About Me

Sorry, not a band member and there is no Mid-Century Logic...I just thought it was a fine name for a band. I write children's stories and have dabbled at song writing. With my short attention span, writing lyrics line-by-line seems like a perfect fit. Looking forward to future projects! Need to ask me something or share some thoughts? I'm at mypacrat@yahoo.com.

"Notice this phrasing off what you wrote Joe....

I draw that bow
Try to make the center
Let it go
I feeling it fly
Still I know even if I'm certain I'm....
Never gonna change your mind




"Aim it for the center" would also be good...but we used "aim" I think in the first verse...I hate to double up on words! Plus "take it to the center" sings better...."

(more)
Lyric by mypacrat:

"I draw that bow/Try to make connections/ Let ideals fly/Try to hit the mark/ They bounce back off/ all of your objections/ No I’m…never gonna change your mind"

Beth Nielsen Chapman commented on mypacrat's lyric:

"interesting rhymes...second line doesn't fit the melody rhythm...really like "holding up your crown"...play around with maybe "keeping your crown"

What if the first like was:

"Well you can keep your crown
Stay in your position
Anchor down
and _ _ _ _ ("I" rhyme here!)

And then the second half off this we would want to justify coming up on the hook...

and start with how to play into the Rhyme...here are some endings to the line before the hook that can internal rhyme with "position":

....this is why....(I'm never gonna...)
...even if the _ _ shines...
...maybe you will listen fine...but I'm never gonna change your mind....

"

(more)
Lyric by mypacrat:

"Well, you have your ways/ Like some kind of assassin/ Sticks and stones/ Holding up your crown/ If you’d just left go/ You might like what happens/ If I’m…ever gonna change you mind"

Beth Nielsen Chapman commented on mypacrat's lyric:

"I really like the idea of trying to get the "I'm" as the rhyme...this line doesn't seem to fit the accents...but this is worth trying to figure out!"

(more)
Lyric by mypacrat:

"Well, when I think of us/ And all the time I wasted/ Knocking your head/ Deep into the night/ Guess there’s no chance/ Come hell or high water that I’m…/ Ever gonna change your mind"

Beth Nielsen Chapman commented on mypacrat's lyric:

"I might lean toward "that's a mountain that I'm not about to climb" cause it sings better on the melody and is more open...but good one!"

No comments

And I won’t be haunted by the time I wanted
And like lightning flashes, we turn time to ashes
Like a bird I’m flying, on your faith I’m riding
If I can just forgive me, I’ll find peace within me
With so much to cherish, I can’t let time perish

No comments

I may have no castle, but I’ve won this battle

No comments

Every heartbeat reminds me how I need you beside me/ If it was only a dream, I could wake up and scream But time gets the last laugh in the end

No comments

Every heartbeat reminds me of what’s left inside me/ And any pain I release while I’m searching for peace Like all us, just drifts away
...every heart beat unwinds me/ It's a message I've learned should be read and then burned. Let love be the lesson that stays
...to leave wishes behind me/ Look each day in the eye; every laugh, every cry And leave dreaming for those who won’t dance
…every heartbeat invites me/ To reach out every day before time slips away ‘cause tomorrow just might never come

No comments

Every heartbeat reminds me and I use it to guide me/ ‘cause there’s an angel out there with a lock of your hair and she’s waiting for you to come home
Every heartbeat reminds me, that the past cannot bind me/ I won’t cling to the chains of yesterday’s rains though tomorrow may hold the same cloud.
Every heartbeat reminds me, every sunrise defines me/ If I keep every day, time can’t take it away, no matter how hard it tries

No comments

And we'll fight off the cold of knowing

No comments

Time flies like pennies in a candy store, yeah....

No comments

We all race but get the same reward...

No comments

Oh, can we wind our clocks just a little more...

No comments

Floodlights fading from our dance floor

No comments

Time continues it's whispering roar...life is short
I'd give anything to change the truth
Lost in this rain I am learning...life is short

No comments

Thankful to learm before time shuts the door

No comments

Love is the pain that reminds us
(Our) tears will tell us what we already know

No comments

...and time can’t make me let go

No comments

Race from the shadows of yesterday’s grip

No comments

Leave all my pride in some lonely abyss

No comments

Know in my heart that each heartbeat's a gift

No comments

Life is too short to lose moments like this
Weave threads of gold from every wrong twist
Push back on time until time up and quits
Grab life by the horn and just ride ‘til it quits

No comments

Exhale all the fire (or anger), inhale happiness

No comments

The joys that were squandered, each time my mind wandered/ It’s the moments I missed while I lived to exist, that make me feel saddest somehow

No comments

Though I still hear the voices of a billion bad choices/ I can stand on this shore and shout thanks to the Lord I can still face each morning somehow

No comments

The empty I’m feeling, staring at this ceiling/ Tells me I’ve lost my aim at this carnival game, stuck on this merry-go-round

No comments

I look back and wonder, I look back and hunger/ I’m was starving and keening for life and its meaning. I guess I missed it somehow
The ending is clearer, with each look in the mirror/ Not sure where I will go, but one thing that I know; I’ve lived my life upside-down
The rumble of twilight, the silence of midnight/ I fought lying down with my face in the ground, no sword to give up to the plow
You can’t beg, steal, or borrow one single tomorrow/ And you’re tempting your fate if you’re starting too late. Time’s like a gun to your brow

No comments

Found moments to borrow to push back tomorrow/ Any plans that I made were like sweet lemonade, but my glass has gone empty somehow (corrected...)

