About Me

Hi ya'll. Happy to be with Hookist. Seems as far back as I can remember I've been writing songs. First in my head before I could even write or read my name. I remember as an itty-bitty girl creating songs during the day and every night after sundown sitting on the porch singing the songs to God. I learned over time God is very patient and long suffering with His children because those songs were really lousy. LOL Sometimes it's like a band lives in my head, often waking me from my sleep demanding me to write. I usually do. Songwriting brings me much joy. It has been a great blessing in my life. I'm forever learning! Here's one of my songs: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UQhgNQSmDps

My Lyrics

Written for:

  • Darden Smith for SW:S
  • The Great Gary Lucas
Can we talk about the real? Put the BS all aside? Why are war heroes homeless and committing suicide?
I’ll never tell her, she’ll never see, the secret me, from Charlie Company/ Clingin’ to humanity, the man I used to be, but part of me died in Charlie Company

In the heat of battle, never lost my cool; this is what soldiers do/ Ask me if I killed anyone, I’ll lie to you; this is what soldiers do
I watched the life escape him, but I’m not feelin’ proud/ I did my solemn duty, but I’m not feelin’ proud
We fought side by side, for life I’ll remain/ Brothers in arms, two of the same
A balloon popped and I hit the ground, ready for more of the incoming sound/ To fix my mind they give bandaids, till I’m a zombie, alone in my cave

No comments

Each life I took, part of me was lost/ Replaced by quilt of a fatal cost/ Can’t process it under enemy fire/ When I get back, gonna need a tranquilizer

No comments

I’m your hired killer; part of the machine/ Man, of flesh and bone, turned into wolverines/

No comments

Unsure where I’m goin’ - just know where I’ve been / Only life dream I had was to survive, make it out alive

No comments

He was the picture on the wall, that mama made us say good morning and good night / Through my dreams he rode a huge silver horse, he was mama’s shining knight in armor

No comments

Everything changed; the life I once knew is gone / The world moved on without me & it all feels very wrong
Can anyone hear, my silent screaming? / Can they see, my invisible tears? / The fears, I bury, deep inside? / No! I’m lying and dying, alone

No comments

It was a moment in time; not a lifetime/ Rest, unwind, there’s still much to do/ If you should fall, brother, I’ll carry you/
Finish your mission! Find your grit / You might die, but don’t you quit
Darkness, depression, anger the guilt/ Son, I’ve swallowed all that bitter drink/ I know the crazy, gone insane full-tilt/ Wrestled shrinks, got thrown in the clink/

No comments

I know this isn’t what my ring promised you/ A hard life full of troubles and uphill battles/ I understand if you want to turn and run/ The risk I took when I picked up that gun/

No comments

We can only depend on each other/ Not to be left alone on enemy turf/ Swear if dead, dying or I can’t move/ That day we all vowed, I’ll carry you/

No comments

To a waiting hospital bed, they flew him home/ Not knowing how they’d make due/ She whispered in his soundless ears / My love, lifeblood, “I’ll carry you”
Who do you blame when bullets don’t have names? / How do I live with my ghosts of the slain? / Where is the place I can hide this all away? / Will I ever wake up and not be haunted today?
I’m pissin’ in a bottle; legs left in desert sand/ No one here to carry me three feet to the can/ Don’t feel like a soldier, don’t feel like a man/ All I can do is think, thank God I still have hands.
Jim Beam, Johnny Walker Red, Jose Cuervo/ Take me out of my head/ Don’t want to see the eyes of the dead/ Carry me, Carry me away…just one more day

No comments

They say “You’re home free! Lets go party”/ But there’s blood’s still on my hands/ Can’t erase where I have been/ Tryin’ to find who I am, in the motherland

No comments

Can’t seem to lay my guard down/ My mind’s a broken record/ Everyone’s an enemy In memories….in memories

No comments

They tell me there’s a silver lining/ I just haven’t found it yet/ I just haven’t found it yet/
You can take a man out of the uniform/ but you/ woo, hoo, hoo woo/ can’t take the uniform/// out of the ^man…/ woo, hoo, hoo woo/// out of the ^man…/ woo, hoo, hoo woo

No comments

You can take a man out of the uniform, but you can’t take the uniform out of the man
He never talks about the war, keeps it bottled up inside/ When I watch his nightmares, good God it makes me cry/
I never had a family. The orphanage was cold. Raised to be a loner; born without a hope/ I’ve found a band of Brothers, sisters too. You mean everything to me. I’ll carry you.

