Remember This Could Happen To You

As I sit here homeless do you really care?
What exactly is it you see,
Try looking deeper as you stop and stare,
There's a person inside, yes it's me.

Are you perfect, have you never done wrong,
To judge others what gives you the right,
To get to where I am doesn't take long,
Look in the mirror you may well get a fright.

Get a job you bastard you're a layabout,
That's just one of the comments made,
I am hurt deep inside when people shout,
It reminds me that I m alone and afraid.

Do you know my reasons for being this way?
If you could would you let me explain,
Or would you tell me the message I convey,
Is I'm nothing but a down and out pain.

Are you aware of my history I bet you're not?
To you I'm a waste of space,
A junkie or alkie who makes you feel fraught,
I'm just a total and utter disgrace.

If you'd just take some time to give me a chance,
Maybe just maybe you'd learn,
If into my history you would just take a glance,
I believe you may then show concern.

I could be your daughter or perhaps your son,
Now don't be self-righteous and say no,
We all have parents when all's said and done,
Through my choices I've now nowhere to go.

Do I have children, a husband or wife?
Or have I always been in this state?
Ask and I'll tell you what caused me this strife,
Ignorance is what I really hate.

One thing in life you must never forget,
It's so easy to fall over that line,
Before you know it life is filled with regret,
Then your mind slips into decline.

In life we judge others without knowing the facts,
Who measures failure and what is success,
Circumstances and decisions are the ultimate acts,
They determine if life's good or a mess.

Next time you walk past me don't be all seeing,
The way you judge me may well not be true,
All I ask is you treat me as a Human Being,

‘' Remember This Could Happen To You ‘'

It Could Happen To You

Guard your dreams at night
Lock your heart up tight
It could happen to you
Don't count stars
Or you may stumble
Someone drops a sigh
And down you tumble
Keep an eye on spring
It could happen to you
All I did was wonder
How your arms would be
And it happened to me

Nothing I Could Say

I remember the first time,
I confronted someone...
Reacting to a rumor.
And from a third person heard.

I shouted obscenities,
In the face of this person.
Only to discover...
The rumor I heard,
Had been about another.

Years has passed.
And I have seen again,
That person I offended.
And with friends that person said to me...
'Are you still that fool I remembered?
And are you still as ignorant,
As you impressed me first to be? '

There was nothing I could say.
I had learned to keep my mouth shut.
And from those wishing to start confrontations...
I don't acknowledge this.
I simply walk away.

Growing older to wisen up,
Has its benefits.

You Could Be the One

Did you say you had to leave
Can you stay the night with me
Is that the way it has to be
How I hate to see you go
But it's OK
Because I know

(chorus)

You could be the one
I waited for
You could be the one
That opens up the door
You could be the one
I run to
You could
Be the one
You could be the one
To share my nights
You could be the one
That brightnes-up my life
You could be the one
I run to
You could be the one

Every night I wish upon a star
Only wanna be with you
I just wanna be
Everywhere you are
My body's callin' out your name
Girl tell me that you feel the same

(chorus)

I waited like forever
Thought I'd find you never
I just might be done
Think I found the one

(chorus out)

My Last Heart Beat

My heart is throbbing
From the pain in my side
You would think that
Nothing bad could happen
Until it does
I tried to fight
But I lost
I'm having a hard time breathing now
I feel like there is no tomorrow
The funny part is
I tried to fight for something
That I knew was worthless
But it mattered to me
So I stood up for it
But I ended up losing everything
I lost my friends and family
And much more
I will never graduate from high school
Because I stood up for something
That I believed in
The mayor did nothing to stop them from hurting me
Now I'm in the hospital
Because no one tried to stop them
People just watched and laughed
I thought my friends would stick up for me
But I guess they weren't my real friends
Cause if they were
They would of stood up with me
But they didn't
I'm hurting inside as much on the outside

My Pain

Pain is the greatest emotion
Far beyond equal to all water in the ocean
Taken it in a bottle, you get one potion
I tasted it
The Pain, is crushing my bones
The Pain, is tearing apart my love
I thought I could handle it and take it on my shoulders.
But pain never got any holder.
This pain i got
It's like a straight highway to hell
This pain is even greater than the time the fallen angle fell
I tasted it
This Pain, is stretching my veins
This Pain, is causing me to hate
This pain feels ridiculously strong
Especially now that I'm all alone
All the sorrow caused in one moment
I didn't know it could happen in one movement
This pain is eating me from the inside
But Then I woke up and realized
That this pain erased all my fears
But why do i still see your eyes full of tears
And i understand there is some pain that will never go away
The pain when we split our way.

