And It Goes

20150303_065749~2

just because I never complain
don’t mean I ain’t
been hit by the train
and if you ever did see me
so thoughtful for long
don’t believe I ain’t said
I was right when I’s wrong

mr tell me becomes
of a man without sin
never tried just to lose
never died for his friends

still you look at my smile
and profile such a scene
ain’t no man with no worry
thumbin’ rides through a dream

just because in my troubles
my face never shows
to the Lord on that train
my hurt waves
and it goes©

It’s your love that takes me in

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 ©

  

It lets you go

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…©

All I’ve got are words

I wanna play guitar like Hank tonight
and speak my heart like Waylon sings
Blowin’ wind between the exit signs
of vocal chords and guitar strings

So you could hear my love in every room
that hides in words I’ve written down
A setting sun without guitar strings
Sings lovin’ songs
without a sound

I wanna sing to guitar melodies
you’d hear my love songs
far from home
on every stage from here to Tennessee
through shiny pickups made of chrome

And on the road I’d write in harmony
of spinning wheels and tuned guitars
I’d put some miles between your memories
on a silver eagle with the stars. ©
