The Garden of Adonis Lyrics

If I kissed you in the morning
would you stay,
or like the mist here in the garden
would you slowly fade away,
and if the sunlight warmed your lonely brow
and made you smile, 
would you be here by my side
and walk with me a while.

There's a blushing glow of roses,
A rouge upon your cheeks,
A hint of mellow sadness in your eyes
And a heart that wants to trust 
In your smile.

I wish I knew
the secret to your love
I wish I knew
I wish I knew

Will you wander here with me
and let's just share the day.
Who knows, perhaps we'll find our way.

If I kissed you in the morning
would you stay,
or like the mist here in the garden
would you slowly fade away.

Blame Game

You’re so devoted to all your grudges,
You cherish them like they're a prize;
You hold them with pride on your pedestal
Bursting with bliss as your relationships die. 

Next time you frame everyone's mistakes 
And hang them right above their head, 
You should hang up a mirror as well
And take a good look at yourself instead.

You love to play the blame game
So let's play another round-
What's wrong- are you too ashamed
To turn your finger around?

You're so foolish to expect anybody 
To respect a narcissistic point of view;
Within your childish perception the lens
Is solely focused on you, you, you, and you.

Next time you frame everyone’s mistakes 
And hang them right above their head, 
You should hang up a mirror as well
And take a good, long look at yourself instead.

You love to play the blame game
So let's play another round-
What's wrong- are you too ashamed 
To turn your finger around?

Yeah, you love to play the blame game
So let's play another round-
What's wrong- are you too ashamed
To turn your finger around?

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…….

The First Kiss or That Darn Ann Landers

Son of a gun we were still young;
only 15 years gone by.
You were the first my kissing bubble to burst, 
and for you, I think so was I.
I wanted to start putting other parts 
of our bodies in the field of play;
But you stopped it instead as you paused and read 
what Ann Landers had written to say:

Keep your petting on the outside, keep your tongues inside your mouth,
Keep your hands north of the border, don’t let them travel south.
There’s no use in trying to rush things and ruin the rest of your life,
So just hold his hands and hug him until you’re man and wife.

You stuck to your creed in spite of my plea, 
and I didn’t want to press you;
So your hand I would hold and my tongue I would fold, 
even though I want to undress you.
Late at night my conscience I’d fight, 
still awake in my lonely bed;
Thinking of you and what I would do 
if these words weren’t still stuck in my head:

Keep your petting on the outside, keep your tongues inside your mouth,
Keep your hands north of the border, don’t let them travel south.
There’s no use in trying to rush things and ruin the rest of your life,
So just hold his hands and hug him until you’re man and wife.

I followed your rules, played it cool
for the first ten to twenty dates;
But by the end of the year to me it was clear 
we wouldn’t be tempting our fate.
So we parted our ways; ending our days 
to see other people instead;
As I set forth looking of course 
for a girl who hadn’t read:

Keep your petting on the outside, keep your tongues inside your mouth,
Keep your hands north of the border, don’t let them travel south.
There’s no use in trying to rush things and ruin the rest of your life,
So just hold his hands and hug him until you’re man and wife.

More than thirty years have disappeared; 
For me two wives and four kids.
And as for you, I hear it’s true, 
that getting married you never did.
I’ll never forget and never regret
That first kiss where we both did live;
And though I did slander poor ole Ms. Landers 
to my daughter this advice I now give.

Keep your petting on the outside, keep your tongues inside your mouth,
Keep your hands north of the border, don’t let them travel south.
There’s no use in trying to rush things and ruin the rest of your life,
So just hold his hands and hug him until you’re man and wife.

Casarah's Soup Party

I went to a garden party, where all the soupers came 
They didn't recognize me from my avatar, only from my name. 
And those who have only pictures of flowers or of bugs 
We sure did enjoy giving them a lot of kisses and hugs. 

Cause we all write now, we verse our stanzas well
We can't write for everyone, but we get to write ourselves

Soupers came for many miles, all the poets were there
Peter brought Vera, there was some magic in the air
And over in the garden, to the toad's surprise
Jan stood in Stan's shoes hiding in his disguise

Cause we all write now, we verse our stanzas well
We can't write for everyone, but we get to write ourselves

Lott-in-dah-dah-dah, lot-in-dah-dah-dah.

The music was lyrics the poets have all posted 
And wine and champagne were drunk when we toasted 
Said hello to Arthur, for he is one of the three
When he told his dirty limericks, it was time to leave

Cause we all write now, we verse our stanzas well
We can't write for everyone, but we get to write ourselves

Lot-dah-dah-dah (lot-dah-dah-dah) lot-in-dah-dah-dah.

Someone opened the bedroom door and found the Poet D.
Writing verse and greeting new poets, being nice as can be
If you go to Casarah's  party be ready to stay up all night
We will dance and write, with all our might, for poetry is our right

Cause we all write now, we verse our stanzas well
We can't write for everyone, but we get to write ourselves

Lot-dah-dah-dah (lot-dah-dah-dah) lot-in-dah-dah-dah.

Cause we all write now, we verse our stanzas well
We can't write for everyone, but we get to write ourselves

Asylum Bound

I'm not really sure how to explain 
This strange feeling with my feeble brain-
It's driving me a new kind of insane.

If I believed in love, then in love I would be. 
This bitter, cold heart is set ablaze inside me 
Just hearing your name- I melt at the sound. 
Without you my dear, I'd be asylum bound. 

I'm not really sure how to explain
This madness taking over my brain-
It's driving me a new kind of insane. 

Well, I'm not quite sure I can complain 
About the thoughts of you that consume my brain- 
They're driving me a good kind of insane. 

If I believed in love, then in love I would be. 
This bitter, cold heart is set ablaze inside me
Just hearing your name- I melt at the sound.  
Without you my dear, I'd be asylum bound.

If I believed in love, then in love we would be. 
You set this bitter, cold heart ablaze inside me. 
I only feel sane when you come around- 
Without you my dear, I'll be asylum bound. 

No, I'm not quite sure how to explain
This strange new feeling with my feeble brain-
But my dear, you drive me perfectly insane.

Scars

(Yes- these song lyrics are mega cliché, but- I wrote them for someone dear to my heart; therefore, they are Soup worthy). 

Oh, you’re doing everything you can
When you’re trying to become a better man- 
But these demons keep on holding you back.

Yeah, you’re doing everything you can
When nothing goes quite as you plan-
But I know you’ll get back on the right track. 

When it all seems too far gone,
And you feel like you can’t keep going on-
Just remember this my friend:
The hardships only make us stronger in the end. 

The past doesn’t define who we are,
Even if it leaves us with these scars.
No, the past can’t define who we are,
It can only leave us with some scars.

Oh, you’re doing everything you can
To attain something so much bigger than
The life that you’ve been given. 

Yeah, you’re doing everything you can
When nothing goes quite as you plan- 
But I know you’ll never give in

When it all seems too far gone,
And you feel like you can’t keep going on-
‘Cause you’ll remember this my friend:
These hardships only make you stronger in the end. 

The past doesn’t define who we are,
Even if it leaves us with these scars.
No, the past can’t define who we are,
It can only leave us with some scars.

Though a broken road has your feet glued to the ground,
And it seems all hope is nowhere to be found-
Just remember this my friend:
All these broken things can mend…

‘Cause the past doesn’t define who we are,
Even if it leaves us with these scars. 
No, the past can’t define who we are,
It can only leave us with some scars.

Jesus Christ Is Coming Back Down

To the tune of "Santa Clause Is Coming To Town"

You better look up,
prepare for His sight.
The Lord will come back
some day or some night.
Jesus Christ Is Coming Back Down.

He's making a list.
He's paid the great price.
Who's going in route
to His paradise?
Jesus Christ Is Coming Back Down.

He sees you when you're breathing.
He knows you need His grace.
He knows that we have all been bad,
but He died to take our place.

With bright Seraphim and bright Cherubim,
Trumpy trumpets, and drummy drum drums,
Jesus Christ Is Coming Back Down.

He sees you when you're weeping.
He offers His embrace.
He knows you like nobody else,
yet He loves you anyway.

You better not doubt.
You wanna know why?
Your life could end soon.
There's no second try.
Jesus Christ Is Coming Back Down
Jesus Christ Is Coming Back Down
Jesus Christ Is Coming Back Down

Promised Land

She told it this way.....

He said...San Francisco......
Then up to Mendocino
I said...can I go
He said...I guess you can

'Cause, long since Albuquerque
That's when he first hurt me
My heart's dying to divert me
To the promised land

And...oh, the nights are long
When you're playing tag along
And this old heartache..hanging on
Is getting out of hand

'Wish he would turn this car around
California...feels like shaky ground, 
Why is it always one more town
To the promised land

Silence speaks behind the wheel
A change of plans....to Bakersfield
Where Merle Haggard got the feel
Of the lonesome legend man

"Can't say I'm having fun
In this California sun
But,I'm praying for another run
To the promised land

And...oh, the days are cold
When empty's all you've got to hold
And chase love down another road
'So hard to understand

This oak just ain't gonna bend
Maybe, as the story ends
I'll catch the next poet's pen
To the promised land

Life's Love Story

Written for the contest
MORE SONG LYRICS

Have you ever seen, the sun setting down
Upon this red roofed town
And hear the sound of love begin
I have never found a more perfect place
Than, when I see your face
I simply fall in love again

Don't ask me which way the wind will blow
Or the tide will flow
Or even where, our love will go
I just know there could never be a place 
Where I can’t feel your warm embrace
With those lips I love to taste

Have you seen the mountains rising from the sea
That’s where I want to be 
With you eternally, in grace
We hear our tune, carried along the wind
Strummed on life’s violin
As a tear rolls down your face

Don’t ask me why the good times seem to fly
Or why some passion dies,
Or how lovers, can say Goodbye
All I know is when I leave this tropic heat
I am filled with the Latin beat
Until the next time on this street,  we meet

the day you flew to Heaven


           We knew , it was if a moment stopped in time 
              hearing the news before most of the World did
           He loved to fly his plane from Colorado to Monterey Bay
           He was a avid golfer at Pebble Beach respected 

           He had loves and passions from many places 
           deciding to fly low through the overcast red sunset
            Not only did he love music and inspire all 
            He loved his Plane , he will always remain a beautiful Soul

              The next day it was confirmed ..all saddened 
             It was John Denver's plane that went down
             Today in Pacific Grove stands the Memorial 
             So Kiss me and smile for me we will ~
              always in loving memory 
               OH babe ,  do we hate you go ~

Dying Eyes

I have lost the will to change
Taking the path that leads to nowhere
The darkness is taking over
something i cannot repair 
If it is to be broken
Drowning in the sorrow
I cannot give in
Take the fall and run to the heavens
Im never going to bow
Im never going to break
I will not fall
I will not fade
I was made to take your breathe away
Whenever my hope is lost
Thats my chance to run for cover
Light the fuse and burn it up
I dont want to change the world
I just want to make it colder
Watching the end
With our dying eyes
Tell me where forever lies

I've Scribbled This Song For You



I've Scribbled This Song For You...


I'm wasting my days,
my empty nights too,

I should have held on,
but I simply lost you,

now I stagger along,

wearing broken smiles,
in between hell and you,
there's a million miles,

yes, I should have kept,
you close to my skin,

soaking your warmth,
but you were laughing,

at my foolish grin...


now I'm all broken,
and torn apart,

but what the hell,
I was always late,
for the tolling of the bell,

and now...

now I stagger along,

wearing broken smiles,
in between hell and you,
there's a million miles,

so kiss me now like you once did,
I'm tired of being so carefully hid,


la laa laa la laa laa laa...


(repeat to fade)

Precious One

I'm going to sing a lullaby
 ~For you my precious one~
 May these words erase all your fears
 ~As night time has now come~
 
 
 These words are sang with starlit skies
 ~To you my precious one~
 So please now close your eyes
 ~Until a new day has begun~
 
 
 Dream of chasing butterflies
 ~My sweet and precious one~
 May you wake to clear bright skies
 ~With many happy days of fun~
 
 
 I sing to you this lullaby
 ~My loving precious one~
 I will always be near to dry each tear
 ~If they ever should happen to come~
 
 
 May I always wake to your beautiful smile
 ~My dear sweet precious one~
 My love for you will reach endless miles
 ~As your lifetime journeys have begun~

The Love Song

You are the yearn of my days 
Like the new air of my breath
Sunshine greets through my morning
As if I was slept under the bliss

And if I had to leave from my certain place
To be the other side where there is you
I will catch every second of time
Just only to stay whole with you

I would say and sing it to the blue sky
How's love flood through our kiss
It made our world swirl and fly by
Like a miracle of pendulum swing

Days kept changing, unfolding
But still I'm insist to be here
Moon rose like too early
Seemed it stayed to be apathetic

And if I had to leave from my certain place
To be the other side where there is you
I will catch every second of time
Just only to stay whole with you

I would say and sing it to the blue sky
How's love filled and made me full with you
Immeasurable even by time
For all I want is you

And won't I take all those back again
Though I'm suffered in pain
Promised to be by your side
For I know and I can see 
The same lonesome in you and me 

*inspired by Anne Currin contest "Song Lyric"

Note: This is actually my old song lyric. I made a big modification and few changes of words in it regarding to the differences of language, but hopefully it still worth to be read :) enjoy!

NEVER FELT SO RIGHT

You can be my girl, come on
I can be your guy, that's right
Let's get back together, oh yeah 
Why don't we try it tonight

It's not good to be apart 
Let me see it in your eyes
Don't look away, okay
Please don't ever disguise
Cause in those pretty eyes
Your soul's totally exposed
I can see your heart, oh my
My want for you just grows

Here's my hand right now
I can be your man, oh wow
You can be my song, my tune
I'm your biggest fan, I swoon 
Magic's in the air, stardust
Girl we got to start, gotta trust
It's not even fair, don't fly
I can see your heart, oh my

When you're holding my hand
My world is spinning a round
I'm inside out, I'm upside down
Girl you give me vertigo.. Vertigo
Crazy love never felt so right
Gonna hold you day and night
Oh, here comes the white flag
I surrender
I surrender
I surrender.. without a fight
Crazy love never felt so right

You can be my girl, come on
I can be your guy, that's right
Let's get back together, oh yeah 
Why don't we try it tonight

I surrender.. without a fight
Crazy love never felt so right
Let's get back together, oh yeah 
Why don't we try it tonight
Crazy love never felt so right

Odin's Army

I fell in battle, sword in hand, 
Invading someone else’s land.
Then I saw her, and she reached down, 
To escort me from the battleground.
I’d let her take me anywhere, 
With her winged helmet and braided hair.

She had me stand ‘neath Odin’s throne, 
Where each warrior must stand alone.
One-eyed Odin judged me to be 
Worthy to serve in his last army….
Daily killed and resurrected--
(Not quite the afterlife expected!)

Samurais taught me to sword-fight.	 
I learned spear and shield from a Hoplite.	
Vikings taught me the battle axe, 
And the Persians taught me sneak attacks.
We die each day and then come back, 
Always practicing for Ragnorak.

She brings me mead, my Valkyrie, 
And sometimes at night she favors me.
Since she’s nearby, it’s just as well--
This isn’t Heaven, but not quite Hell.
We’ll fight and sing to the war drums, 
Waiting the day that Ragnorak comes.


(Chorus)
Our days are spent in miseries, 
But at night we have the Valkyries.
Riposte and lunge, thrust and parry; 
That’s all we do in Odin’s army.

A Dick With A Glove

Very loosely based on Robert Palmer’s song Addicted To Love – I understand the lyric is often mis-quoted hence the title.

The lights are on, were both at home
Your todger has a mind of its own
Our hearts beat, our bodies quake
Making love is what it takes
We start to moan, we start to grind
Sex is always on your mind
There’s no doubt your in deep 
With all this sex we never sleep
Another kiss is all you need
Ooh ohhh

You always wear your rubber glove – oh yeah 
Cos we’re not ready to have a baby to love
Guess it’s always safer to stick your dick in a glove

You see the signs when we do the deed
But still you ride me like steed
You're going at it double time 
Honey you've got a one-track mind  

There's no hope you can't be saved
Sexual oblivion is all you crave
Nymphomania is nothing new 
But honey it sure thrives in you

Whoa I'm not immune to your stuff oh yeah
Lets face it baby I can't get enough 
I might as well face it I'm addicted to your love.

Risk Taker

Spent a little time in a world so right 
Thousands of words filled my night 
Met a little filly, I would call my own 
Casting my fears into the great unknown 

I heard her unique beat, saw her dance 
We started our own poetic romance 
Two hearts, one voice, singing in unison 
Sipping the same soup, we dived right in 

She's a mover, a shaker. 
A real risk taker 
A diamond, an ace, 
She rocks this place 

Wonders never cease, she's the one 
Many duets are sure to come 
No drama, no games, she's insane 
Her rap is better than Lil Wayne 

She'll cuss like a sailor, rhyme like Seuss 
She'll give you love and take your abuse 
I found an angel, she found a friend 
This connection is without an end 

She's a mover, a shaker. 
A real risk taker 
A diamond, an ace, 
She rocks this place 

A hundred voices, a thousand choices 
The bowl of soup fills, with all styles and skills. 
Two peas in a pod, too alike to be odd 
Sharing this with you, our soup is not stew

An Ordinary Man

I want to be inspired to write
    a song people really want to sing;
I want to be inspired to compose
    a requiem for the King;
But, I’m just an ordinary man
    doing the best I can
        at writing poems
            that have no homes.

I want to be inspired to find
    a cure for this cancer thing;
I want to be inspired to reach
    out for the golden ring;
But, I’m just an ordinary man
    doing the best I can
        at getting by
            with the good old college try.

I want to be inspired to lead
    a revolutionary coup;
I want to be inspired to be
    the best at everything I do;
But, I’m just an ordinary man
    doing the best I can
        to make ends meet
            and not live on the street.

I have the motivation;
I’ll put in the perspiration;
I can give it concentration;
But, I lack the inspiration;

Inspire me.
What will it take to inspire me?

I want to be inspired to write
    a song people really want to sing;
I want to be inspired to compose
    a requiem for the King;
But, I’m just an ordinary man
    doing the best I can
        at writing poems
            that have no homes.

Sweet Sparrow

A song of a sparrow in the springtime.




Birds chirp a lullaby at the peak of the morning sun.
Speedy is the dragonfly, wish I could catch just one.
Clovers fill the meadow and daisies are in bloom.
Brilliant as the rainbow heanen's scent perfumes.
I hear a sparrow singing sweet tunes of joy and glee.
Sing a song sweet sparrow, sing a song for me.

As springtime goldenrods glow.
I see a sweet sparrow perched upon a rose.
Elegant are the carnations,
and honeybees buzz me by,
God's mighty creations of tender springtime.
I hear a sparrow singing a joyful melody.
Sing a song sweet sparrow, whistle in the breeze.

Lilacs spread their fragrance.
Daffodils line the creek.
In the wind the lilies dance,
and crickets chirp at my feet.
I hear a sparrow singing such a sweet tune.
Sing a song sweet sparrow, lift the morning dew.

Sing a song the prince of love and let the music flow.
Drowning in sweet melodies I open my window.
Perched upon the cedar tree a mighty little bird.
Singing tunes of springtime for all to be heard.

Something You Left Behind

I found something of yours you left behind:
Something I did not expect to find.
The sudden surge of memories
Shocked me so hard I couldn't breathe—
It almost knocked me to my knees.
My whole world came undone. 

I found something of yours you left behind:
Something that you wore when you were mine.
You wore it with your wedding gown,
Like a tiara or a crown.
It turned my world all upside down.
You always were “the one”.

I found something of yours you left behind:
Something that my love for you enshrined.
I found it hidden from the light,
That thing you used to wear at night.
That came down when I held you tight,
Back when we were one.

I found something of yours you left behind,
Something that I never wished to find—
'Cause there's no going back, you see,
To times when you were here with me.
You left a painful void in me;
But still life must go on.

I think of what you left behind
And then it came to me:
The saddest thing you left behind
Turned out to be me.

(Chorus )
I thought I'd gotten over you;
But I was wrong, you see.
You don't get over love that's true,
Nor what was meant to be.

Where Do I Put My Tears

I put away your picture in a trunk beneath the stairs. I couldn't keep it near me since you no longer care. It holds so many memories of things we shared for years. Yes, I put away your picture, but where do I put my tears? I put away the letters I've held on to so long. I put away the records of all our special songs. I've given up the pleasure of having you so near. I found a place for everything, but where do I put my tears? -- Chorus -- Where do I put these tears that live on a faded love? How can I forget the things that I am fondest of? Where can I put a lifetime of memories so dear? But, most of all, please tell me where do I put my tears? I stored away some heartaches that came each now and then. I put them with the broken dreams of things that should have been. I let you take the comfort that used to calm my fears. I wish someone could tell me just where do I put my tears? -- repeat chorus -- Where do I put these tears that live on a faded love? How can I forget the things that I am fondest of? Where can I put a lifetime of memories so dear? But, most of all, please tell me where do I put my tears?

Is She the One?

Is she the one?
I’m left wondering, if she’s the one.
Has a new love song just begun?
We’re having fun,
Is she the one?

But what am I to her?
Could she possibly concur?
For love to occur
I must be right for her;
Does she, me prefer?

Are we meant to be?
Or, is it a fantasy?
Has love struck only me?
Or, possibly,
Set us free?

If she is the one,
Our lives have just begun.
All others I will shun;
She’ll be the only one.
I’ll not have this love undone.

How do I find this out?
Should I, my feelings shout?
Even though I have a doubt
Whether or not she’s figured out
If I am the one she can’t be without.

I must stop wondering,
About what the future brings,
So I don’t ruin things,
Worrying,
Tugging strings.

If she is the one,
Tomorrow yet will come,
Our love will be hanging on
The feeling won’t be gone,
If for each other we are the one.

And I will know,
And she will know,
And our love will grow
As we get old
And our story is told.

I hope she is the one;
Please let her be the one;
My morning sun,
My journey done,
My love song sung.

If I Could See You Now

If I could see you now
Your eyes lit up like daytime candles
Shining in my Knoxwood night.
If I could hear you now
Spilling laughter  like silver bangles
Flooding my world with light.
If I could hold you now
And feel the pillow of your breast
Inviting my heart to stay
O, but I in sorrow now
Am so sorry and must confess
I am only mortal clay
And when this music plays again
Memories move me to pain
For you are gone and hope is vain
This song is just a chain.

I had no wish to wander,
Love, so long in the wind, drowning
In my tears, looking back
To days that never come again
And if you are still tender
With forgiving, when you are remembering
Blame fate that switched track
But could not break the chain.



Tom Jans wrote "Lying in your loving arms again." The only persons I have ever heard sing 
this song is Elvis Presley and Kris Kristoferson ...

A Simply Fallen Angel

A simply fallen angel. 
Who ventured to far from home. 
She's been captured, bound, and stolen now.
Encased in precious stones.

She wept, slept and kept herself.
Away from worldly wrongs.
In a place of simple loneliness. 
A place of simple song. 

And Our simply fallen angel. 
Who just won't believe. 
I'm a lost ghostwell gathering. 
Or treasure tossed out to sea.
Fallen to a pirate band. 
Then recorded to CD. 
As a simple song of simple hopes. 
Of shining stars thought telescopes.
As hidden light behind the notes.
The music hides from man. 

But as light flies from gem to gem.
You'll hear her holy singing voice. 
And see her holy sin. 

But she has found beauty in this life yet.
As she heard a song and could not forget.
That man she met on Sixth Avenue. 
Who forgot the world and sung the truth.

And on the spawning dawn of judgment day.
You'll hear them in the wind. 
With their simple song of loneliness. 
And their simple song of sin.

Mrs Worldwide

Excuse me baby
Let's go, yeah you baby
You're so groovy baby
Let's dance now, baby
Take my hand baby
Oh maybe, baby
It's only fantasy, baby

Mrs. Worldwide, Agent C, reporting live
From the World Wide Web, we ride

A leap, leap in, leap in time

Baby, ohhh baby
My sweet baby
I'll make you the one

My fantasy equals, forest moss, ancient oak
A little dance and here we go
You with your black tie
Our fingers entwined
This our happy heaven
With light shining through
A mover a shaker a real risk taker
A diamond an ace
You rock this place
At the front of my thoughts
Not the back of my mind
I've made this leap in time

Baby, ohhh baby
My sweet baby
I'll make you the one

Our love is international
Your words are inspirational
You got the world in your palm
Grab my hand and your problems will be solved
Come let your love rain over me
Rain it all over me
Don't dwell about the past
Our love will surely last
So take a picture of the future
But let's do it tonight
Give me everything tonight
For we might not get tomorrow

Baby, oooh baby
My sweet baby
I'll make you the one

Reach for the stars
I'll make you feel right
Come home with me tonight

It's only fantasy baby
Come on baby
Tonight baby
Maybe baby
Me and you baby
Our futures together baby
Yeah you baby
You're groovy baby
Take a leap in time
Making memories baby

Baby, ohhh baby
Ohhh baby, my sweet baby
You're the one

And the Earthquake Shook

I was walking along,
    And I was singing this song,
        That has been playing inside my head.
If you’re as old as I,	
    You know “American Pie”,
        About the singer that has long been dead.

And so it seems,
    I was lost in my dreams,
        When this beauty came up to me.
She said, “Hey Mister,
    I know your sister,
        And I heard about your history.”

That was all it took;
Just a single look;
Put it in the books;
In my heart, her hook …
And the earthquake shook.

Although I tried,
    My tongue was tied,
        The words were stuck inside my throat.
I crashed my Chevy,
    Into the levy,
        If from that song I can steal a quote.

I just stared at her,
    Everything else a blur,
        I knew my world right then had changed.
I pressed forward fast,
    Erasing all my past,
        As if our love had been arranged.

That was all it took;
Just a single look;
Put it in the books;
In my heart, her hook …
And the earthquake shook.

We will keep my history,
    In this song a mystery,
        But it brought to me this girl.
Just know my soul was saved,
    By the path she paved,
        As I welcomed her in my world.

Now when “American Pie” I hear,
    It puts in my eye a tear,
        Remembering that fateful day.
When my angel came,
    While on the third refrain,
        And my loneliness passed away.

That was all it took;
Just a single look;
Put it in the books;
In my heart, her hook …
And the earthquake shook.

Unite Blue

Verse 1

I’ve had this dream now for a while,
But the real world’s where I choose to stay,
The time is now for standing up,
To reach out for that brighter day.

Chorus

Unite to lend a hand to those who are in need,
Unite against them, whose souls are consumed by greed,
Unite and lend a hand, and we can change the world,
We’re the ones we’ve been waiting for.

Verse 2

Walking past two souls holding hands,
I see that it’s true love conquers all,
A dreamland where we all sing and dance,
And hands to catch us should we fall.

(Chorus)

Bridge

United, it’s in our hands,
United, it’s how we stand,
United, across all lands.
Empathy, we understand,
Together, it’s how we stand,
Unite with one voice, One Hand.

Special

To capture the attention everyone else gets but you
You do whatever you can to get it
Even if its bad
You continue to do it
To get the attention you never had
And the attention you will never get
You want the perfect body and soul that everyone else has
You want to feel important... special
So you seek for a better
Much higher thing
What you need
You dont quite know
But you decide that
You will do whatever it takes to make you happy
And sometimes
That means..
suicide
Sometimes it means
Shooting someone
Because the hole inside your heart needs filled
And thats the only thing you ever had
The only thing you see
The only thing that someone gave to you
The thing that got everyone talking about you
The thing that got everyone to even look at you
So if you decide to kill someone
You kill yourself afterwards
Because you felt lonely again
You felt that no one was watching you
That no one even cared 
Then you think about all the things that 
Bugged you
And you pull the trigger
Then theres no more you
Next time someone sees you
You will be on the news
Where now you are special
And important

Music

Music calms the angry heart, its glorious rhythm penetrates the dark, the way I feel when the sound waves seep through my hair, consumes my soul with a suttle stare, my feet so happy, my body enriched with vibrations, my soul so at ease, I'm here for the taking.
 

I play from my experience, I put on a show, my hidden words entangled with the things that I know, smiles surround me, they glance by my feet, their inner beings amazed by my beat.
 

I beat my drums, I play my strings, they show me their affection, this is where I get my wings, they say I can fly, it seems I can soar, my music so perfect, they keep asking for more.
 

I do what I love, and they love what I do, music is my life, I am so happy that I can share it with you.

Summer Time

Summer Time
and in the spring
the children sprout
growing up until they old
reminiscing on the past
(Summer Time)...
 So innocent and young
growing old and wise
telling true stories
to the children eyes
some young become old fools
just make sure its not you
Summer Time
and in the spring
the children sprout
growing up until they old
reminiscing on the past

Brush Away The Tear

Do I see a tear there in your eye -- Reflecting broken dreams from days gone by? Was it caused by something I have done? Or do you feel you’re not my only one? Can I help you drive away the pain And let you know how you’ve not loved in vain? Let me change your heartache to a sigh And brush away the tear there in your eye. Do I see a frown there on your face – Reflecting pain that time cannot erase? Is your love for me now turning cold – Or have the memories grown hard to hold? Come and let me hold you close to me. Don’t let our love be just a memory. Let me stay with you for just a while And help you change that frown into a smile. Time is kinder When you’re here with me. The mem’ries blind me so You’re all my heart can see. Come and let me take you by the hand – Please listen and just try to understand – Love like ours will never ever die – So, brush away the tear there in your eye.

Way We Live

Culture is beautiful when expressed in the right light 
It is the drum we walk to, dance to
Everyday down city corner streets
It is the obstacles we walk through, run through
Everyday common as the passing faces we see

It is the temptation we indulge in, survive in
Everyday it rises 
like the sun 
and sets over horizons
It is the songs we hum to, succumb to
Everyday on the mornin' radio
constantly setting the mood 
givin' that vision to our way of life

Beautiful culture yields to beautiful life

TEMPORARY HOME

THIS IS A SONG DONE BY CARRIE UNDERWOOD I WANTED TO SHARE WIT ALL OF YOU.


Little boy,6 years old,a little to use to being alone.
Another new mom and dad,another school,another
house that'll never be home.When people ask him
how he likes this place,he looks up and says with
a smile upon his face,
       (CHORUS)
     
    This is my temporary home,it's not where I belong,
windows and rooms that I'm passing' through.This is
just a stop,on the way to where I'm going,I'm not
afraid because I know,this is my temporary home.

Young mom,on her own,she needs a little help got
nowhere to go.She's lookin for a job lookin for a way
out,because a half way house will never be a home.
At night she whispers to her baby girl,someday we'll
find our place here in this world.

(CHORUS)

Old man,hospital bed,the room is filled with people he 
loves,and he whispers don't cry for me I'll see you all
someday.He looks up and says,"I can see GOD'S face.

      (CHORUS)

THIS IS OUR TEMPORARY HOME.

IT'S YOUR FACE


the tempo of our souls
beats together across time
as images connect 
one world stops, we align.

and rhythm flows from the mouth 
oh soft with passion, complete
when affection pours through miles
i breathe you in, soupy> sweet.

chorus:

in night’s melody, words  bring 
a language heaving, i reply 
till  the starlight of a hum
enters in a moment, to fly
as voices ring through deep tones
to fly, climb right inside of me;
feeling you in warm silence
except, your face i want to see…
……..

then, a presence fills the room
reflecting one more thought, so fine
just as two, three whispers end
one world stops, and we align.

if missing you is part of this realm
then let all seasons find a way,
to bring the hours bright as fire
like a glow of morning’s replay.

chorus:

in night’s melody, words  bring 
a language heaving, i reply 
till  the starlight of a hum
enters in a moment, to fly
as voices ring through deep tones
to fly, climb right inside of me;
feeling you in warm silence
except, your face i want to see.

We Welcome the Sun

We welcome the sun
We welcome the sun 

A gleaming sunrise is seen in the distance – shedding relief 
Bursting forth like fireworks in the dark blue sky 
Hues of beauty and sincerity washes away our grief
The cheery clouds come together like lovers embracing one another

I’m never waving goodbye
   
It’s so surreal… and magnificent to see this scene unfold
You lift up the sparkling light… you’re an angel from up above
It’s so vibrant – the illuminated sight never dulled 
You bring us luck and excitement – 

You’re as pleasant as a dove 

We welcome the sun
We welcome the love
We welcome the sun
We welcome the sun 
To omit the darkness 
To abolish the distress
To conceal the darkness
And reveal the halo
Hovering around your head
Burning away the dread 
We welcome the sun
We welcome the sun 
We welcome the sun

An ocean of love is rubbing against my feet
Blankets of comfort embrace me now… our love will never dry
You treat us with reverence and I repeat – 
You’re as pleasant as a dove – taking wing from on high 
We welcome the sun in the morning 
We welcome the sun with open arms
We welcome the sun 
We welcome the sun
We welcome the sun 
We welcome the sun 

A speedy breeze is whistling in my ears
Spiraling mad like a spinning top
Spiraling mad with all of its might 
You’re very intriguing – you casted away our fears 
Your gorgeous eyes
Project bright green and blue
You’re special in His sight 
He welcomes you
We welcome the hope 
We welcome the sun
We welcome the sun
We welcome the sun 
To lighten up your load 
And lead you to the mercy road
Where you and I will escape to paradise
To drive out all of the negativity
To conceal the wretched farewells
To reveal the light in goodbye 

We welcome the sun
We welcome the sun
We welcome you
With open arms

girl with the diamond eyes

my girl
has a strange effect on me

shes more sweet than honey
but be warned this queen bee can sting
she can be bitter at times 


but i dont mind cause
shes all mine 
shes my only dream
and she can be like a angel to me

there are always times when diamonds 
loose their shine but since the day i made her mine
that shine has never left
her beautiful eyes

shes my girl
the girl with the diamond eyes


this girl is more beautiful than anything
she is my perfect vision of life
she means everything to me

shes my angel and my dream
but at times she can be 
the devil to me

we are crazy in desire
we fit together well 
shes crazy 
and im crazy for her

shes bad 
and ill be bad for her

my girl
has a strange effect on me

shes more sweet than honey
but be warned this queen bee can sting
she can be bitter at times 


but i dont mind cause
shes all mine 
shes my only dream
and she can be like a angel to me

there are always times when diamonds 
loose their shine but since the day i made her mine
that shine has never left
her beautiful eyes

shes my girl
the girl with the diamond eyes


yea my girl
with the diamond eyes

she makes me feel crazy
sometimes
but i dont mine as long as i can call
that girl with the diamond eyes mine

i pray they always shine

A Folk Song from India

BACKGROUND DETAILS ARE GIVEN ON MY BLOG POSTED TODAY

A Folk Song from India

O my Sakhi,* bring the Dholak*,      we would sing a song,
O friend, my love is coming,	                 from a far-off city,
While bringing the Dholak,*         bring also the   Mazeera,*
We would sing a song and        we would dance  together.


The Jhoola*  is ready,		       on the branch of  Mango tree,
On the beat of Dholak, 	we would swing high touching the sky,
O my friend, bring the Dholak*,  we would sing a song together,
O Sakhi* my love is coming,	                         from a far-off city,


O my friend push the swing,                            so high in the sky,
I may see my Sasuma*,                  leaving the house for a while,
The swing is ready,			      on the branch of  Mango tree,
On the beat of Dholak,    we would swing high touching the sky,


O my friend please push the swing,                  so high in the sky,
That I may see, my Nanda,*     also leaving the house for a while,
O Sakhi,  please, increase the swinging,            so high in the sky,
That I may see my Dever* also,      leaving the house for a  while.

O my friend increase the swinging,                     so high in the air,
That I may see my Sasur*too, have to leave the house for a while, 
O my dear Sakhi,* please increase the swinging, so high this time,
That I may see the face of my love,        coming after a long while.

