Make Your Point

Once, I saw you as yourself
Now in the twilight, feeling someone else
Come through the doorway, stand in the light of day
Don’t tell me stories, say what you came to say

Make your point, to me
I deserve at least that much
Make your point, and then go 
and leave me here as such 

Crawl back inside my chair
Drive through the night and I end up nowhere
Sweet soft vibrations ringing in between my ears
Shatter the eardrum, too played out for tears 

Make your point, to me
I deserve at least that much
Make your point, and then go 
and leave me here as such 


Always the Same

I’ve seen too many things until now
Don’t be offended if I don’t know how to respond
to give of my heart
Why is it always the same when I finally give in? 

Tell me you love me, will I do the same?
Dancing the dance between coyness and blame and repose
a slippery slope
Why is it always the same when I finally give in? 

I can’t say no given those eyes
Love in warfare doesn’t apply 

Can I believe in a love that won’t fade
or are the type to love and evade the truth
when push comes to shove?
Why is it always the same when I finally give in? 

Why do we sometimes believe in a chance?
I may be stupid to trust in romance, but for now
I’ll give you my heart
Why is it always the same when I finally give in?
Why is it always the same when I finally give in? 


Rhyme or Reason

Make a noise, in the night
Can’t remember what you’re dreaming
At least you didn’t wake up screaming
Watch the light, on the wall
Shadows trying to tell you something
Past and present memories morphing 

All the little moments in the night
Find myself avoiding all that’s light
Rhyme or reason doesn’t fit the bill
I’m not sure if daytime ever will 

What if time made a sound?
Deafening as night approaches
Dreading dawn as it encroaches
Come alive, in the dark
Taste the sweat from fingertips
Crimson promise on your lips 

All the little moments in the night
Find myself avoiding all that’s light
Rhyme or reason doesn’t fit the bill
I’m not sure if daytime ever will 

Maybe you, maybe me
Traveling the dim forever
What the meaning of forever? 

All the little moments in the night
Find myself avoiding all that’s light
Rhyme or reason doesn’t fit the bill
I’m not sure if daytime ever will 


No Forgiveness 

There, in the midst of early rain
All in the name of pondering
Comes an emptiness and an echo of the possibilities
In the clouds of morning coffee she can see what’s meant to be
and be 

Quarantine your sanity
Hide behind your vanity
She makes up little stories to explain away her tears
But the hurt is very real and only multiplies with years
and years. 

There will be no forgiveness, no pardon
No angels of mercy, descending from on high
If only, he’d simply, say “I’m sorry”
No forgiveness, no pardon
A secondary life 

Occupied is settling
‘til she lets him in again
And she finds that she is angry at every little thing
And the thing that gets inside her most is the sure and subtle sting 
of love 

So she lives another face
Settles in another place
But in unexpected moments he comes back into her mind
The addiction of emotion and the comfort of the strife 
embraced 

There will be no forgiveness, no pardon
No angels of mercy, descending from on high
If only, he’d simply, say “I’m sorry”
No forgiveness, no pardon
Is how she lives her life 


Isn’t It So

Isn’t is so, the time of season
Maybe I know, no rhyme or reason
All the light has left the sky
Tailor made to wonder why
Which way to go
And isn’t is so? 

Tell me a tale, of sleep and wonder
Never to fail, the only one who
Made me smile amid the tears
Laid a hand upon my fears
Hope from below
And isn’t is so 

Trouble comes inside when I am left to hide 
here on my own
The coldness of the steel, against me as I feel
Imbroglio -and isn’t is so?


All We Ever Need

What if I told I could fly a hundred stories above the ground
Would you give me your hand and then
We would go sailing without a sound 

And if I stood behind you arms outstretched and waiting for your fall
Would you release the fear inside and tumble like a waterfall
to me, what will be
If you’ll only come away with me 

Come on and ride the night with me
Like two thieves in the night we’ll flee
Pull a memory long forgotten, make the most of what we’ve got then
All we’ll ever need is ‘tween our hearts. 

And if I push the straightaway and hug the corners like a fool
And scream along until we stop, guided by un-resolving rules
Would you commit both here and now to take the strangest trip of all
to let me dip into your soul and give the very special part
to me, what will be
If you’d only come along with me 

Come on and ride the night with me
Like two thieves in the night we’ll flee
Pull a memory long forgotten, make the most of what we’ve got then
All we’ll ever need is ‘tween our hearts 

What if I told you I could fly and all you had to do was come
into a different state of time and change the way you see the world
We live, we die, so often bounded by the hurt that clips our wings
What if I told you we could fly, create a world apart for you
and me, what will be
If you’d only come along with me

Come on and ride the night with me
Like two thieves in the night we’ll flee
Pull a memory long forgotten, make the most of what we’ve got then
All we’ll ever need is ‘tween our hearts. 

Come on and ride the night with me
Like two thieves on the run we’ll be
Pull a memory long forgotten, make the most of what we’ve got then
All we’ll ever need is ‘tween our hearts. 


Green Redux (Just The Way of Love)

She hears the ringing of the phone
She knows tonight she won’t be alone
A moment now is just enough
She knows it’s just the way of love
She feels it as she’s lying there
And now she’s got a reason to care
and now it’s
She knows it’s just the way of love 

Outside, the world, they don’t see us
She makes a sound inside, it’s just
the way she feels, she can’t explain
She knows it’s just the way of pain
And if she’ll never lose the faith
She’ll see that it is worth the wait
and now it’s
She knows it’s just the way of love 

The wind inside, the pounding rain
The passion there, it feels insane
A moment now is just enough
She knows it’s just the way of love
She knows it’s just the way of love
Of love, of love 


Turn to Stone

Growl in my throat, not much to do tonight
Wind off the lake, (I) turn to stone
A chill in the air, pounds on the windowpane 
Runs thru my bones, I turn to stone

Sort my affairs, a good streak gone bad
And now it is time to settle the score 

My fate in hands of some guy from Birmingham
Unsympathetic toreador  

Time ain’t my friend, time to leave town I guess
Options are few, I turn to stone 

In some distant time, kind word’ll be said
My epitaph  
I turn to stone 


Never Be the Same

I never knew all the things we could do 
after Mom & Daddy left the room
Too shy to stop, as my hands reached the top 
and I finally saw the promised land
Stop keep going not there little lower 
Bite my ear, God’ll punish a sinner…. 

Careful your desires
A wish you might aquire
See what you became
Never be the same 

Experience is greedy, who’d’ve guessed how needy 
with the calls and the roses and the ring
Now here we are down the linein the wine
and love is a subjective thing
Yes no maybe so, how did your day go?
Run around, lay down, pretty little nightgown 

Careful your desires
A wish you might acquire
See what you became
Never be the same
