About Me

When I was around 7 yrs old, I was writing rhyme schemes and limericks. Later, after pop/ classical/ jazz piano training, all the while encouraged to play what I had learned by ear, I started writing actual songs. These I performed in various bands I was in, in the late 70s/ early 80s. I did not write for a long time afterwards. Then, after a year of touring as a side member of Crash Test Dummies in \'94 (backup vocals and keys), I started to take writing seriously. At first I wrote about 5 songs in one month. My specialty had become overtone singing (2 notes from one voice), and although this eventually was what I became mostly known for, I have a passion for lyric writing. I love the English language and word play. I proceeded to release 3 solo CDs: Kiva- The Ladder \'98, Kiva- Pulse \'05, Kiva Simova- The Quality of Light \'14. And I am thrilled that some of my first contributions to Hookist were chosen in the Bros. Landreth song. Also had lyrics chosen for both of Ellen Reid\'s songs, including most valuable Hookist for \'How Much More\'. And shout outs from Vernon Bush and Natalie Gelman. In Brad Roberts\' epic lyric poem \'Drone for the Holidays\', one of my couplets was chosen, plus had more shout outs here. I was chosen for the chorus lines and made MVH for the Hookist song (in spring 2016). In the Eric Stuart song, I was chosen for the chorus. In the Chris Barron (Spin Doctors) song, I was chosen for 2 couplets in the first verse. That one was a great challenge and learning experience, given his great feedback and suggestions for everyone. The title "Tin Man" was inspired by one of the lines I submitted. Then one submission was chosen in the Yashi Brown song. Worked on the Sisterhood's song. They chose 2 of my couplets for the complete first verse, 2 phrases for the chorus, as well as crediting me for the words "We Rise" as the title of the song. Then was chosen MVH. Thanks for the T-shirt! In Feb 2017, sang in the production 'Song for all Beings' in San Rafael, CA. After the first sold out show, I realized I was working with none other than Vernon Bush! Thought he looked familiar. In May 2018, my line was chosen for the opening of Jack Tempchin's song, and it was used again as the closing line (bookends!). I'm noticing a pattern I have with myself. I write an entire song using a certain angle, right from the start. Then, the artist will choose a lyric which throws a wrench into it. It's such an interesting and enjoyable challenge continuing on with the new angle. I love Hookist. It fulfills all my needs.

of what I'm bursting to share
I don't wanna lead/ but I don't wanna follow/ to walk alongside/ could be all in vain/ Life 'd be a bore/ If we were all the same/ SO I'm never gonna change your mind...
Well I'm never gonna change your mind/ like a feather on a statue in the rain
I'm never gonna change your mind/ Hope your parachute will open in time
Romance souvenirs still last/ while taking it slow so love can grow
Romance souvenirs still last/ while taking my time, you're on my mind

The crazy world out there/ seems so far away/ This feels more real than any words could say
Someone so rare

No comments

Something in the air/ I've never felt before/ No ordinary affair/ You're so much more/ someone so rare
Someone so rare/ got me shakin' my head/ you caught me unaware/ was it something I said
Someone so rare/ from out of the blue/ into my arms/ could this be true
Someone so rare

Still wonder how/ I got wrapped around...

No comments

One in seven billion, who 'da figured I'd be/ in the right place and time with you next to me
You're a natural wonder, a beauty so profound/ together we have chemistry for breaking new ground
I found something in the rough and even then I knew/ we might carve a life together just me and you

No comments

Someone So Rare
Your essence is essential, an obsession so rare...

