lies and truth

After all these years, I find you here,

life is so very strange.

Gathered here, are all my fears.

Will we all fade away?

All I can see, Is desire before me.

My grasping hands, bright with flames.

All I hear are words in my ear,

Telling me it can’t all be my way.

I hear her say;

Plans and schemes may color our dreams.

Until they fade in the light of day.

Lies And Truth are the colors of youth,

until they blend into gray.

I can only see before me

desire’s dancing flame.

Claiming mine, the light of love.

Drove my grasping hands insane.

WINDOWS

I’m looking out my window
through my foggy pain
so many empty spaces
is it my move again

I can not see tomorrow
it’s so unclear today
we are the only losers
in this game we both play

I’m looking out my window
through a melancholy frame
rain drops won’t fill the spaces
between our shuttered pain

I’m outside my window
rain falling all around
washing off the distance
memories on the ground

You Say You Don’t Love Me

You Say You Don’t Love Me

I know that’s a lie

If you don’t love me

What’s that tear in you’re goodbye?

**

When you Say You Don’t Love Me

you don’t look in my eyes

That’s why I say babe

It’s just a lie!

**

I’ll say I love you

I need no reason why

Must be that something

I see flashing in your eye.

**

So don’t say you don’t love me

I’ll know that’s a lie

You let a tear out

And dropped it in my eye.

**

Now everything’s blue

I see oceans in the sky

All I was asking for is

One reason why.

**

You Say You Don’t Love Me!

World Blue

My whole world is blue.

Ever since I lost you

I don’t know what to do.

You left my World Blue.

.

You never said why.

Never said goodbye.

Just left my heart

here to die.

.

What did I do?

Did you find someone new?

No no no I won’t cry

I’ll hold this blue world inside.

.

You never said why.

Never said goodbye.

Just left my heart

Here to die.

.

But I will never cry

No, you can’t make me cry

What’s this

In my eye?

Bald Eagle

My baby, she’s one spread eagle.

Makes me wonder if it’s all for me.

She blames that science,

says it’s fate boy.

I don’t believe in destiny.

No no there’s no destiny.

.

She flies high,

she’s one Bald Eagle.

Flying high

on her bald faced lies.

OOOH she flies too high.

.

Her right, her left

wings are uneven.

She’s going to fall

from a stormy sky.

ooh oh she flies too high.

.

Could have been a turkey

when she had her chance.

Wear bright colors and dance.

Wear bright colors and dance.

The Station

Take me to The Station,

I’ve got to greet that early train.

If I’m not on that platform,

she’ll turn that train around again.

.

I’m in a new suit,

borrowed from my best friend.

Get me on that platform,

I’ll never look this good again.

.

It’s not all my fault.

That woman plays these tricks on me.

She drags me to that station,

arriving on the 4:20.

.

You got to treat your man right

Don’t treat me like I’m your son;

I don’t arrive at your station

on the one fifty one.

.

Take me to The Station

I’ve got to greet that early train.

A POCKET FULL OF SILVER

A Pocket Full Of Silver,

a hand full of gold.

She’s not the kind

I can buy.

.

If I come on

with the same same old.

She’ll probably just

walk on by.

.

I have to speak

to my inner man.

I have to make

me understand.

.

They get so tired of the

same same old.

I’ve got to change

my game plan.

.

A hand full of flowers,

a ticket to a show.

Worth more than silver or gold.

I know, I know,

.

It’s still the same same old.

But I have to try.

Excuse me while I talk

to my inner man.

…………………….

He said:

…………………….

Change your game plan.

A big bright smile,

a twinkle in the eye.

Worth more than flowers or gold.

,

An open door, a walk outside.

A hug against the cold.

Tea for two, a matinée,

Zela at the Root Cafe.

,

I know I know.

But it’s better than.

A Pocket Full of Silver,

a hand full of gold.
