I Am The Only One With THESE Keys

The first question I would ask,
Of anyone expressing a wish to drive...
Through life without dues to pay.
With only desire in their eyes.
And a request from me to give them my keys,
Is this...
What makes anyone think I will turn over keys,
To something I have earned...
Because the doing of it I have made to look easy?

I've got to witness some sweat with labor done first.
With initiative that has been prioritized.
Life is not a cakewalk...
To choose what frosting to taste to then decide.

'You are not the only one with keys.'

That's true.
But guess what?
I am the only one with THESE keys.

The Only Way I Know

In a world where love is found and
lost so easily
I'm so thankful I share my life with you
All around you hear the sound of
faithless poetry
Oh, I won't lie
That's something I won't do
There must be a million words
To whisper soft and low
There must be a million ways
I could let this feeling show
But loving you with all my heart
And never letting go
That's the only way
The only way I know
Maybe I will never say everything I feel
Even so, you'll always know the truth
In the silence of a touch every word is real
As long as I live
That's what I'll give to you
There must be a million words
To whisper soft and low
There must be a million ways
I could let this feeling show
But loving you with all my heart
And never letting go
That's the only way
The only way I know
That's the only way
The only way I know

You're Not The Only One

(r palmer)
You're not the only one who feels so funky
You're not the only one that's out of work
You're not the only one that got a bum deal
You're not the only one on planet earth
Man you got it lucky more than most
You don't know when you're well off
You got no room to complain
Quit your moanin, we're all in the same boat
Your excuse is wearin' thin, you got no one else to blame
You're tellin' me
You're not the only one gettin' busted
You're not the only one with income tax
You're not the only one who fels corrupted
You're not the only one that can't relax
Count your blessings, not your income tax
You're not the only one whose paying uncle sam
Quit yoyr dumb complaining, take it back
I got news for you, pull up your socks
And get with the programme
You're not the only one with a disfunction
You're not the only one that's got the past
You're not the only one with no compunctions
You're not the only one that's strapped for cash
No room to survive
Man you got it lucky more than most
You don't know when you're well off
You got no room to complain
Quit your moanin, we're all in the same boat
Your excuse is wearin' thin, you got hell to pay
You're not the only one who feels so funky
You're not the only one, come on that's out of work
You're not the only one that got a bum deal
You're not the only one on planet earth

The Only Love

I can relate
The story of my life
No brighter hope
No stronger emotion
I believed I could die over you
How you could ever
Break down and never see me through
Through my darkest night

And as I lie awake
One prayer within me burning
And there's no price on what you hold
Till it's gone
And it keeps moving on

(CHORUS)
Where is my heart
You know I will be waiting to be
A part of you
You'll never feel the pain
How can you say to me
That I should go on living
I left the only life I had with you
The only love
No use in me pretending to be
A part of you
And you the heart of me
How can you say to me
That I should go on living
I left the only life I had with you

So we agree
To let each other go
No long goodbye
Just your way and my way
And I can stand how you cried to be free
High as the wind blows
But not enough to bring you home to me
And only lonely knows

You see my open arms
You know my flame is burning
But I'm too blind to see the end has begun
And it keeps movin' on

(CHORUS)
The only love
No use in me pretending to be
A part of you
And you the heart of me
How can you say to me
That I should go on living
I left the only life I had with you

The only love
One love that will not die
I may sorry that I built my
World around you
The only love
Is only you and I
There will be others who would
Leave you as I found you

(REPEAT)

The Only One

Hold up, you're moving to fast
I'm up, for something that lasts
I ain't looking to screw on the first night
Cause that's a no go
And if the vibe's good
Go to first base
Cause the first kiss
Could be your last taste
I ain't looking to screw until the vibe's right
See I'm
The only one you know
That can put you on cruise control
Yeah, the only one you'll find
That won't waste all my time
On nothin
Nothin
On nothin
Nothin
My will is stronger than most
I will not let you get close
Until I think that you deserve me
Cause that's a no go
I'm gonna hold out
So in the meantime
Don't expect much
From a strong mind
Until I think that you deserve me
See I'm
The only one you know
That can put you on cruise control
Yeah, the only one you'll find
That won't waste all my time
I'm holding out
I'm gonna wait
Wonna make it past the first date
A little time
That we can do
All the nasty things you wanna do
Don't get me wrong
Just take my hand
And I really hope you understand
That it's easier when every second counts
So we'll just have to wait
It's really no big deal
It's really no big deal
I'd hate to get you in bed
Find out your empty instead
No need to knock another home run out
Cause that's a no go
And I'd hate to be so filthy
If we were not meant to be
No need to knock another home run out
See I'm
The only one you know
That can put you on cruise control
Yeah, the only one you'll find
That won't waste all my time
On nothing
Nothin
On nothin
Nothin
ON NOTHIN
ON NOTHIN

