What is your happiness?

happiness for some is a buck and a quarter,
happiness for other is a son or a daughter.
but what is happiness to you?
sure you can define,
if your feeling is such that you're no longer mine.
what is happiness...
and how can it be;
that there was once happiness,
now, no longer seen?
paradise we 'shared'
twas paradise to me,
now the paradise is just that of a flooded dream.
time is of the essance,
but time is what you need.
time to mend a broken heart,
or tear it at the seam.
words unspoken,
one side unheard,
all that your feeling,
is my number one concern.
you thoughts, your feelings this knowledge I yearn,
all that I've spoken, but now it's your turn.

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

Tell My Broken Heart That

Tell My Broken Heart That
When you told me you
Loved me was that true
Was your heart really
For me or was it all just
A lie to
Tell My Broken Heart That
How come when you said
You will not hurt me
You turn around and do it
Anyways lets just
Face it you don't keep
Your promises when you say
You do keep them
Tell My Broken Heart That
So thanks again for leaving
Me I will just try
To find my broken heart
Pieces that you through all over
You will not help me
Find them right well
Why don't you
Tell My Broken Heart That

You Need Love Like I Do (feat. Heather Small)

From The RELOAD Album
Tom Jones with Heather Small
Well, well, well
It seems like it was only yesterday
When my Momma told me dont fall in love with the first girl that comes your way
She was pretty and nice but I took her advice and passed her by
Years have passed and it dont look like loves gonna give me a second try
Boy the look on your face tells me you understand
Could it be your love life, like mine needs a helping hand
Yeah You need love like I do, dont you?
I can tell by the way you look, when Im looking at you
I know it aint fit and proper for a girl to talk this way
But I cant cope with this loneliness, not one more dog-gone day
Every day has been an uphill climb to keeping my hopes afloat
Judging by your silence boy, you must be in the same boat
And again now
You need love like I do, dont you?
I can tell by the way you look, when Im looking at you - well, well, well, well,
You need love like I do, dont you?
It seems like Im looking in the mirror, when Im looking at you
I cant begin to tell how many night times have been all lonely,
Come on tell me girl does it ever happen to you?
Im gonna tell you something and believe me it aint no joke,
My love life is just like a sinking boat
I can understand a person being without money
But surely there isnt a reason for a person to be without love.
Listen to me now; Im a girl and youre a guy
Yes its true
Come on lets give love a try
He he damn
You need love like I do, dont you?
I can tell by the way you look, when Im looking at you
You find that true love is a dream that everyone wants to come true
Cant you see its up to us to make this dream come true
Yeah! You need love like I do, dont you?
I can tell by the way you look, when Im looking at you - well, well, well
You need love like I do, dont you?
Well It seems like Im looking in the mirror, when Im looking at you
Aint it true, Aint it true, Aint it true, Aint it true, Aint it true,
Yes, its true, yes its true, true, true
You need love like I do, dont you?
I can tell by the way you look, when Im looking at you
You need love like I do, dont you?
Well, it seems like Im looking in the mirror, when Im looking at you
You need love like I do, dont you?
I can tell by the way you look, when Im looking at you,
You need love like I do, dont you?
Well It seems like Im looking in the mirror, when Im looking at you.
Aint it true girl, Im in love, Im in love cause I need you, and I need you too.

Now It's My Turn

You've convinced me to deny who I am
Told me that I couldn't do it
When I figured out that I could you threw me into a pit
Of self pity and self insult, fed me your lies that my talent wasn't there
When I realized the truth that it was all you did was scare
Me into believing that my talent was destructive
Told me I could have self control
Told me I couldn't use this gift to console
But now I finally see through your lies I've seen through them

You were scared, full of fear
You were scared to the point of a dripping tear
You were scared I'd realize my calling
You were scared I'd revoke the statements of mundane
you were scared I'd actually sing
You were scared, and insane

I never once thought that all of these lies were from you
I never thought you spoke to me too
But now it's my turn
The gift you were so scared of here it is
Look now it's His
The gift that I did once spurn
I'll use to destroy your principalities
This is my secondary weapon to fight your powers
I'll draw my inspiration from my sword
I'll holster my regret and low self esteem
You can't tie up with them anymore
I don't believe I'm something to abhor
Now that I see I'm loved you can't tell me who I am
Because it doesn't matter, not because what you say is empty
No, that was me
It doesn't matter because it's not about who I am
It's about who I serve