No comments

She snaps me out of my usual trance/ we both put down our phones to dance
I'm not checkin' outta here any time soon, Got a room with view, that's you by the light of the moon
Now treasuring moments one by one/ It feels as though her journey's just begun
She reaches out/ pulls love back in/ Ain't no returning to where she's been
She's got the spirit of a warrior/ stronger with the love surrounding her

No comments

Each precious moment is a gift/ She counts her blessings in this journey
When every moment is a gift/ she counts her blessings in this journey

No comments

She knows each moment is a gift/ She counts her blessings in this journey

No comments

With every breath an ember glows/ warms her soul because she knows.....in a wish....
There's so much beauty in the world/ not to be missed/ just to see a little bit more/ is at the top of her list
A chance to share/ with those who lack/ with all her love she'll give them back
So much to say/ in a world gone wrong/ She longs for humanity to hear her song
She keeps the faith/ holds on tight/ though she trembles in the night
Make a wish/ keep it clear/miracles can appear/ angels on earth gather 'round/ give flight to dreams you hold dear
When there's a will, there's a way/ She's got so much to say/ Angels' wings, giving flight/ To visions within sight
She's got heroes to meet/who never admit defeat/ she'll voice her plea/be all she can be
Holding trust in a bigger plan/ she vows to do all she can/ with love to share/ We'll be there
Life isn't fair for anyone/ but especially those so very young/ who dream of wonders every night/ just thankful for the rising sun
You came into this world/ full of innocence and trust/ a destiny shone from your eyes/ sparkled like gold dust
To pull this off will be an inside job/ to get up and go without being a slob
But words can ring shallow, don't take much to drown/ in a flood of emotion when the chips are down
We're all flawed specimens, but her timing is bad/ so I'll try to focus on the good times we had

No comments

But my head is now clear as I switch on the light/ 'cause I no longer care who's wrong or right
Maybe the secret is travelling light/ Unload the burden, don't have to be right
I hope to someday break her spell/ from far far away I'll wish her well

No comments

If I can excuse her from far far away/ can I say what I mean and mean what I say
So many times I fell for the bait/ This might be a case of too little too late
(2nd part of chorus): Like a stab to the heart we forever relive, over and over till we learn to forgive
We wear a disguise, stuck on what we believe / it opens one's eyes learning how to forgive
I'm giving up armour, to speed up the deal/ I'm going for forgiveness, grabbing hold of the wheel
I'm forgiving my shadow with a bouquet of flowers/ Forget-me-nots were always a favourite of ours
I'm calling a truce in this one sided war/ forgiving my shadow lying there on the floor
If I walk in your shoes/ I've got one mile to go/ Planting seeds along the way/ for forgiveness to grow
Love is the scenic route/ long but it teaches well/ there's beauty in forgiveness/ the fastest way out of hell
Won't hire expensive middle men/ there's no help from outside/ Forgiving is free and if it's meant to be/ it's for me to decide

No comments

Don't need no safecracker/ for a vault full of pride/ Forgiveness cracks open the light hidden inside

No comments

I've been holding back words she doesn't need to hear/ for crying out loud at the rear view mirror

No comments

If I summon the words she doesn't need to hear, I'll cry them out loud to the rear view mirror

No comments

As I summon the words she doesn't need to hear/ I whisper to the reflection in the rear view mirror

No comments

I'm weary of feeling what time won't erase/ ready to collapse in the waiting arms of grace
Even a hurricane could work out okay/ A chip on my shoulder needs blowing away
I'll joyride the universe/ it's a very big place/ there's room for us all with dreams to chase
A joy ride's in order/ no fixed plan/ for this open to anything convertible man
One station stop before I go/ fuel up/ humble up/ get my ducks in a row
Hold your breath too long you'll be blue/ exhale all the hurt you've been through
From here in the darkness, could patience create/ a pearl of wisdom, worth the wait
By changing the focus to what we have learned, look forward to newly found peace we have earned
The best of intentions are silently kept in a struggle between moving on and regret
Private battles never reveal, a wound self-inflicted, refusing to heal
Sometimes the high road is awfully steep, the mind might be willing but the spirit is weak
Are back handed wishes for only the best of good luck 'cause you'll need it, a sincerity test
I've heard my share of fauxpologies, I search for clues of sincerity
Is it selfish seeking peace of mind, polishing the facets of a life I left behind