No comments

Do you ever feel like a tree stripped bare by the wind and your unsure you can ever start over again?
Where are you my brother? How did you disappear? / Those demons inside your head drive you to despair?/ You’re missing out of action, AWOL from mankind/ I’m searching everywhere and scared of what I’ll find/
My friends say, “You’ve changed”; always try to drag me out/ They can’t understand what I’m about, since life’s been rearranged

No comments

New battle on the homefront/ Insists you live in pain/ When nothing but opiates/ Keeps you this side of sane/ A hero now just a number/ Thrown about in the press/ The VA pledged to serve you/ Has made your life a mess/
I promise, everything is gonna be alright/ I know, it may not seem like that tonight/ I know the battle and pain you embrace/ Brother, I’ve fought that devil face to face
You’re paying for our freedom/ You always got our six/ Our guardian at the gate/ Whenever & Whatever it takes

No comments

I’ll carry you through your sorrows/ Through your tour of pain/ When your life is over/ I’ll carry you to the grave
I met him at a trash can; he was burning trash for heat/ Filthy clothes, grimy face, the old crippled man really stinks/ He’s feeding half the cheeseburger to a blind dog on his lap/ How does a national hero end up a common alley tramp?
Why can’t I chase these blues away? Home at last I should be glad / What is it that’s come over me? Seems I’m always feeling bad
Nice to meet you son, glad you stopped by / We're here for you day or night, been there and know the fight.
4th of July, independence day / Hear the bombs bursting in air? / Colors exploding everywhere / The day they carried my dad away
He patted his shirt pocket, the day he went away / our picture there inside it, saying "I'll carry you each step of the way"
When daddy came home he wasn't quite right / explosions woke him every night / we wrapped him in blankets, held him down / Part of daddy never left that war torn town
Twinkle of an eye, we’re like butterflies/ To seventh heaven we flyaway
Time, slips away, yesterdays, gone today / Time’s, always, getting in our way
Time slips away, yesterdays gone today / Say- Hey -Hey -Find the way- Say- Hey –Hey

No comments

Wrinkle, of time unfolds; our stories, will be told / We can face, and chase, shadows away

No comments

Forever’s in your eyes, in a land without time / Make me, shape me; I’ll be your clay
Time, we are tweaking / for freedom, worth seeking / emerald beads of light/ leads the way

No comments

I can see cosmic skies / as I gaze in your eyes / Time and space all slip away
Survivors, you and I / time to detoxify / Flames inside, guides, thru the maze
Troubled ghosts, all take flight, fleeing, from your light / A prism’s rhythm, leads us, on the pathway

No comments

More, not guaranteed, this moment, all we need / We can, stop the clocks, set time ablaze

No comments

An instant in time, the reason, and rhyme / The meaning we’re dreaming ablaze
Let’s slip under the covers / show me your colors Our remember forever holiday

No comments

In love’s rhapsody / we fall, on our knees / We’re captured and raptured away
Let’s shut the shutters, ignore all the thunder / Let's escape, on our lover’s play date

No comments

The past old dry bones, our tomorrows unknown / Right now, wow! That glow upon your face

No comments

Your the glowing highlight, of my, time worn life / My rescue, and refuge, love you babe
If your precious dreams, break all apart, at the seams / Count on me, we can flee, far away

No comments

Special moments, our reward / Time, is not our lord / Unique minutes, we sneak, cures the aches

No comments

These moments we seized / time’s escapees / We’re gifted and lifted, amazed!
Girl, your wings are showin’ / mmm, your halo's glowin’ / How you move / How you groove / You blow me away

No comments

Like dancing fireflies / stars sparkle in your eyes / Time chimes in / but I can’t stray
I used to wear pain’s badge / like it was all I had With you, it’s true, my blues… fade away
Twinkling stars up above / like glitter of love / No secrets between us get in our way

No comments

Dancing stars up above / the glitter of love / Sky’s a hippy trippy neon shade
Passion strikes the night beneath neon lights / Our dance of romance takes us away
In complete rhapsody / we’ll fall to our knees / When light / cracks night / stealing stars away
From a loving cup, we drink / our hearts, beating in sync / Nights delight, raptures us… away

No comments

Gentle winds toss your hair / hypnotized, I stare / I'm captured and raptured away
Too long shackled by time / all victims of its crime Damn the chains and reins we obeyed

No comments

Energized with light we take wing by night / Dark ghouls and ghastly rules we slay
We’re most alive these moments we thrive / Like desperados, shadows we slay
Let’s hold each other tight, through the night with all our might / Watch magic galactic stars at play
You toss back your hair; your tempting scent fills the air / I’m spellbound in your magnetic bouquet
What waits behind the veil? Hopefulness we inhale / More colors and wonders revealed

No comments

Stars swirl around us, in mysterious oneness / Uplifted eyes watch the sky waiting
Now fully awoken, with spirits unbroken / From restraints and mistakes we’re freed
Like purring kittens, we found what is missin’ / The divine designs of time

