Postcards

 

I’ve read your postcards

and the letters that you sent me

ane day in the summer of last year

 

I really hope

your feeling special

really hope you’re doing fine

I really hoped

that we would never part

 

But your first touch

was like the sunshine

staring out against the clouds

covering me with warmth everyday

 

And your first kiss

was like the sunset

moonlit glow against the tides

 

Shimmering and radiant

a vibrant glow so decadent

 

I have your lipstick

on the dresser where you left it

one night in the winter of last year

 

I really hope

you’d come back for it

really hoped, you would stop by

one step closer to recovery

 

 

 

Break Up

 

I don’t know if I’ll ever wake up

but I’m dying to see, I’m dying to see

 

I don’t think I can stand this breakup

but I’m dying to see, I’m dying to see

 

but the look on your face is like so

you’re ready to go, you’re ready to go

 

And I’m trying all I can

to be a better man, to be a better person

but these things inside can’t cure

 

And I’m trying to get by

in the blink of an eye, the blink of an eye

 

I don’t know if we’ll ever get back

to the way it should be, the way it should be

 

And I don’t think we can shake a make up

but I’m dying to see, I’m dying to see

 

But the look on your face was like so

you’re ready to go, you’re ready to go

 

And I’m trying all I can

to be a better man, to be a better person

but these things inside can’t cure

 

And I’m trying to get by

in the blink of an eye, the blink of an eye

the blink of an eye

 

 

 

Time Flies By

 

Time is going by

faster than I’d

like to notice here

 

And we,

 

We are all grown up

and things never change

Maybe the faces

and the places we have been

 

So hold on now

and brace for a long ride

it won’t be a rough ride

 

And buckle up

it might take a while

but it’s worth it

to see you smile

 

 

 

Alone

 

Sometimes

I feel so alone inside

can’t hide my fear again

 

You burnt me up

and spit me out

 

When we came

face to face again

 

It felt so right

but it also felt wrong

how could we love again

 

You comforted me

and made me see

that I still feel alone

 

 

Shooting Star

 

Remember the times

we laid down on the car

 

Watching airplanes land

down by the boulevard

 

The air was so cold

our jackets not that warm

so we lay a little closer

 

You’re my shooting star

 

And it won’t matter where you are

I know you’re right here with me

 

And you’re not far away

I’ll look up and hear you say

those three words

 

And things will be ok

 

 

 

What’s Next

 

As I lay in my bed

wondering what’s next

counting the tiles

till the end of the hall

 

Thinking of you

and all we’ve been through

feels like forever, we sang out that song

 

And now here it is

 

I love when we sit on the front porch

watching the world go by

sat on our beach blankets

then we cried

 

I loved when we kissed

your tongue was so sweet

 

The smell of your hair

made me complete

 

 

 

For A While

 

Everyday,

 

I’ll sit down for a while

and think of ways

to make you smile

 

When you are

not very near

I think of ways

to get you here

 

When you are feeling sad

I know the ways

to make you glad

 

Everyday

I’ll sit down for awhile

 

And think of ways

to make you smile

 

 

 

The Watcher

 

As I watch,

out my window

 

Watching

The cars rolling by

 

I wonder

 

What if

when

why

or how

 

And come

to no conclusions

 

But faded dreams

faded jeans

 

And faded memories

 

 

 

Sometimes

 

Sometimes I wonder

if I will live forever

 

I wonder,

if the clouds go home at night

 

And I’m thinking

of my loved ones

every moment of the day

 

Sometimes,

I think the world

is at its end

 

Sometimes,

I sit around

and just pretend

 

I think of the days

that have all passed me by

I feel I have wasted my whole life

 

So tell me,

is this the way

please tell me, I’m not crazy

 

Somehow I know

I can’t hold my own

 

so what am I to do

 

 

 

Pacific Sun

 

Pacific Sun,

 

You had me at goodbye

I love all your beauty

 

As you set down over Los Angeles

 

You make me, feel warm here

you make me feel wanted

 

On your journey

from the east coast to the west

 

So keep on shining

and keep on burning

and keep on moving

 

So I can

keep on watching

keep on wishing

keep on waiting

 

For my Pacific Sun

 

 

 

Tonight Will Be Our Night

 

This house is so empty

no pictures on the wall

 

Faded paint and memories

followed down the hall

 

And I think

of those times

we sat down by the bay

choosing our words carefully

when we don’t know what to say

 

