Wind in your hair

Riding down the road
With the windows down
The wind whips your black hair
You looking so sexy
In your tight blue jeans
Ripped at the knees
Singing your favorite radio tunes
You give me that sideways smile

Riding down the road
With the windows down
You touched my hand
With the wind in your hair
Singing your love song

Evening comes with the setting sun
Sitting on your balcony
You drink your whiskey straight
Laughing at the moon
You reach over stroke my hair
Candles light your face
With a soft glow, you smile
You take my hand, we dance

We sway with the music
As the evening breeze
Blows your black hair
You whisper in my ear
The words to your favorite love song

Fool

The best thing to walk into your life
Just walked out the door, you fool
You were so close to tasting
The sweetness of her
You saw it her eyes, the love
You once had the flame for her
You let it burn out with your selfishness
You only fed the fire when it suited your need
You fooled us all, playing the part
Your heart departed, leaving her on the stage
You had us captured, watching from afar
Knowing it would last forever
But you, let the light in your heart go dim
Tossed her aside like yesterday's news
You let her leave with out a second thought
Only a casual good bye
The best thing to walk into your life
Just walked out the door, you fool
You fool, you fool of the heart
When someone else loves her
Will you sink into a pool of regret
Will you cry tears of sorrow
That you will have her no more
She walked out the door
You fool, you fool, you fool
Can you see into your future
All your lovers will come and go
You have no true love for them
Because the best thing to walk into your life
Just walked out the door.

Demons

The night is dark and still 
Cold as ice, 
Stars fade into the blackness
Nothing goes bump in the night
You prowl the streets unhindered
Swaggering panther of a woman

I have demons that keep me up at night
My dreams are haunted by you
You fled into the ghostly mist
Leaving me to shiver and crave
I feel you lurking in the shadows
And hear the demons whisper in my ear

In the cold dark night
Where there is no light
Like a black panther
Stalking my dreams
The demon that keeps me up
You know you want her
To slay my demons
Slay my demons

You know you want her
To slay my demons
In the cold dark night
She will bring the light
To slay my demons

Shadow of Your Heart

You hide in the shadows of your heart
But I can see right through you
Aloof and alone yet yearning
I know your truth, it's in your eyes
No matter the words you utter
You can't hide in your shadows
You know the one you want
It's not easy giving into your heart
When she looks at you
And you look into her eyes
Your heart knows, it knows
Others will come and go
But only she will be the one
To bring your heart from the shadows
You stroke her hair, hold her hand
Even for a moment, there is no denial
In the quiet moments of holding her close
There is a peace, a comfort, a stillness
Yet you try to retreat to the shadows of your heart
But I still see the halcyon in your eyes
No matter, time passes, your souls will never part
She is in your blood, she is your star crossed love
You love her, love her and I can see it your eyes.

Slow Dancing

Turn the lights down low
Turn on the music softly
Wrap your arms around me
I'll pull you close into me
Let your hips sway with mine
As the rhythm moves our bodies

We have the romance
For the slow dance
No need to move fast
We have all night
Till the break of light
For the slow dance

I'm not a daddy's girl
I'm your ladies lady
Charming and then some
Take my hand
We'll take flight
And spend all night
Slow dancing to the baby grand

We have the romance
For the slow dance
No need to move fast
We have all night
Till the break of light
For the slow dance

Lay your head against my chest
Feel music in my heart
Let the sway of my heat
Move you in tempo 
No one has to know about us
Dancing to the I love yous

We have the romance
For the slow dance
No need to move fast
We have all night
Till the break of light
For the slow dance

Thunder

Thunder, thunder pounding the gray skies
The thumping in my chest as you walk by
You give me that sly smile , I drop to my knees
You are my prayer, my prayer-my keeper
My heart is in sacred testimony to your heat

Lighting, lighting striking across the black heaven
When lighting strikes the sand making hot glass
You light my gloomy sky when you touch me
My scared addiction-I keep coming back for more
I drop to my knees-pray my addiction never leaves

Thunder, thunder pounding the gray skies
Lighting, lighting striking across the black heaven
I pray to my scared addiction
Pounding, thumping, striking my heart
I pray to my scared addiction
Thunder---thunder

Heat

Show me your hot flames of desire 
I need your heat against me 
Let me take high in the night 
I'll go low to bring you high
You are in my blood, transfuse me
Run your silky fingers over my body
I'll take you deep into your soul
I need your heat, your desire 
Hot flames, give me that burn 
I'll take you high over again
Over again till you beg mercy 
Turn up the heat, bring me your fever
I need to feel your passion against me
Let's take the stairway to heaven
Cry mercy, then strike the match 
No turning back now, 
Wicked things we do
Go down low baby
I need your heat
Let's go high tonight 
With hot flames 
No turning back
No mercy, just the heat
Give me the burn, go low
I'll bring you high
I need your heat
I'll bring you high
So high, high

Would You Mind...

