Stoodup

December 22, 2013

toodup


so we had some plans to meet
it was gonna be my treat
just another broke appointment
i’ll have to live the disappointment
and you used to be so sweet

so you’re never gonna come
now my heart is going numb
i sat for about an hour
with a bunch of wilting flowers
how could I ever be so dumb?

so I guess this is the end
you only liked me for a friend
all your kisses and your laughter
didn’t mean a whole lot after
is it so easy to pretend?

does it give your heart a thrill
when you close in for the kill?
is it true that you believe
you only win when you deceive?
or is it just your only skill?

I’d Rather Sleep in a Tent

January 29, 2013

tent


If you’re finished lovin me
Then that’s all you have to say
A loveless bed’s no place for me
So I’ll be on my way

I’d rather sleep in a tent
Among the hopeless and the damned
Than face another nitetime spent
With my heart in the sand

Some folks’ll straggle on for years
With a love that’s dead and dry
I ain’t drinkin my own tears
You’ll need to find another guy

I’d rather sleep in a tent
Among the hopeless and the damned
Than face another nitetime spent
With my heart in the sand

When good lovin turns to bad
Doctors cannot resuscitate
Stand and salute the love we had
When it was good, it was great

I’d rather sleep in a tent
Among the hopeless and the damned
Than face another nitetime spent
With my heart in the sand

Things that Matter

August 20, 2012

Pack a lunch
And fix her face
Today your little girl’s
Gonna join the race
She’s got a bag
That’s half her size
Time to swallow tears
And kiss goodbye

Got no choice
But to let her go
It’s a mighty pain
No one else could know
One last hug
Wish her well
Things that matter
Hurt like hell

Tempers shattered
All your light
Now the golden glow
Is an endless night
She held you up
For half a life
Nothing prepares you
To lose a wife

Got no choice
But to let her go
It’s a mighty pain
No one else could know
One last hug
Wish her well
Things that matter
Hurt like hell
