A snowflake staccato

I knew it when I found
before I
 even got her name
she’s the pot of gold
and truth be told,
the prize of playin’ games…
she’s worthy and it’s funny
but before I saw her face…
I knew from fallin’ in the cold
all snowflakes fell the same

I couldn’t even disagree
the lies that I’ve been sold
tonight that story melted
just like ice that wasn’t cold
the first time that I tasted proof
her tender lovin’ came…
a snowflakes made for me and you
the rest are all the same  

some are in the air outside
like angels on the lawn…
sometimes they’re waitin’ down a road
that’s made for slippin’ on…
she turned the rest like water dried
disappearing from the flame…
a million snowflakes in the sky
she’s the one who’s not the same ©


Raindrops don’t concern a drowning man


In the morning when the clouds
are hanging heavy
you’re watching out for me
but still won’t take my hand
you only wait to see the storm
that’s headed for me
but honey raindrops don’t concern
a drowning man

I’ve heard the sirens blowing
in their final warning
upon the lips of every lover that I’ve met
and still my ship keeps swimmin’
down that broken harbor
a river filled with
all the tear drops
soaking wet

So darlin’ don’t you even worry
bout the rescue
and there’s no need to bother
reaching out your hand
the salty tears it’s given me
my swimmin’ don’t concern the sea
and honey raindrops
don’t concern a drowning man ©

She’s throwing stones


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 ©


Angels falling in the rain


the night is dark and lonely here
she walks away in those pretty shoes
her feet hold up my everything
grace I could never lose…
her eyes before my own reflected
such a day of pretty pain
but the world could end
when I least expect it
if I lost her in the rain

A ship could sink on bars of sand
with halo’s over sea and land
the nightingales don’t understand
and never sing the same…
but she ain’t about fragility
my melodic princess feeds the flame
even angels shining brilliantly
fall down in pouring rain

the couple of years I’ve got her on
don’t make me brighter
right or wrong
she knows the words to every song
I’m playing in my mind…
there’s only one she doesn’t know
my hearts the beat
the words her name
a song to keep my angel safe
from fallin’ in the rain ©