Would you mind if I loved you
Would you mind if I didn't love you
Would you mind if I put you first
Would you mind if I put you last
Would you mind if I hold you close
Would you mind if I let you go

No sense in living in the past
No need to plan for the furture
I only want to live in this moment
To drive all night to the seashore
In that moment to see the sun rise
I want to take the moment by the hand

Do you mind if we dance in the moonlight
Do you mind if we sit this one out
Do you mind if I hold you hand walking down the avenue
Do you mind if I walk alone without you
Do you mind if I take you for my own
Do you mind staying forever

Intoxicate

You intoxicate me
I get drunk from your scent
You run your fingers over me
I tingle down my spine
My back arches closer
You intoxicate me

I stumble down the streets
After I left you behind
My head is full of fever
I am engulfed by the heat
I yearn for a long drink of you
You intoxicate me

You intoxicate me
You are my addiction
I crave your embrace
To lay next to you eternally
Drink you in like a fine wine
You intoxicate me

On the Side

I watched the the water run over the pebbles
I saw you slowly fading away from innocence
That youth of hours sitting on my bed
Drinking gin, listening to my vinyl lps
Believing we were the only ones in love
You could see into my soul and we dreamed

We would stay up too late crusin' 13th street
You dragged me into your mystery, no way out
We parked under the oak tree at 10th street park
We drank gin in the dark beneath a starlit night
You kissed me deep and hard with juniper lips

The years moved by us and we drifted
You left me in your mystery, still no way out
So much water under the bridge, washing it all way
Pebbles turned into sand, I'm standing on the shore
I hear you call on the wind, drawing me back in

I don't want to be your lover on the side
Don't want to be your second side dish
Don't want to live in the shadow of you
I don't want to care more than you do

We were so much younger then, only 22
Reaching for the dream, running with the wind
Too young to hold onto the dream,  only 22
Now I can't be you lover on the side
It was easier then, we were only 22

I don't want to be your lover on the side
Don't want to be your second side dish
Don't want to live in the shadow of you
If only we were 22 again,
We would be in the light
In the light and 22 again
In the light-not you lover on the side.

Nothing More

There is nothing left for you and me
You took it all when we were seventeen
You left me on the floor
Bleeding for what might have been
Did you feel the pain?

I'll drink the whiskey till I become numb
To forget you in the mist of your sin
We were much too young for the fall
You lead me to the pit and tossed it all in
I reached for you to hold on, you let go

The long dark night sipping your madness
Sanity creeping around the corner out of reach
I wake at the break of dawn with your smell on me
My mind tries unravel confusion of your presence
Thunder rolls in the distant, another storm coming

When we were seventeen
I gave it all for you
You left me bleeding
Nothing more for you
Nothing, nothing more
Nothing more for you
Did you feel the pain?

Sweet Night

You walk into the dark sweet night
You take the path less traveled all alone
You been hiding in the shadows too long
The night will give you up to the light
You seek to take rest before the break of day

You are a phantom among crowd
You gain strength from the single stranger
You gave into the darkness.
Time holds no measure,
Only loneliness
Only loneliness

A Time Gone Past

This is from long ago (maybe 2004)


I sit alone by the fire light watching
Flames flickering, ever reaching
The music gently rocks my heart and
A remembered scent of you sooths my soul.

We are a time gone past
A future never told
We were haunting and mystical
We were autumn and spring.

Firelight dances across my room
I see you in the shadows on my walls
Candle light illuminates the darkness and
I long to touch your face

Close my eyes I still feel your breath against my cheek
I reached out for you and in a flicker you were gone
Winter falls outside my window, covering traces of you
Flames quietly burn, as I desire your passion again

We are a time gone past
A future never told
We were haunting and mystical
We were autumn and spring.

The fire grows dim as the sun rises
I hear the song of another day
I look for you one more time

And silently the flames fade away.

A Summer Breeze

This was from 3 years ago (2014)


A southern night breeze blows in over the river
The aroma of sweet jasmine perfumes the air
The thought of you blankets my mind as I lie on the bank
As the water flows down the river, you flow into my heart
The stars light the night as your smile lights my soul
I long to hold you and feel your heart beat with mine
You are the magic of what love is, yet you are so far from me
We are like moments in the wind, falling over and over again
Held together by a star dream, dancing on the edge of a moon beam
We are cosmic dreams, loving from a distant and never apart
A southern night breeze blows in and I hold your heart next to mine.

Rose of Lancaster

Look at you, alone and small
Standing in her shadow
Wearing a Rose of Lancaster
She is your sin, who will save you now?

The rain is cold on your skin
Wrap you up in the light of a million stars
Who will bring you into the warmth
Of loving arms from being lost

You have been searching all your life
For the one who will raise you up
Who will be the one to protect your heart
Move out of the shadow, turn around

See the one next you who is in the light
Reach out and hold the warm hand
Of the one who will protect your heart
They have been there all your life

So baby take the blinders off and run,
Run into the arms of the one who loves you
All it takes is that single touch
So baby take the blinders off and run,
Run into the light and see the only one
All takes is the touch of a beating heart
So baby take the blinders off and run
Run, run, run to the one who loves you.

Kiss the Girl

You said, it was all too soon
That my heart was fresh, brand new
I needed to get steady on my feet
Navigate my uncharted waters

And I said, life is too short
Not to gaze into those eyes
Or to hold that soft hand
Feel your breath on my cheek
Place my hand against your chest,
Feel your heartbeat
To feel your hand run across my back,
To feel the heat
Kiss the girl I want to kiss
Under a moon lit night

You said, it was unfamiliar course
Landing on this a rocky shore
That I needed firm ground to hold me true
I'm not the first, you have seen it all before
And I said, the journey may be precarious but
Are willing to me hold me steady?

You said, let me help you find the way
Keep me steady on my feet
To navigate the uncharted waters
You would be there to hold me true

And I said,
Let me kiss the girl I want to kiss
Under a moon lit night
