How Can You Know?

How can you know the depth
of my love for you Beloved?

How can you know my feelings
of passion denied me so long?

How can you fathom the abyss and
deep sorrow of our apartness?

How can you understand what’s
been stolen from my heart ‘n soul?

How can you spurn what your
heart knows to be true?

Are we then condemned to walk
the shores of a dead sea?

Questions only God can answer
of this hurt and fragile lover...

How Can You Ever Like A Theme Of Death?

no one likes this kind of theme
for no one likes winter
and autumn
and night
and dusk
and even the paleness
of skin
the kind of feeling that
you show to
a child covering his
bald head
the men and women
on pain relievers
and chemotheraphy
and radiation
they are the worst
of death's images

or the shock that goes
with it
like a flood of blood
on cemented streets
after a bomb
explosion
of the plane that crushed
where some body
parts are scattered
on trees and
grasses distant
from each other

how can you ever
dislike them?
deny them
but how can
you ever deny
them when they
are true
when soon
they will also
come and say

here is death
Now it is your
turn.

take your time
do not rush
yourself
do you really
have to cry
on a gloomy day?

How can you sleep like sleeping?

You can not ever sleep like sleeping
Only seeing in the deep and endless sky
Taking deep sigh and drinking poison
With your all arrogance and pride high
In your eyes I see the waves of the ocean
Making low and high tides with the sound
Of roaring and with a raw burning, the Pacific
Left calm less and to raise trouble ruffled
Writhing with unbearable pain heart and spleen
How can you sleep like sleeping?

When you close your eyes you see the bird
Can not fly with an arrow pierced the heart
On the ground helpless lie, when you open
Your eyes, see, pain has been washed away
By the little drops of the dew of the night.
The more unknown becomes the world,
The known face moves strange around.
From the wounds blood still dripping
How can you sleep like sleeping?

How Can You Mend A Broken Heart

I can think of younger days
When living for my life
Was everything a man could want to do?
I could never see tomorrow
But I was never told about the sorrow
And how can you mend a broken heart?
How can you stop the rain from falling down?
How can you stop the sun from shining?
What makes the world go round?
How can you mend this broken man?
How can a loser ever win?
Please help me mend my broken heart
And let me live again
I can still feel the breeze
That rustles through the trees
And misty memories do days gone by
We could never see tomorrow
No one said a word about the sorrow
And how can you mend a broken heart?
How can you stop the rain from falling down?
How can you stop the sun from shining?
What makes the world go round?
How can you mend this broken man?
How can a loser ever win?
Please help me mend my broken heart
And let me live again

How Can You Say That To Me

The air that you breathe it must be poisoned
And you're dressed up in your best disguise
And I don't want to hear what you have to say
It's there in your eyes when you look away
These beautiful words are turning into lies
Chorus:
How can you say that to me
The light that still shines is just an illusion
It's just a memory from a burned out star
Its promise has come from so far away
It's fighting through sadness and years of decay
And it's a wonder it ever made it this far
(Chorus)
After all of those secrets you let me believe
There's no rose petal air, there's just thorns when I breathe
Oh now how can you say that
It's not this silence that screams in my mind
Each day I feel like I'm falling behind
Living in shadows, still getting burned
When will I ever learn
(Chorus)
After all those secrets you let me believe
There's no rose petal air, there's just thorns when I breathe
How can you say that to me

How Can You Keep On Moving

(agnes cunningham)
(c) - (f) - (g)
(c) how can you keep on moving un (f) less you migrate (c) too
They tell ya to keep on moving but (g) migrate, you must not do
The (c) only reason for moving and the (f) reason why i (c) roam
To move to a new lo (g) cation and find myself a (c) home
I can't go back to the homestead, the shack no longer stands
They said i was uneeded, had no claim to the land
They said, "come on, get moving, it's the only thing for you"
But how can you keep moving unless you migrate too
Now if you pitch your little tent along the broad highway
The board of sanitation says, "sorry, you can't stay"
Come on, come on, get moving it's their everlasting cry
Can't stay, can't go back, can't migrate, so where the hell am i
How can you keep on moving unless you migrate too
They tell ya to keep on moving but migrate, you must not do
The only reason for moving and the reason why i roam
To move to a new location and find myself a home

How Can You Sleep?

How can you sleep, knowing that the one who Really do Loves you Feels Bad He Let You Go?

How can you sleep, knowing that the one who Really Loves you cant sleep at night?

How can you sleep, knowing that the one who Really do Loves you cant Eat Because you are no longer there?

How Can you sleep, knowing that all he wants to do is hear your voice every night before he goes to sleep?

How can you sleep, knowing that everyday all he do is long for your touch and the warmth of your Lips?

How can you sleep, knowing that your on his mind everyday, Minute, Hour, Second?

How can you sleep, knowing your his one and only, even when your not together?

How can you sleep, telling him truth about him but not being true to yourself?

How can you sleep, not telling him what you know you want him to know?

How can you sleep, knowing he put his trust in you and you let him down?

How can you know so much yet so little?

How Would You Sleep Knowing That One Day Soon Will Be The Last Day You Ever See Him Again Knowing He Did You So Good And Yet One Day You Let Him Down?

How Can You Call This A Democracy?

Media black out
Were becoming another Russia
A communist state in which speech is halted
With a government hiding their secrets.
A election campaign
And the people voting don't even know
How can you call this a democracy?

How can you bear to look at the Neva?

