The Swing Song

The Creak of a Swing, Caught in the Breeze,
Pushed by a Friend With Gentle Ease.
Listen Next Time You're Near,
to that Familiar Song
from a Childhood year.
The Chains Tangle, Then Snap Free
as You Kick to Touch the Branch
of the Nearest Tree.
Knee's Pumping, Climbing High as
you Dare to go.
As You reach Bottom,
You Just Drag a Toe.
One more pass, THEN, Just Let Go.
Think of the Thrill, Remember Still.
Summer Days Oh So Long,
When You Hear the Creak of a Swing,
STOP for a Moment, Your Youth is Singing
THE SWING SONG.

Dancing Through The Ages

I've Danced Through Many Ages, to Many Sounds On Many Stages.
I've Prepared For Those Who've Come To Town.
I've Smiled and Leaped and Never Came Down.
I've Worn Costumes That Had Laces,
I've Spent Hours Applying Make-Up
While in Far Away Places
There's No Applause to be Found,
When The Final Curtain Comes Down..
The Silence Can Leave You Deaf,
Once The Audience Has Left.
The Theater I've Always Called My Second Home.
With Other Dancers, or On My Own.
Friends You Make While In a Show,
The Contract Ends and Off They Go.
No Matter The Circumstance,
Nothing Makes Me Happier,
Then Just To Dance. 5-6-7-8

Life Has To Go It's Own Way

Let Me Tell You About Times I Remember.
A Time That Started One Day Born in November.
Times Where There Were Things I had To Say,
Times Where Life Has To Go It's own Way.
There's Been Times Where I Had To Hide,
Life Hasn't Been Always On My Side.
I Shuffle Along, I've Got a Special Soul Vibe.
I've Held My Head High, Cause I've Got My Pride.

I've Been Lost Without GPS or a Map,
I've Worked on Jobs Where I Felt Trapped.
I've Been With Women Who Could Cause a Heart Attack.
It's Never Worked Out but I've Never Looked Back.

I've Tried to Never be Mean. I've Spent Hours Just Day Dreaming.
I've Worked Hard and Said What The Heck.
How Will I Pay These Bills With This Lousy Check?
I've Lived Where It's Always Warm, I've Lived Where I've Been Frozen.
I'm Living What It Seems Fate Has Chosen.
I've Faced Life's Fears. There's Been Times Where I Dropped Some Gears.
I've Had Times With Nothing to Cheer.

I've Had Times Where I've Had an Empty Tummy.
I've had People Say, I'm Doggone Funny.
I've Danced and Played Music All Day Long,
I've Sang Songs I Know I Sang Wrong.
I Try Everyday To Make It Through,
There's Not Two Days in a Row Where I'm Feeling Blue.
I've Known People Who Won't Cut You Any Slack,
Are They Really Your Friends, When They Haven't Got Your Back?
I'm Happy To Live Another Day, Being Homeless is a Paycheck Away.               Life Just Has To Go It's Own Way.

PRAY

When You PRAY, Get Down On Your Knees.
Following JESUS Is All You'll Ever Need.
The Power in JESUS Name,
Brings LOVE and Forgiveness
Because He Came.
JESUS Died for Our Sins,
He Rose and Will Come Again.
AMEN, Means This Is True.
The Gospel Brings Good News.
Jesus Christ Is The Chosen One.
GOD Sent His Blessings,
With His Son.
Hallelujah, Means Praise The Lord.
It's Time To Get Onboard.
From Your Heart Everyday,
Pray, Pray, Pray, Pray, Pray

It Must Be The Shoes

It Must Be The Shoes, it must be the floor.
I'm at the audition and enter the door.
I think I'm to small, but I'll wear my flats
so I won't fall.

I'm dancing Center Stage. Pirouettes make me crash into others,
this sends them into a rage. 
I should know my stage directions.
Move downstage toward the Mic, I better figure out my left from my right.

I pulled my hair back and wore my best tights. Point your toes dancers!
This is going to be a long night. I warmed up at home and stayed focused
on the way. I got new Head Shots, but I forgot them today.

