Lyrics from Lucy's CD's " In My Opinion " & " Keeping My Fingers Crossed "

In My Opinion

Heard your imagination ran away with you and your second opinion thinks sheís telling you the truth youíre like a horse out of the gate around you go on the chase sheís like a carrot in your face. You took that first step broke the ice and jumped right thru did your second opinion teach that trick to you cause that water will be cold but sheís got you in her mold youíre just a shape with a face that can be thrown away. youíre not making any sense leaving me like this sure weíve been revolving stumbling spinning falling falling but we could start again in my opinion. Iím going to walk by faith and not by what I see cause what looks like a hell hole is really heaven underneath weíre like diamonds in the rough a little luck a lot of love we could unearth a real beauty in you and me. 

Be Yourself

We met in a guitar shop I was buying strings and I stopped when I saw you you were looking at me too. you smiled and I turned red your face just simply said that I'd like to get to know you. out of the corner of my eye I saw you standing there half scared out of my mind do I dare. why do I criticize myself time after time would he like me just the way I am. found a poem to memorize I could quote line after line to impress him and make him think that it was mine. out of the corner of my eye I saw myself standing there half scared out of my mind.  do I dare be myself wouldn't he prefer someone else.  we met at a coffee shop somehow I thought I gotta tell him that poem. so I shared my feelings something happened really strange he started telling me the very same thing.  out of the corner of my eye I saw myself standing there half scared out of my mind.  just be be yourself don't you dare be someone else.

Seduction  ( BEWARE of SNAKES! )

TELL ME WHERE DID YOU COME FROM  I WAS HAPPY MINDING MY OWN BUSINESS.  THEN YOU WENT AND SANG THAT SONG  WAS YOUR GLANCE AT ME OR AM I DREAMIN. CAUSE IF THE TRUTH BE TOLD  WE MIGHT ALL BURN BURN IN HELL.  I WONíT LET ON THAT I KNOW IT VERY WELL. ALL THESE MIXED EMOTIONS SHOWS ME IíM SO HUMAN  BUT I DONíT HAVE TO CAVE IN  IF YOU SAID YOU WANTED TO BE MORE MORE THAN FRIENDS. IíM GONNA PUT MY HEART WHERE ITíS SAFE IN THE ARMS OF IN THE ARMS OF IíM GONNA PUT MY HEART WHERE ITíS SAFE  IN THE ARMS OF IN THE ARMS OF GRACE. TELL ME WHERE DID YOU COME FROM I WAS HAPPY MINDING MY OWN BUSINESS. 

Better To Give Than Take

YOU TOOK YOUR LIPS AND YOU PRESSED THEM CLOSE TO MINE. SO MANY YEARS HAVE PASSED SO MANY YEARS HAVE PASSED US BY NOW. IíM LOOKING ACROSS THIS GREAT LAKE THINKING I MADE A BIG MISTAKE AND I WANT TO DROWN. YOU TOOK MY HEART AND YOU SHOWED IT TO YOUR FRIENDS.  PROMISES YOU MADE PRETTY MUCH HAVE ALL BEEN BROKEN.  WHAT MAKES THE TIDE KEEP RUNNING TO THE SHORE THAT CRAZY MOON IN HEAVEN'S A PULLING.  WHAT KEEPS US TOGETHER ANYMORE  MUST BE THE MOONS CREATOR AND IíM FEELING LIKE IíM THROUGH DROWNING SOUNDS LIKE THE PERFECT THING TO DO. i FINALLY GRABBED MY HEART AND I RAN STRAIGHT FOR THE CROSS CAUSE YOU KNOW ABOUT LOVE AND YOU KNOW ABOUT DYING.

I Am Falling Too

SHOULD OF SEEN IT COMING YOU WERE ALWAYS THERE THERE FOR ME. LOVE JUST DEVELOPED LIKE SPRING LEAVES ON AN OAK TREE. THE RAIN FALLS DOWN IN BIG BUCKETS IT REMINDS ME OF HOW I HAVE FELT. THAT I AM FALLING TOO I AM FALLING TOO I AM FALLING TOO FOR. YOU SHOULD OF KNOWN BETTER WHEN YOU REACHED REACHED OUT YOUR HAND. OR WHEN THAT LITTLE WINK FROM YOUR EYE CAUGHT MINE TIME AND AGAIN. THE RAIN FALLS DOWN FALLING IíM FALLING. THE RAIN FALLS DOWN I WANT TO BE SOAKING WET. THE RAIN FALLS DOWN FALLING I'M FALLING FOR YOU TOO.

