not forgotten you

Thursday, May 17th, 2018

Came home a little early last night
Shed not a tear when I turned out the light
No, I don’t hurt like I used to
Didn’t wait for the knock on my door
Drawer in the room ain’t empty anymore
So many got it tougher than I do
But I have not forgotten
I have not forgotten
I have not forgotten you

Time flies and you just know
Time to think about letting go
‘Times I even forget to be blue
Big feet to shuffle them sands
Leave no trail and slip right through your hands
Done every little thing I know to do
But I have not forgotten
I have not forgotten
I have not forgotten you

And I said “Hail the western bound with it’s black tail flying”
Lay on the rails and leave me to dream
Of where your love was mine

Time flies and you just know
Time to think about letting go
‘Times I even forget to be blue
But I have not forgotten
I have not forgotten
I have not forgotten you

No, I have not forgotten
I have not forgotten
I have not forgotten you

Hey I have not forgotten
I have not forgotten
I have not forgotten you

this is me

Sunday, March 4th, 2018

I am not a stranger to the dark
“Hide away,” they say
“‘Cause we don’t want your broken parts”
I’ve learned to be ashamed of all my scars
“Run away,” they say
“No one’ll love you as you are”

But I won’t let them break me down to dust
I know that there’s a place for us
For we are glorious

When the sharpest words wanna cut me down
I’m gonna send a flood, gonna drown them out
I am brave, I am bruised
I am who I’m meant to be, this is me
Look out ’cause here I come
And I’m marching on to the beat I drum
I’m not scared to be seen
I make no apologies, this is me

Oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh, oh

Another round of bullets hits my skin
Well, fire away ’cause today,
I won’t let the shame sink in
We are bursting through the barricades
And reaching for the sun
(We are warriors)
Yeah, that’s what we’ve become
(Yeah, that’s what we’ve become)

I won’t let them break me down to dust
I know that there’s a place for us
For we are glorious

When the sharpest words wanna cut me down
I’m gonna send a flood, gonna drown them out
I am brave, I am bruised
I am who I’m meant to be, this is me
Look out ’cause here I come
And I’m marching on to the beat I drum
I’m not scared to be seen
I make no apologies, this is me

Oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh, oh
This is me

(Oh-oh-oh-oh)
And I know that I deserve your love
(Oh-oh-oh-oh)
There’s nothing I’m not worthy of
Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh, oh

When the sharpest words wanna cut me down
I’m gonna send a flood, gonna drown them out
This is brave, this is bruised
This is who I’m meant to be, this is me

(Look out ’cause here I come)
Look out ’cause here I come
(And I’m marching on to the beat I drum)
Marching on, marching, marching on
(I’m not scared to be seen
I make no apologies, this is me)

(Oh-oh-oh-oh)
When the sharpest words wanna cut me down
I’m gonna send a flood, gonna drown them out
(Oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh)
(Oh-oh-oh-oh)
I’m gonna send a flood, gonna drown them out
(Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh, oh)
This is me

a place called home

Wednesday, February 28th, 2018

Well, it’s not hard to see
Anyone who looks at me
Knows I am just a rolling stone
Never landing anyplace to call my own
To call my own

Well, it seems like so long ago
But it really ain’t you know
I started off a crazy kid
Miracle I made it through the things I did
The things I did

Someday I’ll go where there ain’t no rain or snow
Till then, I travel alone
And I make my bed with the stars above my head
And dream of a place called home

I had a chance to settle down
Get a job and live in town
Work in some old factory
I never liked the foreman standing over me
Over me

Oh I’d rather walk a winding road
Rather know the things I know
See the world with my own eyes
No regrets, no looking back, no goodbyes
No goodbyes

Someday I’ll go where there ain’t no rain or snow
Till then, I travel alone
And I make my bed with the stars above my head
And I dream of a place called home

And someday I’ll go where there ain’t no rain or snow
Till then, I travel alone
And I make my bed with the stars above my head
And I dream of a place called home

Someday I’ll go where there ain’t no rain or snow
And dream of a place called home

if no one will listen

Tuesday, January 2nd, 2018

Maybe no one told you there is strength in your tears
And so you fight to keep from pouring out
But what if you unlock the gate that keeps your secret soul?
Do you think there’s enough that you might drown?

