Over The Sea

Id write you a letter,
But who knows where it would go?
Something sad and hopeless
Tells me what I know.
And if I left you by yourself,
Who knows what you would do?
Something tall and mindless
Lets you walk right through.
Call you over the sea.
When will you come,
Come back to me?
Coming back for one more week
Of what I have to do.
Neverending changes.
Everything is new.
Id write you a letter,
But who knows where it would go?
Something sad and hopeless
Tells me what I know.
Call you over the sea.
When will you come,
Come back to me?

Right Through You

Wait a minute man
You mispronounced my name
You didn't wait for all the information
Before you turned me away
Wait a minute sir
You kind of hurt my feelings
You see me as a sweet back-loaded puppet
And you've got meal ticket taste

I see right through you
I know right through you
I feel right through you
I walk right through you

You took me for a joke
You took me for a child
You took a long hard look at my ass
And then played golf for a while
Your shake is like a fish
You pat me on the head
You took me out to wine dine 69 me
But didn't hear a damn word I said

I see right through you
I know right through you
I feel right through you
I walk right through you

Hello Mr. Man
You didn't think I'd come back
You didn't think I'd show up with my army
And this ammunition on my back
Now that I'm Miss Thing
Now that I'm a zillionaire
You scan the credits for your name
And wonder why it's not there

I see right through you
I know right through you
I feel right through you
I walk right through you

One More Night With You

(wade hayes/don cook/chick rains)
I go to the job every morning
I work like a dog for my pay
My mind and body aches
It takes two coffee breaks
Top get me to the end of the day
I do what I do
Cause I know when Im through
I get one more night with you
I hate this old five oclock freeway
Getting home always takes so long
Traffic moves too slow
With a busted radio
I cant even find a country song
But this roads gonna end and im
Gonna spend
One more night with you
Thats all I care about
I wouldnt wanna live without
Knowin that youre waiting
There for me
I dont care what we do
The same old thing or something new
As long as I know theres gonna be
One more night with you
I hate to waste the time I spend sleepin
I wake up tired from the day before
All I gotta do is think about you
I grab my hat and Im running out the door
Pretty soon Im punchin in
And I do it all again for
One more night with you
Thats all I care about
I wouldnt wanna live without
Knowin that youre waiting
There for me
I dont care what we do
The same old thing or something new
As long as I know theres gonna be
One more night with you
One more night with you

Come Out To Play

He used to think that it was neat
When he hung out on the street
Now that its his daily beat, hes not so sure
Cause hes come to depend
On a street with a dead end
And hell sell you his best friend, so he can score
(chorus
Boys and girls come out to play
The junk mans on the streets to say
Hell make your dreams feel real today
And steal your minds tomorrow
Now his thoughts dont seem so clear
His whole life is filled with fear
His habit cost him dear in every way
His girl cant take the heat
But his friends all cross the street
Still the needle keeps him sweet
If he can pay for one more day
His bones have got no meat
Hes unsteady on his feet
And he doesnt get to eat, not every day
What started out for kicks
Has become a daily fix
And his girlfriends turning tricks to pay his way
(chorus)
Boys and girls come out to play
The junk mans on the streets to say
Hell make your dreams feel real today
And steal your minds tomorrow

Slow Down

might slow down for a bit
i'm sick of all the same old $(-) ! +
time and time again it ends
time and time again

i'm bored
and horny and i think i need a smoke
but i'm broke
hearing the sound of a g-chord
life is a joke so

might slow down for a bit
sick of all the same old $(-) ! +
time and time again it ends
time and time again

guess and check to roll with the punches
arrogant in our morbid hunches
if i can last for one more season
i'll have a reason to keep believing

might slow down a bit
sick of all the same old $(-) ! +
time and time again it ends
time and time again

Are You Trying To Convince Me

Are you trying to convince me
that kindness does no good?
That no good deed will go unpunished,
that I should do a good deed and duck,
that trying to love and understand you as a friend,
give more than you dared to ask, have the power,
but not use it to reply to you in kind
when I pull the sacred syllable
like a pin out of my heart
and hold it tightly in my hand
like a white phos grenade I don't dare let go of
because this starlight's so blue and hot
it can burn right through your skin like the Pleiades?