Waiting By The Phone  ( Remember doing this anyone? )

ITíS GOING TO BE SIX OíCLOCK IN TEN MINUTES I HAD TO HURRY HOME. I NEVER THOUGHT IíD FIND MYSELF IN THIS POSITION SITTING BY THE WAITING BY THE PHONE. ITíS GOING TO BE SIX OíCLOCK IN FIVE MINUTES THATíS WHEN YOU SAID YOUíD CALL. WHY DID I HAVE TO GO AND GIVE YOU MY PHONE NUMBER NOW IíM SITTING BY THE WAITING BY THE LOOKING AT THE WAITING BY THE PHONE.  WHY AM I PACING BACK AND FORTH. WHY AM I TALKING TO MYSELF. WHY AM I FIGHTING BACK THESE TEARS. WHY AM I BITING OFF MY NAILS. ITíS GOING TO BE NINE OíCLOCK IN TEN MINUTES DID WE REALLY TALK THAT LONG. TIME SURE DOES FLY TILL THEN IíLL BE COUNTING THE SECONDS AS IíM SITTING BY THE  WAITING BY THE LOOKING AT THE WAITING BY THE PHONE. ITíS GOING TO BE TWELVE OíCLOCK IN TEN MINUTES WHY CANíT I GO TO SLEEP. ONE LITTLE PHONE CALL AND IíM OFF TO THE OUTER LIMITS CAUSE IíM SITTING BY THE WAITING BY THE LOOKING AT THE WAITING BY THE PHONE. 

RED JAG

MORNING WAS DELIVERED FROM THE DARK WOMB OF NIGHT. THERE WAS SUNSHINE LIKE MELTING DAFFODILS COVERING EVERYTHING IN SIGHT. IíM GOING TO ROCK THIS BOAT YEAH MAKE SOME WAVES SEE IF I CAN PULL MYSELF UP ENOUGH TO SEIZE THE DAY.  I COULD CONFORM TO THIS POSITION IT FITS ME LIKE A GLOVE. BUT THEREíS THIS CALENDAR OF EVENTS FLASHING ON THE CEILING UP ABOVE. ALL FLESH IS GRASS LIFEíS NO SOONER SAID THAN DONE THERE GOES THAT ALARM AGAIN SOUNDING LIKE BIG BEN IN ENGLAND. I WAS GOING DOWN THE FREEWAY DOING NINETY MILES AN HOUR OH YOU SHOULD OF SEEN ME IN MY RED RED RED JAGUAR. TIME WAITS FOR NO ONE SOMEONE ONCE SAID. THEY MUST OF HAD TROUBLE LIKE ME GETTING OUT OF BED. I FEEL SO GUILTY THINK IíLL RELAPSE BLAME IT ON THE SNOOZE BUTTON AND JUST COLLAPSE. THEREíS NO TIME LIKE THE PRESENT. SO IN THE TWINKLING OF AN EYE I THINK IíLL JUST ROLL OVER AND GIVE FORTY WINKS ANOTHER TRY. WHATíS YOUR PROBLEM I HEARD A ROOSTER SCREAM BETTER WAKE UP NOW FROM THIS RECURRING SCENE.

Vermilion Sky

WE WATCH THE WAVES LICK THE SHORE WE WATCH THE SEA BIRDS SOAR. WE SMELL THE BREEZE I FELL YOU SQUEEZE MY HAND. WE LOOK FOR DESTINY AS FAR AS THIS WATER WILL LET US SEE. AND WEíRE READY TO FALL OFF THE EDGE OF THE WORLD. LETS LET GO OF THIS KITE ON A STRING AND GIVE IT A WHIRL. IT LOOKS LIKE A SHINNING PROMISE AS IT FLIES OFF INTO THIS VERMILION SKY. WE WATCH THE NIGHT START TO CLOSE US UP JUST LIKE AN ENVELOPE. QUICK LETS SEAL IT WITH A KISS WHO CARES IF WE ADDRESS IT. IT LOOKS LIKE SOMEONE POURED GASOLINE THEN LIT A MATCH TO MAKE THIS SUNSET SCENE. OOO BABY YOUíVE LIT THIS HEART OF MINE IíLL NEVER FORGET YOU OR THIS VERMILION SKY.  

