After 30…

Standard

medium_424222030

 

As if some scattering wind took hold,

untethered the anchor of my life

The course previously set upon,

untroubled by curse or strife

 

I grasped the reigns on my stallion run wild

His strength mightier than my own

Perhaps my courage failed at last

I reached for a blurried vision of home

 

Secure not my laughter, for my smile has fallen,

the pedestal too high I was placed upon

As a child I imagined what one day I’d be

never realizing I’d only be grown

Memory Lane – song lyric

Standard

Song lyric time and this one has an unusual rhyme pattern in the verses, but I like unusual so here goes:

medium_8594078021

She don’t get out very much

Takes a walk from time to time

Strolls down Single Avenue

Heads for the Love Lost Bar

Thinks about when he was hers

Until she spends her last dime…

 

(chorus)

On a drink to remember

All the things they did

Having one to forget, another to forgive

One more to down the pride

Bitter on her tongue

One to kill the pain

Walking down Memory Lane

 

She heads back home at dawn

Flashes of him in her life

Sends her to Regret Boulevard

Curses herself for being a fool

Knows she can’t find her way home

Back to Deliverance Drive…

 

With a drink to remember

All the things they did

Having one to forget, another to forgive

One more to down the pride

Bitter on her tongue

One to kill the pain

Walking down Memory Lane

 

Bridge:

She wants to let him go

She wants to set him free

But she keeps holding on

To every memory

 

With a drink to remember

All the things they did

Having one to forget, another to forgive

One more to down the pride

Bitter on her tongue

One to kill the pain

Walking down Memory Lane

The Little Lies

Standard

 

medium_308747194

Some are worthy, some are not

Round and round we go

If the past rules the present

It’s the little lies that grow

If your burdens break the bank

Tis a fracture in the soul

 

Some have mercy, some do not

Tit for tat you take

Smile and wish all sinners well

Do it just for heaven’s sake

Good folk never count the sins

With a hello and a handshake

 

Some will bleed, some will not

Rattle rattle goes the cage

Let your victim write the story

Watch her read every page

Plead with that of man’s regret,

Will I never earn my wage?

 

Some will love, some cannot

Fear is their plight

They’ll take all you have to give

Leave you longing for the night

You’ll tell yourself it’s all your fault

He’ll let you believe you’re right

Hunted by the grief that seeks your soul,

Longing for the whys, the need to know,

Don’t give up, it’s almost light…
