I can barely hear his cry

guitar barelycry

Hear that lonely guitar tune
it sounds so low tonight
that music man he sings so low
I can barely hear his cry

I’ve never known a sadder sound
than the one I hear tonight
like moon light on a newborn wound
in a child too young to cry

have you ever seen an empty room
where love forgets to shine
that guitar man is leaving soon
I can hear him say goodbye

the gentle weeping lonesome gloom
cuts through a moonlit night
and as he plays his final tune
I can barely hear his cry ©

I can’t sleep

395260_3178133779094_1746856539_n

Perhaps your ways
relax my need
to see the sandman
bring my dreams

I think of you
and I get weak
you cross my mind
and I can’t sleep

I toss and turn
I walk a mile
my eyes they burn
and still I smile
you make me fall
in love so deep
I think of you
and I can’t sleep

some day I know
like fallin’ rain

I’ll drop beside
the love I blame

that’s when I’ll hold
the one I keep
inside my heart
when I can’t sleep ©

I’m runnin’ wild

534957_3870638251273_2107307077_n

Bitter sweet
I’m burnin’ down
those memories
just like a child
cutting way and
some may say
I’m runnin’ wild

I’m runnin’ wild from where I’ve been
away from home and all my friends
can’t see myself inside a world without her eyes
I’ll sit and listen to her songs
I’ll drink this bottle til it’s gone
Lord I feel just like a child
I’m runnin’ wild

nights are cold
my fevers hot
can’t get along
with what I got
gone for days
without her smile
I’m runnin’ wild

I’m runnin’ wild from where I’ve been
away from home and all my friends
can’t see myself inside a world without her eyes
I’ll sit and listen to her songs
I’ll drink this bottle til it’s gone
Lord I feel just like a child
I’m runnin’ wild

angels wings
come take me home
without her heart
I’m on my own
I’ll cut away
but you could say
I’m runnin’ wild ©

It’s your love that takes me in

 488345_4515617895361_1757488193_n

You know I’ve held onto my money
and I’ve spent my every dime
cross
the tracks that lead to nowhere
chased my dreams across the sky

found a crippled man was walkin’
bought
a running man new shoes
seen
 a poor man never talkin’

watched a rich one sing the blues

But when I’ve had enough
there’s nothing I can do
when the rain won’t stop
it gets hard to wear my shoes
lookin’ out my window
I just can’t find a friend
it’s my love that keeps me walkin’
it’s your love that takes me in

I took a ride into the city
got broken down across the line
walked beside the kids with nothing
I’ve been rich without a dime
met the lost man by the dozen
been a free man doing time
got the truth from who I trusted
looked in the mirror and told some lies

But when I’ve had enough
there’s nothing I can do
when the rain won’t stop
it’s so hard to wear my shoes
lookin’ out my window
when I just can’t find a friend
it’s my love that keeps me walkin’
it’s your love that takes me in ©

  

Streets never seem to know her name

422211_4575799839872_645535259_n

You know the lonely kind
one who pretends to find
smiles in a place that looks so sad
she walks the darkest streets
for everyone she meets
why does she pay to hurt so bad

Wonder why she flies
thunder should tell the wise
one heart is burning by the flame
she finds when she falls
no one will hear her call
streets never seem to know her name

In every guy she meets
out in the city streets
why does she look for what she’s had
seems just a mystery
throughout her history
finding her good in someone bad

Wonder why she flies
thunder should tell the wise
one heart is burning by the flame
she finds when she falls
no one will hear her call
streets never seem to know her name

When the thunder is passin’ her by
and the fire quits burning
she can tell you
it never dies

Wonder why she flies
thunder should tell the wise
one heart is burning by the flame
she finds when she falls
no one will hear her call
streets never seem to know her name

This warm and pretty day

SAMSUNG

Well I’m out here
I could tell you
bout a thousand from my home
I could tell you I’ve been troubled
and I’m out here on my own
where the miles keep
the bottles empty
and the worry washed away
but the truth is
what’s the use when
I’m lookin’ out on
a pretty day

and the money
ain’t what it used to
be and many
are feelin’ down
and our dreams are
down the tubes while
there isn’t anyone around
I could tell you
bout the nights
without the lights
just lie awake
but the truth is
what’s the use when
the Lord has made us
a pretty day

I’ll pretend I’m goin’ fishin’
instead of wishin’ I was gone
and my friends you’re always welcome
to pack a bag and come along
we could talk about
the good times
set beside me
wash away
with a cold one
in the sunshine
of this warm and pretty day ©

It lets you go


404199_3159315268643_414191807_n
Now, here you go again
talkin’ of your dreamin’
afraid you missed the beating
from your heart…
beside you sleeping memories of
the things that seem to leave you
like a runway
vanished in the dark…

the night remembers dreams can get
forgotten by the meaning…
in the one who loves you when you’re gone…
the crystal ball finds you without
“sometimes there’s a reason”
and dreams won’t always find you

where you run…

they let you walk
and let you go…

dreams can only find you when you’re dreamin’
love will only leave you when you run…
when the night gets cold
young hearts are freezing

only make believing you’re alone
but, you’re alone…
when you’re alone…

lonely nights come only from the feeling
a well with only wishes
is in your soul…

when your love runs cold
you stop believing

a runway never finds you
if you let go…

and if you walk…
it lets you go…
and if you run…
it lets you go…

dreams can only find you when you’re dreamin’
love will only leave
when you let it go…

the nights may find you cold
two hearts are beating
only make believing you’re alone
but, you’re alone…
when you’re alone…©