O my friend,            please push the swing   in such a way this time,
That my love may come to me,                     searching his dear wife. 
Then Sakhi increase the beat and sound of the Dholak,   so much so,
That everyone may feel that   we are singing the  song in full swing,
When you bring the Dholak,*                      bring also the Mazeera,*
We would sing a song and                        we would dance   together.

A Song Unsung

A song unsung is not a song Until the music plays. And the verse meant to come alive Is just a meaningless phrase. But there is no song without the words That give meaning to it all And to separate the two will bring Nothing you’ll recall But if the two are blended In a very special way Something magic happens That you don’t see every day. You’ll find rhythm in the music, And a rhyme for all the words And if you listen closely Angels can be heard. To put it all together May seem a mighty chore For what you’re really looking for No one’s heard before. The words may come from wisdom Or from deep within your heart And the chord that brings these words to life Requires a very special art Then, when you think it’s finished, And all the work is done Just give it one more edit And then enjoy the fun.

Black and White

You’ve maddened me to the core 
You singed me with your ferocious fire
We’re opposites… we’ll never integrate  
We can’t blend with each other…
Your love and I’m hate 
We’re contrary to each other…

So don’t even think about 
Getting us back together 
Because without a doubt, 
We don’t click with each other…

So let us go our own way…

Everything’s black and white
You love to torture me with your deceptive devices 
We’re playing this chess match – let’s fight!
Tonight, you’re going to pay the prices
You’re going to be deleted from my mind…

I’m not the one that should pay the price
You act as if you’re an angel from heaven
But, you’re a fiend…a devil from hell...who needs your advice?
Could someone unchain me from this prison?

So let us prepare for that day…

Fear and bewilderment build inside of our minds
Taking over us…we’re wasting valuable time
Terror and wrath injects into our veins…time starts to unwind 
I’m regaining my glory…this moment feels so sublime  

You think you’re innocent?
I can sense your guilt…bleeding through you
Do you live to feed me anguish? 
Don’t deny it…you crafty demon…no wonder I feel blue

Let’s get ready for battle…
I’ll watch you decay…
IT’S PAY BACK TIME . . .
Taste my fury and my agony 

Everything’s black and white
You love to torture me with your deceptive devices 
We’re playing this chess match – let’s fight!
Tonight, you’re going to pay the prices
You’re going to be defeated…

I scream before nightfall
I close my eyes to kiss my demise
I want to disappear 
Scratch away my desolation
Wipe away my tears…
Spewing out of my eyes…like a waterfall
Tonight, there will be dismay
There will be suffering 
After sundown…
Failure and glory will expose like stars in the midnight sky
Who will earn the crown? 
No one knows in silent wars – who can reveal the light in goodbye
  
Why are we black and white?
Are you too afraid to know the reason why? 

Everything’s black and white
You love to torture me with your deceptive devices 
We’re playing this chess match – let’s fight!
Tonight, you’re going to pay the prices
You’re going to suffer alone…

Gumshoe

The client was desperate.   
The coppers gave up on the chase.  
They might have caught him, but, 
The killer didn’t leave a trace.

Flipping coins in the shadows.  
Slouch hat, overcoat and a gun.
Photographing through windows   
Some clown’s extra-marital fun.

Who went bust playing horses?  
Just who’s blackmailing who?
Questioning his sources, 
The detective’s looking for clues.

Dusting for fingerprints, 
Magnifying glass in hand.
Searching for evidence, 
Like following tracks in the sand.   

GUMSHOE!

A Song For You


I want to sing, such a Song for you, 
So the sleep may come to you, 
When I sing the song for you
The fairies from heaven would come,
To take you softly in dreams.

You know when the fairies come, 
The buds of your heart would bloom,
Leaving every clouds behind, 
They would take you on their wings 
On the silver surface of the Moon.

If the Moon is not there, 
They would take you to your stars,  
They fairies would tell your stars,  
To shine and more shine,
Till your dreams come true.

I want to sing, such a Song for your, 
So the sleep may come to you, 
When I sing the song for you
The fairies from heaven would come,
To take you softly in dreams.

Do you know when the Moon and stars tells, 
The sleep always comes
To rest in your eyes.
These stars tell everything  
In their own silent way,
While shining far away in the sky.

I am singing a song for you, 
So the sleep may come to you,

You Alone

Look at you, you have found my heart
With love I stare into your eyes
With passion I devise
I can not part with you or can not stop the things I have started

So I raise my hands to embrace you and you alone

Look I walk by your side and I found my self crying
With your hands so soft with gentleness
With your smile so beautiful with carefulness
I do notice life with you without sighing

So I raise my hands to embrace you and you alone

Without a fear of losing you, you are in my visions
With beautiful roses by your side 
I love you more than twelve times
Without doubt I do love you, I care for you and you alone

So do not walk away 
Please lets talk about things anyway
With feelings of letting you go is make me ache in the heart
Do not stop believing my passion has fallen apart

So I raise my hands to embrace you and you alone

Look I want us to grow old with each other through years of journeys
With hope of sharing life of fulfillment that gives us memories
With this I hope to give all of my faith and I hope it is not to late
I Look into your eyes with such full life because you have been my life date

So I raise my hands to embrace you and you alone

And you alone

So I raise my hands to embrace you

you alone

Forever Changed

June 18, 2013 our world was Forever Changed
We where over halfway home
When we got the call from our baby sister

Said we need to get back home
We need to come as fast as we can drive
Mom really needs us
Something’s wrong with Daddy
The whole way we drove 80
Hoping & Praying we’d make it in time

Our Family & Friends were weeping 
By the time we got to his side
We knew our Daddy had been taking
And our hearts they were breaking
We never got to say Goodbye
We each softly kissed that man
We four sisters climbed in his bed 
We laid down beside him 
And cried just like babies
For our world was Forever Changed

Song of a Teenage Girl 2/2

Concluding Part 

PRELUDE
The song expresses the feelings of an Indian village girl. Her parents have fixed her
marriage (It generally happens in the rural areas of India, even to-day). She is about to
leave for the first time for her in-law’s place. She do not want to go to her  father in
law’s place leaving her parents, her soul mates friends the animals and birds.  The song
sketches the tender feelings of her heart for her Mother, Father and Brother & for the
animals and birds, whom she used to look after until now as her most precious friends and
who taught her how to sing a sweet song.  




The Song of a Teenage Girl                2/2



Still if you have decided to send me to my in laws, place, O dear,

This year, O My Dear Father and Mother please, 

Do not forget to send my brother on Rakhi* 

So that I can tie up the Rakhi String* on the wrist of my sweet brother.

You know O Mother, being a newly wedded bride, I won’t speak much in my in laws place.

If I speak, who would bother to understand the feelings of my heart.

Still if you have decided to send me to my in laws, place, 

O Mother, Please don’t forget, what I have told you today,

Only then, your daughter would be happy in her new alien place. 


Ravindra
Kanpur India 17th October 2010  
* Sasural. A Hindi word. Meaning father-in-laws place
*alien place.  The place of in-laws generally remains alien for  rural girls,  as their
marriages are fixed by the parents & in some cases, even the husband remains totally
unknown to the bride. 
* Koyal. The melody singing bird of India. 
* Rakhi.   Rakhi is a festival of siblings of opposite sex, 
which symbolizes the love &  the emotional bond between them.

Grandma Was Dancing

She was a tappin' to the tunes...
of those Mississippi blues...
step-pin' out, in her white...
Pat-en-leather shoes,

We were a watchin' her a prancin',
all through the kitchen, dancin'...
for she was so...hot & sizzlin'...
hummin' to those Mississippi tunes...

Funny curlers too, upon...
her head...for a new... Hair dew,...
she was, a swirlin'-in that bakers apron,
when her head...star-ted a bobbin' to...
those Mississip-pi blues,

'Pots were a knockin'...
Grandma a sockin' down all she brews,
while that kettle there was whistlin',
in har-mo-ny, with them good ole...
good ole...mississip-pi moves,'

That floor there, was a bouncin'
holdin' hands we were a jumpin',
an-a hoppin' In the kitchen, to those...
                  sounds ...
Where Grandma's feet were a stompin',
In her new...New-white-sexy-pat-en-

Tears In The Wind

Tears In The Wind

Left hand deftly fingering strings on frets, 
While my right hand is picking or strumming. 
Composing a sad song about regrets
And searching a melody by humming. 
I easily find a chord progression,
Played in a melancholy minor key,
Then add some dynamics for expression--
Reaching a fugue-like state releases me
Fleeting perfection is my endeavor.
Like tears in the wind, now lost forever.

A Simple Kiss

A simple kiss will tell if you might love me.
A simple kiss will tell how much I care.
Yes, our lips will reveal 
Exactly how we feel;
So, kiss me…if you dare.

A simple kiss…it’s so very easy,
A simple kiss that only two can share;
But that kiss may be a chance
To find life’s true romance;
So, kiss me…kiss me… if you dare.

My heart began to race
When first I saw your face,
A face I had to dream to see;

Compelled to take this chance,
I dared to ask you for this dance,
And now, you're here... with me.

A simple kiss will tell if we might fall in love.
Surely, you have a kiss to share.
If you ever hoped for a chance
To find your life’s true romance,
Then, kiss me…Please kiss me… 
Kiss me…if you dare.

A Moment In Time

 I awoke to the song of the robin
 Calling out my name
 I felt the rays of sunshine
 Beating on my chest

 I thought I had forgotten that feeling
 That you gave to me last night
 I bask here in the memories
 Thinking of love songs and you

 I don't know the meaning
 I don't really care
 I don't want this feeling
 To ever disappear

 So if you please my darling
 Listen to my songs
 They come from lonely heart strings
 Hoping you will play along

Viagra and Beer

Too much Viagra and beer.
Too much Viagra and beer.
My wife was out of town,
I hit every club around.
Each time I'd hope to find
A horny woman here.

Country Bob's was the last club that was open.
Near blind drunk and horny, but I was still hopin'.
A pretty woman gave me a glance,
Smiled and said, "Nice pants.
Honey, I'm ridin' if you're ropin'."

A few hours later, I was in a Helluva mess
She's still ridin' hard and screamin', "God, this is the best!"
I was dizzy and light-headed. I had pains in my chest,
But she wouldn't stop long enough to call EMS.

When I came to, I was home in my own bed,
Next to my lovely wife; and this is what she said:
"I picked you up at Country Bob's, my dear;
And there's gonna be some changes around here.

You were fantastic last night;
So, I only think its right
If I supplement your diet 
With Viagra and beer."

Viagra and beer. Viagra and beer.
She treats me like a king,
Says I make her body sing;
So, I'm happy on my diet of Viagra and beer.

Yes, I'm happy on my diet of Viagra and beer.

I Don't Want To Know




If our story has an ending...I don't want to know... I shall put my hands up to my eyes, and turn my head away If goodbye words must be written, I don't want the world to know Please don't spread the word......If you care at all....what the ending said I cannot bear to know...... Let's pretend instead ..... I cannot bear to know Was I a fool to think you loved me before the ink was dry?... Was it just my fantasy........? What I always thought was meant forever...did it come with a goodbye? Was I blinded by the moonlight, and dazzled by a lie? Were we writing different stories, in our different worlds apart? Were you ripping empty pages, while I filled my own with heart? Was I a fool to let stars blind me, not to read between the lines? Was I lost in the dark........from the very start? Let us turn to chapter one again, and start it all again We can skip the end..........We'll begin again...we'll begin when love was new Where the pages lie unwritten, and the words are yet unsaid If goodbye words must be written, I don't want the world to know Please don't spread the word......If you care at all.....what the ending said If our story has an ending.....let us put it on the shelf If our story has an ending.....please keep it to yourself I can't bear to know......let's pretend instead ..... pretend it isn't so If our story has an ending...I don't want to know... I shall put my hands up to my eyes, and turn my head away

Promise

Promise
By: IzaDonna

You were such a young boy
With a tragic past
I know it still haunts you
Feeling like the pain will always last
Just remember, Just remember
I'm here for you
Keep your strength up
And always stay true

Chorus:
So make me a promise
A promise that you'll keep
Better your life
Before your into deep
I'll stick with you
Even when I'm gone
Watching from heaven
As you carry on
That's my promise

I know its a struggle
Fighting the demons of your past
Don't worry brother
I'll pick u up when ur falling fast
And always in my eyes
No matter what you do
I'll always have you back
No matter the decision you choose

Chorus

So when you feel
Like you wanna give in
Keep your head up
Remember where u've been
Find your inner strength
And moving toward
What you wanna achieve
Always push forward

Chorus X2

In My Life

There are places I remember Some I used to call my home Family house behind the curtain Tiny hotel room in Rome There are people that I met Walking down the path of life Meeting some I do regret Many still walk alongside There were moments in my life Many I admit were hard Gone with a blink of an eye Some I cherish in my heart All those moments and those places People that I know and knew They’d lose meaning, color, flavor If in my life there was no YOU.

Sapphire Star

Among the stars she searched for one
to be her friend on distant dome;
her thoughts to lay and whispered gnome,
her childhood tales and scopes undone.

Among the million bright sparkles,
she chose one that kindly signaled,
her lone thoughts to him syllabled
mind's endless lines and traced circles.

And in the endless astral fire
she saw his friendly blink to smile
similitude of a Greek isle,
it was the sparkling of sapphire.

A song ascends from the pine woods
to meet the smiling star of blue
and is their solitude untrue,
unsolved of questions understood.

And then she slept on distant fare,
along the bless of blue sapphire,
the tunes of a Greek ancient lyre,
accompanied their dreams in air.

And while she slept the sapphire weaved 
blankets of light she softly held
the lyre star song dreaming she spelled,
and then for nothing else she grieved.

Changed

If i were to tell you that my heart is gray
What would you do to make it red again?
If i were to say that i dont miss you
Would you understand my pain?
If i were to show you how much you mean
Would you notice that my heart stopped beating?
If i were to picture things in my mind to be perfect
What would you do to tell me things wont ever be the same?
If you were to tell me your heart was gray
I would give you mine in place of yours
If you were to say that you dont miss me
I would understand your pain
If you were to show me how much i mean
I would notice that your heart stopped beating
If you were to picture things in your mind to be perfect
I Would tell you that they are, your just ignoring it
I would tell you how big of a part you are in my life
I would say to you that you are my hero
I would show you my scars and heal your wounds
I would picture us in a place that does not harm love
If you could see the hole in my heart 
Would you bother to fix it 
Or would you let it fall apart?

Words of Life

Drowning in the pool of anguish…oh…oh…
I’m venturing into the forest…and I want to hear the words seep out 
Release these aching sorrows…I worry my soul’s drying out…
like a drought…
Drain out the fluids from my heart
It’s gouging me…bruising me to the core…

**chorus** 
Embrace the light…embrace the midnight sky…
You fall in my arms – you die so warm
Shed me more sun to lift up my spirits
From the…underground…and release me – I’m breathless
I’m drowning in doubt…ooh… oh… 


Remember me…I’m falling…into my swirling fate…hanging on the roots 
Strangling my heart…distorting in my veins… I’m bleeding so softly – cut out the wood…
Splintering me…I’m shattering… and I’m falling in the abyss
Bring me more radiance from my candle light
Warp me up in bliss…don’t let the midnight sky…don’t take away my delight
From the…ocean…and save me—save me…oh… oh…  I’m failing 

*chorus*

I’m drowning in regret…ooh..oh…
Hit the bull’s eye in my heart…embrace the light
And don’t leave me hanging in the abyss…hand me a kite!
Save me before I fall apart…shut out the night
And don’t let the dusk escape us…

I must confess…
I must confess…
I hate to see you abandon the light…
But I’m not the one to save you from the night
Ooh…ohh…

*Chorus* 

Splintering lies fill your heart 
I want to kiss it goodbye…
But you’ve mastered it like a piece of art
I want to kiss the abyss and die…
Dry… I wanna touch the sky with my whole soul
But I’m failing and the end of time has taken its toll
Tainted sorrow…swims around me…I dwell where the waters depart
But the anguish still swarms in my heart…
I’m failing…my heart stops beating
And my desires are fleeting
From my grasp
And the monsters laugh at me…as I fall… 

*chorus*

Embrace the midnight sky…catch me…catch me…
As I fall in death’s arms…I die so cold
And your heart is made of gold

Untangle the darkness & take away the nightmares 
Answer our prayers & block out the night 
Erase the heartaches & wipe away our tears
Unravel Your words of life & delight

It's Not Over

Don’t say it’s all over (cause it’s not)
“Sorry” won’t cover it…so don’t go on your knees and pray for my forgiveness 
Oh baby…don’t listen to the commotion…I’m done taking cover (it’s all for naught)
I’m plummeting in slow motion…into the remorseful pit…I’m plummeting in my nightmare’s abyss

I want to carry you through the night… 
I’m swimming in the ocean of my tears… 
My sodden wings lost its ability of flight…
You've been swimming in your distress for years… 

Shut up! Don’t say it...
Don’t even think of it (don’t even ponder it)
Hey! Don’t say it’s all over…though we’re breaking bit by bit 
‘Cause there’s more treasure to discover 

I want to remind you to fight the good fight…
My misery pools are brewing inside of my head…
I’m backing away from the light & exploring the night… 
You’re giving in to sleep and I’m wide awake on my bed 

Shut up! Don’t say it...
Don’t even think of it (don’t even ponder it)
Hey! Don’t say it’s all over…though we’re breaking bit by bit 
‘Cause there’s more treasure to discover 

Please don’t tell me…oh, don’t tell me…darling!
You’re giving up today… (I beg you to stay, despite your inner pain) 
I’m scared I might erupt – it could be quite startling!
Someday, things will change for the better… (Don’t turn the wrong lane)
I’m waiting for that day to arrive – perhaps it will wash away our dismay…

I promise you a tranquil reality 
I want to stray with you tonight 
I still have hope that He’ll set us free
I was wondering if you could stay the night
Maybe the Lord could grant us 
Pure, incredible delight 

Shut up! Don’t say it...
Don’t even think of it (don’t even ponder it)
Hey! Don’t say it’s all over…though we've plunged into our own pit 
‘Cause there’s more treasure to gather…

Song Within Me

Tell me, tell me is it true that a song lives deep within you
In your heart, your soul screaming to come out
Banging on the door, let me in, let me learn, let me love the
one who created all

I want to learn about my God
about his love for you 
his love for me
about his mercy and grace
I want to see his face on the day of days

oh, I know that it is  true
I know there's a song bagging to be free
living within me. 
I want to sing his praises  
I want to sing his name so all may know Jesus. God of Gods, King of Kings shine 
your love, your light, your grace upon me.

God the father, you sent only son to help us find way back to your loving grace 
How beautiful your way, guiding us taday 
Loving us the the way you do

Oh, how I long to know you, to see your holy face, your love and grace for the 
children you create how merciful your ways

Tell me, tell me is it true that a song lives deep within you
In your heart, your soul screaming to come out
Banging on the door, let me in, let me learn, let me love the

Songwriter's Sonnet

Songwriter's Sonnet Come, sit here beside me – it’s where you belong. Hand me my guitar – I’ll sing you a song About roads I have traveled and bridges I've crossed On destiny’s journey from where I was lost. I can tell you of victories in faraway lands Fighting for reasons no one understands. I've written of dangers that no man should face – I have written of things that time can’t erase Wanderlust drove me, for so many years, Through miles of wasteland and rivers of tears. I've been there and done that in so many things - I've written the songs that Destiny sings. My last song will be about that shining star That led me to Paradise – here, where you are.

Plenty of cash, don't care if she's a gold-digger
She broke-up with her ex and got me, lost and found
Get in bed, take out my pistol, let off a round
Shoot her up, shoot her up, bang, bang
Blowing on my mic', the best song she ever sang

The chick's riding me, she started to pant

She dropped down low, started giving brain, transplant

She's eating that wood, like she's a termite

Got something to quench her thirst, but it's not sprite

I think I might go down-town, to get some dessert

She's like a water gun when she climax, squirt

Always takes showers, but she's oh so dirty

Started at three, it's going on four-thirty

Make sure I meet her needs, you're a minute man

She say I got flavor, but you're kinda' bland

I'm speeding, you get home at six, it's rush-hour

Gotta' clean up for you, hit it in the shower

She's so wet, it's like swimming in the ocean

Hop out the shower, dry off, wipe her down with lotion

Starts to get upset, said she wanted me to stay

Ain't in Florida, but she might go M.I.A

A Dance A Flow

I try to follow the flow
though your move is slow
I seem to be falling behind
falling falling behind 

I like the cadence
of your language 
it gives me a dance 
I love that beat that dance

give me that cadence 
that balanced   rhythmic flow
because l want to dance and dance
without feeling wrong or slow 

your voice dances its way
marches into my soul in that way
as it gently rises and falls like that
please don`t stop l adore  that…

Tequila In My Boot An A Lime In My Pocket

In a couple of hours
 another town we'll be stoppin.
  At a big ole country bar
   where we can get the people rockin.
    At least until two
     I know that place will be hoppin.

So I've got tequila in my boot, an a lime in my pocket.

Once those country boys
 start drinking shots, their ain't no stoppin.
  An those nice ole country girls
   get out an dance, we'll be hoppin.
    I know at least until two
     That this big ole bar will be rocking.

So I've got tequila in my boot, an a lime in my pocket.

It's been a couple of hours
 an no one wants the music stoppin.
  At this big ole country bar
   everybody wants to keep a rockin.
    But it's almost now two
     an everybody is still a hoppin.

Going to have to get more tequila for my boot, an another lime for my pocket.

Soon the bar will be closin
 cause after this song we'll be stoppin.
  We had ourselves a good time
   as we kept the people rockin.
    With all the tequila that I drank
     I don't know if I, can continue hoppin.

I guess that's what is due, when ya putting tequila your boot, an a lime in your pocket.

Looking is the medicine

Written through the inspiration of John and Carla Sherman. who helped me gain my 
sanity back and through this start writing again.......Peter.

Looking is the medicine


I have been
The enemy of me
Trying to change me every kind of way
But nothing’s helped at all
It’s all beside the point
Now I listen to the words a man did say.

You have to look at you
That’s all you have to do
Then everything will start to come out right
All those things been written
They won’t help much at all
The ‘you’ of you must give the life some light.

Just take a look at you
That’s what the man did say
That’s the only way to lose the fear
Let the light shine on the story
That’s all one has to do
Then truth will come, as life becomes more clear.

This be the medicine
I take it every day
And as I do the lightness touches me
As all the fear is fading
To where it has to go
So I keep on looking oh, so endlessly.

Darkness Your Fear

Darkness You Fear
An Original by IzaDonna

I look at you and I see myself
Hatred bubbling between us
Can't change the past or stop the pain
Just want to be whole again
Sex and drugs are what consumes you
You slip away into the haze of the past
And I can't keep waiting
To see how long this lasts

Chorus
So I scream into the night
The fire burns within me
I have to find a release from you
Cause if I don't I'll fall into blackness
Tears stream down my face
As I hold back my dying rage
You were once in a lifetime

You laugh and smirk its all a big joke
The ultimatum is what you have come to wrote
The knife in my heart is getting deeper
And it burns with eternal flame
If I don't get away, this pain will never stop
You are the one to f**king blame

Chorus

So I stop all the fighting
I let myself fall into darkness
The voices in my head stops
I'm in need of an intervenltion from you
All I see is a dark cold world
The pain I feel is slowly releasing
And I become the darkness you fear

Chorus X2

High School Rock N' Roll

On my first day of high school I walked into the gym
I saw her sitting there with her MP3 player 
I knew she was definitely a sure fire tenner
With her big emerald green eyes
And her long auburn red hair
The beat was loud and strong 
Playing a real good hard rock song
And I knew for sure it wouldn't be long 
Till she would be dancing with me, yes me, 
And I knew for sure it wouldn't be long 
Till we would be dancing together, singing 

I love rock n' roll 
So rev up the volume on your MP3 baby 
I love rock n' roll 
So please take off that silly headset and dance with me 

She smiled so I walked up and asked for her name 
Long Tall Sally, she said, 
Because it's a rock n' roll name
She looked so good dressed in her Swagger Tiger blouse
And her tight form fitting faded jeans
She said do you think we can dance in the gymnasium 
I said sure, why not and just like that we were grooving on 
She was now with me, yes me 
And just like that we were grooving on
She was now with me, yes me, we were singing

I love rock n' roll 
So rev up the volume on your MP3 baby 
I love rock n' roll 
So please take off that silly headset and dance with me

Suddenly our groove was stopped by the girl’s basketball coach 
She told us that we couldn’t be grooving and moving during gym class 
She was a sure enough bummer, she sent us to the principal’s office 
And just like that we were grooving and moving on down the hallway
And we were still singing that same great song 
Yes she was with me and we were still singing 

I love rock n' roll 
So rev up the volume on your MP3 baby 
I love rock n' roll 
So please take off that silly headset and dance with me


I Love Rock N' Roll  --  Joan Jett

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.

Songs That I Sing

I'm a writer, not a fighter
sometimes I like to pull an all niter,
getting lost within thoughts in my head

I'm a man, with a plan
who's doing all that he can,
that you can trust by his word once it's said

These old songs that I sing, are now just a fading memory
Of the days when you loved to hear me play 
But them ole' tears will start to stream
with those beautiful notes and melodies 
knowing you won't hear a single word that I say

I'm strummer, a drummer
a son who loves his mother,
and I still love my father though he's dead

I'm a dreamer, a singer
a no town in between'er
with a heart that's been broke and then bled

These old songs that I sing, are now just a fading memory
Of the days when you loved to hear me play 
But them ole' tears will start to stream
with those beautiful notes and melodies
knowing you won't hear a single word that I say

I'm a reader, a leader 
an eternal life seeker,
thanking God for every second of life before bed

I'm a tryer, a cryer
a lost love for lifer
who is drowning in the tears that he's shed

These old songs that I sing, are now just a fading memory
Of the days when you loved to hear me play 
But them ole' tears will start to stream
with those beautiful notes and melodies
knowing you won't hear a single word that I say

Back on the guitar

Back on the guitar

I picked up my guitar today
In the corner it did lay
A magic moment came to me
And I felt the need to play
It’s not that I can play the thing
But I know a chord or two
In the old days, how I loved to play
Guitar, and blues harp too.

But anyhow I played some chords
And had a grand old time
Words forgotten, missing strings
Mucking up the rhyme
But boy! My fingers, they were sore
And it only took four songs
And so the will to play that beast
Was for the moment gone.

So me, I put the thing away
And made to write some words
Letting little memories
Within my mind be stirred
But it won’t be long I’ll play again
And have a little fun
Playing chords on that old guitar
Beneath the noon day sun.

Unfinished

It's all the seasons,
All the seasons in my world;
Storming all around.

All these thoughts may fill my mind,
But my time is memories.

It might drive me crazy,
Fulfilling all those needs.
And all the seeds of "maybe"
Won't be planted with my greed. 

And you'll thank me one day.
Three birds, they told me so:
"Learn from the thorns in your side,
Roses always bloom too slow". 

And the room yells "Maybe"!
Surely I'd love to go.
But riding on the winds of maybe,
Surely I'll never know....

Pricked

Your  love pricks me like a rose each thorn grows but no one knows Your so full of 
it as it shows so carry on now go on, go. I'm fed up with the phony and  i'm 
through with the tears, you couldn't pay me all your money to make up for those 
years. Someone help me I feel faint how could I think he was such a saint and 
worst of all I let me fall into a spiral down below. A magic called love carried 
by the dove of someone I use to know.

Mali

In old East Putnam A very long time ago Mother sang this song to me Oh so soft and low It's just a simple ditty She sang rocking in her chair

Death by Beauty

A smile moves across her lips
She gazes at her crime
A scar across her flesh and soul
To haunt her for all time
She’ll waste away for all she cares
Never stops to use her brain
Doesn’t care about the ones who are close
All she cares about is pain

She wants to be what the others expect of her
Doesn’t care about the self-respect for her
A rose can’t be a forget-me-not
Can’t she see what all she has got
Already?

Never to go back again
She feels the world is at an end
She will never show her grief
Although she’ll cry in empty streetS

She’d sooner live like a desolate mole
Living in fear in an empty hole
Screaming silent wails alone
Content to live in her mental home

A final tear falls from her eye
It hits the ground, it’s followed by
A beautiful body, mutated by hate
A kind word could have stopped it, but it is too late
One two many bricks in the wall in her mind
Molding her demise because her heart was blind
This self conscious being could never have won
For she was destroyed by the beautiful ones

She wouldn’t fight back, wouldn’t respect herself
In the end, she managed only to wreck herself
A rose can’t be a forget-me-not
Little did she know, she had all she had sought
Already

Save Me

Save Me
By: IzaDonna

Look in the mirror
Do you recognize her
Do you see the coldness in her eyes
Do you see where the darkness lies
Hidden secrets of the past
To late, the spells been cast
And as the stars arise
My own self will be my demise

Chorus:
So you think you can save me
Finally set my retched soul free
Be my ultimate savior
You thinking ur doing me a favor
But just let me alone
My fate is only my own

I get u try and u care
But thru it all u weren't there
I cant move on from my past
The agony I feel will always last
The knife is in way to deep
So let me shut my eyes and sleep
Cause u can't fix whats already broken
The pain I feel is better left unspoken

Chorus

So as the darkness creeps in
I feel I'm paying for my sins
No way to escape
My soul is yours to take
Just let me bleed these tears
Just let me lay here
Looking up at the sky
I ask God why

Chorus

Cause you can't fix what isn't broken
The pain is better left unspoken

A Used Heart Playing The Blues

This instrument called my heart That used to play love songs just for you Is now old,worn and tattered Barely even able to carry a tune Beautiful love songs it used to play Have now been turned to blues From a woman I used to love That has torn my heart in two Melodies that would always flow From a heart that was always so true Now broken it hurts to even play From a heart that's been so abused Through loneliness a heart gets worn Without all the love it was so used to Leaving beautiful memories that are now forlorn Almost unable to even play the blues A sad song will still play on Through these words that I call the blues From a heart that used to play love songs With all my heart,that were just for you

A Dog With No Place To Stay

I'm kind of a shy and quiet, sweet loving guy whose loneliness you won't often see But still I'll survive, as time goes by and my heart just hangs by a string If only I could show you, my silly little world it would remove that smile right from your face There is no shiny gold, sparkling diamonds or pearls just a lost dog with no place to stay All my hopes have been tossed, my mind has been lost don't know if I can go on another day I've got nothing left to loose, no more time left to snooze don't know why I keep living life this way Still each morning I wake up, unable to get enough of this same life, I live every day I've got only this life to loose, maybe it's time for me to choose if I should keep carrying on this same way Tomorrow I'll still be, that shy and quiet, sweet loving guy whose loneliness you will never feel I'll still be alive, as time still tic's by I guess that's just part of life's deal Now if only I could show you, my silly, lonely little world that would remove that smile right from your face No money or fancy cars, sparkling diamonds or pearls Just a forgotten dog with no place to stay

I'm In Love with a Memory

I'm in love with a memory
and you love just the thought of me
the idea of a woman by you
who can hear your thoughts.

I'm in love with the touch of your skin
and you ask what I think of your kin
freeze the fire that burns inside
fasting daily away from  me.

What is it, baby, 
that keeps you away?
What is it, darling,
that will set you free?

I've been praying hard for you
turn my flames into songs for you,
I've been hoping you'll wake up soon
see the tears i have cried for you.

What is it, baby, 
that keeps you away?
What is it, darling,
that will set you free?

I'm in love with the thought of you
making love at the thought of me,
waking up just to feel my skin
even though you don't like my kin.

I want you, baby, 
why can't you now see?
how thirsty I've grown,
away from you?

I am through playing hide and seek,
every day I keep growing weak,
I yearn daily for your embrace
but your coldness is my disgrace.

I love you, baby,
adore you darling
I cannot leave you
I cannot live

I'm in love with a memory...

Welcome to the Planet

Welcome to the planet
Wake me when it’s over
The dreamer’s always tempted
To come around and show her

And I just keep wastin my time
On girls that won’t love, me, like their wine
And it’s just too easy to blame
The rock and the system for causing my pain
And I just want you to know that I’m through
With being alone, when I’m with you 
And when you mask the truth with your lies
It just won’t get any better for the rest of your guys

And when you fall asleep
The night covers your tears
And the darkness sees you weeping
Cause your conscious can’t be cleared
This year you’re feeling colder
Your heart’s a little older
You haven’t found your soul mate
And now you think you’re too late

But one look inside of my eyes
Gives you the hope that there’s a guy
Who can make you feel happy and sad
And it’ll be worth it to feel that again

In The Mornin'

In The Mornin'

(Chorus)
I will see you in the mornin'
When this long night has flown away

There was a time when I was young
When life had only just begun
And lookin' back I'm glad that I was born then.

A simple time and slower pace
Until the day I saw her face
Then everything was changed without a warnin'.
(Chorus)
I will see you in the mornin'
When this long night has flown away

She took me captive from the start
But swore she'd never break my heart
And magic wove a web of love and more then.

She made me laugh. She made me cry
But always was my alibi 
Through thick and thin regardless of the stormin'...
(Repeat Chorus)

Then late one night these fourty years
Went flashing in a flood of tears.
I held her close and heard her whisper "Yours", then.

She closed her eyes. I wiped the tears.
Then one last time to ease my fears
She whispered out these words in sweet adorin'...
(Chorus)
I will see you in the mornin'
When this long night has flown away
I will see you in the mornin'
As the dawn breaks another day...

World of Love

From wrong to right,
From day to night,
It comes to light,
Everything comes in cycles,

The cold front days,
The lonely waves,
Are only lonely in candlelight.

The time for understanding,
beyond the moment here,
the cycle is returning,
Try to listen it will clear,
Through the cycle, and the breathing,
What was leaving, will come near,
Only time will disappear.

From young to old,
From hot to cold,
It will unfold
Into a cycle of consequence.

The time for understanding,
beyond the moment here,
the cycle is returning,
Try to listen it will clear,
Through the cycle, and the breathing,
What was leaving, will come near,
Only time will disappear.

The best defeats,
Are bittersweet,
Are incomplete,
All in the cycle of circumstance,
All in the wonderful,
Wonderful  world of love
Let it come, let it come,
To the wonderful, wonderful
World of love,
The chance for love,
Let it come.
Wonderful, wonderful
World of love,
World of love,
World of love.
World of love.
Let it come.

FREEDOM SONG

Do you know the path to freedom,
do you know the road to peace,
do you know the value of truth and wisdom -
let’s bind our hands across the land.

Do you know how to love your brother,
do you know how to understand,
do you realize that you live only once -
let’s fill the world with love and joy.

The world is in a state of sorrow,
poverty, wars and hate abound;
let us stop all of these philosophizing,
let’s sing the song of peace instead.

The world is in a state of sorrow,

Im Sorry

I hope you remember all of the bad things you have done so far
I hope you still have the chance to fix them 
Im sorry it took me forever to write this letter to you
Ive been meaning to save you from what your about to become
For some reason i cant get a grip on it
I dont know what i want to say
I dont know how to help you
Im about to tell you about some of the things you are about to do
Right now your 16
Right now you are sitting on your bed listening to music
Reading a book on your favorite band
Smoking that cigarette
That will soon get you into all the other things that causes more problems for you
Try to avoid the guy you are about to let into your life
Remember that your not allowed to talk to strangers
Remember your mom told you that when you were 7
Its about time you listen to her
You will meet a girl
And you will end up hurting her
Dont take her to that club 
Where your band is about to play
Your not good at singing
And your bass playing still needs some work
Dont embarass yourself
It lowers your self esteem
And you will try to committ suicide
Multiple times
But dont worry 
It doesnt work
So stop trying to 
Kill yourself
Remember the night when you ran away
And went to go live with your aunt
Yea...
Shes about to kick you out
Look under your bed
You will find 500 dollars
You put it there when you were young
You forgot 
Thats why im writing you
Remember it
Take it and use it wisely
Dont use it on the drugs 
Dont use it on the beer
Use it towards a better future
So then i dont have to write this letter again.

