Who Knows

Why do you look so familiar ?
I could swear that I have seen your face before
I think I like that you seem sincere
I think I'd like to get to know you
a little bit more
Chorus
I think there's something more
Life's worth living for
Who knows what could happen
Do what you do
Just keep on laughing
One thing's true
There's always a brand new day
I'm gonna live today like it's my last day
How do you always have an opinion
And how do you always find
the best way to compromise
We don't need to have a reason
We don't need anything we're just wasting time
Chorus (2x)
Find yourself
'cause I can't find you
Be yourself
Where are you ?
Find yourself
'cause I can't find you
Be yourself
Who are you ?
Chorus
So you go and make it happens
Do your best
Just keep on laughing
I'm telling you
There's always a brand new day
Chorus

If You Think There's Something

If you think there's something
If you think there's something
If you think there's something
I don't care what I look like
I don't care what you think
Because I know these things are not important
They're just material and ink
I like things comfortable
And I like things that look real good
I don't care about the cut, it is enough
If it's smooth and not too rough
If you think there's something
Could it be that there's not?
If you think there's something
Is there or is there not?
If you think there's something
It can be that there's not
So if you think there is something
Something that there is not
Ooh-ooh, perhaps a pair of trousers
Or a band that plays rock
If you think there's something
Could it be that there's not?
If you think there's something
Is there or is there not?
If you think there's something
If you think there's something
If you think there's something
Dodgy instrumental break....
That fine physique, that pretty face
Lights up his fantasies - puts them in place
Oh what's his stance, where is he coming from?
We try to follow but he's gone
If you think there's something
Could it be that there's not?
If you think there's something
Is there or is there not?
If you think there's something
It can be that there's not
If you think there's something
If you think there's something
If you think there's something
If you think there's something
Perhaps and maybe not
If you think there's something
Can we agree there's not?
If you think there's something
And we say that there's not
If you think there's something...

Why'd You Go And Break My Heart

(David Anthony)
Seems you cam along at the right time
A fallin' in love is all my idea
Others warned me about the broken hearts
You left behind
Now why'd you have to go and prove em right
Now thanks to you
I know just how they feel
And because of you
My heart is broke in to
I'm feelin' like a fool
For puttin' my trust in you
You left me wonderin' why
You didn't even say goodbye
Well excuse me if I'm now that smart
But why'd you go and break my heart
And because of you
My heart is broke in to
I'm feelin' like a fool
For puttin' my trust in you
You left me wonderin' why
You didn't even say goodbye
Well excuse me if I'm now that smart
But why'd you go and break my heart
Well excuse me if I'm not that smart
But why'd you go and break my heart

Little Bit Of Soul

You been robbed
You been used
You been crucified and
You been abused
You been sacrificed and
Now you're confused
Ain't it the truth

You got a hole in your head
And a cold empty spot
In your big brass bed
When you're mad at the world and
You feel like you're losing control
All you need to get by is
A little bit of soul

When you've lost in the flood
And you feel like you been
Kicked through the mud
You know they still
Haven't found the drug
To pick us up

Feeling down

Why don’t you smile?

How can smile such a sweet smiles,
When saddened by sorrow for miles
Smile is a sign of cheer
You are important and also dear
Smile is like a hope
It teaches you to remove the clouds of mope
For nothing but only a smile
Takes away your pain and trial
And pick your troubles in pile
Smile show of trust
Be happy even in hard crust
Smile is a sign of care
It teach you how to share
Smile because its healing
It makes people wonder
What youre thinking.
Smile smugly as you’ve done your work.
forgiving to pardon the jerk.
Smile because you want to
And smile just because you can!
So why dont you smile
And forget youre sorrow for a while

Oh! Why?

You live and you die
Why?
Why do you go
And make others cry?
Why does every life
End up in a Sigh?
Why do we live
If we have to die?
Is there anyone out there
Who can answer my Whys?

It is very painful to see
Orphaned children cry.
Husbands and wives
Having empty beds to lie.
Why is Death so Ruthless?
God so Thoughtless?

Why does He bring us
To this world?
Gives us feelings
And relations
To love, care
Smile and cry...
And then we tend to become
'Emotionless'.