Jonah's Sister

I HEARD WHAT YOU TOLD ME BUT I TURNED A DEAF EAR. THE WAY THAT YOU SEE LIFE FOR ME IS NOT VERY CLEAR. YOU HAVE GOOD INTENTIONS MINE ARE NOT. YOU SAY GO DO THIS AND I SAY SO WHAT. ALL YOUR DECISIONS ARE MADE WITH YOUR HEART. MINE ARE HIDDEN IN THE DEEPEST PART OF AN OCEAN FULL OF DARKNESS IN THE BELLY OF DECAY. THREE DAYS IT TAKES ME TO DROP MY PRIDE AND SAY. IíLL STOP RUNNING JUST GET ME TO THE SHORE. IíLL STOP RUNNING  HELP ME LORD. MY WILL IS SUCH A STUBBORN BEAST IíM SAFER ON MY KNEES. PLEASE FORGIVE ME. IíM JONAHíS SISTER RUNNING AWAY. IN THE OPPOSITE DIRECTION FROM THE PATH THAT IS STRAIGHT. IíM TIRED OF THIS GREAT FISH THATíS FOLLOWING ME. HEAR MY CRY LORD FROM THE DEPTHS OF LIFES SEA. YOU CAN RUN FOR SO LONG JUST WAIT AND SEE .YOUíLL WIND UP WHERE YOU SHOULDN'T BE. YOU MIGHT BECOME THE BAIT THE LONGER YOU WAIT. YEAH IíM JONAHS SISTER THATíS FOR SURE DONíT WANT TO SWIM WITH THAT FISH NO MORE. 

Cry- (Something's in our past just need to die)

HEADIN EAST WITH MY FACE RIGHT IN THE DAWN. AT LEAST NOW I CAN SEE WHERE IíVE COME FROM. BITTER MEMORIES LIKE THESE DREGS IN MY COFFEE CUP. WORTHLESS TOKENS THAT WILL NEVER PICK ME UP. TOO MANY TIMES IíVE DRIVEN DOWN THIS WINDING ROAD. IíM NOT A TRUCKER BUT IíVE CARRIED SOME HEAVY HEAVY LOADS. AND IF I GOT STOPPED IíD HAVE SOME FINES TO PAY. BUT OFFICER I WAS JUST MINDING MY OWN BUSINESS LIFE GOT IN THE WAY. THEREíS JOY WHEN YOUíRE BORN. TEARS WHEN YOU DIE. TURN ON THE WIPERS CAUSE IT LOOKS LIKE I MIGHT CRY. TOO MANY BREAKDOWNS AND FLAT TIRES IN MY CASE. NO HEAT IN WINTER NO COOL AIR ON MY HOT FACE. ITíS ALWAYS SOMETHING LOOK OUT FOR THAT ROAD KILL. CAUSE IF THE PAST DONíT GET YA THE SMELL SURE WILL. I KEEP DRIVIN DRIVIN DRIVIN. AND IN THE MIRROR I SEE. I KEEP ON MISSIN MISSIN MISSIN WHAT WAS RIGHT IN FRONT OF ME. IíM HEADING WEST NOW STILL ON THE RUN. SO FAR IíVE TRAVELED YET I KEEP RUNNING INTO THAT SUN. ITíLL BE HIDING SOON SO WHAT'S NEW. IT DOESN'T MATTER WHERE YOU GO THE PAST IS STILL WITH YOU.

Constantly Calling ( The never ending story)

I AM SO EMPTY  I AM SO NEEDY THIRSTY AND LONGING FOR MORE. WHERE ARE THE ANSWERS TO ALL MY QUESTIONS HERE ON LIFES ROCKY SHORE. NOTHING BEFORE ME NO LIGHT TO GUIDE ME WHAT LIES BEYOND THIS DARK DOOR. WHERE ARE THE ANSWERS TO ALL MY QUESTIONS HERE ON LIFES ROCKY SHORE. I AM CONSTANTLY CALLING YOUR NAME. IíM JUST A VESSEL TIRED AND BONE DRY DIP YOUR CUP AND ON ME POUR. WHERE ARE THE ANSWERS TO ALL MY QUESTIONS HERE ON LIFES ROCKY SHORE. GIVE ME A VISION THEN IíLL HAVE A REASON TO KNOW WHAT I AM HERE FOR. WHERE ARE THE ANSWERS TO ALL MY QUESTIONS HERE ON LIFES ROCKY SHORE. I AM CONSTANTLY WANTING YOUR WISDOM TO MAKE EVERYTHING PLAIN. AND UNTIL THIS ROUGH SEA IS SMOOTH AGAIN I WILL BE CONSTANTLY CONSTANTLY CONSTANTLY CALLING YOUR NAME. 