So I’ll stay here waiting

as long as it takes, to get it right

 

And we’ll stop losing

as tonight, will be our night

 

As long as you’re willing

we can find a way

 

To pick back up the pieces

we have lost along the way

 

And I think

of those times

we sat down by the bay

choosing our words carefully

when we don’t know what to say

 

So I’ll stay here waiting

as long as it takes, to get it right

 

And we’ll stop losing

as tonight, will be our night

 

 

 

Back To Vegas

 

Are you stopping by to see me

or am I just here alone

 

Will you send it in a letter

or call, on my cell phone

 

And the daylight’s, getting thinner

as the night time closes in

 

So I’m sitting here

waiting for you

like I did back when

 

So where are you now

are you going back to Vegas

are you leaving, this small town

 

Then don’t turn around,

 

If there’s nothing here for you

than the one who still adores you

 

Right now

 

 

 

The Drive

 

These warm summer nights

I stare up at the sky

 

Stars shine like diamonds

moons my candlelight

 

Street lights, spell your name

like the billboards in LA

 

Fleeting moments pass

then there gone forever

 

And the wind will whisper

love songs in my ear

and I’ll say

 

Goes by,

 

These lines go by fast

and stretch out long

I can’t think of anything

 

So tired

from all of these miles

street signs fade

I can’t think of anything

 

The leather is cold

when you’re all alone

 

I count all these miles

so I can rush back home

 

Then I’ll see you standing there

with a radiant stare

 

And I can’t think, of anything better

feels I’ve been gone forever

 

 

 

Thinking Of You

 

Keep my letters by the phone

to remind you, that you’re not alone

 

I’ll be here, thinking of you

and all that you are going through

 

I can’t wait another day

to hear, that you are doing okay

 

Take my pictures from your bag

and look at them, when you are sad

 

I’ll be here wondering what to do

I’m here, thinking of you

 

I can’t think of things to say

and this all, just fades away

 

And it sucks, you’re really far

I’ll find you

no matter where you are

 

I’ll keep thinking of you

and all that you are going through

 

 

 

The Pessimist

 

I can’t wait another day

for you to pass me by

 

Ignorance is bliss they say So

I’ll give it one more try

 

I say hello

you always walk on by

always sticking up your nose,

 

Is it because You dress like them

in your fancy clothes

 

I’ll try to catch up to you

to see how was your day

 

But the response

please go away

 

Maybe someday I’ll win over your heart

 

Ignorance is bliss they say So

I’ll give it one more shot

 

 

 

Captains

 

Tell me, what I’ve done

 

And I’ll try to make adjustments

in the man that I’ve become

 

I’ve searched, so hard for you

for you to go and tell me

that we might be through

 

So captains,

 

Untether your boats

let’s sail, to a land so far away

 

And watchmen,

 

Climb up from the decks

who knows

what we’ll find along the way

 

And I’ll miss you to

if you say, you and me are through

 

But I’ll be back soon

 

So captains,

 

Untether your boats

let’s sail, to a land so far away

 

And watchmen,

 

Climb up from the decks

who knows

what we’ll find along the way

 

 

 

Take Me Tonight

 

These walls won’t stand alone

feels like I’m holding my own

 

In a world that never sees

I’m begging you

begging you please

 

Take me tonight

my arms, are open wide for you

 

And turn down the lights

my heart, will beat so hard for you

 

My head is hanging down

feels like, I can’t touch the ground

 

In a world that never sees

I’m begging you

begging you please

 

Take me tonight

my arms, are open wide for you

 

And turn down the lights

my heart, will beat so hard for you

so hard for you

 

 

 

Forever

 

When I looked into your eyes

I could see we’d be together

 

And when I saw that smile

it was stuck in my mind forever

 

I couldn’t escape, these thoughts of you

 

My rainy days

turned to skies of blue

I only want to be with you

 

Now that the years have past

and the days roll on

 

I hoped to God

you make me strong

 

And every night

I kneel and pray

I scream out loud

you’ll hear me say

 

You’re the one,

the one that I want more

 

You’re the one,

who makes me feel secure

 

You’re the one,

I’d give up all my time

 

Someway somehow

I’ll find a way

 

A way to make you mine

 

 

 

Dreaming

 

Hello,

my name is lost

 

And I’d like to take you out

for a drink and see

how we could

we could live so happily

 

