Cold like you're born with a rose and a thorn stuck in your side
Beg for the warmth, give the rose to a girl, give that thorn to your pride
I didn't trust you at all very much when you came that night
But I was a wreck and you were mess
It was love at first sight

Life can be so cruel
Tell me what'd it do to you

I found the truth that was buried in you like a hair on your head
Once it was plucked all the thoughts that were stuck
Came out and they read

Life can be so cruel
Tell me what'd it do to you

I'll see that fight again
This ain't no regular place
And when it's trite again
This ain't no regular place
I'll see that night again
This ain't no regular place

Calm and collect you did what they expect from a well tamed lie
It was tried and unclear you were covered in fear and broke out in the light

Life can be so cruel
Tell me what'd they do to you

I've often thought this would never come full circle. This solo music thing. Music has been my companion since childhood. Hope you enjoy the notes I've selected and arranged, if even just a little bit.

Track Name: Feel The Warmth
I have climbed the mountains
I've swam the rivers and the stream
I have seen my doorstep in a million of my dreams
So let me go

When I feel that sunlight on my skin
See the darkness creeping in
I just close my eyes and feel the warmth again

I witnessed nations fading
I watched them crumbled in a day
I've seen the bounds of love
I know the power when it stays

When I feel that sunlight on my skin
See the darkness creeping in
I just close my eyes and feel the warmth again

The road is never ending
As far as I can see
Just let me go

When I feel that sunlight on my skin
See the darkness creeping in
I just close my eyes and feel the warmth again
I can see the sunlight on my skin
See the shadows creeping in
I just close my eyes and feel the warmth again
Track Name: Something To Say
Oh pretty face
How did you end up in this place
With no regard and no disgrace
To where you've been

I'm a victim of your theft
So let me get this off my chest
I gave you good you gave me back the rest
As you saw fit

Someone should be holding their breath
If not for me there would be nothing left
You take all the time and wants you'll ever need
To get my soul and lead me off helplessly

Get up off the ground
Let me hear your thoughts turn into sound
About your enemies
They're all around and in your head

Someone should be holding their breath
If not for me there would be nothing left
You take all the time and wants you'll ever need
To get my soul and lead me helplessly
I became the sleepless one
I followed my dreams till I came undone
For better or worse it was a good mistake
We knew it was one that you could never make

You've got something to say
Don't take it away
Track Name: Never The Groom
Turn around when it's not over
Give me what I need
Turn around when it's not over
Give me what I see

Pull me down like you're my savior
Carry me to peace
I'm not afraid of what you're saying
Your thoughts are what's dangerous to me

The fool drunk on my shoulder
Like an angel without wings
Pay no mind as you get older
And there's nothing to do

Like a child collects from his fathers voice
You will grow up fast
As he looks to see that he has no choice
His time has come to pass

The fool drunk on my shoulder
Is the life in ever room
There's a bride in every corner
But he'll never be the groom
Track Name: All of These
It's over now
We've fought for too long
There's nothing left
To fill the wrong
And consequence has set me up
To fall in love
So fall I must

You wear yourself so well sometimes
The air in the way you smell
Sometimes

You bite my tongue and kick my crutch
Screaming dance for me babe, if you love me so much
It could be good for me
You'd be my better leg
You'd be my better eyes
And be my better head
Be my better sound
Be my turn around
Oh be my come down
Be my inside out
Maybe then you'd see
That I could really be
All of these things
All of these

You wear yourself out well sometimes
I watched the way you fell
Sometimes
Track Name: Places Left to Go
Where'd you go
Where you coming from
I want to know
How your song is sung
You're running free
It's in your soul
You've been singing that tune since you were 8 years old

Where do you call home
Where you've been or where you go
Who do you call friends
Who they are or who they've been
You've got places left to go

Darling girl
Who you running from
I'll be around
When the day is done
I've been waiting all this time
Just to hear your voice and know that you're alright

Where do you call home
Where you've been or where you go
Who do you call friends
Who they are or who they've been
You've got places left to go
And bridges to burn
But there's someone waiting for your sweet return
Track Name: Last Man Standing-
The neighbor on my left won't ever smoke his cigarette
He just holds it in his hands for the thought
One day he'll light up and breathe it all in
And wish he'd never tried the thing at all

What are you supposed to do when you're sitting by yourself
And the bars soak up your friends most every night
He wants to be in love, but there's nobody left
So he sits there and regrets that feeling high

I've got a friend that never calls me anymore
He was married before the ring was on her hand
I can't be mad I'm really jealous of the sorts
I wish I had someone to call again

What are you supposed to do when you're living all alone
And the bars soak up the romance every night
I can't trust the words that come spilling from my mouth
I don't trust the people I see all the time

The people on my left they talk about what they thinks best
For their friend to do with the man of her dreams
One says get rid of him the other says just wait
He might come around to saying what he means

They get their checks and they start walking to the door
They hug each others necks and say goodnight
She gets back in bed with a lover she adores
Ignores her only friends advice
Track Name: I'm Borrowed, I'm Blue
You were finding inspiration in the parts you covered up
Like a child not worth naming as the moments start to run
And the feelings come together
Making love inside your head
You're alone in stormy weather
Under the sheets
In-between the threads

You've been ripping out your closet for a look that you could shake
With an open mouth and empty pockets and a stranger in your place
The feeling comes together breathing life inside the air
With a ring inside your tether and a smile beneath your hair

Marry the idea that this is only for the time
The old, the new, the borrowed, the blue, and every piece of you on my mind

Suddenly the feelings go to waste
No one knows what happened or what changed for you
But you changed

Now you're finding inspiration in the things that we have done
And you hold the indication that war has been won
But it's creeping on you slowly like when you wake up in the morning
The feeling you don't know me like you thought you had before then
So marry the idea that this is only for the time
Track Name: Shadowbox
You dressed in secret, a surprise
That met me in the morning time
And I liked it, I won't lie
But this change of pace is hard on my life
Maybe you'll save me, it's unlikely
By the way our talks are going as of lately
You're the background in my shadowbox of bullshit
And you're in it
I came as fervent
But left as rigid

I bite the hand that feeds my mouth
I'm in control, but running out
So where's a place to hide my sin
The biggest room to lock them in
With my shadowbox of bullshit
And the feeling is not finished
It has a point and needs a witness
A purpose filled with second chances

I think I'm fading
By 29 I won't be waiting
For karma's grip to come and take me
And lay me down and empty body
Lay me down
