The Ghost of Our Love

April 8, 2017

After all the things I done
I can never hurt enough
It ain’t my conscience talking
It’s the ghost of our love

I wake up in evening
Feel you breathing on my skin
Just the ghost of our love
It’s teasing me again

The ghost of our love
Is laughing in my face
Every time I try and find
Somebody to replace it

The ghost of our love
Reminds me all the time
I’m just another scoundrel
Who cannot face my crime

A Friend of a Friend

May 4, 2013

A friend of a friend
Says bigfoot’s alive
He walks his chihuahua
On Huntington Drive

A friend of a friend
Was sleeping on the lawn
He awoke in a room
And his kidneys were gone

A friend of my cat
Fell out of a plane
The cat limped away
With a minor sprain

A friend of a friend
Is completely insane
Cuz an earwig attacked
And ate up his brain

A friend of a friend
Dropped some mints in his soda
The resulting reaction
Made his kitchen exploda’

A friend of a friend
Keeps a clone in the freezer
With all his spare parts
He’s the healthiest geezer

A friend of a friend
Got a knock on the door
From a friend who died
Twenty years before

A friend of a friend
Saw some lights in space
Then he got probed
In a delicate place


I swear on my life
I’m not a gullible guy
I believe it all
Cuz my friends don’t lie
