And Then It Hits Me download mp3 of song

And Then It Hits Me

written 5-28-14

Verse 1:
we see each other all the time
but we're just friends and so we smile
and when we dance we hold each other tight
but it don't mean a thing
we talk and argue points of view
but all the while I'm watching you
and noticing the way you laugh
and how your eyes shine bright
I think, that I am on the brink

Refrain:
and then It suddenly hits me

I've fallen in love with you again
oh ya
it hits me
I've fallen in love with you again
oh ya
it hits me

Verse 2:
it's happened many times before
and just when I think I've found a cure
you grab my hand as we go walking out
under a satin sky
you share your thoughts your heart your soul
which makes it harder to let go
and though tomorrow I'll see you again
no matter how I try
I don't want to say good bye

Refrain.

Bridge:

are we just friends
is that where it ends
or is there much more to you and I
I know you care
you've always been there
but not as a lover and I keep wondering

if maybe we should try

Verse 3:
time passes on we're still the same

some days I think I'll go insane
but if I tell you that's a line that once you cross
you can't go back
at least that's what I tell myself
but maybe I'm just scared as hell
to lose the closeness that we've always shared
if you don't want to hear the fact
my heart you always attract

Refrain.

Bridge.

Verse 1.

Sappy Tango

Written by the '48 hr Musical' group - June 2014

She's the most beautiful thing I've ever seen
her eyes sparkle like stars in the sky
her hair cascades like Niagara Falls
her lips invite a kiss

with grace from above she keeps us informed
and yet she doesn't know I exist
and yet she doesn't know I exist

just wait for things to change
keep trying to walk
put myself out of range
well tell that to my heart
remembering every move
if you finally fade
well just what will that prove, 'cause

I don't understand it
felt like just a dream
for me you're a perfect fit
but you're pulled by other things
and challenges keep following it seems

distant at the end of your rope
pushing back at me
ragged just trying to cope
it simply doesn't last
I turn to dancing days
I felt you loving me
in oh so many ways, 'cause

falling was easy
but living it was rough
I couldn't walk away

I'm Learning To Trust

Written 10-6-2012

Refrain:
I'm learning to trust
like the sun keeps shining trust
just like gravity I trust
that I will never stop growing
life is always changing
and so I'm learning to trust
I'm learning to trust

Verse 1:
well here we all are on planet earth
it's a beautiful view if you can see it's worth
I used to think I could lock it all in place
they say God laughs when we make plans
or try to stop the flow of the hourglass sands
daily life is the challenge we face

That's why
Refrain.

Verse 2:
I used to think I could force things through
if everyone would just do what I tell them to do
I might have solved everything long ago
well now I notice the irony
of grasping and holding to try to get free
it seems that I sometimes have trouble letting go


That's why

Running On Dreams

Written 11-1-2012

Verse 1:
watching your hips sway
I want to be right there in front of you
floating on the music
to move in time is all I can do
we move so smoothly
it's like we were meant to be right here
and now that I've felt it
the hunger inside has become quite clear

Refrain:
I'm running on dreams
I'm yearning for something I didn't even know
I'm running on dreams
the door has blown open now it won't close
I didn't know I was missing anything
just cruising along
thinking I had it all

Verse 2:
like falling love I've
been hit from the blind side, taken down
a sweet revelation
I feel my body pulled by sound
in some ways we're so close
out here dancing the night away
but you've got your own life
and just a few hours are all you can stay

tears will run as time flies
a little while now you will be gone

this is how it's supposed to be
you're pushing back and getting free
I wouldn't change it I hope you know

Beauty Lives In You

Written 5-20-2011

Verse 1:
you don't have to stop and smell the roses

beyond the images that poetry exposes

of a breath of a voice ringing out with your choice
not to hide or destroy but to love with such joy

breaking out everywhere 'till we all simply share

Refrain.