Clutching a heavy heart
Yet standing in this world
All alone - motionless.
Showing our 'strong' selves
And our 'masked' faces.
Though we all feel weak
And so very vulnerable -
In the mighty throes of Death.

O God! Why are you so
Careless, Mindless,
Heartless...
Giving us a life
That is so very pointless
B'cos the day we die
We lose everything.

No relations
No home
No family
No love
No kisses nor cuddles

Going away alone
To a world unknown

How frightening and lonesome
Can that solitary feeling be...

Leaving our loved ones
Behind
And a life so futile
Like so many lives
Being put to death
Day in and day out
Countless, Ceaseless...

God! come to Earth
And feel for yourself
What it is to live
And to die -
Loved ones crying
Before your bleary eyes
As you pass away...
And bereaved ones
Mourning in agony
For years -
Many more...

Oh! Why? Oh! Why? Oh! Why?

Why do we have to live
If we all have to die...

The loss of a loved one
Is so very painful -
As if we all live to lose
And everyday
We live to die...


(This poem is dedicated to Radha Mami, a lovely lady who lost her life to Cancer on October 6th' 2007.)

I Wake Up Crying

I wake up crying
After tossin' and turnin'
And a-yearnin' the whole night long
Pretty baby since you went away
I haven't spent a happy day
I wake up crying
After sobbin' and sighin'
And a-wonderin' just what went wrong
Pretty baby I was good to you
Why'd you go and make me blue
I need your arms to hold me tight
I need your sweet lips to kiss me goodnight
I'm so unhappy on my own
Don't don't leave me sad and lonely
I wake up crying
After tossin' and turnin'
And a-yearnin' the whole night long
Pretty baby please come back to me
Save me from this mesery
Oh baby won'tcha save me from this mesery
Please baby won'tcha save me from this mesery

Father & Son

Father
Its not time to make a change,
Just relax, take it easy.
Youre still young, thats your fault,
Theres so much you have to know.
Find a girl, settle down,
If you want you can marry.
Look at me, I am old, but Im happy.
I was once like you are now, and I know that its not easy,
To be calm when youve found something going on.
But take your time, think a lot,
Why, think of everything youve got.
For you will still be here tomorrow, but your dreams may not.
Son
How can I try to explain, when I do he turns away again.
Its always been the same, same old story.
From the moment I could talk I was ordered to listen.
Now theres a way and I know that I have to go away.
I know I have to go.
Father
Its not time to make a change,
Just sit down, take it slowly.
Youre still young, thats your fault,
Theres so much you have to go through.
Find a girl, settle down,
If you want you can marry.
Look at me, I am old, but Im happy.
(son-- away away away, I know I have to
Make this decision alone - no)
Son
All the times that I cried, keeping all the things I knew inside,
Its hard, but its harder to ignore it.
If they were right, Id agree, but its them you know not me.
Now theres a way and I know that I have to go away.
I know I have to go.
(father-- stay stay stay, why must you go and
Make this decision alone? )

There Is Something You Need To Know

in my lies
are hidden truths

in my fiction
lies realities

the characters
are real
speaking their lies
and deceptions

the plot
goes awry
the tone
a monotone

and i,
as the author
still thinks
about
a happy ending

there is
something
you need
to know
more

i am always
there

but keep on
reading
and understanding

after
all, i could be

yourself

Just A Little Bit

Your thinking that you love him
Your careering off the track
Your too busy doing nothing
You don't see that it won't last
When your strung across the age gap
All your friends spin down the drain
And your th proof of that old cliche
If I could only have my time again

Hand on-off the handle
Where's your self respect?
Your water up all sucked ending
Where's your measurement now?

Think your the artful Dodger
You can only dodge for so long
And when fate it pulls your plug out
You'll wonder what wen't wrong

Hand on-off your handle
Where's your self respect?
Your water up all sucked ending
Where's your measurement now?

There's no way back
No way back
Just a little bit
Just a little bit

When your stung across the age gap
All your friends speed down the train
And your to prune that old clesche
If I could only have my time again

Hand on-off the handle
Where's your self respect?
Your water up all sucked ending
Where's your measurement now?

