when the bridge gates fall

May 18, 2019

When you can’t make it home
When you’re stuck in a rut
When the roads are frozen over
When everything is shut
When hope is mirage
When there’s torment in your gut

When the bridge gates fall
When you’re walking in the trees
When the world opens up
When your heart gets a squeeze
When you’re finally together
When you’re overwhelmed with ease

Regular Joe in the Mushy Mushy Middle

May 11, 2019

I love to get along
I’m so sensible and wise
Always helping out the rich folks
Cuz I love to compromise

You can find me on the road
In the mushy mushy middle
With all my big money boys
And the dead armadillos

I’m a Regular Joe
And I love the common man
You know I love your daughter
I’m doing what I can

You can find me on the road
In the mushy mushy middle
With all my big money boys
And the dead armadillos

I’ve been taking their cash
For forty-seven years
I really oughta listen
When they sing in my ear

You can find me on the road
In the mushy mushy middle
With all my big money boys
And the dead armadillos

We sent away your jobs
And we called it free trade
But it worked out pretty well
Cuz all my friends got paid

You can find me on the road
In the mushy mushy middle
With all my big money boys
And the dead armadillos

You wanna save the world
And give the folks a fair shake
Do I look like Karl Marx?
Just give me a break

You can find me on the road
In the mushy mushy middle
With all my big money boys
And the dead armadillos

This Crazy Old World

April 27, 2019

.
It’s time to have another drink
Might even take a little toke
Look for some women and some song
Until my sorry ass is broke

Life’s a second hand store
It’s a box of loose ends
I’m gonna feed my bloody heart
Dance like it’s never gonna end

The numbers don’t add up
And the figures don’t compute
This crazy old world
Is just a big crap shoot

Life’s a second hand store
It’s a box of loose ends
I’m gonna feed my bloody heart
Dance like it’s never gonna end

I ain’t crying anymore

April 21, 2019

All my girlfriends say
I should forget you double-quick
You’re a cruel lying monster
And an evil little prick

You cracked me open
Like an egg
You poured my guts out
On the floor
You can grovel–you can beg
But I don’t
Love you anymore

I let you use my car
You stupid stinky little cheat
It smelled like cheap perfume
You left her panties on my seat

You cracked me open
Like an egg
You poured my guts out
On the floor
I just need
To stop the bleeding
Cuz you cut me to the core

Kicked my dog and slapped my Pa
You tried to f—k my friends
I gave the cops a statement
Now this nighmare’s gonna end

You cracked me open
Like an egg
You poured my guts out
On the floor
My tear ducts
All run dry
But I ain’t crying anymore

just say goodbye

April 6, 2019

Hamster Heart Doctor

We had some plans to meet
You were seven days late
You said your hamster had angina
And your cat had a date
You found a hamster heart doctor
In a faraway state

That’s the best story
You could fabricate

you don’t have say why
don’t make up
another lie
just say goodbye
just say goodbye

We had some plans to meet
But you just weren’t there
You said you couldn’t find your keys
And you had to wash your hair
You really needed a nap
There was nothing to wear
And three of your cousins
Got eaten by a bear

you don’t have say why
don’t make up
another lie
just say goodbye
just say goodbye

you almost killed me with your smile

March 19, 2019

I didn’t take it too well
When you said we were through
You got a stone for a heart
What’s the matter with you?

You almost killed me
With your smile
So I’ll be bleeding
For a while

You were the happiest thing
In my sad little life
Then you took out my heart
With a rusty old knife

I ain’t got nothing left
But tears
I’m gonna bleed
For forty years

I didn’t take it too well
When you said we were through
You laughed in my face
When I asked if you were true

left for dead

March 9, 2019

my heart went thru the ringer
my heart bruised and bled
my heart was abandoned
my heart was left for dead

Then you woke my heart up
With your laughter and your way
You showed my heart the sunshine
On a cold and rainy day

Love is like a river
The comfort that you bring
Love is like a river
Thawing in the spring

i love u like a puppy

February 2, 2019

i need to see you
every day
my insides hurt
when you’re away

i love you like a puppy
i couldn’t love you any more
i just wanna hold you
and curl up on the floor

you melt all my defenses
just by being you
you invigorate my senses
and fill me up with you

i love you like a puppy
i could live inside your gaze
you could make me happy
in a million different ways

this tender box of bone and skin

January 5, 2019

The thousand natural shocks that flesh
is heir to
are there to
remind you
you’re alive

every cut
and every kiss
says you’re real
and you exist

This dappled world we’re living in
this tender box
of bone
and skin

every cut
and every kiss
says you’re real
and you exist

don’t hump me and dump me and break my little heart

December 29, 2018

don’t hump me
and dump me
turn my insides into mush
don’t kiss me
and dismiss me
find somebody else to crush

kiss me long
and kiss me slow
hold my hand
and don’t let go

don’t hump me
and dump me
and cut me down to size
don’t tease me
and squeeze me
like a consolation prize

kiss me long
and kiss me slow
hold my hand
and don’t let go

don’t hump me
and dump me
and break my little heart
don’t hurt me
and desert me
and tear my life apart

kiss me long
and kiss me slow
hold my hand
and don’t let go