Verse 3: (ad lib.)
it was afternoon on a dark and rainy day
dark clouds spread from horizon to horizon
the trees wet and dark with the rain
the grass dark on the ground
I happened to be outside
when suddenly there was a tiny break in the clouds
way down next to the horizon
and from that tiny break in the clouds
there was a piercing ray of light
that shot across the sky
and set the trees ablaze
dark clouds above
dark rain soaked ground below
but that single piercing ray of light
striking the trees
making the leaves shine like diamonds
the sight pierced my heart with
indescribable beauty
indescribable beauty
indescribable beauty
and perhaps foolishly I tried to explain it

Beautiful Agony

Written 5-9-2008

Verse 1:
Beautiful agony
patience is stripped from me
how can I wait to see you again
when we're together
it should last forever
but the clock keeps on moving until we have to part
we may have a lifetime
of this beautiful sunshine
but right now I got to make it through the dark

I need to feel you
when we're apart
to feel your love
wrapped around wrapped around my heart
a slow dance a slow dance
with no ending no start

Beautiful agony
sometimes it terrifies me
to think that I might just need you this way
exquisite torture
to dream of the future
knowing all I've got is just this day

Beautiful agony
haunted by a memory
the look in your eyes just before we kiss
better to have loved and lost
but darling how steep the cost
how would I survive knowing all I'd miss

Beautiful agony
patience is stripped from me
how can I wait to see you again

morning light hazy
birds going crazy
five AM early dawn

birds have a conference
out on the back fence
asking me why you're not around

but right now I'm OK
greeting the new day
and I don't know why

paper and clothing strewn
but there on the pillow an angels face
something about him
makes things not so grim
a simple touch of grace

it doesn't make sense that I'm feeling OK
I should be hungry for somebodies kiss

from the biggest planet to the smallest atom

Start With Some Sand

written 3/24/05

lyrics

verse 1:
remember when you were a little kid
looking for Easter eggs your parents hid
the world keeps changing and so do you
but change can start easy and here's what you do.

refrain:
start with some sand to make a mountain
plant the seed to grow a tree
a little rain to begin an ocean
a thought in my mind to start a new me.

verse 2:
color your Easter eggs in pink and blue
polka dotted and striped too
remember the simple pleasures are
often the ones that can take you far

refrain.

verse 3:
sometimes dreams arrive partly done
they need some laughter they need a little fun
and like a child its time to play
so rub your toes in the dirt today

refrain.
a thought in my mind to start a new me.

others you will pass away

all the things we hoped for but never really could.

reality is subjective 
we all hold different views
individuality is sparked with everything we choose.

Something Pink

Written 1995

Verse 1:
something pink is waiting in the grass for me
smiling wide so I can see
spreading wide so I can be inside
something pink is slipping between the sheets
a song in my head repeats
a thought in my head repeats in my bed

Refrain:
so take off your clothes and stay for awhile
I've been waiting for you wearing only a smile
when you're so near why do you feel so far away
maybe it's me I just don't understand
are we closer now or just shaking hands
my thought are clear I just don't know what to say

Verse 2:
something pink is strutting across the stage
I don't know why my thoughts presage
my third eye sees acts of rage nearby
something pink is hiding under every skirt
that's why I always flirt 
that's why I always hurt these days

Refrain.

something pink
something pink
something pink

Verse 1:
at times my writing feels like just pretty little phrases
with rhymes that so conveniently bind words to other words
my mind continues pushing while my heart is silent

it stands alone in touch with everything

blind and deaf I'm searching for the perfect thing to say
pen scratching onward straying further from the truth

we try to balance the needs of everyone

a taste for adventure
with nothing to guide me

to large to pass over was my own insecurity

inside out my mind has become
I'm just an equation looking for a sum
I go around the world and back to you

The Last Song

Written 1993

(goodbye to Patsy Cline)

Verse 1:
when I was young one
knee high to everyone
I'd sit with my grandma and listen to the radio
as I grew I began to sing along
when they played one of your songs
I whispered the words as off to bed I'd go

Refrain:
and I remember the last song before I heard you died
I just lay on the bed and cried
and somehow from that night my heart knew
what I would grow up to do

Verse 2:
we lived a half a mile from anyone
with three generations
under one roof but I didn't mind
there was always someone to talk to
and when the day's work was through
with the radio in the kitchen we'd start to unwind

Refrain.