And I think

of all those times

I thought about you

 

And how

I never stopped

squeezing you

and I never could

see right through

 

I was dreaming,

 

About the things, I could have had

 

And I’ll think all day

and think all night

and I can’t

I can’t find a place

 

And I’m shaking

and wondering about you

 

And how

I never stopped

squeezing you

and I never could

see right through

 

I’m dreaming

 

 

 

Without You

 

I am lost,

 

I can’t find myself

in this tragedy

I call home

 

You weren’t there

with no thoughts to share

you left my heart

on a string

 

And I wondered

why you had, to go away

 

And I wish that

I had something more to say

 

You weren’t there,

with no thoughts to share

 

You ripped a hole

right through my chest

 

And I wondered,

why you had to go away

 

And I wished that,

I had something more to say

 

So bye now, bye now

I’m without you

 

 

 

Don’t Let Me Fall

 

Here I am

speaking in riddles

 

When I can’t, find things to say

 

All these things

seem important

 

But they all, will fade away

 

So don’t let me fall

please not today

I swear I’ll be there more

 

Like everyday,

 

All these things I have said

and things I have done

are nothing compared

to what I’ve become

 

So don’t let me fall

 

 

 

Single Man

 

Time and time

I have crawled to you

never felt right all along

 

Well it’s lonely here

with pictures on my wall

and the bed sheets smell

like old perfume

 

Sitting on this chair

with familiar stares

and I’m wondering

about you

 

So take the time

to come back home

 

Life is better

when you’re not alone

 

Please don’t tell me, that you can’t

 

I know the world’s a busy place

for a single man

 

 

 

Waste Of Time

 

I’ll never understand it

feels I’ve been gone so long

 

And you,

 

Always misconstrue it

flipping all my words around

 

You,

always know

what’s on my mind

 

And you,

make me feel

like a waste of time

 

I always disappoint you

you even said it yourself

 

And I,

 

Always hang around you

begging like a dog in heat

 

But you,

always know

what’s on my mind

 

And you,

 

Make me feel

like a waste of time

 

Time grabs me by the arm

now I feel

I don’t belong with you

 

 

 

Chair In The Sand

 

I left my old lady

and joined in the Navy

so I could have someplace to go

 

California’s not able

and Boston’s not stable for most

 

Well a couple of drunk nights

and many a bar fight

has left me with no place to go

 

So I’ll pack all my bags

and head to ole Mexico

 

Put a chair in the sand

a drink in my hand

and forget, what I used to know

 

So I’ll pack all my bags

and head to ole Mexico

 

Now Betty’s a barfly

McGregor’s a nice guy

but they don’t get along, this I know

 

So I’ll pack all my bags

and head to ole Mexico

 

Put a chair in the sand

a drink in my hand

and forget, what I used to know

 

 

 

Come Back Home

 

Came,

to your house yesterday

 

But you were away

a letter said you’re gone

 

The gate outside was padlocked

right then, my heart had stopped

 

How could I press on

 

I can’t find words to say

but I’ll still write you

one love letter a day

 

Please come back home

 

 

 

Soldier From Here

 

I woke up this morning

had tears in my eyes

 

Packed up my bags

and said my goodbyes

 

The ride to the airport

is one thing I know

and my uniform

takes me so far from home

 

I’ll fly away

into the sky

 

Say a prayer

but don’t you cry

 

I’ll keep you safe

even though, you’re not near

 

It’s my job

to be a soldier from here

 

 

 

Drive Me Wild

 

There is something

in the way you look

 

Something,

in the way you smile

 

Something,

in the way you talk

that can drive me wild

 

There are somethings

I could never say

 

When my life

has gone astray

 

But at the end

of everyday

 

You can drive me wild

 

 

 

The Game

 

I am stuck

in this game again

 

Waiting,

 

For someone to call

it makes no difference

after all

 

So here I go again

I have thrown it all away

and I’ll build that wall again

 

Put the bricks up, piece by piece

on my own

so you can’t get back home

 

And I will fall

or maybe I’ll fail

it’s no matter anyhow

 

Time won’t allow us

to get back on our feet again

 

There is no difference in the end

 

 

 

By The Phone

 

I sat and waited

alone by the phone

 

Waited for your call

seems no one is home

 

I thought about dialing

but hung up the phone

 

It’s sad,

when this house

doesn’t feel like a home

 