If no one will listen
If you decide to speak
If no one is left
Standing after the bombs explode
If no one wants to look at you
For what you really are
I will be here still

No one can tell you where you alone must go
There’s no telling what you will find there
And god I know the fear that eats away at your bones
Screaming every step, “Just stay here”

If no one will listen
If you decide to speak
If no one is left
Standing after the bombs explode
If no one wants to look at you
For what you really are
I will be here still

If you find your fists are raw and red from beating yourself down
If your legs have given out under the weight
If you find that you’ve been settling for a world of gray
So you wouldn’t have to face down your own hate

If no one will listen
If you decide to speak
If no one is left
Standing after the bombs explode
If no one wants to look at you
For what you really are
I will be here still

If no one will listen
If you decide to speak
If no one is left
Standing after the bombs explode
If no one wants to look at you
For what you really are
I will be here still
I will be here still

if tomorrow never comes

Tuesday, December 26th, 2017

Sometimes late at night,
I lie awake and watch her sleeping.
She’s lost in peaceful dreams,
So I turn out the lights and lay there in the dark.
And the thought crosses my mind
If I never wake up in the morning
Would she ever doubt the way I feel
About her in my heart?

If tomorrow never comes
Will she know how much I loved her?
Did I try in every way to show her every day
That she’s my only one?
And if my time on earth were through
And she must face the world without me
Is the love I gave her in the past
Gonna be enough to last
If tomorrow never comes?

‘Cause I’ve lost loved ones in my life
Who never knew how much I loved them
Now I live with the regret
That my true feelings for them never were revealed
So I made a promise to myself
To say each day how much she means to me
And avoid that circumstance
Where there’s no second chance to tell her how I feel

If tomorrow never comes
Will she know how much I loved her?
Did I try in every way to show her every day
That she’s my only one?
And if my time on earth were through
And she must face the world without me
Is the love I gave her in the past
Gonna be enough to last
If tomorrow never comes?

So tell that someone that you love
Just what you’re thinking of
If tomorrow never comes

where we left off

Friday, March 24th, 2017

Well if we had the words in times like these
We wouldn’t have to stare
We’d both know what to say
And how to pray the things to do to save the day
Some will call it sacrifice
They’ll look at this and never see
The beauty or how much it means
The blood that runs inside of me
I know you understand
That there’s no map for this, no plan

And the way we say goodbye
Is not the way that anyone would do
Like a wave out on the ocean
I will always come right back to you
I could blink, not a moment is gone
We’ll pick up where we left off

It’s like the world is draped in a camouflage
And sometimes never what it seems
Everyone’s got different things
They hide behind or try to be
But the things I carry with me
All remind me who I am
When so much of me is not with me
What matters most is what I leave
Behind for you to keep
Yeah, so smile when you think of me

And though the way we say goodbye
Is not the way that anyone would do
Like a wave out on the ocean
I will always come right back to you
I could blink, and not a moment is gone
Yeah we’ll pick up where we left off

Oh the way we say goodbye
Is not the way the anyone would do
Like a wave out on the ocean
I will always come right back to you
Nothing changed, nothing fades, nothing lost
And we pick up where we left off

on my own

Thursday, February 16th, 2017

And now I’m all alone again,
Nowhere to turn, no one to go to
Without a home, without a friend,
Without a face to say hello to
And now the night is near
Now I can make believe he’s here

Sometimes I walk alone at night
When everybody else is sleeping
I think of him and then I’m happy
With the company I’m keeping
The city goes to bed
And I can live inside my head

On my own
Pretending he’s beside me
All alone
I walk with him til morning
Without him
I feel his arms around me
And when I lose my way I close my eyes
And he has found me

In the rain, the pavement shines like silver
All the lights are misty in the river
In the darkness, the trees are full of starlight
And all I see is him and me forever and forever

And I know it’s only in my mind
That I’m talking to myself and not to him
And although I know that he is blind
Still I say, there’s a way for us