No comments

Found moments to borrow to push back tomorrow/ Any the plans that I made were like sweet lemonade, but my glass has gone empty somehow

No comments

Don’t look forward too far to the hope in dim star It so easy to say, you should live every day, but I learned too slowly some how

No comments

There’s no free tomorrow and none you can borrow/ Leaving nothing to chance; I’m done waiting to dance before I take my final bow
The mountains get steeper, the water gets deeper/ I don’t know how to feel, I’m just riding this wheel, still keeping control somehow

No comments

But most castles crumble in silence or mumble/ If there’s nothing to bind, it’s just dust left behind/ and that's more than my life can allow
No matter how perfect or how deep the strife/ You’ve always gotta keep some heart in your life

No comments

We all start with little steps, oh, don’t we now/ But suddenly gray takes over somehow

No comments

Me and this clock have been racing side by side/ I’m running on fumes and he’s still in full stride

No comments

Like to think I’ve got life under tight control/ But dying’s always just a breath away
Not looking forward to the day this old marble lets me go/ And I’ve torn any tickets I’d need to get into the show

No comments

I’m not a fool, I’ve been around/ I know one minute you can be on top, the next you’re in the ground

No comments

I can’t tell if you’re breathing, I only know you’re too many miles away/ But no news is good news and for now I guess that’s how it’ll stay

No comments

A rabbit said “I’m gonna spend every day in the shade of these trees.”/ The hawk laughed and said “Son, life doesn’t give you any guarantees.”
The dance floor seems to be a little more empty these nights/ so many old friends off catching their last midnight flights

No comments

Another twenty one guns at a grave today/another warrior gone, another one on the way.

No comments

We used to gather on Sundays right around five/ pass potatoes, roast beef and save some room for pie.

No comments

High school feels like a year ago and tomorrow still seems like a dream/ and I can't fit in a five pound bag, the ten pounds of pain I've seen.

No comments

Time is tearless and it doesn't hold a grudge/you can waste every second and time will never judge.
Time is a game and the dice are loaded/ and the house always wins in the end.

No comments

I woke up this morning, my kids were grown and gone/ the sun keeps soaring and it's dragging me along.

No comments

It's not a long road for everyone, it's just a road/ more about about how walk it, that's what I'm told.

No comments

That sun is riding on a jet airliner/ With a ticket to tear up the sky

No comments

I’m breathing in deep these rain soaked days/ Hoarding every flying minute I can

No comments

Momma was gone in '81, Daddy lasted til '92/ They won a little but lost it all, nothing that they could do

No comments

So much to know, so little time/ Holding onto dreams can never be mine/

No comments

The more we wait/ the more we’re gonna shatter/ Faced with fate/ we have to rewind/ Let’s bend, not break/every little branch we climbed... Though I’m never gonna a change your mind
hidden out of sight… Sheltered by the dark/ Fright’ned of the light/ Tearing you apart / The notion that I might…

No comments

Lonely as a star/ Frightened of the night/ Something off the chart/ The notion that I might…

No comments

No eye to eye / no meeting in the middle / Can’t say goodbye / just gotta rewind / We can’t deny / we’re prob’ly gonna be just fine…but

No comments

We’re just two small stars /pasted on this planet / We won’t get far / unless we can align / The door’s ajar / but the writing is on the sign...
I can take the bitter with the sweet
Always gonna be a fool for you/ But something here is sadly going wrong/ If there’s something else that we can do/ I’d really like to know before I’m gone

No comments

Never planned for such a bumpy ride/ Kinda put the horse before the cart/ And it hurts to have to stand aside/ Watching as two lovers drift apart

No comments

Sharing silence on a lonesome train/ Whispering the words we’d like to shout/ Bought our ticket for this ride in vain/ Never made a plan to work it out
Looks like we could use a little rain/ See if we could mix with the oil/ Find a way to loosen up the chain/ Bring it to simmer from a boil

No comments

Oh, if I could count up all the lies/ I tell in the silence of the night/ It’s a game that comes as no surprise/ Prayin’ everything will be alright