The Dream That I Keep Dreaming

You are the dream that I keep dreaming
A grand castle upon the sand
A white knight standing beside me 
With Tiffany upon my hand 

You are the dream that I keep dreaming
A love I've only known
With open arms you invite me
To a place you've yet to show

You are the dream that I keep dreaming
You are mine and mine alone
Im your wife you love me dearly
To me you always come home

You are the dream that I keep dreaming 
Don't wake me from my dream
Let me stay lost in my reality
Where nothing's as it seems

The Only Daddy That'll Walk The Line (live)

Everybody knows you been steppin' on my toes
And I'm gettin pretty tired of it
Keep steppin' outta line and messin' with my mind
If you had any sense, you'd quit
But ever since you were just a little bitty girl
Since I was the only man in this whole world
Now you better do some thinking then you'll find
You got the only daddy that'll walk the line
I keep workin' everyday, all you wanna do is play
I'm sick of stayin' out all night
You've been coming unglued from your funny little moods
So, honey-baby, that ain't right
'Cause ever since you were just a little bitty girl
Since I was the only man in this whole world
Now you better do some thinking then you'll find
You got the only daddy that'll walk the line
Everybody knows you been steppin' on my toes
And still just puttin' me on
When I start-a-walkin', don't I hear you start-a-squawkin'
Beggin' me to come back home
'Cause ever since you were just a little bitty girl
Since I was the only man in this whole world
Now you better do some thinking then you'll find
You got the only daddy that'll walk the line

The Only One That Will Be Resented

If the reality of truth is kept from someone,
And eventually they are confronted with it.
The only one that will be resented,
Is the one who came...
To offer a solution to their delusions.
That's the one that will be defamed.

The Only Words That Remain

blast furnace...
molded by turmoil
and endless struggle,

faces scorched by the trials,
endured and survived....
stripped naked, no baggage,

no need for guile.
the all of all on the altar,
the heart beaten honest....

and the only words that remain.....
...............are soul!

The Only Dreams I Have In Writing Now Are Poems

THE ONLY DREAMS I HAVE IN WRITING NOW ARE POEMS

The only dreams I have in writing now are poems
Poems and more poems-
I write them in the morning and in the evening
At all times of day
Whenever I can make them come to me
They calm me and make me rest
They bring a sense that I am still alive
They justify me an amuse me
They give me hope
The only dreams I have now are poems
And poems keep me alive
As long as they can.

Only God Knows How That Goes

You need not know,
What it is I am thinking.
You need not know.

You need not know
What keeps me from sinking.
You need not know.

You need not know,
The weight on my shoulders...
Or the burdens of my load.
Or where I go,
To unravel my sack...
Off my back.
Or what it takes to keep me on track.

My burdens lift with quick assistance.
Only God knows how that goes.
Only God knows that's a fact.
God and I both know I am grateful for that.

The only picture that I see

This morning I am waiting
on the light
to start the day
and thinking about something
to say to you
by electronic mail.

I am looking in and out
and seeing things in myself
as if I exist out of my body

and outside the two dogs
are walking up and down
the lawn
as if inspecting new flowers
blooming in the early morning
and they are sniffing
at geraniums and morning glories
which are growing wild.

The two cats are stretching out
on the bark of the fallen tree
ripping their nails into it
and trying to catch
the first rays of the sun

and still my life is empty
while you are away from me
and that’s the only picture that I see.

The Only Thing That Matters

When I thought I had it
all figured out,
You came along and looked at me
and along came the doubt.
No more easy feeling was with me anymore,
No more quiet sleeping like I did before
I questioned my sanity
and even my vanity.
But no, there was much more to it than that.
There was something so real
that you made me feel
and all that came before you,
I left behind.

