  FORGIVE AND FORGET

  To forgive and forget

  we try to go back

  for the love we once had

  for the life we once led

  But the love once sacred

  lies broken and buried

  covered by sins

  forgotten it seems

  the feeling of dreams

  Awake from this nightmare

  return to my arms dear

  our love is not dust

  I'll pay any cost

  without you I'm lost

  We forgive and forget

  but we can never go back

  to the love we once had

  to the life we once led

  So where do we go -

  does anyone know?

  When all love has gone

  to nothing so fast

  I thought it would last

  Now I'm drowning inside

  'cause my heart can't forgive

  and my head can't forget

  the love we once had

  and the life we once led

  WILL YOU REMEMBER ME?

  Will you remember me when the days go by

  will you remember my name and the reasons why?

  Why you loved me for so long

  why you could never wait too long

  to see my face and hear my voice

  to kiss my lips and feel my touch

  Will you remember me when the nights get cold

  will you remember my song and the words so old?

  I love you until the end of times

  I love you girl, don't be surprised

  when you find out I still wait for you

  when you find out I'm still here for you

  Will you remember me when the times get rough

  will you remember how you used to act so tough?

  When I held you down so you could not move

  when I held you down and kissed you like I should

  to make you shiver and shake so bad

  to make you see all the love I had

  Will you remember me when he holds you close

  will you remember how you used to wear my clothes?

  'Cause they felt like I was there with you

  even when I wasn't there for you

  I loved you girl, I swear to you

  and I love you still, I'm here for you

  Will you remember me when the warm winds blow

  will you remember the day when you said hello?

  Remember your reasons, remember my words

  through all of the seasons, through all in this world

  my heart beats for you until the life in me drops

  my heart beats for you until the day that it stops

  HEAR ME NOW

  You better hear me now

  I'm not being mean

  you always know what I mean

  Why don't you come and lean

  on my shoulder

  I'll be your boulder

  I'll be your rock

  because you simply rock

  And now my world is shattered

  you're acting like I never mattered at all

  I'm scattered in the wind

  and in the wild a fire burns

  as my insanity turns

  it turns to dust

  I'm left outside to rust

  And now I'm not walking proud

  but I'm still walking around

  I'm gonna find the key

  and set my captured spirit free

  I'm gonna leave this place

  I'll disappear without a trace

  I'm gonna find my home

  even if I'm all alone

  standing in a crowd

  talking out loud

  where no talking's allowed

  I'll make sense of this day

  I'll get back on my way

  'Cause you came back with no trust

  and now I know that I must

  find another way

  or slowly get away

  but no, I cannot stay

  and you know what I mean

  I'm done being mean

  you better hear me now

  YOUR LOVE

  I can't stand your lying eyes

  when you tell me stories of your past times

  you turn my heart to ice

  when you tell me stories with those dead eyes

  I'd give my heart and soul

  for you I'd give it all

  just to have you back

  I can't stand the lack of your love

  your love...

  I keep waiting here for you

  every morning, yes I do

  until the day you come back

  come back with your love

  until the day you bring back

  bring back your love

  It took me all this time to find you

  and as long as you're near

  I will have no fear of things to come

  with your love I'll overrun

  all the dark until the Sun

  will rise again with your love

  your love...

  And all my wrongs

  you make them right

  and even though we sometimes fight

  I still want you every night

  by my side is where I need your love

  your love...

  So I keep waiting here for you

  every morning, you know I do

  until the day you come back

  come back with your love

  until the day you bring back

  bring back your love

  OUT ON THE SEA

  If I die before my time

  bury me out on the sea

  it's where my soul wants to be

  roaming free, out on the sea

  The summer's breeze, it will be me

  to cool you down and help you breathe

  And if I die before my time

  honey don't you cry too long for me

  you may learn to love another

  while I roam free, out on the sea

  The morning Sun, I'll bring for you

  to kiss your lips like I used to

  And if I die before my time

  don't forget this face of mine

  my darling please, remember me

  while I roam free, out on the sea

  The clear night stars will be from me

  to guide you on the path you'll be

  And if I die before my time

  there is one promise I will keep

  I'll meet you on the other side

  we can roam free, just you and me

  Up in heaven you will see

  reunited we shall be

  DUSTY ROAD

  On this dusty road I've found you

  you were just a lonely soul

  searching for your way

  and trying to get away

  from the life not meant to be

  so much out there to see

  Now I won't tell you where to go

  this dusty road I do not know

  and I won't follow you around

  'cause I'm not your servant hound

  I want to be the man who walks beside you

  I'm so tired of walking all alone


  Will you share this road with me

  or are there things you wish to see

  other places you want to be

  on your own, without me?

