Sometimes it works, sometimes not.
Most of my lyrics are written from personal experience, some are me projecting myself onto another character or...
My Angel Dog - The angel dog
High up in the courts of heaven today
a little dog angel waits,
with the other angels he will not play,
but he sits alone at the gates.

I sit up on this shelf with a twinkle in my eye,
A smile waiting to been seen when you pass me by

And pick me up, giving me...
It was significant

Loosing Someone You Love Is More Painful Than Anything...
Eveybody wants to go to heaven
but nobody wants to die
I can't fear death no longer
I've died a thousand times
Why explore the universe
when we don't know ourselves?
A poet? I don't know. Perhaps.
Pondering, dreaming as minutes lapse.
The world around is far away,
Though the one inside I have fallen prey.
I have been thrust into a tunnel and...

and her casual wear fascination needing a
quick fix lead her across the...

Gilded World - Confusion surrounds.
Which way's up and what lies down,
With no one to blame?

destined to hurt.
then we part,
& we let down our guard -
oblivious to the pain

braced against the brittle winds

no traveller in the dark
no footprints decorate the expanse

I see it
When I close my eyes I see
Every chance I would have given
For someone to save me...
But now in my eyes
there's only darkness
In my eyes there is...

Tears On A Tin Roof - Tears on a tin roof
The fiddler sat
Upon my roof
He had no feet

Tell Me What You Think - Waltz around the room, with a glaze in your stare.
In your tuxedo suit. I'll give it a name. Lower

in a darkness I can't follow.
These evenings when I sit and try