Going Through ( wrote this after a conversation with someone who "thought" I was a bit crazy to be doing what I was doing- which is following my heart. oh well)

YOUíVE GOT YOUR EYE-BROWS RAISED WAY UP HIGH. WHILE IíM OVER IN THE CORNER TRYING TO DECIDE. WHETHER TO JUMP RIGHT OUT AND FLY OR JUST STAY PUT. CAUSE WHAT IíM GOING THROUGH WHAT IíM GOING THROUGH HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH YOU. YOUR MICROSCOPE TRIES TO SEE. THE REASON IíM BEING ME. WHY DISSECT MY HEARTS INTENT WHEN YOU KNOW BETTER. WONíT YOU JUST LET ME GROW AT MY OWN RATE FAST OR SLOW. IíM STILL HERE EVEN IF YOU THINK IíVE GONE SOMEWHERE. YOU SAY SHE USE TO BE THIS WAY AND NOW SHEíS THAT. DIFFERENT SEASONS DIFFERENT PATHS. WE ALL MUST MAKE THE BED WE SLEEP IN.

Again ( No explanation necessary )

THOUGHT I COULD KEEP MY HEAD ABOVE WATER BUT I FEEL MYSELF SINKING DOWN. I THOUGHT I COULD COULD TREAD WATER BUT THEREíS AN UNDERTOW STRONGER THAN ANY IíVE KNOWN STRONGER. I SUCCUMB TO THE BLACKNESS. I SUCCUMB TO THE DRAWING POWER. IíM PULLED IN WITHOUT RESISTANCE. WHO WOULD OF KNOWN HOW FAR DOWN I COULD GO HOW FAR. OVERWHELMED I ADMIT DEFEAT. OVERWHELMED I AM BROUGHT TO MY KNEES. OVERWHELMED I THROW UP MY HANDS. OVERWHELMED I THROW IN THE TOWEL AGAIN. I THOUGHT I COULD KEEP MY SENSE OF DIRECTION BUT I HAVE BEEN BLOWN OFF COURSE. I THOUGHT I HAD MY HEART ON A TETHER BUT EVEN TETHER'S  BREAK UNDER THE HEAVY WEIGHT BREAK. I SUCCUMB TO THE PASSION AND POISON. I SUCCUMB TO THE LUST OF MY EYES. IíM PULLED IN WITHOUT RESISTANCE. WHO WOULD OF KNOWN HOW FAR DOWN I COULD GO HOW FAR. WHEN WILL I LEARN TO NOT PLAY WITH FIRE. AND NOT TO PLAY ON IN THE GAME OF DESIRE. I CALL OUT YOUR NAME REACH FOR YOUR HAND OVER AND OVER AND OVER AGAIN. 

Under The Stars             ( Last song on "In My Opinion" )

HERE WE ARE FLAT ON OUR BACKS LOOKING STRAIGHT UP AT STARS. ONE FLIES ACROSS AND THEN ITíS LOST WHO KNOWS TO WHERE IS THAT STAR DUST IN OUR EYES.  IíM AMAZED AS I GAZE THAT YOU KNOW EACH ONE BY NAME. I DRINK IT ALL IN AGAIN AND AGAIN THIS NIGHT UNDER THE STARS. THEY SHINE JUST LIKE JEWELS IN SWIMMING POOLS OF THE MOST HEAVENLY WATER. THEY FLOAT AND LOOK WET TRYING THEIR BEST TO OUTSHINE THE REST OF THE OTHERS.  DONíT CLOSE YOUR EYES YOU MIGHT MISS SOMETHING AND THEN YOUíLL THINK I WAS ONLY DREAMING. THIS MOMENT IS REAL BECAUSE I FEEL THAT DIPPER MAY SPILL AT ANY MOMENT.

