You're Not Drinkin' Enough

I can see that you haven't recovered from
The girl who let you down
And you'd sell what is left of your soul for
Another go-round
You keep telling yourself she means nothing
And maybe you should call her bluff
But you don't really believe it
You must not be drinking enough
Well, the perfume she wore you can buy
Down at the five & dime
But on some other woman
It don't smell the same in your mind
You keep telling yourself you can take it-
Telling yourself that you're tough
But you still wanna hold here
You must n ot be drinkin' enough
You're not drinking enough
To wash away old memories
And there ain't enough whiskey in texas to
Keep you from beggin' ,"please, please, please."
She passed on your passion
And stepped on your pride
Turns out you ain't quite so tough
'cause you still wanna hold her
You must not be drinkin' enough
Ay-yi-yi-yi
Ask yourself why
You still wanna hold her
You must no be drinkin' enough
Ay-yi-yi-yi, etc.......

You're Not Drinkin' Enough

(Kortchmar)
I can see that you havn't recovered
From the girl who let you down
You would sell what is left of your soul
For another go 'round.
You keep telling yourself she means nothing
Maybe you should call her bluff
But if you don't really mean it
You must not be drinking enough.
Well, the perfume she wore
You can buy down at the five and dime
But on some other woman
It don't smell the same in your mind.
You keep telling yourself you can take it
You tell yourself that you're tough
But if you still want to hold her
You must not be drinking enough.
You're not drinking enough,
To wash away old memories
And there ain't enough whiskey in Texas
To keep you from beggin', please, please, please.
She passed on your passion, stepped on your pride
It turns out you ain't quite so tough
'Cause you still want to hold her
You must not be drinking enough.
You heard this grown man cry
You ask yourself why
'Cause you still want to hold her
You must not be drinking enough.
Ay - yi - yi - yi
Ask yourself why
You still wanna hold her
You must no be drinkin' enough...

Funny Commercials, Damn

television screens gave birth to me
I want emancipation

a blood aqueduct above my hands
I need help
but the game is on

eyes on legs and hands and
bad calls
and I am feeling light headed

my fragmented heart made so
by cruel, beautiful lips

what should I do?

wait, honey, it's almost commercial

a cryogenic heart left asunder
soul made of concrete

no summer day embrace for this child
of sitcoms

nothing left to do but sell what is left
of my soul

bring the popcorn

No-one See's You In The Rain

no-one see's you in the rain,
it's the perfect way to get lost,
no-one see's you in the rain,
you can cry and no-one can see the cost,
no-one see's you in the rain,
you could die and you just get washed away,
no-one see's you in the rain,
so let it rain every day.

I See That 'You' You Are

You may not need me,
Now.
Like you will.
Or,
Can say what you feel,
Now.
But somehow...
I know.

And that which I know...
No longer do I question,
Reasons why or how I do!

I know...
Your life lived is not a gift picked,
From a grab bag.
To exchange for something wished,
That is better than what you have.
And comparing your life...
Brings to you an unwanted sadness.
I know this.

I know...
You have been selected for a test.
And to pass it wont be easy.

I know...
Not too many can accept,
This gift that they get.
And they choose to disrespect it.
To leave it neglected.
Desperate is the grieving...
That becomes reflected.

And I know...
Those tempestuous storms,
One expects when clouds appear.
Come along to cleanse you,
From ills and evil.
Dispensed around you to endear!

When they come...
Do not hold them near.
Wish them away to disappear.

But you must cling onto faith without fail.
You can,
You must and will prevail!
To triumph and conquer,
Over your disturbing mental turbulence.

You may not need me,
Now.
Like you will.
Or,
Can say what you feel,
Now.
But somehow...
I know.

I know!
Because I see that 'you' you are...
In me!
And I am not about to go,
To leave you alone to suffer.
That...
I am not going to allow!
Like I did...
Before I saw the me in you.

You Dont Feel The Same

(carly simon)
Honey, I dont want you to see me this way
So out of control
So carried away
cause you dont feel the same
And I remember times when I was your storm
I blew hot and cold
And you were so warm
But, now you dont feel the same
I remember when you were looking up at me
Like I was the only one
That youd ever wanna see
Honey, how can I ask you to stay
When youre already gone
Theres no one to blame
Its just that you dont feel the same
I touch you
Your eyes look away
Your hands are cold
The balance has changed
And darling, you dont feel
Honey, you dont feel
No, you dont feel the same

if you are on the same boat with me. Come.

as you read these lines
(let me tell you, there is nothing
significant, and i may advise you
to quit and may even ask
that you write your own
instead
it may be good for you
than continue to read
on the next line...