You rage pre-emptively as if in everything
you were defending yourself vehemently
against some bootcamp of an injustice
your childhood went to to learn how
to stand up for yourself even when you're in the wrong.
Do unto others before they do
what you imagine reflexively
they're about to do unto you.
I get that. So many times I've blunted
the edge of the sword on the rock of the heart
I drew it from, bent its blade for the grave,
tempered it in a trough of hot tears
I shed like a dragon for what you
had suffered alone at the hands of those
who were supposed to love you
but always seemed to find a way
to bungle it in the second act
of a tragicomedy for angry tricksters.

So I've treated you like a dove
in maculate feathers for the last ten years
and stood down like a scarecrow
whenever you lured me away from my watch
to amend the commotion of a lapwing.
I've been a good friend to you in all things.
There when you called. Generous
when you needed, streetwise wolf doctor
when you asked for an oracle
to howl at the moon with you
in an agony of unanswered wounds.
And I know it's hard to be proud
and grateful at the same time
as if needing someone's help
as we all do, were conceding
to a weakness in the hill fort of your vulnerability.
So I'd put out the white flag
from my window first to make sure
you didn't have to conceive of surrendering first.

Anyway when you walked in just now
fuming like a star mass
of inflammable hydrogen gas
I was feeling like a firefly
for the first time in a long time
remotely at home in the universe
as it went off in my face like the Big Bang.

One moment I'm on an endless firewalk
following the signs the stars left me
to catch up in my own good time
and the next I'm listening to an arsonist
make up alibis in her own interrogation room.

And I'm asking God, after you return me
like a splinter of my former radiance
that won't wash out of my third eye
because it's lodged like a nail in a jellyfish
candling like a parachute in its own tentacles,
to the relentless intensity of my abysmal solitude,
thinking hard, hot, flashy thoughts
that cut like the sabres of a meteor shower
through the ionically charged upper atmosphere
where my spiritual aspirations inflate
like weather balloons disguised as ufos
even as my demonic descents back to earth
are making a big impact on an extinct species.

God, I say, apostate, heretical, or demonic
I may be. Do ut abeas. But I didn't ask you
anything back for this kindness I do left-handedly
not to ameliorate doing my time standing up
nor as an infernal sacrament on the altar of hell
that rebels like a lion lying down with the lamb,
but just to put a smile on the absurdity of it all
as if there were no harm in trying it your way occasionally
by stopping the war between
ceremony and the sanctimonious
long enough to remember we're all
dying of one thing or another in the same lifeboat
floundering on this fathomless night sea
of shoreless awareness we're all immersed
over our heads in like the tears of the unblessed.

You stayed right through the night

You stayed right through the night,
you were sweet beautiful and fair
and up to the next morning light
you were with without a single care.

With the first light you had to go away
while I heard your heart beating from under your breast
but you lingered on that day
and with your love I were truly blest.

I asked you to be my bride,
as in loving we could not be celibate
and you accepted with pride
to be much more than my bedmate.

Now every morning it's you beautiful eyes that I see
and as long as I live
you will probably accompany me
as my lovely beautiful wife.

Should I Let You In

Should I let you in
Into my house with its concrete walls
Should I let you in
Into my room with its curtains drawn
I want to open up
And let you walk right through my door
Can you tell me
Is it worth
The risk anymore
Should I let you in ?
Should I let you in ?
Should I let you in ?
Should I let you in ?
Should I let you in
Into my far from perfect place
Should I let you see
Where I keep my secrets safe
I want to open up
But Ive been hurt this way before
Can you tell me
Is it worth the risk anymore ?
Should I let you in ?
Through my window
I see you now
Youre looking in
Im looking out
My heart will make up its mind somehow
Should I let you in into my house
Should I let you in inside these walls
Should I let you in into my heart
Should I let you in inside my world
Should I let you in ?
Should I let you in ?
Should I let you in ?

Little More Time With You

Notes:
Jt on sony.com: yer love jones.
Gotta watchdog watching me
Watching me packing my bags
He knows Im leaving town
I can see that its a drag
Why leave the life I love
Here in the great state of maine
Just to ride that shining rail
Just to size that ball and chain
Gotta spend just a little more time with you
Thats why
Gotta spend just a little more time with you
Oh oh oh
Gotta spend just a little more time with you
Yes I do, yes I do
Gotta spend just a little more time with you
Oh oh oh oh oh
I passed on the cocaine
Said bye-bye to my methadone
Put down the bottle for one more day
Backing off of my tobacco jones
Still I feel like a hopeless junkie
Like a man who cant say no
I look back and theres that monkey
Rascal wont let go
Gotta spend just a little more time with you
I get high and I cant come down
I get high just hanging around
I get high, I go lost and found
I get high oh I oh i
Gotta spend just a little more time with you