So please call me

I can’t stand being alone

 

So please call me

I can’t make it, on my own

 

And I miss you so bad

 

 

 

The Goodbye Note

 

I want to feel like I belong

when it’s hard

to find my place in life

 

I want to wake up

with a smile on my face

 

And tell the world

how right I am

 

I tell myself

it’s not you

it’s them

 

But I’m the one

hurt in the end

 

Still haven’t figured out

why things won’t go my way

I could just use, an easy day

 

So tell them when I’m gone

hey, I tried my best

I have given it my all

it’s just as well

 

I take the fall

 

It won’t matter after all

 

 

 

Too Far Away

 

All these times

I could of lied

 

But Something told me

step aside

 

I saw your face

through my glass

 

You’re not here

and I am not there

by your side

 

I sit here lost

for all the times, I have tried

 

I told myself

it’s been far too long

I want more

more than I can afford myself

 

I want you here

holding my hand

 

I’m not there

you’re too far away

 

So I’ll write this down

to tell you I’m afraid

 

And you’re too far away

 

 

 

Heidi

 

Let me take you

out for a drink tonight

I won’t do you wrong

 

Let me,

pick you up at eight

and we can have a drink

 

Then I can tell you

how beautiful you are

and watch your eyes

twinkle bright

 

Then I’ll tell you

as your hair, blows through the wind

come with me

come with me tonight

 

You’re so beautiful

I have said it before

I’ll tell you once more

I won’t do you wrong

 

I can be your man

 

 

 

I Love You

 

All the things

we went through

hand in hand

it was painless

 

All the hardships

that have come and passed

you were there for it

 

I’d like to thank you

for all the things, you have said

 

And I’d love,

to hold you now

 

To feel you close

 

Your breath,

exchanged with mine

In due time

in due time

 

 

 

Round And Round

 

Is it okay

if I speak to you today

 

I have tried to get through

but no one’s home

 

If it’s alright

could I just stay the night

 

So I can show you

you’re not alone

 

Up and down

round and round

you have me spun

right to the ground

 

And I’m out of control

 

In and out

side to side

these things for you

I just can’t hide

 

You make me,

go round and round

 

 

 

Losing You

 

I’ll back down again

and say

we can’t be friends

 

I feel,

I am overwhelmed

And I’m losing you tonight

 

Though my thoughts

can’t be heard

 

You ignored

my every word

and I’m losing you tonight

 

I feel the tension

in the air

I’m losing you tonight

 

 

 

What If

 

What if,

I came home

with perfume on my neck

 

Would you still love me

 

What if,

I said things

you didn’t want to hear

 

Would you stick beside me

 

What if,

I came home

with booze upon my breath

 

Smelling like an ashtray

 

Would you want to kiss me

or, would you be real angry

 

You’re all I ever want

and all I’ll ever need

 

But,

 

What if

 

 

 

Again

 

Look at me

I am sitting on this park bench

looking at the trees

 

They are colorful and beautiful

like you are to me

 

When they change colors leaf by leaf

 

It makes me want to feel you close

I don’t think you’ll ever know

what you meant to me

 

So when, will I see you again

 

 

 

Through My Blinds

 

Through my blinds

I find all kinds of things

 

To call mine,

 

With every breath I take

reminds me of the wind

blowing through the trees

 

For every tear I cry,

 

Reminds me of

a summer storm

rolling on by

 

So I sigh,

 

As the time goes by

 

Through my blinds

 

 

 

Coming Home To You

 

Taking,

the last train from Boston

watching the sun

as it starts to set

 

What have I done

 

I can’t put my finger on it

broken pieces

hurt too much to mend

 

What have I done

 

But you’re always saying please

never give up

do what you believe

 

So now,

I’m coming home to you

 

Took,

the first cab to your door

with a dozen roses in my hand

 

What have I done

 

I can’t put my finger on it

broken pieces

hurt too much to mend

 

What have I done

 

But you’re always saying please

never give up

do what you believe

 

So now,

I’m coming home to you

 

 

 

Carry On

 

As I sit

down by the bay

 

I wondered why

I left this place

 

You’re so wonderful to be with

so I’ll be back someday

 

Carry on, carry on

 

And the waves

they crash all night

with the moonlight shining

 

Then the sun will rise again

you’re in my heart, until the end

 

Tell me now

what am I to say

when all these words

they fade away

 

Carry on, carry on

 