My Heart Won't Let Go Of That Dream

My Heart Won't Let Go Of That Dream With your love came the hope of a dream That we shared through some joy and some pain. Though we knew our love could not stay --- I still have a dream from yesterday. For so long we tried to pretend Our love would go on and never end. All too soon we found love could not stay --- And my heart cried out as you walked away. But my heart won’t let go of that dream --- No matter how hard it may seem. Though I knew I’d have to let you go, My heart just won’t let go of that dream. (Instrumental Break) Now you say we can only be friends --- And you tell me this heartbreak will mend. Now I find life is not what it seems As I try to turn loose of a dream. But my heart won’t let go of that dream --- No matter how hard it may seem. Though I knew I’d have to let you go, My heart just won’t let go of that dream. John Posey 10/14/13 My Heart Won't Let Go Of That dream Country Music

Theres mistakes

The ones that wont erase
Tell the ones that cared enough 
That i finally left this place
So play the song
Its something to remind you

Double-O Somethng

A dozen passports, with his photos, confused the law wherever he’s been--
Because he lives in the shadows, and has a number instead of a name.
He spends most nights in casinos, with ladies of dubious fame,
And wears the choicest tuxedos, with the most impressive brand name.

He’s a Double-O-something.  It’s said he’s got a license to kill.
You better take my meaning: if he says he’ll get you, he will!

He always drives something faster, with accessories you just can’t buy,
Which leaves trails of disaster.	You can’t catch him, don’t even try!
You might spot him in Paris, tailing a gangster or drinking fine wine;
Or playing cards with a terrorist, who soon will be doing hard time.

He’s a Double-O-something.  It’s said he’s got a license to kill.
You better take my meaning:  if he says he’ll get you, he will!

Quit My Job, Smashed My Car

Quit my job, smashed my car
My back does throb, need to learn guitar

So I can make, a silly song
And I can sing, it all day long
About how, my God is strong
So that even now, nothing’s wrong

Even though, I quit my job
smashed my car, my back does throb

Life is hard, but I’ve got God
So I won’t let any thought
Any worry or fear
Convince me you’re not near

Even when, I quit my job,
Smashed my car, my back does throb
Life is hard, but I won’t sob
I need to learn guitar

I Can't Say It Without You

I was your never ending composer
We spent many a nights, and many an hour together
But now you’re lost inside
And I can’t find my way, again.

( chorus )
Cause I can’t say it without you		
It hurts to be without the feeling		
Never knowing when it will return		
But I know that you would stay with me	
If you came back, again some day		
But till then I’ll wait till you appear.	

I really miss the way you make me feel
People said we were meant to be together
Why’d you leave me so unexpectedly
I hope you come back soon.

( Chorus )

It’s been two months since I’ve written you
All I’ve got to show is crumpled bits of paper
The passion and creativity is now gone
So come back home so I can work it out.

A New Year Song

The garrish glares light now the sky
And upward turns the people's eye
In every heart a silent longing
On every saged heart a silent wish
For all things old must swiftly perish
And all embrace the year's new coming
And all be glad to sing
A love song to the king
A love song to the king
And all be glad to sing
To God who promised everything
And saved us on eagle's wing
And light gleams a thousand hopes
A thousand kisses bring
And marching feet conquer new the slopes
And happy children sing
The new year, the new year, another chance
To live, and love again, and laugh, and dance
And worship new the king
And worship now the king

Injustice

Injustice....
You, Destroyed My Love....
I Will Not Forgive
Look!, You Did This To Me
Therefore..... I Wont Continue To Love...
Your Ego Made The Problem Bigger, (Bigger)
You Working Overseas
 (So You Say)
You Working Multiple Flings
So Stand Up, Stand Up
Face Me, Communicate To Me
I Dont Think You Have The Guts
So Stay Flinging Out In Germany
Oh, Injustice
You, Destroyed My Love....
Oh, Injustice
You, Destroyed My Love...

Rap Against Racism

It's all good like they say in the hood
And we will overcome if we don't play dumb
Lookin' to extend the dream of equality
Hopin' for a life with a little  frivolity.

We gotta' hold the mothers to their promise of beneficence
And not keep claiming this lie of innocence
Bleedin' heart libral thinks he done sump'n philanthropic
While he knows in his gut he, too, has been so sadistic.

Guilt has but a fleeting recognition
And pity don't pay for slavery's abolition.

Set Me Free

You say you'll never go
But you're already gone my dear
So what's the sense in you
Just hangin around

It's just convenient space for you
Not really what you wanna do
Your lack o'love
Is pullin me down

You'll break my heart
But set me free
Just walk away and leave me be
Alone to maybe make a new start

You say you'll never go
But you're already gone my dear
So what's the sense in you
Just hangin around

To see your face just 
Brings me pain
To know our love is not the same
There's nothin I can do to make it right
So set me free and turn away
Maybe I'll forget this day
And find a love to fill my empty heart

Here Is Gone

Ever thought of something so much
That when you wake up it just automatically
Crawls into your brain cells
Shoots them with laser beams
Until they explode 
And that’s the only thing you have left to think of
Because everything else is fried
Ever wish you could go back and change that night
Wish that you wouldn’t have left her side
That you would have just listened to your heart 
Instead of your gut
Instead of that little voice that echoes
In the back of your head
Ever wished that you wouldn’t be reading this poem
That everything could be like your dreams
Like a family who gets along
Like having a famous relative
Dreaming that you had a better life
More money to spend
More bass guitars to buy
Less drama
Then you find this special someone
Who you can really relate to
And you never want to let them go
But somehow they slip through your fingers
Then your life crumbles 
Falling down like the rain in a thunderstorm
Wishing you could change everything
But you just start over
And try to move on
And somehow end up at the beginning all over again

All I Have Left

Now that it’s over --- Now that it’s through All I have left Are these songs about you. I wrote a song about the night I met you. Then came the one about the broken dreams. I almost died the night I wrote the verses About how things are never what they seem. Then came the one about the lost tomorrows That, somehow, we both knew we’d never see. Now I sit and try to write the final chorus To a song that tells just how it used to be. Now that it’s over --- Now that it’s through All I have left Are these songs about you. Once I wrote a song about forever --- You told me that you liked it most of all. But, somehow, our forever never happened And broken dreams are all that I recall. So, a hundred songs cannot erase the sorrow --- Nor a thousand verses ever still the pain --- And a million years could never dim the pleasure I would know if I could hold you once again. Now that it’s over --- Now that it’s through All I have left Are these songs about you.

LifeLess

Life Less
By: IzaDonna

Such a lonely girl along the road
No one helps her, no where to go
Tears are falling from her face
She wipes them away with disgrace
Nothing but the clothes on her back
Once standing in light now in black
N I'm hoping she still has drive
N keep pushing to stay alive

Chorus:
As the memories come flooding in
She realizes shes lived in sin
Can she change it, starting today
Before her life fully slips away
Can she finally fight her fight
Cause if not she'll die tonight
Can't u realize she isnt a soldier
All she really wants is someone to hold her

As she looks at the poison
Her soul has finally chosen
She lifts it up n throws it on the ground
Thanking the strength thats deep inside
Finally free again, dont have to hide
Erase the slate, n take a stand
This is it now, one last chance

Chorus X2

My Guardian Dear

When I was young I thought I knew 
How to talk and speak with you 
But time has put a wedge between
My angel, conscience, inner being.
I spoke to you , I spoke to you

The one who told me right from wrong,
Comforted me all day long. 
Helped me choose which way to go,
When undecided, I didn't know.
I spoke to you. I spoke to you.

Some call you Gabriel, 
My Guardian Angel, I did tell,
My hopes,my fears,my dreams to be,
Untold to others was free with thee.
I spoke to you, I spoke to you.

Comfortable, believing that you were there,
To guide me through every prayer.
You had a name I knew it then,
I said it time and time again.
I spoke to you, I spoke to you 

I was a child of seven or eight,
I knew when called I need not wait
For you my angel to appear 
To clear my conscience and my fear
I spoke to you, I spoke to you.

The older I grew, less time was spent
Talking to you,trying to vent
Friends became closer to me,
I shared more with them and left you be
I spoke to you, I spoke to you.

Now as I'm in the prime of life
Mother to my son, no longer a wife,
I wonder late at night if you
Will answer my questions like you used to do
I spoke to you, I spoke to you

Afraid to test, afraid to fail,
Wanting and hoping you did not bail 
Praying that your still at my side
To light, to guard,to rule and guide. 
I spoke to you, I spoke to you.

My faith has told me you are here.
Watching me and always near.
My pride, my walls have come down
Last night,I spoke with no one around.
I spoke to you, I spoke to you.

My Guardian Angel you were there
You listened and helped with every prayer,
My hopeless feelings lonely, just me
Ended last night when you returned to me
I spoke to you, I spoke to you
I"ll speak to you, yes speak with you.

Filled with Song

My fingers brush the strings of an old guitar, hidden away in the closet in my room.
A small smile plays my lips and I close my eyes, picturing me playing that guitar.
Me singing some song on a bench in the rain.
Singing the music that makes my heartbeat pulse through my whole body.

I can sing. I know I can, I just need practice.
I laugh as I picture the look on my friends faces when I tell them this.
I smile and put the guitar away, all the while thinking of how I'd love to learn to play 
that guitar.
To go to a friends party and sing. To make them feel what I do when I ride a high 
brought on by nothing more or less than music.

Breathless, I sit on my bed, my face glowing.
I will learn. I will learn to let out the song that makes my heart fill with so much joy I 
feel like I'm going to explode.

Still smiling, I put on my favorite music and let that high take me to a higher place.

Cancer

I can't believe I haven't posted this one. I wrote it last year, can't remember the exact date. Anyhow it's a song. ---------------- You know this world is cancer Without these prayers being answered It's been too long a ponder We wonder We wander Far from here Lost in fear Can you see them fall? You lose one you lose them all She's seen the cruel hearts of stone She's seen the cancer we've become So lost in worry we just fall down Underground we burn Till the last one's sure Can you see me fall? You lose one you lose them all Cut me out of this body! Cut me out of everybody! Grind me into little pieces! Tell them that I'm the reason- You know this world is cancer Without these prayers being answered It's been too long a ponder We wonder We wander Far from here Lost in fear Can you see me fall? You lose one you lose them all You lose one you lose. . . Them all

Change A Smile

My old man had to pass down his name,
But with three daughters it had to change.
With a little luck that took awhile,
“It’s a boy, sir,” and it changed his smile.

I grew up strong, and learned to be quick,
Running from the bully who deserved a lick.
Tired of his fist as we lined up single file.
So I gave him his due, and it changed his smile.

Chorus:
To change a smile
All you gotta do.
Is find the power
That’s inside of you.
But beware my friend
With an artist’s brush
When painting lips
Don’t be in a rush.
See a well crafted face
Is a masterpiece.
And like the Mona Lisa
A smile beams peace!

Senior year high school I kissed sweet Marie
The prettiest little thing who was good to me.
She said I was romantic and full of style,
And the sound of her voice always changed my smile.

That summer in love, until all of a sudden
Marie said she was moving, as if there’s a button,
That could turn love off, I was helpless as a child.
Sweet Marie, don’t leave me; don’t change my smile.

Soon after college, work got tough.
Slaving long days, I knew I had enough.
I went to my boss, his nose in a file,
And told him I quit, and changed his smile.

Then one day cupid flew close overhead,
Where he let go an arrow, til’ passion I bled.
He targeted, Susie whose number I dialed,
In love for life, oh yeah!  She changed my smile.

Please Help Me, Re-lyric

Please help me, I've fallen
In Lust with You.
You're just so damn sexy,
That's why I'm hittin' on you.
You don't have to love me,
Some good sex will do.
Please help me, I've fallen
In Lust with You.

Yes, you turned me on
When I saw you walk in...
The face of an Angel,
A body just made for Sin.
Now, I may be real horny,
But one thing is true:
What would satisfy me, Girl
Would be to satisfy You.

So please help me, I've fallen
In Lust with You; 
And I hope that you're fallin'
In Lust with me too;
But if not, then please fake it,
Please don't leave me "blue"...
Please help me, I've fallen
In  Lust  with  You.

Emmanuel

Contest entry

I know that I… will not find love again.
Through twilight eyes …I long to feel you once again
‘Emmanuel’ the breeze, whispers to me your name
The love I lost … no more a burning flame.

We had a once in a lifetime …..  love affair 
No love was ere like this …. no… no love I swear 
Now you are gone…  I am barren all alone 
To never dance more … or hear your lover’s moan

We glided… across the floor … in each other arms so close so tight,  
I never thought the dance would end or the dawn would break on that…. endless magical love .. that dream and star filled night.
No more to hold you … my arms are empty n’ere to kiss your lips,       
 to feel… your manliness …your head  …on my shoulder… to feel as one… and feel the hopes or our dreams that were then still insight.


She stepped between us… an ephemeral form one turn took…… all from me.
It was as though our love was ne - ver meant to be
Emmanuel I sit here … with the ghost of you
And in my loneliness … I see what I must do.

Come Inside

Your heavy heart is weary, worn
Bloody and bruised, it’s fiercely torn
To Loneliness, a vow you've sworn
To dwell in night without a morn
Come inside

To live and love, you've lost your will 
Of sorrow’s cup you've had your fill
Desire’s longing, quiet…still
Heart frozen by rejection’s chill
Come inside

Chorus
Come inside my chamber, feel the fire
Come inside my heart, dip in desire
Come inside my soul, devoid of brier
Come inside my mind, your pain retire

Refrain
Come
Come
Come inside my body, come inside
Come and dip inside my pleasure’s tide
Come inside my body, come inside
Come glide into heaven, come abide
Come
Come
Come…..I N S I D E

Louder Then Words

paper hearts can never foil 
the obvious from happening 
you speak of despair 
like you come 
from a place of happiness 
you fuel me 
like the water liquor burns 
we move 
like the fire of hearts 
young and torn 

after all you're left for dead
you better off coming off your meds
the sweetest thing you said to me
is actions speak louder than words

i'm no longer yours to forgive or forget 
living like cliches 
the secret is to forgive and forget
counting down the days 
the minutes you mark 
i'll be here when the hours are dark 
roaming like children 
screaming of riddles in the park
easy like noah never parked his ark 
gritty like paper hearts 
we never fold 
the sweetest thing i was ever told 
"actions speak louder then words" 

after all you're left for dead
you better off coming off your meds
the sweetest thing you said to me
is actions speak louder than words

i'm no longer yours 
to forgive & forget
i'm no longer yours 
to live with regret

Pretty Love
Kind touches
Sugar Hello’s
Melodic kisses

Swift feet that run towards peace
Ears that hear that the innocent ones have been released
Eyes that see the goodness in increase
Arms that reach out to embrace and greet

Handsome hearts
Gorgeous souls
Two minds have met
That has made a whole

Lovely is their morning song
Kindness subverts all wrong
How long is long

Forever and a day

Pretend

Pretend
By: IzaDonna

Do you realize the lonely girl
With the fake smile on her face?
No one would have ever thought
She ever felt out of place
Using jokes to deal with pain
Pushing feelings deep down below
No one ever realized she needed help
The realization was not at first known

Chrous
Somebody please help her
Make her open up at last
Her downward spiral is spinning fast
Make her finally see
That all her troubles can be set free
She doesn't have to pretend

They waited to long to help
As she slipped away from light
Trying to bring her back
Bring her back to this life
The light flooded back in
As she breathed life once again
A chance to start anew
A chance to make amends

Chrous

So you might think shes weak
But shes survived more than you know
So don't be so quick to judge
When she reaches her all time low
If you would have cared from the start
Then maybe she wouldn't have felt so alone
Cause then her smile would be sincere
And her happiness would be shown

Chorus X2

In The Spotlight

Let the spotlight shine
And let the music out
Don't waste no time
I need to dance about

Singer in the spotlight
Giving his songs away
Makin' life feel just right
At least just for today

Float me off from here
I need to see the sunlight
Maybe I'm not clear
I need to get my head right

Help me out this time
Play my favorite song
Even out of time
You can't get it wrong

Singer in the spotlight
A million miles away
Makin' life feel just right
Can I hear him play

That's the very one
I can float away
Even when it's done 
Another one should play

Don't take that bow
Don't go away
Do you have to leave now
We all want to play

Singer in the spotlight
Let us hear you play
Makin' life feel just right
Oh please won't you stay

The show goes down the road
May be back one day
Pay the bills I owed
Put some cash away

And when they come back 'round
Well you never can say
If my money's sound
Could be on my way

Singer in the spotlight
With his band at play
Makin' life feel just right
Never go away

Love and Hate

Love is symbolic 
Hate is diabolic 

Love always survives 
Where hate never thrives

Love shall succeed
But hate shall recede 

(Why can't you love me?
Because you hate me!)

Love will always prevail
Your hate will always fail

(Why you hate me so much?
There's no love left in you as such!)

I love you when you hate me
I hate you when you don't love me

(If you can not love me
You should never hate me)

Let's move on with this love and hate
For someday your hate shall retire & abate

(But still I love you so much my dear
Or is it because of my hate, you fear) 

And even if you don't love me
You will never hate me

A Pub-ng We Go

Hey, Ho! A pub’ng we go… And I’ll bring along, those Zany Trolls.
What’s better, than to drink, with friends, my Dear… as merrily, off we go!

We’ll leave the frats, in the dust, and bring The Bun, merrily, along.
He had a great run, at Easter time, now he can let, the good times roll.
Who knows best, than a nest of Trolls, how to have, a really great time!
A Biker Bar should fill our sails, as we go, courting the best… of it all.

Hey, Ho! A pub’ng we go… And I’ll bring along, those Zany Trolls.
What’s better, than to drink, with friends, my Dear…as merrily, off we go!

The beers great, the girls’ first rate, I’ll ride a full-blown Harley Hog.
To ride them down, across the town, my hair, flowing behind, in the air.
But first we’ll make a new drinking song, betting on, who’s best, by far.
Biker Dudes, Trolls enthused, raise their mugs in unity, again, once more!

Hey, Ho! A pub’ng we go… And I’ll bring along, those Zany Trolls.
What’s better, than to drink, with friends, my Dear… as merrily, off we go!

It’s all fun, as with pool cues in hand, we try to, learn to play Eight Ball.
We’ll dance on the floor, and some on the bar, as rowdier we become.
But we’re the best, with glass in fist, as we sing our new… drinking song.
So don’t be glum! Here, come along, to laughter amid, such joyful fun.
 
Hey, Ho! A pub’ng we go… And I’ll bring along, those Zany Trolls.
What’s better, than to drink, with friends, my Dear… as merrily, off we go!

We’ll have fun, then move along, as our song wins, and the tab is yours.
You can join, as comes, the next bar, and we’ll, start all over, once more!
It’s party time, until dawn, for Trolls can hold, great quantities of rum.
As drinking games come, we win every time, as the losers pay the bill.

Hey, Ho! A pub’ng we go… And I’ll bring along, those, Zany Trolls.
What’s better, than to drink, with friends, my Dear…as merrily, off we go!

(A drinking song for the pure fun it: sung like a pirate song clinking mugs.)

you dont understand

Hes inlove with his sadness
Being alone helps him think
He can hear his thoughts clearly
Hes getting to the point where
He loves being the center
Of attention
Being depressed helps his sickness
This goes on
And on
And on
Looking at life in a different way
You cannot see what he sees
Love isnt pure
Its evil spelt backwards
As is devil spelt
Backwards is lived
He has his hyper days
Three days of hyper
Three days of depressed
Three days of death
No days of life
This goes on
And on
And on
Sitting all alone in his room
Writing this story your reading
Can you see?
What he sees?
Or do you not understand sadness
Enough to grasps
What hes trying to say to you

Only God can make a honky tonk angel,

God done went and did Himself proud
when He made honky tonk angels,
because it was a honky tonk angel

You Are the One

She lays in his arms
he asks her what's wrong
the silence you keep
and the smile you fake
I know that something's on your mind
She says i don't understand
how someone like you
could love me the way you do
and he says

You are the one
that makes my heart beat 
that completes me
never look down upon your soul
you are the one
that makes my hands shake 
you're my whole life babe
you make me feel so whole
so don't underestimate 
what you do for a wounded soul
I looked everywhere for someone to save me 
and finally 
you are the one

they sit down for dinner 
he says it's been so long since we've been together
and there's something that I have to say
he gets on one knee and pulls out a ring
I cant't imagine why you're here to this day
but I hope there is not coming our way
and she says

You are the one
that makes my heart beat 
that completes me
never look down upon your soul
you are the one
that makes my hands shake 
you're my whole life babe
you make me feel so whole
so don't underestimate 
what you do for a wounded soul
I looked everywhere for someone to save me 
and finally 
you are the one

the preacher speaks
God's words does he say
Faith has brought us to this day
they look in each others eyes
and only they can see

You are the one
that makes my heart beat 
that completes me
never look down upon your soul
you are the one
that makes my hands shake 
you're my whole life babe
you make me feel so whole
so don't underestimate 
what you do for a wounded soul
I looked everywhere for someone to save me 
and finally 
you are the one

no one else was there for me
no one else stopped my heart form bleding
only you can make me feel this way
only you can find my true smile
among the hopeless and the broken
you are the one that saved me from it all

you are the one
that makes my heart beat  
that completes me
never look down upon your soul
I looked everywhere
for someone to save me
and finally
you are the one

thank everything 
In this beautiful world
That made for me
you were there for me
you are the one


Details | Lyric | |

I see you

Chasing eyes, against the tide
Raise your hands, really high
Feel the breeze, energy increases
On the mirror of your soul

I see, you looking
Away, why is that?
I’m right here
Don’t you see?

Embracing lies, against my mind
Run in those lands, just fly
Bleed your feet, where the soul lives
Is where I wanna go

Look at me
Once, now
There’s no next time
Can’t you see?
Can’t you believe?
Are you afraid?
Just look at me
I promise you peace

Look at my mirror
You’ll see part of you
Our souls are playing
I see it, that’s why I sing.this.

Parody to Chris brown's song Dont Judge Me

Why you wanna go there ?
I don’t wanna go there, 
I guess I gotta go there,
 you asked me out on a date,
 then we go to a place that I hate, 
you said the place would be nice,
 but all I get is a sweet tea no ice,
 not even a parfait with granola,
 tal vez él habla española? 
So please don’t ask me, 
and I wont ask you, 
because if you wanna date again, 
then you better let me supersize

Trapped

Trapped
By: IzaDonna

The darkness you fear
Is what I saw as a child
The love you claim to own
Is something I don't know
All these emotions you have
Mine are non-existent
So can you tell me
Am I trapped?

Chorus
I spend every damn day
Waiting to be set free
Trapped within myself
With all these horrid memories
But you'll never know my sickness
Or how far deep in I am
Forever trapped in this darkness
I feel I am forsaken

This path I walk down
Is always getting longer
These struggles I go thru
Are constantly never ending
Remembering nothing but the past
Just keeps making me more numb
So can you tell me,
Am I trapped?

Chorus

I'm a ticking tragedy
Just waiting to happen
Theres nothing left to do, but
Find the strength to see things thru
So when they try to take the light away
I know I'll try my best to stay
So tell me, am I trapped?

Chorus X2

So tell me, am I trapped

DON'T LET YOUR MUSE DIE

Oh, the music we made was so incredible
Two weeks straight, we were inseparable

We had hits, rode to number one
All the thoughts ya think
Until our song was done
Baby, we caught a groove
We rode the high wave
Yeah, we touched the stars
With the music we made

Yeah, remember how I made ya feel
I danced in your mind
Tasted feelings so real
Baby, I allowed you to see
Breathe in what's inside
Capture all that's meant to be
This kind of love ya just can't hide

Still in your room, don't even know I'm there
In an adventurous mood, but you don't care

Got busy with the world and ya let me fly
Where's your dancing shoes
Too distracted to say goodbye
Baby, I didn't see this coming
If I could ya know I'd cry
You've got to break free
Please don't let your muse die

*After almost two weeks of a sweet, non-stop muse my tough work schedule 
has got her hanging by a thread.  The poem is taken from her perspective as 
she herself now muses over the past two weeks and where we are tonight.

Date: 8-12-14

My Cell Phone Keeps Vibrate'n

Earlier this morning, while she was in the shower
I packed all my belongings; I knew I had an hour
Then I slipped out the back door, like the coward that I am
Now in my pants’ front pocket my cell phone is vibrate’n

My cell phone keeps vibrate’n, I feel it against my thigh
But I cannot answer it, because I know I’ll start to cry
My spirit has been broken; my heart’s been torn in two
I am driving to find a dead-zone where her calls can’t come through

I left a copy of the email I found the night before
Laying on her pillow, in the pieces that I tore
It spoke of the secrets that they’ve shared behind my back
Now my cell phone keeps vibrate’n but I ain’t coming back

My cell phone keeps vibrate’n, I feel it against my thigh
But I cannot answer it, because I know I’ll start to cry
My spirit has been broken; my heart’s been torn in two
I am driving to find a dead-zone where her calls can’t come through

Memories of loving her are circling through my mind
But forgiveness for a lost in trust is something I can’t find
A “ding” says there’s an email; a “beep” means there’s a text
And when it starts vibrate’n I feel my heart bleeding in my chest

My cell phone keeps vibrate’n, I feel it against my thigh
But I cannot answer it, because I know I’ll start to cry
My spirit has been broken; my heart’s been torn in two
I am driving to find a dead-zone where her calls can’t come through

Meet Me At The Gates

Standing across from damien
whom had been his lover for yea
He takes his heart out of his chest
And places it in Damiens hands
Kurt says "this heart belongs to you"
He askes Damien "do you want it?"
Damien places Kurts heart in his hands
"i dont"
Kurt throws it to the ground and stomps on it
Looking down at his crumpled heart a tear 
Falls from his cheek
He starts walking away
He falls to his knees
Like suffocating
Damien runs over to him
But is blocked by a black mist
Damien stands there whispering
"Kurt come back"
Kurt stands up and places his heart
Into Damiens pocket
As Kurt turns and walks away
The sky opens up
And kurt rises to the clouds
A few years later Damien joins him up at the gates

WHY

                           This is a song by Rascal Flatts that I have requested to
                                be played at my funeral in the very near future.

It must have been in a place so dark,you couldn't see the light,
reaching for you through that stormy cloud.Now here we are gathered
in our little home town,this can't be the way you meant to draw a crowd.

(chorus) Oh why,that's what I keep asking,was there anything I could have
              said or done.Oh I had no clue you were masking,a troubled soul,
              GOD only knows,what went wrong,and why you would leave the
              stage in the middle of a song.                                                           

Now in my mind I keep you frozen as a seventeen year old,rounding third 
to score the winning run.You always played with passion no matter what 
the game,when you took the stage you shinned just like the sun.

     (CHORUS)

Now the oak trees are swaying in the early autumn breeze,a bolt of sun is
shinning on my face.The tangled thoughts I hear,a mockingbird sings,this 
world really ain't that bad a place.

               Oh why,there's no comprehending,but who am I to try to judge
               or explain.Oh but I do have one burning question?Who told you
               life,wasn't worth the fight,they were wrong,they lied,now your
               gone,and we cried,cause it's not like you to walk away in the 
               middle of a song.Your beautiful song.



                                                                          Song by Rascal Flatts

Can't Keep Me

-inspired by Lead Belly's "Gallis Pole"-

See, I got no need for silver,
And, there ain't no more need for gold,
I run outta chances at deals,
Can't keep me from kickin' my heels.

Brother, y'ain't got near 'nough to lend,
Here futures are worthless to spend,
Don't matter now, them turnin' wheels,
Can't keep me from kickin' my heels.

Ma, do I remain in your thoughts?
Or, have you grown tired of my plots?
I can't even guess how it feels,
Can't keep me from kickin' my heels.

My so-called friend, my so-called friend,
My so-called friend's gone in the end,
It's at some strange alter he kneels,
Can't keep me from kickin' my heels.

As I face this, my final trial,
No more of nothin' left to file,
Won't be no last-minute appeals,
Can't keep me from kickin' my heels.

Served my choice night before the noose,
Knowin' how my bowels will let loose,
And, how same's true of all last meals,
Can't keep me from kickin' my heels.

See, I got no need for silver,
And, there ain't no more need for gold,
I run outta chances at deals,
Can't keep me from kickin' my heels.

To Someone Like You

1.  Rumors say that someone wants you.   
What do you think? Could they be true?
Those rumors were started by me:
The one that you pass, but don’t ever see.

2.  What should I say when you walk by?
Give me a chance, I won’t make you cry.
You might find that it’s worth your while
To turn around and give me a smile.

3.  What to say to someone like you?
How do you do?  Would you love me too?
I’m not really into small talk.
So take my hand, let’s go for a walk

Chorus
When you pass by, I can’t say a word.
So many poems that you’ve never heard.
Songs from my heart to endear me to you
That I can’t sing when I’m looking at you.


Details | Lyric | |

Don't Doubt I Love You

You can doubt the sun will rise
Or that the skies are ever blue.
You can doubt an eagle flies
Or that truths are ever true.
You can doubt everything you see
Within your field of view.
But don’t you ever doubt…
Never doubt that I love you

You can doubt the change of seasons
Or that stars will always shine.
You can doubt both faith and reason,
And that elements combine.
You can doubt the things I say
And the things you see me do.
But don’t you ever doubt…
Never doubt that I love you

No, do not ever doubt.
No, do not ever doubt.
No, do not ever doubt I love you.

Where In The World Has Our Passion Gone

Where in the world has our passion gone Like when I couldn't wait to see you everyday It somehow slipped off, and left us here all alone I always thought love was gonna be here to stay We're no longer holding hands, as we walk through the park Like we did when we were kids back in the day No more laying in the grass, under the stars in the dark I never thought we'd be liven life this way Where in the world has our passion gone Like when I couldn't wait to kiss your sweet lips everyday Now all that's left is this cold and lonely home And it looks like that's the way it's gonna stay We're no longer making love, until the cows come home Like we did with every chance back in the day No more "I love you" goodbyes, when we hang up the phone I can't believe life has changed for us this way I'll tell you right now, where our passion has gone It's gone like the love tune records, you used to play Only thing left is cold shoulders, that chill you to the bone All gone with the "I love yous" that you no longer say
Danny Boy: 9-19-13 Another one of those songs I just had to get out. :o)

Ophelia

From my teenage daze

She was getting down to a guitar groove
She could rock and roll ( boy could she)!!
When her mom and dad raised her
'Bet they broke the mold

She was wearing cool black leather jeans
Just like a second skin
"Said Hi..My names Ophelia!
Wanna take a sawdust spin

Ophelia..asked me to dance
(did it..did it..did it)
That pretty little amber blonde
Put me in a black leather trance

I thought...Girl if you've got a mindset
To give my heart a thrill
Ophelia......Well I think I will!

Then she put her little satin hand in mine
The softest touch I had felt in a long time
I saw magic in her warm brown eyes
If it is really real
She might turn this sawdust into silk

Ophelia...asked me to dance.........

Sad Excuses

Kill it all away
Like they havent hurt you before
You give them a new begining
But they keep using the same old Excuses
Everytime you ask them something about that subject
They dont reply
Or they give you that sad excuse
Arent you tired of it yet?
Or are you still going to play the same old games
That excuse kept inviting you in
You kept using it 
hanging on to the excuse
Just to say they will change
But have they?
You cant see it
You havent noticed
You are still blind from there first excuse
Still letting them hurt you
Do they have an excuse for that too?

Morning Song

I have come to the tree green with leaves
Amidst the brash blustering of winter and thawing
The prophet once the old green decieves
But he did not hear else but cold crow cawing 
I am come to thronging of the voice
And the memory of years in shadows decayed
For there was no sunlight to rejoice
The heart, nothing bright for what we prayed

But there perched on a lectern like limb
On this gray day you find another voice to sing
The voice I thought I was dead, since dim
Light found you no where on your  sovereign and sweet wing
Hark how it sings from Abraham to King
Hark the passion pelting the prodigal of faith
And our weariness melting, we cling
To each word, loving the song and knowing its late.

O but sweet today, and not sweeter
Before, this is the sweetest song you ever sang
Nothing in it for our hereafter
Just the reminder that dawn can still come fire-strong
As we love our leaders to be. Wet
My hope again with dew and set my love to bloom
And for this song I too shall forget
The coming sunset everywhere, the harping doom.

Drifting Mainly

You belong to me mate 	 ( Intro )
And that be that!
Get on board
And grab your hat!

The ship was aghast at its new passenger	( Verse )
Like disdain for the lives that they now left behind,
Newcomers were scarce 
And they never would last
But I held up my chin nice and high.


The bloke who took me screamed	( Pre-chorus )
“Mop up the deck we’ve got things to do!” 
But I said sir, 
I’m just a boy and don’t know what’s to do.

And he said		( Chorus )
“Drifting mainly
Sailin the shores
Taking what’s mine 
And leaving what’s yours
Cause you know, we ain’t dead yet.”

Taking the seas for more than eight moons
We found islands and loot
That was bigger than most.
The taste of sea air 
With its wind in my hair
Took me away to this new life I lead.

After mopping the deck 
He grabbed my hand and screamed
 “Steer this ship boy!”
But I said sir,
I’m just a lad and don’t know where to go.

So the crew yelled	( Chorus )
“Drifting mainly
Sailin the shore
Taking what’s mine 
And leaving what’s yours
Cause you know, we ain’t dead yet.”

Surprising to me 
Was my unshaven face
The captain looked on 
And smiled with grace,
We stopped at a place 
Where the women were loose and didn’t mind
If we took a peak.

He said “Now you’re a man so let’s get on that boat,
We got places to be and some people to rope,
So grab that sword and drop that mop
Cause you’re no longer a boy in my eyes.”

I practiced the duel with the men in the crew
The captain took eye to my devilish pride,
And he took me aside and said 
 “Even in death I’m gonna miss you boy 
But don’t let it strike you 
Or kill your spirits
Cause even time can beat out the Grim.”

Then in the darkness came fire and screams,
Our vessel had stopped after fourteen years,
The crew fought hard and beat most of the men
But now, my Captain was dead.

We took the new ship watching ours sink deep
Saying goodbye to our drowning escape,
The crew turned towards me and asked
“What do we do?” and I smiled,
And they did to.

And we yelled    ( Chorus )
“Drifting mainly
Sailin the shores
Takin what’s mine
And leaving what’s yours
Cause you know, we ain’t dead yet.”

Turning Chaos Into Harmony

1.)  I’m mostly brain-dead nine to five,    
But suddenly I come alive
When I have an idea for a song.   	 
For me there is no greater boon
Than putting lyrics to a tune.		
I feel like a genius all day long.

2.)  Music sends you to foreign place:		
Around the world or outer space--
Russia, China, Africa or France.			
It can raise you up or take you down
With a major or a minor sound;		
Lull you to sleep or make you wanna dance.

3.)  Music is so fundamental,			
You might say its elemental.
It’s in our cultural identity.			
Babies can sing before they talk,
And like to dance before they walk.		
Seems it’s hardwired in our circuitry.

4.)  We proclaim our liberties 			
And reverence our dieties,
With our anthems and our sacred hymns.	
My hope for ‘eternal glory’
Is a catchy song that tells a story.		
For me that is like a priceless gem.

Chorus
The Nirvana in my universe:			
Composing clever rhymes and verse,
And putting them into a melody.		
Choosing a scale to fit the words
Helps me find the proper chords--		
Turning chaos into harmony.

