Moment(ou)s

March 3, 2010

Here is the smell of wines
And the vineyards in the south
Where the grapes of lust
Grow in the countryside sun
Fresh and ripened
By its warming light.
Like your eyes warm my heart
And start a fire
Somewhere inside me
That I’ve tried so hard to hide
For fear of failing
Or straining the silver thread
By which I have clung
For so long
To the moments
Which make up our time.
Moments unnoticed by other eyes
But moments that mean so much
And which have filled up
The empty days and nights
And have soothed and calmed
The itchy bite of the past
And sung me at last to a rest
Which I dare not upset
And so I weather the storm
And call you friend forever more.

Over The Hill (a song)

March 3, 2010

These are the lyrics to a song I wrote which you can listen to here.

I tried to make her stay
As she was turning away
I fell to my knees
And begged her please
To give it just one day.

It’s been a one long year since
The last sweet and honest kiss
Too many weeks
Since I saw those cheeks
That I’ll forever miss.

All that the time has shown
Is that it’s hard to be alone
And all it’s proved
Is how far love can move
From the place it once called home.

Now I’m trying to say farewell
To the wind and rain that fell
And say hello
To the sunny glow
That’s rising over the hill.

Laying in the TV light
Trying to find some words to write
But nothing’s there
And I don’t care
So I guess I’ll just go out tonight.

And try to meet a girl
A sweet and special girl
And take her out
And tell her about
How great she’d make my world.

Cos I’m trying to say farewell
To the wind and rain that fell
And say hello
To the sunny glow
That’s rising over the hill

I’d make her understand
That I wanna be her man
Get her to see
She’s special to me
And I wanna hold her hand.

And she’d help me to let go
Of the things I used to know
And give me a place
To hide my face
If the sadness ever shows.

Now its time to say farewell
To the rain and wind that fell
And say hello
To the sunny glow
That’s rising over the hill

Yes I’m saying hello
To that sunny glow
That’s rising over the hill

As I Leave (a song)

March 3, 2010

These are lyrics to a song I wrote, which you can listen to here

I am asking you to break my heart
Do it now, and I promise I’ll depart
If it means nothing to you
Like I heard you say
Then break my heart, and set me on my way.

I am asking you to close the door
On all the promises you gave before
Then I can leave you
I promise I’ll go
Just close the door, before the tears start to flow.

I am asking you to say goodbye
To all the times when in each other’s arms we’d lie
And say hello
To emptiness
Say goodbye and lay our love to rest.

I am begging you not to make me go
And turn my back on you, the girl who I love so
It just feels so wrong
For this to happen tonight
So don’t make me go and we can make things right.

I am asking you to break my heart
One last time and then your new life can start
Cos it means nothing to you
Now I finally see
So break my heart, but don’t watch me as I leave
Break my heart, but don’t watch me as I leave.
