I had a long conversation with Steve Carlton. He told me that on the days he pitched, he felt it was his responsibility to make everyone around him better, to lift his teammates. That's what I try to do.

Long Conversation With God....

i had a long conversation with god...
and asked a lot of questions.
i looked up to see the setting sun,
embracing the mountains and the trees.
and somehow i knew...
there's a bowl for every hunger.
and night itself is a blanket,
even the moon kisses good night.
what i dont know is not important,
what i am wears no mask.
and the sound of the wind in the trees,
answers what i dont know to ask!

A conversation with Minette

My dear, destiny has separated us
and my life goes on without meaning
and you are at another place, far away from me.

I am seasons and a lifetime gone from you,
but still forever bonded to you
and although I am another person, you are still stay part of me

and in the evenings you are near
when I lift my eyes to the stars.
My dear, destiny has separated us

and only in my dreams my life seems real
when you are like a flower with me,
and I am not blinded by the day’s bright rays,

while I find new meaning,
I feel you material as a human being, when you stand next to me
and you are at another place, far away from me

at a place of which I do not know the extent
caught in the clutches of death
when you are like a flower with me

and sometimes I wish that you would stay with me
that you do not disappear with the morning light.
My dear, destiny has separated us

as if human life always hangs in the balance,
as if man is forever extradited to a Godly decision
caught in the clutches of death,

we life on, immoral or sincere
until death devours us
and although I am another person, you are still stay part of me

I am not able to loose your spirit, your humanity
but still feel your love reaching out too me.
As if man is forever extradited to a Godly decision

life passes much too quickly
even when you bring your hands together in prayer.
My dear, destiny has separated us
and you are at another place, far away from me,

but its still as if your bright blue eyes look at me.
Now I am seasons and a lifetime gone from you,
but still feel your love reaching out to me
and although I am another person, you still stay part of me.

Leaving This to Get With That Is What's Up

This is what's up.
If others you meet are treated with respect...
They are given every reason,
To return a similar deed.

If on the other hand...
Familiarity causes one to loosen lips,
As if a sailor disgusted with chores on a ship...
This behavior is not headed towards,
A long lasting and beneficial relationship.
The ending anyone can predict!

And questioning the reason 'why' there is a split?
Someone unconscious just didn't get it.
And leaving this to get with that,
Is what's up...for those who have had enough!

That's What Happens When Truth Is Spoken

Truth hurts!
That's why the presence of it,
Is scandalized, falsified, denied and fantasized.
Criticized and spat upon and treated like crap!

'You are 'still' talking about truth...
Right?
I just want this conversation to maintain its focus.'

Of course I am 'still' talking about truth.
And that's the tragedy of it!
Even when it is mentioned people want to stop it.
They want to disrupt it with a show of disrespect.
To prove they can throw it indignities.
And to leave it as if that is accepted.

Well...
I say NO to that!
It is NOT accepted!

'You are 'still' talking about truth...
Right?
I just want this conversation to maintain its focus.'

You aren't paying me any attention are you?
That's what happens when truth is spoken!

And That's What It's Like With You, My Love

Whenever you touch me sweet, my love
i feel the rapid beat of my pulse
like a thousand drums pounding,
fast and hard through my marrrow -
such hard, percussed sonority.
And, whenever we move to the dance of love,
we're like two celestial violins
with bows freshly rosined -
rubbing, pulling with bare moist heat,
complimenting each other with favour,
to the arousing rhythm and pleasure
of loves' perfect movement.

And when we perform together,
in dual concert, dominating exchange -
solos encounter like soliloquies
of sensual deliverance.
And the Rush of this titillation
is like the bursting of cymbals.....in climax,
exuberant release...euphoria, and -
flushed and wet,
you strike a match;
i quit years ago,
but the spiraling trail of smoke, white
rising over brass and satin
reminds me of the encores yet to come...
ne plus ultra!

And that's what it's like with you, my love,
that's how it feels when you touch me sweet.