 

 

Let Me Be

 

Let me be who I’m going to be

let me feel the way I feel

let me think the way I think

and things are okay

 

Let me soar high in the sky

let me spread my wings and fly

take a chance to tell you why

and things are okay

 

But you did this to me

held your breath, and waited

 

You took too long, and now I’m

feeling jaded

 

Let me stare when I want to stare

let me dream when I want to dream

let me cry when I want to cry

and things are okay

 

Let me be who I’m going to be

let me feel the way I feel

let me think the way I think

and things are okay

 

But you did this to me

held your breath, and waited

 

Took too long, and now I’m

feeling jaded

 

 

 

Remember When

 

Remember,

when we were young

 

We’d sit around

have some fun

 

Remember,

when we turned eighteen

the world so big

with lots to be seen

 

Then we struck out in the world

same old story

about a boy meets girl

 

Then I asked you to meet

breakfast at Tiffany’s

was real sweet

 

One day when we grow old

the memories we have

will be ours to hold

 

Remember,

when we turned thirty five

 

Had kids of our own

and made our own lives

 

Then we struck out in the world

same old story

about a boy meets girl

 

Then I’ll ask you, again to meet

catching up is always so sweet

 

 

 

As We Go

 

If I ever close my eyes

and think of that moment before

it will always come back to me

 

After all we’ve been through

 

Just think,

of the things we can do

 

It will always come back to you

 

So take me far away

let’s write down

things we would say

 

Let’s run our feet in the sand

and take a trip

to a faraway land

 

Let’s take things as we go

no one else has to know

 

If I ever wondered why,

I’ll just think of that moment before

it will always come back to me

 

After all we’ve been through

 

Just think,

of the things we can do

 

It will always come back to you

 

 

 

Take Me With You

 

The things that I told you

they all just fade away

 

And somehow I wished

you wanted me to stay

 

The things that I’ve said

the things we have done

will be buried

 

So don’t look back

I’ll be thinking, I’ll be dreaming

 

And I smell your perfume

from across the room

 

Take me with you

 

Your hair was so gold

as it blew in the wind

 

And the airplane was cold

from the places it has been

 

I sit here and hold

my head in my hands

 

As you sat by the window

I just lost my best friend

 

Take me with you

 

 

 

Tell Me

 

I wish that you would come

but I know right now

I’m not the only one

 

I wish that you were here

so I could lay my head

and calm my fears

 

So tell me that you love me

and tell me that you care

 

Say you’ll never leave me

and you’ll always be there

 

So tell me that you love me

and take away my pain

 

So I can live this life

with the things

I’ve done in vain

 

 

 

There For Me

 

Sometimes,

when it gets too hard to breathe

you were there for me

 

When I couldn’t

hardly see it through

you were there for me

 

Like when,

I walked you to your door

I didn’t want to leave

you stood there for me

 

Sometimes,

it gets so cold outside

then I wonder

will I make it out alive

 

So I close my eyes

and think of you

Then I will never freeze

 

You are there for me

 

And I wonder,

do the stars go home at night

or do they shine on

 

Everything will be alright

 

Sometimes,

when the sun is shining bright

you are there for me

to shade me from the light

 

You are there for me

 

 

 

The Road

 

I drink all my whiskey

from an old masons jar

and I smoke

too many cigarettes

 

Sometimes I get lonely

when I’m really far

and the road

never lets me forget

 

As trees rush on by

on highway 495

I can hear you

in the back of my mind

 

Saying go on be safe

but hurry back home

 

I’ll be here,

just don’t take too long

 

Now I’m out on the road

just holding my own

and the cities

they change like the wind

 

But the lights on the marquee

they barely get old

 

Like the towns

and the places I’ve been

 

Now me and the wife

we barely get by

 

But there’s one thing

that I know for sure

 

All the struggles we had

have all passed us by

 

Like they have

every other time before

 

Now I’m out on the road

just holding my own

 

I’ll be home soon

I won’t take too long

 

 

 

Lately

 

Lately,

 

I have been thinking

about you

 

Lately,

 

I’ve been wondering

just what to do

 

Maybe,

 

I’ve been

holding in my cries

 

But we know now

it’s not too late

 

And I want that,

 

Just me and you

paired as two

 

Walking Central Park

 

 

 

I Want You Back

 

I’m sitting here waiting for you

I don’t know

what am I to do

 

