About Me

I have never been in a band, but my two best friends and I used to perform songs at weddings and other get-togethers when I was a teenager. I have been writing song lyrics and poetry since I was a kid, but have never tried to get anything published or recorded. I relish the chance to show my skills here in this forum! Can\\\'t wait until the new colab begins! A little more about my background. I have seen firsthand the ravages of mental illness, and the effect it can have on a family. My mother, may she continue to rest in peace, suffered several nervous breakdowns when I was a kid, and tose episodes stay with me, and deeply impacted my life. I talk aboyt this, as well as other subjects, in a book I co-wrote with my cousin Miguel Bryant entitled: \\\"Brotha2Brotha: Da View from a \\\'Brotha\\\'s\\\' Perspective\\\" published by PublishAmerica in 2008 (now America Star Books.) https://books.google.com/books/about/Brotha2Brotha.html?id=uNGhOAAACAAJ&source=kp_cover&hl=en

One path, to take us 'round the world and back / one world, to learn to cherish all we lack
One globe, pinned against a velvet night / One world...within our sights
One world, one simple melody / One dance for all the world to see...
If I love you and you love me / One world is where we oughtta be...
Oh how I miss the gentle touch / we all deserve so very much
Oh how I'm longing for your hands / To touch my skin with no demands....
Our world, one world, in just a while / The colors blending through your smile
We need to sing together, it's so clear...
Tried to write my story and I swore / to dig into the deepest darkest core / my soul was yours to see, all the world with me stood up and cheered
Ain't nobody knockin' at my door /or walkin' with me in the mist at four / the distance far too far, but that's now who we are, though we are near...
Ain't nobody knockin' at my door /or walkin' with me in the mist at four / the distance far too far, but that's now who we are, though we are near...
We take just like thieves / Then we hope for reprieve / While we sigh and we cry in the night
And we're told to just wait but if we hesitate, moments stolen just roll into night
On the canvas we're told what's abstract and what's bold; but we'll paint our own picture tonight
Then just past the curve in the dark we observe things we would've and should've got right
Then just past the curve in the dark we observe things we would've and should've got right
When the chains of this life bound you down and their rust seeps into your and through your soft heart
The yesterdays pass just as fast as a kiss
The yesterdays pass just as fast as a kiss
But here I am in the very last room that I will ever see...thankful to God that you're not here with me
But here I am in the very last room that I will ever see...
That Denzel movie, ain't one scene that /I can recall without your face
After Your Laughter
Boomerang
Remember November
That Box in the Loft
Hard Hearts Soften
You left your favorite album here, I think you did on purpose; I put it on and heard a song that's bitter on the surface...
Knowing whispers, a touch on your spine/a wave electric like a telephone line.
Livin' on the aching promises/you shouted at the time we met/I never can remember what you said but the feelings I can't forget.
You hear it in every song...you see it in every book...
It's dyin' just a little when she says I'll see you soon; it's cryin' just a little when he's got to leave the room...
Battlin' doubts, and stormy seas...the monsters here are only make-believe
Shushing up the doubts and fears, and when she cries, it's only happy tears
He smiles and greets another day, with a wish in his heart and a song of grace
She smiles and greets another day, with a wish in her heart of a simpler fate
She looks so peaceful as she dreams, with a sunlit smile, skippin' 'cross a stream...
So I sit and watch her dream, with a sunlit face, she's runnin' 'cross a stream...
So I sit and watch her dream, hopes so big they're bursting at the seams
Remember this when you make a wish/The stars will blaze despite the haze/Like a little kiss, a single wish/Can spark the night, you'll live to fight my friend.
Her strength is this, she makes a wish/She wills it true like we all do...And remember this, her simple wish/Will heal her soul and make her whole.
An open door, your wish is here/and there's no need to hide your fears you see....trust in me.
If pain were gold she'd have a trove/If dreams were sheep she'd count in droves...
A butterfly, a candy kiss/To think that I could know such bliss as this....make a wish.
Floating by a silver stream/Looking up, she steals a dream...steals a dream.
Well, she maybe doesn't know what lies ahead, but she walks on air and makes a wish instead...
A word, a friend, she counts to ten...she closed her eyes and made a wish again.
She bathes in the warmth of a summer sun, with the scars of a champion
The southernmost wish on the northernmost star in an eastern most place to the westermost heart
If wishes were water I'd swim in the dreams / Of the children and bathe in the light of sunbeams
(2nd part of chorus) You can't cross over if you're burnin' the bridge/But it's all worth it if we learn to forgive
(2nd part of chorus) We all get weary while we're crossing the bridge/But it's all worth it if we learn to forgive
One light was burned out of that neon sign/It said "orgive" and then I knew the choice that was mine/I could easily take but then just what would I find/Forgiving is the lighted pathway to the divine.
Everybody’s tellin’ me get outta my head/But ain’t nobody tellin’ me how I can live/Ain’t nobody givin’ but takin’ instead/So now I gotta teach myself about how to forgive.
Chorus: It's too late to apologize... it's too laaate... (lol jk)
The haze up ahead and the fog left behind have a magical way of clearing my mind.
Though somewhere to me might be nowhere to you, that sunlight ablaze thru the clouds gets me through.
I'll tame that high road because I am the one to hear out my heart and follow that sun.
Destination: no anger, next stop is no blame/the tears and the folds on my map blur the names
Mountains whiz by scarred forever by streams, their beauty a signal for what this all means.
A satellite beams a ray to my heart/ thru the radio, croons..."time to make a new start"
The world says the journey begins with one step/But here in this moment it's hard to forget.
Anchored on promises, buoyed by prose/Direction and distance on me I suppose...
You live for a time in your soul draining room/while others go on and their lives are resumed
But nowhere is not where I'm hopin' to be. I long to be whole. I want to be free.
Forgive and forget...forget to forgive/I've only just mastered regret and relive.
...As we spin around, chasing sin around...we can nail our best intentions down.
(Chorus?) I can't show you how, I can't tell you how, I can only feel and wish you how...
Part A fits to X then part X fits to T...it all sounds so simple but X I don't see...
Intention and will buried twenty feet deep, refusing to come up for air nor to speak.
On Friday I might say a word out of turn. By Sunday the vibes of those words start to burn.
Spirit and mind in concert with the heart, may help a good person to make a new start
There's so much light arising in the world/ A light for every boy and girl
I want to journey inside the childlike innocent eyes...
Sailing upon hope/ taming a fearsome night
With every beat/a luminous sight
Into the light she flies/ leaving night on the wane/ Hope’s the message we send/ Peace and love will reign/ Or does it rain like sweetness and song/ Lumière du soleil sur ma langue
Into the light she flies/ leaving night on the wane/ Hope’s the message we send/ Peace and love will reign/ Or does it rain like sweetness and song/ Lumière du soleil sur ma langue