You and I...Could Give Love One More Try

How many wrongs have you known before?
How many times have you said,
No more to love.
And it was love you needed?

How many wrongs have you known before?
How many times have you said,
No more to love.
And it was love you needed?

I've been there myself as well.
I have said to 'go to hell' and cried!
Inside I knew I lied.
I wanted to die!

How many wrongs have you known before?
How many lies had you heard...
Before the door you opened closed,
And you stood there to pace the floor.
Feeling never you would ever trust again?
I have been there before.
And will again,
I'm sure.
Since I know I understand your heart!

How many wrongs have you known before?
How many times have you said,
No more to love.
And it was love you needed?

I've been there myself as well.
I have said to 'go to hell' and cried!
Inside I knew I lied.
I wanted to die!
But you and I...
Could give love,
One more try!

It Could Only Mean One Thing

My mission is to excite.
Not to bore as if that was my expertise.
Reaching to innovate and create new approaches,
To observations is what I seek to do.

That one could addendum what has been done,
For some is a preference.
And is a preference someone else dictates,
Really a 'preference' one independently makes?
Or is it just easier to accept to later throw away?

My mission is to excite.
Not to bore as if that was my expertise.
Reaching to innovate and create new approaches,
To observations is what I seek to do.

And if it seems I intentionally attempt to attract attention...
Well...
I'll put it this way,
If one is doing what one wishes to do...
And if this should attract attention?
It could only mean one thing.
Some find it difficult to do what it is they choose,
Without getting approval or feeling accepted.

And...
Well,
A seeking of acceptance hasn't done a thing to improve...
The quality of life that has been devalued as 'approved'.

Y..... Don't touch it

Have you seen a fire?
I mean a big one with high flames?
Any human touching it
Will suffer intense and lasting pains

Such is the law of nature
Nothing else could happen or be
Touching flames causes pains
Isn 't that easy to see?

Hatred is also like fire
It burns upon every touch
Pain is intense and lasting
Excruciating destruction, so much

Such is the law of nature
Nothing else could happen or be
Touching hatred causes pain
It is not difficult to see

And so is also anger
A blaze of uncontrolled heat
You touch it and bad burns
Are the only outcome to meet

Such is the law of nature
Nothing else could happen or be
Touching anger causes pain
It is not difficult to see

Lies of any nature or kind
Like smouldering ashes so hot
Touch lies and you suffer
Lies may seem ok but they're not

Such is the law of nature
Nothing else could happen or be
Touching lies causes pain
It may not be easy to see

Honesty love and kindness
Are like a cool breeze on a hot day
My boys, these laws of nature
Are here forever to stay

This Could Be The One

Ive been alone since I dont know when, and I dont need another lover
I just dont know if I could follow again, its been gettin me down
And I never dreamt we could be, something happened and I cant walk away
How could I know Id get in too deep, Im not fooling around
Hey baby, Im scared of letting it out
Ooh, this could be the one
Ooh, this could be the one, Im not fooling around
Wherever I go, I think of you, I cant believe what I am feeling
And how could I know Id be losing sleep, Im not fooling around
Hey baby, we need time to figure this out
Ooh, this could be the one - the one that Ive been waiting for
Ooh, this could be the one - and Im not fooling around
I worry if we get too close, you kick my heart around
If love is what you need the most, dont tear my feelings down
(solo)
Hey baby, Ive been hurt before, hey, hey baby, this time Ive got to be sure
Ooh, this could be the one - that Ive been waiting for
Ooh, this could be the one - the one Ive been waiting for
Ooh, this could be the one - this could be, this could be the one
Ooh, this could be the one - the one that Ive been waiting for...

Talking Optimistic Blues

Written by: neil diamond and gretchen peters
I got worries by the ton
Getting kansas only one
Over taxed and alimony
Tired of eating fried baloney
I got burdens on my shoulders
Dying young and growing older
There's some brain cells i'm missing
But despite it all, i'd like to say
I'm gonna have a good day today
Gonna have a good time anyway
Put it all behind me, lay it all away
Gonna be a good day today
Bills and pills and former wives
Past estates and former lives
Bank account is overdrawn
Had a ??? and hairline's gone
Hearing voices in my head
Saying i should have stayed in bed
Doc just died but what the heck
Nothing worse can happen anyway
So i'm gonna have a good day today
Me, i'm gonna have a good time anyway
Put it all behind me, lay it all away
Gonna be a good day today
Pulled my back and wrecked my car
Girlfriend stole my vcr
Letter came from sixty minutes
Saying they wanna put me in it
Tell me my career just died
Years ago i might have cried
Now i'm just too old to do it
Maybe true but screw it anyway
Me, i'm gonna have a good day today
And i'm gonna have a good time anyway
Put it all behind me, lay it all away
Gonna be a good day today
Hey i'm gonna have a good day today
Me, i'm gonna have a good time anyway
Put it all behind me, lay it all away
Gonna be a good day today