You left me here

all alone

with nothing in this house

to call my own

 

So I want you back

but things will never change

 

Same routine I guess

things just stay the same

 

And I need you more

more than you will ever know

 

There is more, I have to share

 

So please take it from me

 

I am more than half the man

you thought I would be

 

What more should I do

go outside and scream

 

I LOVE YOU

 

Now, I want you back

more than you should know

 

There is more, I have to share

there is more, you need to know

but you’ll never change

things will always, stay the same

 

 

 

Out My Window

 

As I stare out the window

watching the clouds go rolling by

 

I think of you,

 

As I stare out my window

watching the people walk on by

 

I dream of you,

 

And I want you so much

it hurts

 

I want to squeeze you

till you burst

 

I want to taste

your lips on mine

 

And I want you to know

till the end of time

 

Just like my window

you’ll always be mine

 

 

 

Tonight

 

Tell me tonight

that you love me

 

And tell me tonight

that you care

 

I’ll tell you tonight

I don’t want you to go home

 

And tell me tonight

you’ll be there

 

I know you’ll be right here

when I fall

 

I know you’ll hold my hand

through it all

 

I know we’ll love again

so please take my hand

 

Be my girlfriend,

 

So tell me tonight

that you hate me

 

I’ll tell you tonight

if I care

 

Tell me tonight

that you want me to go home

 

I’ll tell you off tonight

this I swear

 

And you won’t be there

when I fall

 

Never hold my hand

no not at all

 

Someday, you will love again

just not with me

 

 

 

Right One For Me

 

Let’s give it up

so no one else will find out

what we’ve done last night

 

Can you keep a secret

from your mom and dad

don’t let them know

that I love you

 

You are the right one for me

and I don’t know

why when or how

 

I never gave a second thought

as why we are together

 

Skies have cleared

and the weathers getting fine

 

 

 

Lost Without My Brain

 

Why can’t I find an escape

from this hell I am living in

 

Struck down from society

my hands my only friend

 

Why can’t I find a solution

to this problem that I’ve got

 

Should I find a way to ignore it

or just try to explore it

 

Am I insane,

 

Do you think that I am

 

Well that doesn’t mean a thing

 

I start flipping out

every time my phone rings

 

So I am lost without my brain

and I can’t regain it back

 

Won’t you tell me

just where I went wrong

 

 

 

My History

 

I came home

to find all my stuff

piled on the lawn

 

She told me

this was the last time

you have done me wrong

 

I can’t remember

when I did

all those things you said

 

Now I come home

to find another man in my bed

 

So I’m not the one to blame

and you should be ashamed

that you,

ripped my heart in two

 

And I want nothing more

then to see you

come back for more

 

You and me

we are through

 

The next day

she knocked, upon my door

 

She told me

she was wrong

like so many times

I heard this before

 

And I, still can’t remember

when I did all those things you said

 

To come home

and find another man in my bed

 

So I’m not the one to blame

and you should be ashamed

that you,

ripped my heart in two

 

And I want nothing more

then to see you

come back for more

 

You and me

we are through

 

 

 

Another Love Song

 

And I,

wanted it to be

 

Something more

than just

another thought of you

 

And I,

feel I’m all alone

 

All alone,

in a great big shell

I call my home

 

My tears,

running down my face

 

Causes me to think

of what I have done

 

And my heart,

is pounding out my chest

 

Feels like,

I can’t catch my breath

 

It’s not a mystery to me

It’s how I feel

 

Looks like I am sleeping

all alone again

 

And you’re,

everywhere I go

 

I’m not noticed

just laughed at again

 

This sucks,

I’ll never get laid

 

I’ll never hear you

call out my name

 

And I,

feel I’m so alone

 

All alone in a great big shell

I call my home

 

 

 

Nothing Much

 

All these things

I said to you

have all passed me by

 

And all those words

I’ve spoken to you

that made you cry

 

I sound too demanding

and you’re right

 

You look, frightened tonight

 

You said to me

you’re leaving

 

You said to me

I am nothing much

 

Well time,

is not on my side now

I feel I’ve been cheated

 

I’m lost and can’t be found

you were my only ground

 

You said to me

you’re leaving

you said to me

I am nothing much

 

I guess, she’s leaving nothing much

 

 

 

Sunshine

 

I look forward

to the sunshine

 

But what if

it went away

 

Through the darkness

then I would see

no silhouette of me

 