No comments

We’re both walking down this dead end road/ Distant as our daylight turns to dusk/ And it hurts to reap what we’ve sown/ And seeing what was solid turn to rust
Another day, the same old grind/ Tired as the sun up in the sky/ Are we both afraid of what we’ll find/ If we never start seeing eye to eye
I believe in trust and time for taking chances/ Save that spark/that glimmer of light/ Can we save us/and what’s remaining of our romance/ Am I… …ever gonna change your mind

No comments

Well you say you care/but where is your conviction/ I search in vain /but I can never find/ Let me say a prayer/and make this prediction/ I’m…never gonna change your mind

No comments

I try to hold on tight/I just keep on repeating/ The clouds could lift/I could see you eye to eye/ But the truth sure hurts and I can’t keep on believing/ That I’m…ever gonna change your mind

No comments

Well, I try to make my point/ but the walls get higher/ That angle of sight/ is adjustin’ all time/ Sometime I’d like/ to hold your feet down to the fire/ Or I’m…never gonna change your mind

No comments

What’s is gonna take?/ Should the earth stop spinnin’?/ How long can I wait til until you see the light?/ Am I just a fool? Did I know from the beginning? That I’m … never gonna change your mind

No comments

Gonna try and find the key/Make your motor turn over/ Maybe change a gear and roll on down the line/ It’ll take a little luck/like a four leaf clover/ If I’m…ever gonna change your mind
Well, when I look back/I guess it’s not a good thing/ Bangin’ your brain/with everything in mine/ What if my thoughts/were bad from the beginning/ I'd know why, I’m never gonna change your mind

No comments

I draw that bow/Try to make connections/ Let ideals fly/Try to hit the mark/ They bounce back off/ all of your objections/ No I’m…never gonna change your mind
We play a little game/ Life is like the spinner/ Count each space/ To the corner of the board/ We’re both in jail/ And there won’t be a winner/ And I’m…never gonna change your mind

No comments

There’s common ground out there/We just gotta find it/ And even if we don’t/At least we know we tried/ It’s a vow we’ll make /And we gotta get behind it/ Cuz I’m…never gonna change you mind

No comments

Well, you have your ways/ Like some kind of assassin/ Sticks and stones/ Holding up your crown/ If you’d just left go/ You might like what happens/ If I’m…ever gonna change you mind
If there’s a trail to take/ I’d love to try and lead ya Facts are maps/ Can you see it that way? Truth be told/ I’m always gonna need ya Though I’m… never gonna change your mind
You always grit your teeth/ When our tongues get rollin’/ You don’t bend/ And you never will/ An eye to eye/ Is a dance we are declining/ Cuz I’m…never gonna change your mind

No comments

Well, when I think of us/ And all the time I wasted/ Knocking your head/ Deep into the night/ Guess there’s no chance/ Come hell or high water that I’m…/ Ever gonna change your mind
Everybody has a string/ Or a button to be pushin’/ You and I/ Push it everyday/ I might push/ ‘til we both of us are blinded/ But I’m…never gonna change your mind
I never wanna change your mind/ You keep me guessing like a game show fan/ I never know what I’m gonna find/ We’re flying and we’re never gonna land

No comments

No, I’m never gonna change your mind/ But I have to keep a keen eye on the prize/ Maybe there’s a middle we can find/ Or maybe letting go is just as wise

No comments

No, I’m never gonna change your mind/ A record spins with nothing much to say/ Another round before it’s closing time/ I can almost see the echoes fade away

No comments

No, I’m never gonna change your mind/ A window in the dark with curtains drawn/ I know that it’s bolted from behind/ With all the terrors that change can bring along

No comments

No, I’m never gonna change your mind/ Can’t push an rhino sitting on a swing/ If oil and water don’t combine/ I’ll need everything a little luck can bring.

No comments

I’m never gonna change your mind/ And this feeling that it’s time for moving on/ Sorry that I’m leaving you behind/ Gonna miss you like the devil when you’re gone

No comments

I’m never gonna change your mind/ (I guess it’s just a little game I play) On anything, anywhere or anytime And the gap is getting wider every day

No comments

I’m never gonna change your mind/ That your view from your tower’s well designed

No comments

I don't really wanna change your mind/ but there's something in the wind that's changing mine

No comments

I said I'm never gonna change your mind/And my mirror said it back to me in kind

No comments

I'm never gonna change your mind/it isn't proper putting lipstick on a swine.
I’m never gonna change your mind/ Guess your Kool-Aid must be sweeter than mine

No comments

I’m never gonna change your mind/ And right now I’m needing whiskey more than wine

No comments

No, I’m never gonna change your mind/But if you’d just turn into me that would be fine

No comments

I’m never gonna change your mind/ Pity, baby, gotta send you down the line

No comments

I’m never gonna change your mind/ Tell you what; take your shot at changing mine

No comments

I’m never gonna change your mind/ Guess we’ll be feuding now until the end of time

No comments

I wouldn’t wanna try’n change your mind/ Not for a million dollars or a dime

No comments

I’m never gonna change your mind/ That’s a mountain that this woman will not climb
I don’t wanna try and change your mind/ And flying in those clouds is flying blind

