two children at play,
we felt so glad to be sharing!

As night' people hurry down the empty,
wet streets at sunrise,my thoughts go back
to a time when we laughed with the streets' clowns,
who stared at us under  wide,dripping umbrellas...
showering us with smiles to cheer us up!        
Life was ours and we were happy to see...
that love had open our lovers' eyes,
and made us the luckiest to be alive!

Darling,I still remember how was back then...
our yesterdays lasted like summers without end;
darling,I still remember how was back then;
our tomorrows are dreams built in the sand...

MARILYN

Marilyn,
don't displease your only friend;
yust for once take my advice:
your next step is simply wrong...
Marilyn,
your way isn't right to choose!

Marilyn,
please don't go now;
you will never know:
how much pain
and misery
you can leave me;
your farewell kiss
will be your only memory!

Marilyn, think it over...
don't give anything over...
this seems a sacrifice you never did;
hide no secret, I'll understand!

Marilyn, I have been the first
to take hold of your empty hand;
can you give me up so fast?
Yesterday you said you never would!
Marilyn,
don't hope
to find another man, 
who will appreciate
you as much as I always do...
it can be so hard for you!

A MOTHER'S ABSENCE

A lonely boy,barely seventeen,
writing sad and lovely words
from a small room with open shades
overlooking Everett's skyline: 
a lovely and quite town
in the suburbs of Boston...

Mother,distance is counted in miles,
but to miss what inspires me
is quite unmmeasurable
and verbally indescribable
mother,days become nights...
and momorable moments
cheer me up when I should cry,
and be comforted by your tenderness!  

Daddy,left from this very place of truce,
with a glance cold and undignified,
his plane flew over Long Island
where you courageously thrive on;
he betrayed both son and spouse!

Airplanes roar over the discolored roof
of this huge and abandoned house;
the yellow-chested parrot repeats
his funny and banal jokes,
unable to make me smile and laugh,
because inside a sorrowful heart
there's no place for joy and growth!

Mother, the heavy snow is covering the roof-tops,
and the firs and pines welcome it with zest;
but I feel the coldness and can't rest...
until I see the gladness back in those eyes!

DRAMA

I stare at people and know
exactly what they're thinking;
a mind-reader who needs no gessing!
You act out your drama...
like you're starring in a soap opera,
but attention and applause
are the things you crave:
a red carpet for your dreams to glow!

I can never be Leonardo di Caprio,
not as young,handsome and kind;
I am an Aquarius, you are a Leo:
two different  signs, two contradicting minds;
And I should consider myself a conqueror...
to kiss you on the main deck of the Titanic:
glancing at the midnight's stars above,
feeling the strong wind in our waving hair
as we lose ourselves in deep love... 
that seemed so distant and platonic!     

I am nothing out the ordinary,
a simple guy looking for the perfect girl...
living on delusion, feeding on fantasy,
trying too hard to bend your iron will;
let's stay friends,forget what could have been!
Look at the bright side:  life still moves on,
so don't waste anymore of your time;
going down the road you'll see a sign
that tells you not to be in that drama,
forgetting about being as big as Madonna!

Arise, My Love

Arise, my love, and come away with me
The season for singing has come
The winter has passed and the rain's moved along
My darling, my beautiful one
See, the tender figs spiced upon the tree
The vines are fragrant with blossoms
The flowers appear, the dove voices its song
Arise now, my beautiful one  (Chorus)

In the darkness of the sky
Your face is the fairest moon
Majestic as stars in flight
For my coming to you is soon

And you'll shine as the dawn of day
As clear as the sun above
And your beauty I will parade
Like the hosts with their banners of love

For you are my perfect one
How pleasing you are in my eyes
There is no flaw in you
I say unto you, my bride, Arise

(Chorus)

And the foxes, catch for us
Little foxes that spoil the vine
Its tender grapes are for our cups
But our love is better than wine

It burns like a mighty flame
Its jealousy will not yield
And rivers can't wash love away
For upon my heart you have been sealed

Undefiled, unique and choice
You overwhelm me with your eyes
You have stolen my heart
I say unto you, my bride, Arise

(Bridge)
For there are delicacies at our door
Old and new unseen to your eyes
Now from the secret place of the stairs
I say unto you, my bride, Arise

(Chorus)

Madeline

She came to me by air
Milky white skin, long blonde hair
She promises me I will never be lonely again
I have her to love, I have a best friend
We shall never argue over petty things
With her there, the house will always be clean
Then one day Dana shows up at my front steps
Petite young lady, green eyes and a brunette
I realize by the end of the day
Madeline would just be in the way
That evening, I show Madeline to the door
I tell her I don't love her anymore
The next morning I realize what I have done
When I chose Dana over Madeline, I chose the wrong one
I leave Dana at the house to go find Madeline
While searching for her, I tell myself, this can't be the end
After days of searching, I find her in a second hand store
I approach to convince her, she's the one I adore
The looks I get as I give her a hug and a kiss
As I tell of my favorite things and she is at the top of the list
So we leave together to go back home
A bottle of wine, steak and disconnect the phone
Today I have to send both lovelies back to prostatic friends and lovers 
incorporated
Dana will not return to me, to get a refund for her has made me frustrated
However, Madeline will be refurbished and returned to me like new
My Madeline, blonde hair and eyes of crystal blue

IRRESISTIBLE CHARMER

Irresistible charmer,
keep up your wit and humor;
the unchangeble smiles of
kindness and friendship
attract me unawarely,
but so tenderly...