Look at my extension. See how high I can leap. 
Now just keep smiling and land on the beat.
I can't believe how I'm perspiring. They announce that there will only
be one that they will be hiring.
 
Sequins, feathers and G strings too,
if I get this job, You won't hear me complaining
IT MUST BE THE SHOES!

What's The Matter

When I asked, What's the Matter? 
You looked me in the eye and said, I've got No time for your silly chatter.
I asked again, What's the Matter? This obviously made you even madder.
Love can come in waves. It may spill or it may splatter.
Should I stay or should I scatter?
You don't seem to be calming down. You're still wearing a heavy frown.
I would like to apologize for whatever I've done.
You being mad at me isn't a whole lot of fun.
As I reach for your hand, you say,
"I'm still mad at you Man!"
We sit, it's silent, neither one of us speaks.
Will I get the Silent treatment for hours, days or weeks?
You stand and clear your throat to start. Please be careful,
Your anger is aimed at my Heart. I'm wondering what she might be thinking.
She's staring at me with gun fighter eyes, not even blinking.
I move toward her and reach out for a hug. 
She refuses and gives me a shove.
The thing is and it makes me sadder.
I don't even know
WHAT'S THE MATTER?

When Push Comes To Shove

Can You Make My Heart Skip a Beat?
Will You Kiss Me With Lips So Sweet?
As My Eyes Gaze Into Your Soul,
Will You Make My Blood Boil?
When The Time Comes to Push or To Shove,
Will You Be Able To Check Off All
Of Thee Above?
Can You Make Our Time Together Feel Complete?
Can You Project to Others to Not Even 
Try to Compete?
Can You Promise Never to Cheat?
When The Time Comes to Push or to Shove,
Will You Be Able to Check Off
All of Thee Above?
Will You Hold Me When Nights Grow Cold?
Will You Stay Till We Grow Old?
Will You Be Able to State,
You've Never Told a Lie Since Our First Date?
When The Time Comes to Push or to Shove,
Will You Be Able to Check Off 
All Of Thee Above?
From The Heavens I Give My Love.
When it Comes Time To Push or to Shove,
Will You Be Able to Check Off
All of Thee Above?

Dance and Dream

I've Spent My Life Shuffling Around. Head in the Clouds,
Feet Putting it Down.
Young, Old or in my teens,
Dance Explodes in My Dreams.
I've Danced with So Many Pretty Faces,
Sharing the SpotLight in So Many Places.
I've experienced Creative Spurts.
I've worked with Choreographers
who were Jerks.
I've Danced on Stages With Gaps,
I'm Amazed at Audiences without Knowledge
When to Clap.
Backstage, the Wings,
Mistakes that Sting.
All apart of My Life,
as I Continue to
DANCE and DREAM..!
5--6--7--8..!

The Front Row

Waiting Anxiously To See,
Choreography Created by Me.
Where Did It Originate From?
I Can't Say That I Really Know.
Music Seems to Provide The Flow.
At First, I Might Do It a Certain Way.
The Next Time I Might Add a Sway.
Will It Meet My Approval?
Only If The Dancers Dance
Better Than Their Usual.
Dancers Say That I'm Hard To Please.
Just Dance Full Out, Don't Just
Give Me a Tease.
Make Every Step LIVE.
Show Me All That You Have To Give.
I'll Be Watching, IN THE FRONT ROW.
Dance From Your Heart.
Show Me Passion, Emotion, Let It All Go.
Make Me Feel Something Beyond My Expectations.
Capture Me With Sensation.
I Want To See You Glow.
Thats Why I Chose To Sit In
THE FRONT ROW.

The Winds of Time

Your Heart and Mine?
Will Love Survive
The Winds of Time?

Lost For Love, 
Afraid To Give My Heart
I Know I Should.

Temptations Everyday,
Games Are Required to Play.
While I Search For Loves Key,
Open My Heart, Set It Free.

Lasting Love on Candles Glow
Broken Hearts Always Show.
Only One Thing On My Mind,
Will Love Survive,
The Winds of Time?