No comments

I’m never gonna change your mind/ Too a big task and I’ve got so little time

No comments

I’m never gonna change your mind/ About anything, anywhere or anytime
I don’t wanna try and change your mind/ But some ideas are really better left behind

No comments

I’m never gonna change your mind/ But maybe move your brain to take a peek behind

No comments

I don’t wanna try and change your mind/ A little give and take to start would do us fine

No comments

I don’t wanna try and change your mind With so many thoughts so clearly undefined

No comments

Like gasoline and a red hot match, girl

No comments

I’ll get along, I know/viva El Paso

No comments

A dunce cap for a fool/For losing you

No comments

Would these words make it clear, if you could hear...
Here's to love and what remains/ after the flames
But the hardest part, you know/was watching you go.

No comments

Tumbleweed, blowing through/ Girl, I loved you

No comments

Yeah, El Paso’s in my mind/ Not left behind

No comments

If your dreams were just like mine, you’re doing fine
The lesson the end/we’re better friends
But if you never try/ Can’t learn to fly
The photo fades away/ the laughter stays
Dusty deisel engine whine/her laugh still on my mind...
One locked moment, one tick in time/ Changes the world, it sure changed mine
Time and distance, are magic things/ Make you forget what heartache brings
Not much comes close to what we shared/ And that rip is pretty much repaired

No comments

I made some bricks, but put them down/ You can’t move on with walls around

No comments

I guess I’m richer than before/ And I don’t take pictures anymore

No comments

Yeah, found that picture, heard you talking:/ “Don’t change your walk, just where you’re walking”

No comments

I can smile like I couldn’t then/ Took a while to get around that bend
Made me crazy, for just a while/ Souvenirs, El Paso, and that devil smile

No comments

I guess it’s true, that I’m over you/ But El Paso’s just a memory away

No comments

Here’s to the ashes and empty bottles / And goodbyes that taste so whiskey smooth

No comments

That ain’t a tear, dropped on your face/ It’s a stain I can finally wipe away
One step forward, two drinks down/ Time to move on, from that ghost town
Hello sunrise, whatcha’ thinkin’?/ Is it time to let the past just slip away
Watched the sunset, sippin’ whiskey/ Letting go of things that I can’t change
But like my hair line, our love kept receding
But I think I can finally stop repeating: Yeah, we gave it all we had

No comments

You can lie to yourself to stop the bleeding

No comments

One faded photo and I’m barely breathin’
And fairy tales aren't meant to believe in... but we gave it all we had
But you can pretend you've stopped believing

Or the hole in my heart that needs healing

No comments

Thought I really found a heart worth stealing
Can't stop the world and can't you can’t stop breathin’

No comments

Or empty nights staring at the ceiling

No comments

Least we left a lot of time for healin’

No comments

But the final lesson left us reelin’
I’d like to go back to that Texas town/ And see what’s left of what we burned down/ Where we lost what we thought we found/ Where there ain’t one kiss I’d wanna take back/

No comments

Thunder and lightning for a couple of weeks/ ‘Til cold rain poured on those El Paso streets/ Ah, but while we burned it was sweet/ And there ain’t one kiss …

No comments

We burned brighter than a night full of stars/ Made some bad choices but the choices were ours/ Now all we have left are the scars/ But there ain’t one kiss …
Thought we’d make it through the flame and smoke/ Thought we kept it simple, that just a joke/ It must’ve been love because my heart got broke But there ain’t one kiss...
Lust and liquor made a mighty fine fuel/ You burned me and baby, I burned you/ Not really sure who was fooling who/ But there ain’t one kiss...

No comments

We were more about feeling than how we felt/ Two lovers trying to loosen up the bible belt/ In the end we both folded on the hands we dealt/ But there ain’t one kiss I’d wanna take back
That was so many gray hairs ago/ But there’s one thing I think you already know/ Your love was something that I’ll never outgrow / And there ain’t one kiss I’d wanna take back

No comments

After all these years, I hope you’re doing alright/ Bet your still smoking hot like an August night/ I’ll always remember you just like that… And there ain’t one kiss I’d wanna take back

No comments

But like mid-day clouds in a Texas sky/ We melted away and I’m not sure why/ But just between you and I… There ain’t one kiss I’d wanna take back

No comments

We made sidewalks sizzle and that Texas sun sweat/I bet the whole city hasn't cooled off yet/A fool's paradise, baby, that's a fact/ But there ain't one kiss...
Sometime I’d like to touch your heart again/ Or maybe it’s better that we just stay friends/ All I know is in the end… There ain’t one kiss I’d wanna take back

No comments

Those kind of fireworks burn out quick/ Nothing left but the glow on a candle wick/ But when I tend to think of it… There ain’t one kiss I’d wanna take back