While you started a desire,
so full and uncontrollable,
no,irresistible charmer...
don't step back and tremble;
I don't delude or abuse anyone,
take everything from them and run!

Irresistible charmer,
in the mist of confusion
and unfelt delusion...
you bring a renovation;
oh,it's a consolation
to feel loved with care!

Irresistible charmer,
stop running wildly;
you complicate things 
with your silence,  
fear nothing from this admirer!
Irresistible charmer,
stop doubting me;
I've shown you more
affection than love,
and the least you can do is dare!

I MAY NEVER KNOW YOUR SWEET KISSES

I may never know your sweet kisses...
but that inviting,warm look
might  make me yours;
oh,I dream of it a lot!

The many useless heartbreaks 
are a continuation of tender delusions
I keep inside for some kind of hope;
you are adored by thousands of men,
and I am not one of the chosen...
still feeling like someone who's lost his grip! 

I may never know your sweet kisses,
and 'though we are this close...
no night has us completely alone,
no morning greets us with the dazzling sun;
I patiently wait,consuming my desire...
'till it's too weak for me to be the charmer!

If my delusion keeps me from reality, 
I'll take it  out it of these unpleasant dreams...
to feel rejection as another word of sympathy;
I could be as unresisting as you,and care less 
and have many women sorround me, too...
but will it be different and still feel so true?

I may never know your sweet kisses,
the ones you waste on others;
perhaps you were never meant to be mine,
because I have given in too easily
and trusted in you so surely!
I may never know your sweet kisses...
don't ever imagine I'll be alone!

STRONG BELIEVERS

Jesus calls to mission
strong believers...
to spread His teachings 
to each Nation;
Jesus sends them
to preach His Gospel
and their deeds can tell;
and like Him they do no harm!

All strong believers
walk under His guidance
and light brightens their way;
they can hear Him say,
"Go to the very ends
of the earth,and let
my name be known, for relief,
to all struggling for justice...
to all in need of consolation;
I am that shining,undying light...
and I give eternal life,
because I am salvation!"

Jesus blesses strong believers...
everytime they show others:
they are true followers in troubled times;
and He tells them,
"Blessed be my Father's name...
glorify the Creator
of this Universe;
trust in Him,fear Him and He won't
forget your needs...
ask Him and He will satisfy your hunger!"

Jesus needs more strong believers
to prepare a kingdom where all can live
together to time indefinite..
a kingdom in which death is unknown like tears;
and strong believers can't let the unbelievers
change their precious Paradise,
because they will lose all they have!
Strong believers,raise your voices...
and like the angelic songs of victory...
Armageddon is the final battle in Mankind's destiny!

Every Nuance of You
Makes me Want you more.

It is as if 
WE cotnrol the Unknown
Control the future

MARY GAVE US A REDEEMER

SERENA

Serena, turn on your charms;
Serena,tackle my imagination
with that sexy,hip look
to sap my judgement...
'till I'll cry in desperation,
'till I'll burn with the fire of passion!

Your gorgeous body,so feminine,
is a body of true perfection
that needs a touch of man's magic
to make it more complete!

Serena,don't look down on me with disbelief;
I'm the guy you're looking for,
and are these the hands you'd rather
trust,hold,touch and squeeze...
when nobody can satisfy your need,
but will you comply and please?

Will you fall in love unconditionally 
or hold on greedy ways?
Will you doubt my loyalty?
If you aren't sure to break loose
from your undeniable pretentiousness,
then have the freedom to choose!

THREE KIDS AND A MOTHER

Three kids and a mother
are reunited after 
years of separation,
and who couldn't imagine
the incredible joy
they'll give one another:
to feel the tenderness
they had missed desperately;
and who wouldn't agree
that they deserve recognition?

Three kids and a mother
hugging,kissing and crying out of joy...
a joy that was denied by society;
how could anyone understand
their sacrifice and long-suffering,
if undying love had not been there?

My thanks go to the merciful Lord
who heard the supplication
in my desperate voice;
my sad eyes,once so teary,
are joyful and thankful
to Him who's truthful to His word...
a might word that makes liars tremble;
If evil and untruth were allowed
to harm and cause destruction,
where would justice stand today?