That's What A Growing Does

Long before I met you,
I was introduced to myself first.
And that meeting took awhile,
Before I felt a clarity.

With a clarity noticed I wanted to know.
And to let go of that which I did not need.

Now with clarity and identity intact,
I can understand...
Why today you say I've changed.
I have learned that's what a growing does.

And I hope that growth continues to show.
With a letting go of that which my mind does not feed.

There! Because That Is What People Naturally Do

On what scale can one rate hatred.
To what temperature can heat rise...
From those despising themselves and others?

How long can tolerance be expected to prevail?
To calm those tensions with attempts,
That a peacefulness...
Will ease the minds of those who vent.

On what graph can an explanation,
Describe one's pain?
In what debates...
Can a surprising happiness,
Be concluded as shown on one's face.

Will those times ever return,
When it becomes apparent...
Lessons have been learned?
And respect that is given,
Isn't stubbornly expected to be earned.
But is there!
Because that is what people naturally do!

That's What Friends Are For

And I never thought I'd feel this way
And as far as I'm concerned
I'm glad I got the chance to say
That I do believe I love you
And if I should ever go away
Well just close your eyes and try
To feel the way we do today
And then if you can remember...
(Chorus)
Keep smiling, keep shining
Knowing you can always count on me for sure
That's what friends are for
For good times, and bad times
I'll be on your side forevermore
That's what friends are for
Well you came and opened me
And now there's so much more I see
And so by the way I thank you...oh
And then for the times when we're apart
Well then close your eyes and know
These words are coming from my heart
And if you can remember...oh
(Chorus 2x)

That's what causing problems in our world

That's what causing problems in our world
people without the moral on the board

I wish there was a university with moral degree
everybody has to have it from the boss to employee

All they teach our children is profit and more profit
do it even you have to legally or ilegally cheat

Use your knowledge to make money
you deserve to be rich, hell with everybody

So what if we have so many professionals graduate from best university
If they are insensitive to the poverty and enviromental problems in our society

We human like to blame problems on everybody around us
Even though we are part of the problems, so stop making so much fuss

A university degree without moral back up graduates a monster
who goes to the society and rub the people like a gangster

That's What I Like About You

(Larry Alderman/Richard Fagan)
I like to see you in your cotton dress
Early in the morning with your hair all a mess
Oh baby, that's what I like about you
I like the funny way you wrinkle your nose
I like the color that you paint your toes
Oh honey, that's what I like about you
Chorus
And you know that I love you
I'm so proud to be your man
And I love the way you love me too
Just the way I am, that's what I like about you
It's funny honey, but I swear it's true
I love every crazy little thing you do
Oh darlin', that's what I like about you
I like it when you start to sing along
And you got nothin' but the radio on
Oh mercy, that's what I like about you
Oh baby, oh honey, oh darlin', oh mercy
You know it's true, that's what I like about you
Repeat Chorus
That's what I like about you
That's what I like about you
Oh you know it's true

That's What I Think

Sometimes I think
things are overwhelming
sometimes I think
I don't know what I'll do
but I forget the world
and everything around me
that's what I think
when I think about you

The streets are filled
with too many babies
black air in a sky of blue
people pass by
no life in their eyes
the concrete jungle's
really going crazy

Sometimes I think
things are overwhelming...

The rent is due
and the pockets are empty
people ask machines
for the truth
no crystal ball
can help see it all
but where we gonna find
the dreams to feed the babies

Baby life goes on
that's what people say
but I'm nowhere
if you go away
I'd just be looking
for a brighter day

Sometimes I think
things are overwhelming...
what can I do
forget about the world
and everything around me
that's what I think
when I think about you

Conversation With Myself

words & music by jason mraz
Crazy, now whatcha doing?
Just the same, well I think Im right
Crazy how fast youre moving
As our friendship pays for your lonely night
This is a conversation with myself
Its okay to dance around it and have it your way
Laugh about it, oh for goodness sake
Dont believe in anything thats keeping you awake
Im feeling all sentimental and feeling all thru my head
Im feeling all very sexual but feeling all by myself instead
This is a conversation with myself
Its okay to dance around it and have it your way
Laugh about it, oh for goodness sake
Dont believe in anything thats keeping you awake
Loverboy, lovergirl,
You need a song to sleep to and morning to sleep thru
And have it your way.
You better have it your way with yourself.
You better have it your way anytime.
You better have it you way with yourself and only yourself
You better have it yours and baby you know that Ill have mine.

