For a Friend


You can only go so far
Down in the sea
The desert sun will stop shining
Eventually
Someday every love will die
And every promise, will become a lie


But until then here I am
Seems like where going no where
but the world still spins
I’m content just to lie
By your side


Baby eyes
Try not to cry
We may not have forever
but tonight we’re still alive

Every single cell,
like an electric spark
Knows why I’m here,
When you touch my heart
I am through with yesterday
And tomorrow, never mattered anyway

From the dawn of birth to the dusk of death
We spend our lives trying to live
Now we know that it will end
I’ve got you
I am fulfilled.

Baby eyes
Try not to cry
We may not have forever
but tonight we’re still alive

Baby eyes
One last sigh
We’ll stay awake together
And live a life time in one night

Stutter


I have to force back a sigh
Hold my breath wanting this feeling to stay
When you look into my eyes
You say you catch me looking the other way

Your reading rhymes
I’m taking in your every word
Your meter offers me a peek into your world
My mind’s wings beat and flutter
You make my heart stutter

Your sexy brain gives me a flash of fear
I’m not your type and I don’t know what I’m doing here
Then you take my hand in your’s
You wrap your fingers around my life
You give me breath with little force
My mind begins to flutter
You make my heart stutter.

The Me I Be


I want to swing like a monkey
in the trees
I want to swim like a turtle in the sea
If I could race like a cheetah
nobody would beat-a-me
But I also dig being the me that I be


I wish I was a bear getting honey
From the bees
Only worried about the bear necessities
If I could fly like an eagle
I could see everything he sees
But I also dig being the me that I be


All the elephants
And bouncing kangaroos
They have special things
That they can do
But I do too


I’m going to swing like a monkey
In the trees
I’m going to swim like a turtle
In the sea
And when the eagle flies overhead
He’ll look down and wish he was me
It’s pretty great being the me that I
Be.

The Songwriter's Song


Don’t rhyme fire with desire
Don’t rhyme kiss with miss
Don’t rhyme heaven above
With the word love

Don’t rhyme baby with baby
Don’t follow it up with you’re
Driving me crazy
You’re tired cliché’s make love see lame

I don’t think that you even realize
Your lazy efforts kill the emotion of every line

Love wont rhyme
Love wont jive
It ainst soft n sweet
Gentle or kind

It can give you a reason to live
Then turn around and take your life

It’s a many splintered thing but it wont rhyme

I don’t think that you even realize
Your lazy efforts kill the emotion of every line

Love wont rhyme
Love wont jive
It ainst soft n sweet
Gentle or kind

It can give you a reason to live
Then turn around and take your life

It will knock you off your feet
Make your heart skip a thump

It’s a many splintered thing but it wont rhyme

It’s a many splintered thing but it wont rhyme

Love will change your life, but never rhyme.

Second Hand Coat


One pocket he keeps his stones
The other his beatles
He loves to hit the pipe
But afraid of the needles

He claims he wants to see the world
But he wastes his time staying high
He aint willing to give up what he’s earned
There’s no need to waste the sky

He’s got a second hand coat two sizes too big
It’s got plenty of room for his thoughts and that he digs

He claims he wants to see the world
But he wastes his time staying high
He aint willing to give up what he’s earned
There’s no need to waste the sky

He claims he wants to see the world
But he wastes his time staying high
He aint willing to give up what he’s earned
There’s no need to waste the sky
That bitch aint gonna fly

Molly's Smile


I hear you calling my name
A thousand miles away
I’ve come to be by your side
And make everything alright

I hold your breath in my hands
Over your mouth
I watch your eyes grow dim
As life’s light goes out


I walked across this country to be by your side
You’re the only woman I’ve ever loved.
They said that you smiled, the day I arrived.
Now your smile is gone.
Now your smile is gone. Molly I’m sorry I cried.
I hate to see you this way
You’re the memory of the woman that raised me from a child
A cancer riddled shell of pain


Grandma look in my eyes
Put your hand in mine
There’s only one cure for the suffering you endure
Time to say goodnight
I love you Molly, goodbye

I walked across this country to be by your side
You’re the only woman I’ve ever loved.
They said that you smiled, the day I arrived.
Now your smile is gone.
I walked across this country to be by your side
You’re the only woman I’ve ever loved.
They said that you smiled, the day I arrived.
But now your smile is gone.
You will smile no more

Lovelock


Desert storms in phoenix fill the sky
The Colorado River is damn near dry
You think recycled paper will set things right
Tell yourself another lie.

I’m not against making a change
But we don’t have time to waste
need to prepare for what’s to come
The damage can’t be undone

James Lovelock said
Most of mankind will be dead
only half a billion will survive
should be an exciting time

Conservation's a waste of time
You should focus on saving your life
I know you hope to make a change
it's too late
--End Chorus –

Get rid of all the people alive
pollution that powers your lights
methane spewing cows
You still wont stop what’s going down

accept the things you cannot change
Find the courage to change
what you can --Chorus--
I know you hope to make a change
it's too late

James Lovelock said
Most of mankind will be dead
only half a billion will survive
should be an exciting time

Conservation's a waste of time
You should focus on saving your life
I know you hope to make a change
it's too late

You’re like a child playing pretend
you don't realize this is the end
need to prepare for what’s to come
the damage can't be undone
hope of survival is none

Montana glaciers are lacking ice
The Colorado River is running dry
Arizona sand storms at record heights
Seems pretty clear we’ve run out of time