 

No One Else                   First song on "Keeping My Fingers Crossed"

WHO WOULD HAVE THOUGHT WHO WOULD HAVE KNOWN MAYBE GOD WHO SEES DOWN TO THE BARE BONE. WE WERE TWO VERY VERY WILLING HEARTS YEAH. STRIKE TWO MATCHES WHAT DO YOU GET. YOU GET HEAT ONCE THE FIRES LIT. WHEREíS THEREíS FIRE THERE IS SMOKE. STIR UP THE EMBERS AND WATCH THEM GLOW. HERE WE ARE IN THIS GLANCE HERE WE ARE IN THIS CIRCUMSTANCE YOU AND I AND NO ONE ELSE. WE TOOK OUR BEST SHOT WE TOOK OUR HITS. WE GOT THE WHOLE ENCHILADA WITHOUT THE BULLSHIT. YEAH WHAT WE DID MIGHT BE A CRIME SO SUE ME FOR MY CRIMINAL MIND. WE KEEP IT QUITE WE KEEP IT UNDER COVER. ITíS SO EASY WHEN OUR MOUTHS ARE TOGETHER. OUR LIPS ARE SEALED OUR TONGUES ARE TIED OFF GOES THE FIRE ALARM INSIDE. 

Hard Life  ( Sometimes...it is )

ITíS A HARD LIFE WHEN YOUíRE OUT ON THE ROAD. ITíS HARD LIFE WHEN YOUíRE OUT THERE ALL ALONE. ITíS A HARD LIFE WHEN YOU CANíT FIND A FRIEND. ITíS A HARD HARD LIFE. ITíS A HARD LIFE WHEN TROUBLES COME TO CALL. ITíS A HARD LIFE WHEN YOU REAP WHAT YOUíVE SOWN. ITíS A HARD LIFE WHEN NO BIRD SONGS FILL THE AIR. ITíS A HARD HARD LIFE. ITíS A HARD LIFE WHEN YOU CAN SEE WHATíS UP AHEAD OR WHATíS UNDERNEATH. ITíS HARD WHEN IT ALL FALLS APART ITíS A HARD LIFE. ITíS A HARD LIFE WHEN YOU LOSE THE ONE YOU LOVE. ITíS A HARD LIFE WHEN YOU CANíT HEAR THE VOICE OF GOD. ITíS A HARD LIFE WHEN YOU SEEK BUT NEVER FIND. ITíS HARD HARD LIFE. ITíS A HARD LIFE WHEN YOU RUN OUT OF TIME. ITíS A HARD LIFE WHEN YOU GO OUT OF YOUR MIND. ITíS A HARD LIFE FROM BEGINNING TILL THE END. ITíS A HARD HARD LIFE. YEAH HARD TIMES ARE GOING TO COME THEY FALL ON EACH AND EVERYONE. HARD TIMES ARE GOING TO COME. ITíS A HARD LIFE WHEN THEREíS ALWAYS RAIN. ITíS A HARD LIFE WHEN ALL YOU FEEL IS PAIN. ITíS A HARD LIFE WHEN NO HOPE'S IN SIGHT. ITíS A HARD HARD LIFE. 

When It Comes Down To It ( love is all you need)

A GHOST CAME CALLING EARLY IN THE MORNING CAME RIGHT THROUGH THE WALLS. THEN YOU KNOW WHAT HAPPENED I HEARD IT LAUGHING I KNEW THERE JUST HAD TO BE MORE. MORE THAN WAITING FOR THE SUN TO SHINE. MORE THAN I COULD IMAGINE IN MY MIND. I CROSSED MY HEART AND HOPED TO DIE A THOUSAND DEATHS TILL I FOUND LOVE SWEET LOVE. STARTED ON A JOURNEY WAS IN A QUANDARY DIDNíT KNOW WHICH WAY TO GO. FELT THAT GHOST ONCE AGAIN IT SEEMED TO SAY LET YOUR HEART BE YOUR GUIDING FRIEND. RIGHT THERE INSIDE OF ME I TOOK A STEP INTO MY DESTINY. IíLL TRUST THOUGH I CANNOT SEE WITH THIS BLIND FAITH IíLL LEAP INTO LOVES ARMS SWEET ARMS.  WHEN IT COMES DOWN TO IT LOVEíS WORTH PURSUING AT ANY COST. ITíS THE KEEPER OF US ALL. IT SEES OUR HEART KNOWS OUR THOUGHTS. ITíS ALL WE HAVE ITS ALL WEíVE GOT. ITíS REALLY REALLY REALLY ALL I ( WE ) WANT. I FOUND MY HEART HAD LED ME TO A PLACE WHERE ALL I HAD TO DO WAS CHOOSE. I CHOSE HOPE. I CHOSE PEACE. I CHOSE LOVE TOO. THAT GHOST HAD WALKED INTO MY SKIN. MIRACLES REALLY DO HAPPEN. I LAUGHED SO HARD DEEP WITHIN CAUSE THATíS WHERE LOVE STARTS THATíS WHERE LOVE IS. 