No comments

Flames took us higher than we could sustain/ But we came down harder than a Texas rain/ And though it makes me face the pain… There ain’t one kiss I’d wanna take back

No comments

We both got burned with no regret/ Moments of magic that I’ll never forget/ And I still know that… There ain’t one kiss I’d wanna take back

No comments

Can’t remember or I don’t want to try/ Only know that when we said good bye/ Still saw a spark of what we had... There ain’t one kiss I’d wanna take back
Burned brighter than that Texas sun/ Guess it wasn’t quite love, but it sure was fun/ Mmmm, that smile in your photograph… There ain’t one kiss I’d wanna take back

No comments

With just a gust of that Texas wind/ We might burst into flame again/ And while I’m waiting on that breeze… There ain’t one kiss I’d wanna take back
Didn’t take much wind to make our sparks ignite/ But we ran out of heat one Texas night, yeah/ But I’d do it all again and.. There ain’t one kiss I’d wanna take back

No comments

Ashes to ashes, dust to dust/ we thought we had it all, but it wasn't enough...but there...

No comments

Somewhere in the heat, we got a lesson learned/ We played with fire and we both got burned... But there...
Like gasoline and a red hot match, girl
But there ain’t one kiss I’d wanna take back, girl/ Love’s gotta big to be a big mistake, girl
But there ain’t one kiss I’d wanna take back, girl/ Lost more than my mind in that Cadillac, girl
But there ain’t one kiss I’d wanna take back, girl/ There was a time when I couldn’t say that girl

No comments

But there ain’t one kiss I’d wanna take back, girl/ You keep ‘em all, I’ll keep the photograph, girl

No comments

But there ain’t one kiss I’d wanna take back, girl/ That night’ll last longer than this photograph, girl
But there ain’t one kiss I’d wanna take back, girl/ Can't stop replaying that same old track, girl

No comments

But there ain’t one kiss I’d wanna take back, girl/ Left most of my heart in that world
But there ain’t one kiss I’d wanna take back, girl Even if time tells me it was all an act, girl

No comments

Not one second I’d wanna to forget, girl

No comments

But there ain’t one kiss I’d wanna take back, girl/ Or one second that seemed off track, girl

No comments

Ain’t much fair about a love affair/ When one’s in love, ‘n' the other don’t care, But there ain't…
Nothin’ else made too much sense/ Leavin’ was just self-defense but there ain’t…
I just wish you’d fill me in/ I’d come right back again/ ‘cuz there ain’t…
But all we had to make us complete/ Was between the sheets. Still there ain’t

No comments

I can smile like I couldn’t then/ Got around that bend, But there ain’t...
Sometimes things just fall apart/ Like a broken heart. But there ain’t
So good to see you, girl/ You were my world and there ain’t…
And I’d still jump in my car/ If I knew where you are cuz there ain’t...
You took that thing called trust/ blew it away like so much dust. Still...

No comments

Girl, I’m still feeling that crush/ Though you didn’t leave much, there ain’t...

No comments

A camera stopped that second in time/ You kept walking on down the line

No comments

And it goes somethin’ like this/ What you never had, you can’t miss, but there ain’t

No comments

All wrung out, left to dry/ Me and that endless Lone Star sky. Still there…

No comments

Ran into the fire, came out burned/ Lesson taught, lesson learned. Still there…

No comments

It all broke apart like Texas dirt/ No room for love, only room for hurt. Still there…

No comments

I turned left, you turned right/ Makin’ love wasn’t love that night. But there ain’t…

No comments

You were looking for love/ but I wasn’t the one. Still there ain’t...

No comments

Gotta pay for the checks you write/ Paying for mine most every night…Still there ain’t

No comments

Wasting away in my thin skin/ Nothin to say ‘bout the mind I’m in… Still there ain’t

No comments

Bitter pills they taste the worst/ Still it seems I’m somehow cursed...Cuz there ain’t...

No comments

Leaning back in this old chair/One thing I swear…There ain’t

No comments

Had a lot of time for thinkin’ and I think sometimes…There ain't

No comments

But love had a hefty price to pay/ Still only one thing I can say…There ain’t
Still wonder why you let me go/ there's only one thing that I know...There ain't...

