Pine

March 5, 2011

I have a burning heart

It’s calling out for you

It went up with your spark

I tried to put it out

There was nothing I could do

 

A thousand miles apart

Just seems to feed the flames

Alone here in the dark

Fire going wild

I’m wishing it would rain

 

The driest parts are the ones that burn

Just hope that when the flames die down

The spark returns

 

It’s been a lonesome year

But embers still are gold

I keep them in my mind

Check from time to time

That the ashes don’t get cold

 

How long can one heart burn

Before the fuel is gone

I wonder if forever

Or if it’s just until

Someone else comes along

 

The driest parts are the ones that burn

Just hope that when the flames die down

The spark returns

Winds will blow, skies will rain

Just hope that when the smoke all clears

The warmth remains

 

Burn, burn, burn

Through hollow and reed

If you’re the one to finally put it out

Then maybe you’re what I really need

 

When the wildfire’s done

And nothing green remains

Just give a little time

And sure before your eyes

They’ll be grass upon the plain

 

Trees will always burn

When boughs are driven dry

So hard to watch them go

New ones grow so slow

But I guess that’s just life

 

The driest parts are the ones that burn

Just hope that when the flames die down

The spark returns

Winds will blow, skies will rain

Just hope that when the smoke all clears

The warmth remains

 

Heaven’s Sake

March 5, 2011

Been walking down those olden roads

Funny how it wasn’t that long ago

Equal smiles to equal fights

But we made it work, we earned our stars and stripes

 

Never really thought it was the end

Just took a break in hopes of staying friends

You moved away and I gave up

But I always knew that door was never shut

 

Will you be waiting

There at home

I close my aching eyes

And try and will it to be so

Will you be waiting

When I awake

I think I’d make you happy

For heaven’s sake

 

Thought a lot about what I did

You weren’t no angel, but hey, we were just kids

And we loved as children do

Falling hard and trying best to make it through

 

Will you be waiting

There at home

I close my aching eyes

And try and will it to be so

Will you be waiting

When I awake

I think I’d make you happy

For heaven’s sake

 

Alone within my room

City sirens screaming

Pray for sleep to come soon

For dream to overtake me

For she to overtake me

 

Been walking down those olden roads

Funny how it wasn’t that long ago

Still singing songs for you to hear

I hope you’re well, maybe this will be the year

 

Will you be waiting

There at home

I close my aching eyes

And try and will it to be so

Will you be waiting

When I awake

I think I’d make you happy

For heaven’s sake

The Better Life

March 5, 2011

My cinnamon in evening

My coffee and my medicine

 

I’m in love with you

I am finally through

To the better life this time

 

My lullaby in darkened times

My trembling hands are pacified

 

I’m in love with you

I am finally through

To the better life this time

 

You opened up and let me in

I’d wander off to return again

You never strayed nor went away

So I’d always have a home

 

A weakened man, I used to be

A faithful slave to misery

But your smiling heart

It shined on me

And now I find I see

 

Your angel wings, my holy ghost

The missing thing I needed most

 

I’m in love with you

I am finally through

To the better life this time

 

I’m in love with you

I am finally through

To the better life this time

Softest Parts

March 5, 2011

You say take it slow

And I swear I’ll try

But when I hear go

I start flying

 

When I believe, then I fall

And I’m waiting for your call

Cause I believe to be true

The softest parts of you

 

We make a lot of sense

Cause we’re late on time

Won’t you turn to me

And quit hiding

 

When I believe, then I fall

And I’m waiting for your call

Cause I believe to be true

The softest parts of you

 

And one of us is going to go first

I never know which is worse

 

And when we get old

We’ll look back and smile

At the lies we told

For desire

 

When I believe, then I fall

And I’m waiting for your call

Cause I believe to be true

The softest parts of you

20 in 1

March 5, 2011

You watched me age twenty years in one

Turn from hero into drunk

Saw the light in my eyes slowly fade

Walk out into the ocean ashamed

Saw my smile come through less and less

Heard more silence than openness

Watched me close on down, move out of town

Throw my hands to the sky

And walk away