How can you bear to look at the Neva?
How can you bear to cross the bridges?.
Not in vain am I known as the grieving one
Since the time you appeared to me.
The black angels' wings are sharp,
Judgment Day is coming soon,
And raspberry-colored bonfires bloom,
Like roses, in the snow.

How Can You Quit?

don't tell me lies now
how can you quit
the thing that you like?

how can you quit my love
the person that you like to have?

don't tell me lies
and if you will
kiss me first and hug me tight
and put on the light
and see my body and feel my soul

and then tell me
if you want to quit
and not drink your cup of tea
this whole of me...

How Can You Trust

How can you trust the one you love?
It’s like the lies fly away like a doves
If everything you hear has been a lie
These lies make our love ready to die

I miss the days that I could trust
And to know this love isn’t just lust
I miss not having to think twice
I pray for that day, it would be nice

I use to trust you before that time
Now this love just feels like a crime

How Can You

How can you
Be with somebody else.
When all I have is a ghost in my house.
How can you
Sit at the table
And serve him
His favourite meal.
Do jigsaws and crosswords when able.
Now I can't even learn how to feel.
He steals your lips
From me.
Contentedly sips your tea.
And holds you through the night.
How can you
Now I'm out of sight.
Do you cry
To music with him.
And laugh at movies we favoured.
Does he
Keep his body in trim.
Is his breath
Always fresh mint flavoured.
Does he
Show you more affection.
Swing more in your direction.
Are his manners
Impeccable and slick.
How can you.
You make me sick.

Sonnet-How Can You See God?

How can you see God with your human eyes,
When mind keeps seeking worldly pleasures more?
How can you see God when you're worldly-wise,
And selfish, sinful, evil to the core?

How can you see God with your soul impure,
Ignoring Conscience that tells whats right?
How can you see God with heart immature,
And eyes that see but can't discern His Light?

How can you see God in all Nature's forms,
When human eyes can't see the God within?
How can you see God without Life's great storms,
with heart afilled with oft-done mortal sin?

The man with heart and soul holy sees God;
Deceiving ones will get Almighty's Rod.

How Can You Refuse Him Now

Writen and sung by hank williams
Chorus:
(e7) how can (a) you refuse him now, how can (e) you refuse him now,
How can you turn away from his (b7) side,
With (e) tears in his eyes, on the (a) cross there he (e) died,
How can you re - (b7) fuse jesus (e) now.
(e) theres a story old, that has (a) often been (e) told,
Of how our savior (b7) died, as they (e) nailed his hands,
He cried they (a) dont under - (e) stand,
As the blood flowed (b7) from his (e) side. (e7)
Repeat chorus
As he hung there on the tree, he prayed for you and me,
There was no one his pain to ease,
Be - fore he died, he faintly cried,
Father for - give them please.
Repeat chorus

How Can You Expect Me To Know?

How can you expect me,
To respect who you are,
If you have yet to reveal...
Who it is you are to me?
And you continue to let me,
Expose my feelings...
To allow them to show?

How can you expect me,
To respect who you are,
If you have yet to reveal...
Who it is you are to me?
And you continue to let me,
Expose my feelings...
To allow them to show?

How can you expect me to know to do this...
When all through our relationship,
You have been in denial mode.
How can you expect me to know?
When to me you have not let that show.
How can you expect me to know?
Do you...
Know when it shows when it does,
And,
Point that out to me to witness.

How Can You Lose What You Never Had

(words & music by weisman - wayne)
How can you lose what you never had
I tell myself when Im feeling sad
You dont have the right to cry
You believed your own lie
Its your fault because
You thought that she was yours
Think it over once, think it over twice
I wish I could take my own advice
I know I should be glad, why does it hurt so bad
How can you lose what you never had
You dont have the right to cry
You believed your own lie
Its your fault because
You thought that she was yours
Think it over once, think it over twice
I wish I could take my own advice
I know I should be glad, why does it hurt so bad
How can you lose what you never had
How can you lose what you never had

How can you do this to me

All these images in my head drive me over the mental edge. How did you do this to me?
I opened up completely and let you in, loved you all the way, and then you pulled away.
Why did you do this to me? I could read your mind, and I felt your soul, but I never saw that demon hiding in the shadow. I walked into the trap with no guard up, and now I can’t get up from your heavy blow.

I can’t find any relief from the bottle, or other women, nothing will take away this pain.
It’s the baggage you’ve left with me. Tell me why did you do this to me?

I wish you would scream at me. I wish you would hit me, but in the end I wish you’d tell me you love me.
Walk away, run from me, and talk about me, but in the end come back to me.

Life doesn’t seem so interesting anymore, and everyone has become a bore. That light has faded once again and I’ve let you have the control over me. So once again I ask how can you do this to me?

How Could You

How can you talk about cheating
If that is how you live your life,
And how can you talk against lying
If all you did and taught was how to lie,
How can you talk about morality
When you have used so many men,
And how can you talk about honesty
If you have stole before, and once again,
How can you talk about your loyalty
When you talk behind everyone's back,
Even the ones who loved and cared for you
Whom you falsely judge, then accuse and attack.
How can you talk about being a good mother
When you leave your Children all alone,
And how can you be a good roll model for anyone
If your always in a different mans home.
How can you talk about God and religion
When you believe God himself doesn't exist
And how can you think people care for you
When you they will scratch off of their list.
I wander how a person just like you
Could really live with their soul and them self,
With the problems you have and the sins you know
While always blaming it on your Mother or anyone else,
But as the hours will come and the days will go
And as for myself I am happy with what I say and do
And in the times you enter my thoughts and mind,
I wall always say and think, “ How Could You.”

Randy L. McClave
