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

    ah Dano. I feel your words etched upon the page. What rhyme and meter you have here.. I'll cry with you. Today's my birthday and I'm just a year older man.. been a depressing day, so I wrote ot some blues for the occasion. looks like we must've been on the same train of thought huh? take care, as always its enjoyable to read your stuff my dear friend.

    Great lyrics, Dan! I enjoyed reading them tonight. Reminds me of a cross between Steve Miller's The Joker and Lynard Skynard's Simple Man. Well done! Love and blessings, Rhonda