  Honey tell me now

  'cause I won't follow you around

  On this dusty road you found me

  a lost and lonely soul

  trying to make it on my own

  so tired of walking all alone

  Honey join me for a little while

  let's see what happens in a mile

  I promise I'll make it worth your while

  if you walk with me for just one mile

  SWEET LILLY

  Every day we play these games that can't be won

  and we put pictures in frames so we feel like one

  But honey,

  time ain't on your side

  and it sure as hell ain't on mine

  so don't you run and hide

  come on over and let's walk the line

  Now honey,

  we might find joy

  or we might find sorrow

  but as long as I'm your boy

  I don't care about tomorrow

  I'll be forever yours if you take me

  and I'll be forever lost if you break me

  So honey,

  won't you come and hold my hand

  make me feel like I'm your one and only man

  won't you hold it 'til the end

  when we look back at how it all began

  'Cause honey,

  when you lay down next to me

  you put my heart and soul at ease

  don't let nothing bad get to me

  I'm begging you darling, please

  You know you have this effect on me

  sweet Lilly, I always want you next to me

  THE 11:37 TRAIN

  Girl, I'm leaving you...

  I said girl, I'm leaving you behind

  Gonna pack my bags

  and head out west

  gonna catch that train

  that 11:37 train

  Girl, I'm leaving this town...

  I said girl, I'm leaving this town behind

  I told you long ago

  I just can't take no more

  I'm gonna catch that train

  that 11:37 train

  Packed up my bags

  now I'm headed out west

  I'm leaving this place tonight

  I'm leaving this place behind

  And I've got nowhere to go

  but there's one thing that I know

  I'm gonna catch that train tonight

  I'm gonna leave you all behind

  Girl, don't you cry...

  I said girl, don't you cry for me

  I can hear my train is coming

  that 11:37

  came to take me into heaven

  my 11:37

  came to take me into heaven

  CAN'T FIND

  All the love in my heart you can never measure

  but you treat me so bad I can't find no pleasure

  Why can't we go back to the way that it was

  when trust was more than a simple coin toss

  I can't find no love

  I can't find no trust

  do you still feel for me

  and is it more than lust

  Can't find love

  can't find trust

  do you feel for me

  more than lust

  From these dark thoughts I get no release

  and even in my dreams I can't find no peace

  Howling wind in the cold, dark night

  is the only sound I'll hear tonight

  I can't find no love

  I can't find no trust

  and it hurts to see

  my baby lie to me

  Can't find love

  can't find trust

  it hurts to see

  when you lie to me

  And when the morning light awakens me

  why can't I find you sleeping next to me

  Another lonely day is passing by

  won't you tell me now all the reasons why

  I can't find no love

  I can't find no trust

  so should I go away

  or should I stay

  Can't find love

  can't find trust

  go away, oh

  I guess I must

  TELL ME

  I'm a traveling man

  but I'm stuck in one place

  I don't know if I can

  find a familiar face

  I'm trying to get on

  my way back to you

  but I just don't know

  what more must I do

  You used to tell me that you love me

  every night and day

  but all those words they just

  kind of went away

  and now I'm hoping they'll

  come back one day

  'Cause I need you to love me

  love me like you used to

  and I need you to hold me

  hold me like I'm used to

  'Cause now your eyes, they

  seem forever distant

  feels like your love was

  lost in an instant

  Come back darling

  and save me from this place

  Come back darling

  I really miss your pretty face

  Tell me,

  tell me darling...

  Tell me you love me

  every night and day

  say you will hold me

  and never go away

  Tell me you miss me

  whenever I'm away

  say you will kiss me

  until I'm old and grey

  Tell me we'll be fine

  as long as we're together

  say you'll be mine

  in any kind of weather

  Tell me,

  tell me darling...

  LONG WAY TO ROME

  I don't go to no church

  I don't follow no god

  I ain't that good

  and I ain't all bad

  but every once in a while

  I get over my head

  I open that bottle

  let the devil come in

  we talk for a while

  and he lets me win

  I get back in my car

  my home seems to far

  »You can make it!« he says

  »Don't think nothing less!«

  Driving back home

  a long way to Rome

  get the devil off my back

  find some comfort instead

  The light so divine

  if I crash I won't mind

  never cared 'bout myself

  won't leave nothing behind

  And the lights go away

  just a truck on its way

  snap back to the world

  I'm feeling so cold

  Is anyone here?

  Oh Lord, can you hear?

  I know I ain't good

  but I can't be all bad

  Guide me back to my home

  too tired to roam

  please keep me safe

  I swear I'll behave

  and I'll do my best

  won't go down with the rest

  DOWN ON ONE KNEE

  Look out through your window

  in the distance you'll see

  no more than one man

  down on his knee

  Another heart broken

  how long will it be?

  Right from the start

  I gave you my heart

  back from the dead

  and up to my head

  Rest asure I'll be here

  I love you my dear

  Long gone are the days

  of my wandering ways

  violins and roses

  each time the day closes

  Year after year

  out in the distance

  up on that hill

  guarding my lov
e

  I wait like a dove

  Reach out and come to me

  love, I'm down on one knee

  AUTHOR'S NOTES

  I've published the first two volumes towards the end of a month, so I guess I'll keep doing that for some reason; with the exception of next month - there will instead be a really short story for you to read.