I love him
But when the night is over
He is gone
The river’s just a river
Without him,
The world around me changes
The trees are bare and everywhere
The streets are full of strangers

I love him
But every day I’m learning
All my life
I’ve only been pretending
Without me
His world will go on turning
A world that’s full of happiness
That I have never known

I love him
I love him
I love him
But only on my own

vanished

Friday, February 10th, 2017

Not a day, not a dime,
Not a moment is returned
Nice of me, good of you
Nice of us to think about it
Good of them, nice of it
Good enough to kind of cloud it
Not a word, not a thought
Not a thing done about it

I vanished Friday and appeared on Sunday
Only to regain my strength and do it again
I vanished Friday and appeared on Sunday
Only to regain my strength and do it again

Didn’t stay, didn’t try,
Got ugly and terse
Nice of me, good of you
To break it down first
Righteousness ain’t the trip
The trap is concern
Wait around for rewards
That’ll probably hurt

I vanished Friday and appeared on Sunday
Only to regain my strength and do it again
I vanished Friday and appeared on Sunday
Only to regain my strength and do it again, yeah

Yeah
Don’t expect an outpouring of interest for integrity
Don’t expect a praise parade
Let me grapple with the gratitude
Lack of faith on a rainy day, rainy day

I vanished Friday and appeared on Sunday
Only to regain my strength and do it again
I vanished Friday with the best of intentions
Only to regain my strength and do it again

I vanished Friday and appeared on Sunday
Only to regain my strength and do it again
I vanished Friday with the best of intentions
Only to regain my strength and do it again
(And do it again) do it again
(and do it again) and do it again
And do it again

somebody to love

Sunday, November 13th, 2016

We’re all hoping, we’re all hopeless
We’re all thorns and we’re all roses
We’re all looking down our noses at ourselves
We’re all flawed and we’re all perfect
We’re all lost and we’re all hurting
And just searching for somebody to love

We’re all liars, we’re all legends
We’re all tens that want elevens
We’re all trying to get to heaven, but not today
We’re all happy, we’re all hatin’
We’re all patiently impatient
And just waiting for somebody to love

We’re all good, but we ain’t angels
We all sin, but we ain’t devils
We’re all pots and we’re all kettles
But we can’t see it in ourselves
We’re all livin’ ’til we’re dying
We ain’t cool, but man, we’re trying
Just thinking we’ll be fixed by someone else

We all wrangle with religion
We all talk, but we don’t listen
We’re all starving for attention then we’ll run
We’re all paper, we’re all scissors
We’re all fightin’ with our mirrors
Scared we’ll never find somebody to love

We’re all good, but we ain’t angels
We all sin, but we ain’t devils
We’re all pots and we’re all kettles
But we can’t see it in ourselves
We’re all livin’ ’til we’re dying
We ain’t cool, but man, we’re trying
Thinking we’ll be fixed by someone else

Just tryin’ to hold it all together
We all wish our best was better
Just hopin’ that forever’s really real
We’ll miss a dime to grab a nickel
Overcomplicate the simple
We’re all little kids just looking for love
Yeah, don’t we all just want somebody to love?

the change

Wednesday, November 9th, 2016

One hand reaches out
And pulls a lost soul from harm
While a thousand more go unspoken for
And they say “what good have you done
By saving just this one?”
It’s like whispering a prayer
In the fury of a storm

And I hear them saying “you’ll never change things
And no matter what you do it’s still the same thing”
But it’s not the world that I am changing
I do this so this world will know
That it will not change me

This heart still believes
That love and mercy still exist
While all the hatreds rage
And so many say
That love is all but pointless in madness such as this
It’s like trying to stop a fire
With the moisture from a kiss

And I hear them saying “you’ll never change things
And no matter what you do it’s still the same thing”
But it’s not the world that I am changing
I do this so this world will know
That it will not change me

As long as one heart still holds on
Then hope is never really gone

I hear them saying “you’ll never change things
And no matter what you do it’s still the same thing”
But it’s not the world that I am changing
I do this so this world we know
Never changes me

What I do is so
This world will know
That it will not change me
