A beauty story

Step right up, and don’t be shy Because you will not believe your eyes She’s right here, behind the glass You’re gonna like her ’cause she’s got class You can look inside another world You get to talk to a pretty girl She’s everything you dream about But don’t fall in love She’s a beauty…

Sadness

My wounded rhymes make silent cries tonight My wounded rhymes make silent cries tonight And I’ll keep it like a burning Longing from a distance I ranted, I pleaded, I beg him not to go For sorrow, the only lover I’ve ever known Sadness is a blessing Sadness is a pearl Sadness is my boyfriend…

All night long

My heart beats a little faster When our eyes meet In the middle of a crowded room In knee deep testing waters I’ve got a feeling and I don’t know what to do, you Got me paralyzed, and I think I like it Caught me by surprise, I’m not usually like this, no Got me…

Baby it’s cold outside

I really can’t stay – Baby it’s cold outside I’ve got to go away – Baby it’s cold outside This evening has been – Been hoping that you’d drop in So very nice – I’ll hold your hands, they’re just like ice I ought to say no, no, no – Mind if I move in…

Decisions,decisions

Decisions But I want it all, so I get it all I wanna eat the whole cake I’m not sharing, I’m not sharing You should’ve learned how to bake Yes, I want it all, so I get it all I wanna eat the whole cake I’m not sharing, I’m not sharing Decisions But I want…

You’re electric, babe

Darker than the ocean, deeper than the sea You’ve got everything, you got what I need Touch me, you’re electric, babe Move me, take me from this place Movin’ to the tempo, show me what it takes Speeding up my heartbeat, playing in the flames Covered in your water and I’m feeling like a summer…

Attention

You’ve been runnin’ ’round, runnin’ ’round, runnin’ ’round throwin’ that dirt all on my name ‘Cause you knew that I, knew that I, knew that I’d call you up You’ve been going ’round, going ’round, going ’round every party in LA ‘Cause you knew that I, knew that I, knew that I’d be at one,…

Feels

Hey! Well nothing ever last forever, no One minute you’re here and the next you’re gone So I respect you, wanna take it slow I need a mental receipt to know this moment I owe Do you mind if I steal a kiss? A little souvenir, can I steal it from you? To memorize the…

I wish you were

In the dark of the night Those small hours Uncertain and anxious I need to call you Rooms full of strangers Some call me friend But I wish you were so close to me In the dark of night Those small hours I drift away When I’m with you In the dark of night By…

Peony

I want you to meet me at my houseboat Be sure and wear your little black rubber rain coat Write you a letter on thin lined note paper Hide it in the tree where the houseboat float Pulled a pully bone and make a fat wish Crawdad in the skillet, gonna catch a catfish Write…

Florida

White lines, pretty baby, tattoos Don’t know what they mean They’re special, just for you White palms, baking powder on the stove Cooking up a dream, turning diamonds into snow I feel you, pretty baby, feel me Turn it up hot, loving you is free I like it down, like it down way low But…

Womanize me

I’m not the first to tell you that I need you but I waited and I tried to understand Love’s one thing they don’t have that I can give you And I love you every day the best I can You run around looking for something different But now you’re home and I’m gonna treat…
