A Word From Above

Mailbox with brick background

Image via Wikipedia

oh I’ve left my inspiration
left her and went away
and now I don’t feel good at all
and I’m not half as tall
as I was
as I was

I’ve never waited so anxiously
for some word in a letter
never really cared before
never really cared before

and not just any words
for only her words
can make me feel better
can make me feel better

her words are my words
and my words are love
love is all there is
love is all there is
love is all there is

and still I’m waiting for
some message to come
to me
to me
to me

from the woman on the pedestal up above
waiting for my inspiration to come
waiting for my inspiration
to come
to come

Lori, My Love

Lori, my love
oh Lori, my love

you’re the only one for me
you touched me
like no one before or since
and you made me see
a new way

Lori, my love
oh Lori, my love

before I was alone
never lonely
but you’ve become a part
of me
and when we’re apart
I feel like my heart
is missing, is missing

oh Lori, my love
oh Lori, my love

you’ve made me realize
just how short life is
and how precious
you are to me
like no one before or since
I love you
and I want you with me
and I want you with me

oh Lori love
oh Lori, my love
Lori, Lori
oh Lori, Lori

Let’s Rock

English: Bill Haley and his Comets during a TV...

Image via Wikipedia

oh no, oh no, don’t let the sun go down
oh no, oh no, don’t end the day with a frown
don’t tell me no
I won’t let you go

after we’ve come this far
we’ve go to go all the way

let’s rock, rock the night away
let’s rock, rock our lives away

oh no we can’t stop now
oh no we’ll show the world how
it’s really done

oh yeah we’ll move together
oh yeah closer than ever

after we’ve come this far
we’ve got to go all the way

let’s rock, rock the night away
let’s rock, rock forever and a day

yeah yeah yeah yeah

yeah yeah let’s rock
baby let’s rock our lives away
livin’ the rock’n roll way

baby let’s rock
oh no

Shifting Gears

Gear shift stick of my Mazda Protege SE 1999.

Image via Wikipedia

whenever I get in a rut I shift gears
never knowing if I’m going to burn out or stop
until I do, but whatever I do
the change of pace makes me feel like new

it’s good for me to feel free
to move in mysterious ways
leaving the straight line
for those who think they know
where they’re going
even though, it’s just not so

because I really know where we’re going
nowhere
but between here and there
from now to the end of the road
I have a lot of things I want to do
places to go to

shifting gears

I Can’t Sleep Without You

it’s late at night
I’m writing this poem for you 
by a light
I’m so in love with you

I’m tired and I want to sleep
but I can’t sleep 
without you
because I love you

and I can’t sleep without you
no I can’t sleep without you
no I can’t sleep without you
without you
without you

you’re always there 
in my dreams
but I just can’t stand
to wake up without the real you
the fantasy
just will not do
without you

the dreams I dream of you
full of desire 
and lust for you
are beautiful
like beautiful you
like you

but the nightmares come
when I wake up
and I realize 
that it’s all not true

and I can’t sleep without you
no I can’t sleep without you
no I can’t sleep without you
without you
without you

and I can’t sleep without you
no I can’t sleep without you
no I can’t sleep without you
without you
without you

Don’t Get Hooked

English: Hooked sandbar shark (Carcharhinus pl...

Image via Wikipedia

baby don’t go get hooked on me
I can’t give no guarantee
my heart is always on the run
so stop it before it’s begun
because I’ve got to be free
baby don’t go get hooked on me

I’m your lover but I’m a mover
I move the earth both under you and under me
so baby don’t get hooked on me
you know one day that I’m gonna leave

bye bye baby
bye bye baby

I was never fishin’ for you
anyway when any who would do
boo hoo hoo hoo
boo hoo hoo hoo
do doop de do de do
do doop de do de do

