You Should Have Asked Before

"If it sounds country, that's what it is; it's a country song..." Kris Kristofferson

Well hello, it's been a long time, But at least you know my name. So let's pass the time, with a glass of wine Like things were just the same. And it's really good to see you, But there's something you should know. So if that's all you really came here for, You should have asked before. The summer's gone and your world's turned cold, And you knew that I'd be here. Say what's on your mind...Read On

The Dancer Who Dreamed He Could Fly

A song for Marc (1947 - 1977) Born To Boogie

"If fame is an illusion," said the Wizard to the Face, "The past is all confusion and now's the only place. From the earth to the September sky, Like a dancer who dreamed he could fly "The time has come," the Wizard said. " To get up on the stage. With your corkscrew mane and silver train, like a Botticelli sage." From the earth to the September sky, Like a dancer who dreamed he could fly....Read On

The Kisses And The Wine

'I cried for madder music and stronger wine' Ernest Dowson

On a bleak November day An empty beach, the tourists gone away, But the lights still dance along the promenade.   Pleasure boats with painted names Lie beached, until the summer comes again, While the fortress keeps a vigil on the shore.   The city sung it's siren song, Far too loud, for far too long And drew me to the kisses and the wine.   So as I look far out to sea And feel...Read On

Cloud Cuckoo Land

Carousel spinning round and round Painted horses guard the killing ground Houdini’s ghost lends a helping hand Save your prayers for Superman Charcoal skies and hornet’s nests Soldiers dressed in their Sunday best Behind them plays a marching band Welcome to Cloud Cuckoo Land   Mirrors reflect a blood red sea The lion tamer sips his tea Ribbon dancers comes undone Burning under...Read On

The Way You Are

You find so many people are bruising But you, you are mostly amusing I like the way you love. You do it like a foxglove. I like the way you dance. You do it like a stance. You find so many people are runny But you, you are mostly funny I love the way your hair flows, Spreading your style everywhere. You're like a style fountain. Enough zazz for a whole mountain. You find so many people...Read On

She’s gonna be buried with them, and she worried ‘bout how I might tend her grave if she went first. So I wrote...Read On

Table for two

I wrote this 2 years back, hope you will enjoy it

Table for two   Rise of the fallen Sleeping off dreams that were stolen Santa late for work, Santa down and snoring. Everybody needs a break sometimes, A reality check sometimes.  But the reality checks keep bouncing….. So I’m swallowing wrong pills Hoping this shit heals Sometimes two wrongs can make a right, Like two thongs can make my night. So I sit here wondering if I’m able  To pull...Read On

Alone

Everybody's gone out again Everyone has left me here Alone am I to trudge on through Thoughts and lonely fear They know not what they play with A composite soul of dread If only someone welcomed me As if they were one of the dead Oh, but what's this? Yet another being is here Come closer, dear friend Come closer, have no fear Why you appear to be fine Would you like a peek inside my mind?...Read On

Frozen Tundra

Am I dreaming?

The snow was frozen, sparkling in the moonlight.What have I done? How did I lose sight? Did I walk away from the fight that night when you told me not to run? When will our time come? After I begged you to take flight. Broken promises Inside I scream Wake me from this dream When I get lost amongst the willingly tossed will you hear me shout your name? Will it sound the same as it did...Read On

Hopeless Dream

I don't want to hear it. All about how you became this way, Or any way at all. Face all the facts. It was your decision to make your life hell, And now you fall. But don't you tell me such a whiny story. I don't want to hear it, 'cause... Take away the drugs. Take away the booze. Take away the pain that's in the news. Take away the screaming. Take a way the fighting. What is left...Read On

Indian Princess

A woman comes to the end of her life

There’s this old tree stump out in the woods behind my house that I love to sit on. I first found it, at least, twenty years ago and sitting there has brought me much enjoyment for many seasons. When one takes the time to look, there are many wonders constantly taking place in the forest. Parts of the stump are long since rotted away, but there’s enough of the heart left to afford me a...Read On

Safeguard

Inspired by The Gazette's Pledge

Every time that I'm alone I can’t take it! My mind is screaming Now that I stand here Torn up thoughts like scraps of paper I can't do this I am suffocating Save me, I'm asking won't you please save me? I have been lost so long I feel cast away at sea Now my thoughts they swim, my mind sinking I need you to please, Need you to Save me... I'll try and surface from the...Read On

My 25th Beer Anniversary

A Country song where beer makes one woman really pretty

The woman in my life had just left me. She said I’m a loser and a perpetual drunk. I don’t know if she was degrading me. She’s ugly, but she sure had spunk. I went to the bar feeling lonely. My tail had no wag as I drank. A woman just sat down beside me. She asked me if she could be Frank. I said, “Frank, you can be who you want to. If you’d like I can buy you a...Read On

In The Depth Of Her Eyes

Look into her eyes and see her true beauty.

A once empty heart now feels full Tugged by another soul’s pull Crossing the pass on a wire Warmed by another souls fire Look deep inside of her eyes Find beauty there few ever see Look and learn from her heart What others could not hope to be In the depth of her eyes When the first light of day fills the room You know she will have to leave soon Now your heart feels empty and torn You...Read On

We live our lives inside a dream Believe we know what it all means I tried to show you what I thought was real And can’t you see It’s hurting me I won’t let go And I want you to know That it’s you You mean that much to me Taking time to watch love grow Questioning what wouldn’t show I always told you just how much I cared Yet you won’t tell What your heart felt I’m letting go And I want...Read On