No ifs or whys
are important to me now.
The only thing that matters
is you somehow.
No laughs or cries
can change what's here.
The only thing that matters
is having you near.

The biggest thing I left behind
were my days without you.
They're long forgotten.
For me there's only you.

The Only One For Me

You just happen to be
the only one for me.
And even though I never knew it
up until now,
it's confusing to me
and makes me wonder how
so many years that I've been given
I missed out on so much livin'.

But love is magic
and the magic takes you
to where you belong.
Yeah, love is magic.
It reaches out to you
just like a song.

The years that flew when I never knew
are all the years that I lost.
But it's okay now 'cause I know somehow
that all those roads that I crossed
have led me back to you.

You just happen to be
the only one for me.
And even though I know it
I'm not allowed to show it
So I keep you locked inside my heart
and the magic won't let it ever depart.
'Cause you just happen to be
the only one, the one for me.

You Are the Only Song

If I could kiss
Your gorgeous mouth
In the sunlight
Beside roses climbing
Fences to find us,
My heart would burst
With unimaginable joy
And resound like a symphony,
I know Mozart would smile.

Around the corner from the liquor store
In this depressed city,
There is a small pawn shop
With a diamond necklace
That belongs on your goddess-like throat;
I will trade in my best guitar
To buy it for you
Because you are the only song
I want to hear.

Beyond this affection,
The world ceases to exist for me;
You are the dreams
That softly fall from the moonlight,
The stars dance over the hillside
When they see you walking
Barefoot in the night;
Summer has brought you into my life,
I will bathe in your light
And invoke all the ancient deities
To keep you shining by my side.

The Times We Now Live That Takes Away Breaths

In the disarray of these days we now face,
I keep my concentration focused upon my deeds.
And less upon comments made by others,
About me...
My deeds.
And what beliefs about me they whisper,
To others giving them time to listen.

I could only wish people like that...
A less traumatic awakening.
Since I seek the company,
Of those few who are awake.

To mature AND awaken to accept,
The times we now live that takes away breaths...
In a neck breaking speed,
Is here.
And so blessed is the feeling,
To have one's peace of mind intact!
That's a fact!

And 'that' takes a long time in development.
It comes with experiencing life and not rehearsing it...
As some would think.
Or kept practiced as if to impress.
As some still do!

Life is much too precious to accept foolishness.
And that is...
But just one of the many of the many many lessons...
I have had to learn.

The Only Thing That Looks Good On Me Is You

I don't look good in no Armani Suits
No Gucci shoes - or designer boots
I've tried the latest lines from A to Z
But there's just one thing that looks good on me

Chorus

The only thing I want
The only thing I need
The only thing I choose
The only thing that looks good on me...is you

I'm not satisfied with Versace style
Put those patent leather pants - in the circular file
Sometimes I think - I might be lookin' good
But there's only one thing that fits me like it should

Chorus

The only thing I want
The only thing I need
The only thing I choose
The only thing that looks good on me...is you

Ya it's you - it could only be you
Nobody else will ever do
Ya baby it's you - that I stick to
Ya we stick like glue

Chorus

The only thing I want
The only thing I need
The only thing I choose
The only thing that looks good on me...is you

Am I The Only Thing That Youve Done Wrong

(billy joe faster/lee ann womack/jason sellers)
Youre the life of the party
You stand out in a crowd
When I think of all the things youve done
It always makes me proud
But tonight Im feeling empty
It seems Im always here alone
Am I the only thing youve done wrong
Am I the only one that youve forgotten on the way
To gain the world and lose our love
Is to high a price to pay
In your long line of successes
Tell me where do I belong
Am I the only thing youve done wrong
You got another big promotion
Youre the best man on the crew
When you set your mind on something
Theres nothing you cant do
This house you built is perfect
Were the envy of the town
But lord its lonley here when youre not around


Am I the only one that youve forgotten on the way
To gain the world and lose our love
Is to high a price to pay
In your long line of successes
Tell me where do I belong
Am I the only thing youve done wrong
Oh am I the only thing youve done wrong
