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 ©

Don’t forget to love somebody

270924_2212112589168_4084912_n

For the good in everybody
we can’t find you when you’re home
for the lost and lonely people
we can’t hold you when you’re gone
for the one who seeks protection
in the bottle or a gun
don’t forget to love somebody
don’t forget to love someone

When the children need their mothers
will the fathers have their sons
when somebody hurts their daughters
will their brothers be the ones
to provide and give direction
and a hand to walk them home
don’t forget to love somebody
don’t forget to love someone

You can see it in the bible
do you see it in yourself
do you think someone will find you
if they’re lost and need your help
in a world of hungry people
is it only flesh and bone
don’t forget to love somebody
don’t forget to love someone ©

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 ©

  

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…©

I’m gonna fly away

575387_3870735493704_764038628_n

One of these mornings
I’m gonna just fly away
like a bird with no warning
not a word left to say
when the winter has fallen
and the sinner in me
softly hears Jesus calling
honey that’s where I’ll be

It’s a window we look through
in the hearts that we hold
and two ears that wont listen
to the stories we’re told
like the dogs when they’re barking
in the coldness of night
and the eyes of my women
in the love of my life

Don’t you wonder about me
if you’re looking outside
in the nights before morning
when you think you can hide
I’ll be frost on the window
whispering softly I’ll say
don’t you worry about me
love we all fly away

One of these mornings
I’m gonna just fly away
like a bird with no warning
not a word left to say
when the winter has fallen
and the sinner in me
softly hears Jesus calling
honey that’s where I’ll be ©

It seems like you don’t love me anymore

SAMSUNG

It seems like you don’t love me anymore
with your words that cut like knives
each time we speak
trapped inside a painted corner
in those eyes I know as former
memories of what your love
has done for me

It makes no difference
if the love you had is gone
sure by now my eyes
closed
tightly I can see
and in my heart I know its wrong
to be somewhere I don’t belong
where I can see
that you don’t love me anymore

I hope some day
the road your headed
takes a turn

but I’ve grown tired of watching
bridges that you burn
and tonight I’m gonna run
cause I can’t take it anymore
and I can see that you
don’t love me anymore ©

A baby in her blue jeans and a lady in her shoes

Tightrope still 2

She walked the roads like dancers
on the ropes of Mr. Kite
but I can’t hope to see her dancin’ anymore
the sun reveals the living things
not all the reasons why
she didn’t want to keep on dancin’ anymore

I listen to the radio
playing Elton John for me
with his voice I see her
dancing in the sand
she’s talking in her sleep
but every secret that she keeps
won’t put her back inside
the promise of my hand

But I can’t see her anymore
not out there dancing in the street
I see her heart and light inside
the eyes of lonely girls I meet

the voice that’s on the radio
sings a song that helps the bruise
of a baby in her blue jeans
and a lady in her shoes

Cause I can’t hear her anymore
she doesn’t call from down the street
and I’ll never see her dancing on
that rope below her feet
without a chance to feel the sun
she never has to lose
she’s a baby in her blue jeans
and a lady in her shoes ©

Somewhere inside her heart

Beach-Couple-1024x6831-560x373

The weather man predicts today
the clouds above are filled with rain
It’s coming down like falling sand but,
still she’s walking in her kingdom…

a castle built by crashing waves
her eyes of diamonds fill the evening
we’re holding hands
and blocking rain drops
she’s like the stars that never
will depart from a troubled sea
and somewhere in her heart
she believes in me

Her broken mirrors of scattered pieces
reflect my only masterpieces 

she holds the only keys to secret
kingdoms that were meant for me
and heavy hearts with heavy burdens
just fall apart like castles
made for her by the sea 

because somewhere inside her heart
she believes in me ©