I Lay My Love On You (Single Re-mix)

Just a smile and the rain is gone
Can hardly believe it (yeah)
There's an angel standing next to me
Reaching for my heart
Just a smile and there's no way back
Can hardly believe it (yeah)
But there's an angel and she's calling me
Reaching for my heart
I know, that I'll be ok now
This time it's real
(Chorus)
I lay my love on you
It's all I wanna do
Every time I breathe
I feel brand new
You open up my heart
Show me all your love, and walk right through
As I lay my love on you
I was lost in a lonely place
Could hardly believe it (yeah)
Holding on to yesterdays
Far, far too long
Now I believe it's ok cause
This time it's real
Repeat Chorus
I never knew that love could feel so good
Like a once in a lifetime
You change my world
I lay my love on you
You make me feel brand new
Show me your love and walk right through
As I lay my love on you
Chorus
I lay my love on you
You make me feel brand new
Show me all your love and walk right through
As I lay my love on you
As I lay my love on you

As You Stare Right Through Me

Love is an illusion, a myth,
Its all compromises I shouted,
I have had my chances with love,
This heart ain't falling for anyone again,
Love is an illusion, a myth.

Its easy to break hearts,
Hearts of stone or hearts of broken glass,
The poet nurses all his wounds in silence,
But poetry flows out unabated,
The emotions need a release after all

I shout in the silence of the times,
The emptiness of dark nights,
Railing against the travesty of life,
That yet again I fall for someone,
A someone who stares right through me

I immortalize you through poetry,
Yet broken verses reveal no names,
And as you smile at the world,
I just keep gazing at you,
As I can't see anyone prettier around.

If you could be mine,
I would walk along till the end of time,
Make you the heroine of epic tales,
Partner in stories of legendary fun,
Lazy days, busy days, rainy days, sunny days

But you are also the heart breaker,
Pretending not to see the obvious,
When I hang onto every word you say,
For the most painful thing is seeing you,
Oblivious as you stare right through me,
Like I am a ghost who isn't even there.

(One More) Song For You

Da, da, da
I'm sittin' here and don't know what to do
just sittin' here and don't know what to do
there's nobody here I could ask how to do
just me and myself and nobody else
Although you're not, you're not here with me
I can hear your voice, speakin' to me
and when I close my eyes I can see your face
I know exactly what you're (just) about to say
Chorus:
And if I just write 'bout what's going on inside
like you said I should try
right from the bottom of my heart
And if I just write 'bout what's going on inside
what I have on my mind
right from the bottom of my heart
then there must be one more song for you
must be one more song for you
Da, da, da
It seems that I'm sittin' here now for days
already now I feel their critical gaze on me
what would I give for just one damn word
but it's just me and myself and nobodyelse
Chorus:
So if I just write 'bout what's going on inside
like you said I should try
right from the bottom of my heart
if I just write 'bout what's goin' on inside
what I have on my mind
right from the bottom of my heart
then there will be one more song for you
will be one more song for you
Maybe it's the way you look at me (look at me)
maybe it's the way your smile makes me feel (make me feel)
maybe it's the way you walk beside me (makes me)
well something, somehow makes me so sure
well something, somehow makes me
wanna just write 'bout what's goin' on inside
like you said I should try
right from the bottom of my heart
if I just write 'bout what's goin' on inside
like you said I should try
right from the bottom of my heart
and if I just write 'bout what's goin' on inside
what I have on my mind
right from the bottom of my heart
if I just write 'bout what's goin' on inside
what I have on my mind
right from the bottom of my heart
then there must be one more song for your
must be one more song for you
will be one more song for you
should be one more song for you
this is one more song for you
ooh god are you sure that I deserve it
ooh god I dont care if I deserve it
but let there follow, but let there follow
so much more
I'm sure there will follow, I'm sure there will follow
so much more songs
Da, da, da

A Flower To You

Many for me, to write
I have thoughts to share
Just I think to write
what I write
flower of love! I give myself to you.