Oh Baby you know I'm Hurting

Oh baby, you know I'm hurting
and you treat me so unkind!
Oh baby, you know I'm hurting
and you treat me so unkind!
Stop your hustling baby,
you making me want to cry!

I go down to Louisiana
and buy you a diamond ring,
I said I go down to Louisiana
and buy a big old diamond ring!
Yet, you still treat me so unkind!

Feeling like I'm going to die,
and you run off with another guy!
How could you treat me so, unkind?
See me baby, I am about to cry!

Oh baby you know I'm hurting
and you're nowhere in sight!
I said you know I'm hurting,
and you're nowhere in sight!
Stop that hustling baby girl,
'cause you know I'm about to cry!

There you go baby
running off with another guy,
stay out all night,
don't come home till dawn!
See me sleeping,
all alone and out of mind.

Don't make me cry baby,
don't you make me cry.
I said don't make me cry baby,
don't you make me cry!

I said baby
if you make me cry,
I swear I'm going to leave you alone.
See me go,
catch the first train out of town!
See you baby girl,
I'm going to leave, goodbye!

Goodbye baby
I wish you all the luck!
I said goodbye baby
I hope you the best of luck;
because you're going to need it,
because I'm not going to be around!

Strange She is

I felt her there
Seems so strange
Lost in memories
Hope maybe fading
By and By
The seas are changing
Seems so jaded


These clouds are greying
This place i be leaving
This life i be changing
Strange she seems to me


Love once there 
Gone for sure
No chance of feeling
Years have gone by
She can't haunt me no more


The clouds are clearing
This place i be leaving
This life i am changing
Strange she is to me


Memories i have
Smiles I'll enjoy
Won't see up close
Her heart is in something great


This sun is shining
This place I'll leave
Never will return
I let her be free
So i can be me
These clouds will not grey for us no more
She's all strange to me for sure

Angels Lullaby

Close your eyes and rest your little head,
Time has come for you to go to bed,
I will gently stroke your little cheek
Go to sleep; go to sleep.
Piglet and Pooh Bear under each arm,
For you know with them your safe from harm.
Restful sleep until the morning comes,
I will hum; I will hum.

Let’s ride your rocket over Saturn,
Come circle Jupiter and mars.
Venus; such a lovely planet,
See the Milky Way and all its stars.

See the lambs that you saw at the Zoo,
With your Piglet and your Pooh Bear too.
Ev’ry star you visit carve a notch,
I will watch; I will watch.
Time then for a quiet peaceful sleep,
Where the Angels your soul gently keeps,
Guarding there until the break of day.
I will pray; I will pray.

My Empty Spaces- Inspirational Lyrics, Link, and Personal Testimony

Why am I such a dusty window
For your light to shine through?
Why am I just a tiny star
In a sky already blue?
Why do I offer everything
With my heart closed like a fist?
I want to love You better than this

Why do I live like I'm in chains
When You have set me free?
And why do I have to break Your heart
Before I fall to my knees?
I know it's time to pray for change
Give all I have to give
I want to love You better than this

chorus:
So renew me 
Remake me
Undo me
Unbreak me
Come into the empty spaces
Of my broken places
And consume me
Complete me
Pursue me
Redeem me
Let Your Holy Spirit living through me
Renew me

I need You as my refuge
My first and last resort
Be the river always running
Through my deepest thoughts
Keep me in Your arms
'Cause even when I drift
I want to love You better than this

chorus:
So renew me 
Remake me
Undo me
Unbreak me
Come into the empty spaces
Of my broken places
And consume me
Complete me
Pursue me
Redeem me
Let Your Holy Spirit living through me
Renew me

My life bending to Your will 
Seeking You until I'm more and more like You

Since I can't blog, I just wanted to share this song that has been going on in my mind today...an endless loop. God is so good. I'm just so in awe of how patient He is with me. I wander, forget that early love for Him that consumed my life, disappoint, and yet....He doesn't give up on me. I was asked to speak to my church group tonight. Though that used to be the highlight of my life...lately...I went through my old messages...wanting to just...spout out something...but this morning...He opened up my mind. He opened up my mind and just POURED it all in. The whole talk...verses and everything! The title...The Forgotten Verses! I'm going to share about Poetry Soup...how there is a link for good community members who post and encourage other poets....and how as a body of believers, we need to be there for each other...meeting one another's physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual needs...with verses that support. My foundational verse is the one after that MUCH quoted verse of Apostle Paul: I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. WELL KNOWN, but the forgotten verse comes right after: Nevertheless, you have done well that you shared in my distress. (Philippians 4: 14) THAT is community. Sharing in the pain...bringing healing. My heart is full. Please, hear the song and be blessed. Pray for me tonight? Thanks!

our love

our love has come and gone
just like the freshly played melody of our song
though i cannot lie
i will sigh
to you i will say a final goodbye
our love has faded away
like a breeze on a hot summers day
our love has gone out of fashion
and its time to move on
because our love has come and gone
like the faded memory of our song
and with a sigh
to you i say a final good bye

RIPPLE IN THE WOOD GRAIN

 If my art did go, out into the sunlight
And my work, did show, with no use of light
Could you see my thoughts, within the wood grain
Would you hold it as dear, and want it for your own

Will you hand it down, in chains unbroken
Maybe they are best, left undone
Well I don't know, and I don't really care
I'll give my love, everywhere

Ripple in the wood grain 
And, I, just can't carve it right
Oh, Lord, what a sight

I'll reach out my hand, if your walls are empty
If your walls are full, put it somewhere else
Let it be known, that it is your problem
I'll make it for you, then your on your own

There is no end, to the projects, envisioned
I work through the day, and dead of night
I don't mind, it's all the same
The love is in mistakes, for which I am to blame

Ripple in the wood grain
And, I, just can't carve it right
Oh, Lord, what a sight

For those who know, it's an endless battle
You strive to achieve, perfection for your own
And if you do, then who is to notice
If you know what I see, then you shall take it home


-- Inspired the Grateful Dead song -RIPPLE- By Robert Hunter and Jerry Garcia.

She's Gone For The Day

      SHE'S GONE FOR THE DAY 
You could see the look in her eyes                  
why'd you look away too soon?
Now you realize           
that she's gone for the day
and before you could say something to her.

You could  read her life in her eyes
why'd you look away too soon?
Now you realize that she's gone for the day
and before you could say something to her.

Time how it flies! How it flies!      
She was gone, before you realized!

You could have the love in her eyes 
But you look away too soon
Then you realize that she's gone for the day
and before you could say something to her.

Time slips away, slips away.
She'll be gone before you think of anything to say.

You could have the love in her eyes 
But you look away too soon
Then you realize that she's gone for the day
and before you could say something to her.

Yeh she's gone for the day 
and before you could say something to her.

Magic Wonder Land

Magic Wonder land We're going for a ride on a white little cloud souring through the sky like we had wings. Just me and you with a birds eye view to a magic wonder land. We're going where reality brakes and fantasy comes true. Were castle grow as high as the sky and rainbows end in the palm of your hand. In that magic wonder land, so hang on tight and don't let go, or we lose the magic we both hold in that magic wonder land...

Bicycle Beds

Written February 26, 2013


Its all this new slang
Got them banging their heads
Against their bicycle beds
And the foolhardy pledge 
To ride tricycles instead

We are the kings and queens
Of the wonderful yard
Of the street corner dancers
And panhandling bards

A generation will rise
So duck and cover your eyes
We're building up through the night
No need to put up a fight

Godspeed to those approaching death
They won't get to see
What we've got coming next
You'll faint from holding your breath

This cold case is closed
No need to stay in repose
To dwell on precious regrets
That are laced with vellocet

Come Chill With Me Tonight

Verse 1:
Don't be shy,
I just wanna spend some time,
Make you mine,
Make it right,
Don't need to worry,
Girl, no one will ever compare,
To you,

Chorus:
Girl, The moon is close tonight,
Mother nature's on my side,
Let the clock move slow all night,
Come chill with me tonight,

I said the dj's on my side,
And he's playing our song all night,
We can dance all through the night,
Come chill with me tonight,

Verse 2:
Listen to the night,
Listen to the moving of the trees,
Their talking to me,
Controlling me,
They make me move,
As I watch the movement of the 
moon,

Chorus:
The moon is close tonight,
And it's shining on so bright,
And our love is worth the fight,
Come chill with me tonight,

Girl, the party's off tonight,
And their playing the disco right,
And the club won't be jumping 
tonight,
Come chill with me tonight,

I said the dj's on my side,
And he's playing our song all night,
We can dance all through the night,
Come chill with me tonight...

Stop Breaking My Heart

Take my hand

drag me in 

a world of beauty and wonder

make me feel

like I'm you're only girl

push me away

kiss a girl with a pretty face

and let me know we're through




So will you

stop breaking my heart?

If you love me

you wouldn't let me fall apart

baby please tell me

what we're doing

I gotta know

where it is you want me to go




you say you wanna stay friends

but you still love to take my breath away

every single day

I wait for the night Wehre i won't cry

eoshing you could change your mind

but when you do I wait for goodbye




so will you

stop breaking my heart?

If you love me 

you wouldn't let me fall apart

baby please tell me

what we're doing

I gotta know

where it is you want me to go

Hate

You shroud the truth with petty lies
A trait in you I must despise
What once was
Will never be again…

I trusted you too many times
My hate for you based on your crimes
If you died
I wouldn’t feel the pain…

Hate may be a strong word
But not strong enough for you
You broke me once
You broke me twice
And now I’m strong enough to say we’re through.

You disappoint at every turn
Hurt everyone with no concern
How you live
Is a mystery to me… 

I let you in with open arms
Better to resist your charms
Maybe then
I could have remained free…

Hate may be a strong word
But not strong enough for you
You broke me once
You broke me twice
And now I’m strong enough to say we’re through.

What's-Her-Name

I once used to be ‘hot’ for old What’s-Her-Name,
That girl that set my first fire aflame.
Just being near her would make my blood sizzle,
Then suddenly she was gone without even a fizzle.
 
I sadly regretted that old What’s-Her-Name,
And wondered what went wrong, who was to blame?
I got over her, then another, and another,
Then I found the one that I chose out from all others
 
I sometimes still think about old What’s-Her-Name—
Just passing thoughts without regrets or shame.
But if I dwelled on her, I would be most ungrateful
For the one that I love who’s always been faithful.
 
I found online my old What’s-Her-Name,
Though she was listed by his other name.
Maybe someday I’ll just send her an email,
To say I’m happy for her and to wish her well.
 
(Chorus)  We meet new people and change as we grow.
She whom I love now, back then I didn’t know.
Like waves crashing on a weathered seashore,
That which once was is now never more.

Grave Yard

Your eyes shut tight
Hearing a sound
Your heartbeat races
You can feel the little pieces 
Bleeding through
The hairs on your arms
Stand up
Closing your eye lids shut
Keeping them from opening
Reaching your hand over
To turn on the light
Once you do
You open your eyes
And nothing is there
Your heat beat dies down
And your back to feeling alone

Walking to the graveyard 
Going there as you
And leaving there as someone else
You can feel them all around you
Grasping unto you
And never letting go
Places parellel
You know its something paranormal

You decide not to stay
You feel yourself start to fade away
pretty soon everything
will be back where it belongs

The ghost grabbed unto your depression
And it slowly killed you
From the inside out
Now you are in the graveyard

End It

End It
By: IzaDonna

My demons crouch real low
Seeping out of me real slow
The pain protectively covered
Darkening memories like no other
But I hide behind a smile
This life not seeming worth while
The blade I have is ready to go
Life already being at an all time low
So bring on the darkness
i no longer have a purpose

Chorus
I push you away to protect you
My sickness n pain being nothing new
So save yourself from my sorrow
Cause I won't live to see tomorrow
You deserve someone better
So let me be and go find her

Loneliness is my own choice
Feeling so lost with no voice
So I let each day slip by
Everyday just wanting to die
What have I become
Where did all this pain come from
Being left alone is my desire
The spark going out in my fire
My days I feel are at an end
Too far gone to possibly mend

Chorus

So bring on the darkness
I've lost my purpose

Not Too Late

There's a ghost hiding in the past
there's a boy wishing it has last
all these secrets stop the seting sun
all the love has grown, but never said
and he wishes he could've told her what she meant
he wishes he could've said how he felt

But it's not too late
just open your heart
she hears every word you say
her guidance helps lead the way
forever's gone by too fast
but deep in our heart it will last
look into your soul and hear it ring
the beautiful song that she sings

There's an angel looking down
There's a boy without a frown
all this hope brings the rising sun
all thsi love we wish we had sent
he can feel she's in his heart
and will enver let him fall apart

"cause its not too late
just open your heart
she hears every word you say
her guidance helps lead the way
forever's gone by too fast
but deep in our heart it will last
look into your soul and hear it ring
the beautiful song that she sings

He remembers 
talking o nteh couch feeling safe
he remembers writing a poem and her saying its great
he remembers
how he cried wehn she didn't open her eyes
he remembers
fearing things he can't describe


"cause its not too late
just open your heart
she hears every word you say
her guidance helps lead the way
forever's gone by too fast
but deep in our heart it will last
look into your soul and hear it ring
the beautiful song that she sings

My Blue Bearry Song



                                                                I had a dolly
                                                         His name was Bearry
                                                              He was so lazy 
                                                             He ate so many
                                                        His cheek was chubby
                                                             I called him fatty
                                                        I loved my cute Bearry

                                                           Still with the Bearry
                                                              He cool already
                                                           In blue he's steady
                                                             He was so fancy
                                                            He wore on classy
                                                            He likes to boogie
                                                           He is my cool Bearry

Author's Note:
This is a song of "There Was a Pig"
Inspired by my student who always brings her blue teddy bear wherever she goes, and always tells stories as if it was alive. At that time she hummed the piggy song and I've got inspired to change the lyric become "My Blue Bearry Song" it's because the teddy bear named Bearry and its blue in colour.

The Day the Music Died

Whenever February brings 
a winter chill, 
I think about that song, and 
see you standing there 
on that beach,
white sand, blue water,
palm trees casting
shade, solitude, and
you swaying to the 
sound of the waves
with your pony tail flowing down 
blowing' in the wind.


Oh Oh Oh
that first hello,
your silent gestures,
and your wide eyes gazed
at me, and at that moment, 
everything changed, and 
I fell into you.


Sometime after that first hello, 
we were like children again, 
building castles, palaces, and
writing our
names in the sand, 
snapping pictures of each other, 
and watching that flimsy
paper and string drifting on the breeze.



When I hear that song,
I think about you,
I think about three stars falling
from the sky.
Strange
how a song 
sounds like a memory, 
like a recording
of a summer's day on that beach.

The day the music died, 


Like a beach-pea blossoming 
and binding the sand, 
our hearts were blossoming and
binding love.


Sometimes we'd shout,
sometimes we'd doubt, 
but we knew
true love ways,
and Oh Boy,
when we were together
all the world could see
we were good for each other.


When I hear that song,
I think about you, 
I think about three stars falling
from the sky.
Strange
how a song 
sounds like a memory, 
like a recording
of a summer's day on that beach.

The day the music died, 


At sunset, 
we would spread a blanket, 
unpack a basket, 
and lay back
for a picnic on the beach.

As the sky coaxed the mood 
from daylight to moonlight, 
in the still of the night
to angel of the morning
the silence of your
gestures and your smiles
attracted me
then you said stay,
And it was complete.

Strange how a song 
sounds like a memory.

Like a recording of a summer's day 
on that beach.

The day the music died.

The Day the music died.

Help

Help
An Original by IzaDonna

I didn't know you were gonna surrender
I didn't know you were a pretender
Out of the darkness you came
Never being the same
I watched you try to cope
I watched you give up hope
And now I'm gonna say
You shouldn't have changed your ways

Chorus
So as the day by
I watch you cry
Feeling so hopeless
I don't know what to do, to help you
But please don't give up
Lets try to pretend
Your still the same friend
And lets just start over
Cause I'm feelin this shield is your cover

The smile you once had is gone
What your doing is wrong
Please try to make amends
What happened to my friend?
I see the fear in your eyes
Wipe away your tears
Let me just help you
Cause I don't know what else to do

Chorus X2

Cause I'm feelin this shield is your cover

I'll Leave You My Tears

You said I could trust you with my smile,
but I should have asked to trust you with my tears.
You pulled me close yet you knew all the while
you couldn't keep and guard all my hopes and fears.
You wanted me on your lonely and gray days,
so you could run with me and laugh and joke and play,
but when the hard times came and I felt oh so sad,
you didn't try to understand, you didn't want to stay.

Love means to stand together strong
wrapped in the warmth we thought would be there all along,
but then I turned and reached and you had gone away
and crushed my world of trust forever on that day.

How can I ever - ever love again,
now that my smiles are gone to stay.
I'll leave you my tears ...
 
To go as lyrics with Michael Columbier's Emmanuel

Enslaved by Love

 I want you to hear my melody 
but i can't write
the right love song for you 
I want you to open up your heart to me
but i can't make the words make sweet love to you 

my heart is pouring out
my love is also real
I'm hoping now someday 
you can believe  
that with each and every breath 
I am breathing it , finely just for you 

now come take me as i am
love me in your timeless bliss 
open up your heart to me 
and love me as i am

there is no other 
and you will be my last 
this is our love song
this is our hearts 
beating fast 

so touch my heart 
and lay down your head 
I want you to hear my melody 
I want you to open up your heart to me  
this is the right love song for you and me

Blinded by the Speed of Life

I never took the time to speak my love
I never told him what I was thinking of
I never thanked him for all he had done
I never said I was proud to be his son

I was blinded by the speed of life
Now, on angel’s wings he’s taken flight
To have shared his world, I feel delight
I was blinded by the speed of life

I always waited for the perfect time
I always kept those thoughts inside my mind
I always choked on the words within his sight
I always said I would, in bed at night

But, 
I was blinded by the speed of life
Now, on angel’s wings he’s taken flight
To have shared his world, I feel delight
I was blinded by the speed of life

And, now it’s too late, I missed my chance
I wasn’t there for his final dance
He never heard me say what I had to say
Now, I miss my father, every day

I was blinded by the speed of life
Now, on angel’s wings he’s taken flight
To have shared his world, I feel delight
I was blinded by the speed of life

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..

I Am

I am sarcastic
A smart-ass
I do what I want
Yet I'm quiet
Self-spoken
But not at all blunt
I am determined
But lazy
Stubborn & mean
I am smart
And creative
With music,I'm a fiend
I'm a goofball
Observant
Yes I am weird
But still normal
But you know me
Let's get one thing clear
I'm no push-over
I don't quit 
Without a try
Yes words can hurt me
So you will see me cry
I am not what you think
Yes I do drink
Caring for none
I am honest and modest
I'm cool and so chill
I am all thee above
I am so very real

Let The Gypsy Fiddler Play

Let the Gypsy Fiddler play a haunting melody as we race blindly, through this life, toward what is meant to be. Let his fingers touch the strings, his arm, control the bow, as we seek love and happiness in a world that tells us, "No". So, play you Gypsy Fiddler! Play with all your heart! The echo of your melody gave this love its start. And when your song is over -- when you no longer play -- we'll have to pay the fiddler and go our separate way. The Gypsy Fiddler found us a little bit too late. But the way he played upon our hearts was destiny, or fate. He's in the final chorus now, he'll soon complete the song. Then we'll be called to live again in a world we don't belong. So, play you Gypsy Fiddler! Play with all your heart! The echo of your melody gave this love its start. And when your song is over -- when you no longer play -- we'll have to pay the fiddler and go our separate way.

Mask - Lyrics

So many people alive this age

                             So few are true today

Living their lives upon the stage

                             Acting out their foolish play

Some the mask of courage

          Still others mimic the mime

To better hide their hidden rage

          Their mask grows heavy in time

          Mask oh… Mask tell me

                             Why do you hide?

                   It must be awful lonely

                             Lonely on the other side…

                                      Please oh…please

                                                Won’t you come out to play

                                      I’d love to see your beauty

                                                Won’t you throw your mask away

Pain within… Peace without

          Eyes that smiles can’t hide

Why the fear… Why the doubt

          Senseless human pride

Mask oh… Mask tell me

                             What do you hide?

                   It must be awful scary

                             Scary on the other side…

                   Please oh…please

                                                Won’t you come out to stay

                                      God don’t make mistakes

                                                Don’t you hide yourself this way

Plaster mask lay shattered

          In pieces on the ground.

Many actors scattered

By the light my eyes have found

Mask oh… Mask tell me

                             Why did I hide?

                   Life is now worth living

                             living on the other side…

                                      Please oh…please

                                                Won’t you help me I pray

                                      To see and feel my beauty

                                                You know ….

                                                                   God made me this way

Beside you in time

Standing facing you
As you face me
The words fall out of your mouth
I see them float to my ears
I read them as they fly by me
Leaving me 
Just like you are
You turn to me
And you shot me
Telling me to dig the bullet
Out of my heart
I reach inside my heart
As it crumbles apart
Into a million pieces
As i try to pick up all the pieces
I realize some are missing
And were neverto be found
I see myself
Holding the bullet
As im standing next to you
Holding up a fake smile
Things havent changed
Because
We were meant to be
Even tho you left me
I will be standing 
Beside you in time

How Many Times

How many times does God forgive,
Again and again, please just live,
How many times, can you fall down,
Over and over, you’ll be found,
How many times will I just pray,
For all your pain to go away,

For you were once my dearest friend,
In my heart your presence ends.

How many days go quickly bye,
How many birds sing when they cry,
How many cherubs fight for you,
How many angels dance the blues,

How many demons tried to take,
How many stripes for our mistakes,
How many times could I confess,
I never loved you any less
I never loved you any less.


How many times does God forgive,
Again and again, please just live,
How many times, can you fall down
Over and over, you’ll be found’
how many times will I just pray,
for all your pain to go away,

For you were once my dearest friend,
In my heart your presence ends.

LET'S GO SEE

Let's go see
This maybe all we need
Roads wide open
Hearts a racing
This time is now
This dream worth chasing


I hold you close 
You guide my eyes
You made up my heart
Time to let me be


Seems so yesterday
Those wonder years
This place was all I needed
But something lead me astray
Caught in a moment
No chance of changing
Won't rethink all that has happened


I hold you near
You make up my soul
Life is about reliving

I can't take that anger away
I can't make you see
All i will do is make you believe


Let us go see
What is in store
Shed no tears
Because your baby I'll always be


Hold me close and you shall see
How proud i will make you be
Let's just go see how your love will grow

Bruises

Bruises
By: IzaDonna

Surrounded by darkness
Emotions hidden away
Bruises disguised with smiles
Never would think it
That my past still haunts me
The scars still completely cover me
I hide them so you can't see
I'm really not at all okay

Chorus
The bottles eases the pain
The dust numbs the ache
Can I ever just forgive?
Instead up building up this hate
I just want to find peace
I want my smile to be real
But its hard to do so
When I can no longer seem to feel

Frightening dreams keep me awake
Forever replaying in my mind
Life seems to be so much longer
This winding road so much harder
Can I just get a release
Beat these inner demons and be free
Or do I have to be forever cursed
With the ghosts of the past

Chorus

I look up at the stars
And close my eyes tight
Its time for last good-byes
Its time to end this tonight
I take one last chug
And fall to the ground
Take one last gasp
And then no longer make a sound

Chorus

I'm finally okay

Making Up for My Mistakes

Writing this cuz theres nothing left for me to do,
I hope you know im trying to make up for all of my mistakes,
Im trying to make up for all the promises i have broke.
Im sorry for ever trying to see if we would work,
Im trying to tell you that i will leave you be if you want me to,
But know their is nothing that i would ever put above you.
Im making up for all of my mistakes, 
Im trying to prove that im not the person you saw,
its never too late to show you the real me, the person you never knew.
I dont deserve to tell you i love you.
Ive done too much to you,
Im sorry for everything.
Im going to sing this song to you,
One last time,
And i hope you will understand.
Im making up for all of my mistakes,
Im trying to prove that im not the person you knew,
Its never too late for me to show you the real me, the person you never knew.
I know their is nothing that i can do to make you change your mind,
But i hope this song at least helps a little,
Im trying to make up for my mistakes,
Im trying to make up for all the promises i broke.
Im sorry for trying to see if we would ever work
I cant tell you i love you
I just hope you know,
That ill never put anything above you,
And im trying to make up for all my mistakes.

I Like

 I Like

I like all the little things yo do,
And 
I like when you hold me tight 
too,
Most of all when it's just us two,
Me for you, that's true 
You for me,
A destiny meant to be,
In harmony,
Like sand and sea!
We join souls
Flowing freely
With endless amounts of possibilities,
Endless amounts of love you giving me!

I like when you hold me tight and you love me right,

I like when you light up my night and make me fell right

Lady you make me feel right,
Maybe you can listen to me
Recite,
Sweet melodies 
Under the Moon light,
Full of zen and delight,
We'll be shining bright,
Just tell me what you like?
So I can excite your insight
All night!
It will be such a wonderful 
Sight,
When our bodies reunite
And Ignite
Like dynamite! 


I like when you hold me tight and you love me right,

I like when you light up my night and make me fell right

Invisible

Tied to a life, encumbered by invisible chains:          
Commitments and responsibility,
Obligations to colleagues and family,                          
Conformity to society’s morality,
And everything else that constrains.

Alone in a crowd,  surrounded by invisible bars.        
Nothing to say—nobody wants to hear.
Already been there, might just as well stop here.    
Had enough of arguments, conflicts, strifes, and wars
And everything else that leaves scars.

Is there a reflection when I look in the glass?                  
Are there footprints when I walk on the grass?
When I pass a light is there a shadow on the wall?       
Does my life leave a trace or am I invisible?

Did I turn left, when I should have taken a right?         
I’m on a road that I don’t want to drive.
Is this all there is, just trying to survive?	                     
 I’m in the dark and feel like I’m buried alive,
And barely remember the light.

Was there a reflection when I looked in the glass?     
Were there footprints where I walked on the grass?
When I passed a light, was there a shadow on the wall?       
Did my life leave a trace or was I invisible?

satin pillow fever

it's kind of funny 
how time walks away
i don't feel like 
saying grace today
everything hurts 
much more then they say
tuesdays no longer 
remember your smile
scars are the souvenirs 
of the loneliest child
the memory itself 
writes you away

i don't wanna be here anymore
my hearts felt the dust
no i don't wanna be here anymore
sail on sooth sayer, sail

it's like sometimes you can't win
but then again i feel like 
i could never really fail
through the mirror 
i image an image pale
restricted for commerce
like a prostitute 
trying to make the proper sell
here we are behold unearthed
true to the soul, 
spirit, body and mind
it's kind of crazy
how you can capture more momentum
starting up from the bottom
being beaten and coming up 
from the land down under
may the perpetrators be kissed briefly
slaughtered later
love letters from a bastard 
to kind of a raped mother
grab the extinction cord
i already duck taped the other
the youngest of nine children
last man standing
out in the wonderland withering
see the ocean set apart from the sea
relax the your head darling 
and come hither

i don't wanna be here anymore
my hearts felt the dust
no i don't wanna be here anymore
sail on sooth sayer, sail

she said
i don't understand 
your goodbye
questions, 
all these questions
why, why, oh why
I told her i said,
every thing's rhetorical
despite you and I

stars burn
in the sleepless sky
as the candles dim
and night falls alive
between you and I
and it shines so bright
that i can't see a thing
but sometimes
i see it all

i've been used 
to losing touch
but i'm kind of wish 
too far gone
a shooting star
one miracle away 
from being
exactly who you are
the rain dabbles
in the face of the sun
and sometimes life
is all heat and no fun

but sometimes
you have to say goodbye
to where you're coming from
and kindly walk away
to a better day

and just like that
she went into the dark
she sang out, 
i got seizures to spark
and true life
it's some kind of bizarre
she put the needle in her arm
and sang out
never mind who you are
never mind who your are
I don't give a Fck who you are

Grass Was High

The grass was high, as were the weeds,

But on TV so were race-car speeds

I watched the turns - watched the spins

(My driver added to his wins!) … so …



Wife cut the grass.



A screen-door hinge was all a-skew

Gosh-darned thing had rusted through

But winnin’ down at Bowl-A-Lot

Was somethin’ at which I had a shot … so …



Wife fixed the hinge



Went ice-fishin’ – in my NEW truck,

With my pals, Ted and Buck … but

Kitchen sinks’ pipes were froze …

But, they’d thaw-out I supposed … so …



Wife fixed the pipes



Amy Beth – my wife’s sis

Sure “fills-out” her bodice

So she and I took a drive

(Showed her how I “skin” dive!) … and …



Wife said nuthin’



When I came home from work today

Wife weren’t here – she’d gone away

Why she’s gone – I got no clue

Guess I spoiled ‘er through ‘n through



Lawyer’s gonna hurt me

In The Way

Here I be
Fighting me
Dodging right hooks
Crossing my dreams

Here you stand 
Straight right in the way
Why do you stay
I was ready to cave
I was willing to fall
Our walls were to strong


Something made us turn
Someone guided us home
Now i lie torn
So unsure of our now
So afraid of tomorrow

And yet you stand tall
You say you won't stop me from loving you
You won't blind me from seeing 
There is more beauty then you are showing


I can't push you away
Can't force you to believe i am not worth having
But you stand true right there in my way
Forgetting the hurt i have caused


Always there in the way 
This love you share with me
Will always be my way to live

Hued blues

Well well well, my cadenced fellow
shinin' disposition all sunny yellow
hued think, I'd be in the pink
but I can't see nothin' but the blues

I'm feelin' down, a bit odd 'n' strange
can't wrap my tastes around juicy orange
penchant you'd think, would be in the pink
but I can't taste nothin' but the blues

Flush filled up my new pockets all green
runnin' on sugar 'n' coffee's caffeine
you'd think, I'd savor flavors craved pink
but I can't palette nothin' but the blues

Feelin' a bit annoyed an' seein' light red
slowly tradin' 'live feelin' for feelin' dead
you'd think, I'd be bright in the pink
but I can't picture nothin' but them blues

Now desolate, can't control my disconsolate
I'm royally sullen, maybe violably violet
I'd be in the pink, hued think
still, I can't be nothin' but blue

The Temptress

Lyin asleep
Coldness in her eyes
There’s trouble down the line
Taking all your worth
You called me a playboy
Strictly judging me,
Your scarring, won’t hurt 
A justified reprieve

Sinning in a world
Where evil sways you with delight
A weakness you can’t overthrow
The temptress never dies 

This grueling thorn
Digs deep inside of me
It burns in you to
Why can’t we be free?
You don’t even know me
Yet I’m crucified by your eyes,
My heart’s filled with lusting
But yours it holds only lies.

Things being rough
That’s just the way it is
Just keep the faith
All yah need is one good kiss

LETTER TO SANTA

He sat up late one night and wrote,
His heartfelt Christmas dream.
Dear Santa, I wont ask for much.
His eyes began to gleam.
I've got a baseball and a glove,
A rocket and launching pad.
I've got so many things to share,
But, I haven't got my dad.
He left us not to long ago.
He didn't even pack.
He went to heaven, Mommy said.
But, now I want him back.

I miss my Daddy.
I miss the way he holds my hand.
I miss my Daddy.
And I don't really understand.
I miss my Daddy.
I know he must be missing me.
If you can find him, Santa.
Please, put him underneath the Christmas tree.

He always hugs me when he leaves.
He always says goodbye.
I hope he wasn't mad at me.
It makes me want to cry.
It's not the same without him here.
Why did he go away?
My Mommy's eyes are always red.
She won't come out and play.
Dear Santa, I just want one thing.
The love that I once had.
I'll give you everything I own,
If you'll bring me my Dad.

I miss my Daddy.
I miss the way he holds my hand.
I miss my Daddy.
And I don't really understand.
I miss my Daddy.
I know he must be missing me.
If you can find him, Santa.
Please, put him underneath the Christmas tree.

I hope it's not to much to ask.
I hope I've made it clear.
My Mommy misses Daddy, too,
And wishes he were here.
If you can't bring him back to me,
I hope I'll understand.
You've always done your best, I know,
To make my Christmas grand.

I miss my Daddy.
I miss him every single day.
I miss my Daddy.
OH Santa. Why'd he go away?
I miss my Daddy.
I know he must be missing me.
Please! Find my Daddy, Santa.
And put him underneath the Christmas tree.

Golden Girls Tribute

"Thank you for being a friend", that's how it goes.
Blanche will fly whichever way the wind blows.
"Traveled down the road and back again", is what they sing.
Rose waits for a light bulb, clueless to everything.
"Your heart is true, you're a pal and a confidante", goes the next line.
Sophia shares her sarcastic wisdom, making rose trick a mime.
"And if you threw a party, invited everyone you knew", as the song plays.
Here comes Dorothy, intelligent and bossy, so set in her ways.
"you would see, the biggest gift would be from me" It's almost done.
The Golden girls bring so much fun.
"And the card attached would say" as the show portrays,
"Thank you for being a friend".
Sophia, Dorothy, Blanche and Rose,
for eachother, a helping hand to lend.
The show possesses what the song does imply.
The women"s friendship a binding tie.
 A tribute to them as the legend lives,
Their warmth and caring continues to give.

Blow More Bubbles

When you’re feeling bored and blue, ‘cause there’s nothing fun to do,
Just dip in your bubble wand, and blow a bubble big and round.
There’s no fun that can compare, to blowing bubbles in the air.     

See how big your bubble grows, before it pops right on your nose.     
Blowing bubbles is so fun, inside or out in the sun.
Big kids, small kids, we don’t care.  Just blow bubbles in the air.  

Puff, puff, puff.  Chase some bubbles.   Puff...  Pop your troubles.
Puff...  Make some doubles.    Puff...  Blow more bubbles.

Of all the things that are so fun, blowing bubbles is number one!
Blowing bubbles can’t go wrong, so come on parents sing along.
All these bubbles, we should share, so let’s blow bubbles everywhere!

Puff, puff, puff.  Chase some bubbles.   Puff...  Pop your troubles.
Puff...  Make some doubles.    Puff...  Blow more bubbles.

Dip back in your bubble wand, and blow more bubbles all around.
You’ll be happy as can be, blowing bubbles just like me.
Everybody everywhere, keep blowing bubbles in the air.

Puff, puff, puff.  Chase some bubbles.   Puff...  Pop your troubles.
Puff...  Make some doubles.    Puff...  Blow more bubbles.

Sorry, ‘stoners’, you are wrong.  This is not about your bong.
Chasing bubbles and running free is healthier than THC!
Everybody everywhere, keep blowing bubbles in the air.

Puff, puff, puff.  Chase some bubbles.   Puff...  Pop your troubles.
Puff...  Make some doubles.    Puff...  Blow more bubbles.

clocks that picture time

these days you barely see
the colors of people as they are 
tomorrow looms 
in places that i can't be

still i wonder will it all fall down 

these days you're either right or wrong
sit back on ease and find rhythm to a song
running on e and i'm almost there
thinking maybe we'll make it
hell, we're almost there

still i wonder will it all fall down

these days it's you or me 
i can picture 
the things you're left to say
winters calling 
and the darkness is sinking this day

still i wonder will it all fall down

these days you're either right or wrong 
calling forgiveness it's either you or me 
tomorrow turns in places that i can't be 
the color's of people you barely see 

"maybe i'll see you when you get there"

Gonna Chase Those Blues Away, To the tune 'Shotgun Blues'

I got worries on my mind,
And the blues weigh down my soul,
I got worries on my mind,
And the blues weigh down my soul,
Gonna chase those blues away,
Try to make myself feel whole.


Gonna forget my troubles
And hold my head high
Shrug off my demons,
The Lord knows that I’ll try,
The blues is heavy,
And it’s weighing down my soul,
I'm gonna count all my blessings,
‘Til they overflow my bowl.