No comments

In golden moments of time we've stolen / A treasury of memories we guard

No comments

As the clock tic-tocks, mysteries unlocked / With vision we’ve risen with faith

No comments

By the bright light of day our past dreams give way / To visions once hidden from sight
When light bites the night, like a meteorite / In my arms far from harm you will be
Waiting up above are all who we love / While we juggle n struggle to finish the race

No comments

In the silence of night, we planned out our flight / New highs in your eyes I can soar

No comments

Come runaway with me, where we'll be free / We can unbind and unwind the clock
Seekin' a remedy - livin’ a melody / You’re my light through night, my escape
Too much time wasted, its sweetness never tasted / Sweet release we seek for our souls

No comments

In the end all that matters is love we've scattered / Beauty is our duty to spread with light
Time we are tweaking for freedom we're seeking / Great light from above guides our way

No comments

We mend life’s heartbreaks in moments that we take / The holes in our souls patched up
It’s times like these, we honestly do need / Life’s worried and hurried too much
Mysteriously clear, there is nothing to fear / Rainbows and halos, Angels among us
Universe on our side. Tears cried have been dried / We uncover and discover secrets

No comments

Our spirits take flight, pass the shadowy night / Going and growing, reaching new heights
Smoke rings in the breeze don’t get caught in the trees / Rainbows and men of snow all go away

No comments

The sun, starlight and moon still shine beyond the gloom / What’s inside overrides clouds
Freed from the darkest night - Bind yourself to the light / by stealing it's feelings so divine

No comments

Always searching for time, true meaning and rhyme / It came like a flash from a blast
We let go of the past, feeling freedom at last / Never gated or weighted by fright
Found all our missing pieces, now we’re masterpieces / We are glowing and flowing with light

No comments

Where time turns to dust, nothing ever rusts / Love remains to reign / suddenly we change

No comments

I have one parting wish, before breath leaves my lips / To rob time for a last kiss from you // For love is the magic, through everything tragic, that makes living worthwhile at all

No comments

I have one parting wish, before breath leaves my lips / To rob time for a last kiss from you
By star and moonlights gleam, like waking from a dream / Truth still blurry, are we here or there?

No comments

Our heartbeat rights the night / our spirits reunite / in a mystical kiss of delight

No comments

Evade commotion and explosions of emotion / do not stray from the pathway of bliss
We have been awoken / our words need not be spoken / Created of energy and light
Ol’man time can’t rule us, finding ways to break free / Don’t let the chaos crush us, step out defiantly
Oh how we treasure precious times together / What’s life about without reward and pleasure?
I’m not looking back, my gaze is firmly fixed / Forever’s ahead of me, just beyond the mist
Time an enemy, to which we’ve been enslaved / Unchained from bondage we finally escaped

No comments

Instants roll back, revealing our love story / Time now only vapor, we shout glory glory

No comments

The orbit’s quaking, passion’s our refuge / Love’s memories are riches worth rescue
Hungry hearts beat our drum, rockin’ the night as if we’re one / Intertwined in tempo n rhyme, our tune in time has just begun

No comments

Thick as thieves we manage to seize our quiet victories / Finally the champions over life’s struggles and miseries

No comments

Moody shadows of life chase us into the light / Only to withdraw forever hiding from our sight
In you I’m rescued / Take my pain away / You are my refuge, where I want to stay
Our days went by so fast, hardly can recall / Valued stolen moments, we remember all
In dreamy blessings enter spirit’s territory/ in all its starry glory there you’ll find your story
We rock the nights// Embrace the days// Our precious moments// we steal away// Stolen treasures// yours and mine/ Save us from the hands of time
Stolen moments hints at gladness/ As we rise above the madness/ Energy of love and light/ Lead us to endless delight/
Tears// misery// pain// left beneath us/ We rise up/ We Rise up/ Together we rise up/

No comments

Once lost in wisdom's outer circle/ An epiphany in stolen moment/ the key of freedom came in focus/
Like a solar burst I was enlightened / my spirit soared / emotions heightened // nothing remains but light and love / brothers and sisters joined above

No comments

UM HA LA LA / UM HA LA LA / ANGELS SINGING UM HA LA LA / THROUGH THE DARK WE ARE THE SPARK / UM HA LA LA / UM HA LA LA

No comments

Treading rainbows linking Earth and space as one Madly searching what’s inside us from our battle won Man of dirt / Angels of Light / gathered all together Eyes opened / hope insights / stolen moments last forever
Like the dawn, gloom fades to light, as we struggle in the fight. With stolen moments, all is right.
We hunt the earth, search the stars, the moon has no regard, Where will we find what's lost in time stolen moments of the heart