I have to many dreams as you
and wish to write the flower given to you
why you try to kiss it?
the flower I given you
watching the day with sun
walking the way with funs
hoping the way of God
one more for you and one more for me
I watch from here god may come with me
a burning dream still with me
with at hours how I will dream a new dream
something wonder for one more new world
just keep this dream with you
and never kiss this flower
I given to you God

Prove It To You One More Time Again

Nobodys blamin you.
Dont get me wrong.
I know so many things you done for me.
But you got your life that you gotta live
And Ill get along.
I just wonder who you wanted me to be.
And I just cant believe that you still dont believe in me
Or hold a clue to who I am.
I just hope to God that I still got the heart to take it
And prove it to you one more time again.
So many lies weve told so many times
Maybe its too late to make it love again
If we got a choice then we gotta chance
We gotta try
And do the story true right to the end.
And I cant believe that you still dont believe in me
And you still dont understand me
I just hope to God that I still got the heart to take it
And prove it to you one more time again.

You and I...Could Give Love One More Try

How many wrongs have you known before?
How many times have you said,
No more to love.
And it was love you needed?

How many wrongs have you known before?
How many times have you said,
No more to love.
And it was love you needed?

I've been there myself as well.
I have said to 'go to hell' and cried!
Inside I knew I lied.
I wanted to die!

How many wrongs have you known before?
How many lies had you heard...
Before the door you opened closed,
And you stood there to pace the floor.
Feeling never you would ever trust again?
I have been there before.
And will again,
I'm sure.
Since I know I understand your heart!

How many wrongs have you known before?
How many times have you said,
No more to love.
And it was love you needed?

I've been there myself as well.
I have said to 'go to hell' and cried!
Inside I knew I lied.
I wanted to die!
But you and I...
Could give love,
One more try!

My Joy You Cannot Squish

My Joy You Cannot Squish
I am a joyful being, some say I have too much of it
I love a smile, a joke, a gag, smirk of irony,
the ache of a well laughed tummy
Chuckle as I go to and fro down life roads
singing Zippity Doo Dah, some halleluiahs
I chortle with the crows, I don’t care who knows

Laugh to yourself if you wish
My joy you cannot squish
A few Ebenezer’s have tried
On the rubble pile of former contacts they dwell
Joy is something to embrace no matter the consequence

On and on joy goes from trail to trail with me
For to quit joy would hold amiss a notion that
Eeyore was the leader or the band,
ridiculous we all know that was Tigger
with his joyous bounce and exuberance!

Pashaw me if you wish
My joy you cannot squish
Life’s rotten deeds have tried
I looked past that day chose joy for all time
Joy comes from choice to love your life each day
despite the rocks in the motorway


I like to say those who matter don’t mind so love
them and those who mind too
Bird in the hand is grand, I like the one in the bush too
If the glass is half full, fill it up and share
There’s always room for one more, his friend too
Joy To the World let heaven and nature sing, loudly

Cast this aside if you wish
My joy you cannot squish
Circumstance gave it a try
I want to be a soul that finds joy where invisible
leave it behind where I go along my path
falling off me like a joyful
dander not to be scrubbed

Let joy come in, I promise you’ll find it contagious
Spreading a joy plague through the circles of your life
Could be your new calling for healing
Bounce like Tigger, chortle with the feathered
Sing a little Zippity Doo Dah, Joy to the World
Fill up the glass and share, walk with me a while
Don’t squish your own joy, for your life there awaits
a wonderful view
you
full of joy

Every Attribute You Have Has Been Bought

When I met you in that darkened room,
I just didn't realise,
That all I'd feel was heartbreak and gloom,
For peering into those eyes.

You looked just like a beauty queen,
Standing seductively over the bar,
The most gorgeous woman I'd ever seen,
A glistening beautiful star.

I may have had too much to drink,
But that didn't spoil my view,
In fact it inspired me to think,
My desire was to be with you.

How could a guy be so lucky in love,
It must be my ability to disarm,
What I'm seeing is a gift from above,
Full of good looks and charm.

At that point I seen my future laid out,
We would never again be apart,
I knew it was love so I let out a shout,
You have taken over my heart.

How could a guy be so lucky in life,
Meeting someone as beautiful as you,
Instantly I knew that she'd be my wife,
That would be done without further ado.

She would make me a perfect partner,
The drink must have given me that thought,
In the darkness I told her, you're perfect,
A body like yours can't be bought

I asked her if she'd share some time with me,
She didn't even put up a fight,
When she came over and said, yes I'm free.
I knew then I'd done something right.

We both laughed and danced the night away,
I knew we were made for each other,
Very soon I knew I would say,
I'd love you to meet my Mother.

At the end of the night I asked her home,
Surprisingly my beauty said yes,
I went to the mens room for a wash and a comb,
What came next was anyone's guess.