Glad I Had Nothing to Do With It

Am I embarrassed?
By what?
'Anything' I've ever done?
As a performing artist?

Why...
Do you think I should be?
Are you referring to that porno movie?
Now 'that' was a brilliant work of art.
And that was thirty four years ago!

Embarrassed?
Are you kidding?
I have more than gifted jewels to expose!
I'm a performing artist!
Not a scientist...
Wishing for my talents!

However...
I must admit,
I am a bit experimental!
Isn't that what creativity is?

Afterall...
Look in the mirror!
Two performers were very creative,
To put 'that' together!
But don't blame God.
He assisted them the best He could!

And I doubt...
If He is embarrassed at all!
Not saying that He should be.
But I am very glad,
I had nothing to do with it!

God delivers.
And we must accept it.
No matter if we are pleased with what we get.
Or not!
But keep faith!
Someone is there somewhere,
To love us for who we are.
No matter what we look like!

That's What I Get For Loving You

(Kent Blazy/Neil Thrasher)
I start every day with a smile on my face
And the feel of a kiss on my lips
When the world plays to rough I can find a healin touch
Lifes never been better than this
Thats what I get for lovin you
Heavens right here in my hands
A dream that is real and a heart that beats true
Thats what I get for lovin you
There was a time I walked outside the lines
I only thought of myself
Then you sat me down turned my head around
Now, I put you before everything else
Thats what I get for lovin you
Heavens right here in my hands
A dream that is real and a heart that beats true
Thats what I get for lovin you
Love is a feelin I never knew much about
Forevers a word I never said until now
Thats what I get for lovin you
Heavens right here in my hands
A dream that is real and a heart that beats true
Thats what I get for lovin you
Thats what I get for lovin you
Heavens right here in my hands
A dream that is real and a heart that beats true
Thats what I get for lovin you...

That's What Makes America Cool, You Know?

With apology to Bruce Willis...

we don't wrap our women up in burkas,
we like bikinis on the beach,
we invented hula hoops and frisbees,
we tolerate what anyone may preach,
we got chicken in every pot,
cars in every parking lot,
that's what makes America cool, you know?

we can only smoke cigarettes on the street,
we strap our babies down in a car seat,
if you come here you will learn,
we're cautious at every turn,
every chick and dude knows all about health food,
we play rock and roll with attitude,
that's what makes America cool, you know?

for the most part we win the wars we fight,
for the most part we know wrong from right,
we got sports and movies on our t.v.
twenty- four seven, sea to shining sea,
the casinos here are ace,
we handle our toxic waste,
that's what makes America cool, you know?

Lots of people sneak into our country,
Very few people try to sneak away,
pretty soon, we'll be back on the moon,
if you say we can't, you'll soon change your tune,
there ain't nothing we can't do,
Man, we're the red, white, and blue,
that's what makes America, cool, you know?
That's what makes America cool.

If That's What You Want

I don't like to think I'm predictable
When I'm loved by somebody I feel like a man
You know it's kind of hard to stop a waterfall
When it just keeps coming 'cause it can
And you've got to let go when your heart is on fire
And it's hard to say no
You can do anything now to me
Chorus 1
If that's what you want, baby I'll get it
If that's what you do, let's do it
If that's what you need, baby just take it
Now you're in a position to light my ignition
If that is what you want
I've been blown away by a hurricane
But hey I'm still standing and I come back for more
Hit me with your love, I can take the pain
'Cause you're so demanding, lay me down on the floor
And you've got to let go when your heart is on fire
And it's hard to say no, yeah
But you can do anything now to me
Chorus 2
If that's what you want, baby I'll get it
If that's what you do, let's do it
If that's what you need, baby oh baby just take it
Now you're in a position to soothe my condition
If that is what you want
Never stopped learning from the day that I was born
Now let me tell you you taught me where I was going wrong
No, I can't do without it
I'm gonna do something about it
Repeat chorus 1