No comments

I touched you under the table/ Can't say where it went after that
Sun was falling, heat was rising/ The AC didn’t stand a chance
You were my one shot at heaven/ Should have known there’d be no looking back
Found it with some yellowed postcards/ In a drawer where I try to hide my past
Could your hair still be that golden/ Your lips still wet as morning grass

No comments

Our love was wider than the Rio/ hotter than a Texas summer sun
Drove all night to get to Vegas/ Following our hearts without a map
And it doesn't break my heart no more/ it's just a piece of paper from the past
I knew how to make you smile/ never learned how to make it last

No comments

You always found the best in life/ Like every moment was the last
I want to jump right back in time/ But that moment has long passed
Like a song I haven’t heard in years/ On this broken phonograph

No comments

I thought I knew just what you wanted/ But the question wasn’t asked

No comments

Wonder if you have your copy/ Or if you’ve torn it in half
There were real flames inside that Ford/ And they left scars along the dash

No comments

My God, we looked like children/ Your skin still looked just like glass
We just had money for two beers/ And cut a hamburger in half
We must have hung around that restaurant/ For an hour and a half

Photos, Memories and Other Wasted Time
I’m learning love is more than all the lines I’ve tossed away
My history of ancient love and all its guarantees/ Catalogs of lust and pain and bitter memories
This is what a promise is/ and this is how it breaks
White band on my finger, where a band of gold once stayed

No comments

Friday night, boots are off/ TVs on, another evening lost

No comments

I could write everything I know about love/ on the back of a stamp, if I tried
Table for one, whisky for two
I'm trying to use this pencil, trying to make a list/ trying open the flood gates like a razor to my wrist

No comments

I have my chin in my hand, my heart on my sleeve/ Trying to accept what I cannot believe
I’ve never felt lost with a woman/ Never found myself searching my soul

No comments

You and I have made a life of constant ups and downs/ And this roller coaster ride is wearing thin

No comments

Just me and a pillow, together one more tonight/ And the remains of the slightest scent of you

No comments

Nothing like a pile of broken yesterdays/ To make you look at how your life has gone
Line ‘em up, Coach, I’ll knock ‘em down/ I just lost the prettiest lady in town

No comments

Sometimes I think dying is easier than change/ Nothing like day to day to save you from the strange

No comments

I don’t want to play games, that’s what she said/ Don’t need another man, for just a bounce in a bed

No comments

I can look out any window and see you standing there/ It seems memories and beer can’t fill the void

No comments

There’s a wedding photo in a broken frame/ Her ring on the counter and I’m to blame/ Looks like I failed another lesson on how to love...
You’re leaving on the next train or bus or I don’t care/ Walked out without a reason or a why / My sanity is coming back from hiding out somewhere / Thanks putting all the good back in “goodbye”
We weren’t together for a long time/ Just long enough to be sure I’d feel the pain/ Seems love songs are never really over/ You just add another line to the refrain

No comments

I guess it’s too late for another “I’m sorry”/ And no last kiss to rest my dreams upon/ We’re not that match made in heaven now are we/ Time to lick my wounds and try to move on/

No comments

Don’t talk to me, whiskey/you told me that she was the one/ I always listen to you, whenever you’re passing through/ But now look what you’ve done
Look at me with my thoughts hanging; empty as my heart is broke/ Love leads you though so may turns that learning from it seemed a joke
Another flood, another day, love happens that way/ And I’m learning by disaster as just fast as I can

No comments

She said as she was leaving I gave her no reason to stay/ Threw my bottle at the wall and watched world turn gray
Thought that I was done with yesterday/ Nothing left to face there anyway
We walked off our separate ways, doesn’t seem that long ago/ Anger passed, frustration passed, but what I’ve taken from it I don’t know

No comments

Hey, hourglass in the corner, the sun don’t shine on you/ Time to tip you over, let you teach me a thing or two

No comments

…ending with your kiss/ I find/ I am completely addicted (to)
…ending with your kiss/ And time, is all that’s left to share (with...)
...ending with your kiss/ daylight, and I know just what I will find there
ending with your kiss/ the sky/ Is the road to our horizon

No comments

ending with your kiss, but I? See endings as beginnings
..ending with your kiss and I/ Pray that my heart can take it
…ending with your kiss, so right/Needs, more important than wanting
…ending with your kiss, so right/I know the magic is in there

No comments

…ending with your kiss, so right/Just to start over again

...ending with your kiss, so right/Just to start over and over

Blink and the moment might be gone/might burn up with the dawn

No comments

Blink and the moment might be gone/might burn up the dawn
Cool, but night breeze fans the flame/and you’re touching me again

No comments

Now, in the darkness time is still/and I pray we always will/ Play this moment forever
Here, we rolled, a pair of dice/ double sixes came up twice/ and we weren’t even bettin’
You…and a t-shirt, glass of wine/like perfection, redefined/ And this bottle is not empty...
Fire…playing games with us tonight/We burn by candlelight/ Now we dance in the embers
Words, but I don’t have much to say/thoughts of you got in their way/ But I hope I can find them
Night, and we’re lost until we’re not/I’ve learned more than I’ve forgot/ And the road is wide open
Touched, but I still want so much more/ Let’s see what daylight has in store/ Cause I think that I can take it…
To be a king, just need one thing...
And here with you, if they only knew...
No peace of mind, if they can’t find...

No comments

I don’t mind, but they'll need to find..

No comments

You can look, but I can't share...
Trading kisses for words, keeping time on the run/ We’ll cling to the night while we curse at the sun.
Trading kisses for words, keeping time on the run/ We’ll cling to the night while we curse at the sun.