Send your demons, send your temptations, maybe I'll even fail
Maybe I'll regret these statements, maybe even weep and wail
But it's too late, you can't put me back on your curve
I won't stray from the straight and narrow
This is the path I've chosen to follow
Now you can't touch me
Now you can't touch my poetry
Now I've realized my gift, even if just part, I've realized that part
I've realized why I have all these desires in my deepest heart

So now it's my turn, you used my gift to beat me down
Talked me into misusing it or not using it all
Well now it's your turn
Taste my sword, it's different than my peers
Taste my sword it can lead many
Taste my sword it's greater than me
You know the sting of old Proverbs and Psalms
But now it's my turn

I don't believe the lies because I know who I'm loved by
I don't believe those lies because I know my identity
I don't believe their lies because I believe in something greater
I don't believe your lies, because you're their father
I don't believe your lies, you've already lost

In trying to destroy me, He made me stronger
Now you got yourself one heck of an enemy
I never thought I'd say it, but it's me
Here's a taste of the last days
This is my worship, one day you will feel righteous burn of a billion
But until that day we'll wait
Unfortunately for you it's not passive
It's active
Active waiting
Active seeking
Active worship
Active writing

Because now it's finally my turn
I'll watch you burn
In the advanced darkness
Behind a wall of glass
Watch you, you the iconoclast
I'll expose your lies
This isn't a heart of darkness
This is a heart of light
I'll unwrite your lies
Because now I know
Because now
It's my turn

Even The Nights Are Better

(j.l. wallace, kenneth bell, terry skinner)
I, I was the lonely one
Wondering what went wrong
Why love had gone
And left me lonely
I, I was so confused
Feeling like Id just been used
Then you came to me
And my loneliness left me
I use to think I was tied to a heartache
That was the heartbreak
But now that Ive found you
(chorus)
Even the nights are better
Now that were here together
Even the nights are better
Since I found you
Even the days are brighter
When someone you loves beside you
Even the nights are better
Since I found you
You, you knew just what to do
Cause you had been lonely too
And you showed me how
To ease the pain
And you did more
Than mend a broken heart
Cause now youve made a fire start
And i, I can see that you feel
The same way
I used to think I was tied to a heartache
That was the heartbreak
But now that Ive found you
(repeat chorus)

I never invite you- Broken Heart

In yowling heart-oh-crying heart
You kept haunting-torturing again and again
I'm sat still in chamber-
Yeap! It's long time sitting here
But why I'm setting
Am I waiting for your called-
To accompany you-oh-Broken Heart?
Your keen teeth bit me thousand times every day
You kept sucking my bloods
Oh- Broken Heart- I'm tired of you
Please don't come again.........! ! ! ! !

The Way To Mend A Broken Heart

first get a knife
slice a part of her breast
enough to take
away the bleeding
heart from
her

second get a needle
put the thread

third with the skill
of a dressmaker
mend the broken heart
a little sewing
there and a suture
over there

fourth return
the heart back
to its place

and then you may
leave.

If That's the Path You Are Waiting to Have Cleared

Why have you chosen to climb over those boulders?
And walk your way through the forest,
Instead of following along a trail that has been paved? !

'I chose this as 'my' path!
I wanted to experience...
Those obstacles at my own expense.
To learn and observe as much as I could see.
Without taking it for granted,
I could take advantage of an easier way for me.

And I have no regrets.
How about you? '

I've been waiting now for awhile.
They have discovered an enormous amount of debris,
On my path.

Are you coming 'back' from distances?
Or are you moving along on a journey?

'Well...
I am moving forward,
Hopefully.
There was once a clear path.
I saw some folks on it.
If that's the path you are waiting to have cleared...
To visit or stay...
Or fellowship near.
Best wishes, my 'brutha'.
You got a long wait!

Back there...
Folks like to stay in debate,
As to who should do what...
To get things done!
You should go.

You'll be welcomed and caught up in it,
Before you know it!
That's why I long decided to do my own 'thing'!

Stopping to discuss what action to take...
Is not on my agenda!

