This Way

 We all have regrets...I wrote this song one night while pondering over mine....

I'm taking this time/ To reflect all the things that are in my head/I'm finding it hard/ To forget my regrets and put them all to rest/ Maybe someday/ The powers that be will take them all away/But for now I'll Just go on This way/ It seems when you're down/The people that you know are never around/ You're sitting at home/And suddenly you're feeling all alone/ Maybe they're right/Just put this all behind you and get on with your life/But for now I'll Just go on This way/ Something's wrong/ It's been too long/ I'm just not strong/ To go on feeling this way/ Feeling this way/How long will this last/ That's another question that I always ask/ The answer to find/ Is looking for a quarter in a room full of dimes/ All that I know Is that I'll never ever trust another soul/ And for now I'll Just go on This way/ Yeah for now I'll Just go on This way

Thirty

 I wrote this song on my 30th Birthday. For some, turning 30 is just the beginning...For me, it felt like the end....

It can wait until tomorrow/ I can wait another day/ 29 years of waiting/ And I still haven't found my way/ And when someone asks me what went wrong/ I turn 30 today/ Chasing dreams has led me nowhere/ Nowhere and afraid/ Regrets that I have to live with/ For the choices that I've made/ And when someone asks me what went wrong/ I turned 30 today/ I turned 30 today/ I never thought I'd see the day/ My life is passing me by/ Faster than I can fly/ I live my biggest fear/ I've wasted all my years/ And when the sun comes up tomorrow/ And it brings us a new day/ I'll still/ Feel cold and empty/ Like a saddened widow's grave/ And when someone asks me what went wrong/ I turned 30 today/ And when someone asks me what went wrong/ I turn and walk away/ I turn and walk away/ I turn and walk away

Beyond the Great Big Sky

A song about curiosity....

I've been thinking/ Why are we all living/ What are we doing on this earth/ Why do we have legs to walk/ How come birds have wings to fly/ What's beyond the great big sky/ Do you have an answer or an explanation as to/ What's beyond the great big sky/ Heaven and Hell/ Are there such places/ What's gonna' happen when we die/ Is there life after death/ Or just darkness/ When we close our eyes and say goodbye/ Curiosity has gotten the best of me/ What's beyond the great big sky/ Is there no pain/ Is there peacefulness/ Should the living envy the dead/ Will I ever know/ Will I ever fly so high and find out/ What's beyond the great big sky/ Is there really a God/ Is there really Satan/ Or is it all just made up lies/ Should I believe/ In people I cannot see/ Who's responsible for our lives/ Don't want to hear a preaching man's philosophy/ I'd rather find my answers when I die/ Is there no pain/ Is there peacefulness/ Should the living envy the dead/ Will I ever know/ Will I ever fly so high and find out/ What's beyond the great big sky/ Is there no pain/ Is there peacefulness/ Should the living envy the dead/ Will I ever know/ Will I ever fly so high and find out/ What's beyond the great big sky/

Goodbye Old Friend

 I wrote this song for my grandmother after she passed away....

How can we know/When it's time for us to go/And it's too late to say/A decent goodbye/You lose your best friend/You lose a loved one/You're aching inside/You break down and cry/Goodbye Old Friend/I hope that I see you again/In another lifetime/Or another world/Goodbye Old Friend/I pray that I see you again/And I hope there's no pain/Wherever you are/When death takes it's toll/You can't help but lose control/Everything changes/And you're never the same/You're left with just memories/You fear they will fade/You're bitter inside/And you lose all your faith/Goodbye Old Friend/I hope that I see you again/In another lifetime/Or another world/Goodbye Old Friend/I pray that I see you again/And I hope there's no pain/Wherever you are/I watch birds fly so high/So tranquil and freely/And all I can wish for/Is that you're now that free/Goodbye old friend/I know I will see you again/When it's my time to sail/To your part of the sea/Goodbye My Friend/I can't wait to see you again/And I'll gladly surrender/When the end comes for me/I'll gladly surrender/When the end comes for me

Have You Ever

 Another thought provoking night...

Have you ever thrown a coin in a fountain/Have you ever wished upon a star/Have you ever held a four leaf clover/Have you ever said a prayer to God/Have you ever thought about the future/Or do you prefer living day by day/Have you ever felt your life is one big chapter/In an endless book of yesterday/Have you ever thought about/Living in a place/Where peace love and harmony/Is one stone's throw away/Have you ever felt desperation/Have you ever felt the walls close in/Were you scared/Were you lost/Were you hurting/Have you risen from the fall/From deep within/Have you ever thought about/Living in a place/Where peace love and harmony/Is one stone's throw away/Go on your way/Go find the day/But don't count on what you see today/Have you ever thrown a coin in a fountain/Have you ever wished upon a star/Have you ever held a four leaf clover/Have you ever said a prayer to God/Do you think that there even is a God

Where Did Everybody Go