No comments

Let’s hold up forever between evening and dawn/ Kissing and lovin’, until the world is gone.

No comments

The silence is gold, there’s nothing left here to say/ I’m just moving my lips to thankfully pray… Just can’t believe/ God sent me

No comments

Don’t want to sleep, don’t want to wake up and find/ This dance was only taking place in my mind
Forget the morning, one more glass of wine/ These evening’s deserving of a little more time
That last sip of whiskey, didn’t go to my head/ I know I’m spinning from the dream in my bed

No comments

Another day dawning, and I’m willing to bet/ I’ll see more than diamonds in those small beads of sweat

No comments

The moon played a waltz, the stars did a dance/ We followed their lead and left nothing to chance.
Watched the sun rise while you slept by my side/ Lost in the silence as our two hearts collide
Watched the sunrise while you slept by my side/ There’s something growing here that can’t be denied

No comments

Can hardly define/ this moment in time/Words are just sounds when you are around…someone so rare.

No comments

I see in your face/daVinci’s embrace/I’m lost in the flare of the fire in there with...someone so rare

No comments

But you’re someone so real/That I can touch and can feel/And every moment we share, I’m completely aware, you're.../Someone so rare
That smile, that stare/Who else could compare?/Who is the one who’s got me walking on air/ ...Someone so rare
Someone so rare... Has a heart that beats the same as mine/ Makes me feel a way that I cannot define/ So glad the heavens could take the time to share/ Someone so rare.

No comments

Someone so rare... Could be in the spotlight, on a pedestal or throne/ Not sure I deserve the only love I've ever known.
It’s like whisky by the thimble, aged so perfect I can’t stop/ So rare a find, but I can’t unwind, with love served by the drop

No comments

Someone So Rare/ This answered prayer/ More treasure than angels could bring/ Someone So Rare/ A lifetime to share/ A song only heaven could sing

No comments

Candle flare/ Handle with care

No comments

What you bring/ Is everything
A last inhale/ Found the grail
Holdin' tight/This one's right
Morning wine/ A silver mine
Understand/ The gold in hand

No comments

Just the truth/ And my hen’s tooth

No comments

Something’s are lost/ Some are found

No comments

I found you/ Out of the blue
We know the obvious next move, let’s run from the path of the norm/ And enjoy the perfect silence we’ll make, lost in the eye of the storm
Don’t want to embarrass us with words when deeds will do/ I’ll stay silent; looking, dreaming, hoping all of this is true
So want to keep you to myself, but like a work of art/ It’s not fair to the world to keep us apart

No comments

You’ve got me shakin’ in my shoes like a little lost kid/ Not sure which way to turn, but I’ll be glad when I did

No comments

And I’m just a little bit frightened, hell, girl, I’m scared to death/ I’d love to tell you all about it, but you’ve taken away my breath

No comments

This is me and this is you, this everything is us/ Guess there’s no denying, there’s nothing left here to discuss
The sun has made you golden, silver dances in your hair/ I’ve only scratched the surface, but the tension is there

No comments

I’d be lying if I said I ever felt this way before/ You touch my heart in places that I might not endure (or...you're touching me in places that I might not endure)

No comments

Surrounded by each other, hands lost in the glare/ You make me feel far richer, than a rich billionaire
A state without borders or guidelines or rules/ Where time can stand still and I’ll always have you
Let this moment turn to treasure, something pure and true/ No need for any thinking, when I’m thinking of you

No comments

Cup your face in my hands; look deep in your eyes/ I’m the luckiest man beneath that sun in the sky
Whisky and anything, an August night/ You and Dr Hook, makin' everything right
There’s never been moonlit night that’s shined on someone like you/ A million nights waxing and waiting for a dream to come true

No comments

I’m afraid one day, I’ll look around and find/ You’ve gone away, leaving me behind

No comments

My blood is at a boil, that’s a pretty good sign/ Let’s you and I make some planets align
You can tell from the ashes, she’s lost at love before/ Been burned so many times, that there’s no fire no more.
She’s the line in my highway, the “S” in my curve/ She’s more of a woman than I really deserve
Never lost my heart before, always kept it in control/ Now all the chains are off so it can try to catch your soul
Let the past hide in the back seat, we’ll ride up here in front/No looking back to yesterday, tomorrow’s all we want

No comments

They thought every city was Paris, every drink: champagne/ Life kicked them around, but they didn’t complain/ So lost in each other, all that mattered was another sunrise.
Big wild world, you took some pity on me/ Brought a light to my life I never thought I’d see
The rattle of old shutters, the smell of rust/ Time to pick ourselves up and shake off all the dust

No comments

I don’t need part of you, I need all of you/ From the first day that we met, I knew that much was true
I’m not disturbed, but I really thought I’d lost my mind/Waiting for the one I never thought I’d find

