So stop making a life of strife
its so hard to love you
we're not of any value to you
do you even know I'm alive
We were gonna be a team
Now I can see a life without you / what was I afraid of, the sky's clear and blue!
Finally, I can see a life without you. What was I afraid of, today my sky has turned blue!
So I'm pullin up my bootstraps and filling in the gaps
Denial!s a good thing, got me over the hump, now I'm left faltering, down in the dumps
I haven't been around, looks like Hookists are away. Everyone's doing something for Labor Day!
This fight is long and hard
We who have fought this fight, are standing tall, to ease the night
We who have fought this fight, are standing tall, fending off this blight
I expected you to be the best, instead you lag behind all the rest
Nothing left to cry about, I finally know that you're a lout!
Mama warned me against guys like you
Don't want regrets, don't want to be bitter
The cloudless skies herald our goodbyes
I'm movin right along, singing a new song
Stargaze till sunrise, usher in the new day
My dreams waft away as I awake
I stare back, just stare and stare
knew I'd never read your missive, Why give you a chance to be derisive?
Can't trust myself, so I returned to sender Oh the state I'm in...I'm ready for a bender!
I kept your letter on the mantel Can't trust myself; who then, pray tell?
Why am I spooked by this letter, why can't I throw it away Am I afraid his written word, alone, can make me sway
Waiting for that new wind to clear my foggy brain/ Alas, my only vision remains too dark to ascertain
Waiting for that new wind to clear my foggy brain/ Alas, my only vision remains too dark to ascertain
I stopped to listen, woe is me/ My life is definitely not poetry!
An upbeat sentiment, a hopeful song/ I truly hope that it's not wrong
The journey's almost over/the tale is almost told At last we think we "got it"/could it be that we're too old?
Did we really make it, God only knows Let's see what happens, which way the wind blows
When will I know that you finally get it?
I don't want to explain, I want you to know!
Can it really be that you're not hearing me
If we're together, no need to seek more
We need to know that we are a team
As a new wind blows
A clean sweep is what I think we need/ Get rid of the cobwebs, no longer hackneyed
I ride that wind freely in the room/ Until I notice, I'm riding my broom!
I feel so safe, but doubts rise anew/ I worry and wonder, what should I do?
Some are satisfied, understand a slight nod/ What am I missing, I feel like a clod!
It's enough that you get it/just that thought lifts my spirit.
What is it you're thinking, I wonder aloud And make your eyes darken like a thunder cloud
I saw you walking alone last night/I let you be, did I get it right?
Hear not only the words/hear intent, hear what I meant
Does He recognize this world He made. Is the pen still mightier than the blade?
Don't say it's for me, the Lord protests. Love one another He counsels the blest.
She landed softly, not one bounce No failure she, I proudly announce!
So, though she couldn't soar aloft She knew she'd glide to landing soft
Stiffened those feathered wings could fly/ She knew on them she could rely
So as she leapt off that old cliff Her wings with captured air, were stiff
She climbed that barren hawthorne tree/ And stood tiptoe, less steadily
She climbed that barren hawthorne tree/ Tiptoe she stood, less steadily
She climbed that barren hawthorne tree Until she stood less steadily
Our girl has died, fallen on her head I wish we'd stopped her, now she's dead
Try and try again, we've been taught / With just one try, alas, she was caught
What about her do we admire? That she reached her hearts desire
Lord, does she know the risk she takes, Does she know how high the stakes
Oh, please Lord let her think this thru, Let her know if she can rely on you.
Did she catch that lofty breath / will the result be life or death
She smiled gleefully as she flew, she knew she could do it, she knew!
Separate Ways
I glad the tears are over, I can think of you with smiles / Life was good but now it's time, to love across the miles
I thought I couldn't be consoled, I was so all alone / I had a case of the poor me's, till life threw me a bone
That old life is over, a new life will soon begin / but it can't start till I can say, I'm moving on again
Remember the fable about the turtle and the hare?? Well, even the hare was faster than these boys!
Somehow I think it was hard to get them to do their homework....oy
Now, this is slooooow!
To live alone together is no ones chosen path / to live alone by ones self saves us from much wrath
To hit refresh, to start anew / you don't think that's something we can do?