Nowhere fast
Nowhere fast
Just a little bit
Just a little bit

Best way to keep a secret is tell it, just like that – mixes in with all the other palaver – nobody’s gonna listen, believe you or even care: the Secret

told the lady behind the counter
at the deli that Im crazy and she just laughed and said no! But its true I really am crazy
And she said you don't look crazy
And I said no I don't suppose I do
That's part of my problem though I look normalwhateverthatis but Im not
I walk around in a world of normal people and every once in a while I have to poke someone and tell them Im not in the same world as they are and then they don't think Im crazy
but that I am crazy for saying so

And she leaned over at me finally and said
What is it you are crazy weeth? And I said

Im bi-polar. You know, manic-depressive?

And her eyes glazed over like the hams and salami
You don't know what that is do you? I said
And she said
No I don't know. What is that? And I said

That's what I am, Im manic-depressive
Andshesaid in hersweetest sleepy-eyed droopy-eyelid limpid voice
Im sorry Im very sorry you're … whatever it is you said...

I tell you what (she said) ! ! Get far away! Just get away from it all for a while! Take a vacation when's the last time you took a vacation?

Go drive somewhere in your car even if you don't know where you're going!
and I said i can't get away from myself Im sorry

I have to take me with myself wherever I go he goes and I come
I go and he comes I wish I could...

Then I realized this was just too much about me and my words trailed off

What vacation did she want to/ need to take! ? What was crazy when crazy really came to her? What was it for her to speak her heart to a stranger?

What did all my words spun and flung so carelessly bite into I didn't know this lady

So I said well, yea, you know I’ll do that

And she smiled it meant a lot thats what you have to give when you're
In yourself
Gave her the response she needed to hear
heart to heart
Appreciate it really- your idea- I’ll do it!
Im gonna try and do that

And by the way
don't mind all my crazy talk
You know, Im just a little crazy

And she said no! And I said yes! No! Yes! Ha haha

I am

And I could hear myself and how I must sound to her
Like some bothersome man who needs the attention - lonely most likely like men get when they think about it and probably - more than likely
They had too much liquor
The alcohol- and the way they talk
because they're drunk - they talk around women
And cant see the barriers and can't see that they're seen sloppy drunk they say

Don't pay me any mind, Im just crazy
And then they tap the sides of their head like it'll rattle
and they grin
that awkward, hanging grin
When their lips and tongue are thick their heads spinning and the room is turning around them

And he thinks Im putting on a pretty good show
Im drunk and I know it
Dont show it too much

Want to be loose but not too loose and lose their respect and he thinks in the far back of whats left functioning in that mind he's pickling

That because he can't see straight
that nobody else can either

But knowing they’re pretty drunk they stumble and sway towards the door because you don't score women when you're drunk
You just have some fun
And practice the lines you're too introverted to say sober you have some fun and kill another night

Stumbling and waving as they go thinking for the life of them
Im crazy to be this drunk but Im a crazy guy

Until they wake up the next morning and find out they're not crazy at all just sick

And it's the same-ol same-ol: job, wife or kids a pale sheet pulled over the world of lights and fancy

But I wake up the next day (woke up one day, that is) and find out
(found out)

No hang over just a spill-over
a continuation of what I thought had been a bad experience
and now its just my life
and life just kind of flip-flopped on me in the night

So I turned around walked away from the nice lady iknewjustasmidgenbetter in the deli
to tap the side of my head and grinned at her
a wide but fading grin
attempting to leer

Tell Me What You Want (And I'll Give You What You Need)

Patrick simmons
Easy, time wont keep you waitin any longer
Than you waited in the past
Cool and breezy, winds are blowin sweetly
On the edges of the garden at last
Tell me what you want and Ill give you what you need
Tell me what you want and Ill give you what you need
Tell me what you want and Ill give you what you need
Look into my eyes and youll see me standin there
Feelin happiness inside you now
You always knew it was a state of mind
Youre just reelin, takin in the thoughts around you
Every ones got secrets you must find
Tell me what you want and Ill give you what you need
Tell me what you want and Ill give you what you need
Tell me what you want and Ill give you what you need
Look into my eyes and youll see me standin there
Oo, its so easy
Cool and breezy
What a feelin
Its got me reelin
Tell me what you want and Ill give you what you need
Tell me what you want and Ill give you what you need
Tell me what you want and Ill give you what you need
Look into my eyes and youll see me standin there

