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

I Came Alive

Who am I?

I was wondering.

So I Came Alive!

*

There is you.

Now I have

another drive.

*

Where am I?

I was wondering,

so I moved on.

*

Where are you?

Did you follow me,

did your heart lead you?

*

Who are we?

Are we one where once

there were two?

*

Look at me.

Am I

the mirror of you?

*

Oh, but it’s true.

I can not love

without you.

*

Do you need me?

I was wondering.

So I Came Alive.

NEVERMORE…

Long ago and far away…

I remember you

like it was yesterday.

.

I remember the kisses you gave…

Before we waved…goodbye.

.

So long ago…

.

Yesterday and days before.

I had to leave, for a distant shore.

Oh, it’s just the nature of war…

I might see you, Nevermore…

.

No no no more.

No no no more

.

Oh no…no…no.

Nevermore!

Just Another Day

Just Another Day.

Sometimes it feels that way.

What can I say?

.

Goodbye is so yesterday.

.

Before you go,

I want you to know.

Baby, I can’t live without you.

.

If you go away,

I will pray, you never

have to live through.

.

Just Another Day.

Sometimes it turns out that way.

What can I say?

.

Goodbye is so yesterday.

.

BRIDGE

.

Just another day.

Please chase those rainclouds  away.

What can I say?

.

Goodbye is so yesterday.

.

While your still here.

Let me whisper in your sweet ear.

Baby, I love you.

.

Don’t go away.

I’m begging you to stay.

Stay, please stay!

.

Just Another Day.

We could work it out someway

If I had my say.

.

Goodbye would never

happen today.

Dream Girl

I hear you call

You don’t know my name

I wonder how you came

To be

In my dream

I hear you calling

and hey

 Did she ask my name

Ask me how I came

to be

alone with me

Am I crazy

or just a

Free spirit

I don’t do what I’m told

You can put me on the street

Leave me in the cold

I’ll find my way back to my dream

of you

calling

You don’t know my name

I wonder how you came

to be

And hey

Did she ask my name

Ask how I came

to be

alone with me

Am I crazy

or just

Do what I do

I got

No thought for you

All I want to be

Is alone with me

Then she came into my dream

She changed my reality

Now I think outside of me

Where are you

Where are you now

I hear you call

I don’t know your name

I wonder how you came

to be

ALMOST AN IRISHMAN

I’m almost An Irishman

I had me half a pint o beer.

I raised me cup into the air

I said Happy New Year.

.

Or was it Saint Patrick’s

I don’t remember when.

And I’ll be giving half a damned

Being half an Irishman.

.

I’m Almost An Irishman

It happens this time all year.

I don’t have a pot o luck

But I do bring good cheer

.

I know you Irish

Love old Patrick dear.

As for me I blame him

For my addiction to green beer.

.

I got one foot in Ireland

One foot in Amerikay.

In case I wake up

And miss Saint Patrick’s day.

.

I’m Almost An Irishman

I had me half a pint o beer.

I raised me cup into the air

I said have a bonny day.

Dance

Hey, I wrote a simple song.

the words are easy, you can sing along.

I don’t even know what they mean.

No?  Tell me, what can you say?

 

What can you, what can you, what can you say?

 

We have so many people

with so many dreams.

When your asleep

is life what it seems?

 

Look at the faces we pass on the way

When we meet love,  We forget what to say.

Tell me, what can we say?

We just DANCE.

 

Oh, I know, the road is long.

Always winding and never down.

Still, nobody knows where they are  going.

No?  Tell me, where are you now?

 

where are you, where are you, where are you now?

 

So many people with so many dreams.

When we’re asleep,

is life what it seems.

 

Look at the faces we pass on the way

When we meet love,  We forget what to say.

Tell me, what can we say?

We just DANCE.