I got my friends,
I know love without end, 
My babe, he stands by me,
And on that I depend,
The blues is heavy,
And it’s weighing down my soul,
But when life feels harder, 
I know I’m still in control.


Well I tried lightnin' up
When the blues pulls me down
Tried lightning up
When the blues pulls me down
It’s hard to feel blue,
When good things are all around!

Oriental Dancer

I still remember
First time I saw her
Advancing alone
From out of the gloom
Dark eyes like embers
Glowing like fires
Behind veils hidden
In tribal costume

Music pulsating
Waist undulating
Backwards and forwards
She’s no commoner.
Hip belts girating
Gold coins cascading
Arms raising upwards
Trailing gossamer

Her bedlah whirling
Under-skirts swirling
Endlessly teasing
The room full of men
Gracefully twirling
Her veils unfurling
Slowly revealing
Then hiding again

(Chorus)
Oriental dancer
Sultriest entrancer
Fanning the fires of all men who would stay
In longing we suffer
Nothing that we offer
Will ever prevent you from dancing away

Exist in Dreams

A dream that dances in waves, and mirrors all you do
So you dance, and hope that some day the song will come from you
This dream is all that exists, and all you’ve ever known
The song is picking up speed, so it’s follow or fail alone

A flame that flickers in sync with the shadows by your side
The rain puts out the light, and causes you to hide
This nightmare is all that exists, and all you’ve ever known
But this song still hasn’t stopped, and so you dance alone

You cherish sand on the banks of a path winding through a storm
This desert trail is all that you see; too blinding to look beyond
This path is all that exists, and the only way to go
Holding close the sand as you sing, just so you’re not alone

The sand is part of the storm that makes you close your eyes
But now the wind starts to slow, and the scenery makes you cry
This life is all that exists, and the only way to go
The sand falls through your hands, and you carry on alone

A love that blooms into being beneath the darkest skies
Is a life that will venture out despite the lonely nights
So scared, but so unafraid to find what you need to be
Despite the fear that prevails, and tells you what to see

The flames steady and still, and a shadow kneeling down
The rain cleansing your heart as all your fears drown
The sand creating a path, and shielding you from pain
And now, with the wind at your back, you remember why you came

To dream a light shining out for all the world to see
To be more than you think, and beyond all that will be
To create a desire to be the creators of our dreams
To become the mirror of self, and reflect our unity

Crowd in the cloud

unknown people all day around
all living in a poetical compound
days and nights never exist
while word-smiting with a twist
typing and typecasting
aiming for something everlasting
freed poets without publishers
dreaming of their printing Gullivers

a world wide writing group
called a bowl of poetry-soup
a world I really like to be
it means the world to me
writing poems in the cloud
poetry-folks unite in that crowd

poets share laughter and tears
talk about their bears and fears
it's such a good place to be
take a look and you'll see
it's crowded in this cloud
but all can be very proud
there's  room for more
and always  an open door

a world wide writing group
called a bowl of poetry-soup
a world I really like to be
it means the world to me
writing poems in the cloud
poetry-folks unite in that crowd

I found a place to stay
available night and day
I've really found my way 
sharing my poetical bouquet
I have my daily bowl of Soup
I am part of this great group
friends are always around
together gaining solid ground

a world wide writing group
called a bowl of poetry-soup
a world I really like to be
it means the world to me
writing poems in a cloud
poetry-folks unite in that crowd

poets share laughter and tears
talk about their bears and fears
it's such a good place to be
take a look and you'll see
it's crowded in this cloud
but all can be very proud
there's  room for more
and always  an open door

friendly people all day around
all living in a poetical compound
days and nights never exist
while word-smiting with a twist

a world wide writing group
called a bowl of poetry-soup
a world I really like to be
it means the world to me
writing poems in the cloud
poetry-folks unite in that crowd

Scouters

Give them clear mountain lakes,   
And kid-friendly swimming holes,	
Rafts, rowboats, and canoes;        
Dads and sons with fishing poles.
Give them clear night skies,          
Filled with just enough moonlight	
To find shadowy paths--                 
Navigating by starlight.	

Give them old patch jackets          
To remind them of their tales:	
Camporees, jamborees,                 
And famous historic trails	
Give them some traditions            
From American folklore;	
Ashes saved from campfires,        
To teach them who went before.	

Give them Boy Scout handbooks,    
Lengths of rope with knots to tie,   
Multi-tool pocket knives,                
And young Scouts wanting to try.
Give them trails to follow,             
Maps and compasses to read.	
Stories around a fire, 	              
Patrols of Boy Scouts to lead.	

All Scouts want is just a chance        
To watch wildlife and touch native plants,
Go snipe hunting and backpacking,   
And earn merit badges for everything.
All Scouts want is just somewhere   
To swim and hike and breathe fresh air,
And to cook and laugh around a campfire.  
There’s just not much more for a Scout to desire.

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..

Pushing People

The days are blending
It's like I'm living a dream
The sun is shining
But not a single bird screams
The nights are longer
It's like they're part of my day
A little darker
Else I think I will stay

Sometimes people tell me that I'm a little too shy
Sometimes I think I need them if i'll ever get by
Too often I am searching for a friend in the dark
Another pair of hands that can brighten my spark

But they're not coming
It's like I push them away
Yet I'm not caring
I still smile each day
And every heartbeat
Escalates my good mood
These people dancing
Right now they don't seem so crude

Sometimes mother tells me I'm a little too soft
Sometimes father tells me I don't  act very oft
But mostly I am thinking I just need a new song
Something sweet and bouncy that'll move me along

So now it's singing
At the top of our lungs
With each new ringing
We create with our tongues
I don't care now
I just need to be me
No matter how long
I can wait patiently

Too often I am searching for a friend in the dark
Another pair of hands that can brighten my spark
Now that I've found them I'm a little insane
It seems a little weird to have them calling my name

Son Of A Gun

I was born half human half demon
Killer of love
I was born with a gun in my hand
The Son of a gun
Satan Worshiper
A Natural Born Killer

I walk down the hallway
Hiding my gun in my trench coat
Wearing my hat backwards
My combat boots
And my army pants
Sunglasses hiding my face

I wait for you in the Library
As i approach you
You run and hide
Under a table
Me taking my gun out of my trench coat
Holding it towards your face
You cry
Your freaking out

Your last tear hits the floor
I pull the trigger
You were the guy
That made fun of me
Calling me a freak
Tripping me in the hallway

Remember throwing bloody tampons
In my face?
Calling me gay?
Telling everyone about my personal pains?
Ive got you now
You cant hurt me anymore
But i can still hurt you

DIGGING INTO THE BEATLES' MIND

How much sorrow can you take,
when all you think of is true joy?
Very lonely but not hopeless
until another sunrise comes...
you will be wishing, wide-awake,
for the sweet lips of that young boy!


O lonely girl listening to music and imagining love,
you shouldn't get wings and turn into a dove,
because boys don't believe in keeping promises...
they find another foolish girl somewhere else!
O lonely girl barely fourteen refrain from desire,
that desire that can only end up in dire!


It's okay to dream as teens do to vent their rage,  
it's fine to have a fantasy and wait for the phone to ring;  
and it's quite normal to think of boys at this age,
but be warned of the first heartbreak from a tender wink,
it may lead to something you are not ready for,
so keep on dreaming and shut that darn door!


Towards midnight you hear his voice again and feel fine,
it must be one of those dreams when he says, " Little doll,
you are the prettiest one among others so slim and tall!"
And he goes on, " I made you a promise you'll be all mine!"
Oh, dreamer so innocent: a pillow case is all you hold,
he's not yours by any means...he's a teaser and way too old!  
 

Your silly head is listening to the song he wrote,
a lovely love song he sent to your cellphone,
falling in love is not learned from a romance book:
words mislead and confuse the ones who are alone;
you may love him dearly, but all he does is using you for his own delight... 
he may love you, but he'll sing his song to someone who's not too bright.       


Inspired by the following songs:

Across The Universe
Lady Madonna
Lucille
Lonely Rita
Blackbird
Northern Song

I'll Be

Drip Drip tears fall down
Big splash and yet no sound
through my smile you saw my pain
didn't think no one could hear them 
the screams through the laughter
but then you came
won't forget what you said

You said I'll be there for you when you cry
I'll be the one to show your true smile
I'll be there to block the pain
I'll be there to scare your fears
and dry away all those tears
I'll be there day after day 
you know I'll be 
I'll be
your hero here to stay 

Bye bye there they go
so long cuase no one knows
that when they walk away
I have to face the day
with no one to help me through
that was until I met you

 And you said I'll be there for you when you cry
I'll be the one to show your true smile
I'll be there to block the pain
I'll be there to scare your fears
and dry away all those tears
I'll be there day after day 
you know I'll be 
I'll be
your hero here to stay

And after all the pain
after all the tears I have cried
I'm not scared to face the day
'cause I eknow you're by my side
because

you are there for me when I cry
you are the one to show my true smile
you were there to block the pain
you are there to scare my fears
and dry away all my tears
you're there for me day after day
you know you are
yeah you are
my hero here to stay

Drum Beat

Boom boom tap.
Boom boom tap.
Boom boom tap.
Holy. Freaking. Crap.

Here come the snare drums,
With the bass drums,
And the cymbals,
The band follows.

I have a secret.
Everyone knows it.
And I don't know about,
If I can contain this shout.

And I don't know,
If I can take it anymore.

I got that drum beat.
Not just in my feet,
But in my heart.
But it's just too hard.
This girl's got her drum beat.
She can take the heat.
But when it comes to love,
She's... Down to drugs.
But not those kind where,
You can feel fear.
It's already there.

Tap tap tap.
Boom-de-tap-tap.
The marching band's coming.
You better start moving.

They don't stop.
All of them just stomp- stomp- stooooomp.


I got that drum beat.
Not just in my feet,
But in my heart.
But it's just too hard.
This girl's got her drum beat.
She can take the heat.
But when it comes to love,
She's... Down to drugs.
But not those kind where,
You can feel fear.
It's already there.

This song probably makes,
No sense.
But there's really no,
Deep meaning.

These are the facts...
Literally everyone goes,
Crap, crap, crap.

I got that drum beat.
Not just in my feet,
But in my heart.
But it's just too hard.
This girl's got her drum beat.
She can take the heat.
But when it comes to love,
She's... Down to drugs.
But not those kind where,
You can feel fear.
It's already there.

Zoom zoom zoom.
Zoom te zoom zoom.
My heart goes boom boom.
But you just see it through.
Like it's a clear,
Drum beat.

They've Written All My Songs

Every song like ‘Secret Love’ Or ‘Gentle On My Mind’ Say the things meant just for you In words I could not find. I’ve tried so hard to say just how Two rights are never wrong. But, every time, I always find They’ve written all my songs. I tried so many times to put it into rhymes. I want, so much, to tell the world just where my heart belongs. But, the words just pass me by – So, I sit and wonder why – With all the love I feel for you – They’ve written all my songs. Maybe love was never meant to seek us out and find a place that we can call our own and leave the world behind. My words can never say the things that you’ve known all along. So, my heart just cries when I realize They’ve written all my songs. I tried so many times to put it into rhymes. I want, so much, to tell the world just where my heart belongs. But, the words just pass me by – So, I sit and wonder why – With all the love I feel for you – They’ve written all my songs.

Visions of the Night

Good dreams, sweet dreams
Visions filled with wonder—
Flowing gently,
While we deeply slumber;
They take us far away
While we take rest from the day,
So make sure you close your eyes
And close them tight;
So you can see the visions of the night.

Moonlight, soft light,
Glowing through the windows,
Shadows dancing 
Softly on their tiptoes—
They pass the night away
In a nocturnal ballet
While the stars shine in a blazing silver-white;
How beautiful, these visions of the night!

Should we long for the coming of the setting sun,
Simply because it heralds the day's end;
Is it wrong if we want the moon to rise—
Just so that, we can stop and close our eyes?

Owls hooting, counting off the minutes,
Crickets chirping, mini violinists;
They set music for the stage
As the world turns a new page
And the lonely moon observes from her great height;
She's watching all these visions of the night.

the Devils Throne

  woke up this morning..found a hole in my back yard Babe.
  said ..woke up this morning baby , found a hole in the high trees of my back yard.
  Guess the Devil found his way in , leaving nothing but bloody wings on a broken dove. 

  He came in so shiny and new babe..Armani suit and tie ..high on cocaine, 
  bloody stained eyes from a fresh kill babe , leaving me lifeless and blue Darling
  High on foolish pride..oh Lord  he was living large.

  why did ya come hunting here Devil ? you know I have nothing left inside.
  I said ..Oh Lord why did you come hunting here Devil , I hve nothing left inside.  
  Took my purse, my guitar , and left me no dignity at all inside.

  Can't ya hear me singing lord..leave that man alone
  Oh can't ya hear me singing Bonnie Rait babe, my Daddy said , leave that man alone.
  he ain't nothing but a thing baby ..sitting high on the Devil's Throne. "

  Don't ya take my song baby , or the devil he' s coming for you.
  Lord, don't ya take my song and make it yours baby , or that Devil he's coming for you.
  leaving you soulless, empty and blue, that Devil..he'll be laughing at you.

Wind

Future is holding. Nature is calling. Dreaming of falling, Let the wind blow through your hair. Flowers are blooming, It's very roomy, When you're around. Let the wind blow through your hair. When a slow song plays, In an empty parade. All the lights shine bright, When you're in my sight. Slow motion walking, I hear you talking. I hear you walking. The wind will get to you, If you are not prepared. Your hair flows into place, When you look at her face. Did I even have a chance? Can you give me just one dance? Looking at your profile, Because I'm in denile. I look at the light, During a low tide... When a slow song plays, In an empty parade. All the lights shine bright, When you're in my sight. Slow motion walking, I hear you talking. I hear you walking. The wind will get to you, If you are not prepared. Making dreams come true, Did you even get the clue? It's not so new, That I'm in love with you.

THIS MUCH I PROMISE YOU

     THIS MUCH I PROMISE YOU
I know too well, we have to see
Some times in life that shouldn't be.
But through it all, in all I do,
Everything I ever do, I'll always do it for you.

Our song may not tell everything
About the hurt that time can bring.
But through each pain we're going through,
Every song I ever sing, I'll always sing it for you..

This much I promise you.
I'll always have this love for you.
Every day in every way
This much--this much I promise you.

This much I promise you.
I'll always share this love with you.
Every day in every way
This much--this much I promise you.

Sometimes we go without a prayer
Because we just don't see one there.
But God is there, in all we do.
Everytime I ever pray, I'll pray a little for you.

I know sometimes we have to cry.
Because of love, I don't know why.
But through each tear I'm going through
Every time I ever cry, I'll cry a little for you. 

Everything I ever do, I'll always do it for you.
Everything I ever do, I'll always do it for you.
 This much I promise you.

Unnamed

Plugs you into my world
Turns my eyes 
Looking into my skull
Staring at my brain
Hoping to see what comes next
Takes my heart and rips it out
Dying alittle more
Shoots my gut 
And places my brain where my gut once lived
Takes my fingers and pushes them into my hand
So i just have nubs
Takes my head and crushes it
Little peices falling
Bleeding unto the ground
Dying alittle more
The unnamed feeling
Comes alive
Then it takes me away
Taking the chill off my life

Deep Into The Night

Deep into the night my mind is at ease 
Yet my heart stays restless. 
I lay and I look up at the ceiling 
And I ponder what my heart may desire. 
With every beat and blood flow thru, 
It releases a heartbreak or maybe even 
two.

These memories I replay over and over,
Time after time,
It’s always something 
That makes me smile.
I loved them and lost them. 
NO! They lost me.
I have no regrets because
They helped me find me. 


Deep into the night my mind is at ease 
Yet my heart stays restless. 
I lay and I look up at the ceiling 
And I ponder what my heart may desire. 
With every beat and blood flow thru,
 It releases a heartbreak or maybe even 
two.

I walk to my window
And I stare out to the moon
I daydream and my dreams
Soon become a reality
If only for just a moment.
Time slows
As I fantasize.
I’m too old for the fairytales
But yet I still believe.
My heart believes dreams do come true.

Deep into the night my mind is at ease 
Yet my heart stays restless. 
I lay and I look up at the ceiling 
And I ponder what my heart may desire. 
With every beat and blood flow thru,
 It releases a heartbreak or maybe even 
two

My yesterdays formed my todays
And my todays
Will shape my tomorrows.
No regrets and no looking back. 
I pulled thru 
And am stronger than before.
More respect 
And self-love,
More picking myself up 
And more positivity,
More laughter
And more joy,
No more sorrow
And lots more happiness.
My goals are aimed
And I’m my only target.

Deep into the night my mind is at ease 
Yet my heart stays restless. 
I lay and I look up at the ceiling 
And I ponder what my heart may desire. 
With every beat and blood flow thru,
 It releases a heartbreak or maybe even 
two

Geared 
And ready
For whatever may come.
Heavily guarded,
Steel walls all up.
As I lay 
And look up at the ceiling
And I ponder what my heart may desire.
With every beat and blood flow thru,
It releases a heartbreak or maybe even 
two.
Deep into the night my mind is at ease 
Yet my heart stays restless.

Deep into the night my mind is at ease 
Yet my heart stays restless. 
I lay and I look up at the ceiling 
And I ponder what my heart may desire. 
With every beat and blood flow thru,
 It releases a heartbreak or maybe even 
two

Lyrics Of A Song - 1

* 

When the lyrics of a song read like poetry,
it is those songwrittes who do most truely impress me.

*

Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow

Tonight you're mine completely.
You give your love so sweetly.
Tonight the light of love is in your eyes,
but will you still love me tomorrow?
Is this a lasting treasure
or just a moment's pleasure?
Can I believe the magic of your sigh?
Will you still love me tomorrow?
Tonight with words unspoken
you'll say that I'm the only one,
but will my heart be broken
when the night meets the morning sun?
I need to know that your love
is love I can be sure of,
so tell me now and I won't ask again.
Will you still love me tomorrow?

*

- Carole King

It's Just A Song

You hear the sound of the song.
It's coming on real strong.
It gives you a sense of strength.
it filters through the air.
It lifts you off the ground.
We hear from town to town.

It's just a song-sung-long.
A sing-a-long-song-sung.
It's just a song.
it's just a song.
A sing-a-long-song-sung.
It's just a song.

It takes you out in space.
Closer to second base.
It follows through so cool.
The smoothest thing for you.
A sound that sounds so clear.
A sound you'll want to hear.

It's just a song-sung-long.
A sing-a-long-song-sung.
It's just a song.
It's just a song.
It's just a-song-sung-long.
A sing-a-long-song-sung.
It's just a song.

It sends you through the air.
A sound that makes you high.
It makes you feel so good.
A sound that always should.
Just lifts you off the ground.
We hear from town to town.

It's just a-song-sung-long.
A sing-a-long-song-sung.
It's just a song.
It's just a song.
It's just a-song-sung-long.
A sing-a-long-song-sung.
It's just a song.
it's just a song..

Beyond What's Seen

You do not know what I see
I see you crying next to me
I see your pain, I see your tears
Through your laughs, and through the years
Past your mask I see your face
You are hiding in this place
Trust in me, I won't let you fall
You don't have to hide at all

Open up what's in your heart
That is the place I will start
Open up your eyes and see
All that's left is you and me
In the end you'll see the light
Come on, I don't want to fight
Together we will make it through
Come on. Now, It's me and you

Now you can start to feel
How much this love is true and real 
behind your eyes you keep your pain
It's all locked up in your brain
Come on. Now, just let it out
It's okay to scream and shout
I will help you through and through
I will always be with you

Slam and Eggs

Best sung in a country music way
with a redneck attitude ,  Hoorahhhhhhh

This is a work of fiction, and 
any resemblance to anyone or contest 
is purely coincidental.

All Together Now !

Oh, a Sponsor, Has done it again
Made a contest, I can't get in
But that's fine
I'll just sit here with my rhyme

They posted a contest, with a couple of rules
That make rhymers like me, feel just like fools 
But that's fine
I'll let it go one more time

      chorus

I could maybe pen a sonnet
Just to get my song in
Or try to write an Ode
Just for giggles and grins
But it's true and you know it
I'll never win
What a sin 
Why don't we try it again

 
It's all about the form,of poems today
Not about the words that they have to say
But that's fine
I'm going to stay, true to mine


chorus

I could maybe pen a sonnet
Just to get my song in
Or try to write an Ode
Just for giggles and grins
But it's true and you know it
I'll never win
What a sin 
Why don't we try it again

Bite

Take a walk along the side of the tracks
And you’ll be getting all that you’ve been driving at
With your, snake like grip
And ruthless eyes that despise
There ain’t no compromise

You’re slithering 
Just like an animal
It gets me worked up
Hard with just a little pull
So let’s skip the bull
And cut right back
To the fact

Pre-Chorus
You been teasin me without a please
Hugging me without a squeeze
Pushing over boundaries
Just one time too much

Verse 2

Ya know ya asked me once 
If I could be your apple
I said “teacher please”
But you said “See me after”
But I’ve got work to do
And a mouth to feed
Know what I mean?

Pre-chorus





Chorus
And she said “Take a bite!”
You know it’s all in the rhythm
Take a bite
Just thrust with your hips now!
Take a bite
Don’t squeal like a pig
Ya know it’s all so good, cause it feels so right

Take a bite!
Ya know it’s all in the wrist now
Take a bite!
You know it’s all in the kiss now
Take a bite!
Don’t squeal like a pig
Ya know it’s all so good, cause it ain’t so right

12 days of xmas

Just 12 days to Christmas
So much hope in the air
And a chilling in my tummy
With 11 days to go
My B.P is now high
And where do I get some money
Now going to the bank
To check out what is left
Only just to leave there empty
Now where are my guys?
I cannot understand
8 are just nowhere
7 went to marriage
6 are now studying
5 raaan awayyyy
4 hanged my calls
3 washing clothes
2 went to club
And 1 told me he’s not free

Creepy Confections

SUNG TO THE TUNE OF “MY FAVORITE THINGS” 
As Found in the “Sound of music”
Lyrics by JTC



I like confections, that feed all my craving
Macaroons covered with coconut shavings
Sugar plum cookies so big, you should share
Theses are the things that I like to prepare

Raspberry jelly, fills my cookie centers
The icing on top, I learned from my mentors
Sprinkling Jimmies fly free through the air
Theses are the things that I like to prepare

Marzipan made from pumpkin and spices
Covered in chocolate, serves all my vices
Lemon drop candies are made with such care
These are the things that are fun to prepare

But when the night comes, and the moons out
And I’m feeling dead
I simply remember, that I like fresh brains
And turn to eat them, instead

Eyeballs and ears with curdled blood icing
I hand the brains to others for slicing
Mincing the meat, to make pies with a flare
These are a few of the things I prepare

My special treat, are raw ladies’ fingers
As soon as they’re served, they seldom do linger
When pickling livers, the others just stare
But these are the things that I like to prepare

I boil skulls till they’re soft and chewy
Cook down the blood till it’s thick and gooey
Resisting these snacks,  Is the thing I can't bare
Cause these are the things that I like to prepare

But when the day comes and the suns out
And I’m filled with life
I simply return to the living again
And cook up some sweets........ till night

The Last Letter

Hey Mary Anne
Hows it going in the city
I am missing you a lot
I love you, And i know you miss me
I miss your love
I miss your care

I hope your shop is running good
Did you buy yourself a car
The colour, That you said you would
Look at the stars
Im not so far

There is something you must know
But I dont have much time to show
So then I wrote this last letter
And it has some of my soul
Im dying fast, I breathe my last
Its in my brain, Its gonna blast
Happend so fast.....

Hey Mary Anne
Before you read this I'll be gone
To the distant shore of heaven
Where I'll sit and write my songs
Girl dont you cry
I'll be alright

There is not much left to say
But babe whenever you feel lonely
You just look up here and pray
You'll here me sing
A voice within

Tear this letter once you'r done
Tear it to pieces, Let it burn
Release my soul that is in you
carry on life is so much fun
Now let me go, Just let me go
I'll await you in another world
In another world...

YOUR BLACK HAT

      YOUR BLACK HAT
I put on your black hat, the one you gave to me.
Thought I'd be downtown, like we used to be.
All I met was faces, of friends we thought we knew,
Friends who couldn't see me without you.
      They couldn't recognize me without you.

I put on your black hat, I wear it every day.
When I go downtown, where we used to play.
All I see is faces, of almost friends we've known.
Smiling like they'd rather be alone.
       Without you, I'm someone they used to know.

I still wear your black hat, it's like a part of me.
I still wear your black hat, it's all you left for me.

I put on your black hat, everywhere I go.
To live our beat. To feel our rock and roll.
All I see is faces, of friends we never knew.
Friends who know I'm no one without you.
      They'll never recognize me, without you.
I still wear your black hat.
I still wear your black hat.

Ignorant to passing time
Reality strikes its deafening chime
Unspoken words pass between
I and you, my darling queen

Lay your weary head to rest
With your arms across your chest
Now it's time to close your eyes
Whisper your final goodbyes

Let me go, we'll both be free
Cross the wasteland, past the sea
Find the path to heaven's light
Break away from endless night

Embracing tears of bitter pain
Falling lightly with the rain
Out of reach, I hear your song
Alone again, I sing along

Let me go, we'll both be free
Cross the wasteland, past the sea
Find the path to heaven's light
Break away from endless night

From the night. . .
I watched your velvet wings take flight
I never saw you so alive
So alive
I watched your velvet wings take flight
I'll never ever say goodbye
Never say goodbye

Life has ended, you have won
Death befriended, pain is gone
Fly away into the light
Crystal clear and shining bright
Close your eyes for final rest
Meeting among the blessed

Let me go, we'll both be free
Cross the wasteland, past the sea
Find the path to heaven's light
Break away from endless night

From the night. . .
I watched your velvet wings take flight
I never saw you so alive
So alive
I watched your velvet wings take flight
I'll never ever say goodbye
Never say goodbye

I let you go so you'll be free
Cross the path of darkened sea
I watched your velvet wings take flight
I can never say goodbye
Never say goodbye

The World Is Round

I want to know you,
I want to show you
The world is round.

I want to hold you,
I want to fold you
Into my arms.

I’m going to find you,
I’m right behind you
I’m almost there.

My arms are open,
They sure are hoping
To see you there.

Live for the moment,
You cannot hold it
It’s so unfair.

Now that you know it,
Go on and show it
I’ll see you there.

I’m going to find you,
I’m right behind you
I’m almost there.

My arms are open,
They sure are hoping
To see you there.

I want to know you,
I want to show you
The world is round.

I want to hold you,
I want to fold you
Into my arms.

I’m going to find you,
I’m right behind you
I’m almost there.

My arms are open,
They sure are hoping
To see you there.

Thoughts of A Song Writer

From my thoughts on the paper in which it lies, 
My everlasting passion is inked as it dries.
The way I feel inside, you might want to spy,
But if you pry, how will my lyrics surprise?
A song for thought will only leave a thought.
May sound difficult, but that’s just how I talk.
I was lost, but I found me.
Dreaming and believing that writing was my key.
The way it flows and the way that it goes pumps me to speak
the very thoughts that many minds chose to keep.
Many rocks I’ve kicked and many decisions I’ve made.
Any wrongs I take the blame.
Tic-tac-toe is only a game.
I plagiarize your eyes with the notes that I’ve taken,
A high note here and a low note there-
You’d swear I’m in your head when my song hits your ear.
Pain recognizes pain
And I’ve have my share of bandages.
 My vibes from life heals the permanent damages.
Thoughts of a Songwriter,
Reaches farther beyond the beat,
Over the lyrics on the sheet,
Not only is it about the speech,
 But more of what the message seeks.
True enough a theme is touched and a heart is rushed.
With the mind-throbbing picture disappearing 
Through the ink of my pen and revealed through your lens,
You can’t hear me, but do you feel me?
I cherish my talent and where it could possibly sweep me.
My doubts and my worries are beneath me.
I love for brighter days and pray for more things to pave.
Call my life my number because its infinite.
Thoughts of a Songwriter,
My mentality drips it.

Land,Land of the Jews

A duet in the style and melody of Home On The Range
(Palestine) Oh, give me a land where no Hebrews stand where Palestine could live and shine where seldom is seen a Rabbi or ‘stein and Jerusalem could be all mine (chorus) Land, land without Jews where Palestine could live and shine where seldom is seen a Rabbi or ‘stein and Jerusalem could be all mine (Israel) You don’t understand, God gave us this land where Palestine would hate and whine where seldom it seems, peace is a dream and Jerusalem should be all mine (chorus) Land, land of the Jews where Palestine still hates and whines where seldom it seems, peace is the dream and Jerusalem shall be all mine

I MADE ROOM FOR JESUS

The window to my broken past
     Has shattered.
I have walked into the dreams
     That seemed so far away.
The fog has lifted, I have sifted
     Through the things that mattered.
Finding nothing left of yesterday.

'Cause I made room for Jesus in my life.
     He helps me with my worries and my strife.
I pray to him each day, for guidance on my way.
     Yes, I made room for Jesus in my life.

The cries of loneliness have turned
     To laughter.
The wind has carried me above
     The sea I drifted on.
I live again, he's my best friend.
     There's no more looking after,
The lost an lonely man, for he is gone.
    
'Cause I reached out for Jesus with my hand.
     I knew he'd be the one to understand,
His spirit entered me, I felt so calm and free.
     'Cause I reached out for Jesus with my hand.

The road is rocky but he's there
     To listen,
As I move ever closer to
     The love within his heart.
The days are bright, I see the light.
     My eyes begin to glisten,
With the love and faith that Jesus can impart.

Oh, I made room for Jesus, can't you see.
     And Jesus, he has lots of room for me.
I pray to him each day, For guidance on my way.
     Oh, I made room for Jesus can't you see.

I'm Singing A Song You Like

I'm singing and playing guitar.
I'm singing and playing guitar.
I'm singing, I'm singing a song you like..

And if you want me, and need me real bad.
Just call me.
I'm there when you want.
Just call me.
I'm there when you need my love.

I'll give you, the things that you need.
I'll give you, the things that you want.
I'll give you, the love that you need from me..

Because I'm singing and playing guitar.
I'm singing and playing guitar.
I'm singing, I'm singing a song you like.

When I give you, the love that you need.
Return, your love to me.
Return, your love to me at once..

Because I'm singing and playing guitar.
I'm singing and playing guitar.
I'm singing, I'm singing a song you like.

And when you call me.
Please want me real bad.
I need you.
I need you real bad.
I love you.
I love you for what you are.

I'm singing and playing guitar.
I'm singing and playing guitar.
I'm singing, I'm singing a song you like..

Each Time We Go A Stray

I know He'll guide
our feet
I know He'll light
our way
I know He'll gently
lead us back
Each time we go a
stray

There are times in
life we stumble
We falter and we
fail
We feel that no one
understands
We feel that no one
cares

We start to go our
own way
We question God and
cry
We wonder what's the
point of life
Why should we even
try

We know we shouldn't
look at
The places from our
past
But it's right there
in Jesus hands
Our burdens we
should cast

He tells us in His
Holy Word
He's always by our
side
He'll never leave us
lonely
But with us will
abide

If only we'll rely
on Him
Through each and
every day
We'll be surrounded
by his love
And hear Him gently
say

My child, I'll guide
your feet
And I will light
your way
I'll gently lead you
back to Me
Each time you go a
stray

Until then...

 If I were to sing to you a song it would be a song that would set fire to the soul.
 I would remind you of the lips you've burnt and the heart you stole.

 People do not truly get over the one's they've loved until someone they love more comes
along.
 When will he come along and stop this cruel, torturing song? 

 Who knows? Until then I wait here in this melancholy existence. 
 I don't want the world. Just a warm, safe, unbreakable embrace and a long, sweet
surrendering kiss. 

 Until then I cry these tears and sing this song...
  Until then...

Forsaken Angel -WIP-

Lil white flakes falling to the ground,
Covering the dead roses all around.
Healing the wounds left by your knife,
Salvation for the poor, mourning girl's life.

Petals fall like dust from a forsaken angel's wings;
Beautiful like the song that my heart still brokenly sings.

She kneels beside an old gravestone,
Remembering the skies her heart had flown.
Now that heart lies broken,
As she cries over your love token.

Petals fall like dust from a forsaken angel's wings;
Beautiful like the song that my heart still brokenly sings.

In the silence

I will lie back in the coolness of the grass.
Different colors of green will appear in shadows. 
The smell will be that of a gentle rain storm, with the hint of the redness of a flower. Different shades of lovely with make their way down the small hill, they will spray colors over the entire earth.
The sky will show the glorious color of white, dazzling the eye.
The sun will show the color yellow, as the rays cast orange streams of light.
The gentle breeze will cradle the Earth, and bring the feeling of life. The sweetness of life and love.
The mellow Earth calm and cool. I will lie deep in the Grass, and be still, and listen to the song of earth. The call of a new beginning. 
The sweet song of life. 
It will whisper its melody in my ear, and breath its calmness. Time is safe here, It stands still. 
Untouched. 
The earth is at peace here. The quietness, offers, healing somehow
 The lord speaks here, His voice quiet and still.

The Master Of The Rhyme

The Master Of The Rhyme
This was inspired by comments 
made to me , by Great Poets
Peter Duggan and Olive Guillermo
And sung to the tune 
Phantom Of The Opera's 
"Music of The Night"   by Andrew LLoyd Webber 


Words that rhyme well--- serve to show my passion
Searching for the--- style that suits my fashion
Everything I see--- Is a poem meant for me
And I write it though it seems to be sublime 
I truly am the master of the rhyme

While I’m sleeping--- in my mind come creeping
Filled with laughter--- mystery and weeping
Like an artist with his brush---I am filled with such a rush
And it paints a picture deep inside my mind
I wonder if I’m Master of the rhyme

Do you know who’s the Master of all known words
Do you know when he comes or where he goes
As He writes with my hands and through my soul
Whether it be a rhyme or it be prose 

Written words--- start forming innuendoes  
Join and bond--- then rise like a crescendo 
When I awake I find--- this happens every time
I am just the name that must be signed
For I am not the Master of the rhyme

As I sit here staring at the empty page
He whispers in my ear again
I don’t know where the poem’s going to go 
But, when I start the words begin to flow

Is It God, and is He on the level
Cursing me, as If I were the devil
Cause once I start to rhyme---the words begin to chime
Like a bell--- keeps ringing in my mine
He truly is the Master of the Rhyme

He alone holds the blessing---I make mine
For I am just a servant of the Rhyme

Faith

I walk along the memories,
Side stepping the shadows.
Staying away from miseries,
Remembering what love knows.

Faith, you haven't forgotten.
Faith, you will turn your head.
Faith, you will look my way again.
Say that our love is not dead.

I hold the thought of embrace,
may I have another dance?
Take me to a happy place,
to once again romance.

Faith, you are still inspired.
Faith, you need me once more
Faith, you haven't forgotten
Say I'm what your living for.

I have faith you have not forgotten,
Your lips as they trace my kiss
I have faith our love is not broken
You know it is your love that I miss.

Destined To Win

Walking in the power of Jesus
Walking in the power of God
Singing this song of victory
Washed in His precious blood.

Walking in the power of Jesus
Free from the power of sin
Singing this song of victory
Cause I am destined to win.

I'm destined, I'm destined, I'm destined to win
Walking in the power of God
I'm destined, I'm destined, I'm destined to win
Washed in His precious blood.

I'm destined, I'm destined, I'm destined to win
Walking in the victory
I'm destined, I'm destined, I'm destined to win
Because Jesus lives in me.