No comments

When a different kind of love starts taking over, forward never glancing past your shoulder
In the blur of all the sacrificial light years, we have travelled, we've been eaten alive

No comments

From the cores of our beings/ to the heart of the sun/ Building a life line/ Bringing hope for everyone
We rise/ Lighthouse beacons aiming high
Images flicker/ of angels by our side

No comments

Flying in formation/ Angels on our side
Like beams from a prism/ on a crystal clear night
Vision moves forward/ Dreams within sight
Shattering barriers/ Our colours take flight
Lifting the veil of darkness/ Shadows cast aside/ Revealing our radiance/ The quality of light

No comments

We hold the power/ here in the palm/ stretched up to the heavens/ grounded and strong
Paving the future/ Building bridges to the sun/ Joining hands together/ Bringing hope for everyone
We balance on moonbeams/ Hang on a star/ Warmed by the sun rays/ That bless from afar

No comments

Coming out from the dark/ Bursting with pride/ Fuel for the spark/ We all hold inside
Hearts breaking open, humanity's awoken. We rise

No comments

We rise

No comments

We rise
One little candle burning, on a window sill/ for a nation's hope returning, a promise to fulfill
Sacred feathers fan the embers/ Quiet dreams see light of day/ with the weight of burdens gone/ Voices soar in song/ Together we will build the way
Humanity is calling, hear the signal/ pulsing from far and wide/ Wave after wave of compassion/ We're riding side by side
Like the phoenix we rise/ from the ashes of pain/ with broken wings/ We'll be whole again/ The ground may crumble beneath our feet/ slowly we rise with each heartbeat
We Rise

No comments

On an island of warm vibrations/ It shook the foundations of our lives/ Left to fend for ourselves with little reprieve/ Shallow promises never arrived
Mother nature is not always kind/ she can rip your dreams apart/ robbing you blind
If your fire has dwindled, you’re defeated, forlorn, these glowing embers can keep you warm

No comments

Your pain is a sputtering neon sign/ I’m bathed in your reflection/ I won’t leave you behind

No comments

My ancient hidden mysteries are rising to the surface in spite of me

No comments

A fleeting moment of deja vu/ of an innocent child when cares were few
If I summon the strength lying deep in my core, having my back could tip the odds in this tug of war
Is that light through my pinhole just a mirage, or a miracle healing for self-sabotage?
Is there someone with will, stronger than mine, who can stoke up my fire, help me to shine

No comments

If my eyes are windows, I wait for the dawn, to peer through the bars on my soul, to be warm
I'm a shadow cast through a crack in a dream, my focus is lost on a cold moonbeam
With warm salty tears, sculpting all my fears for you to see
I'm not a ghost. Hold your candle closer to see.
Some warm regards would be, the utmost pleasantry
Flicker to a flame, yeah, I do have a name
From a vantage point hidden from everyone's view/ Based on old stories of the hell we've been through
Trance breaking, wheel steering/ Lucid living, giving myself cred
Rainbow illusions fade, my prism prison has misled
Found the rainbow's end/ pot of morphine on the bend
Neon billboard detour says go your way instead
I choke on exhaust, blinded and lost/ Heavens open right on cue
Crawling away, follow the slime/ the trail of my legacy, what's it worth to you
Strings hangin' in the sky, scene of the crime/ the puppet masters come in view
Where's an ark when you need it, mirage horizon/ Antedeluvian grandeur crashing through
An accidental off ramp/ nowhere cul de sac/ scratched up skipping repeat/ a swan song gone off track
An eroded old statue tryin' to get your attention/ Tattooed scars never earned your affection
Cherubs giggle, echoes bounce off the cliffs/ I grab at their mirth, hurtle through the abyss/ House of mirrors, tunnel of shame/ at rock bottom just myself to blame
Sob story, purgatory/ Can't even say goodbye
Can't wait till I am born/ there's a new shell to be worn
Can't wait till I am born/ Can't hurt to try again

