Dia de los muertos

Hold on, Holy Ghost Go on, hold me close Better run, here we come It’s the day of the dead Hold on, Holy Ghost So long to the ones you know Better run, here we come It’s the day of the dead This is exactly what has to be done, it happened so gradually It’s…

The Invitation

You and your smile Hold a strange invitation Somehow it seems We’ve shared our dreams But where? Time after time In a room full of strangers Out of the blue Suddenly you are there Wherever I go You’re the glow of temptation Glancing my way In the gray of the dawn And always your eyes…

Plum Season

My mother loved the summer But not for the weather She loved the mid-season plums June, July, August sweet ones My father kept them plenty Always stocked in our pantry Some ripe and some well past peak Till she was too sick to eat Still at my childhood home The only home that I’ve known…

Let’s ride

Bicycle bicycle bicycle I want to ride my bicycle bicycle bicycle I want to ride my bicycle I want to ride my bike I want to ride my bicycle I want to ride it where I like You say black I say white You say bark I say bite You say shark I say hey…

Perfect Doll

Places, places, get in your places Throw on your dress and put on your doll faces. Everyone thinks that we’re perfect Please don’t let them look through the curtains. Picture, picture, smile for the picture Pose with your brother, won’t you be a good sister? Everyone thinks that we’re perfect Please don’t let them look…

The Only Place

We were born with sun in our teeth and in our hair When we get bored we like to sit around, sit around and stare At the mountains, at the birds, at the ocean, at the trees We have fun, we have fun, we have fun when we please We wake up with the sun…

Lazy Days

Today I don’t feel like doing anything I just wanna lay in my bed Don’t feel like picking up my phone So leave a message at the tone ‘Cause today I swear I’m not doing anything. Uh! I’m gonna kick my feet up Then stare at the fan Turn the TV on, throw my hand…

Unicorns

I was born a unicorn I missed the ark but I could’ve sworn you’d wait for me I was born a unicorn I could of sworn you believed in me. Then how come all the other Unicorns are dead? Put your crystal’s under my pillow Send your epistle to my bedfellows If I stop believing…

Autumn Mood

Autumn leaves under frozen souls, Hungry hands turning soft and old, My hero cried as we stood out there in the cold, Like these autumn leaves I don’t have nothing to hold. Handsome smile, wearing handsome shoes, Too young to say, though I swear he knew, And I hear him singing while he sits there…

The Tree House

When I woke I took the backdoor to my mind and then I spoke I counted all of the good things you are and that list of charms was longer than my chain of broken hearts and when the day was done I figured I had already lost from the start – from the start…

Season of change

Season of change life feels so strange Look into my eyes do you see the truth I’m lost and alone feelings unknown Come to me stronger than before On winds of time my soul will fly The angels are knocking at my door Oh now I need to be free From all this hatred I…

Comfort

We spent our days in contemplation Too much too soon and though it hurts to let it linger on and on You’re all I need What will my heart allow When loneliness holds me down So move closer and comfort me now Move over if you care for me But I guess you can’t come…
