but i can sing of the glories gone


I was the bloom in the thunderstorm
today my petals are strewn about the floor~
refused to believe my sunshine had gone away…
still that girl chasin’ after long lost fates…

You were that ice cream on a summer day
that I left out too long, and found had dripped away,
Our hearts moved with the power of hurricane winds
but that season faded away long ago, since then

We were the rainbow glowing fresh in my heart
we were the flash of a shooting star
we were the fireworks, the fiery bursts of light
and then we fell as scattered ashes & died…

This is the problem with the most powerful of beauties,
they never stick around too long
And I’m that girl left trying to explain to my friends,
why it’s impossible for me to move on…

it was a supernatural phenomenon…
trust me, I am aware our glowing water is gone…
i know that you can’t capture the glorious dawn…
but im still writing song after heart pounding song…….

mean every line


squeezing hope out of my frozen little heart, &
songs like night trains and written in the stars
better together, carolina, and gonna make you mine
i sing every love song i hear, and mean every line…

coins, spells, rainbows, & wells


like the coins they threw into a wishing well,
like the words they spoke from a book of spells
like a tone-deaf girl trying to learn how to sing
we were wasted as money bet on the lottery…

oh like using a phone book 2 decades old,
and following rainbows looking for a pot of gold,
some people will disappoint you in the end
doesn’t matter how much heart & hope you put into it…

now i ain’t sayin’ miracles can’t come true
or that wishes in fountains isn’t fun to do…
all i’m saying is that i’m done trusting you…
time wastin’, so let’s hasten & make this through…

to the bay the sun & beyond


I sailed out to the setting sun
but I told you it was a hit and run
& you believed me & followed me to the bay…
Life’s too hard just to let it go
But I wanted to make sure you know
I never meant to let us break…

I tried to stay true -true To you To all of our dreams
I tried, baby tried Harder than it seems
& I, I just had to run away
You seem to think it was all just a hoax
But sometimes, baby, that’s how life goes
that way, Away… away… away

bigger & better after dreams


Life’s tough, i know
it gets hard to show
what you feel deep inside
but we always gotta try,

we keep pushing on
hoping for a new song
life’s not about you & me
it’s time to wake up from our dreams

cuz

it’s bigger, it’s better
it’s waiting, & it’s never
gunna stop
oh we need to look at what we’ve got

someday it’s gonna be so great,
but right now we gotta go our own ways
oh life’s big, while we’re small
we’re gonna be fine, just keep movin on…

just gotta keep movin on…

it’s bigger & it’s better

stop trying to fight for forever

because we could have it now

found my heart as i got over you


Sound my music to the shadow of a tale
almost grande almost more than the legends do
We had an epic unfurling of hopeful dreams
but our story ended with no goodbye from you…

most would count that as “the end”
but here, we can count that as the start
because since the moment I finally moved on
that’s when I found the best of my heart

I am the one looking for an adventure
I am the pirate of seashell treasures at the beach
I am the swing dancer in a swirly skirt
who won’t let anything keep me from dancing…

i love lemon ice cream on hot summer days
go ahead let myself indulge in some chocolate cake
Get a manicure, pedicure, spoil myself through & through
i learned to love my life, when, i was just trying to get over you

watch that ship disappear into the sea of past blues…
sing that country song, even if i can’t keep the tune
starting a new adventure after climbing a mountain or two
Cuz you moved on, and finally, I’m free to love someone new…

being alive!


I really need to fall in love again
and this week, I really have…

I realized you can fall in love with the sunrise
fall in love with the ever changing moon
fall in love with the starry milkey way
and fall in love with always finding the truth

fall in love with the changing seasons
fall in love with the people in my life
fall in love with the plans of grand travel
fall in love with a coffee shop open mic night

fall in love with walks through red rocks
and fall in love with nerdy co workers who bring smiles
fall in love with watering my garden at dusk
and fall in love with rising above and beyond my trials

Falling in love with a dream i swear i won’t let die
fall in love with the secrets i harbor within my heart
already falling in love with whoever i will marry someday
and fall in love with all the way my future’s begun to start

and i’ve fallen in love with my guitar strings
fallen in love with swing dancing all night
fallen in love with my sisters, brother, and folks
but mostly, i’ve just fallen in love with being alive