No comments

The world is blurred from inside my bubble/ Stayin' in here keeps me out of trouble
A face in the crowd, nameless unknown/ Sentenced to life, a lonesome pronoun
We're all one, just don't ring true for me/ on the wrong side of the cage for eternity
We let our participles dangle/ sentenced to life doing the solitary tango
I teeter, you totter/ we're oil and water
We jump through flaming hoops, searching for purpose/ But life ain't long, it's a short circus
Limb by limb, what have I become/ a joker's whim, cartoon conundrum
I'm a figment of my own imagination, devoid of common sense/ GMO tainted, Frankenstein creation, artificial non-intelligence
I'll drive my point home in my DeLorean/ to be revered by some future historian
I had some clout before this bout with the plague/ All the dotted line big shots say they have to reneg
My relentless bullhorn blasts across the harbour/ Abandon ship I'm headed straight for your starboard
I am a cryptic, melodramatic mystic/ Just wind me up and watch me go ballistic
I can get away with a group of crows when I'm singin'/ I'll hover, fly for cover, you've no idea what I'm flingin'

No comments

I can get away with a group of crows when I'm singin'/ I'll hover, fly for cover, you've no idea what I'm flingin'
I got nothing to hold onto/ rocking to and fro/ Titanic panic would be apropos

No comments

I’m a lil' bit rusty in social etiquette/ If I have offended, I’m not in my stride yet

No comments

If I could moon walk outta here, to some place in space/ I'd observe the mess I made since I fell from grace
A stick man drawn on a fault line with a missing link/ by a teeter toddler teetering on the brink
Propped up on a fault line, a stick man drawn/ up the butt of a scarecrow, a wanna-be Don Juan
Tin pan tin man oil can nowhere to stand / I got nowhere to be, but here I am
I'm a backhand hologram, focus fractured like a slow-mo romeo bending over backward
The epitomy of tranquility you may have surmised/ I'm just a Tasmanian devil disguised
Spinning like a Sufi as if I'm advanced/ I'm just getting dizzy with ants in my pants
I may appear to be fast on my feet/ but missteps committed I'm doomed to repeat

No comments

Forced into boxes to fit into the scheme/ this jigsaw piece is ready to scream
I stare at my watch but I can't recall why/ it's too much o'clock so why even try?
I'd like to think that my mind's in control/ who's tugging the lines at this dark fishin' hole

No comments

Wandering in fog it's a sign of the times/ Is this dress rehearsal? I've forgotten my lines
Sometimes this life has no reason or rhyme/ each moment's intention can turn on a dime
Don’t turn back / Stay with me / Side by side / We’ll succeed

No comments

Two ancient trees rooted side by side/ Hurricane's coming/ hang on for the ride
That winning smile/ sees us through each day/ savouring the moments/ like children at play
We'll stand together/ with a bond so true/ Brother to brother/ I'll stand by you
Flying high is easy/ in a dream world you know how/ but your body is a prison/ It’s all that you have now
We’re gonna find a better way / The dawning of a new world starting today

No comments

We will know that we're on the right track / Lookin' out for each other with no turning back
We can find a better way / The dawning of a new world starting today

Innocent wonder must not fade/ gems in the rough are visionaries made
A bright horizon for humanity/ Finally waking up to this reality
A bright horizon for humanity/ We'll all wake up to this reality
A bright horizon for humanity/ We'll dream the new world into reality

There's gotta be a better way/ The dawning of a new world starting today
With history to guide us let's get it right, learn from the lessons with new insight
On a wing and a prayer I’ll be at your side/ through light years I’ll travel with angels to guide
n the darkness of space/ light can pour through a crack /We’ll come face to face and we’ll never turn back
Time and distance share a common thread /The unknown outcome a source of dread/ Dualities formalities a sense of lack/ Keeps pushing us on ‘cause we can’t turn back
You'd never know joy/ if you never knew pain/ Crossing the threshold/ We'll meet up again
He finally came to his senses and smiled/ And exclaimed "How I love a happy child/ There's no place like home in the old north pole/ Get your butts in gear elves, let's rock and roll"
He said "click your boots three times and you'll be/ Back in the land where you're real and free"/ And as he did, he plopped back on his lawn/ No drone, no bunny, the evidence gone
In the dead of the winter the kids were sad/ No jolly old fellow to help them feel glad/ Santa asked Bunny well how did he know/ Well it happened to him a while ago