I cant forget how sweet you were, how lovingly you smiled,
Cause I'm a wanderer, it's change that keeps me in thrall
But, please believe me, I still love you best of all.
Now I beg a second chance, can I somehow lift this pall?
And when my music is held in acclaim, homeward I'll go to bask in the fame
A busker they call me, I set out for fame / The street will applaud me, give me a name
I sit on a crate, guitar in hand / wondering when Lady Luck will land.
A halo it's not / or all would be moot. But he's definitely not all covered in soot!
My friend was irreverent / annoyingly so. Why, now he's gone, do I see a saintly glow
The world grows smaller w each loss of love and friend I dream of a new world, just around the bend.
I roamed the world over / and liked what I found New faces and folks / new music, new sound
I did repent, redemption's near / the angels sing, I have no fear.
In this house of peace and love, will she accept the heaven's dove
The wind died down, the storm at rest, thanks be to God, this house is blessed
Did I repent and enhance my fate, Will I be welcome at heaven's gate?
Sin no more, I make a vow, What went before means zero now
What did I know about the River Styx, Can't recall now, get me out of this fix!
ellfire and brimstone didn't scare us Life is over, who's got the onus?
Hah, what's God thinking, at the other gate. No quarter given for those who hate.
An eternity without hope/could I really be such a dope?
Abandon hope, life is done/ I bet I'd beat him, but he has won
Mortal sins assign our fate/abandon hope, enter Hells gate
Never again she says thru tears/but it's only till next time fancy rears
Ha, lessons learned, there is no way. Honest men can't be led astray.
Woe betide him on that path/he's open to Satan's wrath
Fooling with the devil kinda spooks me out/revenge is his strong suit, I have no doubt
How can I honor the deal that I made/he will collect soon, I am afraid.
Satan rules with an iron hand. So why do I still expect a heavenly band.
Is a soul too easy to barter To that demon who gives no quarter
Move quickly, do not tarry/who knows what strong winds may carry
Am I cool enough to write a line for this guitar that strums so fine?
Time is precious, life is so short. Why not seize the day, let's teleport
Recalling better days...he steps back from the ledge Before that big black hole, life held only privilege
I walked down the street with a spring in my step. I think it's just caffeine giving me pep.
The weather today made us smile thru the pain...shedding our memories of 13 inches of rain. To help us forget, we try the boys of summer. But those Yankees today, oh boy, what a bummer!
Congratulations Jerry and Ray. Good job.
I'm waiting...so exciting!
Do I Want To Know?
Should I Rewind?
Time And Again
Deja Vu Unrest
Days of Yore
Silent Revelations
Faceless Phantom
Nameless urges
Do I want to relive that time...the scene forgotten as was the crime
Manny Roth opened the door, for Dylan, Hendrix and many more. Now let Hookist do the same, for artists, writers and we, playing the game!
If not a dream, from whence this jumble. This game is making me humble.
Ethereal dreams leave much to imagine. When interpreted, will I turn ashen?
And the words, what do they say. Let's try to have Some fun today.
The Dow is tanking while we sit. Are we at the edge of a fiery pit?
From city to city, pleasure abounds. It's yours if you want, listen for sounds.
Mercurial Italy, always on fire. Here I envision my hearts desire.
I did it, wadduya know! Here I am in sunny Palermo.
The sky is starlit, not a cloud to distort. I dream I'll awaken in a far away port.
And, oh what a night. Sounds of pianos waft over the waves. Will they lull me to sleep as I pray to be saved?
A fleeting image, I stop on a dime. Then smile thru the day, feeling sublime.
Did you see the hawk in Washington Square Park, Lord of all he'll survey. I can remember a time in days gone by when he searched for much different prey.
It's déjà vu all over again when I enter the apartment halls. The aromas foster a vision of crazy domestic brawls.
I glimpse the guy in the car speeding by in the train on the opposite track. All day long I live again in a time I wish I had back.
Long, Long Days
Major Evolution.
Soaring over steaming rooftops. Wishing for some Frapin V.SOPs
Free to soar above the rest. Wondering if I'll ever be best,
I'm not one who's very bold, my limit not the sky. I think I'll just lay on my bed and very quietly die!
