Even the King

16 05 2015

Because I never knew you
Before I heard you play
Kind words you always sent my way
In life we seldom notice
Never seeing eye to eye
God give me strength before we all die

Road is long
Endless songs
Stories told
To young and old

Into the wind
Never end

Passes through
Every friend
And I don’t want to repeat
Cause life is short and talk is cheap
Even the king gets swept off his feet

Learn while we are living
Understand each point of view
Carry on for the future of me and you
I don’t know all the answers
Lord I wish I could
Lord I wish I would
Everyone pays for the bad and good

Road is long
Endless songs
Stories told
To young and old

Into the wind
Never end

Passes through
Every friend
And I don’t want to repeat
Cause life is short and talk is cheap
Even the king gets swept off his feet

Too many times
Highway calls our names
Rolling past the views we see but never claim
Into the night
Last call before the dawn
Long after the final encore is gone

Inside everyone
Stands a soul to careen

Given a chance to see what it all means
Out on our own
Never knowing what he knew
Enjoying the high of singing the blues

Road is long
Endless songs
Stories told
To young and old

Into the wind
Never end

Passes through
Every friend
And I don’t want to repeat
Cause life is short and talk is cheap
Even the king gets swept off his feet





Lost Love Island

26 04 2015

Catch the breeze off a tropical wave
Where every dog will have their day
Don’t worry, be happy now
What goes around will always come round
Kick your shoes off, put your sandals on
Goodbye heartache here comes the sun
Let the sand filter through one’s hands
Life is good on lost love island

(Chorus)
No love lost on lost love island
Where fears disappear
No love lost on lost love island
Won’t you join me here

Two wrongs don’t make it right
It’s always darkest before daylight
What you see is not what you get
Lessons learned you never forget
There’s a fork in every road
Karma’s a bitch I’ve been told
To pass the time till your ship comes in
I welcome you to lost love island

No love lost on lost love island
Where fears disappear
No love lost on lost love island
Won’t you join me here

The future here presents no past
And the good guys never place last
No bangin’ your head against a wall
It’s better to love and not love at all
If not for hope the heart would break
We always learn from our mistakes
The best mirror is an old dear friend
Life is good on lost love island

(Chorus)
No love lost on lost love island
Where fears disappear
No love lost on lost love island
Won’t you join me here

Every cloud has a silver lining
Nothing ventured, nothing gained unwilling
The pain of the prudent never shows
Postpone today’s anger until tomorrow
Sometimes regret things then move on
Play the part and you shall become
All things must pass to the end
Life is good on lost love island

(Chorus)
No love lost on lost love island
Where fears disappear
No love lost on lost love island
Won’t you join me here
No love lost on lost love island
Where fears disappear
No love lost on lost love island
And we’ll toast a cold beer





Everything’s Alright

20 04 2015

Where have I been
What have I done
I don’t care what they say
Look how far we’ve come
I braced for the rain
After the thunder crack
You can’t stay where you
There’s no turning back

(Chorus)
It made us stronger
When you thought it could not
There’s nowhere to go but down
And we both can’t stop
I still know every line
We hide in plain sight
I was doing without you wrong
With you everything’s alright

Somebody told me
Down every road
It’s not what you do
In this world of our own
No rest from the wicked
For who turn a blind eye
Where we will go from here
Up to you and I

(Chorus)
It made us stronger
When you thought it could not
There’s nowhere to go but down
And we both can’t stop
I still know every line
We hide in plain sight
I was doing without you wrong
With you everything’s alright

( Instrumental )

Across my mind
The past becomes clear
It’s not what you got
Inside your heart to hear
I’m saying goodbye
No rest for the like
There’s nobody else to blame
We both paid the price

(Chorus)
It made us stronger
When you thought it could not
There’s nowhere to go but down
And we both can’t stop
I still know every line
We hide in plain sight
I was doing without you wrong
With you everything’s alright
I was doing without you wrong
With you everything’s alright

(Fade Out)





Run out of Tears

5 03 2015

And now you say every little thing
I only hope It fills my memories
Don’t want to break in your hurricane
Ask no questions and I’ll do the same

Are you waiting, is there someone there
It tore me down thinking you still cared
Given you more, only wish that you could
No need to feel, dreaming that you would

Scars in numbers
Faded wonders
You never once asked why
Weary tired
Sheltered desires
I don’t even want to try
Run out of tears to cry

Goodbye bright eyes, where the smiles have been
Hiding my heart inside confined walls again
Leaving too soon, there is no better time
Whatever you want, I’m sorry it won’t be mine

Scars in numbers
Faded wonders
You never once asked why
Weary tired
Sheltered desires
I don’t even want to try
Run out of tears to cry





The Final Frontier

27 02 2015

Dim the lights
Look to the skies
Raise a glass
For this is why
Legends pass
The good must fall
Test of time
To one and all

Living life
A cross to bear
Satisfaction
Is what we dare
Memories
They come and go
Forged without
Within our souls

Everyday
A lesson learned
Stolen dreams
We all still yearn
Harken back
Where one has gone
Fallen stars
Fade yet still live on

Parted hand
The sign of peace
Voyage now
In space you reach
Boldly go
As we wait here
Till we meet
In the final frontier





Listens to the Night

25 02 2015

A friend once told me
When one watches and listens to the night
There’s more connection
In how you live than what part you get right

For quite a few years
It’s not hard to be struck by the ease
In want of something
Riding out on hope of varying degrees

Through the days I was suspect
The long goodbye a matter of time
Don’t wanna bring it with you
Nobody’s fault but yours and mine

There’s a chill in the air
For reasons not entirely unknown
It makes sense it you want it
If I remain still, if I am alone

With less future in the window
And the past caught in the mirror
The hourglass is quickly rising
Filled full of sand trickled near

On the basis we are entitled
To chart and set the record straight
Reflect not so much on what we all were
But what we have become of late

If there’s only one small comfort
Immunized from our immortal sins
You never see it coming
But look around, it certainly did

There’s more connection
In how you live than what part you get right
A friend once told me
When one watches and listens to the night