No comments

But as they spun he regressed so far back/ Not even a twinkle in dad's eye in fact/ He witnessed a world where he'd never been born/ And everyone there seemed quite forlorn

No comments

An oxygen mask dropped in front of him/ Bunny shouted 'HOLD ON' as they curved the rim/ Of a giant black hole that sucked in their craft/ Now this should be interesting, Santa laughed
With speeds to reach galaxies far, far away That humbled the specs of his antique sleigh
With memory flashes of a life before dentures/ The tooth fairy showed up to share the adventures
I'm stuck in here till you let me out/ Just enter the password to what Christmas is about
And then a hologram came into sight/ with a scene from a long forgotten night
Now that his life has purpose anew/ His anti-depressants have gone down the loo
For an impotent man, this made him feel glad/ That Santa Claus junior would call him his dad

No comments

He'd teach his successor the tricks of the trade/ and chill while downloading his newest upgrade
The three wisest elves came out of their huts/ bearing mistletoe, mandarin oranges and nuts
At first a small whimper, then a giggle inside/ prompts Santa to hurriedly open it wide
Visions of angels came trickling in/ From the urinal state they'd originally been

No comments

A tag on the top brought a tear to his eye/ he read THANKS love Virginia, then he gazed to the sky
Was it his birthday? He didn't know/ Like this mystery gift he was found in the snow
It happened one summmer, he decided to take/ a tropical vacation for his sanity's sake

No comments

The naughty or nice thing wasn't enough/ so he had to get specific if they wanted that stuff
Tha final straw occurred one day/ When graffiti appeared upon his sleigh
He's a old school guy but there's no turning back/ These wish lists could bring on a heart attack
No therapist there when the ice cap thaws/ or a lawyer to check on his sanity clause
No therapist there when the ice cap thaws/ or to check if he still has his sanity clause
The older and wiser may cause his downfall/ What if he doesn't exist at all?
Besides the holy trinity/ He was a late bloomer in the family
With actors to hold kids on their knee/ While some of them scream and some of them pee
With a giant stash of cookies and beer/ More sightings than Elvis this time of year
With a ho ho here and a ho ho there/ There's a tale of which you're unaware
In a headstrong wind, I'm travellin'/ a new road by and by
Hope it's no mirage this time, not another lie

No comments

Embers start to trail
From over my shoulder, from a flame I snuffed out
Vision is hazy with tears welling up
We unite towards a common goal/ Bring on the brilliance in your soul
Been blocking the pain, been a struggle to live/ Dig deep down, there's so much to give/ That's when you know who you really are/ The world is waitin' for your shining star

No comments

Why am I still waiting for the punch line
Waking in a sweat embracing worlds we are between

No comments

Clouds over visions of what we might have been

No comments

This mirage might not be all that it would seem

No comments

Distance and time, share some common bond/ If I could make it easy, I'd wave some magic wand

No comments

Distance is always too far away from here/ When memories are all I have to hold dear
As the crow flies is the shortest route to take/ But so many twists and turns are all we seem to make

No comments

Hope knows no boundaries/ how far can it go

No comments

My hope has its boundaries, how far can it go
Let's break down the borders imagined or real

No comments

The light from a star/ Takes a long time to get here/ In the veil of the night/ While I stumble around

No comments

Will all I cherished be/ lost in this unopened letter

No comments

Offer no guarantees
Meant for eternity

No comments

Forget about guarantees

No comments

Cripple my sanity

No comments

That used to matter
Things that used to matter

No comments

Ricochet off these walls
But nothing changed for the better
From the wrong story line
Like daggers cutting through
Across from the great divide