Despair, i know you do not like the word

I know you do not like the word
Its color its scent, how we relate it to something black
And smoky and ghastly and ghostly
Some say, red is the color of despair
Others say it is like black coffee because
It does not make you sleep
And make you curl the whole day in
Your dark room without wanting
To talk to somebody and just be there
Alone by yourself, pondering, almost crazy

Not yet anyway, so you go on a compromise
Grey is the color of despair
Dusk, or dawn, or something dawning yet
Like an idea of a suicide unhatched
Delayed like an egg still undecided whether
To hatch or not to hatch and face the world
Of chickens

Despair, what is so big about despair
No big deal, it comes to you whether
You like it or not
As a matter of necessity, face it and state
Its name and stare and say, I muster this
Despair, I am its master and not its slave
And then, when you know all its particulars
You know what to do
Kill it and if it is not killed yet
Well

Well, well, just learn to live with it
Sleep and with, make love with it
And well,

Have kids with despair and call them
Their names: the usual, the normal and
The everyday. And just be prolific.

Look At You

Look at you baby
Standing in the shadows wondering what Im doing here
Wishing something would happen, maybe I could disappear
She walks in with that look in her eye
Somehow she doesnt even have to try
Just kick off your shoes, get on the floor
This is what we came here for
Oooooh, youve got to break it down
Youve got to get it out
Just get on the floor
Everybody wonders when they look at you
Everybody wonders what youre gonna do
You got it all wrapped up you do
Everybody wonders when they look at, look at you
Look at you baby, look at you baby
In the middle of the dance floor lights shinin in my face
Twistin, shoutin there was no doubt people dancing all over the place
Out of the corner of my eye she said why dont you come and give it a try
Get on the floor, just kick off your shoes
You aint got a thing to lose
Oooooh, youve got to break it down
Its time to get it out
Just get on the floor
(repeat chorus)
Look at you, look at you baby
Look at you, look at you baby
Look at you, look at you baby
Ooooh, whoooooa, whoooooa, baby
Look at you, look at you baby
Look at you, look at you baby
Look at you, look at you baby
Ooooh, whoooooa, whoooooa, baby
I was standing in the shadows wondering what Im doing here
Wishin something would happen so that I could disappear
She breaks the silence with a move of her hips
You better hang on dont want to lose your grip
Kick off your shoes, get on the floor
This is what were waiting for
Oooooh, youve got to break it down
Youve got to get it out. just get on the floor.

I Believe In You (feat. Latoiya Williams)