Verse 3:
I always looked peculiar
not much of a figure
the boys often teased me but never when I sang
I first felt my inner fire
singing in the church choir
I swear you could hear us even when the church bells rang

I wanted to be like you
I wanted to be like you

hand-me-down clothes and worn out shoes
no extra money for frills or fancy laces
fading now are the crystal clear memories of youth

she's lived a long long time but time has been kind to her
somehow I never asked what has helped her make it through
when so much time has passed I hope I'm lively too

my memory of her is that she always looked the same
through all of the changes in both of our lives
not quick to pass judgement or find someone to blame
with strength and grace her spirit survives

God Was A Woman

Written 1993

Verse 1:
Christ was black and probable gay
but people don't like to see him that way
God was a woman four thousand years ago
before patriarchy entered the show
how little we know

Verse 2:
back then lived people in love with the earth
who celebrated life and death and birth
living in Eden they'd be there still
if Moses hadn't killed them claiming Gods will
claiming Gods will

Verse 3:
bloody are the wars of righteousness
bring your weapons to the priest to be blessed
Hitler and Moses did very much the same
they killed so many in God's holy name
in God's holy name

John Doe

Written 1993

Verse 1:
I just had the strangest thought
what if everyone was the same
matching outfits that we bought
all signed for with one name
John Doe on every driver's license
everywhere you look
to me it wouldn't make much sense
filling up the telephone book

Refrain:
differences make the world go round
different voices making different sounds
different faces make me smile
differences make life worth while

Verse 2:
what if everyone was the same
what a drag that would be
locked in a dull eternal game
no individuality
imagine going to a movie
and up there on the screen was you
you might think "hey groovy"
but then you'd know the ending too

Refrain.

Verse 3:
I think that everyone would sleep
from boredom's suffocating hand
we all would utter not a peep
as silence hung upon the land
there is no way around it
no getting past the point
if this is hell you've found it
the world would be one messed up joint

Refrain.

I just had the strangest thought
what if everyone was the same

Silently

Written 1993

silently we sit as if that's all we'll ever do
worn and tired we rest because the day will come so soon
caught between a five year old and one who's just been born
the fabric of our tenderness is stretched and badly torn

Refrain:
are you there hello
I hope some day to meet you
twenty years is a long time to wait for you my love
are you there hello
your face looks so familiar
I want to find the ways know you more
to love you more

Verse 2:
what did we once talk about before the talker came
filling up the space with shouts of never ending game
the silence we enjoy only when both are sound asleep
seems to gather distance which our tender hearts both keep

Refrain.

Verse 3:
it's true that there's a strength to us there never was before
warmth and understanding I rely on more and more
far surpassing passion though I miss that very much
sometimes the spark is hidden even when we touch

I'll be happy just to melt into the earth you won't have to cry
I'll be smiling right through my last goodbye

I don't need many other lives to finally get it right
I don't want life's mysteries to keep me awake at night
I'm just doing my best and after all what else could I do
either way we're all just passing through

We Become download mp3 of song
We Become

Written 1993

Verse 1:
It's hard to dream to keep you vision forward
when life seems unchanging or maybe even going backward
it's a simple word despair describing inner anguish
it's hard to breath from there or whispered just a single wish

Refrain:
but when we dream we change the world
we open up the pathways of the universe
when we strive to understand who we are and who we will become
we become

Verse 2:
it's hard to dream when the days are so hard
and nights an endless stream of all the things you never start
it's a vicious circle of searching and not finding
clinging to other people because the future's light is blinding

Refrain.

