Icebox

Stay until
You're sure that i'm asleep
Warm safe and very still
Give all my things away
Just wait until tomorrow
Bury me in sorrow
Cover me in joy

Every afternoon i wasted being mad at You
The things I never said
The things I can't say tomorrow
Bury me in sorrow
Cover me in joy

After death i'll think of You somehow
I'll have an eternity to think about tomorrow
I beg of You tomorrow
Bury me in sorrow
Cover me in joy

Sonnet-All Earthly Things Are Transient

However far, Science forges on ahead,
Whatever strides and giant leaps, Man makes;
All earthly things must become, one day dead,
A truth Men better learn for their own sakes.

However high, you may fly in the air,
However far, you go away from home;
Return you must to earth and earthenware!
Just burst bubbles all make the lather-foam.

Nothing is everlasting in this world;
All things here cease sometime after their birth;
Civilizations new must become old;
This is the destined law upon this earth.
And some day, Man must look into his soul!
The wiser man, resets, adjusts his goal.

I Will Survive

The world can be a hard place
for everyone living here.
Dangers present themselves
to us on a daily basis.

Each day we look
forward to the next,
always saying to ourselves
I will survive I will survive.

We battle through the black clouds
that circle around our head
always thinking of
the better times that lie ahead.

We sleep and dream
of all the things we wish
always saying to ourselves
I will survive I will survive.

What can I say of myself

What can I say of myself
That others has said of me
Even though they were always wrong
No, I do not grow a tail at night
No, monkeys have straight hair not I
They say that I abandon
My children for a jail cell in the company of men
They do not know that I do not hate my dark skin
It is the money of whites, their power
That denies me; keep me in the yoke of self hatred
They fear my power to survive
It is greater then their to enslave
Financially and sexually as is the American way
By my black American culture am I made brave
They think that I want their daughters and sons
To bring then over to the beautiful dark side
As they are entice by the art of being black
They want me to mount them to bring
Them closer to the animal that we all are
To praise me they say that I am to articulate to be black
And they want to know if this is my real hair
And they call my skull cap a doo rag
They tell me that they too love fried chicken
And watermelon and can get down with some corn bread and collard green
With smoked ham hocks or neck bones
They want to know why I am so angry
As a black man who should be prove to be born an American
And why I am acting white when I dress preppy
Why don’t I sound black over the phone
They want to know why I eat pig feet
They say that I should get over slavery
But not that the Jews should get over the Holocaust
They want to touch my hair
Their women folks are quick to commit crimes
And blame it on a black man
They think that the lighter my skin color
The less dangerous and friendlier I am.
They tell me that I got rhythm

I can't give you anything but love, Baby,
That's the only thing I've plenty of, Baby.

Till that lucky day, you know darned well, Baby,

Words can't say enough….(Thank you)

Thank you….
I now feel strong because I had someone to pick me up when I was down
Thank you….
For being there when others looked down on me
Thanks you….
Because you never gave up on me
Thank you....
For showing that there is a difference between right and wrong
Thank you….
For helping me, put my shattered heart back to together
Thank you….
For giving me a second chance in life
Thank you….
For showing that things happen for a reason
Thank you….
For helping me fix a broken life
Thank you….
I can see now these things called happiness and love
Thank you
Words can't say enough of how I feel about you

You Can't Bullshit A Woman If She Loves You

You can't bullshit a woman if she loves you
She'll feel right thru you and distort your heart
You can't bullshit a woman if she loves you
Because of all the lovin' just for starts

She'll make you sing the truth without detection
You'll find that you can't treat her less than fare
She's deep down to the bone
You'll never feel alone
She's more than a best friend
She's your's for life

You can't bullshit a woman if she loves you
Just her smile alone consumes your soul
You can't bullshit a woman if she loves you
She'll leave you feeling happy and consoled

In all the things you do without exception
You consider her first, last, and in between
so long as she can be
her true self she'll be free
She's the better part of me, she make's me whole
You can't bullshit a woman who love's you so

