A Goodly Bit

I danced by the light of the moon

I loved that awesome tune

I swung my hips

And licked my lips

And sang – I’ll be home soon!

 

I danced in the hot noon sun

I loved that sort of fun

I had my kicks

I took my licks

And sang – I’ll be the one!

 

I danced on a winter’s eve

I wore my heart on my sleeve

I loved some more

Went through that door

And sang – I’ll never leave!

 

I danced in the early dawn

I stretched and gave a yawn

I said – what’s next?

Don’t be perplexed

And sang – I will go on!

 

I’ve no regrets

Or must-forgets

I’ve danced a goodly bit

I’ve had my fun

I think I won

And I‘m not about to quit!

We Need To Hear

I don’t know what you’re looking for

I can’t be like this anymore

It’s ways like this that make me blue

It’s days like this, I don’t know you

I want the man that cares for me

The one who with his heart can see

In my heart I cry for you

My words of love are really true

It’s words of love we need to hear

Words of love that draw us near

But you get mad, push me aside

And again, my tears I hide

Because you are not listening dear

To words of love we need to hear.

You Don’t Need To Know

You don’t need to know the truth

The deep dark secrets of my youth

 

Just think of me with you right now

Think of us and think of how

I lay with you and there we nap

Think of me upon your lap

 

But you don’t need to know the truth

The deep dark secrets of my youth

 

Love me tender, love me sweet

Give me passion when we meet

Kiss me gently when we part

Leave me slowly, touch my heart

 

But you don’t need to know the truth

The deep dark secrets of my youth

 

There beside you, on your bed

Is where I lay my weary head

And when the ghosts come out to haunt

Give me what you know I want

 

But you don’t need to know the truth

The deep dark secrets of my youth

 

For if I tell you, if I crack

You’ll go away and not come back

Trust me, you don’t need to know

The things that make you want to go

 

You don’t need to know the truth

The deep dark secrets of my youth…

Yesterday’s Coffee

Drinkin’ yesterday’s coffee

It tastes mighty good

I used to drink coffee

In this neighborhood

Back in those days

It never would end

I used to drink coffee

Right here with a friend

I used to be happy

I used to be glad

With you here beside me

I couldn’t be sad

Those were the days

And just like today

I used to drink coffee

And now I dare say

That yesterday’s coffee

Is a bittersweet brew

But I’d drink that ole beverage

Right here with you

Ah, yesterday’s coffee

A favorite blend

Mostly enjoyed

When shared with a friend

Come drink it with me

In this neighborhood

‘Cause yesterday’s coffee

Tastes mighty good

Ah, yesterday’s coffee

Tastes just like it should.

Wild And Sexy

She’s vain and passionate, sexy and free

Determined and focused and strong as can be

Don’t think that she’ll follow, just ’cause you lead

Her dreams are born of a long ago seed

Her sights are set way up high

She knows that she’s about to fly

She’s duty bound by honor to win

Though the line between love and hate is so thin

She’s knows where she’s going and what she wants

She knows her demon and the places he haunts

Success and victory are hers for the taking

Her plans have been so long in the making

You want to touch her, she’s sexy and free

Wild and dangerous, like you want to be

The best you can hope for, the most you can ask

Is that she may let you help with her task

‘Cause she’s honor bound by duty to win

And she’ll never surrender, never again.

When I Close My Eyes

I remember how it was when you loved me

I close my eyes and I can dream

I remember how you told me just what I meant to you

And when I close my eyes it’s still true

 

Yes, I remember how it was when you loved me

Anything and everything for you

And when I close my eyes I still remember

But there’s nothing on this Earth that I can do

 

So I go about my day doing things that must be done

And I don’t indulge in thoughts of you

But when I close my eyes I still remember

And I’m swept away with dreams of us two

 

So I ride on the waves of the memories

Of a love I always knew was the best

Cause when I close my eyes I still remember

The one that stood so far above the rest

 

Then I go about my day and I act like I’m okay

Cause I remember how it was when you loved me

And when I close my eyes I can dream

I remember how you told me just what I meant to you

And when I close my eyes it’s still true

When I close my eyes it’s still true.

When A Woman’s Heart Grows Cold

When a woman’s heart grows cold

Hard and turned to stone

There’s nothing she can do

But live her life alone

But if a man should come along

Who puts a twinkle in her eyes

There’s nothing she can do

But love him till she dies

And if she comes to haunt him

When she’s cold and in the grave

There’s nothing she can do

About the time she couldn’t save

For when her time is over

And her life on earth is done

There’s nothing she can do

Nothing, for no one.

What You’ve Done

I wanted you to feel the pain

To see you take this kind of strain

To take the weight from off my back

And march along this rigid track

And when you think you’ve had your fill

March some more, march uphill

Then you’ll know that what you’ve done

The hollow victory that you won

Was nothing but a bully’s peak

You picked on someone who was weak

It made me want to cause you pain

To see you take this kind of strain

To see you suffer at great length

And see if you could save your strength

But somehow, mercy has it’s way

And I forgive you everyday

I go about my simple life

Forever more, no man’s wife

The safety that I need to feel

Is still a thing that isn’t real

No longer though will I blame you

The things you did I let you do

I hope you never feel the pain

Or have to take this kind of strain

Because I know that what you’ve done

I wouldn’t wish on anyone.

What You Never Really Found

Read this when you’re lonely

Read this when you’re sad

Remember what you lost

Remember what you had

Remember how you tossed me

Aside just like a scrap

Remember how you told me

You didn’t give a crap

And when I said “Goodbye”

You said, “I’ll see ya ’round”

I guess you never really lost

What you never really found

The days that I was with you

The good times that we had

Really weren’t that good

But neither were they bad

Sigh…

What State Are You In?

I’m in the state of confusion

The state of unrest

The state of weariness

A state I detest

 

I’m in the state of frustration

The state of dismay

The state of despair

From all this delay

 

I’m in the state of transition

The state of regret

The state of remembering

What I want to forget

 

In this state of mind

It’s easy to see

The state of insanity

Is where I’ll soon be

 

But you know it ain’t over

Till the fat lady sings

I heard she can tell you

All kinds of things

 

Do you think that you know

The state of chagrin?

You come on over

And I’ll let you in.