 

 

What if,

 

The sunshine came back

and made my shadow

appear then crack

 

I would pick it up

and carry it on my back

 

I look forward

to the sunshine

 

 

 

I Can’t Wait Here

 

It’s been such a long time

how have you been

 

I don’t know

if I’ll ever see you again

but I will wait here

 

It would be good to see you

I thought you should know

 

I’ve carried your photo

wherever I go

 

You mean so much to me

and you’re all that I see

 

There’s no place I’d rather be

than in your arms

for eternity

 

Hello and goodbye

my dearest friend

 

I am so glad

I’ve been able, to see you again

 

Was real good to see you

I just want you to know

 

I’ve carried your photo

wherever I go

 

But I can’t wait here

 

 

 

My Old Town

 

I drove through my old town

like I have,

a hundred times before

 

Things still seem the same

but I wanted something more

 

The feelings I have

are all mixed up inside

 

Some of them good

some of them I try to hide

 

The houses have changed

some older and worn

 

The pavement looks cracked

from the cold winter storms

 

But all in all

this town’s held its own

 

Even though, not one house

is a house

I call home

 

 

 

The Sky Is On Fire

 

The sky is on fire

the sky is on fire

 

What do I do

what do I do

 

Should I use the hydrant

to put out the flames

 

Should I use my mind

to save me from pain

 

Will it ever burn out

or toast us alive

 

These things,

I can’t answer

these things,

I can’t hide

 

Maybe in time

it will ash out

 

The sky is on fire

without any doubt

 

So let’s sit and wait

and see what becomes

 

If we burn up

then see how we run

 

The sky is on fire

what do we do

 

I say wait a bit

maybe we’ll pull through

 

 

 

Hiding

 

I sit here

with the breeze

blowing on my neck

 

The window is open

I can hear the birds singing

 

I somehow can’t process

these things that I feel

 

Should I tuck them

deep inside

 

Put on my mask

so I can just hide

 

That’s how I feel

 

No,

 

Put on your brave face

it’s okay come out

put it on and waste the day

 

They won’t see through

this I can swear

 

I’ll hide behind something

if not from the air

 

Maybe the wind

or maybe the clouds

 

It makes no sense

to sit here and shrew

I’ll put on my fake smile

I’ll wear it for you

 

 

 

An Altered Mind

 

Hello there,

what do you say

do you know me

 

I am the darkness

I am the snake

 

I am the shadow

behind that door

 

I am the demon

that haunts forevermore

 

I am the one

that hides under the bed

 

That makes all that noise

that gets in your head

 

I am the one

who can rattle that brain

 

I am the one

they call insane

 

Get yourself together

and maybe I’ll go

 

It will be our little secret

no one needs to know

 

 

 

Time

 

Time,

what is time

 

I’d like to alter it

maybe hit rewind

 

Let’s take,

the hands on the clock

 

Spin them backwards

fast enough for time to stop

 

Let’s reflect on the past

just a moment

 

It won’t last

 

Let’s do the things

we wished we had done

 

We have some time

so let’s have some fun

 

We’ll create a new path

maybe through dirt

maybe through grass

 

Everyone needs

a do over

 

Everyone needs

a million do overs

 

But there’s not enough time

 

 

 

Mind Freak

 

You would lose your mind

trying to understand mine

 

You would lose your soul

 

If you knew

what I know

 

You couldn’t understand

when I am left

with my idle hands

 

And I look to the mirror

what do I see

 

Just an empty shell

staring back at me

 

I’m just a man

trying to break free

 

But I feel like a mind freak

that’s become me

 

 

 

Close My Eyes

 

If I ever close my eyes

and think,

of the times we’ve had

 

If I ever close my eyes

and think,

of those moments

that made us who we are

 

I will be there, waiting for you

 

I will be there hoping

for us to pull through

 

I don’t want to be over you

I just want to feel like you do

 

Everyday in everyway

like you do

 

So I’ll never close my eyes

and everything will be fine

 

Everything’s just fine

everything seems fine

 

 

 

Seasons

 

When the snow

starts to fall

 

It quiets down

one and all

 

As the rain

hits the ground

 

It makes that

pitter patter sound

 

Then the sun

comes out to play

 

It gives all life

another day

 

Till the leaves

fall from the trees

 

To make things new

after the freeze

 

 

 

Waiting For My Life

 