All The Things Weve Never Done

(craig bickhardt/jeff pennig)
They drank their anniversary glass
A silent moment passed
Then they kissed
She knows theres something on his mind
Hell tell her in due time
What it is
He says Ive never built
Your mansion on a hill
Or warmed you in the spanish sun
I simply blink my eye
And think as years fly by
Of all the things weve never done
She smiles and takes his hand in hers
And says it just occured
To me now
The thought that brings you such regret
What hasnt happened yet
It makes me proud...
You never walked away
When I needed you to stay
Or made me feel Im not the one
Thereve been no broken vows
And there reason were here now
Is all the things weve never done
Weve never grown apart
You never broke my heart
With secrets that youve kept me from
Weve never been untrue
And Im still here with you
Through all the things weve never done

All The Things

You paint a rainbow of emotion
You are the rhythm...life is the dance... yeah
You are the queen of many faces
How you can move me with just one glance
I dont stand a chance
All the things I love about you
Keeps amazing me now
All the things I love about you
Youre a garden of many hidden secrets
Leaving clues to the mysteries you will reveal
You are the eyes of intuition
You see through illusion... you know whats real
Just something you feel
All of the things I love about you
Ten thousand dreams you make come true
Devil and angel, lover melted into one...
All the things I love about you
Keeps amazing me now
All the things I love about you
My while world revolves around you
Changing colors with the moon...
Keep amazing me I never get enough
You twist the truth still yourre sincere
To get your way youll shed a tear
Dont need a reason when youre beautiful...
All of the things I love about you
Then thousand dreams you make come true
Devil and angel, lover melted into one...
My whole world revolves around you
Changing colors with the moon.
All the things I love about you

Can'tcha Say (You Believe In Me) (remix)

CAN'TCHA SAY (YOU BELIEVE IN ME)
Boston
(G. Green/T. Scholz/B. Delp)
Can'tcha say you believe in me
Can'tcha see what you mean to me
Everyday I think of you you're on my mind
Some things in the past are better left behind
Every night I dream of you the images as clear as day
Can'tcha say you believe in me
Can'tcha say you believe in me
You know that where there's a will there's a way
Can'tcha say you believe in me
Can't you see what it means to me
Don't leave me alone tonight
'Cause I still love you
We've had our time apart and I knew right from the start
I could never change the way I feel about you baby
We can sit here all night long and separate the right from wrong
But love won't wait
Can'tcha say you believe in me
Can'tcha say you believe in me
You know that where there's a will there's a way
Can'tcha say you believe in me
Can't you see what it means to me
Don't leave me alone tonight
'Cause I still love you
Oooh oooh still in love with you
You know I need you baby to stand by me
Can't you see I need you baby
Oooh oooh I'm still in love with you

I Want You

The last time that I saw her
Was the night she said goodbye
She said that love's a stranger
And it's sure to pass you by
As she packed up her belongings
She wouldn't look me in the eye
But I could see a tear roll
Off her face
As we both tried so hard
Not to cry she said

I never wanted the stars
Never shot for the moon
I like them right where they are
All I wanted was you
So baby just turn away
Because I can't face the truth
All I'm trying to say
Is all I wanted was you

I tried so hard to remember
When where how why love went away
I tried to drown myself in pity
But the whiskey kept calling your name

I bought you fancy cars and diamond rings
All the things that my money brings
And the servants to paint the sky blue
And I worked so hard seven days a week
And built a fortress for your heart to keep
If I could I'd wrap these words up for you

I never wanted the stars
Never shot for the moon
I like them right where they are
All I wanted was you
So baby just turn away
Because I can't face the truth
All I'm trying to say
Is all I wanted was you

I may have built for you a dreamhouse
But never thought you were alone
I filled the party up with company
But never made our house a home
All I got is my guitar

Sixteen Ways to Never Fall In Love

1. Do not read this.

2. Make sure there is only enough room in your pockets
for one night stands
and the receipt for the breakfast
you will eat alone the next morning.

3. Constantly live in the wrong time
because romance
and the watch that ticks on your wrist
never quite seem to line up.

4. Repeat 'I like being alone. It's freeing'
but never learn the feeling
of just how free you can be
when you touch someone
who looks like the dreams you had before you knew
how cruel the world was.