Verse 3:
it's hard to dream when you think you're doomed to failure
and each unfinished scheme only makes your sentence that more sure
the chains that bind you are of your own making
look beyond what you believe is true and you may hear the shackles breaking

Refrain.

not forced upon by outer things
but coming from within
coming from within

How Do I Change The World

Written 1992

Verse 1:
I live like anyone else on this floating ball of blue
I see things that we've forgotten though no less true
on a starry night ablaze with the light of a million suns
I wonder how I can make a difference being only one

Refrain:
I'm searching for an answer trying to find out
what do I do to change the world
I'm searching through my memory of all the other lifetimes
what can I do to change the world

Verse 2:
I've never been in a protest march I guess that I am afraid
I've always shied away from the politics of how our choices are made
I try to treat other people as I would treat someone I love
sometimes when I see the state of things I wonder if I do enough

refrain.

Verse 3:
is it enough in this time we're living in to simple live
or are we actually taking away all that we do not give
I'd like to think my life has made an impression on someone
but it's hard to tell how much we do has already been done

refrain.

I'm searching for an answer trying to find out
what do I do to change the world

How Do You Explain download mp3 of song

How Do You Explain

Written 1992

Verse 1:
how do explain about being tired
to a child who sleeps eleven hours a day
from his elation I am inspired
to find the extra energy to play
he's holding onto promises unclouded by the atmosphere
he's holding onto promises he's a child

Verse 2:
how do explain about love
to a youth who's still waiting to be kissed
there's so much that their unaware of
then again maybe I'm the one who's missed
holding out for promises denying what I held inside
holding out for promises I was a child

Verse 3:
how do you explain about time
the constant ticking ticks away the frantic second hand
the way you fight it is a crime
deny the answer to the question you may never understand
you're holding on with promises in the fast lane like a house afire
you're holding on with promises you're like a child

Verse 4:
how do you explain about life
complicated explanations unimproved by repetition
at time simple  movement is such delight
at times like this I want to share it with everyone
I'm letting go of promises smiling at the gentle breeze
I'm letting go of promises I'm still a child

am I dancing with her against her beside her above her
below the sun just like the clouds
I stop and listen

other times I'm heavy like an elephant stomping harshly on her skin
she seems to like the give and take ebb and flow
I stop and listen
I wonder is she smiling

Geometry

Written 1992

Verse 1:
I've heard that before
why should I believe it
if that's all that's in store
where do I fit
words upon words upon words upon words spilling out like this
still no closer to the truth
what did I miss

whisper soft and sweet
equations repeat repeat repeat

your words are outside of me
I let in the ones I want to
adding to insanity
I don't know which parts of me are true
words upon words upon words upon words never ending
so much to say
all beyond comprehending

Forget The Past

Written 1990

Verse 1:
every time we argued I lost
I never learned how to say no
accepting you no matter what the cost
I carry it with me though you don't know

you want me to forget the past
but I can't it's all too real
you want me to forgive you
but I can't you've hurt me too many times

you say you want both of us to win
some things don't work out that way
I hardly know where to begin
saying all I need to say

Refrain.

Verse 3:
they say time heals all wounds
but it also hides many more
some lessons I forget too soon
and take the path I took before

love doesn't solve everything
maybe someday I'll feel you are a friend
and pain will disappear from what I sing

I Don't Think download mp3 of song

I Don't Think

Written 1990

Verse 1:
the thoughts that to come to mind right now
don't seem to belong
but later on I don't know how
they'll turn into a song
it's wonderful without precedent
like a magic spell
all the unplanned accidents
that fit together well

Refrain:
usually I don't think I just let it flow
balanced on the brink of what I don't know
I watch in amazement as words fill the page
the thoughts of a lunatic not a sage

Verse 2:
do those you who do not write
wonder what we think of
we sit alone late at night
and blindly speak of love
is there any rhyme or reason
to the things I've said
is it simply an expulsion
of the thoughts in my head

Refrain.

Verse 3:
when I try to work it out
it all just falls apart
I am better off without a doubt
relying on my heart
my mind is so controlled
by the future and the past
forget all you've been told
and be free at last

Refrain.

