Bohemian Song October 27, 2013

Here I am

in the October sun

Not looking for love

just looking for fun

~

A nomad at heart

I don’t stay around long

I put miles behind me

with a bohemian song

~

Drinking a  beer

hat pulled way down low

It’s not even five

but I’m itching to go

~

A nomad at heart

I don’t stay around long

I put miles behind me

with a bohemian song

~

No chains to hold me

no people in my way

I go where the wind blows

never will I stay

~

A nomad at heart

I don’t stay around long

I put miles behind me

with a bohemian song

~

This life is for me

I like it better this way

I see what I want

something different each day

~

A nomad at heart

I don’t stay around long

I put miles behind me

with a bohemian song

~

I put miles behind me

with a bohemian song.

my road

You call out my name but I pretend

not to hear

It is a continuous, tiresome dance of hateful pride

and hard regrets

Neither of us will ever win, yet neither

will we give

We fox-trot and spar with venomous words uttered

without punch

Going through the motions, not caring enough

to be real

This is our life, this is our dance; they are

playing our song.

Your lips touch mine like a butterfly’s wing

you taste of  sweat and  long days of spring

lingering, tasting, taunting me

I love how you and I become we.

~

Hold me close and let’s dance real slow

hold me now and never let go

‘cuz you and I were made for one another

you and I love like no other.

~

My paint touches canvas  and I feel your gaze

thoughts of you still put me in a haze

a shiver runs up and down my spine

I knew at first glance you’d always be mine.

~

Hold me close and let’s dance real slow

hold me now and never let go

‘cuz you and I were made for one another

you and I love like no other.

~

I awake with a start, tears on my face

Looking around, I don’t recognize this place

This is not our home, something’s not right

You should be here beside me at night.

~

Hold me close and let’s dance real slow

hold me now and never let go

‘cuz you and I were made for one another

you and I love like no other.

~

My heart breaks again as I remember the pain

Our carefree life ended at 3rd and Main

The squeal of the tires the sound of breaking glass

On that cold winter night from this life you passed.

~

Hold me close and let’s dance real slow

hold me now and never let go

‘cuz you and I were made for one another

you and I love like no other.

~

I dream at night of our time together

How we loved to dance in the stormy weather

Now  I spend each day all alone

I no longer dance now that you are gone.

~

Hold me close and let’s dance real slow

hold me now and never let go

‘cuz you and I were were made for one another

you and I love like no other.

~

Hold me close and let’s dance real slow

hold me now and never let go

‘cuz you and I were were made for one another

I will always love you like no other.

You’ve Got a Friend January 6, 2013

 

♫ ♪ This is a great song to sing along to and think of someone who means a lot to you. James Taylor’s family has also suffered with mental illness, and I feel he speaks to me when he sings.

When you’re down and troubled and you need a helping hand
and nothing, whoa, nothing is going right.
Close your eyes and think of me and soon I will be there to brighten up even your darkest nights.

You just call out my name, and you know where ever I am
I’ll come running to see you again.
Winter, spring, summer, or fall, all you have to do is call and I’ll be there, yeah, yeah,
you’ve got a friend.

If the sky above you should turn dark and full of clouds
and that old north wind should begin to blow,
keep your head together and call my name out loud.
Soon I will be knocking upon your door.
You just call out my name, and you know where ever I am
I’ll come running to see you again.
Winter, spring, summer, or fall, all you have to do is call and I’ll be there.

Hey, ain’t it good to know that you’ve got a friend? People can be so cold.
They’ll hurt you and desert you. Well, they’ll take your soul if you let them,
oh yeah, but don’t you let them.

You just call out my name, and you know where ever I am
I’ll come running to see you again.
Winter, spring, summer, or fall, all you have to do is call, Lord, I’ll be there, yeah, yeah,
you’ve got a friend. You’ve got a friend.
Ain’t it good to know you’ve got a friend. Ain’t it good to know you’ve got a friend.
Oh, yeah, yeah, you’ve got a friend.