5. Say that you have seen love fall apart
like birds have seen rooftops
but never stop to think
that although it may hurt when it breaks,
that will never change how beautiful it was
when it came together.

6. If you meet someone
who reminds you of magic,
let them vanish into thin air.

7. Instead of whispering secrets
across pillowcases,
let them live inside you
because you believe that never giving voice to your weakness
gives you strength.

8. Do not find out
what the sound of selflessness feels like,
a laugh or a satisfied sigh.

9. Hide the broken parts of yourself
because you think
that brokenness
does not deserve to be loved.

10. Ignore when I say
that brokenness is what needs
and deserves to be loved
more than anything.

11. Settle for the one
who only suits your shallow desires,
and when the flame finally burns out,
pretend that you love the emptiness
of a superficial romance.

12. If there is someone you have encountered
who makes you feel even a fragment of possibility
that you could find love within them
bury those feelings beneath your cowardice.

13. Make sure that sex
begins with alcohol
and ends with an unrehearsed
and imperfect goodbye.

14. Do not glance into their eyes.

15. Do not look at them
when they are candid
and unplanned
because those moments
are the ones where love often lingers
and waits for you to notice
just how beautiful someone can be
when they are trying their very least.

16. Say that it's too early
you're too busy
it's too hard,
keep riffling off the things that you call reasons
and you may wake up one day
to find that maybe now,
it's too late.
The one you could have loved
is the one
that you let get away.

Things I Can Change

a lot of things i can change...
the coffee filter,
the trash bag, the razor
on the sink.
the sheets on the bed,
my pants, the book i'm reading.
the things i watch,
the things i say,
sometimes the things i feel.
the things i eat,
what i drink, what i smoke.
a lot of things i can change...
but not the hands on the clock,
or the knock on the door!

All The Things You Are

You are the promised kiss of springtime
That makes the lonely winter seem long
You are the breathless hush of evening
That trembles on the brink of a lovely song
You are the angel glow that lights a star
The dearest things I know are what you are
Some day my happy arms will hold you
And some day Ill know that moment divine
When all the things you are, are mine
You are the angel glow that lights a star
The dearest things I know are what you are
Some day my happy arms will hold you
And some day Ill know that moment divine
When all the things you are, are mine

All Good Things Come To An End...

One of the hardest things to bear
Is when you lose a friend.
Someone you loved who made you care,
And yet all good things end.
That's why I'll treasure every kiss
That you once blew to me
And every measure of true bliss
That leads to ecstasy.
While life goes on, it's not the same,
For there's a missing piece.
The part that's like a candle's flame
Or like the Golden Fleece.
Some think that friendship's merely smiles,
Just laughs along the way...
Like holy magic that beguiles
As long as it can stay.
That's why I offer up a prayer,
Sweet Princess God has sent!
Your kisses are beyond compare!
God bless my precious friend!

You'll Never Know Who She Is

I haven't quite recovered
from being your friend
it takes so much out of me
cause I want you more but then
I realize we're not meant to be
not even in the least
but I've fallen for you anyway
I'm wishing you could see
Your face, Your eyes
please tell me you love me tonight
because right now that would mean more
than anything
your lips
form words
that make my heart beat so fast
that i'm sure
in two short words
you are my everything
mabey one day down the road
you'll know you were my crush
but knowing that would seperate us
and mess our friendship up
so now I'll sit here in the shadows
while others come and go
feeling all these things for you
and wishing you could know
(Chorus

You Can't Say (You Don't Love Me Anymore)

You can say, old things must end
You can smile and even pretend
And you can turn and walk away so easily
But you can't say, you don't love me anymore.
You can dream of what might have been
You can cry for what won't pass again
And you can say there's every reason you should leave
But you can't say, you don't love me anymore.
You can say I'm right you're wrong
You can make your plans to find somebody else
But I can't believe you can carry on
We know what should be said
But you can't find the words instead.
You say, old things must end
You can smile and even pretend
And you can turn and say you're leaving me for good
But you can't say, you don't love me anymore.
And you can turn and say you're leaving me for good
But you can't say, you don't love me
First just say, you don't love me anymore...