Go! Or wait...
Or whatever it is you do!
They will love you!
And they will not believe,
Just how naïve you are! '

I know your ways and sex is all that you need from me,
So be very prepared because i am always ready for you;
And i can see the true love in your eyes!
And i believe this will lead us on forever.

Comfort That You Need

To a good friend in hope that they will listen.

Sometimes we neglect to say things
to the people who really care.
We do it because we want to protect them,
which is not what they want us to do.
Whenever you are hurting
you should tell the ones who care,
because they want to be there
especially for you.
You think that not by telling them
that everything will be OK.
In truth, it hurt them more
when they find out you
were only trying to save their feelings.
They would have rather that you told them
so they could reach out
to give you the comfort that you need.

If You Need To Extend Your Time To Achieve Success; Just Do It!

To bag success, you need to make a sacrifice.
You need to cut nonsense moves; you must pay the price.
Make good plans, just advance and make moves that are nice.
Have a real good mentor and follow his advice.

Finish the project; precious time you can extend.
Important and helpful meetings, always attend.
From big problems and huge trials, you must ascend.
To the successful people, just openly blend.

If you really need to work longer, just do it!
If you really need to train longer, just do it!
If you really need to plan longer, just do it!
If you still need to study longer, just do it!

You Need To Boot That Attitude You've Got

You need,
To dropp your griping down a notch.
You need,
To stop your grouching done a lot.
You need,
To lower that heat and stop...
A rotting rooted you need to block.

You need,
To boot that attitude you've got.
You need,
To find a broom or use a mop...
To clean up all the mess you've dropped.
And prevent the others from sliding in slop.

You need,
To dropp your griping down a notch.
You need,
To stop your grouching done a lot.
You need,
To lower that heat and stop...
A rotting rooted you need to block.

You need,
To boot that attitude you've got.
And find a broom quick or use a mop.
To prevent a needless slip in slop.

Keeping That Faith In Love

when the journey
seems unbearable

you are walking barefoot
on a noonday
desert

no oasis, no palm
no Bedouin in sight to save you

it is just the angry
sun and
you

just the here and
the infinite
over there

you keep faith
in love

you do not ask
why or when
will this suffering end


love has given you
more than enough

overflowing

now it shall take back
what you have
forgotten


what you have taken for
granted


there was once paradise
you were that monkey
sitting over a mountain of gold

your hands have
the power
the spices of life
the opulence of cares
and the
rain of affections
moonlights of
whispers
myriad pleasures and joys
smokes
of hopes to the air
and sky


now it is the desert
the test


keep that faith
at the end of the desert is
the sea


the mountains and rivers
and trees
are just behind you


move

Pass That Dutch

>[Intro]
Listen up everyone! we have been just informed
That there's an unknown virus that's attacking all clubs
Symptoms have been said to be - heaving breathing
Wild dancing, coughing
So when you hear the sound - WHO-DI-WHOOOO!
Run for cover..
WOOOOOO! Ahh daddy! Ooooo! Ah! oh, ooh!
Pass that dutch (ah), pass that dutch (ooh)
Pass that dutch (ah), pass that dutch (ah)
Pass that dutch (ah), pass that dutch (ah)
Pass that dutch (whoo), pass that dutch
[Verse 1]
Misdemeanor on the floor, pretty boy here I come
Pumps in the bunk make you wanna hurt something
I can take your man I don't have to sex em
Hang em out the window call me Micheal Jackson (hehehee!)
I'm a pain in your rectum, I am that bitch y'all slept on
Heavy hitter, rhyme spitter, call me Re-Run
Hey hey hey, I'm what's happ'nin
Hypnotic to get my drink (that's right!)
Shake ya ass till it stink (that's right!)
Mr. Mos' on the beat (that's right!)
Put it down for the streets (that's right!)
[Chorus]
(WHO-DI-WHOOOOOOOOOOOOO!)
Pass that dutch, pass that dutch
Pass that dutch, pass that dutch, pass that dutch
Come on pass the dutch baby! (ahh!)
Shake-shake shake ya stuff ladies!
(WHO-DI-WHOOOOOOOOOOOOO!)
Pass that dutch, pass that dutch
Pass that dutch, pass that dutch
Pop that, pop that, jiggle that fat (ahh!)
Don't stop, get it till ya clothes get wet
[Verse 2]
Number one - drums go bump, bump, bump
This beat here will make you boomp, boomp, jump
If you's a fat one, put your clothes back on
Before you start putting pot holes in my lawn
Oh my God, show em I'm large
Shove my beat up, attack like my name was Saddam
I am the bomb from New York to Milan
And I can write a song sicker than Jeffrey Dahm'
(Woop woop!) Don't touch my car alarm
Break in my car you will hear "Viper Armed"
I've been a superstar since Daddy Kane was raw
I'm live on stage, c'mon and give me some applause [applause]
"Thank you! oh thank you, you all are so wonderful!"
[Chorus]
[Interlude]
Listen up, you have five seconds to catch your breath
Five - four - three - two - one [alarm rings]
[Verse 3]
Pop that, pop that, make that money
Just keep it going, like the Energizer Bunny
Shake that, shake that, move it all around
Spank that, yank that, dutch back now
Freak him, freak her, whatever ya choice
Didn't come to judge, I came to get ya moist
Scream - (WHO-DI-WHOOOOOOO!) now my voice is lost
Can I get a ride on the white horse? [horse neighing]
[Chorus]
[Outro]
Pop that
Pass tha dutch baby!
Jiggle that fat
Don't stop, get it till ya clothes get wet