I watch in amazement as words fill the page
the thoughts of a lunatic not a sage

The love was stronger than the pain

Nothing To Strike At

You See What You Want To

Written 1990

Verse 1:
I've tried to show you the pain inside
the things you do that hurt me so
I've tried to help you change your life
but it does no good if you don't want to
it must be lonely in your private world
but very comforting to know it will never change
I'd like to bring you outside one day
to look me in the eye and see who I really am

Refrain:
you see what you want to cover your ears and close your eyes
you see what you want to warm and safe inside your lies
you see what you want to wether or not it's true
you see what you want to so what else can I do

Verse 2:
it seems you push away the ones you love
or those who might love you if given a chance
your anger burns inside your heart
will you love again or ever live
I have the same disease inside of me
like a cancer left alone it will grow
I release a little each passing day
by looking at the pain I let it go

Refrain.

Verse 3:
I see your smile as a shield you wear
convincing me that everything is fine
you want me to share in your lie
but blocking the pain you block the love
each passing day I learn a little more
each step I take takes me further away
from you and where you chose to be
I can't believe you don't want to grow

Refrain.

what else can I do

than simple breathing air

which I often hide
we all show a little rain
but not all there is inside

how could I live
how could I die
how could I love

of energy and song
as if looking through the mud
I see what was there all along
at other times I'm black
gone is the light that shown
searching for the way back
utterly alone

as we grow we leave behind the old

and shed it's light across the land

you can find a sort of comfort in the pain

I know this isn't my last goodbye
challenges will come which make me cry

Let Go

Written 1987

Verse 1:
I get home from work and change my clothes
I get a little smirk from the shirt that I choose
it's one of those shirts that never dies
every time I wear it another fashion designer cries
they'll never recreate this shirt no matter how hard they try

Refrain:
the natural reaction to something you love
is to keep it out of action and cover it like a glove
save it from the sting and never let it show
but if you really love something let it go let it go

Verse 2:
I get into my car and go for a ride
I don't have to go far before I decide
a smooth running car with a radio
and it doesn't really matter where you go
it's a good thing too 'cause where I'm going I don't always know

Refrain.

Verse 3:
I sit at my piano and feel the music pour
you ask me how I don't know I don't think much about it any more
music is something that I set free
I don't even think it's inside of me
unlike this body music will play eternally


Refrain
let it go
let it go
let it go
let it go

Sweet Release

Written 1987

Verse 1:
some feelings I hold very close to me
and they never heal
my heart can be so cold if I don't set free

at times I feel such pain when I try to open wide
this door I hold so tight
I can push and strain but to really see inside
I must give up the fight

sweet release is what I feel when I'm with you love
sweet release still so much I could let go of
sweet release as simple as opening a door
sweet release allows me to love you that much more

Verse 2:
there is ever present path's which I could take
but I choose not to see
at times I resent all that is at stake
and pulls so subtly
still I often run from truth so clear and plain
but I always know
it's hardly ever fun I cry through the pain
but it's time to let go

Refrain.

allows me to love you that much more

When You're Not Here

Written 1987

Verse 1:
I was tired at the end of the day

and I wondered if you feel the same way
I tried to be happy just thinking of you
to feel you with me in whatever I do
but my reality wouldn't come true

Refrain:
when you're not here
my love seems so unreal
my dreams become unclear
I start to doubt what I feel
without seeing you eye to eye
it's hard to dispel my fear
and yes of course I cry
when you're not here
when you're not here
when you're not here

Verse 2:
my heart stood still to shed a tear
the wind was chill so lonely and clear
I hope you will soon be here
there was no answer when I tried to phone
I made some dinner and ate alone
I started to wonder if you'd ever get home

and the scent that flows knows not the hour

Between Law And Love

Written 1986

Verse 1:
my God what can I do
caught between rock and stone
I should probably leave you
and face the world alone
but darling you're the best I've found
that's a truth I just can't hide
and the way we have to sneak around
is tearing me up inside

Refrain:
trapped between law and love
we're always saying follow your heart
but that's what I was thinking of
every day from the start
trapped between love and law
it's so damn complicated
and though my heart you've helped to thaw
it's a mess that we've created

Verse 2:
the law is very clear
in cases such as this
but it doesn't matter when you're here
awaiting your first kiss
my strength is almost spent
struggling with this twist of fate
I ache for things to be different
I was simply born too late

Refrain.