[Latoiya Williams]
I'm so glad that you believe in me like I believe in you
This love's exactly how I picture... (how I picture)
It's such a joy when I receive all that I need in you
We're flowing smooth just like a river... (like a river)
Express my true
When, I make love to you... (to you)
Just like that day back in September
If we might run in some problems
I know you'll see me through
There's nothing for you I wont do
Cause I believe in you... (you)
Oh I believe in you... (you)
[Snoop Dogg]
And I believe in you too
See can't nobody make me do what you do
I mean I'm so in love with you... (boo)
I never thought a girl could make me
Take me
To a whole new world
Re-shape me, love me, hate me
Lately
We ain't been fussing or fighting
You play all day and I be working at night and
The only one who understands my life and
The cake and the icing
These other girls
In the world
Live their life so trifling
I couldn't do it no more
I had to sit you down
And make you my wife and... (yaa)
Cold thing
But you know
It's a cold gain... (goal gain)
It's so real
I had to bless you with my last name... (last name)
Slowed me down
Straight took me out the fast lane... (fast lane)
Hold me down
Come on baby
Watch me do this thing... (do it)
I been crowned king
So I guess that means you're my queen
You have my seeds
Lets go ahead and raise this team
It's so special
You're all I ever need
[Latoiya Williams]
I'm feeling good and my baby's home
You're spending time
Holding hands
To this beat
The fellow that can satisfy my every need
Is he the one?
We've been around and we're both grown... (grown)
Look at me... (me)
I'm like a baby
I took that chance
And I feel secure about this love romance
Let's have some fun
And I believe when you say
Ain't that special... (oh)
Touch my soul... (soul)
Feel the same
When you whisper softly
And call my name
Here I come
It's more than words that I ever could sing
You're that chill bring
Maybe your walk or just the way you do me
I really think we are the two
Cause I believe in you
Take a second realize we can make it if you
Don't stop
Come on boy we about to take it
To the top
I know you're gonna love what you're about to see
Do you believe in me?
We can make it all nite long
Baby if we
Don't stop
Come on boy you know you got me
So hot
I know I'm gonna love what you're about to do
Cause I believe in you
I believe in you
[Snoop Dogg]
And I believe in you too
Cause its the right thing to do
And I believe in you too
Cause its the only thing to do
I couldn't give you away
No matter what my friends sizzay
See when I'm gone
Away from home
I'm alone every dizzay
I left a gang of messages for you
On your two way
But you ain't hollered back
But you know how, you play
You say, ok
I say, no way
We got to be together forever
And a dizzay
Cause I believe in you
[Latoiya Williams]
Take a second realize we can make it if we
Don't stop

What's To Keep You From Dancing?

What's to keep you from dancing if you've got nothing to live for?
Dance naked in your tears. Cry through your laughter.
Plunge into a black hole and come out the other side,
renewed, a virgin, no more feathers and tar pits.
No more dead petals in a dry fountain. Absurd, isn't it?
When you begin to compare skulls with the moon,
not at all what you imagined you would see, not even
the prevailing consensus of delusion that passes for reality,
this neo-primordial soup of logos and memes
we're all swimming in like fish in radioactive water.
This pre-Cambrian efoliation of multitudinous sentience
re-inventing cuneiform to write it all down in the Burgess Shale
three hundred million years from now, fossil by fossil
and one among myriads, the lucky lottery ticket
of a fish with a spinal cord that will lead eventually
back to the saddest excuses in the world for the likes of us.

I've stood on bridges late at night by myself
watching the waters flow as if my mindstream
were going on without me, and the pain were too much
even for a poet to sublimate his way out of,
and I've lived my way to the end of a labyrinth of cul de sacs
and wearied of their chronic recurrence like a water wheel
at an abandoned mill that used to gamble on a river boat
things would stay afloat long enough to make shore
before the ship goes down. The crucial point here
is not to live with regrets as if you had something personally
to do with all of it. There's no starmap
for the burrs of the sorrows that smoulder
like brown constellations in the slums of an inflammable zodiac.

You diminish your arrogance at the expense of your humility
that's grown as gigantic as God, when you think
you know enough about the unknowable to fix the blame
as if you'd just come up with a new alibi for you and the world.
Could be a curse. Could be a blessing. Could be
an improbable concourse of unforeseen events
that's been chain-reacting well before
the infinite beginnings of the multiverse.

You cut your skin with razors as if you were
playing tic tac toe on your thighs, hoping someone
would come along like an antidote and suck the poison out.
But life isn't sweet when you've learned
to weep through your fangs. Go ask the moon.
There's no holy crusade going on as if the rose
aroused its petals to go to war against the infidelity of its thorns.
Even the predators, in their own way, are the children of their prey.
The longer the fangs. The sharper the talons. The harder the armour.
Ever seen what an owl can do to a snake? Yes,
things can be bad, but not necessarily for your sake.

They can be good, too, but if you think it's for you,
you're going to end up telling lies about suffering in your sleep
like a flashflood in a dry creekbed trying to wake the frogs
that have burrowed deep into the starmud for the duration
by singing to themselves in the rain as if they'd just had a revelation
it's wet on the moon again. I'd could give you any one
of a thousand interpretations of your eyes. I could
turn your sacred snake's tongue where the rivers part
into a green witching wand twitching over the watersheds
of mystic lightning. I could scry the self-sacrifice of your next breath
like the smoke of a distant fire on an autumn hillside
and try to explain the fireflies as the popular demotic
of the proto-nostratic of the stars and how that relates
to the scars on your leg. Befuddle you into a salvation
that would last at least a couple of decades before
you could ever find your way back by your own lights
to where you were going with the rain before I met you.

