About Me

I have been writing for a while now but just now beginning to try to pursue it and see where it might take me. I am looking to learn as much as I can and hopefully make some connections to co-write. Looking forward to writing with the folks here on Hookist.

One life is all we have to live / One world is all we have to give
One smile is all that it will take / One World is what that smile can make
One moon under which we all live / One World with all our love to give
As we race through space and this good earth twirls/Hold a hand, take a stand and know we are One World
One World, we will survive this challenge side by side/One World, we've got what it takes to stop this slide
There's so much that divides/ it is time to unite
Now I get to show / I won't let you go
It's time for me to / stop and carry you
When you wake up in the night in a cold sweat/thinking of things you're trying to forget
When those long nights from home start gathering in your head / and all you can think of is sleeping in your own bed
Once again the day begins, we go our separate ways; to only be lonely so we pray
Time stands still in my soul and makes it hard to hold back the tears and the fears in my heart
So where did it all go, I have nothing to show / All the years go so fast, I wish they would last a little longer somehow
Sometimes it's hard to tell but the days are passing fast / just take a look around / In just a second your future becomes your past/ time needs to slow down
All my yesterdays seem to have passed so fast / the future is not promised, today could be the last
Is the place to start, Move toward the light, You can't tear apart, (the notion that I might)
Draw a little picture
argue til the end of time
We go back a ways / never in agreement / We've had our debates / during that time / still here we are / being friendly and kind / and I'm never gonna change your mind
I could prove you wrong / show you all the answers / if you can't see the truth / you must be blind / that'll take to long /and I not wasting my time / cause I never gonna change your mind
We agree to disagree / you have your own thoughts / but then again I have mine / Compromise / is still something we can find / (if) I'm never gonna change your mind
When your heart is on a roll and your head is reeling
When your heart is on a roll and your head is reeling
But love needs more than lovin' to survive/that's what I learned from you when our love died
As a matter of fact we were a perfect match for that girl
As a matter of fact girl, we were a perfect match for that girl
It was what it was, it is what it is.... but
As the memories play I just wanna say.... there ain't one
I know where we been, wouldn't wanna go there again ... (but there ain't one kiss is wanna take back.
And now I'm sitting on my patio / thinking back on what we had
I am sitting on the patio /remembering what we had
If you weren't such an a$$#@!e / you'd still be my better half
We didn't know we were at a crossroads/between our future and our past
We sure let the good times roll / too bad they went so fast
We sure let the good times roll / too bad they didn't last
"Back to Me"
"Restart My Heart"
"Letting You Go"
"Lessons Learned"
"Life After You"
If I could talk to you right now this is what I would say / didn't like how things went down, but it's better this way
The greatest reward I ever earned was loving you / the hardest lesson I ever learned was losing you
I always wondered why our love didn't last / not that we didn't try, did we go to fast?
You'll always be my everything
and spend forever together... (with) someone so rare
My future never looked so bright
That always starts another fire
Makes me want to stay right here with
There are no words to describe
You're so unbelievable
Your taste stays on my lips for so long
Lost in this moment with you / All my fantasies come true
Lost in all these thoughts of you / Want to make your dreams come true
Lost, in all these thoughts of you / Found, all these feelings are true
Babe, I've got this feeling / We have raised the ceiling
Girl, my minds in overdrive / you, make my soul come alive
Girl we got this moving / in the right direction
(As) our bodies join together / I'm thinking of forever
As we bond together / I'm thinking of forever
As our bodies bond / our kisses hang on
Two bodies become one / we're having too much fun
Two bodies become one / (and) We've only just begun
Holding on / turning on
You can't buy / what's inside
Holding hands / making plans (with...)
Touching you /we're not through (you're...)
Caressing you / holding on to
Caressing you / holding on to
Here with you / I'm next to
By your side / just can't hide
Holding you / yes it's true (you're, someone so rare)
Every touch from you sets my soul on fire / just being close to you fuels my desire
All my senses are tingling, I can't resist / moving in closer for one more sweet kiss
Lying here together in the afterglow / your head on my chest tells me all I need to know
This night is moving a little to fast / wish we could do something to make it last
As I caress your body with my fingertips / anticipation builds while kissing your lips
You are one in a million, the last Unicorn / I've been searching for you since (the day) I was born
When I look into your yes the future is clear / it makes me realize (just) what I have here
The softness of your body lying next to mine / has me wishing I had nothing but time
My days are filled, dreaming of nights / taking you in my arms and holding on tight (to someone so rare)
taking you heart, to hold with mine / I'm always wondering, how did I find (someone so rare)
Our passion rules, it fills the air / I know it is selfish, but I just can't share (someone so rare)
A dream come true, nothing compares / to the passion you bring, I'm walking on air (with someone so rare)
Our passion fuels, how much we care / the world needs more like you, but it's hard to share (someone so rare)
(Someone so rare) Girl you are custom made / exactly (just) what I asked God for when I prayed
(Someone so rare), my heads in the clouds / my heart's in your hands, I'm dreaming out loud
(Someone so rare) like a dream come true / you're one of a kind, nothing compares to you
(Someone so rare) who is always there / through thick and thin, beginning to end
(Someone so rare) to help me fill my days / with such beauty and grace, I'm so amazed
You're so fine / one of a kind
wasn't looking / but I found
You and me / can't you see
Nothing to hide / 'cause by my side's
Finding you / Led me to
The clock on the wall is suspended in time / letting me know that you are one a kind
This night has turned into a dream come true / a one of a kind moment because of you
This night has turned into a dream come true / and it is because of the rareness of you
Passion flows like a river running wild and free / Rare as the love we are making, you and me
Passion flows between us through our tangled limbs/How do I deserve this rarest of gems
Our bodies melt together like gold in a flame/two becomes one now nothing's the same
We melt together like gold in a flame/two becomes one now nothing's the same
Our bodies melt together like gold in a flame/My feelings for you are not hard to explain
So this is what everyone's been talking about...
I just can't believe how strong this feeling is / I hold you in my arms and pull you closer for a kiss
