NEVER WILL BE

Traveled the world
Tasted bright lights 
Toasted all those towns
On those far away nights
The price for the show
How things had to be
The crowds grew large
And so did the lonely 

Thinking of you
Dreaming of home
Glory feels empty
When you are alone
But I couldn’t quit
Addicted to fame
Blinded by pride
Couldn’t feel your pain

The sun always rose
And hid the dark nights
I got lost in the music
Forgot long-distant fights
The band became family
You were so far away
Another night’s concert 
A hollow end to the day

Thinking of you
Dreaming of home
Glory feels empty
When you are alone
But I couldn’t quit
Addicted to fame
Blinded by pride
Couldn’t feel your pain

You begged me come home
Said I will one day soon
But more cities called
And I always found room
My mind was out there
When our little one passed
You needed to be first
But I made you feel last

Was I thinking of you
Was I dreaming of home
Why go back on the road
Leaving you all alone
Now you too are gone
So blind couldn’t see
I was writing of love 
That now never will be

~Lyric Man

Note: Love can be right in front of you.. and you still miss it!

Sometimes its all too easy to forget the things in life that need our focus, our attention and our love the most, and that is the people closest to us ... Though a tough subject to write about, you still penned this in such a beautiful way, Lyric Man.

A heart felt poem. I am so sorry about the choice that tore your love apart. I can feel all the emotions on both sides. You described it very well. Since I was once married to a musician I can understand this poem. I wish you only the best. I will keep you in my prayers.

Gorgeous, sad storytelling LM. Sometimes we are blind to things, but it's not always our fault. You have to forgive yourself. x

A very emotional verse Dave, you were torn between the two, when we look back we realise that sometimes we made the wrong choice in our path, but we all make mistakes in our lives. Hope you are well. Tom

A heart being filled with so many emotions, sometimes finds it difficult to feel the most important one. Never allow your mind to take you to a dark place, and stay. Your thoughts touch me deeply. I am here for you. ~ Brandy
