Still A Heart (Song)

April 18, 2010

A sinking ship is still a ship
Though its lost its way on its first trip
And slowly sinking down beneath the wild waves
For each man that’s lost, there’s one who’s saved.

And a broken heart is still a heart
Though it be tattered and torn apart
And its pieces scattered in the wild and howling wind
They can all be recovered in the end

And the last goodbye isn’t always the last goodbye
Though it can seem so at the time
And sometimes ‘No’ can seem as sweet as the first hello
And what is real is hard to know

Oh my heart still feels like my heart
Though once it was battered and blown apart
Cos someone came and she made it beat again
She put it back together just the same

Cos a broken heart is still a heart
Though its been tattered and torn apart
And its pieces scattered in the wild and howling wind
They can all be recovered in the end
They can all be recovered in the end

He met her by the arches
Down near where the church is
Where the songbird perches high
On the telephone wire

And as he took her hand and walked her
On down to the water side
He’d never felt so uncertain
About what was on his mind

And as they walked on into the city
She never looked so damn pretty
But she somehow wasn’t the same lady
He thought he used to know

But when they sat together by the river
And the sundown set her all a shiver
He wrapped his coat around her tight
And that seemed to set things right

For in that warming moment
He felt a future full of hopes and dreams
And the closeness got him forgetting
All the times in between

Then she stood up and walked away
He caught her up, only to hear her say
I don’t think it can ever work this way
I’m sorry

There didn’t seem much point in talking
So they just held hands and kept on walking
Looking all around, looking at the parking signs
Trying so hard to keep from crying

And they walked on back to the arches
Where the song bird still perches high
And they kissed once more and parted
Forever, and for the final time.

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.

Until You Smile (A Song)

February 14, 2010

A song I bashed out tonight. I’ve been reading this book called Guitar Man, about one thirtysomething’s quest to learn the guitar. One of the tips he got was to just try things out, so in that spirit i’ve attempted a rough bass/melody picking style, as opposed to just strumming. And this is the result. I’m quite pleased with it.

Hello (a happy song)

The lies continue as I give you yet another song. Its even rougher than usual due to the pace, so forgive me.