Had I Not Stayed With You

now i live not a moment of each tear
my eyes so dry to see me clear
for this year
it were all pain of no care
a year
of struggles but no pay
that never did come my way
a year
of plain and square
a season of gain but so unfair

for had i not stayed with you so near
the blame; all within the air
thou lived not in fear
and lived of no fear
with you not so near
the one little voice unclear
crying for me in tear
but help not i offered my dear
distanced by thoughts not with you
and you see not what fits you
but rather dwell in astray to defeat you

had i not shared with you
all that i had with you
had i not admired you
all that i treasured were you
had i not smiled with you
had i not tried with you
memories faded away with you
the roar in your voice;
left me so bare and lame
the soul to mine were not the same
and need(ed) me not with you

but, had i not stayed with you
the history of mine without you
demands a journey to my own
and you not so near
the blame; all within the air
thou lived not in fear
and lived of no fear
with you not so near
the one little voice unclear
as you faded away without care

That's What This Process Is

If there is anything I've ever done,
That has not been true to the gift I was given.
And represented to invoke the growth,
And the understanding of it.
I think that would be okay!
I've laid down some 'art'.
Not the greatest.
And perhaps rated,
As not my best effort.

I will be the first to agree.
I am still in My Father's
Creative hands.
There is going to be some blemishes,
Before enhancements.
Who doesn't know that's what this process is?
If it is not...
I am not the one to argue over your assessment,
About this and whatever this is we are living.
Would you agree with what?

'Would I agree with what? '

That we are living?

'Man, I don't know what you're talking about.
You left me when you began opening your mouth.
Whenever your eyes start to glaze over...
I know you are about to receive a whiff,
Of some self contained joy.
But,
If I'm not mistaken.
I believe I asked you,
If you wanted to go to Eddie's and play pool! ?
'...I've laid down some art.'
What in the hell does that mean?
I've laid some down too.
And I was glad when that 'art' departed.
Shucks...
I can do a lap dance better than that! '

I think we are understanding the same thing.
However,
My depictions do add a bit of 'color'.

'You drinkin' Jack 'and' smokin' crack? '

That's What Love Can Do

I wanted a lover
To show me the way love goes
To know what it felt like
To let something take control
To live the expression
I'm head over heels this time
Unafraid to be open
And thinking I'd be just fine
But I found the very end
That it all depends
'Cause love can lift you so high
Or it'll leave you to die
And it's not like you ever get to choose
(Which way that it leads you)
Ooh it can play with your mind
Or make you feel so alive
Either way you'll survive 'cause
That's what love can do
Ohh, yeah yeah
That's what love can do
I guess now I get why
They say love is a dangerous game
'Cause when you think that you're winning
You find out that you just been been played
You give and you sacrifice
You make changes in your life
Everyone's got advice
But no one's got a clue (not even you)
And I found in the very end
That it all depends
'Cause love can lift you so high
Or it'll leave you to die
And it's not like you ever get to choose
(Which way that it leads you)
Ooh it can play with your mind
Or make you feel so alive
Either way you'll survive 'cause
That's what love can do
Ooh, ohh, ooh
That's what love can do
I'm dreaming, I'm dreaming
Dreaming of when I believed in
Fairy tales, sunset sails, it never fails
Till reality sets in
I begin to comprehend how crazy this has been
And I can't depend on
Anyone for my happily ever after
Yeah, yeah
'Cause love can lift you so high
Or it'll leave you to die
And it's not like you ever get to choose
(Which way that it leads you)
Ooh it can play