We went back to her flat instead of mine,
At the time I just didn't ask why,
The way she looked had me on cloud nine,
Just the thought of it all made me cry.

She wouldn't allow me to turn on the light,
Of her reasons I just wasn't aware,
If I had I'd probably have died of fright,
But at the time I just didn't care.

We then made out in every room,
Exhausted we both fell asleep,
We knew next day our passion would resume,
That was a promise we'd keep.

You were to be my future partner in crime,
My beauty I'd finally caught,
The angels were ensuring I had a good time,
A body like yours can't be bought.

Next day off came the wig and eyelashes,
Her make up and then her false teeth,
The daylight exposed all her rashes,
All this while I'm lying underneath.

She told me she was going to powder her nose,
Doing my make up just never fails,
I thought what else can this lady expose,
As I sat on her pack of false nails.

The botox was wearing off at this point,
Her wrinkles were there to be seen,
I said to myself, I'm out of this joint,
In truth I'm no longer so keen.

At this point the implants fell out of her chest,
They were splattered all over the floor,
I thought my God that's what I caressed,
At that point I made for the door.

She asked me for one more lingering kiss,
Like the one I had given her last night,
I said sorry darling but I'll give that a miss,
In sobriety you've given me a fright.

This story is told straight from the heart,
Be happy with what God's given you,
Or very soon you'll be falling apart,
It's your surgeon you'll be wanting to sue.

I knew then I'd made a major gaffe,
It made me feel really distraught,
She said lets make out, I said you're having a laugh,

‘' Every Attribute You Have Has Been Bought‘'

I just want one more day with you

I'm so sad and depressed
Is all I want to do is rest
I go to sleep at night
But my dreams I just can't fight

I think of you lying in that bed(chest)
And wonder if there is anything I could have said
I wish you were still here
But I know that you are still near
but I feel your hot breathing is my face,

I love you more than you know
I just wish you didn't have to go
I say to you stay with me stay with me
I just want one more day with you
And I know thats what you would have wanted too

I miss you more and more each and everyday
There is so much more we had to say
I know I will see you again
But my life is just started to begin.

Softly As I Leave You

(words & music by devita - shaper)
Softly (softly)
I will leave you (I will leave you softly)
Softly (softly)
For my heart would break (for my heart would break)
If you should wake (if you should wake)
And see me go (and see me go)
So I leave you (so I leave you)
Softly (softly)
Long before you miss me (long before you miss me)
Long before your arms can beg me stay (long before your arms can beg me stay)
For one more hour (for one more hour)
For one more day (for one more day)
After all the years (after all the years)
I cant bare the tears (I cant bare the tears)
To fall (to fall)
So softly, (so softly) so softly
(I will leave you there)
I will leave you
I will leave you there

Walk Right In

Walk right in and sit right down, daddy, let your mind roll on.
Youd better walk right in and stay a little while, daddy, you cant stay too long.
Now everybodys talkin bout your new way of walkin,
Do you wanna lose your mind ?
Lord, walk right in and sit right down, daddy, let your mind roll on.
Walk right in and sit right down, and daddy, let your hair hang low.
Youd better walk right in and stay a little while, daddy, you can stay too long.
Now everybodys talkin bout a new way of walkin,
Do you wanna lose your mind ?
Lord, walk right in and sit right down, daddy, let your mind roll on.
Walk right in and sit right down, daddy, let your mind roll on.
Youd better walk right in and stay a little while, daddy, you cant stay too long.
Now everybodys talkin bout a two-way woman,
Do you wanna lose your mind ?
Youd better walk right in, sit right down, daddy, let your mind roll on!!!

Don't Wanna Spend One More Christmas Without You

This is the time of year, that we learn to give
And the greatest gift is learning to forgive.
We will have the best that time we ever knew
If you forgive me and I forgive you
Chorus :
I don't want to light a fire
Unless it will warm your heart
I'm playin no holiday songs
I need you to sing your part
And baby if I could have just one wish come true
I don't wanna spend one more Christmas (without you)
It's so hard to believe
We're staring at the end
When all we think about is starting up again
Whatever we lost, when we were apart
We'll find it all alone in the dark
[Chorus]
There's nothing more that I want from you
Then to lie here together
And stay here forever with you
There's no one I ever knew
That I wanted to spend Christmas with, more than you
[Chorus] x 2
I don't wanna spend one more Christmas
I don't wanna spend one more Christmas
I don't wanna spend one more Christmas without you