Leave

HOW MANY LOVES CAN YOU HOLD IN A LIFETIME. HOW MANY LIPS HAVE YOU KISSED BESIDES MINE. HOW  WILL I KNOW THAT YOU HAVE NOTHING UP YOUR SLEEVE. CAUSE IíVE SEEN YOU STAND BY THE OCEAN AND WATCHED THE BOATS LEAVE. OURS WAS A PERFECT LOVE OR SO I THOUGHT. I COULD MAKE A CLEAN GET AWAY IF I JUST BLINDFOLDED MY HEART. I LOVE TO HEAR YOUR LIES AND I WANT SO TO BELIEVE BUT IíVE SEEN YOU STAND BY THE OCEAN AND WATCHED THE BOATS LEAVE.  THEREíS NOTHING I CAN DO ABOUT IT NOTHING I COULD SAY NOTHING I CAN DO TO MAKE YOU STAY. WHY CANíT FOREVER MEAN FOREVER AND A DAY. WHAT GOOD IS LOVE IF IT GOES AWAY. THESE DAYS MY DOUBTS HAVE DRAINED THE FAITH RIGHT OUT OF ME. IíVE SEEN YOU STAND BY THE OCEAN AND WATCHED THE BOATS LEAVE. WHAT TORMENTS YOUR SOUL TO THE POINT OF NO RETURN. HOW MANY TEARS WILL FALL UNTIL YOU LEARN. I GUESS IT WOULDNíT REALLY MATTER IF I JUST STOPPED YOU AND SAID PLEASE. CAUSE IíVE SEEN YOU STAND BY THE OCEAN AND WATCHED THE BOATS LEAVE.  JUST BECAUSE ITíS BEEN A LONG TIME YEAH ITíS BEEN AWHILE. DOESNíT MAKE IT ANY EASIER EASIER TO SMILE. WHEN I NEED A GOOD CRY WHEN I NEED TO FIND RELEASE. I GO DOWN DOWN BY THE OCEAN AND WATCH THE BOATS LEAVE. 

Driving With You Tonight  ( What could be sweeter? )

Pick me up at six oíclock I want to go driving with you I want to go driving with you tonight. pick me up and donít be late I want to go driving with you I want to go driving with you tonight. weíre getting older much too fast hurry love step on the gas thereís a million and one miles left on this road. I donít want no sunday drive letís spread our wings take off and fly fly. grab the keys put down the top dashboard lights will be enough for me to kiss you and to see you smile. I will sit real close and dream listen to the engine sing sing. now I donít want no sunday drive letís spread our wings take off and fly fly.

The Next Best Thing

BUTTONED UP MY BLACK WOOL SWEATER TO KEEP MARCH WINDS FROM COMING IN. ANXIOUS TRIPS TO THE MAILBOX TO SEE YOUR HANDWRITING AGAIN. EMBELLISHED ON THE PAPER YOU WRITE OF LOVE LINE AFTER LINE. AFTER IíVE READ THOSE LETTERS THE WORDS ARE STILL FRESH IN MY MIND. THE FORSYTHIA IS BLOOMING WEíVE HAD A FEW  WARM DAYS. SNOWDROPS AND CROCUS ARE RESURRECTING FROM THEIR GRAVES. THIS PAST WINTER HERE WITHOUT YOU HAS BEEN THE DEADEST I HAVE KNOWN. LIKE THE FLOWERS I TOO COME ALIVE WHEN WE TALK TOGETHER ON THE PHONE. I CANíT HOLD YOU ANY CLOSER AT THIS MOMENT THAN TO MY EAR ITíS THE NEXT BEST THING TO YOU BEING HERE. IíM KEEPING BUSY WITH MY GARDEN FIRST I TURNED THE HARD HARD GROUND. GAVE IT A DRINK PUT THOSE SEEDS TO SLEEP AND SAID IíD SEE THEM ROUND. I WILL SPEND THE SUMMER WEEDING AND TAKE A PICTURE SO YOU CAN SEE THE GLORY AND THE BEAUTY THAT ONLY SUMMER TIME CAN BRING. AUTUMN LEAVES ARE LOUD WITH COLOR THEY SCREAM COME HERE AND LOOK AT ME. SOON AS I DO THEY DROP FROM VIEW THERE'S NOTHING MORE TO SEE. EACH AND EVERYONE REMINDS ME REMINDS ME OF YOU LIKE EVERY DAY OF EVERY SEASON DOES TOO. LONG TO HEAR YOUR VOICE LONG TO HEAR YOUR VOICE. AGAIN THE SNOW IS FALLING IT HASNíT STOPPED FOR DAYS. ALL THIS WHITE MAKES ME MISS YOUR EYES THE COLOR OF ROBINS EGGS. IF WE GET THOSE 4 MORE INCHES IíLL SURLY BE SNOWED IN I LIGHT A FIRE DREAM OF SPRING I'LL SEE YOU THEN.

