  TOMORROW

  September comes tomorrow

  bringing signs of winter days

  guided by a black crow

  and the wicked winds they blow

  They chase away my horses

  ‘cause those wicked winds they know

  yes those wicked winds they know

  Tomorrow comes, no sign of trouble

  tomorrow comes, no use to struggle

  tomorrow always comes a day too soon

  just a little bit too soon

  The reaper comes tomorrow

  bringing death with no delays

  guided by a black crow

  from the wicked lands below

  Spare my pale white horses

  you’re just here for me, I know

  yes you’re here for me, I know

  Tomorrow comes, no sign of trouble

  tomorrow comes, no use to struggle

  tomorrow always comes a day too soon

  just a little bit too soon

  Don’t let September come this year

  the road ahead is so unclear

  tomorrow comes with signs of trouble

  tomorrow comes and brings a struggle

  Don’t you let the reaper near

  make the bad man disappear

  let us ride our pale white horses

  let us live without remorses

  ‘cause tomorrow always comes a day too soon

  just a little bit too soon

  NOVEMBER CHILD

  What good is love

  if you can’t feel it every day?

  What good is trust

  if it doesn’t go all the way?

  What good is talk

  if all words can’t be spoken?

  What good is a rule

  if it can easily be broken?

  Oh, my sweet November child

  you’ve got me running wild

  What good is a lock

  if you’ve opened all doors?

  What good is my life

  if I’m not all yours?

  What good is being first

  if there’s no one to beat?

  What good is being free

  if you’re living on the street?

  Oh, my sweet November child

  you’ve got me running wild

  What good is a sailor

  if he can’t tie any knots?

  What good is a penny

  if you won’t share your thoughts?

  What good is a well

  if your wish doesn’t come true?

  What good is anything

  if memories are all I have of you?

  Oh, my sweet November child

  you’ve got me running wild

  COME WITH ME

  Come live with me under the stars

  we’ll run away into the wild

  don’t want to live behind these prison bars

  Come sit with me next to a fire

  let it burn on through the night

  I’ll promise you I’ll never be a liar

  And we could build our wooden place

  and paint it with the love we share

  you always said we don’t need much space

  Just come away with me…

  Come swim with me in coolest lakes

  I’ll hold you close, you know I will

  let’s see if we have what it takes

  Come stay with me in forests green

  so far away from city lights

  I’ll show you love you have never seen

  And we could build our wooden place

  and paint it with the love we share

  you always said we don’t need much space

  Just come away with me…

  ELECTRIC BABY

  Tell me now

  electric baby

  what will you do

  when the lights go out

  Tell me now

  electric baby

  must we stop

  or can you go on without

  In total darkness

  don’t leave me standing

  don’t you be heartless

  don’t leave me hanging

  My kind of loving

  will make you breathless

  my kind of loving

  still makes you restless

  So come on (come on)

  electric baby (my baby)

  don’t need no wire (oh no)

  don’t need no cable (no no)

  Just come on (come on)

  electric baby (my baby)

  I need you right now (oh yeah)

  right on this table (yeah yeah)

  In total darkness (come on)

  don’t leave me standing (my baby)

  don’t you be heartless (oh no)

  don’t leave me hanging (no no)

  My kind of loving (oh yeah)

  will make you breathless (yeah yeah)

  my kind of loving (oh yeah)

  still makes you restless (yeah yeah)