why not write
something about yourself and the
full moon and the lonely tree
that needs badly a
good company to pass the dark
night away)

why not just be
on your own,
solitude and self-introspection?
the secret journey to your heart
looking for
the place that is only for you

happiness, right?
eternal bliss, how about it?

you are curious about my boredom
the ennui of the century
perhaps you like to know how i deal
with the numbness of my being

every night every day
when slowly i die and feel so excited
about ending this ordeal and

how i cope with it

yes, the it.
this it. my it. this self....

attempting on
writing lines

whatever lines that come into my mind
words that try to please my senses
symbols that give me hope
figures of gods who may be able to say
something wise and
inspiring,
images. lots of images...

the image of the wind
on the wings of the seagulls

the colors changing on the horizon
like a swab of orange and red and black
or blood

or pastel green on the shadows of the hills
or the brightness of the sun when i stare at it and hurt my eyes
and then i close them
and see this world as all red
bursting red
like a sunset coming
and then fading away like a song
of a flute faraway


i wish i could stop writing
i wish that i could get a nice sleep
a restive mind
a peaceful state
a harmony of all my sense
up and down

but nothing seems to work right for me
i tried to sing the songs of love
but my ears say

liar! you do not have love in your heart
you do not know the feeling anymore

i tried drawing my thoughts and putting bright colors
on the images of green fields and blues skies
and stars and even seven moons of the other planets
but always they end up so displeasing

i am looking for the meaning of my life and if you are
on the same boat with me
then come and take the ride
on the stormy sea
no lamplight
no island to land
no north star to guide us


i ask you to quit reading but you are just like me
hardheaded human being insisting that there is meaning to all these
and the inability to stop
and be a quitter

quieter, i mean.
hopefully.

in the silence of the cat's feet
cautiously catching another prey
let me stop now. quit me.

Look at the sky. Do you see stars?

Can't You See Do You Even Care

Can't you see that this is killing me.
Do you even care.
I don't know what to think any more.
All I know is that this killing me.
My pain no one knows but me.
It's killin me little by little.
More and more.
Day by day.
Its taking me.
Theres nothing left
One day it'll be too late.
You'll wake up in the morning and I'll be gone.

Just To See (If You're There)

hands of coal,
back bent with time...
eyes that play tricks,
and ears that need help.

pictures of memories hidden
behind lips terse and still.
stories wrapped in stories,
no one listens to anymore.

the ghosts of love walking
the floors of an empty house...
eat a little, stare out the window,
read the obituaries just to see

if you're there!

All I See Is You

When I close my eyes
all I see is you,
youre on my mind
the whole night through.

I wish something else
would take your place,
but all I see is you
and your smiling face.

I cant understand
after all this time
why your still here
in my mind.

I know we’re finished
and you moved on,
but memories remain
and you havent gone.

See Through You

===========
The power of menace is the spirit of an age
Without doubt
Without prejudice & shame
I see through you
I see through you
There's no reward without suffering
He who has nothing
Has everything to gain
I see through you
I see through you
I see through you
Without doubt
Without prejudice & shame
I see through you
He who has nothing
Has everything to gain
I see through you

My Feelings For You Remain the Same

After all that has been said and done,
My feelings for you remain the same.

'Sooo...
That's a relief.
I too have changed.
I am glad you have forgiven me! '

Who is talking about forgiveness?
Didn't I just say...
After all that has been said and done,
My feelings for you remain the same.

You're going to have to do,
Some jumping through some hoops!
Roll over, bark!
And make me a good cup of coffee.
Hop on one leg...
And beg in Chinese!

'But I don't know any Chinese.'

LIES!
We use to have it once a week.
You use to order the 'Goo Goo..
AND the Wonton with the General Tso.
Who do you think you're fooling?
You haven't changed at all.

You Are What You See If You Want To Be

In a symphony of harmony and muted voices
Where what makes your life is a matter of opinion
Where love conquers all and death has no dominion
There are no answers only your choices

Some blame can be placed on disco mania
Or the yuppies created from Reaganomics
Crack taking folks higher than aeronautics
And pop stars rhyming with schizophrenia

On front lawns dawns the day’s complications
This is so common and thus is much proper
Where you can make more cake than Betty Crocker
Must not cheap with the conversations

You are what you see if you want to be
Legendary gallant or the infamous
Legendary valance of the incubus
There’s always 2 ways to travel 1 street

You Can Take The Wings Off Me

(t. seals, e. setser)
Now Ive never been in with the fast crowd
Ive never been closer than just a little over the line
I know those nights Id find great temptations
I go home to bed alone
Pull the covers up over my mind
I let it go by and said Id save my feelings
But until I met you
I hardly used them at all
I should say no
Oh whoah I dont want to
Honey you will be the first one
To watch this angel fall
So you can take the wings off me
Lay them down so carefully
Hold me close tonight youll see
I am yours and you can take the wings off me
Oh you can take the wings off me
Oh lay them down so carefully
Oh I should say no
Oh whoah I dont want to
I am yours and you can take the wings off me

