The Long Strange Trip


Am I coming or going?
How long will this strange trip last?
rules continually changing
Tomorrows landscape will be the past

I see the masses, Hurry-Scurry
desperate to keep up
Others accepting bravely,
every beautiful, inevitable, disaster
of what is to be, wash up

To be clear, I implore you,
to fight and do not settle
for there is justice on the horizon
and landslides start with just a pebble

I say follow your life's River
to the ocean of unknown
your Stardust just a glimmer
of the greatness you have known

Me, I've danced naked in the moonlight
reveled the rise of morning suns
I've loved one and no other
& found out she's not the one

looked for truth within a bottle
left em empty, filled with pain
felt faith within a world
full of religion & disdain

I've been given this life
though, it's given more to me
From the beginning, to the end
Love, Friends & Family

So, know as time is passing
I left with laughter in my heart
a buzz within my belly
and a song within my art

Go Anywhere, Be Anything, You're Free



Go Anywhere, Be Anything, You’re Free!
(feat. Mariel Andrew)


Got tired, felt restless… & ran for the door
Crying, “I just can’t be tied down”
Saw nothing but Blue Skies around

I reach for the stars, crash land in the clouds,
There’s nothing but blue skies around…
Don’t know if I’m up or I’m down…


But, I’m Free…


To the furthest corner’s of this big blue rock…
Go Anywhere, Be Anything, You’re Free!
Go Anywhere, Be Anything, You’re Free!

The world is your oyster, what God gave us choice for
Go Anywhere, Be Anything, You’re Free!
Go Anywhere, Be Anything, You’re Free!


You’re Free…


And Dream…
…Don’t forget to dream…

Waltz (in Cm)




I'm writing a letter
it's the 9th of November
I'm pouring my heart out
in cursive, in ink

there's no use in fighting
the words i'm reciting
because there's nothing left
i'm a shell of a man

you left
irrelevance, commotion
my last breath
before I drown in a sea of your

la da da da da da da da da da 

I'm light as a feather
floating towards forever
there's no use in fighting
what is or will be

a story worth telling
a presence compelling
a mistress in bed
with a song in her heart

you left
irrelevance, commotion
my last breath
before I drown in a sea of your

la da da da da da da da da da

You Will Always Have My Heart



I looked up at the sky today
There were grey clouds in the way
But, I saw the sun breaking through

You were the first thought on my mind
& Though we weren’t happy all of the time
I’d take twice the bad, for all your good

Do you remember back a while
When I used to make you smile
It was so easy to be in love

Though it’s different now I know
I still sing songs to let you know
You Will Always Have My Heart

...

So if you give me a second chance
Decide I’m worthy to be your man
I’ll make an honest woman of you

& if you choose the open road
In with the new, out with the old
Than I wish you nothing but pure joy

Do you remember back a while
When I used to make you smile
It was so easy to be in love

Though it’s different now I know
I still sing songs to let you know
You Will Always Have My Heart

Live Right



Like a Waves Unrest
Like her Black Silk Dress
Like an Old Silent Movie
Like Living at its Best

I've got a New Leaf Turning
I've got a Bright Sunrise
I get an Overwhelming Feeling
When I Look in Her Eyes

&

I've Got to Live it Right (x4)


I was Running from the Feeling
Chasing Neon through the Night
Painting Mirrors on the Ceiling
But, I Never got it right

There's an answer to the riddle...
just hold the light up to it right
Life is in the moment
Live the moment, live it right


&
I've Got to Live it Right (x4)


I find myself thinking
where do we go from here?
in all this lost indecision
...well, I guess I'll stay right here
but, my mind keeps running
always finding something new to fear
feeling sorry for myself
reaching for another beer
saying, why god why?
staring blankly at the wall
drinking whiskey in the morning
waiting for my curtain call
I don't know why I fight...
to turn around this life
but, I know where truth lies
I've Got to Live it Right

Love

To lose in love, is to, simply, not
Throw your hat in the ring, give love a shot
For if you run the race, you've surely won
Live your life as if it's your only one

If it's pure & true, it's love you've got
If you feel unsure, it's probably not
In love, your heart will smile & sing
And it's free, of course... don't cost a thing

But, love can crush you, leave you angry & cold,
Lonely & tired, bitter & old
For the weight of the world, is nothing at all
Compared to the heart, that lost love recalls

However, in life, we're gifted with choice
And if you choose love, in life you'll rejoice