No comments

The word on the street about you and I/ We’re wastin’ to much time watching time go by

No comments

I look into your eyes, like a million times before And still get lost like I did back in 1984
With chains from the past, she was tied to the ground Now all bonds are broken and nothing, nothing’s gonna slow her down.
No longer lost in fear and doubt, she stands ten feet tall and shouts: Tomorrow is the only dream I need!
She wants to be a landslide and tear skin up from the earth And dream at night of how she’ll fight and show them all she’s worth.
She’s done reflecting, finished with fools and moving on to where she makes the rules.
She's fought many battles and argued with fate, and won't accept crumbs when a feast awaits.
Limits are just images the world throws your way / She can’t believe in everything, but she believes in another day.
Yeah, it looks like she’ll never stop fighting / You don't drop the pen, if you're not finished writing.

No comments

Roadblocks behind her, if you look you will find her... dancing ten miles down the road.

No comments

She doesn't want to die, but she sees something in the cards. Doesn't want to cry, but some things are too hard.
Every sunrise, each tomorrow is a lifetime And she’s drinking every moment like it’s wine
In the darkest forest one can find/ a path to leave the past behind
A song from heaven, she’ll keep hummin’/ Nothin’ gonna slow this freight train comin’
Begs forgiveness for the times she’s sinned, breathes in the fate of the comin’ wind.
A giant oak from a seed of doubt, time to move before time runs out.
Takes each day and leads it home/ gives it life like a whispered poem
A faith that's deep and keeps getting stronger/ she'll punch and she'll kick 'til she can't any longer.
Listens for the music of a million guitars/ looks at the night, trying to see past the stars.
No red sports car , not a house of gold, just a summer night and a hand to hold.
Shadows feast on canyon walls, she swings away and sees them fall And feels the glow…
Inner voice that lifts her high/ a wink of hope as she walks by

No comments

No leather gloves, no shuffling feet/ just a beautiful smile for whoever she meets
Each day shorter than the last, who knew that time could fly so fast
Clings to stars, bathes in blue. Everyday day until each day is through.
A new side of life to learn, but candle that she has to burn.
So many wishes, so many dreams/ so much life that's left to share. She goes whistling past the graveyard and the ghosts that haunt her there.
She’s a diamond/she can make this right. Diamonds and wishes, shine brightest on the coldest nights

No comments

You put it on you/to see this thing through Make the dream big, what else can you do

No comments

Time to fly, midnight nears/ leave the past and dry those Cinderella tears.
And let her see how fear destroys/ Quiet love screams louder than all noise
All she needs is to feel and know / she’s never alone down this long and lonely road.
This old house, though not so warm Broken windows, missing shingles, it still stands up in the storm. Thieving winds pull dreams away. Oh, wishes can be heroes on these empty autumn days.
And she’ll wave that empty bottle at the devil when he comes, Throwing wishes out like lightning in the night. And he’ll run like hell for cover just like all the cowards do. She’ll believe in dreams again and she’ll be right.
And she’s clinging to this coil like she never has before. And she knows, oh, she knows... Every room she walks through just leads to one more. And she hopes, yes, she dreams... She believes there is an answer to a wish behind each door.
Someday the ache will fly away A wish will fall and the sun will rise on a better day Her heart still glows, because she knows The destination is the dream and the dream just is the walk along the way
Whiskey wishes, bourbon dreams. Every night ending in the bottom of a glass it seems Says her prayers, ‘n drifts way Runs like she did, when she was kid…back…back then, when she didn’t need dreams.
Clouds gather and try to hide the all hopes of her tomorrows. She won’t cry, they’ll go by. And wishes warm the night and help to wash away those sorrows. She smiles, for a while, even knowing time is only something everyone just borrows.
In the distance stands a chorus, healing as it sings. She listens and she wonders where these angels hide their wings.
Leaning on hope, hoping on dreams, a silent battle filled with silent screams.
Calling the bluff on non-believers, she’s makes her last stand. This is where the road divides and reaches for her hand.

No comments

Builds a shelter from the pain like only dreamers can do. Smiles knowing someday that her wish will come true
It seems winter came to early and settled in too deep. Spring is just a vision dancing dimly in her sleep.
She rides a rough ocean, tries to calm the swells by dropping silver dollars into wishing wells
She rides a rough ocean, tries to calm the swells by dropping silver dollars into wishing wells

No comments

Likes the look of her lipstick on long cigarettes, but sees most of her life as a list of regrets.

No comments

Rushes corner to corner, when life gets hard. Finds solace in the lyrics of a Hallmark card.
Still, sometimes, she would like to collide. If you miss all the bumps, you're just along for the ride.
If her wishes we're buttons, she would never get dressed. Sees every rainy morning as another day blessed.
Walks through her world at her ho-hum pace, no need to look past the end of her face.
That's the way it's always been. Little like a lie, little like a sin.
