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 ©

My hearts my own abandoned building

SAMSUNG

My love she’s not so much a mountain as a distance
my adoration’s only written on these walls
but it’s her love that drives with heady slow resistance
as mine relies on lonely shadows where they fall

and I’m just hanging on her doorway softly listening
beneath that street light where she parks it isn’t far
I’m reaching out to see her blue eyes lofty glisten
somewhere tonight so bright and beautiful you are

and so I wait
to hear the whispers on
the stories told to little children
without the fear of pain foregone alone
my hearts my own abandoned building

sweetheart’s divine who finds unwritten letters
awake tonight a diamond shines below her kiss
a foolish game to tell yourself
she’s thinkin’ of me in her sleep
a polished jewel don’t ask a fool for what she’s missed

but still I’ll wait
to hear the whispers on
the stories told to little children
without the fear of pain foregone alone
my hearts my own abandoned building ©


She’s throwing stones

Gravel_Road_bw_3

In the southern comfort
found around the summer
you came from down a lonely road
without a name
your eyes they shined a blue
that made me wonder what you knew
about the places
broken hearts go in the rain

But now tonight I’m feelin’ like
that southern comfort
and as your eyes
I’m feelin’ blue
cause I’m alone
what did I do to turn
your precious heart against me?
I wonder why you never shy
from throwin’ stones

Did I leave you
in the clouds of feelin’ lonely?
I never seen us walkin’
down this kinda road
but on the ground
below your feet
I see the gravel…
those kinda rocks
are gonna hurt me
when they’re thrown

Now darlin perfect ain’t the name
my mama gave me
and when you picked me up
you found a rollin’ stone
but if you lose me
in the gravel
don’t forget me…
my heart of glass
don’t stand a chance
with throwin’ stones ©
