who am I?

Star Fire Shower

sometimes I look but I never see
sometimes I wonder who’s inside of me?
why is it that I feel this way?
why should I stay, stay another day?

who, who, who
who am I? who am I?

I hear the beating thunder of my blood
will I explode in fireworks shower or be a dud?
do I burn inside because I am someone?
or is the brightness all outside from the sun?

who, who, who
who am I? who am I?

sometimes, I wonder what’s gotten into me?
why this obsession with a question of destiny?
why can’t I live a simple life and be a happy man?
why do I worry whether or not there is a plan?

who, who, who
who am I? who am I?

time has forgotten me

Slow Time in Wrist Watch on Dry Leaf

time passes so slowly
I’m waiting for to go
when I’ll return to here
that I do not know

I seem to wait for forever
time, time has forgotten
time has forgotten me

waiting for a woman
waiting for a while
waiting for my time to come
time to walk that last mile

I seem to wait for forever
time, time has forgotten
time has forgotten me

my singing girl

Artist Woman Singing Concert in Jazz Club

listen to my singing girl
as she sings a song for me
and as she sings a song
she drives away all my misery

sing, sing, sing, my singing girl
sing, sing, sing, my singing girl

and along the way
I hear her softly say
that she loves me
and now I’m so happy, that I could

sing sing, sing with my singing girl
sing sing, sing with my singing girl

sing, sing, sing
sing, sing, sing our song of love

I need you

The love of my life

The love of my life (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

I think of you all the time
you mean so much to me
and I can’t get you off my mind
oh, how close to you, I want to be

like the Earth around the Sun
my world revolves around you
now, I’m a unstable spinning top
out of control and lost without you

I need you, I want you, I do
I need you, I want you, I love you, I do

all my hope for the future rests
in the blessing of your tender, sweet love
so, come down off that marble pedestal
that I put you up on, way up above

I’m so lost and I can’t believe
that the meaning of my life is now gone
I’m alone and hopeless without you
how can I possibly go on?

I need you, I want you, I do
I need you, I want you, I love you, I do

down we go

Long Road in Montana

Long Road in Montana (Photo credit: Stuck in Customs)

moving to the beat of the drums that call us all
down the road before the shining sun begins to fall

fueled by the eternal fire burning in my soul
I push the button and turn on our cruise control

down, down, down we go
how far it goes, no one knows

always in motion, gotta push until we drop
certain there will always be a better rest stop

barely time to forgive all the debts that are owed
before racing on down to the end of the road

down, down, down we go
how far it goes, no one knows

I’m a fool

The fool and Death

The fool and Death (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

what can I say to you
my love
when I know that
I’m nothing much to speak of?

for you, my love, I’m a fool

I know, and I know
that you don’t know
all that I never have
the nerve to seriously show

for you, my love, I’m a fool

sometimes time
seems to move so slow
so now it’s time
to just laugh and let it go

for you, my love, I’m a fool

thoughts of you
come over me
a love so true
how can it be?

waiting, waiting, waiting

I’m waiting, my love
waiting for you
if you don’t come
what will I do?

waiting, waiting, waiting

always glad

glad

glad (Photo credit: Aunt Owwee)

I think about the girls
I’ve known
all the ones I’ve wanted
for my own

always glad that I’ve dared
always glad that I’ve dared to love

I remember the short time
we shared
never wishing my heart
was spared

always glad that I’ve dared
always glad that I’ve dared to love

sad melody

A Silhouette of Sadness

A Silhouette of Sadness (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

if only for today
if only she, she would stay
and become a part
of my beating heart
then we’d never be apart
forever a work of art

love is a unfulfilled need
I’m cut but I never bleed
I don’t touch so I never feel
not knowing what is real
trapped in mixed emotions
just going through the motions

it’s a sad melody
a sad melody in me

her smile and those lovely blue eyes
communicate no lies
except those little whites
all hidden in plain sight
spinning a witching spell on me
until, the truth I can no longer see

a lost soul and cold heart
have left me in the dark
many a time, many a time
we all learn a sad rhyme
but we go on, we go on
as each day brings a new dawn

it’s a sad melody
a sad melody in me

Lori, Lori Lorelei
beckoning me
Lori, Lori Lorelei
calling me

her song is a song of love
her tale a tale of woe
but I can’t stop loving her
despite the truth that I know

Lori, Lori Lorelei
Lori let me be
Lori, Lori Lorelei
set me free

song of man

sad songs

sad songs (Photo credit: pequeña esquimal)

nothing is forever
nothing lasts that long
but for worse or for better
we try to carry on
we carry on until we’re gone
cause that’s the song of man

my love for you is special
it’s easy for you to see
but it can’t overcome the sadness
that the world has come to be
and we try to carry on
carry on until we’re gone
because that’s the song of man
the song of sadness
we understand

our hearts beat out the rhythm
of our music and our lives in blood
our soul plays the melody
singing hopes whistling wishes
a quiet sound against the noise
our minds make up the lyrics
to say what we want to say
but when we go to sing the words
they never come out that way
and in the background the noise
destroys what little there was
that was good
in the song of man

each man has his own music
each his own way
each has a little part
of the masterpiece to play
the only problem
is that only the conductor
knows that it’s all the same
all the same song
the song of man

and the whole is far greater
than the sum total of all the parts
not better or worse
not good or bad
but something much more
that’s the song of man
a song of such sadness
more than any one man can stand

let the music begin…

Please be true

English: me and my friend

English: me and my friend (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

if I sing my song of love, my love
and ask you to be true
I know my voice would crack, my love
and that just wouldn’t do

oh no, but I love you
oh no, but I do
oh no, but I want you
so please be true

if I croon a comic tale of woe, my love
and tell you about our fate
I know you wouldn’t believe it, my love
when I ask you for a date

and yes, I love you
you must know that I do
and how very much I want you
so please be true

instead of singing a song of love, my love
I’ll tell you what I’ll do
I’ll reach out
put your hand in mine
and tell you that I love you

because I love you
yes, yes, I do
and I want you
so please be true

because I love you
yes, yes, I do
and I want you
to be you

yes, I love you
yes, I love you
yes, I love you
only you, only you, only you

walking down the street
everyone I meet
can’t hold a candle to you

you’re the only one that I care about

my love, only you
oh my love, I love you

yes, I love you
yes, I love you
yes, I love you
only you, only you, only you

you are my life
I want you for my wife
I want to always be with you

oh my love, only you
oh my love, I love you

yes, I love you
only you, only you, only you

I saw my baby, tonite

woman with binoculars

I think I saw my baby, tonite
I don’t know why but she makes me feel alright
somthin’ about that look in her eye

but, I don’t quite think that things will work out
she don’t even know what I’m all about
maybe she’d notice if I stand up and shout

yes, I found my baby tonight
I know, I found my baby tonight

as I walk away I think I’m gonna cry
cuz that girl I saw is with another guy
but then I smile as I sigh

yes, I saw my baby tonight

ooh, I love that girl