I am an unread book on an empty book shelf

I live in this cell with my self-hatred
How I was raised makes me feel so isolated 
These are not my thoughts or feelings for that matter
But I still feel as if I’m an ugly house that will never flatter

Even if you were to fix me
I’d still have some screws loose
I’d rather you knock me down
And tighten up my noose
Because my personality is too obtuse….
For you to understand

Until then, I’ll wait in the gallows
Waving my right hand
Trying to find a way out
Because I can’t tie a noose like you can…

It’s depressing to think that I possess this body that I can’t stand
Everyone that I love and meet will never truly know who I am
Because the face that I show is a total scam

So, For the time being I’m stuck in this body

This mind...

This soul...

I’ll forever be tortured in this blood stained hell hole.

Tarana-Ta Na Na Dhoom - My New Carol Song with English Text lines



TARANA - CAROL SINGING- OR PLEASURE SINGING

Tarana- Ta Na Na Dhoom -  My New Hindi Song with English Text lines

Form- Lyrics

TARANA – A BRIEF INTRODUCTION

Tarana singing is the outcome of those wonderful feelings of heart, 
which burst from the lips of the singer unknowingly. Tarana comes 
on the lips when the heart is in the swinging mood and the feelings 
of joy and pleasure began to come out in the form of meaningless 
and sometimes meaningful words almost in a similar manner 
in all the languages of the world.

Tarana is an Indian musical form in classical music. It has been the 
most popular form sung all over India. The form often with meaningless 
words has attracted not only the vocalists, but the dancers of kathak* 
and bharatnatyam* of both north and south India respectively. The 
monophonic syllables sung in fast tempo has made it enjoyable from 
a learned to a lay man.

I have placed in my Tarana Song Video (on You Tube), some of my 
Photos  with Hindi Song lines in Roman English as well as its English 
 Text lines to show the mood of the Song, which resembles the 
Photos shown in the Video. I am hopeful that this new experimental 
song even without music would give a new horizon to use this form of 
singing for our English Music lovers.

Critical impressions from my music lover Poetry Soup friends about the 
Tarana form of singing and Video is requested and it would be highly 
appreciated. With best wishes

There Is No Age To Love

A meteor falls down from the stars
Catching fire the faster it falls

She sits in her new house
Sitting in the window seat
Reading a book about wild love
And how fast it grows and catches fire
She watches the meteor shower from her window
She hears a noise coming from the hallway
She creeps around the corner
As she follows the sound to the attic
She opens the creaking attic door
A young man sits before the window
In an old red chair
Half falling apart
He is facing her 
With the back of the chair facing the window
The attic door slams shut
She gasps for air
She is very afraid
He speeds and surely stands before her
Face to face
They meet
He asks her
"who are you?"
she replies
"Amelius, you?"
He moves back as he turns and his back faces her
"Eric"
He moves towards her slowly
And disapears
A few days past
She wonders where he is
She sits in the attic and waits for him
He appears behind her
She explains to him that she feels like she knows him
He sits by her on the bed
he explains there past life together
He returned to meet with her again
She died in a bathtub
He was holding her
Trying to wake her up from the pills she took
She died
After her funeral
He committed suicide
She moved on and became reborn again
He didnt because he was stuck in the past
He kisses her cheek
And she stands in awe
She does drugs in her new life
One night she was driving home
She was on acid
And she ran into a tree
She was dead on the scene
He shows up and pulls her out of the car
She thanks him for saving her
He reaches to hold her hand
"your cold"
She looks at him
"what? you mean im.."
He says "yes"
They leave together in peace
Where they should have been in the begining
His ghost soul is 46 years old
But his age of which he died is 19
She was 17 when she died the first time
The second time she died she was 19
her ghost soul is 23 years old
Love has no age

In The Shadows

Softly she whispers my name in the shadows.   So
Gently I pull her in close in the shadows.          I 
Breathe in her breath and she breathes in my breath, then we
Dance that same dance once again in the dark.

She quickly surrenders when I start to tickle.
I know every nerve on her that makes her giggle.
I kiss her neck and she kisses my neck, then we
Dance that same dance once again in the dark.

After the dance we both sigh in the shadows, so
I’ll hold her close till she sleeps in the shadows.  I’ll
Deal with my world and she’ll deal with her world, till we
Dance that same dance once again in the dark.

Re-post of Come Inside- Stanzas Added by Richard Lamoureux

(Eileen)
Your heavy heart is weary, worn
Bloody and bruised, it’s fiercely torn
To Loneliness, a vow you've sworn
To dwell in night without a morn
Come inside

To live and love, you've lost your will 
Of sorrow’s cup you've had your fill
Desire’s longing, quiet…still
Heart frozen by rejection’s chill
Come inside

Chorus
Come inside my life, feel now the fire
Come inside my heart, dip in desire
Come inside my soul, to love aspire
Come inside my mind, let me inspire

(Richard)
Let love’s essence, flow through your veins 
Experience true peace again 
Live in a world devoid of pain 
Find shelter from the pouring rain 
Come inside 

To live and love, you'll know the thrill 
Of blissful cup, you'll drink your fill 
Desire quenched, within my will 
In the calm, let your heart be still 
Come inside 

(Eileen)
Chorus
Come inside my life, feel now the fire
Come inside my heart, dip in desire
Come inside my soul, to love aspire
Come inside my mind, let me inspire

Refrain
Come
Come
Come inside my body, come inside
Come and dip inside my pleasure’s tide
Come inside my body, come inside
Come glide into heaven, come abide
Come
Come
Come…..I N S I D E

It isn't fair to her that I still think of you

It isn’t fair to her that I still think of you


No, it’s really not fair to her		
That I still think of you.
When I thought about forever,		
I used to think of you.
I was ready to settle down;		
I thought that you were too…
But when I saw you play around,	
I knew that we were through.

When I later met another		
(to help get over you),
I was happy to be with her.		
I’d gotten over you.
We ended up getting married,		
And we were happy, too.
But it might have been too hurried--	
I’m not quite over you.

She didn’t lie to me; you did.  
She didn’t cheat on me; you did.
She didn’t abandon me; you did.  
So I should be thinking of her; not you!

I know I’m better off with her,		
Than I once was with you.
And it’s really not fair to her		
For me to think of you.
So when I hold her close tonight	,	
And just think of us two,
Then everything will be all right.		
I won’t think about you.

She didn’t lie to me; you did.  
She didn’t cheat on me; you did.
She didn’t abandon me; you did.  
So I will be thinking of her; not you!

Egyptian Dancer

I still remember
When I first saw her
Emerging alone
From shadowy gloom
Dark eyes like
embers
Glowing like fires
Behind veils hidden
In tribal costume

Music pulsating
Waist undulating
Arms raising upwards
Trailing gossamer
Hip belts girating
Gold coins cascading
Backwards and
forwards
In silks and amber.

Her bedlah whirling
Under-skirts
swirling
Endlessly teasing
The room full of men
Gracefully twirling
Her veils unfurling
Almost revealing
Then hidden again

(Chorus)
Egyptian dancer
Sultry entrancer
Fanning the fires 
Of the men who stay
In want we suffer
Nothing we offer
Will ever stop her 
From dancing away

Lyrics to:
The Texas Poet Two Step



There won't be no Sun out on the Brazos 
There won't be no rain in Abilene 
I won't write a poem for Tom's contest
And Margaret Reid won't get a check from me

I'm tired of my poems lining trash cans
And see'in my money go to waste
And when that winners 'Click', has their party
It's like throw'in a can of 'Loser' in my face

               chorus

Yes, I thought about the contest
I thought that I could win
But then, reality started sett'in in
I know I'd write with passion
Eloquence and grace
But in the end , I won't even place


So, I know what I'll do with all that money
I'll hold it in My hand and keep it near
And the day they claim to have their Contest Drawing
I'm buying sixteen dollars worth of beer.
              
               chorus

Yes, I thought about the contest
I thought that I could win
But then, reality started sett'in in
I know I'd write with passion
Eloquence and grace
But in the end , I won't even place
Heeyah

When Darkness Hides the Spring

When I am dead who will read
these little songs I sing
when thick the mould presses down
and darkness hides the spring?

My soul so filled with longing,
finds too short life’s little day
to fulfill a lover’s hunger
for earth’s beauteous bouquet.

I think my voice will shout aloud
although they say I’m dead,
and my mute heart will sing until
the grasses tremble overhead.

Yesterday's Song

Yesterday I woke just like any other day
All the songs, that I need to play
My music had, all slipped away
Troubles come, he rode over me just for fun
Seemed to me that I should have run
So I'm not the smartest one
Far from me, is where my words must want to be
Away from home, they wander free

Now I call them back to me, no reply
It seems to me they don't even try
Looks like they've gone without goodbye
As if they want to make me cry, and they do
Though it's not their fault, I know it's true
They're just doing what it is they do
Here is my heart it breaks for you, have your way
To God above I now must pray
Stay my words, don't let them stray

Oh please don't let it end this way, but it will
I see my future life, race downhill
Believe it's meant to test my will
In prison now there is no thrill
Yesterday, started just like any other day

Poetry

The keyboard is their instrument
A heart aroused warm with desire
Emotions long pent up unvented
Maybe rage set the mouse on fire

Chorus:
Poetry is their game
Fun played and meters tamed
Creating lines to the click of the mouse's beat
A rhythm, oh! so sweet

Delight in every word displayed
Laughter enchants in many ways
Passion and desire light a fire
In the long hours reaching higher

Poetry is their game 
Fun played and meters tamed
Creating lines to the click of the mouse's beat
A rhythm, oh! so sweet

Newsy items bewitch their mind
Then they entertain some new lines
Clicking of keys, push of a mouse
Laughter and tears bring down the house

Poetry is their game
Fun played and meters tamed
Creating lines to the click of the mouse's beat
A rhythm, oh! so sweet

Ooooo!! Poetry
Ooooo!! Poetry

Soup Song Sing-a-long

Differences can tear apart or bring you close together
Sometimes songs have harmony when sung by birds of different feather
Listen close and you might learn about a thing or two
Close your mind and shout a lot – no one listens to you

I jumped in the soup, a neophyte, afraid I might get burned
But found support from learned souls, everywhere I turned
Taken to places I didn’t know exist; a new world opened up to me
People willing to share their gifts of limitless possibility

But, some were stubborn and fought a lot about forms and certain rules
Some were full of jealousies and were being rather cruel
And at times, the soup began to acquire a bitter taste
But soon you learn what ingredients to savor and which ones are simply waste

Differences can tear apart or bring you close together
Sometimes songs have harmony when sung by birds of different feather
Listen close and you might learn about a thing or two
Close your mind and shout a lot – no one listens to you

So, jump in,
Take a swim,
The soup is oh so fine;
Add some spice,
Help make it nice,
And bring along some wine;
Sit over here,
And bend my ear,
With thoughts I never thought;
I want to learn,
From everyone,
The things that they were taught.

Differences can tear apart or bring you close together
Sometimes songs have harmony when sung by birds of different feather
Listen close and you might learn about a thing or two
Close your mind and shout a lot – no one listens to you

Demolition Lovers

"This time we will show them all how much we mean"

Walking into the school
Short blonde hair
Stunning blue eyes
Wearing make up on his face
The paint on his face
Is a skilled drawing of a skull
As he passes
Everyone starres
He keeps walking foreward
Not looking at them

She enters through the other end of the hallway
Long blonde hair
Deep brown eyes
Also wearing makeup on her face
A skilled drawing of a smaller skull
All the girls she passes
Starre at her
Wondering what kind of girl would 
Wear makeup like that

The Boy and the girl
Meet in the middle of the hallway
They hold eachothers hands
And continue down the hallway

Seeing them from behind
You read on his backpack
"I gave you my bullets..."
And on her bag you can see
"And i gave you my love"
They walk out of the school together
All the teachers starring
All the students watching there every move
They walk straight out to his car
A black Mustaine 1998
Before they get to the bridge 
He ties there hands together

They drive 10 miles
To a bridge
Theres a hill
A bridge
And a river
Hes going 90 mph
She clinches his hand
He looks at her with a smile on his face
She looks back at him pale as a ghost
The car jumps over the bridge into the river
The lovers dying on empact
Forever tied together by
The rope he tied earlier

Like a bed of roses
Theres alot of reasons
Why we are laying here
As we are falling down into
The pool of blood
I see your eyes
I mean this when I say forever.

Hit 'em Hard And hit 'em Fast for Star Craft II video game

The Tal-Dareem are fighting-mad;
They've realized they've just been had.
Expect soon Zealots and Stalkers,
Immortals and those "cliff walkers".
What matter's most: who's standing last,
So hit 'em hard and hit 'em fast.

Carriers and Voids will fill the sky,
And Dark Templars may be sneakin' by.
Double the turrets, add more bunkers--
Fill them with Marines and Marauders.
What matters most: who's standing last,
So hit 'em hard and hit 'em fast!

Jim's Raiders' troops will soon be back;
Get ready to counter-attack!
So train more Reapers for rear missions:
Sneak around back, take out their pylons.
Make sure we're the ones left standing last.
Just hit 'em hard and hit 'em fast.

Any Better Than This

I met a charming girl during church Sunday--

She was the kind of girl that I’d like to stay.

Being a gentleman, I did nothing amiss

I didn’t think life could get any better than this.

 

Offered to see her home, it was on my way.

She gave me a pretty smile and she said okay.

Walking and talking with her, I think I found my bliss.

I didn’t think life could get any better than this.
 

(Chorus)

She invited me to stick around a while.

How could I say no to such a pretty smile.

Minutes turned to hours, days to months and years;

Dates to going steady, then wedding toasts and cheers.

 

We showed off our baby girl at the church Sunday.

The pastor said the words to help her on her way.

Holding my two girls real close, I’m sure I found by bliss;

And I still don’t think that life gets any better than this.

Candlelight

It’s late at night by candlelight while I’m sitting here at home 
picking on this old guitar without you in my arms.  
The lightning flashed and something crashed and 
all the lights went dim – ain’t it funny how 
the storm outside is how I feel within.  
I don’t know how it happened that you 
up and went away and don’t know how 
the weather works on any given day.

                                  Refrain: 
And all I know is the wind still blows no matter what I do 
even when I’m picking on these six strings without you.  
As my life goes on from song to song 
while you’re out running free.  
I’d burn every candle I could find 
if it would bring you back to me. 
 

Every time the light goes out something 
changes in my mind; the love we had not long ago 
is drifting down the line.  Like a rolling train 
in a tunnel made inside a mountain high; 
I feel so lost without you now it feels like I could die.  
Right here in my sadness and these low down hurting ways; 
this candle fire lifts me up higher than all these rainy days.   

                                 Refrain: 
And all I know is the wind still blows no matter what I do 
even when I’m picking on these six strings without you.  
As my life goes on from song to song 
while you’re out running free.  
I’d burn every candle I could find
if it would bring you back to me.  


I sure hope that the light returns 
in my house and in my soul; it’s hard to see 
right front of me ever since you hit the road.  
It seems all I have are these memories and melodies 
and dreams; and every night the lights go out 
you’re all that I can see.  I’m like a blind man 
in the darkness all my colors turned to gray 
so I’ll keep this candle burning 
hoping you’ll come back some day.  

                             Refrain: 
And all I know is the wind still blows no matter what I do 
even when I’m picking on these six strings without you.  
As my life goes on from song to song 
while you’re out running free.  
I’d burn every candle I could find 
if it would bring you back to me. 


As my life goes on from song to song 
while you’re out running free.  
I’d burn every candle I could find 
from now until the end of time 
if it would bring you back to me.

When Our Ships Sailed

Abandon ship; it's a lost cause
I'm the captain and
I lost control of our ships
Off track they roll

Grab a souvenir; make this quick
I can't; there's way too many to pick
I must go and run for the safety boats
But I can't leave without you though

These pictures and little notes
They all remind me of the time
The time when our ships had sailed
But this ship is now sinking

What did I hit?
What was in my way?
Why did I not see it coming?
Oh, the ships are sinking

It's safe to say there's no hope any more
And it's better if I leave and give up
I don't wanna waste you; I know I'm a bore
I'm tired of chasing you; you could never hear my roar

It was said and done
Said and done again
Said and done a thousand more times
I'm tired of waiting for our ships to sail again

Ironic how all this talk
All this whine
And all my squeaks
Still remind me of when our ships sailed

...ain't nothing but the blues

talkin' sweltering licks

screaming through flaming hues

reaching deep, deep into that wandering soul

of devilish chords on those walkways of paris

strutting and strumming, never taking a mere stroll

so though your time here and now may be up 

and though your moments here and now may be through

forgive me for borrowing your words again

I'm Out Of Love Again

I only like the young ones the beautiful and tall the brunettes or the redheads, or the bleach blonde Barbie doll head over heels in love again and I spin into a daze but love can’t last forever, ‘cause we got too different ways I get bored way too easy no woman loves me long it’s incompatibility and sad to be alone it’s just the natural way if things, these matters of the heart and with all my insecurities it always falls apart (chorus) and tonight once more, I’m out of love again back out in the cold cold night with that familiar icy wind summer days are memories and winter’s just stormed in and tonight once more, I’m out of love again I only like the young ones, the beautiful and tall If they’ve got it all together, it’s for sure I’m gonna fall Where there’s spark there’s fire, it burns up in a blaze But love can’t last forever, ‘cause we got too different ways (chorus) and tonight once more, I’m out of love again back out in the cold cold night with that familiar icy wind summer days are memories and winter’s just stormed in and tonight once more, I’m out of love again I get bored way too easy, no woman loves me long it’s incompatibility and sad to be alone so as I travel down this road I sing my sad love song I’ll keep rollin’ town to town, ‘til this road finds me a home (chorus) and tonight once more, I’m out of love again back out in the cold cold night with that familiar icy wind summer days are memories and winter’s just stormed in and tonight once more, I’m out of love again (repeat chorus),/center>

Don't You Cry

Well, my mother, she lay sick in bed;
And I can hear the words she said:
Don't you cry little boy,
Don't you cry little boy,
The Lord is near
Well, the doctor said he give her a weak;
Because she is so very week.
Don't you cry little boy,
Don't you cry little boy, 
The Lord is here.

Well, my father, he lay dying in bed;
And I can hear the words he said:
Don't you cry little girl,
Don't you cry little girl,
The Lord is near. 
The day has come and he's with me no more;
With wings in Heaven he will soar.
Don't you cry little girl, 
Don't you cry little girl, 
The Lord is here.

Well, our baby brother lay in his crib;
And these are the words we said:
Don't you cry little baby,
Don't you cry little baby, 
The Lord is near. 
He struggles for breath and cannot rest;
His hearts beats hard on his chest.
Don't you cry little baby, 
Don't you cry little baby, 
The Lord is here. 

Don't you cry little children, 
Don't you cry little children, 
I, the Lord, am near.
Don't you cry little children,
Don't you cry little children,
I, the Lord, am here.

If My Siege-Tank's A-Rockin' from Star Craft II video game

The Hydralisks are assembling just out of range,
Supported by Roaches, Infestors, Banelings,…
The Mutalisks are hovering beyond our turrets,
Brutalisks are moving—it’s looking quite desperate.

There’s a silver lining for each “end of the world”:
My shift’s almost done and my Siege Tank’s been rebuilt.
I could spend my last hours paralyzed in fright;
But no, got a date with that cute medic tonight.

I took several stim-packs off a dead Marine,
And I’ll take a few jolts if she gives me the green.
So all those Zerg monsters better stay out of sight…
Better not mess with me and my Medic tonight.

We’re all out of minerals, we’re out of Vespene.
We’ve made our last Marauders and our last Viking.
But if Ghosts and Banshees can hit the Zerg just right,
I might still be around for my Medic tonight.

Chorus)  	Got a date with that blue-eyed young medic tonight.
		You know, the one that I’ve had for months in my sights.
		If my Siege Tank’s a rockin’, don’t come a knockin’.
		Got a date with that pretty sweet medic tonight.

LAST NIGHT WITH THE GIRLS

I jump up out of bed ‘cause the alarm clock is ringing got a song sittin’ on the tip of my tongue, I start singing I’m staring at myself tryin’ to make my lips turn pink with the blow dryer in my ear, it gives me time to think on the cocktail naps, can’t remember what we wrote last night with the girls drinkin’ rum and diet coke I smoked my last cigarette with the girls last night the lyrics came fast from the left and from the right something ‘bout a dance and dare to take a chance could this be the one, be that one true romance it’s only been a day, but I could kill for a smoke last night with the girls drinkin’ rum and diet coke

in this chameleon color world filled sky high let the rainbow colors just fly on by - fly on by even those not usually seen - makes it all feel so pristine and the ones that bleed and the ones that fade shine bright in the light and in the shade - in the shade I fall into bed and set the alarm clock to ring can’t get to sleep this song on my tongue I sing I’m staring at the walls lyin’ flat on my back tossin’ and a turnin’ tryin’ to make it all turn black can’t remember what we wrote, I wish I had a smoke last night with the girls drinkin’ rum and diet coke
(chorus)
in this chameleon color world filled sky high let the rainbow colors just fly on by - fly on by even those not usually seen - makes it all feel so pristine and the ones that bleed and the ones that fade shine bright in the light and in the shade - in the shade
(chorus)
in this chameleon color world filled sky high let the rainbow colors just fly on by - fly on by even those not usually seen - makes it all feel so pristine and the ones that bleed and the ones that fade me and the girls got it in the shade - in the shade

The Dark Side Of You

she starts with lightning, blinding light then comes her roaring thunder might search for shelter to hide under then more rolling roaring thunder (bridge) she is the storm in human form, in human form she is the storm she pours like rain, the pouring rain she is the sleet and snow and pain so cold so cold, so damp so damp turgid, frigid vicious vamp (chorus) I can’t get through the dark side of you I can’t get through to you she is the storm in human form I can’t get through the dark side of you I can’t get through to you she is the storm that blacks my sky frozen chest no breath for good bye can’t think, can’t feel can’t find reason there is no refuge from her changing season (chorus) she is the storm in human form, in human form she is the storm I can’t get through the dark side of you I can’t get through to you she is the storm in human form I can’t get through the dark side of you I can’t get through to you (repeat chorus) I can't get through can't get through can't get through I can't I can't I...

Thats Not What a Kiss is For

Artist: Michael Card
Song Title: Why

Why did it have to be a friend
Who chose to betray the Lord
Why did he use a kiss to show them
That's not what a kiss is for

Only a friend can betray a friend
A stranger has nothing to gain
And only a friend comes close enough
To ever cause so much pain

And why did there have to be thorny
Crown pressed upon His head
It should have been the royal one
Made of jewels and gold instead

It had to be a crown of thorns
Because in this life that we live
For all who seek to love
A thorn is all the world has to give

And why did it have to be
A heavy cross He was made to bare
And why did they nail His feet and hands
His love would have held Him there

It was a cross for on a cross
A thief was supposed to pay
And Jesus had come into the world
To steal every heart away

Yes, Jesus had come into the world
To steal every heart away

So Meditate And Visualize Me

There's No Way To Get On The Wrong Track
Spin That Cd And Play That Track Back

The Greatest Song

Name of song artist: George Harrison   -   Song Title: "Isn't It A Pity."

Poem below:

The greatest song of all time
shows how all people are blind
we either can't see the forest thru the trees
or we simply don't care about anyone's needs

The greatest day we will find
is when we unfold the love in our mind
when we cure violence of all kind
we can peacefully learn to unwind

What greater deed can there be
when all people can finally see
the words sung in such a great song
It's a pity, you don't sing along

Cliches or Where have You Been All My Life

When I was young, I fantasized of the girl I’d like to find:
A certain look, a sense of style, enlightened education,
Alluring eyes, a charming smile, and some sophistication.
But over time I realized she was only in my mind.

Lonely years passed, I compromised, and left my dream behind.
Met some with looks, others with style—even sophistication.
But I never could find, through error and trial, just the right combination.
Just existing, I felt demoralized, in a sorry state of mind.

One day by chance, I met this girl…sort of what I had in mind.
The way she looked, I realized, just fit my illustration—
As if the dream I’d idolized was brought into creation.
What could I say, to meet the girl that I’d always hoped to find?

Pardon the clichés, but I have to say 
“Where have you been all my life?”
I know we’ve just met, and you don’t know me yet, 
But what are you doing the rest of your life?

She rolled her eyes, but then she smiled, as she seemed to see the light.
We talked a while, then talked some more; got her address and her phone.
Since then I’ve seen her a whole lot more.  I no longer felt alone.
When I proposed, she said with a smile “I think I’ve found  my ‘Mister Right’ .

Pardon the clichés, but I have to say 
“Where have you been all my life?”
I know we’ve just met, and you don’t know me yet, 
But what are you doing the rest of your life?

The Millionth Dollar 

Charlaxes Fables 

Some people live in misery afraid to spend a dollar bill is one a friend but he just 
won't let it go. The man walks or rides his bike even in the snow not using public 
transportation anywhere he goes. A Child is young too young to knoe just what 
money's for. She takes the dollar in her hand and keeps it never spending it and 
never letting go. 
Song 1001 
Aern't ewe the one that eye love 
Aern't ewe the love the only love that eye have 
Aern't ewe the one that eye love 
Aern't ewe the reason this man gets up 
Aren't ewe the love that eye have 
Aern't ewe the purple cloud 
Aern't ewe the heart of the rain 
Aren't ewe the name in the sky? 
Aren't you the song 1001? 
Aern't eye the one? 
The millionth dollar has been spent the millionth tear eye cried the millionth time 
eye tried to make a song was this one number one thousand one. Time will wait 
for no one let us rule the time with love.

THE COYOTE SONG

       THE COYOTE SONG
I'm just a poor lonesome cowboy.
Ridin' my pinto, out on the prairie.
I'm Roundin' up these longhorn, all day long,
Me and my pinto, and my rusty six-gun.

I love a redhead from Philly.
She got some eyes, that really turn me on.
She plays with all the  cowboys all night long,
Guess I'll shoot myself with my rusty six-gun.

Sing me a sad song Coyote!
Sing a sad song for me.
Yippy-Ki-Yo! Coyote!
Sing your sad song for me.

I'm just a poor lonesome cowboy.
Livin life in my Levys til its done.
I know that redhead won't remember my name,
But I'll always have my old rusty six-gun.

Sing me a sad song Coyote!
Sing a sad song for me.
Yippy-Ki-Yo! Coyote!
Sing your sad song for me.

I love your howlin, but your sound is as sad as can be.
If I had my druthers, I'druther have that red head sing to me.

Sing me a sad song Coyote!
Sing a sad song for me.
Yippy-Ki-Yo! Coyote!
Sing your sad song for me.

Yippy-Ki-Yo! coyote!
Yippy-KiYo! For me!


...........TO HEAR THIS wonderful song and see the video, go to youtube.com and do a search for veebdosa......then select coyote. Enjoy and YES those are REAL coyotes singing in the song....

Till My Ticker Expires

Work seven till five		
To stay off the street.
When I do overtime		
Come home dead on my feet.
Seems month after month	
Can afford less to eat.
When they raise my rent--	
Could be out on the street.

My car’s fairly new;		
Got a decent TV.
My home has a view.		
The bank owns them, not me.
I went back to school,		
Got another degree.
Still work like a fool		
'cause of the ‘conomy.

Ain’t yet had a raise		
Since the day I was hired.
Each check buys me less.	
Cost-of-living gets higher.
My one biggest fear’s		
That I’ll never retire.
I’ll be working somewhere	
‘til my ticker expires.

Ain’t yet had a raise.		
Come home dead on my feet.
Each check buys me less-- 	
Can afford less to eat.
My one biggest fear,		
Since the day I was hired:
I’ll be doin’ overtime		
Until my ticker expires.

Surfboard City

Surfboard City, party town.
There's enough girls to go around.

Surfboard City, party town.
There's enough time to party down.

Find a wave, then find the tide.
Find a wave that you can ride.

Surfboard City, party town.
There's enough waves to go around.

Find a blond.With big blue eyes.
You might find.They match the skies.

Surfboard City, party town.
There's enough girls to go around.

Find a wave, then find the tide.
Find a wave that you can ride.

Surfboard City, party town.
There's enough waves to go around.

Find a blond.With big blue eyes.
You might find.They match the skies.

Surfboard City, party town.
There's enough girls to go around.

Surfboard City, party town.

Surfboard City, party down..

Little Crazy

Gonna get a little crazy
Gonna get a little loud
Gonna rock this f-in city
Gonna rock this f-in crowd

Got some rhythm in these guitars
Got some beat upon these drums
Gonna get you all a rockin
Gonna party with you scums

We don't need a light show
We don't need no props
We're just gonna play the music
We're never gonna stop

I feel the music in me
Getting louder by the chord
I feel the joint a jumpin
Gonna slay them with my sword

Gonna get a little crazy
Gonna get a little loud
Gonna rock this f-in city
Gonna rock this f-in crowd

Got some rhythm in these guitars
Got some beat upon these drums
Gonna get you all a rockin
Gonna party with you scums

Come Running

You're incredible, in all you do
So spectacular, this is true
We're inseparable, I'm here to stay
I think I might, love you today

Yesterday, I fell in love with you
This much is true
Want to spend my life with you
Yes I do

You come a running when I call
You come a running when I fall
You come a calling when I'm down
You come a calling let's settle down

My love is here for you
My heart is too
My mind craves for you
Your soul too

I write songs for you
when you're blue
I sing along with you
It's deja vu 

Yesterday, I fell in love with you
This much is true
Want to spend my life with you
Yes I do

I'll come a running when you call
I'll come a running when you fall
I'll come calling when your down
I'll come calling let's settle down

Lady-Luck Stomped Out

I was riding a streak with the dice in my fist.   
Lady Luck was with me, seemed  I couldn’t miss!
Then this babe caught my eye,--I crapped out time and again.  
Lady Luck stomped out, when True Love walked in.

I was anchoring third with a pair of aces.  
Going for the split,  needed tens or faces.
But when ‘you know who’ sat down next to me, 
The blackjack dealer dealt a two and a three!

Lady Luck stomped out when True Love walked in. 
She gave me that look.  I sent her my best grin.
I’m gonna go bust if I see her again.  
Lady Luck stomped out when True Love walked in.

I put a dollar chip on every black and red. 
Three spins in a row came up zeros instead.
The old croupier said:  “Son I’ve seen this before.  
You better take that gal to the chapel next door!”

Lady Luck stomped out when True Love walked in. 
She gave me that look.  I sent her my best grin..
I’m gonna lose my shirt when I see her again.  
Lady Luck stomped out when True Love walked in.

I kept the Queen of Hearts and folded all my hands, 
And never set foot in a casino again.
When the urge to play overpowers me –
It's Yahtzee, Trouble, and Monopoly.

(To add insult to injury, our kids always win, you know!)

Lady Luck stomped out when True Love walked in. 
She gave me that look.  I sent her my best grin..
I haven’t won a hand since that fatal day when 
Lady Luck stomped out and True Love walked in.

Foullen -Part Two-

-Kaz walks in the room slowly his hair hanging in his face wiping his forehead with the back of his hand- Hello Foullen, Have you had a chance to feed yet today ?
Foullen-he turns around standing far from Kaz-
Kaz- ilove you. -He gets up walking towards the direction in which Foullen was smiling alittle- You bit me and it set off sparks Im mesmerised by you and your existance I let you feed because i cant stand anything happening to you. I love you
Foullen-quickly turns around looking at Kaz-
Kaz-He stands directly in front of him touching Foullen on the cheek looking in his eyes-
Foullen-he quickly grabbed his things, fastly opening the door walking out into the woods-
Kaz-he runs out following him- Foullen!
Foullen-he walks faster not turning around as he huffs out the door-
Kaz-he contines to go after him sprinting and following him closely still calling out to him- Foullen!
Foullen-he turns around his eyes glowing a bright bright blue- "what!"
Kaz-Why are you running? You had a sparkle in your eye when i told you i loved you, and now your running. what is going on?
Foullen-he would mumble something under his breathe and begins to talk louder- " eh um idk, no one has said that before, how was i suppose to react? happy?" -he closed his eyes and sighed as if he failed-
Kaz-Im sorry if it upset you but its the reason i keep coming back, I keep coming for you. -he grabed his arm lightly in a comforting manner-
Kaz-He kisses him gently- I dont want to let you go ever -He whispered softly in Foullens ear after their lips parted-
Foullen-he turned away from Kaz and started to walk away-
Kaz-He got up going towards Foullen wrapping his arms around the vampires chest from behind-
Foullen-"im nothing you want" -he unwraps Kaz's arms from his chest and pushes him away-
Kaz-You are what I want exactly in fact. Your strong and beautiful, and you make me smile inside. I want nothing else but you.
Foullen-"many people come up to me saying that, how do i know your not any different?" -he sighed looking down-
Kaz-Well, Ive followed you thus far, and I keep advancing admist all of you attepmts to push me away. And i know you felt something when you kissed me. Im here for the long hull, and I know im not perfect and never will be but I aspire to be as perfect as I can for you. And even when we fight to the point of crying, I wanna be the one to hold you, and try my best to protect you in whatever way i can.

(Stay tuned for Part Three)

Haunting

Every night I go to bed,
And you always end up inside my head,
I can't take a single breath,
With your figure beside my bed.

Now I can't sleep,
Your voice keeps kissing me,
And I can't dream,
With you beside me.

You're gone,
But you keep haunting me.
Everywhere I go,
You're right behind me.
You're driving me insane,
Because your voice is haunting my brain.

And I am bleeding.
All these signs,
I thought were leading,
Are just a bunch of,
Lies...

You take my breath away.
Boy.
But I am just shame to you.
Boy.
I can't take this anymore.
Boy.
My body has just hit the floor!

You're gone,
But you keep haunting me.
Everywhere I go,
You're right behind me.
You're driving me insane,
Because your voice is haunting my brain.

I can't take this,
Haunting.
It continues to,
Scare me.
I'm so scared I'm,
Crying.
And I don't want to take this,
Everything I wanted,
Is gone.

You're gone,
But you keep haunting me.
Everywhere I go,
You're right behind me.
You're driving me insane,
Because your voice is haunting my brain.

Dreams are dreamt.
I'm just not so content.
With myself anymore.
And this,
Haunting,
Has,
Killed me...

Do You Wanna

I'm going crazy
I'm going insane
Heard all the stories
That I'm to blame

I no longer listen
I no longer hear
I've turned the corner
You've disappeared

Many years have passed me by
Now it's time that I came alive

Do you wanna go out late
Do you wanna have a second date
Do you wanna  another ride
Do you wanna come inside

A million wishes
A thousand dreams
Another chapter
In life for me

I'm feeling happy 
I've found my way
A little freedom
It's Independence Day

Many years have passed me by
Now it's time that I came alive

Do you wanna go out late
Do you wanna have a second date
Do you wanna  another ride
Do you wanna come inside

Do you wanna take a stroll
Do you wanna rock and roll
Do you wanna scream and shout
Do you wanna go make out

First Dance

Would you like to dance with me, and feel my arms around your waist?
Maybe our lips could brush together, to give each other a little taste.
Let us always remember this song as we the others around us far behind.
Now we can move amongst the stars above, no worries of space and time.

As I gaze into your eyes, I get lost in your stare.
Finding myself gasping for breath, I seem lost of air.
The warmth of your embrace makes me lightheaded on this night.
That smile which warms my heart, you are such a beautiful sight.
Here there is no deception, no pain, or reason to cry.
I wish you could see yourself looking through my eyes.

The first dance is almost over as the melody soon will end.
Yes this song may soon be over, as the first of many now begins.
Your gaze near keeps me steady as I drink in the smell of your perfume.
Drunk with so many emotions, my senses opened up like flowers in bloom.
No, more wishful thinking as you’re standing with me here.
I’ll always have this feeling; it will be with me all my years.
Let’s keep all the emotions overflowing, and hold them deep inside.
We can explore all the thoughts we have for each other, sharing this journey we call life.
A passion that won’t die, with this energy never to end.
A little message I had to let you know, one I knew I had to send.