Verse 3:
you belong to another
why does that seem so strange
you're a wife and a mother
that's something I just can't change
we meet somewhere in between
what other people plan
I should break away clean
but I don't know if I can

For Everyone, There Is Someone

Written 1986

Verse 1:
I can almost see you here
just at the edge of my vision

which clouds our eyes

the unseen world readily supplies

For everyone there is someone
in this I do believe
the one for me is plain to see
I hope you'll never leave
I know you'll never leave

through darkened hours your light has shown
our love has no interference
the connection is tangible 
between us like a thread
that's why you feel so comfortable
as if all's been done and said

Refrain.

Verse 3:
You must be an angel's gift
given for reasons I cannot find
entering my life to lift
the doubt and sadness from my mind

that makes my life so special

Heartbeat

Written 1986

Verse 1:
listen to my heart beat
listen to the rain
your last words I repeat
but it's all in vain
the meaning's the same
my heart is beating slowly
barely a snail's pace
without you I'm so lonely
the memory of your face I can't erase
the memory of your face I can't erase

Refrain:
at one time my heart would beat
and echo like a lion's roar
at one time when I'd hear her feet
dance across the floor
I'd feel complete but it's no more
I'd feel complete but it's no more

Verse 2:
hear the beat of my heart
it sounds so far away
our lives are forever apart
her love is yesterday
and there to stay
my heart is barely beating
any moment it might be still
watch my life retreating
buried in a hill leave her my will
buried in a hill leave her my will

Refrain.

Verse 3:
hear my heart if you listen
it's beating stronger now
all it took was one person
she knows more than I'd allow
and I don't know how
my heart is beating faster
could this be love
every time I see her
speaking's not enough
she's all I think of
speaking's not enough
she's all I think of

Refrain variation (last time):
once again my heart would beat
and echo like a lion's roar
once again when I'd hear her feet
dance across the floor
I'd feel complete for evermore
I'd feel complete for evermore
I'd feel complete for evermore
I'd feel complete for evermore

Here He Sits

Written 1986

Verse 1:
so here he sits
alone as usual
if his smiling face fits
it's only visual
for deep inside 
he's crying again
for all those who've died
'though he can't remember when

Verse 2:
he stares out the window
but sees not today
if you wave hello
his eyes are far away
for he feels no future
and his present is the past
his life is but to remember
and so his fate is cast

Refrain:
the dreams that shaped his life
have all been left behind
two daughters a son and a wife
live only in his mind
what you see is only a shell
of a man who's seen many things through
I shouldn't be sad he's lived well
I just wish there was more that I could do

Verse 3:
he goes nowhere 
and hides from himself
he sits in his chair 
like the pictures on his shelf
if you wonder the reason 
he doesn't have a friend
on any other person 
he doesn't want to depend

I just wish there was more that I could do
I just wish there was more that I could do

it's a beautiful night
it's cold outside

the troubles born of yesterday
and relive all the memories we hold dear

if you were here
if you were here

it's a beautiful morn
the light's just now peeking

darkness is torn
as sun rays are streaking
across blue skies
the world's just begun
everything I see
before me is clear
I rise with the sun
my heart would be free
if you were here

do you see that star
sparkling by the moon so bright
can you see it where you are
it's shining in the night time sky
a light for just we two
if I spread my wings and fly
will it lead me to you

Refrain:
on a night like this
my soul has to sing
the joy of all that is
and what the future may bring
there's someone I can't forget
who laughs with me in the sun
I may not even know them yet
but I'm singing to someone
but I'm singing to someone

Verse 2:
tonight I feel your presence here
growing closer still
suddenly I see you clear
from my window sill
I feel you growing inside
you're still far away
I'm left no place to hide
and nothing left to say

Refrain.
but I'm singing to someone