No comments

They came up against a wall

No comments

Stripped of their dignity
They silently mock my honesty
Every last bit of my soul I revealed/ in this unopened letter forever concealed

No comments

My heart and my soul was revealed/ in this unopened letter forever concealed
Here I sit preparing for the worst/ Was it all a blessing or a curse
My hands are shaking/ as I ponder how you feel/ What awaits my heart/ when your truth has been revealed
We were on our best behavior when love was new/ But if you hold your breath too long you'll become blue
All that we want is to live peacefully

No comments

Heavenly bonding here on earth
Take that higher road to understanding/ Above all, get understanding/ Heavenly bonding here on earth
Understanding- the greatest gift of all/ The heart breaks to get bigger/ Stronger with each fall
Maybe we weren't meant to be/ But one thing is for sure/ I hope to see that you and me/ Can come to understanding

No comments

Maybe getting closer, to the answers I seek, We're all in this together, the strong and the weak
Ready for revelation, bust outta this cocoon/ See things in a brand new light, change is comin' soon
The morning sunlight glistens from a tiny drop of dew, Awakening the senses, and life begins anew
Thought I was alone, but all around I see, A multitude of souls that only want to be free
Is my dream just a distant mirage/ Wishful thinking, horizon of hope
Is my dream a simple mirage in the sky/ A horizon of hope ahead
High above in wind and rain/ her bravest act was not in vain/ When lightening strikes it takes you down/ and flying as the thunder sounds

No comments

And contemplating one more try/She cast her gaze to the darkened sky.
Eventually the bruises fade/ her dream would only be delayed
She landed softly in a pile, which brought on laughter and a smile
Remembering how when she was young, a great adventure had begun
She- is longing for/ a new comfort zone/ Somehow familiar/ somehow unknown
The wind then whispered 'not just yet'/ don't do something you'll regret
But the life blood in her veins/ was stronger than the leaf's remains
But a child's laughter pierced the air/ would she be too unfair
An autumn leaf clutched in her hand/ trusting mother nature's plan
That laws would soon give way to grace/ far away from this old place
Whispers slowly became a choir/ Harmonies on fire
With misty eyes and tender heart/ She tried to focus past the dark
Promises and vows denied/ her faith had all but died
With yet another storm to pass/ would she ever get the chance at last
So she threw caution to the wind/ At the end of a fragile limb
Alas, held back by gravity, so many laws to live by
Mother nature was on her side/ Joining her for the ride

No comments

And colors unknown to humanity/ would dance in all their capacity

No comments

Somehow she knew it was easily done /Simply imagine and reach for the sun

No comments

We were on our best behavior/ love was new/ But if you hold your breath too long you'll become blue

No comments

The head chases after the heart/ Looking for a partner in crime

No comments

How much more
Throwing my heart into all that I do/ Leave no stone unturned/ like starting anew
Down time's up time/ Darkness is light/ I've been set free of this eternal night

No comments

How much faith can you have without knowing/ How much love can you risk not showing/ How much life can you dare not living/ How much more.
If I could witness, each unfolding day/ Would it satisfy, would it convince me to stay
Past my shoulder, over my brow/ on gossamer wings they echo this vow
Where all is calm here inside/ Where I am free to imagine

No comments

Moonlight beckons, the layers unfold/ Shed light on the places I've already been
Gravity demons are clever/ They know you can't recall/ How you got so stuck down there/ Since your initial fall
My optimism runs on diesel/ Hard to get started in the cold/ A frozen block of icy resolve/ And everything's on hold
I now assess the damage/ walking on soles that have worn clean through/ if only to mark the passage/ of the time I spent with you

No comments

A faint star still flickers, though it's just an old flame

No comments

Knowing you like I think I do, you might just feel the same
I left you like the paint that peels from long neglected walls
