Just Until Sundown
Spent too many hours holding up walls
Standing in corners and clenching my jaw
Watching you watching the ones that i wanted to be
Blaming this all on the moment
Blaming this all on my views
Blaming the mood on the music
Blaming it all on you, all on you and me
All on you and me
Give up what you think you have to say.
Formalities weaken the meaning that you'd convey.
In truth hidden in the veiled insults,
Have failed results for everyone that lived that way.
The training spent on all your words
Was obvious in all we heard
Representing your best interests
While wishing us
The paddle is broken,
Is served in full.
The welts are faded
And pain still lingers
As it should.
The lone receiver
Of empty compliments
And bought in full.
New Year's Project
Your hands didn't move
Well neither did mine.
New Years will bring
So much to say
But nothing comes out right
Both of us left without words
Both of us lost in this world
It's softer than ever before.
And you were the outline
Pictures Of Shorelines
If you insist on picture of shorelines
Then I insist on pages of your lines
Meant for me, to be sent to me.
Remember watching the storms from the lifeguard stand.
Remember feeling the tingling in my fingertips,
When I touch your lips.
And I recall how you sat on the same side of me,
It really seems that you'll always be on my side.
You're my best side.
Snowbirds And Townies
Fountains and flourescent lights.
When season has come
The snowbirds have crowded the nights.
And old townies are tired
Of the beaches and bars
Being packed so tight.
And bridges, and traffic, and inlets,
Are locked in their fight.
And on these boats,