Farewell

Breathless and falling ...                (Breathless and falling)
So lucent the vapor
The morning star's fluent light...     (She's now collapsed)
Brightens the day...
Indolent, flurry winds...                 (Take away her agony)
Fluster the vacant sky;
Harmless; devoid of the Earth...
Tranquil, but restless...                  (Tranquil, but restless)
in clustering glory
Sullen though crystal...                  (She's now collapsed)
In weeping for man...
High above gazing...                      (High above)
In garments of wonder
In union their eyes watch in pain... (Take away her agony)

Octogenarian clinging to life
Caught in a whirlwind of odious
Strife
Caught in the currents that pull
From below
Holding her down but she dying
Slow

Fa la la, Fa la la, 
Falling from her Peace
She's now collapsed
Farewell, Farewell, Farewell.

Till Ragnorak Comes

From Valhalla’s fortress of spears and shields,	
Valkyrie riders make their daily runs…
Crossing Bifrost to Midgard’s battlefields,		
Harvesting warriors till Ragnorak comes.

Flying from Valhalla on their war horses,	
Thundering hooves beat like old battle drums,
Odin’s blond daughters watching the forces--	
Harvesting warriors till Ragnorak comes.

Legionnaires, Pikemen, Hussars and Spartans;      
Storm Troopers, Crusaders and Saracens;
Musketeers, Vikings, and Gladiators;		
Watusi, Cossacks, and Conquistadors.
As long as men hear the sounds of war drums,
	
They’ll harvest the best till Ragnorak comes.
Valkyries search for those to stand vanguard,   
Recruiting  Odin’s Einherjar armies.
Warriors pass Valgrind to live in Asgard--		
Honored to be served by the Valkyries.

Hoplites, Commandoes, and Mujahideens;		
Samurais, Yeomen, and US Marines;
Guerrilas, Dragoons, and Panzer Tankers;
Grenadiers, Mamelukes, and Bezerkers.
As long as men hear the sounds of war drums,
Valkyries harvest till Ragnorak comes.

Ascending Amygdala

The human being…
Who is worthy to bestow this title or its meaning…?
Mortal beginners naming us damned sinners…
Begotten is this son; created in the image, the human being the Holy Grail…
Inquisitions; manipulations cloaking divine knowing with a consuming veil…

My soul sings the truth of your wisdom…
Joyous the song of the kingdom…
I breathe you in from the breeze; touching your essence communing with trees…
I have been alive here before…
Sailing the seas while walking the shores…
Feeling the wealth of love and life all the while considered poor…

Advance intuition understanding the power of cognition…
Focused attention paired with reasoning, will and concentration…
Abilities from the divine; creating the human magician…
Thwarted from dogmatic idiocies…
Perception of proper perspective; Cloned are individual and collective frequencies…
Reality manifesting from our visuals and emotion feelings…
Hence the need for spirit based emotional healing…

My soul sings from trusting your wisdom…
Joyous the song of the kingdom…
We have been lied to about god, now is my own divine conceiving…
I breathe you in from gratitude, giving and receiving…
I have been alive here before; making green tea, cleansing soiled floors…
Feeling the wealth of love and life all the while considered poor…

I am that I am…
Spirit, light and matter…
Free to be me; using my inner eye to see…
Living from passion love and enthusiasm…
Remaining unattached to the created human cataclysm…

My soul sings from knowing your wisdom…
Joyous the song of the kingdom…
Individualized drops of the divine ocean
I breathe you in from making sacred loves unconditional devotion…
I have been alive here before; walking on water, pray believing…
Feeling the wealth of love and life all the while considered poor…

You Light Up My Radar

There’s something inside me that knows when you’re nearby.
You cannot sneak up on me; it’s funny when you try.
There must be something in the air, a noise without a sound,
‘Cause you light up my radar whenever you’re around.

I can taste your presence before you pass the door,
And I can smell you’re essence from clear across the floor.
I can always feel where you are--we’re mutually bound,
‘Cause you light up my radar whenever you’re around.

Chorus (repeated to fade after 4th verse):
The lightest caress of your touch makes my ringers ring
The first impression of your voice makes me want to sing
The very first hint of your taste or scent makes my motor start
‘Cause even the smallest whisper of your presence melts my heart.

I don’t need to see you, to feel when you are there.
There’s just something about you that makes me so aware.
No matter how lost you think you are, with me you’re always found--
‘Cause you light up my radar whenever you’re around.

Decades passed together.  There weren’t enough years.
Though love may be forever, we buried you in tears.
Your presence seems everywhere, without a sight or sound,
You still light up my radar ‘cause you’re always around.

Sunny

Sunny and the boys wanna play
Couple of smokes, drinks and okay
And all their lives questioning fate
Chasing after the cats milk on any given date

Well the wind was harsh and unforgiven
Broke through their lies; too late for mending
All the black of night will see their sins
Moon will glimmer off their teeth and shins

Vodka and champagne won't ease the pain
But it'll make it easy--yeah it'll make 
Life seem livable along with the songs 
Some chiefs off a bong

Banging rhythms of the night life
Some doses of invincibility keeps them high
Vodka and champagne it's starting again
Yeah its starting again 

The stench of repetition eats at their souls
Unscathed fear this is how we'll die old
Gentle men of night they call themselves
Turning back to scoundrels at the sound of a bell

Would You Be My Muse

Are you looking for someone to inspire?
Do you fancy being one’s object of desire?
Do you want to be the spark that sets my world on fire?
In other words, would you like to be my Muse?

There’s a vacancy on my pedestal
For someone more divine than terrestrial;
Or someone like you—almost celestial.
How about it—would you like to be my Muse?

Chorus
You could be the entity that brings out my creativity,
Give nuance and subtlety to the rhymes in my poetry,
And bridge my melody with polyphonic harmony.
You could light the fuse that sparks my art with tints and hues.
Together we could never lose… if you’d only be my Muse.

In return for being my inspiration
You’ll have my devotion and veneration,
And be named in all my dedications.
If you’d be my beloved Muse.

Your song

( dedicated to James Dalton Byrd and to his song "Old Man)

I cannot listen to your song,
It is too beautiful and sad.
Your voice so is pleasant and kind,
Like at good friend.
Indeed you are very far -
The big ocean is between us!
There is too much sorrow 
and only a few friends In my life.
Good luck despises me.
Bad problems laugh at me.
My hope is tired by my tears.
But your song tries to protect me
From my sorrow and problems,
To remind me of the fine friend for my soul
And to ask my hope to not abandon me.

Give Me An Idea

Give me a thoughtful image 
That I can reveal in black and white,
Or with tints and shades of colors 
Using pastels, ink, or graphite.
Even the most common thing 
Can seem to be introspective
When rendered with clever shading 
Or seen from a different perspective.
 
Find me a new metaphor, 	
Or a novel unused simile—
Something like alliteration	 
To bring to life my poetry.
Help me write some plays on words,  
Or a sentimental nuance,
That would appeal to those lovebirds 
That see the world through the lens of romance.

Inspire me with lyrics 
And clever rhymes that tell a story.
Then hum a new chord progression	 
That would support a melody.
Add guitar riffs and a hook 
That surprise like an epiphany.
Bind them together like a book:  
A multi-genre fusion symphony.

(Chorus)
Give me an idea worthy of a drawing, poem, or song;
Something inspiring enough to push creativity along.
Something interesting enough to fire the synapses in my brain.
Something provocative enough to make all stop and look again.

Can We Turn Back The Time

(female verse 1) staring up at the darkened sky, stars come out lighting it up so bright who knew I’d be standing here alone after all we had now you’re gone You took my heart when you fled now I’m broken and empty, you left me in shreds why did you choose to go guess that’s the answer I’ll never know (male verse 2) staring up at your darkened eye, scars come out cutting it up so tight who knew I’d be standing here alone after all went bad now you’ve won You tore me apart with words you said now I’m broken and empty, you left me for dead why did you choose to go guess that’s the answer we’ll never know (chorus duet) Our love will last longer, together we’re stronger We can turn back the time, and change the past (Her) Can we turn back the time, (Him) Can we turn back the time (Her) Can we turn back the time, (Him) Can we turn back the time (verse 3) (Her) Staring out at the sparkling sky, stars come out to our heart’s delight (duet) Who knew we’d be standing together we have a love that lasts forever (Him) You fill me up with love in my heart your hand in mine never far apart (duet) that’s why I choose you love is the answer we’ll always know (chorus duet) Our love will last longer, together we're stronger We can turn back the time and change the past (Her) Can we turn back the time, (Him) Can we turn back the time (Her) Can we turn back the time, (Him) Can we turn back the time (duet) Our love will last longer, together we’re stronger (Her) Can we turn back the time, (Him) Can we turn back the time x4 written by Warner Baxter and Elizabeth McBride One Knight Stand Productions all rights reserved

In The Haze

Clear summer nights, when it’s still arm outside, I lay in bed and think of you.
Old summer days, from another time and place; I had a younger point of view.
Time heals old wounds if we let them, but only if we can forget them, 
And leave them in the haze.
 
Old pictures fade, no reason to be saved, especially of me and you.
Remember when – old things were different then.  Too late, nothing left to do.
Time heals old wounds if we let them, but only if we can forget them, 
And leave them in the haze.
 
Birght summer morns.   After I’ve locked the doors,  I leave my car and earn my pay...
Till five-o-one, when I’ve clocked out and I’m gone.  My mind slips back to another day.
Time heals old wounds if we let them, but only if we can forget them, 
And leave them in the haze.

Drifting

Set aside on a whimsical ride,
to drift the day away ,
pole in the water;  
but it doesn't matter, 
if a fish catches my hook along the way.
I'll just enjoy the travel, 
that will make me unravel,
months of cooped up dismay.
To recapture me,
to punctuate my being,
in a world that keeps me at bay.
I escape into the scenery,
of the foliage and greenery,
cottonwoods, yucca and sage.
Drifting along, 
to a whispering song,
of a youth;  all but,  passed away.
Glistening leaves, 
above on the trees,
as my squinty eyes capture the way.
I dream of when,
I'll be here again,
and this time maybe I'll stay.

Trying To Find That Groove

I just wrote another song--I’ve got the lyrics and the chords.
It’s not too short, nor too long, and the melody fits the words.
The majors and minors flow into a nice chord progression,
And there’s a sexy, slow, Latin beat to add a touch of passion.
 
I’ve not yet made a solo that will dazzle our rock star;
I’ll have the guitar-hero write something for lead guitar.
The drums and rhythm guitar both have parts that came out easy.
But it’s always the bass guitar that has the part that drives me crazy.

The bass guitarist is the guy that makes the band earn its money.
His job is to unify the rhythm, melody, and harmony.
He sets up the next chords for the keyboards and guitars to play—
Ever leading the band forward, rather than watching them run astray.
 
Chorus (after verses 2 & 3):
I’m trying to find that groove—the one that gets you on your feet,
The one that makes you want to move and boogie in the street.
I’m trying to find that groove, that catchy riff, that walking beat,
That makes all the other grooves sound like something obsolete.

I WONDER IF ZEBRA TASTES THE SAME AS HORSEMEAT


HEY CJ….. EVER SEENG IN SEENGAPORE?

I heard you sing in Singapore
And begged thee to sing some more
And so thy song traversed lips of red
A lullaby you sang until I lay my head to bed\

Oh to Singapore your words poured forth in virtuosity and in voice
‘Twas a twist of fate that fate had no other fateful choice
And so you sang fluidly and ne’re dare distractions
While the musical mosaic and your voice were the main attractions

Then Singapore stilled its clappers and silenced all the bells
As each listener was entranced by divergent spells
One was my being mystified by your beauty and beatitude combined
While other men had visions of he and you meandering in his mind

Thusly did Singapore and I beg for one more enchanting song
And on  that Asian stage is where a lovely like you should belong
Quite frankly my dear it’s your silhouette and song I cannot ignore
And the perfect part is whenever you agree to sing some more in Singapore

TELEPATHY

A parcel came to my address
But it was wrapped in colorful papers.
It looks so splendid.
  With card of value a hard board tagged.
Gift offered indeed.
Where love of ray sets smile for a long.
 Gift is a book of song.
She knows that I can sing a song with tune of melody.
When searched song of melancholy.
Her splendid gift wrapped with colorful paper reached to long.
She knew it very well that splendid gift will be book of song.
When my mail will be reach for receipt of gift.
Will whispers to friends and colleagues that my song will be broadcast.
A gain letter will come to telecast.
S he will be near television to look me fast.

Song On The Breeze

She was born high on the mountain top
Where the soul stays pure and free
She sang everyday from the mountain top
Her voice was carried away on the breeze
The sweet angel voice floated- to the valley below
Where the Ranger was walking the street
Alone he would walk to serve and protect
The valley from the darkness it would meet
He was a white noble knight,in a black leather vest
He was the last of a rare hero’s breed
Then one day he heard the voice on the breeze

It sang, 
Follow your heart and you’ll find you way home
No need to walk through the valley alone
Just search and you’ll find the Angel Divine
And love from the mountain crest high 
Just follow the song on the breeze

He searched all around as he walked through the town
But the sweet voice was nowhere to be found
Then the darkness rolled in and he was at again
Trying to save the innocent souls of the town
He forgot the sweet voice as he followed the noise
Of  horses and the  bandits  escape
He followed them high through the mountains they climbed
Until he caught them at the top near the edge
He fought hard and proud and he captured them all
His heart beating strong when justice prevailed
He was turning around to take them to town
When he heard the sweet voice on the breeze

It sang,
You followed your heart and you found your way home
No need to return to the darkness of valley again
You searched and you found your  Angel Divine
And the love that was sent down from me
Now follow the song on the breeze 

He sent the prisoners away with the Deputy Shane
He said he won’t be walking the dark streets anymore 
The voice on the breeze has called out to me 
From this place where my soul is at peace 
He turned then to see the voice from the breeze
And the love in his sweet Angels eyes

Through These Eyes

Through These Eyes
By Kevin Robey
June 12, 2013

I've realized
These smile lines
Are hypnotized
Through tired eyes

Make it whole
The heart you stole
No light is shone
I feel alone

Promises made
False serenades
Refusing to see
The space between

Cannot believe
How you and me
Endure the solstice
Of lonely nights

Let’s cut out the need for silence
My past now can only make sense
Seeing the honesty through these eyes
I can’t bear to have this pain disguised

My haunted past
Covered in glass
These gaping wounds
Re-opened soon

Accessories
And memories
Are what I have
To take me back

It’s only fair
These strands of hair
Will get too long
To sing our song

But could it be
Coming misery
Will like a tower
Wash to the sea?

Could we see hope float to the surface
And seal our doubts in this sarcophagus?
Could we see through the pain in these eyes
The silver lining through these trying times?

It’s not easy
To really see
Maybe this hope
Leaves me alone

I blankly stare
Through longer hair
Return this heart
From mountain air

We’ll understand
When holding hands
That what we own
Can hold up stone

From here on out
I’ll quell my doubt
Through painted lines
That speed up time

It’s only a matter of time
It’s only a matter of time
Before I hold you again
And bright eyes realign

*listening to...*
["growing old is getting old" by Silversun Pickups]

Carel

I’ve been saying
Saying I’ve been on my own
And I’ve been saying
Saying I’m all alone
Don’t wanna be away
Away from your holidays

Yesterday it snowed
Somehow we lifted a lighter load
And I wandered
I wonder where you went
The beauty in fallen leaves 
The bronze and auburn tint
Shaded by a breeze

I’ve been saying
Saying I’ve been on my own
And I’ve been saying
Saying I’m all alone
Don’t wanna be away
Away from your holidays

I’ve cursed my aptitude
Stranded 
And to no one I allude
What more is there to prove
A warm touch is something I could use
I used to say, “I don’t know how to lose”
But lately I’m walking in everyone else’s shoes

I’ve been saying
Saying I’ve been on my own
And I’ve been saying
Saying I’m all alone
Don’t wanna be away
Away from your holidays

My holiday song this year
I’ve brought myself away from tears
The cold, it chills my bones
But my stones are rolling home

"a song i wrote to john mayers "waiting""

Original of the Doc wearing fist cuffing angels

Baby don't walk away
It's true that the beginning is better than the end
Please hold that smile somewhere in your heart

I will give you everything that you need
Except all that you are and will be
Cause you are the first one of your kind

And you were born with Docs already on
Smiling right under their eyes
And I see you with your fist ready to fight
Well I'll take the whole of what you got
And I want nothing else tonight

Everywhere you go I see you screaming about it
And no one accuses you of being shy about it

Somethings you shouldn't have to do alone
Like sleeping, waking and eating
Some people got way too much on their plate

I would give you everything that you need
Except all that you are and will be
Cause you are the first one of your kind

And you were born with Docs already on
Smiling right under their eyes
And I see you with your fist ready to fight
Well I'll take the whole of what you got
And I want nothing else tonight

Everywhere you go I see you screaming about it
And no one accuses you of being shy about it
You'll never be alone, no
So sugar come on show us those soles
You've been wearing out when you collect the toll

Everywhere you go I see you screaming about it
And no one accuses you of being shy about it
Everywhere you go I see you screaming about it

And you were born with Docs already on
Smiling right under their eyes
And I see you with your fist ready to fight
Well I'll take the whole of what you got
The whole of what you got, the whole of what you got

Illusions

Can I tell the times 
Or count how many little good-byes

Well we try to say we know what is love
Then once we fail, swear it wasn't from above

In the still of a tear drop down
When you look up I'll still be around

But not for you; no not even for a minute
There's no need to feel obliged why are you still grinning

So yeah, there's a chance you may hate me one day
But lets be honest that day already came

       So far and beyond
       I'll give you my all
       I'm not there to take the call
       So I feel the need to stall
       Come one, come all 
       Ain't love a ball
       That flies up and never drops
       Ain't we had enough
       Of saying we know anything anymore

Nature's Chant

Oh song of life,
Hears animals croon their mating chant.  
Oh song of life,
Resonates precisely, no strife.
Passions of love never recant. 
Sounds vocalized bound to enchant.
Oh song of life,

Nature’s mantra,  
Flora and fauna greet life's fate.
Nature’s mantra,
Guiding all living by karma.
Sweet chants that through the woods vibrate.
As per Mother Nature’s dictate.
Nature’s mantra!

Foullen -Part One-

A mansion sitting upon a hill
Two men walking apart from eachother
One is part human the other is creature
Kaz, Half elf and half human
He walks slowly in the woods 
Kicking stones as he walks
His hands gripping the inside of his pockets
He feels something coming

Walking slowly behind him
Sniffing his scent
Foullen,  a full blooded vampire
Pale skin, blue eyes that sparkle when his black long hair falls upon his face
He wraps his arm around Kaz's waist 
Pulling him backwards
He places his lips unto Kaz's neck
Sinking his fangs into him
Kaz trying to get away
Foullen holds him down

Once he is done feeding 
He pushes the human to the ground
Only sniffing his human scent not even knowing about his elf half
He runs off leaving Kaz in pain on the ground

He would smirk looking back as he runs
Running into the mansion
Slamming the door behind him
He would say hello to his mother
And sit perfectly in his chair
Wipping the blood from his teeth

A few hours later 
A man knocks at the door
Foullen would answer smelling a familiar scent
He lets him in seeing the wound on this mans neck

He would softly say hello holding his hand out and smirks at Kaz
"Hello Kaz" He would say
Kaz looks up at him "you know who i am?"
Foullen would speak "Yea i did drink your blood after all, you have been a target for some time, i always had an eye on you... you always seemed special-
Kaz looks up at him confused "me?"

Many days would pass and many conversations were held between Foullen and Kaz
But many do not know what was said all that was heard was Foullen and Kaz got close and became friends and over several years another journey between them would soon begin 

(stay tuned for part two)

i once shot a zebra in my pajamas how he got into my pajamas i'll never know

      
LISTEN TO MS. BELL CAST A SPELL

The chick can sing, dance and entertain
She’ll sing today’s hits and down memory lane
The lady’s voice is luxurious and so sublime
And of course her melody keeps perfect time

I watch her in awe as she wows a crowd
She’ll sing softly or belt a tune out loud
The woman will wail and set your heart afire
And when she’s done it’s another song you will desire

She’s desirous, delicate and quite demure
Yet and still when she’s done you’ll beg for more
“oh please, my sweet” you’ll beseech her to sing
Because she can sing, dance and do everything

Her talent is ambient, her voice so sweet
And with every song she turns up the heat
I watch her wiggle as all other men do too
And with every performance I hear her talent accrue

So if you want the best forget all the rest
Sit back, relax and listen at beauty’s behest
Her voice will ease your sorrow and pain
And as I said, the chick can sure entertain

my corncob pipe is wilted and tattered and torn are my shoes

my heart is a wilted flower in the murky waters of life
my heart is a wilted flower in the murky waters of life
i haven't been able to function since the last day my heart was beating right

i'm on the edge of insanity knocking on the hollow door of my brain
i'm on the edge of insanity knocking on the hollow door of my brain
i make my attempts in the snow, sleet, sun, moon, and rain

i'm gonna go make a request to old jackie frost herself

         I've got a fresh sheet  and   I'm on my way
        Not knowing for sure what I need to say.
         No matter it seems just as long as their out
         These feelings I've got that I want to shout
      So long theres been sorrow-so long now it seems
         It fills up my night times  and  invades my dreams
            No one can know the things deep inside
        I fake through each day and sometimes I've cried
      My soul has been tortured and chained for so long
           I ask you my lord, right here in my song     
       I know never worthy- but still singing this song
       I need to be patiant but how long must I wait
       My lifes passing by me, before it's too late.
       Oh lord I must ask you these chains you should break
        this soul thats been battered and beaten and crushed
        It now needs its freedom pulled out from the dust.
         Oh please hear me singing my voice fadeing fast
         Im afraid of the answers- to the questions I ask.

Babies Silenced

Hello abortion my old friend
I've come to you again__
Because a period not creeping
He left his seeds while I was sleeping
And the baby that was planted in my groin
Still remains
Within my fear of silence

In disturbed dreams I walked alone
Narrow streets of cobblestone
'Neath the halo of the moon lamp
I turn my heart to be cold and damp
When my eyes were struck by a flash of
Small insight
That split  my night
And touched my heart of silence

And in the night light I saw
Ten million babies maybe more
Babies crying with much weeping
People hearing without really caring
People writing names of murdered child never shared
For no one dared
Disturb the cry of silence

"Fools", said I, "Abortion kills
Silenced permanently babies still
Hear my words that I might nurture you
Take my arms that I might hold you
But my words like silent stardust fell
And echoed in the womb of silence

And some people bowed and prayed
To the God of love today
And the song flashed out it warning
In my words that song was forming
And the sign said, "The word of the prophets
Are written on peoples hearts
And that is a place to start
And they're whispered in the silence

Melancholy Eyes

By Kevin Robey
July 12, 2013

Verse 1
I’m sick of these melancholy eyes
That keep them away in the light
It’s not to invite an idolized disguise
In my mind where day turns to night

I wish that I could scream out loud
Tell them the truth behind these lies
Because these storm-filled clouds
Are ready to flood my blue skies

Drowning in the shelter I made
That I built upon the desert sand
So foolish to maintain this charade
It’s raining in this deserted land

Chorus
Now I’m sleeping in the weathered bed I made
I could have let them in, I could have been saved
I couldn’t risk my scarred heart, just let me fade
Lying awake at night while the rain fills my grave

Verse 2
Paralyzed by endless irrational fears
Despite reassuring embraces of my friends
I know this isn’t what they wanted to hear
My darkness more than they comprehend

So I shut them out, they leave me alone
I dig myself deeper than six feet under
Thought I was safe from the great unknown
Instead I’m blinded by approaching thunder

I don’t know what will become of me
But right now it doesn’t look promising
Hope can find light where my smile agrees
The shine that only blind faith can bring

Repeat Chorus 
Now I’m sleeping in the weathered bed I made
I could have let them in, I could have been saved
I couldn’t risk my scarred heart, just let me fade
Lying awake at night while the rain fills my grave

No Frills Girl

She always looked
A little bit out of the norm
Cruising down the street 
In her Geo Storm

One time
I asked her to give me five
Up high
She missed 
and slapped me dead in the eye

She wears wears a butt bag around her waist
It's so sad 
she's got bad 90's taste
But I guess 
I can kinda relate
That's why she's kinda cute 
in a corky kinda way

She's inside out to me
She wears her heart out on her sleeve
She's a simple beauty 
Do you see what I see?
She's a simple beauty

And the boys may say
There's not much about her on the outer
she's got no frills
But yet she's got me staring at her at a stand still

It crossed my mind to love her
and I think that I oughta
So don't throw the baby out with the bath water

Just like snow globes 
and kaleidoscopes
If you don't look inside
You'll miss the show

she's inside out to me
She wears her heart out
On her sleeve 
she's a simple beauty
Do you see what I see?
She's a simple beauty

She's got lips like morphine
Like Angelina Jolie 
porcelain skin
Like Nicole Kidman 
She's as cute as can be
Like Gwen Stefani 
she's sweet to my soul 
like Nora Jones 

she's inside out to me
She wears her heart out 
on her sleeve
She's a simple beauty
Do you see what I see?
She's a simple beauty

She's my No Frills girl
She's my No Frills Girl

Something Good

I woke up this morning feeling fine.
There's something special on my mind.
Last night I met a new girl in the neighborhood.
Something tells me I'm into something good.
She's the kind of girl whose not too shy,
and I could tell right away that I'm her kind of guy.
She danced close to me like I hoped she would.
Something tells me I'm into something good.
We only danced for a minute or two
then she stuck close to me the whole night through.
Can I be falling in love?
She's everthing that I've been dreaming of.
I walked her home and she held my hand.
I knew this couldn't be just a one night stand,
so I asked to see her next week and she told me I could.
Something tells me I'm into something good.
*
A Herman's Hermits song that is one of a kind.
I heard it this mornibg and couldn't get it off my mind.
Listen to the song if you would
and I challenge you not to feel anything but good.

Blaze the Skies

This journey of my dreams is everything I’ve waited for
It’s all wrapped up with strings
With sweat and tears, with joy and pain
Through hills and valleys I have come
A thousand dreams I dared to dream
I stand here in this time and place
Where stars are born to blaze the skies

Blaze the skies with your life
We live each day and weave our dreams
Each life is a song that must be sung
As stars are born to blaze the skies

When I recall the years, the many fears, the hidden tears
The solid walls unseen 
The rocky road, the times I fell
The yearning grew, the struggles too
A million stars have shone their lights
Along the way to where I am
Where stars are born to blaze the skies

Blaze the skies with your life
We live each day and weave our dreams
Each life is a song that must be sung
As stars are born to blaze the skies

I’ll soar with touching songs that warm the heart that feed the soul
To heights beyond the stars, 
And light the path for all who dream
Who know the laughter and the pain
To give each song its wings to fly
To a higher place in the universe
Where stars are born to blaze the skies

My Zumba Queen's world

Are you sure that you don't mind me going to Zuum-ba;
I can easy stay at home dear, if you like?   (cha cha cha)
I'll just sit down over there and put my face on,
Y’know, the one that looks like someone’s stole my bike (cha cha cha)

It seems I can't remember life before the Zuum-ba;
Things must have been so very, very drab;  (cha cha cha)
No music, no singing and no dancing;
A bit like watching Antiques Road Show with my dad. (cha cha cha)

And now my music taste has changed so much since Zuum-ba,
I just cannot get enough of Latin beat; (cha cha cha)
The mere fact that I cannot understand them
Does mean nothing whatsoever to my feet. (cha cha cha)

Well, I don’t think I could live without my Zuum-ba.
This new life has turned a very special key, (cha cha cha)
And I don't care what you say, I’m not for changing,
You’ll just have to live these hours without me. (cha cha cha)

I would rather be out with my pals from Zuum-ba,
With the music that has set my spirit free, (cha cha cha)
Than simply being home with my dear husband,
Where the only thing he cares about is me. (cha cha cha)

Now it seems that I must give up on my  Zuum-ba;
I’ve sciatica, enough to drive me mad, (cha cha cha)
As those three times every week drove my fitness past its peak,
And now my hubby has me back, he’s smugly glad. (cha cha cha)

Angels Don't Sing the Blues

Sent down from Heaven, their jobs are sure tough
But they don’t fly away when the going gets rough
They rise to the challenge to bring back wonder and hope
Failure does not happen in their line of work
Cuz’ Angels, no Angels,  they don’t sing the blues

Angels sing strong from the high mountain tops
Sometimes it’s a rock song to wake spirits up
Sometimes it’s a ballad when babies must sleep
Or a love song in country that just makes you weep
But Angels, no Angels, don’t sing the blues

They work behind the scenes to enlighten world faith
Always there when you need’em, our Heavenly base
They make house calls to heal another broken heart
Gatekeepers to the soul, they lighten the dark
The sky is the limit as only Angels can know

When times are a troubling,  their first on the scene
Not afraid to help out or even dirty their wings
The tune that they dance to, comes from Heaven above
Giving rhythm and gospel to everyone they love
Cuz’ Angels, no Angels,  they don’t sing the blues

And you know Angels can’t read music,
but they sure wing it well
As they learn from the Almighty,
Who swings with, the heartbeat of humanity,
From Heavens high hill

Angels sing strong from the high mountain tops
Sometimes it’s a rock song to wake spirits up
Sometimes it’s a ballad when babies must sleep
Or a love song in country that just makes you weep
But Angels, no Angels, don’t sing the blues

They just don’t sing the blues
No, Angels don’t sing the blues
Angels don’t sing the blues

False Awakening

Your hair is the golden rays of sunshine
That whisper through the window
The dust that glows around the moon at night
The crimson clouds of sundown
That give birth to the evening
Your smile that hides the shadows out of sight

I fall into forever, never to remember
The butterfly that wakes into a dream
But that's my truth to swallow, at least until tomorrow
When night returns this king unto his queen

And so a secret kiss
Brings madness and a taste of bliss
Your every charming word turns my world a little more
Then silently its drawn
The shadow on the wall
The moonlight hits your eyes my disguise falls to the floor

Dance me to the music that's playing in my head
Everytime I see you
That's my wish for tomorrow, and I shall wait in sorrow
Til night returns this king unto his queen

across the line my version

in this sandsea
of darkness
lieing with a pain across his cheast
pretending he is heartless
as a fire flashes from the sky
he was fragile
and frozen
when paranioa took away his friend
and now he is somehow more broken

he is the waiting for the end of his demise
holding onto all of his goodbyes
holding his fate across the line

slowly
breaking
lieing with a pain across her chest
she wakes with her craving
as the fire burns her eye
she was fragile
and frozen
when deaths grip took away her friend
and now shes somehow more broken

she is waiting for the end of her demise 
holding onto all of her goodbyes
holding death across the line

*this is a song by linkin park off the underground album but i did alter it somewhat i 
did not create the song only changed some of the lyrics*

Blinded By Love

Leasing, Michigan

memories are like mistletoe
kiss them well and let them weep 
after all it's the subtle things 
we fail to keep
 
living like the poison seeps 
lay awake just to fall asleep
laughing like you meant it  
despair marks martyrs, 
no contest

painting my soul on the chapels 
of sixteen shadows 
it's the beauty we come to confess
drifting away 
on the late side of michigan 
holding on to a widow 
like you're forever missing her

i feel your shadow
i know your leaving 
it's getting closer
i know we're not suppose to 

memories don't respond to infatuation 
and melody's don't mock the sad 
tickles, trickle down like shame 
smiling like you're right where you belong

a moment here and a moment there
we were just a moment outside of home
thinking back like
time always leaves you alone
 
hiding in the shadows 
moving like there was no atmosphere 
vividly free falling 
no here-after calling 

you touch rivers
like the rush given
failed to deliver 
cursing labor 
like the child 
failed it's savior 

we were just moving along 
i hear thats all you can do 
holding on to the pain 
trying to make it last 
as long as you need it to 

i know your leaving
i feel your shadow 
it's getting closer
i know we're not suppose to

THERE YOU STOOD GIRL - My Latest BMI Song

Verse 1

First time I saw you under that summer moon
Your eyes blazed me promised tomorrows in June
Baby that smile melted this man's frozen heart
We drowned willingly in love never drifting apart

Verse 2

Those lips of yours beckoned so sweetly to me
Golden hair flowed so gently in a soothing breeze
Alabaster arms reached out pulling me to your face
My injured spirit invited within that loving embrace

Chorus:

Yeah there you stood girl
Dancin' without dancin'
Floating into my eyes
There you stood girl

Verse 3

Ya know darling, you spoke a thousand words
All the while only a moment passing I heard
My wonderful angel you flew to me that very day
Your voice ringing over vast oceans asking to stay

Chorus: Repeat Twice 

Yeah there you stood girl
Dancin' without dancin'
Floating into my eyes
There you stood girl

Tag: Final Fading

Yeah, there you stood girl
There you stood girl

How Blows the Wind

How blows the soft vague wind,
She can't make up her mind;
For she travels with a restlessness,
Her footsteps we cannot find.

To taste the breath of being,
And know the wind is there;
Will lift the wings with freedom,
And take us everywhere.

The wind rides in solitude,
In her diaphanous delight;
Her skirts brush eternity,
To gather the stars of night.

The wind whispers my song to you,
A song I sing for you only;
This song I share you've heard before,
But it keeps me from feeling lonely.

love song

when i close my eyes so deep 
and my voice streches in acapella 
i could hear love song so quick 
reviving the deepest of soul like an orchestral.

Though i travel through the winds of deceit 
for the eyes seems blind to the heart
 but this song is like an instinct 
that blinds my certitude like that 

How could i dance to love
 when the deepest of my emotions 
is ringing in fear of odds,
yet my legs rushes to stage in passion.

How could i kiss with the fullness of joy
 the mouth that sings love song
so controvertial,but irresistable fallr
so blind but without reproachable sought.

These song 're songs of the sea 
defining nature in a plenitude of uncertainty 
though trickling the sweetestof breeze 
but the crest,trough,storms 're of certitude.

5000 Miles [blue suitcase version]

I knew the day when I saw the sun shining through the rain
And I pulled my blue suitcase out of the closet
Searching for some sweet way to say good-bye to you and me

After such a long month of vague wanderings
I'm ready to bid farewell to this and that
Quietly, my heart starts to hurt a little bit more
But it's time for me to start my journey
I'm sure now that what I'm searching for isn't here...

"Take your time, but I can't wait anymore."

There's 5000 miles between me and my home
I hope the wind will answer me and lead the way 
Because this life is too precious to spend
Just trying not to disappoint you
I'm going to walk 5000 miles to find my place
Maybe when I'm there, I'll send you a postcard

I took your sentimental smiles and teary-eyed confession and silly good-byes
And packed them into my suitcase right next to my favorite dress
I'm trying to promise you that we'll never have this kind of pain again.

There are so many people at the train station
That it scares me just a little bit
I feel like laughing and taking a picture for you
These tiny memories will be my treasure
Like you and me, I think someday you'll remember and smile.

"Take your time, is what they say, but I can't wait anymore."

There's 5000 miles between me and precious person
I hope that person will answer me and take my hand
Because this life is too short for me just to
Spend all my time worrying about your happiness
I'm going to walk 5000 miles to find my person
Maybe I'll send you pictures from our photobooth.

I won't forget you and I won't forget me
Like that tender feeling I could never grasp.
I won't forget the appartment that faced the forest
Or the wish that led me here or the dusty pianio
Now we lay our feelings to rest and separate.