The Same Deep Water As You

Kiss me goodbye
Pushing out before i sleep
Can't you see i try
Swimming the same deep water as you is hard
"the shallow drowned lose less than we"
You breathe the strangest twist upon your lips
"and we shall be together..."
"kiss me goodbye bow your head and join with me"
And face pushed deep reflections meet
The strangest twist upon your lips and dissapear
The ripples clear and laughing break
Against your feet and laughing break the mirror sweet
"so we shall be together..."
"kiss me goodbye" pushing out before i sleep
It's lower now and slower now the strangest
Twist upon your lips but i don't see and i dont
Feel but tightly hold up silently my hands
Before my fading eyes and in my eyes your
Smile the very last thing before i go...
I will kiss you i will kiss you i will kiss you
Forever on nights like this i will kiss you i will
Kiss you and we shall be together...

The Same Old You

Yeah I remember you back in 72
With your david bowie hair and your platform shoes
A part-time job, sellin fast food
But out on the street you were nobodys fool
Baby way down deep its the same old you
Way down deep you aint hiding the truth
Just for a minute you had me fooled
Baby way down deep its the same old you
Well you can walk through the city on fire
You can try and turn away from the truth
Living life like a young politician
Sure of yourself and bullet-proof
But baby,
Way down deep its the same old you
Way down deep you aint hiding the truth
Just for a minute you had me confused
Baby way down deep its the same old you
We could buy a 62 cadillac
Put a fender amplifier in the back
Drive straight to the heart of america
Turn up to ten, let that sucker blast
Baby way down deep its the same old you
Way down deep you aint hiding the truth
Just for a minute you had me fooled
Baby way down deep its the same old you

See, If You Can......

See, if you can really see
The wilderness of history
The paths leading to Macedonia are dust-engulfed
' Alexanders of Fate' have vanished
The reverbrating footfalls
Around the nail of Konya
Are now reduced to lifeless echoes of a timeless moment
No dervish has stamina left in his spinning heel
Brightly lit up streaks have dimmed
Serial dances have all been obliterated
Eagles swoop down over Baghdad
The sharp edge of Damascus weapons are now blunt

See, if you can really see
The depths of your dreams
Have growing forests of poison-besmeared eyes
In place of a throbbing heart
Striped snakes of the New World
Now live in the ancient edifices
resting on pillars of Corinth
And the ancient iron boxes of secret treasures
kept in the magic cave
Have no red coins left
Only dollars!

See, if you can.........

All I See Is You

(clive westlake / ben wiesman)
I tried so hard
All summer through
Not to think too much of you
But the more I try
The more I find
I just cant leave the past behind
Times that are happy
Are times that are few
And once I was happy
When I had you
But days have come and gone
Since you were here
Nights are twice as long
Without you near
Pictures on my mind
Stand out so clear
No matter where I am
Or what I do
My darling
All I see is you
Youre there in every dream
I ever dream
There at every place
Ive ever been
Everyday I find
Youre in my heart
And on my mind
I close my eyes
But Im not blind
I see you still
And when I throw my arms out wide
I find that youre not by my side
But one thing is for sure
Until I do
All I see is you
Everyday I find
Youre in my heart
And on my mind
I close my eyes
But Im not blind
I see you still, oh
I wont live again
til Im with you
Oh, darling
I wont love again
Unless its with you
So until the day
When you are back with me to stay
In every way
All I see is you

My Mind Is On You

(dave loggins, don schlitz)
We had a fight
A lovers quarrel
Angry words spoken in haste
Deep in the night
It went out of control
And with tears streaming down my face
I slammed the door and I walked out
Swearing that we were through
Now Im sitting in a bar
Thinking Ive gone too far
Wondering what Im gonna do
Thinking about calling you
Chorus:
To my left blue collar
To my right a high dollar man
Across the bar a smooth bartender
Who thinks Im in the palm of his hand
Well they buy me drinks
Light my cigarette
Theyre all wondering which one Im gonna choose
Oh my hands on my glass
My second margarita
And my mind is on you
My mind is on you
Well I ran away
In a moment of weakness
I couldnt hold my own
I should stay
Because being together
Means more than who was right or wrong
And sitting in a room full of lonely faces
Youre the only one I see
If you only knew
I was thinking of you
Would you come and rescue me
Maybe I should call and see
Repeat chorus
(my third margarita)
I should of known I could never get along
Outside of your love
Its last call
And Im out of cigarettes
They are all wondering what Im gonna do
Oh my hands on the glass
Its my last margarita
And my mind is on you
My mind is on you
My mind is on you