Brand New

DO YOU REMEMBER THAT NIGHT I WAS SCARED STANDING IN THE MOONS SPOT LIGHT AND I CONFESSED TO YOU ALL MY FEARS. YOU LOOKED ME STRAIGHT IN THE EYE YOU WIPED THE TEARS THAT I CRIED YOU WIPED THE TEARS THAT I CRIED. THEN YOU KISSED ME FULL ON THE LIPS AND WHAT WAS EVER BROKEN GOT FIXED. SO MANY STORIES TO TELL IíVE BEEN TO HEAVEN IíVE BEEN TO HELL I GUESS YOUíVE HEARD JUST ABOUT EVERYTHING. YOU LOOKED ME STRAIGHT IN THE EYE YOU WIPED THE TEARS THAT I CRIED YOU WIPED THE TEARS THAT I CRIED. THEN YOU KISSED ME FULL ON THE LIPS WHAT WAS EVER BROKEN GOT FIXED. YOUR ARMS AROUND ME LIKE EPOXY GLUE THE POWER OF LOVE ITíLL MAKE YOU BETTER MAKE YOU BETTER THAN BEFORE ITíLL MAKE YOU BRAND NEW. IíVE EXPOSED MYSELF TILL THERE WAS NOTHING LEFT IíM JUST A EMPTY SHELL WITH A BEATING BEATING HEART. YOU LOOKED ME STRAIGHT IN THE EYE YOU WIPED THE TEARS THAT I CRIED YOU WIPED THE TEARS THAT I CRIED. THEN YOU KISSED ME FULL ON THE LIPS AND WHAT WAS EVER BROKEN GOT FIXED. YOUR ARMS AROUND ME LIKE EPOXY GLUE THE POWER OF LOVE IT'LL MAKE YOU BETTER THAN BEFORE IT'LL MAKE YOU BRAND NEW.

So It Goes

BORN IN MARCH SUCH A DORMANT TIME WHEN THINGS LOOK DEAD BUT THEYíRE REALLY FULL OF LIFE. SHE LOVED THE OCEAN LOVED THOSE SALTY CRASHING WAVES SHE WISHED SHE WAS A SEA SHELL OR A BEAUTIFUL MERMAID. SO YOU LIVE YOUR LIFE PRAYING YOU WERE SOMEONE ELSE. YOU FIGHT ALL YOUR LIFE TRYING TO FORGIVE YOURSELF. SO IT GOES SO IT GOES. SOME GAVE HER ATTENTION SHE ATE IT UP. BUT IT NEVER WAS FILLING IT WAS NEVER WAS QUITE ENOUGH. CHAINED TO REJECTION GUILT A LIFELONG SNARE MIRRORS ARE AN ENEMY SHE SWORE TO LOOK BUT NEVER TELL DONíT YOU TELL  SO IT GOES THE TRIALS AND ERRORS OF LIFE. SO IT GOES THE INS AND OUTS OF LIFE. SO IT GOES THE UPS AND DOWNS OF LIFE SO IT GOES. THEY LOVED GOD MORE THAN HER AND TOLD HER IN SO MANY WORDS. PROVE YOUR ALLEGIANCE DO OR DIE SHE HIT HERSELF IN THE EYE TOLD HERSELF NOT TO CRY DON'T YA CRY. 