All these days

I took for granted

 

And all these nights

I am left alone

 

All these months

they fall behind me

 

All these years

are left unknown

 

Don’t tell me

I caused, all your pain inside

 

I’d rather be left alone

so I can keep my pride

 

I feel I’ve fallen down

too far down to even cry

 

I’d like to lift up again

up again

I’ll tell you why

 

It’s lonely down here

waiting for my life

 

 

 

I Need You

 

I need you,

right here next to me

 

I feel you,

so close to me right now

 

But you never want

to speak to me

 

Never want

to call my name

 

Never want

to lay with me

 

And you always

feel the same

 

I see you,

lying in bed

 

I kiss you,

on your head

 

You don’t care

you should care

 

But you never want

to speak to me

 

Never want

to call my name

 

Never want

to lay with me

and you always

feel the same

 

But, I still need you

 

 

 

The Road Part 2

 

The road

only knows what’s on it

be it tire or soles

 

When we hit the pavement

the sound is deafening

 

The breeze

takes my breath away

whether running or riding

 

Speed

it courses

through my veins

 

The road

only knows what’s on it

 

Now I know

about the road

 

 

 

The Journey

 

Even in the dark

I go forth

 

With an uncanny

wit about me

 

For he who enters

the valley of death

 

Shall not be punished,

 

But rewarded

for their journey

 

And he who comes back

from the journey

 

Shall not be a God

 

But a wiser man indeed

 

 

 

Lightning

 

As the lightning strikes

I see fire from the sky

 

Clouds dancing like jesters

feeding the night

 

As God bowls his last string

we hear the pins drop

 

STRIKE

 

 

 

Thoughts

 

It’s been awhile

since I have awoke

before the sun

 

I forgot

how I liked that slumber

 

The silence,

 

Right before

mother nature

and all her creatures

start the day

 

Before the first bird chirp

before a motors rev

 

I am left with just this,

 

An early morning thought

and the morning dew

 

 

 

Flirting With Disaster

 

I put my phone

over my heart

 

So I can feel the vibration

of your voice,

coming through the speaker

 

So I can feel

closer to you

For at least, one more night

 

It’s a sense of comfort,

 

And peace to know

you’re on the opposite end

 

I don’t like flirting with disaster

but it’s so sweet

 

 

 

As The World Turns

 

The disco ball is bright

but I don’t have the might

to tell you,

how I’m feeling inside

 

As the world slowly turns

and my heart still yearns

for the smell, of your hair tonight

 

So tell me were doing fine

and that you’ll be mine

I can’t tell you, how sorry I am

 

All the beers in this bar

and the smoke of cigars

can’t mend a broken heart

 

So I’ve done all I can

this road never ends

feels like, I am chasing the wind

 

As the world slowly turns

and my heart still yearns

for the smell, of your hair tonight

 

Now the party is over

and I am feeling quite sober

I sit here, collecting my thoughts

 

All the times we’ve had

have not been all bad

they’ve all gone by so fast

 

As the world slowly turns

and different hearts yearn

for different people in life

 

 

 

A House

 

This house

it still stands

 

The walls are all bare

all memories lie here

 

If you can’t see them

close your eyes,

then open them

 

The windows,

all broke

 

The door,

off its hinge

 

A tree stands alone

to mask a cloud

and shade the sun

 

I sit with reverence

 

 

 

The Singer

 

It’s been four days and three nights

till I can come home to you

 

And I can’t think

of a better thing

that I would rather do

 

Been sweaty

and singing all week

just so I can make change

 

But the tip jar is empty

it’s all just one and the same

 

I’m drinking too heavy again

that’s what I seem to do

 

I’ve been listening to Hank

just long enough to get through

 

There’s so many places

now, that I’d rather be

 

Then spinning my wheels

on the highway to route 63

 

So please believe me

when I say,

this road takes its toll

 

As the passing

of cities and towns

makes a man, grow so old

 

I’ll call you,

to tell you I love you

when I’m six towns away

 

But this singers heart

wouldn’t have it

any other way

 

 

 

Together

 

Let me take you on a walk

maybe we can sit and talk

 

Maybe, we could go for a ride

 

Throw our fears away

and just glide

 

With the pavement by our sides

there is no better place

 

We can put the top down

and drive so fast

 

So we won’t,

have to dwell on the past

 

We are together for right now

let’s take this moment

 

And make it, last together