The End Song

Angel

Image by Stephie189 via Flickr

solitary angel calls to me
solitary teardrop falls from He

the end, the end
the end draws near

the end, the end
of all that’s dear to me

The Silly Sunbeam Song

English: Rainbow

Image via Wikipedia

something in you
or something in me
it’s all I can do
for all I can see

say goodbye

we’re off on our way
to the future it seems
to the end of the rainbow
formed by sunbeams

in the sky

for good or bad
we go our way
like something sad
I feel today

in me

like it or not
it’s all that we’ve got
and all we can do
is give our best shot

for our happiness

we’re off on our way
to the future it seems
to the end of the rainbow
formed by sunbeams

in the sky

and now and then
it all works out
we seem to know
what it’s all about

to be

we’re off on our way
to the future it seems
to the end of the rainbow
formed by sunbeams

in the sky

In the Summertime

In the summertime..

Image by .Andi. via Flickr

she came to me in the summertime

and then I fell
into her spell
of love, her sweet love
in the summertime

she said to me that she loved me

and then I fell
into her spell
of love, her sweet love
in the summertime

she seemed to me to be everything

and then I fell
into her spell
of love, her sweet love
in the summertime

but then she went away
stole the light of day
from me, my lost love
in the summertime

she came to me in the summertime

In the Web Called Love

Spider at Web

Image via Wikipedia

she took me to ecstasy
in her web of love
I knew it was my destiny
in the web called love

but I tried, yes I tried
how I tried to break free

but I tried, yes I tried
how I tried to break free

she held me so tightly
in her web of love
I didn’t know how it might be
in the web called love

and I tried, yes I tried
how I tried to break free

and I tried, yes I tried
how I tried to break free

I never did find out
what love was all about
I never did get free
she crushed me

I never did find out
what love was all about
I never did get free
she crushed me

A Song That Fades Away

English: The white line fades The remains of t...

Image via Wikipedia

it’s lonely in my heart
and lonely in my mind
for I am a lonely man

it’s quiet in the earth
and quiet in the sky
for I have not said a word, I have not said a word

it’s dark in the daylight
and darker in the night
for this is an evil time

the future and the past
are fading from my sight
for I am a dying man, I am a dying man

the good that was done
and all that might have been
will fade and pass away

it’s lonely in my heart
and lonely in my mind
for I am a lonely man, I am a lonely man

The Westward Breeze

Midnight sun at Nordkapp, Norway.

Image via Wikipedia

she sails the midnight sun
with her hair flowing free
whispering to me
to come follow the westward breeze

oh my loveI love you
oh my loveI really do

she smiles 
and the sun lights up the sky
and I follow 
but I wonder why

oh my love, I love you
oh my love, I really do

something about her 
spells mystery
whispering to me
to come follow the westward breeze

oh my lucky starsI’ve been blown away
oh my lucky starsI have found the way

she sails the midnight sun
with her hair flowing free
waiting for me
to come follow the westward breeze

oh my lucky stars, I’ve been blown away
oh my lucky stars, I have found the way

In My Own Way

English: Forest Path Following a path through ...

Image via Wikipedia

something in the way
that she says I love you
tells me what I have to do

walking all alone
in the darkness of my mind
nothing seems to me to be kind

but I know that I love her
in my own way
even as I know I can’t stay

something in the way
that she touches my heart
tears me apart till I cry

walking all alone
in the darkness of my mind
nothing seems to me to be kind

but I know that I love her
in my own way
even as I know I can’t stay

My Iron Will

English: Iron eagle on a gatepost at the forme...

Image via Wikipedia

I’m bold, cold, growing old
left the fold and broke the mold
waiting to be bought or sold

fight slap kick kill
rock and roll my iron will
no beg, no borrow, I steal

love and leave
watching fools grieve
all is what I believe

I’m always right, so bright
never seen the light
never wish I may if I might

I’m today, I’m tomorrow
a reflection in her eternal sorrow
where I lead all will follow

looking for one I can trust
giving away my pizza crust
my iron will will never rust