Wisteria Blooms  ( A summer love song )

WISTERIA BLOOMS ARE FILLED WITH PERFUME ITíS MAY GOING ON JUNE. TIME WONíT STAND STILL NEVER HAS NEVER WILL NEITHER WILL YOUR WONDERING HEART. WHAT DREW US TOGETHER WHAT TORE US APART A MYSTERY NEVER TO BE SOLVED. YOU WAVED YOUR HAND GOOD BYE I STARTED TO CRY AS A HUMMINGBIRD FLEW AWAY. THE ROSES ARE THROUGH HONEYSUCKLE VINES TOO AND SWEET LAVENDER BLUE. THEYíRE FADED MEMORIES LIKE YOU AND LIKE ME LIKE YOU AND ME.

Wrong Again  ( Surprise surprise )

YOU CAME TO ME ENTERING MY SLEEP TOSSING AND TURNING DREAMS PLUNGED THEIR IMAGES LIKE A SHIPS ANCHOR AT SEA AT SEA AND IT WAS DEEP IN MY MEMORY. WRESTLING ALL NIGHT I THOUGHT YOU WERE GONE DIDNíT SUSPECT THE IMPACT YOUíD MADE ON ME WOULDíVE LASTED THIS LONG THIS LONG. OH AND MORNINGS FIND ME DELIRIOUS IT FINDS YOU ALL AROUND. HOWíD YOU GET IN MY COFFEE CUP HOWíD YOU FLOW THROUGH THOSE GROUNDS. I DRINK TO FORGET YOU BUT I MAY AS WELL CATCH THE WIND. OH AND DONAVAN WAS RIGHT AND I WAS WRONG AGAIN. YOU CAME TO ME SOMETHING OUT OF THE BLUE MY HEART DID A DOUBLE TAKE I DIDNíT WANT TO WAKE FROM THE SWEET VISION OF YOU. I REALIZED AT ONCE THERE WAS NOWHERE TO RUN THIS FIGHT WAS RIGGED SO THAT IíD NEVER WIN I SIMPLY GAVE UP I COMPLETELY GAVE IN. YOU CAME TO ME I COULD TELL YOU RANG OUT YOUR LOVE THERE WAS NOTHING SO CHARMING NOTHING ALARMING NO IT WAS CLEAR AS ANY BELL I HEARD IT RING AS I FELL. 

From Where I'm Standing

THE RAIN IS POURING THROUGH THE ROOF I NEED A NEW ONE. THE WINDOWS DOWN BUT IT DOESNíT STOP THE COLD. AND IF YOU PRESS YOUR LITTLE FINGER AGAINST THE WALL BEWARE THEYíRE LISTENING AND PRAYING FOR YOUR FALL. THE RAIN IS POURING THROUGH THE ROOF I NEED A NEW ONE. DOORS CAN LET YOU OUT OR MAKE YOU STAY. AND FROM WHERE IíM STANDING IT LOOKS TO ME AS IF IíM DAMNED EITHER WAY. THE RAIN IS POURING THROUGH THE ROOF I NEED A NEW ONE. DONíT BOTHER ANYMORE TO WIPE YOUR FEET. DRAG THROUGH TILL THE DARK WHEN SLEEPS RETREAT SMOOTHES ALL MY WORRIES LIKE A HOT IRON OVER WRINKLED SHEETS. THE RAIN IS POURING THROUGH THE ROOF I REALLY NEED A NEW ONE.

That's All I Have To Say  

EMOTIONS RUN HIGH SORROWS DEEP IíM TOO WEAK TO FIGHT. ANY OTHER TIME I WOULD HAVE BEEN STRONGER BUT NOT RIGHT HERE AND NOT TONIGHT. PAIN IS BIG AND IíM SO VERY SMALL. IíM GOING TO LET THESE TEARS FALL ROLL AND RAIN RIGHT DOWN MY FACE. IíM GOING TO LET THEM CLEANSE AND WASH ALL MY GRIEF AWAY. IíM BLUE THATíS ALL I HAVE TO SAY. OVERCAST THOUGHTS UNINVITED BILLOW OVER ME. ALTHOUGH I PRAY STILL THEY THREATEN AND WILL NOT GO AWAY. CONSTANTLY REMINDING.  LIFE AND DEATH A BIZARRE MYSTERY. I DONíT UNDERSTAND ALL I KNOW IS IíM AS MISERABLE AS I CAN BE. A GOOD CRY IS REALLY WHAT I NEED. 

New CD's coming .... hopefully soon