  MESSAGE OF LOVE AND SIGHS

  Pay no attention to my voice

  it’s not the best but I have no choice

  just listen to this song I wrote

  it’s all for you love, note for note

  Hear my message

  of love and sighs

  Hear my message

  flowing through the skies

  Oh, my darling

  still love you when you make me cry

  Oh, my darling

  I’ll love you ‘til the day I die

  I’ll love you…

  Do you feel my message

  of love and sighs

  Do you feel my message

  flowing through the skies

  Oh, my darling

  still love you when you make me cry

  Oh, my darling

  I’ll love you ‘til the day I die

  I’ll love you…

  There’s my message

  of love and sighs

  There’s my message

  flowing through the skies

  Oh, my darling

  still love you when you make me cry

  Oh, my darling

  I’ll love you ‘til the day I die

  I’ll love you…

  YOU CAUGHT ME

  Once, looked into your eyes

  bloody red, but how they glow

  Twice, saw my own demise

  days or years, it’s coming though

  Come, feel my heart collapse

  knowing what you’ll do to me

  Now, fall for all your traps

  hanging from a willow tree

  Gone, looking for a fix

  to help me on my feet again

  So, tired of your tricks

  sleeping in the lion’s den

  Still tell me you need me

  and say that you got me

  things that you taught me

  a rope and you caught me

  Still tell you I need you

  and never mislead you

  things that you taught me

  a rope and you caught me

  So, tired of your tricks

  running from the lion’s den

  Gone, looking for a fix

  to get me on my feet again

&n
bsp; Now, fall for all your traps

  cutting down that willow tree

  Come, feel my heart collapse

  aware of what you’ll do to me

  Twice, saw my own demise

  tried escape, still coming though

  Once, looked into your eyes

  forever love just how they glow

  Still tell me you need me

  and say that you got me

  things that you taught me

  a rope and you caught me

  Still tell you I need you

  and never mislead you

  things that you taught me

  a rope and you caught me

  GOODBYE

  They say the Lord works in mysterious ways

  but where’s the mystery in taking someone’s life

  when you died it felt like I got stabbed with a knife

  and this here is not some transitional phase

  I have your date tattooed on my wrist

  but the ink on my skin does not mean a thing

  I’d give my whole arm to have you back at my wing

  and until we meet again, know you will be missed

  They say the movie of your life plays out before you go

  but yours was cut short and left without a happy ending

  Though I wasn’t at your funeral, your grave I’ll be attending

  and this is not just some phase, from this I’ll never grow

  You were the only person in this world I could truly call a friend

  now I’m left to walk alone with all these fakes around

  No matter how long I walk, a soul like yours can never be found

  and no matter how much time will pass, my broken heart will never mend

  They say time heals all wounds, but the scars will remain

  life, it seems, still goes on, but the sky’s a different color

  Days go by and seasons fly, but my pain’s not getting smaller

  and in the end of every day, my poker face I can’t maintain

  I still break down and I still cry, not knowing reasons why

  Why you left and who took you, if it’s the Lord I’ll kill him too

  for taking you far too soon and leaving me here without a clue

  and this is hard, but until we meet again I must say goodbye

  LOST INSIDE

  If you find yourself lost inside your head

  nowhere left to go and nowhere right to stay

  honey, think of me and how we used to be

  let your memories create a smile for you

  Let your memories create a smile for you

  You can run outside in the pouring rain

  get your clothes all wet and wash away the pain

  then by the fire light collect your thoughts tonight

  and just make it like that each and every day

  And just make it like that each and every day

  You’ve got to hide your tears

  don’t you let them stay on your pretty face

  make them go away, ‘cause this life’s not hard, no

  we just make it like that each and every day

  We just make it like that each and every day

  So if you find yourself lost and all alone

  in your heart is where you’ll always find a home

  honey, think of me and how we used to be

  let your memories create a smile for you

  Let your memories create a smile for you

  MOONRISE EXPRESS

  Come board upon Moonrise Express

  there are some things I must confess

  My body is strong, my mind is tired

  don’t want to grow old dead inside

  long gone the days I felt inspired

  the child within has left my side

  In pen and paper I confide

  surrender to the waiting worlds

  no more matters to decide

  the grip of death, how strong it holds

  Come board upon Moonrise Express

  nature’s bed, your last address

  The moons of Mars I claim as king

  no monuments, no secret seal

  so far behind me distant spring

  long gone the days when I would kneel

  On my head I wear no crown

  six feet of dirt and one big stone

  and on it tales how I went down

  let this grave here be my throne

  Come board upon Moonrise Express

  nature’s bed, your last address

  LIFE FOR SALE

  I’m selling my life

  to the highest bidder

  the way things are going

  don’t think I’ll reconsider

  I’m asking the devil

  to call out his price

  my soul for some whiskey

  it sounds kind of nice

  Come buy yourself a life

  not really worth living

  the thoughts of my future

  have been truly deceiving

  I’m selling my life

  to whoever will pay

  the price is not high

  but all saints stay away

  The life here for sale

  has done nothing good

  the way things have been

  don’t know how it could

  Come shifters in suits

  and call out your price

  a bottle of whiskey

  it sounds kind of nice

  A FOOL’S DESIRE

  I want to dream what the blind men dream

  go inside their head and follow the brightest beam

  that guides them through all the darkness of the day

  when the sounds align to form a different way

  I want to know what the wise men know

  so many secrets, but they never overflow

  just stay calm inside and everything will be alright

  as the bullet cuts through the peaceful night

  As the life around me changes

  you are the only constant in my life

  honey, I want you in my book until I run out of pages

  I want to hear what the deaf men hear

  do they somehow live their lives a bit more clear

  when the sounds align to form a different way

  that guides them through all the darkness of the day

  I want to feel what the killers feel

  when they take another life against their will

  as the bullet cuts through the peaceful night

  just stay calm inside and everything will be alright

  As the life around me changes

  you are the only constant in my life

  honey, I want you in my book until I run out of pages

  THE FATAL SUMMER

  A year has passed

  I still can’t forget

  afraid of a man

  I have never met

  Always thought you’d wait for me

  funny how life turned out to be

  The fatal summer

  I still remember

  when like a loser

  I would surrender

  I pushed you as far away as one can be

  funny how life turned out for me

  And even after

  when you came back

  my thoughts would often

  fade to black

  The lonely nights would bring about

  all the fears I could live without

  Am I still the one

  your heart desires?

  Am I still the one

  who lights your fires?

  So many things I could live without

  all the fears I can’t talk about

  PARIS

  The Sun has come up

  and I’m sitting by a foggy window

  with you by my side and I watch

  as you drink the hot coffee from your Paris cup

  You’re wearing my shirt

  bought long ago

  wouldn’t you know, how t
he years have gone by

  and I wonder if you’re still hurt

  How long was your night

  when you couldn’t sleep

  from all the words I now wish I would keep

  and I wonder why more must we fight

  I look into your eyes

  tired from the tears that in your pillow rest

  and you stare back at me

  as I promise you our love can only rise, rise, rise

  Then I kiss your lips

  and I promise you this, my love, I promise you this

  as we grow old, together we’ll stay

  and as the years come, we’ll have more of those Paris trips

  Then I kiss your lips

  and I promise you this, my love, I promise you this

  as we grow old, together we’ll stay

  and as the years come, we’ll have more of those Paris trips

  AUTHOR’S NOTES

  I feel kind of bad for posting this series in the ‘poetry’ section, since it’s not really poetry, just songs in my head.

  I think this is the first time I’ve used pink, anywhere. I don’t wear pink, don’t even like the color much, but for some reason I decided to use it on the cover.

  Finished another short story recently - ‘Knights Of Bourde’, will be publishing it next month. I have also started gathering material for a new ‘Ramblings’ compilation, but it’s going to be a while before it’s done and ready. And that’s about it.