Stare that world back at me now

your eyes
pull my world through
cool it down
like glacier blue
storm it up
with hurricane howl

stare that world back at me now

Know what, baby?

thanks to you

my world just grew
its
NEW! ! ! ! !

There Was a Heart that Burnt Out: Light

There was a heart that burnt out: light
Light O god, O god light

Flower, perfume, stars, breeze: light
These are your names, no matter how we shape you

When afternoon rose on the evening's horizon
Who was it in my heart who said: light

Now there is no point in adorning the stars
The season of meeting him is gone: light

Dawn broke on a dream in which
I wrote simply by looking: light

The two curses we are trapped between:
How we live in darkness, how we imagine: light

Do You Need The Service?

Do you need the service?
Do you need to call me daily?
Do you have reasons for calling at all?
Is something on your mind?
Is something wrong? I get the feeling
That youre laughing at my quiet surprise
My silhouette is changing
As Im aging by your window
And I focus on a light by your face
Call me 'the operator
Making comments hes so technical
Or Ive absolutely nothing to do
Recycle all my photographs
Ill leave a picture of the queen
And no one has to know I was there
Me, Im so ashamed
Youre all connected to my number
And the conversations only polite
Ill wear my old grey raincoat
Just in case youre 'confidential
Make up stories like the screen fades away
Today its in a taxi
By the station, and its raining
And I wonder how they all made it before

When You treat Me like that

My sweet heart cried out her heart
She said I break her heart
When I treat her like that
She said I made her sad when she caught me on the act
I never knew I could break a heart
Not that of my sweet heart
Now she is parking out of my house.
What can a man do to mend
A broken heart?
I am now alone, all alone in my empty
House, and my empty heart
Or should i say, my broken heart.
It is difficult, very difficult to live
Without her in my heart and my house
These days I drink, day in, day out
I try to forget my sweet heart,
But when I'm sober, there she is, right here in my heart
Her last words to me, 'You break my heart when you treat me lile that, I cant live like that'
She parked and left my house
Now here I am drinking my life out
Here I am crying my heart out.
my sweet heart has broken my heart
When she treat me like that.

Could you be the one for me?

Could you be the one for me?
Could you be my find?
Could it be, after all this time,
Fate is going to be kind?

Could you be the one for me,
The one to help me forget
The man that broke my heart, my soul
The man that haunts me yet?

You tell me that I'm beautiful
Something I've never heard
But the one still lives here in my mind
That couldn't spare a kind word

It's going to be hard to forget
And pick up the pieces he left
Could you be the one to teach
How to love again and forget?

Could you be the one to come
And mend my broken heart?
Are you willing to piece together
What another broke apart?

It won't be an easy job, you see
My road has been long and rough
And the heart that was once so soft
Is now shut, locked, and tough

But I can feel my heart open again
It's opening for you
Just come in, and love me back
That's all you have to do

I must ask you one small thing
Before we kiss and part
Please be nice and kind to me
I'm tired of broken hearts