You're not wrong. You're not right. I could say that and mean it
as easily as a principled astrolabe looks upon a starless night
and doesn't try to see what isn't there. It isn't dark.
It isn't bright out. It's clear all the way to the next star
if you don't bind yourself to a mental atmosphere
where the mind suffers at the hands of its own weather
like a child that thinks it needs to be taught to wake up
from its own nightmare when, in fact, once things
begin to bottom out it's as over as a bubble rising to the top.

Pop! No more delusion, no more enlightenment.
No more mirages taking charge of the wellsprings
in the desert of stars in ruins around Jericho
as the wind shapes the sands in an hourglass
like a potter or a sculptor into a sea of eyes
that can actually flow like tears of glass in the heat
you can drink from like a dragon on the moon
just before it begins to rain. And the grasslands awaken
of their own accord. And everywhere guitar-shaped gazelles
are getting up on their own four legs like amputees
that haven't forgotten how to dance to the elegant thunder
of their own leopard skin drums. And the rain
comes back to your drought-stricken eyes again
and runs like rivulets and the unravelled threads of your lifelines
through the starmud gullies of your brain breaking
into waterlilies of insight on the banks of your mindstream
tempering the broken swords of moonlight
that are offered to it in tribute, not surrender,
because there is no war, into alloys of reality and dream,
delusion, enlightenment, imagination and awakening
no one before you has ever fallen upon like a dancer
who was cut to the quick by a life she's not been out of step with
by not so much as one angstrom of a wavelength of a firefly
for all the billions of lightyears along the way
you've been leading a pilgrimage of shadows deeper into the night
like a calendar of shepherd moons
you've been slashing like a sundial on your legs
moments away from the shrine of broken promises
you intend to keep like a vow you made to yourself
sleepwalking your way across the corals of your grief in bare feet
as if sooner or later you could tread all that blood into wine.

Put your dancing shoes on. Crystal slippers. Moonboots. Winged heels.
Stop carving your body like a deathmask you can wear in the world
like an alphabet with omega as its only child.
Why lie down on the grave of that morose saint of clowns
you prayed to deliver you from yourself like the spade
you were using to dig your own ditch on the moon
for the mass assassination of the innocent and obscene?
I'm a poet. And to me you're as beautiful inside and out
as a blank piece of paper after the first snow
has had a taste of moonlight and softly glows in the dark.
Not Joan of Arc singing at the stake of her own serpent-fire
feathering her body in flames, in boas of smoke to cover up
the glyphs of the bird tracks on the secret loveletter
she's been writing to herself in the flesh to really mean
what she says when she says I want to live, I want to love,
I want to give and receive the way I breathe without
meaning anything by it. I want to see, because I have
brave eyes, deeply into the light, into the dark, the mystery
of a life that keeps on going without knowing where it ends.

You look so familiar

May I know your name?
You look so familiar
I met you somewhere

A Little Bit Uncomfortable

honestly, it felt like
i was a little bit
uncomfortable but
you know too well
where i have to
go and what i have
to do to do it well
and smartly
i finished just in
time a minute
before you
and you lay there
asleep
in the heavens of
your dreams
as i cover myself
on this nakedness
the first time
i really like to say
thank you
but i didn't but you
know how thankful
i was when you
first made me
feel that i am
what i am.

A Little Bit Of Sunlight

Tears would fall like the falling rain,
There would be a sea.
But you dont have to cry to prove your love,
Just believe in me.
cause a little bit of sunlight is all that I want from you,
A little bit of sunlight,
Is all that I want,
All that I want,
All that I want from you.
A man who cant live with cloudy skies,
Should only wait and see.
Soon all the clouds will disappear,
And leave just you and me.
cause a little bit of sunlight is all that I want from you,
A little bit of sunlight,
Is all that I want,
All that I want,
All that I want from you.
