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

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

Pam

Thin, dark pickguard on acoustic guitar

Image via Wikipedia

Pam I love you
more than any girl
I’ve ever met before
this I know for sure
because now I’m alone
when I’m without you
I’m alone again, alone again

I just
can’t stand
to be
without you
my love
Pam, Pam

the sun was shining overhead
the day I met you
Pam, I love you

Pam you mean more to me
than Life itself
and now that your gone
I’m all by myself
without you
I can’t live, can’t live

my life has no meaning
when I’m without you
I can’t forget you

Pam I want you
more than anything I’ve ever wanted
and I want to tell you
that I’ll always be here waiting for you
always waiting, always hoping

I just
can’t stand
to be
without you
my love
Pam, Pam

the sun will shine once again
when you return to me
how happy we will be
Pam just you and me
Pam just you and me

I just
can’t stand
to be
without you
my love
Pam, Pam

Pam, Oh Pam

I Remember

A walk on the beach

Image by TimOve via Flickr

on the day I met you
my love I came alive
I thought of how I could get to you
and make you be my bride

cuz I love youI really do
cuz I love you, I really do

on our first date together
my love I felt for you
we held hands
walked in the sands
and talked of what we would do

cuz I love youI really do
cuz I love you, I really do

and now we’ve been married for years
my love has faded away
I don’t know where it has gone
but I guess I’ll always stay
anyway

I remember I loved you
I really do
I remember I loved you
I really do

I remember
I remember I loved you

I Just Want to Tell You

Banjo Ukeleles

Image by Accumulata via Flickr

I just wanna tell ya I’m thinkin’ of ya
I just wanna tell ya that I care
I guess I’m too deep in love with ya
and it’s gettin’ me nowhere

and then you say goodbye
and I just wanna cry
and then you say you’re gonna go
what I’ll do I don’t know

cuz I just wanna tell ya that I luv ya
I just wanna be with you
I guess I’m hip deep in love with ya
and I just don’t know what to do

and then you say don’t cry
I was tellin’ you a lie
you’re gonna stay with me
oh, how happy I can be

Real-Life Situation

Français : Une maison jouet en plastique. Engl...

Image via Wikipedia

let’s always be kids
let’s always take life as a game
growing up and growing old
can drive us all insane

let’s stay young forever
look at only the good in life
we’ll live in our own play world
apart from all the pain and strife

we’ll always have toys
because we live by our imagination
and we’ll always be happy
without worrying ’bout the real-life situation

let’s always speak the truth
without the need for grown up lies
we’ll always stay innocent
in a world where no one dies

let’s always be kids
let’s stay the way we are
let’s hope the world was a better place
and wish upon a fallen star

Acting

English: Undergraduate acting students perform...

English: Undergraduate acting students perform in a main stage production of Dancing at Lughnasa (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

I don’t know how to be me
I can only act like me

I’m not real, no I’m not
but I act like I am
no one knows me, no they don’t
they only see what I let them see

I play a thousand parts each and every day
each person that I meet is the start of a new play
and everything I say comes not from me
but from who I appear to be

every day that I’m alive
in a different role I strive
to act like I would be
if I were that person
who you call me

can’t you see me?

I don’t know how to be me, don’t know who I am
I can only act like me and hope you understand
I’m acting like I am

I’m acting like I am but I’m not

Say Something

Unrequited love...

Image by horrigans via Flickr

I wanna say something to you
I gotta say something to you
I want to say something
but I never do

oh but surelyoh but truly
don’t you know that I want you?
don’t you know that I care?
and I’d love to say something to you
if only I weren’t so scared

the way you look drives me wild
although I may seem mild
because I’m just to afraid to move

oh but surelyoh but truly
don’t you know that I want you?
don’t you know that I care?
and I want to say something to you
if only I dared

everything that that you do
makes me feel so blue
cuz I know I’ll never get over you
and every move that you make
makes me shiver and quake
but I just don’t know
what I can do
I’m so in love with you

if you don’t know that I want you
if you don’t know that I care
I don’t know how to say that something
to let you know
that I’ll always be there

Live Fire

English: Supernova, animated gif

English: Supernova, animated gif (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

gentle star overhead
burn bright, burn right
but how can you supernova all your life
without losing your light?

always on the edge
at the end of a rope
always running full out
livin’ a life with no hope

a stars life is short enough already
without trying to light up the dark
but the way you’re goin’
you won’t even be left with a spark
be left with a spark

always on the edge
at the end of a rope
always running full out
livin’ a life with no hope

oh gentle star in my head
I feel the fire going out
dying in an empty breeze
full of hot air

live fire
live fire

leaving behind
only doubt and despair
only doubt and despair
only doubt, only doubt, only doubt

live fire
live fire

Day Dreaming

Iridescent clouds

Image via Wikipedia

my mind is far away
floating on a darkened cloud
thinking always of her
and alone in a curious crowd

I half wonder what I’m doing
not knowing where I am
and not caring when I will find my way back
assuming, that I even can

I look around carefully
noting everything that I can’t see
while all that I’m aware of
is the inner me

drifting from here to there
on a road to eternity
and daydreaming of a better life
than I know I will ever see

uncertain if I want to return
thinking I might stay
floating overhead on a cloud
my mind is far away

Melancholy MInd

Melancholia

Image by Philippe Moreau Chevrolet via Flickr

another day in anyplace
the same old things go down
I think I’ve been this way before
down in lonely town and melancholy mind

there’s nothing new under the sun
it’s all been said and done before
this hum drum life I’m livin’
just ain’t worth it anymore
bored in melancholy mind

I met a new person today
but all the faces seem the same
and before I had even turned around
I’d forgotten her name
who’s to blame? in melancholy mind

I did this job yesterday and I’ll do it again tomorrow
but I won’t be any more happy
for the time that I can’t borrow
that’s the sorrow in melancholy mind
