next time, treat her like a lady


you started off sweet always calling her baby
then the mean itched in with smug little sayings,
with advice that made her feel like a small town nobody
then you offered to show her the world, and gave her nothing…

she went from glowing like angel in the southern fields,
to blending into the gray of your shadow in the street…
she ain’t showin’ it, but somewhere deep down, she bleeds,
because man, you just ain’t treatin’ her like a lady.

makin’ her wait in the car, and open her own doors,
don’t ask her about her days, just brag about all of yours,
and you stopped singing her songs, and holding her hand,
and you got a small little group of girls, strung along for a chance…

you’re a mean mister who’s got an ego bigger than this town.
you only wanted her so you could make yourself the brightest star around.
but pretty soon she is gonna have enough and break out…
she’s an angel, and if you won’t, someone else will help her figure that out…

you started off sweet, always calling her baby…
man, someday you’re gonna wish you had treated her like a lady…
when she’s glowing in the Texas sunset on a painted hillside…
kissing her cowboy, who holds her tight to his strong side…

and they ride away.

Coyotes, Dust, and the Cost of Love


now go go, just let it all go,
somebody’s gonna go fetch her, you know…
don’t think twice, we both know you can’t do this alone,
so go go go, go bring her back home…

and i feel the earth’s heart beat, under my feet
pulling me back, it’s hypnotizing,
do you believe in fate? do you believe in grace?
do you believe that we were made to change?

oh go go, go bring her back home real quick,
without her, you’re whole world ain’t worth a lick…
go go, the moon swells into a bright enough glow,
for you to ride through the night, and bring her back home…

oh oh oh, the coyotes howl echos in the wind,
she hears it and feeds on the rush of adrenaline,
the pounding hoof beats and the cloud of dust,
charge in the hot summer night with the reality of love…

it’s a chase, it’s a fight, it’s a battle, it’s life
it’s a flash, it’s a thunder, it’s the wild, it’s the wonder,
it’s the bang and the crash, it’s the peace in the aftermath,
it’s the years it’s the tears, it’s the glory, it’s the fears

and it’s the up and down, it’s the distance, it’s this town…
it’s the wrong, it’s the right, it’s the battle cry,
it’s the pain and the gain, it’s always been the same…
it’s the sober it’s the drunk, it’s the cost of love…

i flew too far, you flew too fast…


I flew too far, you flew too fast,
we both agreed, we’d never last,
only took a moment to turn us into the past,
costing us both a lifetime of looking back…

you chose the East, I chose the West,
seemed no point to consider a nest,
but since that day when we both left,
every view since then has been second best…

because after having such a perfect friend,
switching places, breaking each other’s winds,
can you ever fly with another again?
without all the excitement becoming pretend?

and could I have known how hard the channel’s winds would rush?…
could you have realized how deeply your heart would be crushed?
oh if we had known, even across the globe, that there was no escape…
and that hardly any one else is bold enough to fly these days..?.

well if i’m honest, i’d rather fly with you…
but you flew to the sun, and I, i flew to the moon,
it was like that dream, when you wake up too soon,
never got to resolve, never found my way back to you…

the Rush away


Take me to the wind
and make me feel alive again…
take me to the sea.
and hold me with your love for me..

rushing waterfall in the night
starry fireflies dancing in flight
adrenaline rush of a false night scare
coming undone as you touch my hair…

the passionate burst of colors i see
when your hand reaches around me
then as i realize this could be everyday
i back up into the grey.. & run away…

windy spirit


I think I’m a crazy free spirit
bound to roam the earth like the wind
no one can really harness my power
always just passing through again

i want to settle down eventually you know…
but alas, it is not meant to be…
I shall be the cause of many a storm…
but still much loved as the summer breeze…

the wind has rainbows and sunshine as it’s companions
but always moves around on it’s own
So unless i find a cloud willing to always change for me
i shall always be free, and thus alone…

control ain’t what you think


the rapid breathing got caught in a gasp…
when the door let cold night wind flood the scene…
he saw the fire in her stoney grey eyes…
“baby, calm down… get control before you do anything…”

He turned into a dark shadowy blur her mind,
and his voice became a numb humming as he spoke…
oh what a sorry excuse for a fool was he,
to think words could control the lava behind the seal he just broke…

“Oh you are one to talk about restraint!
tell me, all about how you never loose control, indeed…
I told you to leave as you please, with only one catch…
if you ever cheat before that, I will destroy your everything…

So you went a little crazy yourself, with that scum?
decided to yourself, just for tonight, to have a little fun?…
well darlin’ you know, i want to go crazy and have some fun too…
So now, it’s my turn to get out of control, and play with you…”

By now the little mistress was inching toward the door,
abandoning the frozen adulterer still on the bed…
“Honey, you’re not part of this game, but you can play too
if you move another inch, you will be next to be dead”

He stared into her icey grey eyes
as the wind whistled around the gun
“Baby, please… calm down, i’m sorry”
‘Let’s start with freeze tag, you’re it…so run!”

things only got colder as the night turned grey then black…
all pleads for mercy merely sounded like buzzing bees…
shooting at shadows, killing all the monsters in her life…
Oh but when she wakes up tomorrow, she won’t remember a thing…

because she went a little crazy got out of control
let the demons take over that live within her soul…
and after her shower & a sleep in soft satin sheets,
her sane self knows not, the murderer she harbors beneath…
and for all she knows, she’s in control of everything….