For that place I'm looking for, for that person I'm praying for
I'll walk 5000 miles, dragging my blue suitcase along
Even if no one understands and everyone hates me for it
There's only one wish I want granted, it's the song stuck in head
I can't stop until that place; hold that person...

There's 5000 miles between me and my destination
The tears that fell on the southbound train become
My promise that this is the last time my selfishness will hurt you
One step at a time, I'm singing the song that's stuck in my head
I'll make a photo album for you, maybe I'll even send it.

I believe that you will find what you're looking for.

Rock and Roll Dream 1979

You don’t have to settle For heavy metal You don’t have to choose Rhythm and blues We’ll put a stop To A.M. pop We’ve got a scheme for a rock and roll dream We’re not fanatical ‘bout Beethoven classical It’s monotonic junk All that pogo punk you won’t have to save Trends of new wave We’ve got a scheme for a rock and roll dream The drummer will pound that rockin’ sound And the guitars scream in your rock and roll dream In your rock and roll dream You don’t have to settle For heavy metal There aint no disco In San Francisco This is a rock town We don’t play motown We’ve got a scheme for a rock and roll dream The drummer will pound that rockin’ sound And the guitars scream in your rock and roll dream In your rock and roll dream

Dance with me and sing the song of Spring

*** In the style of the oldies :)

Dance with me among the stars tonight
And hold me tight.
When we touch and when I kiss your lips
It feels so right.
Every word you say to me is like a song of spring,
And with you I will forever sing.

Even when the winter’s cold embrace
Touches your face,
I will make you warm inside and 
I’ll be by your side
No one in this crazy world is more in love than I,
You’re the star I’ve searched for in the sky.

So, dance with me under the stars tonight,
Dance with me lets make this moment right,
Sing to me your lovely song of spring
And with you I will forever sing,
And with you I will forever sing.

Thought I can’t foretell of things to be
But you’re with me.
And this moment’s where I want to be 
And tenderly
I hold every kiss and every touch and sound,
Thank you love - for it is love I found.

So, dance with me under the stars tonight,
Dance with me and make this moment right,
Sing to me your lovely song of spring
And with you I will forever sing,
And for you I will forever sing.

Dock Of The Bay

Back in the summer of 69
                            I remember sitting on the dock of the bay
                                     watching the boys of summer
                                   build their love shacks love shacks
                                    girls were playing twister and
                                   sipping on pina coladas all day
                                     feeling kind of groovy  groovy
                                    I couldn't get much higher higher
                                     with these such good vibrations
                                     from the summer in the city
                                     way down in Key Largo
                                watching my beach baby beach baby
                                           from the dock of the bay
                                   





Just Something I was working on

Hate to see the summer fun end

A Song

I write this words
Words underneath me
Words Within my Soul
I am trying to Set Free

I am writing a song
A song about you
A song that will change my feelings
To nothing new

I am trying to feel better
I am trying to feel good
But you always be my fear
And destroys all my mood

The days are getting darker
And all dreams I wished had fled away
I do not want to know you
But fate has been so cruel to me these days

I will a write a song
A Song that will show you
How much pain I have in me
How much pain you never even knew

These words I wrote
The paper that I hold
I am strumming my guitar
And I am trying to Show

These words of me...
The song of you...
These tunes from me..

This song is for you.

Sing Me A Song Of Love

Sing me a song of love:
A song of passion,
A song of emotion-
One that's true and genuine filled with everlasting devotion.

Sing me a song of love:
One that is sincere, 
One with compassion,
One of truth-
One that springs from the well of hope, eternal.

Sing me a song of love:
One of deep admiration,
A song of purity, of commitment, of family-
That bonds and can not be broken by the chimes of time
A song of love in rhythm and rhyme.

Sing me a song of love:
One so strong that it rights the  wrongs and
Lessens the hurts of past disappointments and makes life worth living-
Never to be taken for granted or given up on.

Sing me a song of  everlasting joy, peace and love-
One that as a child of All Mighty God, I am so deserving of.

Again

They say that nothing lasts forever
But why are you leaving so soon
When you told me that you’ll leave me never
Now this song will end soon

They say the time eases the pain
It has been years since you’ve been gone
But I can feel that I can’t regain
Now this is song is gone

Feels like forever is in your eyes
But ever since you started knitting lies
I feel like your love’s as cold as ice
But I had to stand up and be wise

They say that the best thing never last
But why did it happen so fast
So for now I have to rely on to the past
Hoping these tears will dry fast

They say time always heals
But there’s nothing I could feel
‘Cause my heart is now frozen
It’s better this way than be broken
Again…

Passion's Embrace

You're a creation of art.
A beautiful song from the heart.
Every note from your melody.
Makes me fall in love deeply.
I couldn't dream of heaven without you.
This experience is something new.


Can I get close to you and absorb your soul through passion's embrace?
Will you let me dance with you to the endless song of passion's grace?


1000 sweet promises reveals in your eyes.
Your essential embody scent I'll keep memorized.
Your kiss is so enchanting.
Yet one touch is all I' m asking.


Draw your eyes and breathe.
Endure the passion.
Let your emotions be
the pulse in every action.

Can I get close to you and absorb your soul through passion's embrace?
Will you let me dance with you to the endless song of passion's grace?


Blessed by destiny she granted you to me.
She took our fantasies and made them reality.
I'll never leave I need you, I want you, I love.
Dance with me forever.

I've never felt emotions like this.
Your darling smile, your blissful kiss.
Desire burns in your eyes as I melt in an ocean of you.
(I'm drowning in an ocean of you.)

The Things my Sadness Brings: Part 2

Will this song be instilling in me some peace 
That has only been felt by the deceased
Or is this just another disaster of clumsy chords
And am I just screaming redeeming my place 
On top of the pedestal of fools 
Again this isn’t what I had in mind 
This falls just short of my goal

In truth my mind’s a black hole
Sucking me in with every single thought 
Give it a round of applause because from it this song was brought
It has sought to be heard and finally it has took the form of word
Has it also infected you with some cryptic thoughts
That have been jumbled together and rumbled through my lips
I know I am just the vessel and I’ve already crossed the threshold
But o was bold and sold my soul
In order to the words that I hold
Some of us are just cast from a different mold

Now I gasp to find the last few words
And I hope it’s silent as you drive towards home, where ever that maybe
Because there is a new voice in your head and it sounds similar to me
It’s singing loud and out of key 
Instilling in you some residual feelings
The you begin thinking “If he did it why can’t I”
But then you realize there’s that girl by your side
Staring intently with eyes wide
Unlike me your heart has a place to confide 
And to cry in and hide until the pain subsides 

As for me I will ride home with my mind
And some stranger that I find
We will sip our wine she will slip off her dress
She will soon learn she was just to help pass the time
Her name will soon slip my mind
I just wish for the warmth of a whisper
In these freezing months that have eclipsed us

I guess I’ll settle for this old stage which is my display case
I try, I try to make my case 
But the lies I sing are just some old parlor tricks
I hope they will suffice for all of the apologies I missed or forgot to give
So now I’ll just scream with blackened lungs
In some old forgotten tongues about my misery 
Please save your sympathy because it will be wasted on me


Details | Lyric | |

Catch Me me now

 Medicated, 
I want to be numb
I want to feel nothing
I want to feel nothing at all
Hanging on to false hope
one last thread, I'm hanging high
go ahead and cut me down,
because I'm already falling, 
there's no ground to catch me now..
catch me now

 Desperate, 
I've never been desperate before
longing for that high,
just something to get me by
look into my dilated soul,
unspoken thoughts.. 
they will all explode
I'm longing for something more
this world lost me, lost me long ago..
you lost me 
you lost me long ago 
 
catch Me, catch me if you can
go ahead and catch me

 I'm hanging high above you now,
hanging by a thread...
go ahead and cut me down,
because I'm already falling.. 
there's no ground to catch me
no one can catch me
go ahead, try and catch me now

The song

My body moves to the song 
my voice sings out every word 
The lights are on sparkling at me 
I own the floor can not hide it
You know its wildness

Each beat is pounding at my soul
My pouted lips are talking
At the shadows on the wall
In my own world as i throw back my hair 
You know you want to stare

My stage is high
I present to my watchers 
I know i got you ,I know I got it
My guitar is playing fire to you
My eyes look down on you, and eat you alive 

As you sing with me we own the sound
You can not fight it ,just admit it
women to man you all shout it
The song takes control 
Rock and roll my soul

who wants it 
Take me to it 
the noise is louder and louder 
Its running deeper and deeper
The sound is my keeper
As i am yours.....

i once shot a zebra in my pajamas how he got into my pajamas i'll never know

      
LISTEN TO MS. BELL CAST A SPELL

The chick can sing, dance and entertain
She’ll sing today’s hits and down memory lane
The lady’s voice is luxurious and so sublime
And of course her melody keeps perfect time

I watch her in awe as she wows a crowd
She’ll sing softly or belt a tune out loud
The woman will wail and set your heart afire
And when she’s done it’s another song you will desire

She’s desirous, delicate and quite demure
Yet and still when she’s done you’ll beg for more
“oh please, my sweet” you’ll beseech her to sing
Because she can sing, dance and do everything

Her talent is ambient, her voice so sweet
And with every song she turns up the heat
I watch her wiggle as all other men do too
And with every performance I hear her talent accrue

So if you want the best forget all the rest
Sit back, relax and listen at beauty’s behest
Her voice will ease your sorrow and pain
And as I said, the chick can sure entertain

Here we go again
Popping my veins
Strain,Full of pain
It's you that I blame
Up from hell of which I came
Broken chains
I can't be tamed
Can't even read
High on weed
Seed,Evil deeds
No me no wanna breed
Have no pride but full of greed
Succeed,indeed
I'll lead the need
Awe hell
Oh well
Tell,Now I gotta yell
Out you will sell
Ding dong b**** ring that bell
Can't fit in my shell
Or get up cause I fell
Out for thee
You can't see
Me,She wanna be
It's not us or we
You gotta charge pay the fee
Get down,get down on 1 knee
I'll give the key to set you free

Holy Roller

Oh! Holy roller.
Drink some water.
Then go out in the world, 
and breath some air.

Oh! Holy roller.
If you need a friend.
Try and think of me, 
and I'll be there.

When you're down and out, 
and you need a friend.
Try and think of me, 
and I'll be there.

And when you're lonely, 
and you need a friend.
Try and think of me, 
and I'll be there.

Oh! Holly roller.
Drink some water.
Then go out in the world, 
and breath some air.

Oh! Holy roller.
If you need a friend.
Just open up your arms, 
and I'll be there.

Just open up your arms, 
and I'll be there..

a drought in the middle of the river blues

there is a drought in the middle of the river where i go to sit and cry
there is a drought in the middle of the river where i go to sit and cry
i kiss the sand of the makeshift desert where I know I am bound to die

i am a border at the corner of isolation and regret
i am a border at the corner of isolation and regret
when my heart starts pouring out he will put my reflexes in deep debt

the vultures laugh at my feeble attempt to be their friend
the vultures laugh at my feeble attempt to be their friend
the vultures see right through me and they fly all around me till the very end

i guess i'll go to the freezer and i'll pull out my old deathbed suit
i guess i'll go to the freezer and I'll pull out my old deathbed suit
i am gonna die today so i might as well look handsom and cute

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.

I ASK YOU

Verse 1:
I ask you what’s wrong but you won’t say a word
So I had to hear it from a little bird
She told me you were having second thoughts
And the remainder of her words left my stomach in knots
She claimed you had found someone new

Verse 2:
When we first met our love was such bliss
I can still remember the taste of your kiss
But sometime since then we’ve grown apart
I guess I’m no longer the need of your heart
Especially after all we’ve been through

Bridge:
Sometimes I wonder if it’s true
Now it’s time that I ask you

Chorus: 
Does this song remind you of me
Or is it another girl you see
Do you picture the nights we’ve had
Way before everything went bad
Or do you see another’s face
And is it Her memory you can’t erase
If it is just let me know
It’ll make it that much easier to go

Verse 3: 
When we’re together something feels wrong
I keep thinking of how we’ve been together so long
Maybe you’re bored, or was it just me
Was I not everything you hoped I would be
Tell me you haven’t found someone new

Repeat Bridge
Repeat Chorus

Does this song remind you of me
Or is it another girl you see

Moina and Doina

Inner song and rain and snow,
Inner song and rain and snow...
Moina -the recollection of smiles and tears,
In tender sight of honey time magically wears.
Doina -my soul affectionatelly will drain
With little snow and fluorescent drops of rain,
With flakes of thoughts dropping along
With every gaze upon the trees` inner song,
In slowed moment among the clouds above,
Among the playful birds thrilling on love.

Under the rusty leafage and grass`s oppression deep,
The unseen roots,much loneliness and secrets keep:

Each tree is a poem unwritten yet;
Each bud is a forgotten tale set
By ancestors who died too young
With much love in their hearts,on tongue;
With large open eyes looking at the sky;
Doina is a glass poem-tree that will try 
To live this life as a new fulfilled desire;
Each line in no time amber is the world entire
Without joy and without sorrow,
Just a greeting for tomorrow.
Inner song and rain and snow;
Inner song and rain and snow...

Crush, But Not A Rush

(Chorus: song (rpt. 1x)): As I was raised up on my relationship life
It was hard for the one who had a crush on me
I sometimes crushed him back, but its not a rush
Even though time after time I had to blush 
He was my crush, but not a rush

(Verse 1: rap): Not trying to push on you wrong baby boy
Im telling you, you’re not dealing with a toy 
But it’s this part of me that you will never know
I know you see the love that I try to show
Now look at this broken heart you got to mend
I don’t wont to send my love
I want to share it with you
But this one person had step in my life, including others
down the road that crushed it down piece by piece
It seems as if this broken heart
Just isn’t going to be put back
paste by paste
I know its my only lips you want to taste
I know its my only body you want to feel
I know its our love you want to share
I know it seems as if I don’t care
because in my eyes you’re just a crush, but not a rush

(Chorus: song (rpt. 1x)): As I was raised on my relationship life
It was hard for the one who had a crush on me
I sometimes crushed him back, but its not a rush
Even though time after time I had to blush
He was my crush, but not a rush

(Verse 2: rap) I know my love is the only thing you want to taste 
But boy please believe that I need my space
I know its my face that you only want to see
And my heart you want to set free
Cause you tired of these skees
But Im not on that B.S.
Im on a woman stage of something so real
I know you want to feel in me
But I don’t think you see
that im not looking for love
of these so-called men
Can’t you see in order for me to keep my head up high
Is to only look beyond the skies
Because when I’m down
I know that the one beyond the skies will comfort me
And if its really your love I need
When can you show that for me
I think your really blinded by what you see
Instead of seeing the real woman inside of me
Can’t you see
That you’re just a crush, but baby boy its not a rush

(Chorus rpt 2x)

Glory To The Lord

Glory to the Lord, glory to the Lord
He has saved my soul
Glory to the Lord, glory to the Lord
He has saved my soul
I was dead yes before
Now I live for evermore
Glory, glory to the Lord
Changed my life from bad to good
Now I'll praise Him like I should
Glory, glory to the Lord
Glory O glory this song is my testimony
Glory, glory to the Lord
Glory O glory this song is my testimony
Glory, glory to the Lord
Yes He died on Calvary now He lives inside of me
Glory, glory to the Lord
When I think of what He's done
I just want to sing this song
Glory, glory to the Lord
Glory, glory to the Lord.

Favourite music lyrics

" I came up in here to rock
light a fire, make it hot
I don't wanna take no pitures
I just wanna take some shots
so come on, let's go
let's lose control
let's do it all night
till we can't do it no more."

this is the song that cheers me up when
I'm down, that makes me want to dance 
till I can't dance no more. This is the song that 
brings me and my friends together, this is the 
song that brings laughter and joy, this is our
song to happiness!

Your Song

now to rearrange, or pick and choose 
from what i had, that made up you 
the scattered thoughts inside my head 
"write a song about me" you said 

i found some gems; lyrical gold 
in my snapshot box of things you told 
i strung them together, set them to rhyme 
my jigsaw of poetry in 2/4 time 

this is the stuff that songs are made of 
but i cant sing in tune 
its a shame i have dyslexia 
or i'd try it in accapella 
i know you think its sexier 

the words, i know will make you smile 
i was in love, you in denyal 
those extraordinary nights, sick with perfection 
are mirrored here in my singsong reflection 

that time we laughed so hard we cried 
rolled in the grass, stayed up all night 
dizzy whispers accross the bed 
'write a song about me' you said 

this is the stuff that songs are made of 
but i sing out of key 
this problem makes the tune flop 
sound more r'n'b than hip hop 
so i guess instead of singing 
i'll have to scream your song from rooftops

Spring Grace

A delightful description of spring spilling forth it's grace upon the earth, singing a colorful 
song of peace.



An open window of spring grace,
a beam of sunlight touches my face.
The morning dew evaporates in the wind,
spilling forth the scent of jasmine.

Sing with me a song of spring grace,
a spider's web woven like lace.
A sparrow perched upon my swing,
sing with me a song of spring.

A red fern growing wild in a meadow,
goldenrods beam a golden glow.
Crickets chirping at my feet,
Sing with me a song of spring.

I Will not go till I sing this Song

I will not go so quietly; until I sing this song;
I’ll sing you every part of it; before I’m dead and gone.
I won't go away; with this song that’s in my heart;
I’ll sing you pieces every day; till I’ve sang you every part.

I’ll sing for you a love song; that the birds have chirped so sweet
I’ll play for you Flamingo songs; with a rugged gypsy beat.
I’ll reach out with my heart; and hope you understand;
I’ll offer my compassion; and hold to you my hand.

From the essence of my soul; I will sing to you my sorrow;
And sacrifice myself for you; for all your new tomorrows.
I will not go so quietly; with this song that you should see
Remember when I sing to you; I’m leaving part of me.

                                                   
            "  Do you hear the melody; behind the words I write;
              I hope it grows inside of you; and brings you rest at night.
              No I will not go; till I’ve sung to you this song;
              And if it becomes a part of you; I’m never truly gone."



Keep this with you always; it must someday be returned;
So we may live another life; and the heart has what it yearns.
It’s such an easy melody; and the words have easy rhymes;
So we can take it everywhere; until there is no time.

Never let that spirit die; no mater where I go;
I’m living in this song I sing; so reflect on what you know.
Hearts can never perish; our love can never die;
Where ever in this life you go; darling there am I.

sing a song of life

sing a song of trees
 shedding down its leaves
 shake all its branches
 till you get your needs in basket 

sing a song of fores
 running round its circuit
 take part in the contest
 to get your games arrested 

sing a song of streams 
sitting by its bank
 let in your hook and line
 to get the fishes evicted 

sing a song of the sky
 watching its wealth  bird life
 set your eyes and catapult 
to get the birds demoted

sing a song of dishes,
 sitting round the table,
handle your cutleries with car
to get your meal imprisoned

sing a song of fields
 playing round its corners 
lay on the leisure mat
 to get your nerves relaxed

sing a song of life
living in love and peace
 face the two sides of the coin 
till your story gets to the end

Dawn in a Summer Garden

At the exact moment of dawn,
             that micro-second when the sun,
               from millions of miles away,
           fires its first beams like lasers
              as it crests the curvature
                     of the Earth
                         and
               one of those laser beams
          pierces the dank and humid darkness
                 of the lush garden
                         and
               suddenly all sounds cease,
           as if someone had flipped a switch
           and the deafening silence is felt
            as pressure, as if some spectoral
              hands has cupped themselves
            over one's ears--a muffled roar
         of seashells held up to a child's ear,
              longing to hear the ocean
                   of one's youth.

                 Then the beam shifts
             and touches the tender edges
                of a few chosen leaves
          and then settles and spreads itself
              over a gossamer arachnoid treasure
            woven with mathmatical precision
             wafting slightly in a gentle
                    morning breeze
             like the sail of a fairy ship,
             quivering dew drops caught and
               transformed into a dozen
             crystal prisms, sparkling jewels,
              multi faceted fluid diamonds
                       and then
          just as quickly as it came it is gone,
           this magical moment, as the brutal
                   sun climbs higher
          and the soft buttery light sharpens
                and spreads its heat
             and the steam begins to rise
          from the dark earth, wispy, reluctant
             spectors of the Southern night
                        and
             the muffled quiet is broken
           by the clear song of a cardinal,
             a flash of magnificent red
           amongst the many shades of green,
        as the creatures of the night burrow deep,
          hiding from the searing summer heat
               that has already begun

              in this southern garden 
                        of
                  light and dark
                 song and silence
               beauty and distruction

            and so another magnolia-laden
               summer night is gone

            and one must reluctantly rise
              another summer day begun.

Broken Toy

Black heart
on a white page
Red blood beating through
Blue veigns
Yellow teeth speaking of
a greener day

Everything in between is grey
Everything in between is grey
One song for every other day
Using your music to communicate
Angels looking for an escape
and everything in between is grey

Black today
to set
you free
whit tomorrow
because
of me
red for two days
to give away
and I'm the one in blue
i give this to you
No more yellow shirts on t.v.
but you can always turn to

Everything in between is grey
everything in between is grey
one song for every other day
using your music to communicate
angels looking for an escape
and everything in between is grey

Black fades today
and white remains
Blue slides away
and yellow trades
Green begins to sway
or you can always say

Everything in between is grey
Everything in between is grey
one song for every other day
using your music to communicate
Angels looking for their escape
and everything in between is grey

It always starts with 
a black heart on a white page
in the middle i give this to you
and its gonna end in between grey

Tomorrow We Had (ska song)

Thanks again m'friend
for all the worries that you slayed
let's find out
how all of this began

tomorrow! face the day and tell me how we would play
No sorrow! take these things and run them all away
no one, no one can replace this friendship
no one, no one can tell us when to quit

thanks for all the blessings
thanks for all the things you've said
won't forget you
when we go our seperate ways instead

tomorrow! face the day and tell me how we would play
No sorrow! take these things and run them all away
no one, no one can ever take your place
nothing gone, someday we'll meet again face to face

(riffin' trumpet and trombone solo)

Thanks for all these past few years
they're gonna stay right here you'll see
won't leave without
letting you know what you did for me

Tomorrow! I'll be holding on to what we had
No sorrow! our time together was never just some fad
keep on--just keep on goin' on
and remember that together we could do no wrong


--this was a killer ska song I had in my head.
It's a fast off-beat song with some nice vocals.  Anyhoo, 
I just like getting it out on "paper".  Feel free to use it if any bands are interested--

Blessed Is He

So let the Lord be

Just simply let Him in
In that song of restoration
Ye sang that same old song
Of old
With a fervor to release
Thy inhibition
And temperst thy very soul

Brunette Silhouette Cigarette

Small shaped puddle holes, Come tumbling over my feet.
Walking...scraping my hand, bleeding sweat.
Sun glowing darkness over brunette hair.

The vain made burning desires, tapping over keyboard notes.
This pain isn't the same, It is gone to cut a perpetual imagery.
Feeling that comforting embrace around five arms.

Stars stick to my eyes, making it hard to see thin blisters of pain.
While bleeding the love, Perhaps I had,
As the asphalt absorbs the love I lost that February.
I'm scared of daily sunrise, of what it might bring:
A lost memory, an outlines silhouette, a dark havoc,a song that fell out of my 
palms,
a sweet stare, a cold tear, a gasp for breath, a drop of blood...all compressed in 
an old-fashioned cigarette.This coffin will rule everything.

A sheer white dove hits the wall,
And the nearby twigs picked up a heart beat.
The electrical cords used as everyday materials:
Shoelaces and artificial belts, for over sized pants bough at a bargain store.

This song makes my heart stop for eternity.
It was short, but now it's late...It dried so quickly!
It belongs in the colorful recycle bins, we find in front of our homes.
Recycled for souls who need, dried, worn out, lonely broken hearts.

The restroom has suffered many maltreats.
It has seen many, images he wishes he never saw.
Maltreat, he calls it.
Maltreat in his walls.

Coming from sour dreams, from your room.
Scratches in the thoughts, in my chest.
On brunette head, you have seen many splatters you might regret.
You count the picture they drew of many tears, you might of wasted.
On those early months of a new depressing year.
Some few wilted roses you might see in my covered eyes,
With brunette hair...Silhouette feelings, and cigarette apparel.

A Simple Song


A simple song is easy to remember,
It flickers like a flame inside your brain,
The melody is like a burning ember, 
It even smolders through he rain.

A simple song is yesterday returning,
A ribbon wrapping up your dreams and fears,
A fantasy of ecstasy and yearning,
A symphony of smiles and tears.

Simple songs are always seeming
Nothing more than idle dreaming
Lost in the air.

So listen to the simple song I’m singing,
And listen to your childhood when it calls,
And hear the faint and distant ringing
Of bells along the castle walls.

A simple song is good most any season,
In summertime or winter or the spring,
You sing it sad or happy for no reason,
It doesn’t have to mean a thing.

A Soldier's Song

Sing, your favorite song slowly as it plays.
Dance, to that sweet melody as your body sways.
Transpose, each word as it reaches your heart.
Recall, all the memories tender, that never part.

What will we do when all the songs have been sung?
What emotion will we possess, when every tragic war has been won?
Will we stare sadly into each others eyes, and watch painfully tears go by?
Or, will we hold each other tight and simply sigh?

Can you conceive your favorite song, never to be?
Can you truly preceive the day when there are no more wars, threating us to be free?
Love would be felt in music, as our lonely hearts would recall.
Cold wars are still being fought causing death, as we stain their city walls.

Will our hearts remember rhythm?  When all the songs have been sung.
What conflict will be fought, when all the wars have been won?
Without wars, lonely soildiers hearts will sing in gladness.
Without song, our souls, hearts, and minds would sink into madness.

Gladly, sing your favorite song slowly, as it plays.
Let that sweet melody consume you, as your body sways.
Transpose, each word as it reaches your heart.
Recalling, all the cold wars, that man should never start.

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!

An Old Sweet Song

A man who felt that when he walk out the door 
he walk alone and in the dark
inducing him to subject himself to something
that left him null and void
medicating his feelings
stealing his joy
traveling the road of that stuff called boy
rising above adversities
this beloved entertainer was able to see the light
he belted out an old sweet song 
with all his might 
Georgia forever on his mind
he shared the wealth
from a heart that was loving caring and kind
In March he received an apology
from the state that banned him 
Ray was welcomed back to them
his family by his side
he was not alone
Georgia was on his mind
as he sang
an old sweet song

My Home Sweet Home

As we pledge our allegiance to the flag
Together in gratitude, let us join in prayer,
For the millions before us who gave their lives
Defending our privilege to breathe Liberty’s air.

Oh say can you see the blessings we share
‘Neath purple mountains and spacious skies?
For our amber waves of grain grow in soil tinted red
By the blood of Patriots who laid down their lives.

My country, ‘tis of thee my heart sings
And upon whom God has shed His Grace.
My country, ‘tis to thee I pray you will always
Sing as one voice for our future children’s sake.

You’re a grand old flag; you’re our Star Spangled Banner
And I salute the virtues o’er which you are wavin’.
You fly proudly as a Beacon of Hope and assurance
For the tired and weak who flee to you for safe haven.

If tomorrow all the things were gone
For which we’ve toiled for over 200 years,
May we one day look into the face of our God
With no regrets for our efforts, blood, sweat and tears.

And, when in the course of human events
It becomes necessary to defend Liberty and Justice for all.
May we hold strong as brothers and sisters under one Father
Or together, we will most certainly fall.

God bless our leaders both here and abroad
May their souls be confirmed in self-control.
And God Bless us all with the wisdom to support the defense
Of Freedom and Democracy for all.

Our Father who art in Heaven,
I’d like to teach the world to sing,
A song that knows no language barriers
A song of love and peace and harmony.

From the mountains, to the prairies,
To the oceans, white foam,
Happy Birthday, dear America,
You are my home, sweet home.

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

Memory Lane

Come with me, let's remember the days
 when life was easy and free,
  let's turn back the pages of time
   and be young once again.

Can you hear the song playing,
 do you hear its haunting strain?
  do you recall the traces of the music
   coming down memory lane?

My life is so empty, I need to escape,
 those happy days are dead and gone,
  they will never come back again,
   so here I just pretend.

Can you hear the song playing,
 do you hear its haunting strain?
  do you recall the traces of the music
   coming down memory lane?

Yes, it floats down memory lane.

It is the song of a road

To Kerstin from Sweden



 

My train is singing

the song of roads.

I see through a window:

Yellow and red trees

are seeing me off

with sorrowful, mysterious eyes.

The wet from a rain,

the bushes,

the grass, and October’s flavours,

are telling me,

«Maybe 

we shall never meet again.»

I am looking through the window,

There are a lot of old little houses 

under ramshackle, black roofs 

in lonely, poor villages.

They are looking at this train,

and at of me in this window.

There aren’t many people in these villages,

Almost never is children’s laughter heard here.

But I think, somewhere,

two old persons, a man and a woman,

are watching the TY program of Sweden,

And after that they are traveling

in their thoughts and dreams, to that country.

But they heard nothing

about two Swedish people: Kerstin with Olle, 

about their little red house,

about horses and the fields nearby.

Yellow and red trees

are seeing me off

with sorrowful, mysterious eyes.

My train is singing

the song of roads.

Whispers of Maybe
Copyright May 29, 2008 Corinne Curcio

V1
Whispers of maybe 
Are calling to me
Holding a promise
Of what could be
They come in the silence
A siren's song 
Could they be right
Could I be wrong?

V2
Whispers of maybe
Wear a disguise 
Dressed up in folly 
And words to the wise
Holding a hint 
Of perfumed air
And all my heart hopes for 
Waits for me there

Bridge 1
Like half remembered dreams
So much seems just in reach
Like infinite grains of sand
Will I understand this endless beach?
They're leading me on
Whispers of Maybe

V3
Whispers of maybe
Might be worthwhile
When they tell me
To walk one more mile
Though I want to rest
Though I need to sleep
I could be heading
Somewhere so deep

Bridge 2
What beckons to me?
Could there be something more?
Will it turn out a better place
Than those I've faced before?
They're leading me on 
Whispers of Maybe

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!

When The Last Song Is Sung

When the last song is sung on this earth,
I'll be standing before my King, rejoicing
my rebirth.
Oh what a day, He planned for me,
when my Kings face I see,
when the last song is sung on this earth.
Heavens Gates will open wide, and I'll be
welcomed on the other side, when all the ones
who've gone before, will be waiting on God's
Golden Shore, when the last song is sung on
this earth.
Silver clouds, and streets paved with gold,
Oh such beauty to behold, as the King invites me in, 
a place absent  from pain and sin,
when the last song is sung on this earth.
No more tears we'll have to dry, all because my Savior died,
He paid our debt on Calvary, and one day He'll come for me,
when the last song is sung on this earth.
Oh what a day of jubilee, 
when He wraps His loving arms, around me,
when the last song is sung on this earth.
When the last.. song is sung... on this earth.

Song A Song

Sing a song in darkness,
Sing a song in bright,
Sing a song inside you
And you will be all right.

Sing a song below you,
Sing a song above,
Sing a song around you
And you'll know love.

Sing a song in cloudy,
Sing a song in sun,
Sing a song always
And you'll BE one.

If Song

If I had a song, it would wake me
in the dim before dawn with its buried
drumbeat of dogs breathing
beside the bed.

That song would tune up
past the window in a reedy piping 
of some bird I never noticed,
setting up reverberations of dream.

A song would march me out the door, 
where sun finds its notch 
between pines, so I’d hold my palms up 
open, soundless in applause.

If I had a song, it would keep me
going through the day, a tune I can’t 
get out of my head, puzzling out 
a word that seeks its rhyme.

A song would feed me, tease me, 
blow me kisses and taunt 
me with its triteness/rightness
till I became the song.

My Song For You

I'm so tired of writing the songs in my head,
Lyrics unheard, and the verses unsaid.
They need to be spoken or sung in a song,
Held up in captivity, imprisoned too long.
We speak to each other, words in and words out,
A murmer, the whispers, just talking, a shout.
But, the true song I'm singing stays locked in my head,
It's not even close to the words that I've said.
The song that I'm singing is my song just for you,
It's all in my head but each word of it's true.
It won't leave my lips or float soft thru the air,
But please know my song is for you, always there.
The song that I sing speaks of beauty and love,
Two birds of a feather, like the flight of a dove.
It's you and me together, holding hands side by side,
On this mystical journey, just along for the ride.
Supporting each other with a love O so deep,
Knowing the comfort, theres a love, ours to keep.
A synphony plays each note in my head,
My song for you echoes with words never said.
I hope that someday my song can come thru,
You'll hear all the words that I sing just for you.
You'll know that it yours, you'll remember each word,
It will sound like a song that I know you have heard.
Just feel the melody, so familiar from the start,
A song that you'll feel caressing your heart.
I wait for the day that my song will come thru,
You'll find that you know it, you'll sing with me too.

neverending story

this song it like a neverending story
we both played a part
but you pretending
even though you a million miles away
you got me thinkin,
you still love me
not knowing that youre lyin

"neverending story"

you said it was me
but it was you
who was cheatin
changin up, everyday,
like diffrent seasons
you dissappear into the night
sleepin with diffrent creatures
with diffrent features

"this a neverending story"
break it down now!

breakdown part:
neverending story...
yeah yeah yeah
"break it down"
oooh
"this a neverending story"
oooh, oooh..yeah

neverending story
boy, you will never change
all your lies, you feed me
sayin youve been, real to me
let me tell you one thang
reggin, you say that losely
love- so overated
its beginning to lose its meaning

neverending story
(story,story)
neverending story...

"oh yes it is"

this song is like a neverending story
we both played a part
but you pretending
even though you a million miles away
your bestfriend keeps warning me
you pretending you love me
this a neverending story

Choose To Dance

A song leaps from my heart at the beginning of each new day, 
A song with a melody that never plays a sad song, 
Never carries a tune that is wrong, this is just my way…
If I have the choice of sitting this one out, I will choose to dance! 
If there is breath of life there is always hope of life, 
Love and great things to experience and know! 
It is so important if there is love of the heart, to let it show! 

Some live a life that never knows real sorrow, 
Some face sorrow more than it seems they should. 
Some we say, have more than their share, 
But still face it as much as they could. 
If you have a choice dance, dance, dance! 

Even in the face of sorrow, I don't want to sit this one out, 
Even in the face of tears, I don't want to sit this one out, 
I want to choose to dance! 
I hope with all my heart, that no matter come what may, 
That you will always choose to dance! Dance of the heart, dance of the soul, 
Dance with all your might, dance with courage, never letting go.
Choose To Dance!

When Andy Sings

I heard a song one Sunday night
I never will forget
It sounded like an angel
I sat there and just wept

Only the Lord himself could put that sound
Inside of just one man
It left me knowing without a doubt
Music was God's plan

The words, the trumpet, the soft melody
Touched the depth of me
I had an aching urge inside
To get down on my knees

It occured to me that song alone
"Holy, Holy, Holy"
Had the power - solely, on its own
To bring a lost soul home

To witness worship so profound
One expects to see wings
I know that God is smiling down
When Brother Andy sings!

Silent Song

Silently, in golden notes,
     the sunlight sings;
Leaves of poplars catch the notes
     and give them wings.

Song of wind comes sweeping through
     with gentle might,
Shaking laughter into you
     of tone by sight.

Sun-notes on the waving grass,
     now they sing, too;
Where your footsteps lightly pass
     song clings to you.

Gentle might of life to me,
     my mind's bright song,
All the tongues of day's new spring
     for you are strong.

Up the hill you step and climb,
     into the sky;
Song of hair flows out behind,
     your forehead high.

Now atop the singing crest
     you stop to smile,
Seeing eyes that held you best
     this glad-sung while.

In my arms the song of day
     does rush and swell,
Silent song of lips that say---
     what song can't tell.