Talking Optimist Blues

Words and Music by Neil Diamond and Gretchen Peters
I got worries by the ton; gettin' cancer's only one.
Overtaxed and alimonied, tired of eatin' fried baloney.
I got burdens on my shoulders, dying young or growin' older.
There's some brain cells I'm missin',
but despite it all, I'd like to say--
I'm gonna have a good day today.
Gonna have a good time anyway.
Put it all behind me, lay it all away.
Gonna be a good day today.
Bills and pills and former wives,
past mistakes and former lives.
Bank account is overdrawn,
out of Prozac, hairline's gone.
Hearing voices in my head;
say I should've stayed in bed.
Dog just died, but what the heck;
nothing worse can happen anyway.
So, I'm gonna have a good day today.
Me, I'm gonna have a good time anyway.
Put it all behind me, lay it all away.
Gonna be a good day today.
Pulled my back and wrecked my car.
Girl-friend stole my V.C.R.
Letter came from Sixty Minutes;
say they wanna put me in it.
Tell me my career just died.
Years ago I might've cried.
Now I'm just too old to do it.
May be true, but screw it anyway.
Me, I'm gonna have a good day today.
And I'm gonna have a good time anyway.
Put it all behind me, lay it all away.
Gonna be a good day today.
Hey, I'm gonna have a good day today.
Me, I'm gonna have a good time anyway.
Put it all behind me, lay it all away.
Gonna be a good day today.

It is often better to have a great deal of harm happen to one than a little; a great deal may rouse you to remove what a little will only accustom you to endure.

In a School Chapel

THE clear young voices rise and soar: 'Oh, pray
Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they
Shall prosper that love thee.' Yet each boy's heart
Harbors the hope that he may have a part
In war- the roar of guns, the roll of drums ­
Before this anthemed peace he prays for comes.
But in the quiet gallery above
Where eyes grown dim look down on those they love
The prayer for peace rings true; although in truth
Worse things than death can come to eager youth.
But nothing worse can come to age than knowing
That it is safe, and boys are going, going,
Are going forth to war till all wars cease:
The old, so safe and lonely, pray for peace.

Once Strangers

We were once strangers
Strangers that went to school together
Which lead to a class together
It was nothing special at first
I brought winterfresh gum for you everyday
It use to be your favorite gm
Last period use to be my favorite time
Especially on Tuesday's
You always had a new story
A story that was about your life
Everyday you where there nothing bad could happen
Soon school ended and you went to Waterbury
Once in awhile you would come back to Torrington
However I still called you everyday
10th grade came by and you weren't there
Had to go through 10th and 11th be myself
You came back for 12th grade
I was the happiest person in the world
I had my best friend back
Now you've graduated and moving on
I however went backwards
Didn't listen to what you would say
Now I have to watch you go off to college
I couldn't be happier for you
I wish you the best of luck
I know you will go far.

Absolute Beginners

Ive nothing much to offer
Theres nothing much to take
Im an absolute beginner
And Im absolutely sane
As long as were together
The rest can go to hell
I absolutely love you
But were absolute beginners
With eyes completely open
But nervous all the same
If our love song
Could fly over mountains
Could laugh at the ocean/sail over heartaches second time
Just like the films
Theres no reason
To feel all the hard times
To lay down the hard lines
Its absolutely true
Nothing much could happen
Nothing we cant shake
Oh were absolute beginners
With nothing much at stake
As long as youre still smiling
Theres nothing more I need
I absolutely love you
But were absolute beginners
But if my love is your love
Were certain to succeed
If our love song
Could fly over mountains
Could laugh at the ocean/sail over heartaches second time
Just like the films
Theres no reason
To feel all the hard times
To lay down the hard lines
Its absolutely true

Bomb Threat

sitting in class
baking some food
when we were told
to leave the school

we had to go
on to the track
away from the school
and to not look back

a bomb threat was called
into the school
who would do this
they must be a fool

they searched the school
with stomachs in knots
while we watched anxiously
as it started getting hot

they thought they found it
behind the bleachers
but it was a false alarm
according to the teachers

a lot of the students
are scared to go back
they didn't even want
to leave the track

now that we're in
all still shaking
thinking to ourselves
if they were mistaking

what if it was real
and it happens again
the school would blow up
and that'd be the end

now it's the next day
students still in a roar
about the bomb threat
that opened the door

it made us realize
that the worse could happen
even in a small town
just like Washington

even small towns
can cause a big scandal
just remember not to panic
so you can handle.
